This has to be the most unique podcast that I have heard on here. I appreciate the length of the episode (long ones are good too), though I really don’t know what to say about Matt’s songs. There’s definite talent there, but … well… hmm…. Loving the variety though and the whole comedy of this episode. This must be one of my favourites.

Happy to hear you enjoyed it! We want to do more hangout style shows like this…

As for Mat’s songs, “Rust Away” was literally made up on the spot, so give him some grace there. He actually wanted to remove it (or record a better version for us to splice), but we wouldn’t let him.

“Keyboard Wizard” he wrote awhile back, but still sung off-the-cuff. Here’s a video of Mat performing it that sounds better than the one on the show.

Hi Jerod. Thanks for your reply! Ha, don’t worry, I actually thought that Rust Away was very good for a first attempt, I just like to tease. As for ‘Keyboard Wizard’, thanks for that link. I’ve even subscribed to Mat’s channel for more goodness. :) As for the episode format, it was good, I liked it. I hope that the additional length though doesn’t make the participants less forthcoming though (due to the extra work required). I guess if the length is naturally selected by the participants, it shouldn’t be too much of a strain for you all.

Also, reviewpad has competition?

I agree with your hesitation to do pip install so I just use a virtual env and symlink from somewhere on my $PATH

Sounds like a good move. Do you have a write-up on the process?

2023-02-22T15:29:40Z ago

Not as such, but the process is basically this, if I want to install a pip project called Whammo:

$ mkdir ~/Projects/Whammo
$ cd ~/Projects/Whammo
$ python3 -m venv .venv 
$ source ./.venv/bin/activate
$ pip install Whammo
$ ~/bin # or somewhere on your $PATH
$ ln -s  ~/Projects/Whammo/.venv/bin/Whammo . 

Very occasionally might need to skip that last step and instead put the following in $HOME/bin (as Whammo (chmod + x Whammo)

#!/bin/bash
cd ~/Projects/Whammo
source ./.venv/bin/activate
Whammo

I’m a new listener and this is the first episode I chose. I really enjoyed it; you covered interesting git tooling, but mostly it was fun. Lots of laughs; the 3 of you played off each other really well. Mat was a great guest.
