Haha, Assignment Expressions will land in Python 3.8, but so far they're only in the changelog, not in the big "What's new" post. I was worried there for a sec!
Emily Morehouse (who authored the change) wrote a couple of days ago that she's in the process of finishing the docs, so all's well :)

The Tragedy of Systemd is a wonderful talk by Benno Rice, which I highly recommend to anybody with opinions on systemd: youtube.com/watch?v=o_AIw9bGog

He talks about attitude regarding change, and contempt culture, and the ideas that made systemd happen. It's a very informed calm discussion of both systemd features and community development. It's once again confirmed my positive impression of the BSD communities.

Oh wow, I definitely need to read Unsong. Apparently it is about magic entering the world though a glitch, and now there are kabbalistic workshops in Silicon Valley brute-forcing the Names of God (because those allow you to do magic). The non-spoilery interlude is bloody hilarious: unsongbook.com/interlude-%D7%A

I finished Persepolis Rising, the latest part of The Expanse (just in time for the new book to come out next month) and let me tell you – wow! Whenever I think I have The Expanse figured out, they take off to wildly different stories/perspectives/… I'm *super* happy with the series, as well as the fact that it's still ongoing. In many ways, the current book was a gamble, and at least for me it paid off tremendously. #scifi #amReading #expanse

ME: Okay I need one of my ten spare micro-usb cables

MICRO-USB CABLES: *hide from sight, giggling*

ME: DAMMIT

ME (5 mins later): okay I have a working alternative

MICRO-USB CABLES (spontaneously parading across my bed): HI THERE ARE TWENTY OF US NOW

With the debate over #Microsoft #Windows vs #GNU #Linux raging on, I look at why Windows is unquestionably the top choice in the foreseeable in terms of ease, #accessibility, and #ethics. Noble as #FOSS advocacy is, can it really compete, especially among #women, going forward?

It's just occurred to me that "Ken Doll" is Scots for "I know, babe"

TIL – Using conditional entries in .gitconfig to automatically manage #git identities based on the working directory. Nice!

In last week's blog post we said we were working on enabling a donor to send money to multiple creators at once instead of having to make multiple payments. Today we're happy to announce that this is now done for donations to European creators processed through Stripe.

Eventually we should be able to the same thing for donations to non-European creators as well, but we don't know yet when that will become possible.

To renew your donations, go to liberapay.com/about/me/giving/
