Trying to do some python pandas data frame manipulation and trying to use the to_datetime function seems to throw an exception with every date format? :doomguy:

Anyone have suggestions of a hosting service that can run very simple python scripts on a scheduled basis? Without costing a ton?

Recycling three generations of old Sony Vaio laptops. The work mostly ok, but are not needed by us anymore, run very hot and loud relative to newer laptops.

Anyone have suggestions of a hosting service that can run very simple python scripts on a scheduled basis? Without costing a ton?

I do like technology and programming, but as I age, I do wonder if the product of my work could do something more better/tangible in the real world than pushing and pulling values to/from virtual databases and displaying data in web browsers. I regret not being more involved with either robotics or perhaps some kind of embedded device development, but that's just not where my career has led so far.

Ok, where do you learn to give 30 minutes of dry presentation with live software demos (no crashes) and barely blink. This man is a .

Did you know in 2010 Apple released the source code for both MacPaint and QuickDraw library to the Computer History Museum?

I’m very interested in QuickDraw so I can realize my (fever) dream of recreating a modern OS that acts like Mac OS classic!

“QuickDraw is the Macintosh library for creating bit-mapped graphics... It consists of a total of 17,101 lines in 36 files, all written in assembler language for the 68000.”

Feeling like a boss for replacing the CR2032 battery in my car's key fobs after getting the "Key Fob Battery Low" message on my dashboard for about two weeks.

I have this perverse desire to create an OpenSource version of the Macintosh OS (classic pre-X). And I don't have the time, nor expertise to ever accomplish it 😂

I love Open Source:
Tried to install TiddlyWiki on node.js
Got errors apparently due to mismatch from my node version and version TiddlyWiki supports (undocumented dependency)

So trying to install nvm with brew and it seems to work except it doesn't work with bash: nvm: command not found

Why are Uranus & Neptune such brilliant shades of blue? What are the physics that drive their icy conditions? Where does heating & cooling occur in their atmospheres? @NASAGoddard scientists are gearing up to finally get to know the ice giants. Details: nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2019/ 

@brianl yeah, from my knowledge, python is usually the cleanest solution.

For NodeJS though, it can be as simple as
`import { ID3v2 } from 'id3v2';
const tag = new ID3v2('/path/to/test.mp3');
console.log(tag.title);`

If you do go the Node way, search on npm for "id3v2" or "id3-parser".
And if you get stuck, I'd be happy to help.

Wondering what might be a good language to do some homebrew apps for reading and writing file metadata and tags. I don't really want to use Java or C++, at minimum should work on Mac OSX, but ideally be easily cross-platform and have some existing library support for mp3. Wondering if or might be options but I'm less experienced with either

How is it that every single time I am going on vacation next week I work until 9 PM on the Friday night before and I still feel like I have unfinished business. What a way to “relax”

Choosing a theme:
- Looks good
- Uses standard jeckyll features
- ruby/ruby gem/dependencies setup and install works

Choose two

Is there a formal way on to retweet or quote tweet from ?

I see bots that just repost tweets verbatim, some other users link to tweets.

The speed at which Federated timeline updates itself makes it hard to read anything

Gosh, do I hate modern and their lifestyle devices!

Woke up 50 minutes late because the alarm did not go off once again. I always have two alarms and none of them triggered. Almost missed a crucial deadline and had to write my daily mail on the iPhone on my way to the meeting:

Was about to send the mail, but wanted to attach a colleague in CC.Tabbed out of Mail, and accidentally tabbed her email address.Mail opens a new message and discards the old draft without asking or saving! WTF!?
