1. Pro tip: get to know the locations of nearby fire hydrants, street crossings, traffic lights, chimneys and bicycles so that when the AIs take over you know how to appease them.

  2. A Camomile tip I learned the hard way: audio units built using camomile (and presumably VSTs and lv2s too) will stop working if you rename them, as they rely on the bundle filename, the .txt configuration file and the main .pd patch all sharing the same base name in order to function.

  3. django.test.TestCase and subclasses don’t warn you if the fixtures specified in their fixtures list don’t exist — double check naming if your tests mysteriously start failing or run suspiciously quickly

  4. Hurdy players: save the rosin you were applying to the foot of the chien for the chien string slot, but be aware that this trick won’t cure a badly shaped slot.

  5. Website Owner Tip: Provide *helpful* contact info. For example, if you provide a phone number, tell the user when's the best time to call. Perhaps even a bit of client side code that tells the user if **now** is a good time to call? With email addresses, how about telling them how long they're likely to wait for a reply? #web #tip #ux
