Tarantula rehousing

In the afternoon I rehoused my smallest tarantula, a Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens, from the plastic container it came in when I bought it to a much higher plastic container; 0.65 litre or 0.17 gallon. This species likes to web a lot and with a few twigs, which easily fit in the higher container, I could provide more anchor points.

In the above photo you can see the spider resting on top of some of its old webbing (left) which I transferred when I rehoused the tarantula. You can also see the 1mm holes I drilled for cross-ventilation. I also drilled four 1mm holes in the lid. The substrate to the right is kept slightly moist as this species prefers a dry climate. I used all substrate that came in the original container, which in this new container adds up to a depth of nearly 4cm or 1.57 inches.

How to SSH Properly

SH is a powerful tool which often grants a lot of access to anyone using it to log into a server.

What the heck is pyproject.toml?

And so I decided to write this blog post to try and explain to setuptools users why pyproject.toml exists and what it does as it's the future of packaging in the Python ecosystem (if you are not a conda user šŸ˜‰).
