Spent quite some time fiddling around with my phone and Computers because of the iOS 16.1 / macOS 13 releases. Notes stopped syncing with my Macs (which happens with every major release). Reminders synced shared lists across different users and phones (wow, that usually also breaks on new releases), but it stopped syncing with my watch, so I had to take out my phone and look at it during grocery shopping (like an animal). I also tried out the eagerly awaited shared iCloud photo library, and ran into a lot of edge cases/bugs (the image and video counts stopped being accurate for me a while ago, but now they are just going crazy: edited images are converted to tiff sometimes and then they cannot be uploaded to iCloud anymore and some images just refuse to be added to the shared library, etc pp). Maybe I have just too many notes, reminders, and photos.
Worked a little bit on django-cast to bring its dependencies up to date. There's a Wagtail RFC 71: support for responsive images that maybe makes my wagtail-srcset workaround obsolete. Would be cool if this is no longer needed. Planning to look into this in the next week.

Managed to attend the Python Herbst Sprint & Hackathon in Düsseldorf and work on a Django template with an integrated minimal deployment included. Shared some ideas with Jens about how to keep projects that were generated from a template up to date when the template changes - Jens started manageprojects to experiment with solutions for this problem.

- Put together a video on Python type variables, generics and variadic generics (a 3.11 thing). If you're type annotating your code, I'm sure you'll find any of these examples useful. https://youtube.com/watch?v=7Chd5gPHlDg… p.s. sorry it's a bit chaotic I just got off a flight.

But why is having seperated languages for different use cases a bad thing? Personally I think paying the price in extra complexity for having one language fit both is just not worth it.

- Never ceases to surprise me how many crypto guys don't know the definition of basic terms like inflation, money supply, QE/QT, etc. Bitcoin-denominated inflation has been ~250-260% year on year. E.g. cost of living 1 yr ago: $100/day ~ BTC 0.0016 Today: $110/day ~ BTC 0.0058
