The world can be seen as a very mechanical place. It seems that people look to create a more mechanical and understandable place that they can control and regulate. It is a dark dream and serves neither the person who controls it or the victim of it. It is a place and future devoid of imagination or joy.
I see the world of science in a different way, the equations, atoms, light, formulas, methods, languages, chemicals, atoms, particles, fields and so much more, dance for me in dreams and I am guessing that this is not so for most people as they become the product of technology employed like a grape squeezer to make a very bitter wine.
The "Dream Lane" is the carpool lane of life that must be occupied by two.
The issue of connectivity is everywhere and you see it in dead links on the internet, dependencies not met, and my ZIM wiki, as well as other groupings like kate.sessions that become tangled when the directory structure changes, things are deleted, or a new machine is instantiated. It would seem there would be a method that dealt with that tangle in a more sensible way. As far as my local issues, I have developed some tool sets that are entertaining. like:
d=gcd(shandled,handled) print " % 2.2f " % (handled/float(shandled)), for root, dirs, files in os.walk('.'): for root,_,_ in os.walk(lookLoc): for fname in glob.iglob(os.path.join(lookLoc,root,glob_expr)): yield fname pattern = re.compile('file:\/\/') drive, path = os.path.splitdrive(fileOnlyx) k= list(find_files(filename)) k2=difflib.get_close_matches(fileOnlyx,k,1)
Regex is interesting, but the difflib is really handy, like the text distance. It works really well for finding where something moved.
