Anyone else had Gaddafi's daughter asking for investment advice? Bit of a weird spam technique

Seems someone has been collecting emails from git again

So my venv is broken because I've got a space in the path, which breaks shabang because of some quirk in exec(2) that someone at Berkly thought was a good idea (or overlooked) back in pre-history

To think for years essentially every day involved “what has POTUS done now”

I have unlimited respect for people who have the courage and energy to keep leading change, who work on things that are not mainstream.

Be it monitoring political figures, making sure a government respects the law, fighting for social rights, protecting employees from an employer, providing software or services that frees others... you are heroes and what you do matters.

Thank you for caring about others.
