      Don't forget to format your code using the triple backticks or tildes:

      Here is my schema:

    7. Does anybody have any experience with switching to pipewire?

      I'm considering making the switch to pipewire, as my current setup involving a bridge between JACK and PulseAudio is growing frustrating. Even on a fresh boot, Spotify won't play until Pulse has been killed and restarted, and the same goes for games through Steam. All the while, Firefox audio works perfectly without doing so, and I can jump straight into recording with reaper without any issues from the get-go.

      I've been reading through the Arch wiki to get a feel for what the process should be like, and it seems like it'll be relatively straightforward, but given that I do a lot of music recording on my computer, I don't want to experience a total breakage of my sound setup. I'm planning to make a full backup of my system before making any changes, so I can roll it back if need be, but if anybody has any experience with switching to pipewire on a production system, I'd be grateful to hear about any pitfalls or problems that you ran into which I should be aware of in advance!

      Hello, I've had two ideas for games I find pretty compelling, and both would require different custom scripting languages. Unfortunately, I don't have any formal CS education or experience with parsing or scripting languages. So, I'm feeling a bit lost and thinking it'd be a herculean effort, is that correct?

      Has anyone here written their own language or DSL and have any insights, resources, or starting points to share?

      How the heck do these work? I've cobbled together the script below for my bot (using Limnoria) to return the F1 standings in a line. Right now it returns the first value perfectly, but I can't figure out the loop to get the other drivers at all.

      The script
      import supybot.utils as utils
      from supybot.commands import *
      import supybot.plugins as plugins
      import supybot.ircutils as ircutils
      import supybot.callbacks as callbacks
      import supybot.ircmsgs as ircmsgs
      import requests
      import os
      import collections
      import json
      
      try:
          from supybot.i18n import PluginInternationalization
      
          _ = PluginInternationalization("F1")
      except ImportError:
          _ = lambda x: x
      
      
      class F1(callbacks.Plugin):
          """Uses API to retrieve information"""
      
          threaded = True
      
          def f1(self, irc, msg, args):
              """
              F1 Standings
              """
      
              channel = msg.args[0]
              data = requests.get("https://ergast.com/api/f1/2022/driverStandings.json")
              data = json.loads(data.content)["MRData"]["StandingsTable"]["StandingsLists"][0]["DriverStandings"][0]
      
              name = data["Driver"]["code"]
              position = data["positionText"].zfill(2)
              points = data["points"]
      
              output = ", ".join(['\x0306\x02' + name + '\x0303' + " [" + position + ", "+ points + "]"])
              irc.reply(output)
      
          result = wrap(f1)
      
      Class = F1
      

      The output should be

      VER [1, 125], LEC [2, 116], PER [3, 110], RUS [4, 84], SAI [5, 83], HAM [6, 50], NOR [7, 48], BOT [8, 40], OCO [9, 30], MAG [10, 15], RIC [11, 11], TSU [12, 11], ALO [13, 10], GAS [14, 6], VET [15, 5], ALB [16, 3], STR [17, 2], ZHO [18, 1], MSC [19, 0], HUL [20, 0], LAT [21, 0]
      

      ...but it only returns VER [1, 125]

      I'm in that state where I can read the stuff, but when I put it together, it doesn't always work.

      Final script
      # this accepts @champ or @constructor with an optional year
      # and also @gp with an optional race number for the current season
