    Very nice. The shade created by the sun and the day/night cycles are great! :)

      I just noticed the sun moves right to left, meaning it must be in the southern hemisphere, facing North.

      1. 3

        I don’t think the hemisphere matters.

        1. 2

          What do you mean exactly? If you’re in the northern hemisphere, you will never see the sun rise, move towards the left, then set. Admittedly, the curve described by this sun in this is not realistic for any location, as it goes far too high in the sky for a situation in which the positions where it rises and sets are so close together.

            I mean that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, regardless of the hemisphere. So, right to left when facing north. But I’m probably misunderstanding your comment, sorry. It’s not very important :)

            1. 3

              So, right to left when facing north.

              Yes, it goes right to left when facing north, irrespective of the hemisphere. However, if you are in the northern hemisphere, facing north, the sun goes from right to left behind you, so you can’t see it. When you turn around to be able to see the sun, Left and Right move with you, such that Left is now East and Right is West. The only way to orient yourself such that the sun appear to move from right to left in the northern hemisphere is to turn yourself upside down (or at a minimum, lie on your back). In the virtual aquatic ecosystem, 1. we are not upside down (things fall towards the bottom of the view), and 2. we can see the sun in front of us throughout the day.

                I understand now :). Right, and great explanations, thanks!

                1. 1

                  If you are in the north, but not very north, you can still look north and see the sun moves right-to-left, right?

        I have one for machine learning. I don’t know if it was worth the cost. It’s pleasant to use though. What do you want to know specifically?

          I’m using a Synology rt2600ac. It should be in your price range. It also offers VPN server and other goodies you may not care about, and can be easily extended with a mesh of MR2200ac.

          1. 2

            Thanks for the suggestion! As others I have been on the lookout for a new router to replace my current one. Since I’m using a 3G/4G dongle for the internet connection, support for such dongles needs to be available. And the RT2600AC ticks that box and many more - just ordered it!

            1. 2

              Happy that this was useful. Tip for the initial config: connect to it with a browser, not the Android application. Once the router is configured, the app works fine, but not for initial config.

            A practical work around may be to set up an http to https proxy on your local network. Maybe mitmproxy could do the job? I never tried setting that up, I may be wrong

            1. 1

              You are correct, I was personally going to make a comment about socat or literally a reverse proxy of any sort.

              1. 1

                I think this won’t work for Google Play because Android heavily uses certificate pinning.

                edit - I may give it a try though

                Ah, you are the creator of returns. This explains. Good job introducing FP concepts to the Python crowd, thanks. It may be worth mentioning somewhere in the beginning that this is applicable to the development of any kind of software, not only Django apps.
