Oof. My family's watching The Founder. It's so tough watching the main character descend into being a jerk. Especially when he pursues other women and demands a divorce from his wife who's really supportive of him. :(
It makes me feel so thankful though for my girlfriend, who's wonderful ... harsh at times, but supportive and wonderful.
After skimming through the #Django books, I feel that I don't need to read a bunch more of them for now. Rather, I need to nail down the database model for the site I want to build, then piece it together from the various, relevant chapters.
The books have lots of info about setting up and dealing with user registration, permissions, email, and search, but most of that can come later (after the main site is setup and opened to additional users).
It's amazing to me how visually amazing this looks, but also how boring its gameplay seems: https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/mortal-shell/home
Meanwhile this looks great and seems fun: https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/star-wars-squadrons/home

@feld Do you have any pointers for how I should go about browsing through the backup you sent me? It seems like different types of data is mixed in, and I don't see how my own posts are distinguished from reposts.
@bthall If you hadn’t suddenly increased your cigarette smoking from 0 to 32,000,000,000 per day, NorCal wouldn’t have so much smoke.
Covid-19; Student privacy violations

I'm having more fun with the #Django book.
I'm reading it so that I can make a site that lets me (and others) record their #skateboarding #data in a structured way. With a small amount of additional work, it would also let people easily access and distribute the data for further analysis.
It'd be cool to also offer some sort of analytics within the site, but that's less important than dealing with the #schlep of data collection.
I've been recording the data manually (pen and paper, then input to spreadsheet, then clean it in R), and a website would cut out two or three steps, which eliminates big delays from recording to analysis. #hobby
