Yes, backups are important Victoria, so like a good little Mikey I tried to back up this blog in XML format, only to find out that somehow lists don't have .extend methods in the version of Python we're running the Zope site on? Weird. I thought we were on 2.3.3.
Completely new bug just popped up where the database hangs trying to do a simple SELECT * FROM log_modem_track; Blah. It's stopping me from actually debugging the missing group statistics (not to mention frustrating me).
Yesterday I didn't so much as code a single line. Got up, watched cartoons, went back to bed, got up, watched a Tivo'd movie, went back to bed, got up, read email, and went back to bed. Still wound up a little tired, but at least the bags under my eyes are mostly gone. Hands ...
Took grams to Mother's day brunch this afternoon, then dropped in for a game of snooker to find the kids there. For months now they've been going down and playing on the table unsupervised (and messing things up rather horribly). I spent a half hour or so giving them some basic ground rules (don't hit ...

Had a pleasant dinner conversation with Dan, XXX and two more of XXX's friends. Went to the Friendly Thai on Eglinton, which is a very nice little place to get good Thai food. However, through some weird vibe @ the start of the meal we wound up not ordering a group meal (which is the ...
For the record, I wound up having to use a mechanism that works like so:
Which eliminates the rather annoying overflow in the left margin (visually it goes "under" ...!-->!-->
Vex.net provides Zope accounts on request to any of our users, so you can readily create a Zope-based blog like this one with just a few clicks of a mouse. The object to select from the Zope management interface is "CoreBlog". After adding one to your Zope folder, you're off to the races. You can ...
So, I'm almost there with the main-page UI rework. Unfortunately, IE is back to dropping the whole of the main view down below the left-side "info boxes", so totally destroys the effect. At the moment I'm using the original "tabular view" layout for the tree, with just the addition of some custom code to render ...
