TIL I learn

Recently I stumbled upon Simon Willison's of Django and Datasette fame TIL project.

It is a public scratchpad of sorts and I like the idea. That guy scratches a lot though.

I bookmark all kinds of stuff without really getting back to it and take notes on many places. Some notes though and especially those for programming reference I want to go back to and even have some examples attached.

Those notes I want to make into little posts tagged #til.

On my site along with the vast amount of prose you will find those snippets. To get you started, here is the latest additions:

Simple django search
For the last couple of years, whatever decomposing has happend on Mechbase has happened through Turbo. 

Ok, I needed two search results

Python instance check
Ones and Zeros get messy on dynamically typed languages. Crash that if statement.
Beware, when you reach this problem, your actual problem is elsewhere.

That's it for today. If you have any notes of your own let me know so I can steal them.


Until next time.
