i especially like the first bit walking in the stream of excited people going to the fireworks.

It’s crazy though the difference technology has made. The Enigma code was built by humans to be resistant to humans. Not computers. Enigma didn’t stand a chance. Modern codes are built by computers to be resistant to humans and computers. Which is also crazy.

Enigma didn’t stand a chance.

Not in long term for other attacks, but the way it went depended a lot on the Known Plain Text approach.

Django-RQ is easy mode if you have a redis server running. Celery is too much for most use-cases.

It's like the Tower of Babel. Imagine an atrocity like that at the birthplace of Buddha or Jesus. Their "House of God", i.e. the Ka'aba, looks tiny compared right next to that gigantic shopping mall.

Money and status is more important then piety.

It is a shitty way to clean the air but a good way for someone to make a bunch of money selling these rigs.

My girlfriend told me a similar story the other day about her friend. He complained that his recent date didn’t take him seriously while he told her about all of this even though he went into great detail and went slowly for her benefit. Turns out he’s not going to see her again because of it.

Mould, Worms and Weevils.

I think that part is overlooked in our society. I want to remain close to my parents mostly because I love them, but also because it’s good for everybody’s health. If people have nothing to do and nobody to talk to after retirement then they just die.

I saw a really sad documentary about elderly in South Korea, where elders traditionally depend on their children but in modern times children move away to work elsewhere and their parents are left really poor and destitute but don't complain or seek help because of cultural norms.

RDS manages the database server, but not really the engine. The database engine will still need to be properly configured both initially and over time as the server and engine get upgraded. Otherwise you will be opening yourself up to performance degradation. Of course lots of people won't notice this, but there is also plenty that will.

What? RDS manages the engine and instance as well, does the initial settings and upgrades, sets replications etc.

Easy on the levels, went a bit overboard on the brown and blue.

It is an old History Channel docu but very detailed bits on the early history of firearms.

The shrieking and flips in this fight must be insane.

The division of labour between robots and people is interesting, note the robots all have their own specialized cubicles with robot trolleys carting objects around.

Normal. Doen.
