After some work on a recent project, I started tripping over PEP8 (which is the Python style guide of reference, used by most everyone and their tools), specifically the requirement to use no more than 79 characters in a single line. A read of these requirements sounds mostly sane. The idea being twofold, that: Extremely long lines mean that you’re probably trying to cram too much functionality into a line, and should refactor your code It’s easier for people to read lots of content vertically than it is to read horizontally So far, so good.
Well, that was unexpected. The very last post here has garnered me a “DMCA takedown notice: from an unspecified “Tonymacx86 legal”. Why all the scare quotes, you ask? Because the message I received isn’t worth the bytes used to compose it. I’d assume receiving such a notice would be rather intimidating. But… well, let’s just have a look shall we?

So I’ve spent this past weekend in a kind of interesting situation. I own two macs, you see. One at home (which is very much dead, after a rollover accident which saw it chucked out the window, and Apple wanted north of $1K to fix), and one at work. Both of these devices run Mountain Lion. Well, since the dead mac is basically useless to me, I want to take its copy of Mountain Lion and install it on my PC.
