Mastalab crashed and gave me the option of emailing a report. Even though it was a trivial problem I sent the email.

I just got a reply, half an hour later, saying it's fixed. 💛

My delight and surprise made me realize Google/birdsite/whatever had trained me out of reporting problems, by never responding or fixing anything.

The fediverse is different. You're much closer to humans who care about these things and are able to actually do stuff. It's worth reporting users, bugs, crashes.

"Police are continuing to search for a paragliding #Greenpeace protester who broke through the no-fly zone surrounding Donald Trump’s Turnberry golf resort on Friday evening, to fly past the US president as he entered the #Scottish hotel."

"Despite efforts to keep protesters away from the presidential party, the paraglider flew past police snipers and in front of the hotel, apparently in view of the president, trailing a banner reading '#Trump: well below par #resist'."

Anne Jungs Vortrag über das Verhältnis zwischen deutscher Wirtschaftspolitik und Fluchtursachen ergibt: der sogenannte Marshallplan ist ein leeres Versprechen. Europa investiert keinen Cent und verpflichtet die Länder, auf Zölle zu verzichten und Land und Rohstoffe an private Investoren zu verkaufen, die vor Ort furchtbare Arbeitsbedingungen schaffen. Ziel ist das reibunglose Eingliedern afrikanischer Länder in den Weltmarkt, halt auf Kosten der Bevölkerung. Fluchtursachen bleiben bestehen.

Okay, #python people. I've been reading about #virtualenv and I totally get it in the context of development. What I don't get is distribution. If I finish building a command line app in python and want to share it, would everyone that wants to use it have to set up a virtualenv on their end to do so? And what about in context of a cron job? Is it normal to script a wrapper that launches it in virtualenv context?
