Weeklog for Week 46: November 14 to November 20


The python podcast we recorded last week is now live. It's mainly Jochen telling us about all the good stuff in Python 3.11 and Dominik and me derailing him with business policies, project management and morality. And also a little bit about lists.

Work was slow. I'm not getting into the groove. Also, stuff didn't work as expected.


Libraries, programming, etc

  • I've used/looked at this before, but it's just so good and useful: Learn and Test your DMARC setup
  • I figured out how DMARC works, and it almost broke me -- Simon Andrews: Very useful guide for setting up SPF, DKIM and DMARC
  • minestrone 0.3.0 documentation: "minestrone is a opinionated Python library that lets you search, modify, and parse messy HTML with ease. minestrone utilizes Beautiful Soup to do all the real work but aims to provide a simple, consistent, and intuitive API to interact with an HTML document. Beautiful Soup provides a lot of functionality, although it can be hard to grok the documentation. The hope is that minestrone makes that functionality easier." (via Jochens weeklog)


  • Hot Wheels Unleashed: this game could be so goodIt is a bit of a pet peeve of mine that I'm very annoyed by things that could be better. Sorry not sorry., but instead it's a crude money-grab. The game has all the makings of a classic, like Trackmania: user community, large and wacky races, user-built tracks and liveries, points and trophies and lots of silly community stuff. But instead of using that and actually building a community, they just show you the same stupid paid-for DLCs over and over again. You can't race on community tracks. You can't even favourite community tracks, or actually you can but it doesn't do anything since those are not the ones you can actually ride on. You can't even search for your friends because you can't search at all. Instead, why don't you buy this car for 2,99? So sad, such a wasted opportunity.


  • Spaghetti Bolognese
  • Pizza
