Throughout last week, human rights activist Craig Murray has written four daily reports. They are super clear and to the points. Much recommended for those who want to catch up with the current situation, what's at stake and how the whole case is being (horribly) dealt with.

So I was trying to figure out how I could evaluate some #python from #acme without having to rely on 'Send' or other things like that. I wanted something a bit nicer. I ended up looking into #jupyter. After a bit tweaking, now I can select some python from any window and with >jupy9 this gets executed on an #ipython kernel, with the results nicely printed to another acme window. Because it's a kernel behind the scene, it also means I can have other windows running ipython consoles to interact with whatever I send to the kernel. It's pretty fun :)
Now I need to crawl back outside of this rabbit hole to remember what I was trying to do in the first place...
