Yes, it's about time for me to have a blog, too, I guess. I call this one a shoutblog, it's an XMPP bot I can easily talk (and hence post) to.


A periodically running Python service (frequency: every 5 minutes!) should be migrated to Jenkins (via ShiningPanda Plugin ), to ease supervision and log observation/rotation. Its source code is located in a Git repository and is being updated from time to time (very infrequently).


The Jenkins job will run every 5 minutes - and will also check for SCM changes before it runs, resulting in unnecessary load on the SCM service and (very short) delay during each job run. I checked quite a number of Jenkins plugins, but there doesn't seem to be a single one which allows to conditionally disable SCM checks, which would do the trick:

Check and update SCMpip -r requirements.txtyesIs job run manually?Run Python script


I probably could have written my own plugin, but I chose to plumb together stuff that already existed. It turns out that Conditional BuildStep Plugin is all I needed. Splitting the problem into two separate, but dependent, Jobs src and run, this is how it works:

VAR will only work with factual decisions, not subjective ones. Blatant red card but when based on a ref's opinion, VAR pointless.

I do agree. See Video assistant referee system 'a shambles' and VAR confusion for details.


From mod_swift :

We chose the traditional Swift approach: Make something barely usable, though demoable, and release it with a 3.0 version tag. Then hope that the community kicks in and fills open spots.

emoji people:tongue

Helge really hits a nail (me), it's the reason why I dislike Swift so much. However, mod_swift isn't nonsense.

I had to create and transfer a large tar archive across the net, which took some time and made me revisit the status quo of open source compressors afterwards. I could provide some stats, but TL;DR : pixz really shines and there's absolutely no reason not to use it. I also tested Zstandard because cutting edge and everything, but found pixz to perform much better for my workload.

you won't get any ice. If you push the "no ice" button, you'll get
ice, but no cup.
