I'm amused that there are more people playing a game based on the Old West (Red Dead Redemption, 27 million) than actually lived in it ( est 16.5 million)

If you enjoy my posts about #wrenching on my old truck engine rebuild project, please consider boosting this message. I'd love to find more people on the fediverse who are mechanically inclined and can share advice. Due to the decentralized nature, it's not as easy to find niche interests.

To anyone who doesn't know, I'm slowly rebuilding my 1965 GMC 1000 pickup. Right now I have the engine pulled. It's been machined, and I'm reassembling. I have a long road ahead.

It's also possible you may be running python3 on a python2 script, or vice versa...

That could do it.

@gudenau
Got an example? Maybe you're not used to reading Pythonish stack traces... yes I am willing to help a bit.

We're talking python, not perl, right?

How does Python not "work right"?

I'm puzzled by this, because (among other things) we use it for machine learning a lot and it seems to be slower than C but not by much, and considerably easier to code in.

@paola

I find I need to reinvent myself every five to ten years anyway.

keeps me on top of things.

And ... for the record... I am 62 .

@gudenau

Simple solution is to use Lisp or Python . Both have arbitrary precision integer arithmetic built in.
