Ahem. Who here likes Verreciel? 🚀🎛🎶 I'm gonna talk for a while about Verreciel.

No, this isn't a surprise announcement. I'm doing work on Verreciel, and would like to talk about it, that's all. And this might be an interesting read, who knows?

Found a 1955 Kodak View Master 4x5 camera today. Anyone know anything about or have any large format lenses that they’d like to sell?

Watched _Burning_ on the flight home, fantastic movie. Based on a Haruki Murakami short story. Felt like a modern take on _The Great Gatsby_

@neauoire is there any kinda of active chat instance for Merveilles? I've been using Rocketchat lately with a friend group and I am in love with it.

I've been primarily a Python developer for my entire (albiet short) career. I'm interested in learning a more perforamnt, strongly typed language.

Things I need to do:
1. Build performant web APIs, ideally that can handle thousands of requests per second
2. Build ETL data processing steps
3. Interact with Rest APIs and databases (postgres mostly)

Things I'd like to be able to do:
1. Build desktop applications
2. Build CLI applications
3. Build games?

Any tips?

My dream is to create a massively multiplayer unleashed sandbox game with permadeath where players work together to build strongholds with player run shops and policing systems

Though I guess the image resizing doesn’t move with it, so maybe a bit of lock-in, but that’s a risk I’m willing to take.

Switched to using Netlify’s git LFS integration for my photos site, image transformation on the fly is pretty sweet. Not having to generate high and low res image files is even better.

Really not a fan of the looks I get when I get my Adderall prescription filled, I guess it because I live in a college town.

Saw The Lighthouse today

An old folk tale of a film, focused on madness, lust, pain, isolation

Ideal for me at this moment in my life

"The programmer, like the poet, works only slightly removed from pure thought-stuff. He builds his castles in the air, from air, creating by exertion of the imagination. Few media of creation are so flexible, so easy to polish and rework, so readily capable of realizing grand conceptual structures."

— Fred Brooks, The Mythical Man-Month

I'm curious. What is this community's opinion on luxury brands like Rolex, Hermes, LV, etc?

Are they something that you would ever buy if you had the money?

Are there any other brands/makers that you think are worth the high price?

What are some everyday items that are worth spending a little more on?
