— Here is a very nice jacket, but unfortunately it misses one sleeve, so to wear it, you have to cut off your hand.
— But I don't want to cut off my hand! It's painful and messy, fix the jacket.
— After much research and work we have built this machine that will remove your hand neatly and painlessly.
That's how I feel when I complain that there is no simple way of making a single-file binary executable of a #python program, and the developers announce improvements to packaging and pip.
@shadower You got me, I just searched Wikipedia ;-)
I like "StarForge" and "StarSmith", but I noticed there is no "StarTinker".

The Play Station itself it a mixed bag. It boots up fast and there are no hardware or driver compatibility issues. Presumably no OS falling on its arse either.
BUT: multiplayer support in games is a (paid) PlayStation Plus subscription. And I still had to wait 2 hours to download an update.
I did not know this up front frankly, the idea of Sony upselling a gameplay feature like that never even crossed my mind.
Not it did and crossed I remain.
For games where I've got a choice, I'll stick with PC.
Lukewarm take: Into The Breach is really very good indeed!
I'm not into tactical games that much, but this one is forgiving enough (especially on easy), lets you experiment (you can try out different ideas before you commit) and it's fun.
Lot's of cool squad types with very different approaches.
Plus just like in FTL the music is gorgeous.
So the old Einstein's line "God does not play dice" apparently actually reads as follows:
"Quantum mechanics is certainly imposing. But an inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing. The theory says a lot, but does not really bring us any closer to the secret of the 'old one'. I, at any rate, am convinced that He is not playing at dice."
Clearly, this is a Lovecraftian remark.
Einstein was talking about Cthulhu.
