Snap, Flatpak, AppImage, etc - are all attempts to make Linux more palatable to either proprietary software, or to software with reckless runaway complexity. Personally, I want neither, and will give no quarter to "solutions" for their "problems".

#Python tip: If a container can potentially contain itself, the __repr__() for that container should be wrapped with the recursive_repr() decorator.

c = Container()
c.add(c) # self-reference
print(repr(c)) # make sure this doesn't fail

gonna build a small startup where the business model is that americans pay me $5 and I teach them how to pronounce a single french word.

You too could say "auteur", "oeuvre", "rendez-vous", "je ne sais quoi", "avant guarde" and dozens more words correctly for a small sum!

Fedi usage PSA 

Don't. Use. Link. Shorteners.

Every link you post that's longer than 23 characters is treated as though it's 23 characters long.

Link shorteners do *nothing* except

1. Allow for folks to be tracked and their IP's exposed in some cases.
2. Obscure what you're linking and cause people not to trust that you're not going to link them something malicious.

Stop using them.
