Gruntled vs disgruntled

Gruntled vs disgruntled

My wife and I were talking this morning and the phrase”less disingenuous” came up. I thought about how sometimes a positive word fades into obscurity while the negative form lives on. The first example that came to mind is gruntled vs disgruntled. Yes, the former is an English word, but a rare one. Here’s a comparison of the frequency of gruntled vs disgruntled from 1860 to 2000. In 2000, disgruntled was about 200x more common than gruntled in the books in Google’s English corpus. But if you look further back, gruntled was used a little more often. But it turns out that the people who were gruntled in the 19th century were chiefly British. If we look at just the American English corpus, no one was gruntled. There’s a rise in the frequency of disgruntled as you look backward from 1815...

Change Tick Frequency in Matplotlib

Introduction Matplotlib is one of the most widely used data visualization libraries in Python. Much of Matplotlib's popularity comes from its customization options - you can tweak just about any element from its hierarchy of objects. In this tutorial, we'll take a look at how to change the tick frequency in Matplotlib. We'll do this on the figure-level as well as the axis-level. How to Change Tick Frequency in Matplotlib? Let's start off with a simple plot. We'll plot two lines, with random values: import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import numpy as np fig = plt.subplots(figsize=(12, 6)) x = np.random.randint(low=0, high=50, size=100) y = np.random.randint(low=0, high=50, size=100) plt.plot(x, color='blue') plt.plot(y, color='black') plt.show() x and y range from 0-50, and the leng...

Comparing Static Site Generator Build Times

There are so many static site generators (SSGs). It’s overwhelming trying to decide where to start. While an abundance of helpful articles may help wade through the (popular) options, they don’t magically make the decision easy. I’ve been on a quest to help make that decision easier. A colleague of mine built a static site generator evaluation cheatsheet. It provides a really nice snapshot across numerous popular SSG choices. What’s missing is how they actually perform in action. One feature every static site generator has in common is that it takes input data, runs it through a templating engine, and outputs HTML files. We typically refer to this process as The Build. There’s too much nuance, context, and variability needed to compare how various SSGs perform during the build process to...

Tot Pocket is a Purposefully Limited Notes App

Gosh do I love a good text editor, and Tot Pocket has me smitten. It is such an elegant solution that just nails the experience. This is what a beautiful native iOS app should look like, and it has a companion app for Mac as well. It is a limited app, but not by accident — by design.Before talking about Tot Pocket’s limitations, let us take a step back real quick. If you’re anything like me, your note-taking app of choice is chock full of real notes, intermixed with one-off notes for a link, a quick list, or something you need to remember. I can’t count how many times I’ve had to pause my daily workload because I got caught up deleting all of the nonsense notes from the native Notes app I had jotted down and forgot. That is no place for those ramblings. Enter — Tot, and ...

How Hacker News Crushed David Walsh Blog

DavidWalsh.name Technology David’s site uses WordPress. It serves most content from a MySQL database, which is a well-known performance limitation.
