Heartbeat – Wednesday, May 30th, 2018

Peerchemist (one of the Peercoin developers) made an interesting transaction today: https://twitter.com/peerchemist/status/1001747842451562497. It’s always exciting when something runs “in production” for the first time 🙂

News from The Washington Post:

  • “Roseanne” is cancelled after Roseanne makes a racist tweet.

Jogged around Kezar Stadium twice. Came back to discover a package from Pi Supply!

And here’s a piece of the painting from Croatia that keeps me company in “the back office”:

Signed up for all the insurances ($$$$!) 🙂

Finished making the automated test suite for pypeerassets pass. There’s some heavy global state in the btcpy library that forced me to “punt” on fixing some tests, marking them as “known to fail”. We’ll have to work on btcpy more.

hi internet

I haven’t been up to anything major; just chilling out around the net.

Buck sent out this link to an awesome talk on unicode and python. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ Definitely worth watching ┬──┬ ノ( ゜-゜ノ).

I’ve been reading PGP & GPG, which has been a great introduction to setting up and using Gnu Privacy Guard. Still working through it but you can get a copy over at cointagion.com pretty easily if you’re in the market for a fun tech read. I can haz public key!

In other news, foodler.com has been doing a solid job of turning bitcoins into food. all4btc.com will hopefully do a solid job of turning bitcoins into amazon orders…will have to see how it goes.

Oh, I’ve also been working on a small Clojure web app to show my recent daily pictures. Check it out!

have a great week! ☺
