Re: UK and the EU: In or out?

France had some elite before the revolution too. Thanks for helping me prove my point so nicely! Regardless of the system, there's always been someone powerful who believed in the idea of France. Thus, France persists. It took Napoleon to destroy the Holy Roman Empire. There is no (currently) no Na...

Re: Python tricks

Here is a snippet of code for ADE method that I ported from C++ to Python. Semantic integrity has been preserved and the results are correct. It can be made loopless maybe but 1) have to think hard 2) is it worth it? while current <= pde.T:         # Dirichlet boundary conditions     VNew[0] = U[0] ...

Re: Python tricks

There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.

Wrong. Even if there be one unique solution, tell us how how to find it!

There are several solutions, one of which is optimal in a Pareto sense in the eyes of various stakeholders. Remove the blinkers.

Re: Python tricks

The Zen of Python provides aphorisms to be a good Python burger and citizen of the world:: https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0020/ Some rants: 1. C++ would never tell you this: C++ are adults 2. The list is context-sensitive; does one size fit all? 3. The most important one is missing: maintainabi...

JC Juncker was the son of a steel worker. You would never see one of Arthur Scargill's sons becoming PM, unless of course he went to Eton.

If they don't like it, then move and stop whingin' Paul, metal has moved on since Iron Maiden. And the last hope was Marc Bolan.  You are obsessed with the EU.. Where did it all go wrong for you?

Re: Boris Johnson - the last 100 days

It's what you make of it yourself. First world problem. Feels like 'amuse me jester' like guests at a Dutch birthday party waiting for something to happen.

I'm thinking of trying Le Bouquet Garni next week. From Tripadvisor it's not too expensive, but the waiters are somewhat stilted.
