@smithara:matrix.orgAshley SmithI just learnt about magic numbers, but I guess they are not magic enough!15:27:54
@jtniehof:matrix.orgjtniehofThe wikipedia entry is fascinating, although there are examples that get icky.15:29:47
@jtniehof:matrix.orgjtniehofI went down that rabbit hole awhile ago explaining a SpacePy commit where I used 0xdeadbeef15:30:04
@cadair:cadair.comCadairFor the particular use, I want to be able to fail as early as possible15:31:16
@cadair:cadair.comCadairand also it's possible the user might try and read a file without the hdf5 lib installed15:31:47
@cadair:cadair.comCadairso want to be able to know to tell them they need it15:31:58
@jtniehof:matrix.orgjtniehofIt does look like you can have a perfectly valid netcdf4 that then has one structure with one little noncompliant thing nestled all the way down in it which blows the whole thing up15:43:31
@jtniehof:matrix.orgjtniehoflike some jerk sticking the Unicode character on line 8000 of 7-bit FORTRAN source. Hypothetically.15:43:50
@cadair:cadair.comCadairlol15:44:00
@cadair:cadair.comCadair cough FITS with unicode 15:44:10
@jtniehof:matrix.orgjtniehof shudder 15:44:18
@jtniehof:matrix.orgjtniehofkids, don't copy/paste equations from a paper into a comment15:44:35
@cadair:cadair.comCadairI saw a solar mission put Å in a FITS comment once15:44:38
@cadair:cadair.comCadairit made me SO MAD15:44:42

kids, don't copy/paste equations from a paper into a comment
or in python 3 go for it
15:44:55
@cadair:cadair.comCadairbecause you can15:45:01
@jtniehof:matrix.orgjtniehofyes, the Right Answer these days is to accept that there are languages other than American English in the world and stop treating Unicode as weird15:45:56
@jtniehof:matrix.orgjtniehofand use an environment that manages that15:46:14

@jtniehof:matrix.orgjtniehofNot that Unicode is perfect, or even has its priorities straight: https://modelviewculture.com/pieces/i-can-text-you-a-pile-of-poo-but-i-cant-write-my-name15:46:59
@jtniehof:matrix.orgjtniehof(politically Unicode never would have replaced SHIFT-JIS without emoji support, but, ugh)15:47:40

@namurphy:matrix.orgNick Murphy As mentioned in the telecon today...the next planned PyHC telecon will be on January 11 at 11 am EST. It'll be a discussion with Ian Cosden and/or others from the US Research Software Engineer Association. Ian will probably start with a short presentation that can lead into a broader discussion about the nascent profession of research software engineering. 16:49:53
@juliebarnum:matrix.orgJulie Barnum (LASP-CU) Thanks for reaching out to the US-RSE people and getting that telecon organized, Nick Murphy ! 16:54:38
@namurphy:matrix.orgNick Murphy Oh! There was one more thing I heard about through US-RSE: INTERSECT which has the goal of research software engineering training. I'm hoping to become involved in that a bit. 17:06:00
