Look, it's a search box (Turns out you just uncomment it...)


Frustrated with what look to be weakref crashes in the ping scanner, took a few moments to figure out how to get a ZCatalog-based search installed on the blog here. Built the ZCatalog, added the lexicon and a full-text index, then added in the blog itself... no content indexing occurs... there's no "Coreblog Entry ...

Think that's enough for today (Dispatcher-based code mostly working)


Next step is to hook up the simple SVG diagraming code to generate a real-time graph of current status so I can be sure what I'm seeing really is what it appears to be. I've got the core part of the operations "graph" (sort of a cross between a state diagram and a ...

Packed up the scanner (And immediately thought of three or four things I should have scanned before giving it up...)


Old design notes, a few dozen sketches, that kind of thing. Oh well, soon (maybe even tomorrow night!) I will have a digital camera and can have fun using that for scanning-like operations :) . I'm actually kind of thinking of doing a rogues gallery for the blog here, portraits of the various people being mentioned ...

Need an intellectual recharge (Maybe more philosophy this evening)


Feeling the need to recharge my enthusiasm for knowledge.

Listened to the next in the philosophy lecture series (I stopped for quite a while there), was good to think at a more abstract level for an hour or so. Was discussing the neo-Aristotelians at Oxford in the Quatrocento (a.k.a. The Rennaissance). Apparently "The ...

OO versus nested_scopes in Twisted code (OO wins (not to spoil the suspense or anything))


So, I've been figuratively staving in my skull with tracking down the weird hanging cases that have been showing up in the ping scanning mechanism. For the most part, I've been storing the state in either explicitly passed arguments, or using nested scopes.

Having reached a point where the whole darn thing was ...
