I used Elm in production and it cost me my job – Annaia Berry - YouTube
Time to bill the functionality not the time spent.

Once upon a time, a cargo ship was not starting. Everything seemed fine to mechanics, but the engine just wouldn't start.
After weeks of immobilization and dozen of hours of costly experts not finding the solution, the ship owners were directed by one of the experts to an old retired mechanic who supposedly worked magic in his days. The owners went for it, because at that point they would have hired a shaman if he had promised them to fix their ship.
The old guy came with his own toolbox. Within ten minutes he took out a little hammer and gently hit a specific point in the engine, which then consented to fire up.
The ship owners were delighted and asked the guy to send them the bill. On the morrow he came back with a single-line $10,000 bill. They told the old mechanic that it seemed disproportionate for the time he spent. The mechanics then rewrote the bill as such :
- poking with a hammer : $2
- knowing where to poke : $9,998

"The Mess We're In" by Joe Armstrong - YouTube
"...and now for the tricky bit."
I find that I do write really big comments - when I am thinking through the problem. Then they quickly become irrelevant, or even misleading, as you refine the approach, refactor, and generally do things differently. To keep the comments in alignment with the code doubles your effort.

Sean Penn The Novelist Must Be Stopped | HuffPost
“Behind decorative gabion walls, an elderly neighbor sits centurion on his porch watching Bob with surreptitious soupçon.” ― page 71
“While the privileged patronize this pickle as epithet to the epigenetic inequality of equals, Bob smells a cyber-assisted assault emboldened by right-brain Hollywood narcissists.” ― page 99

This is all, apparently, supposed to seem deeply witty and profound. Instead, it’s akin to the product of a postmodern literature bot. It doesn’t seem quite possible that a human person wrote this mess.

How to possibly fix a PC that will turn on but will not beep and will not display anything on screen - YouTube
Do what the video shows: Disconnect the power cable, remove the CMOS battery, short the CMOS jumper pins for 9 seconds then return the jumper cap to its initial position (only if you can find these jumper pins; if not, skip this step), press your PC's chassis power button switch (to discharge any remaining power circulating in the system), leave the PC unplugged and in this state overnight, then the next day return the CMOS battery to its socket, power up the PC, and if no beep, then disconnect the power cable, press your PC's chassis power button switch (to discharge any remaining power circulating in the system), remove one component, power up the PC, and if no beep then repeat (each time unplugging the PC, pressing the power switch to discharge remaining power, removing a remaining component, and then powering up, and this until the PC beeps at boot).If it never beeps, even when you are down to just motherboard, power supply & CPU+fan, one of these remaining components may be bad

PEP 440 -- Version Identification and Dependency Specification |
For a given release identifier V.N, the compatible release clause is approximately equivalent to the pair of comparison clauses:

>= V.N, == V.*

This operator MUST NOT be used with a single segment version number such as ~=1.

For example, the following groups of version clauses are equivalent:

~= 2.2
>= 2.2, == 2.*

~= 1.4.5
>= 1.4.5, == 1.4.*

python - How can I simulate input to stdin for pyunit? - Stack Overflow
As of Python 3.5 "If you are patching builtins in a module then you don’t need to pass create=True, it will be added by default."

<code class="language-python">
@patch.object(module_under_test, "raw_input", create=True)

raw_input.return_value = input_data = "123"
