When I worked in telecommunications as an engineer (late 2000’s) Electronic Switching Systems had been pretty much taken over by software switching systems, but the hardware, closely coupled to that software, was still very much an important component. While the call switching and routing was no longer achieved by thousands and thousands of hardware relays […]
This morning I was listening to some Divine Comedy while I was working. I realised I didn’t have the album in full, so I thought I’d buy it online in MP3 format.Purely due to muscle memory I always go to Amazon. I really should get better a buying music from other places. So I searched […]
During the approaching GNU Radio streaming weekend, we’ll be doing some UX Design work. The design challenge we’re going to tackle is the process for users to create a new GRC flowgraph. I’ve created this short survey to get a better understanding of how GRC users currently create a new flowgraph, and the run it.
User: I use the software. I’m not a developer. I’m not necessairly interested, or able to contribute to making it happen – I can’t write code. But I can tell you what I need, and give feedback when your making it. Most of the time I’m interested in knowing the big picture – when will […]

OS: Mac OS X Catalina 10.5.6Python version: 3.9 (most up-to-date at this time and installed like this) Package to install: guinness (Good things come to those who wait) This is a reminder to myself on how to do create a virtenv.
(This is a reminder to myself, and maybe a help for someone else who might be in the same situation as me. The purpose was to be able to lint documentation I’m trying to update for the pip project work.) This applies to installing “the latest” Python on Mac OS X 10.15.6. I’ve used this […]
I’m working on the usability of pip (the official Python package manager) at the moment. This short blogpost isn’t about how to design CLIs. It is about creating rapid prototypes with this tool – part “look at this useful tool, part “thank you Pradyun” part feature request list. 🙂 Update After putting together the feature […]
Sumana Harihareswara the pip PM put together a video for the Python community to tell them about our UX work on pip, the package manager. Initially I was thinking “I hate seeing my face on video, I hate hearing my voice. This better not have ukelele music. I hate those kinds of videos.” I liked […]
