Natasha informs me that she's completed the novel, which apparently qualifies her as winner of a given competition. Congrats to her. Spent the evening having a few friends over for dinner (Shane, Lara and Golnar). Made molÃ©, which I think I can now say I have mastered (well, my own version of it anyway).
After a few attempts to get everything working with PySNMP v4a1, think I'm going to have to shelve that work and move back to PySNMP 3.x. Whatever fixes may have shown up, the amount of rewriting it's requiring is just too much to consider in the middle of trying to track down this memory leak. ...
PySNMP (which is where I'm trying to track down the memory leak at the moment) appears to have a new version in development (in CVS). Really should have been paying attention to what changed before I hit "update" in the CVS module. Looks like some pretty serious refactoring.
Also appears to have a MIB parser ...!-->!-->
Also would be nice to have PyOpenGL-as-ctypes as a presentation, but that requires getting enough time to actually finish (heck, start) the project.
Maybe should do something for BasicProperty, PyTable and wxOO, just a quicky "save yourself some work" thing. Maybe build a wxPython UI for Cinemon just to be perverse :) .
Just had a dream in a style that I haven't had much since leaving architecture, very film-noire, lots of montage and suggestive imagery, with really hard-to-interpret symbols crawling over various surfaces.
The dream was a standard "get your house in order" type thing, set in a cottage, where my mother, father and myself were moving ...!-->!-->
Pinning down memory leaks in large-ish systems with large numbers of libraries is a bit of a pain. I wind up using the silly Windows task manager (yes, I'm still using Windows, despite having fixed Linux (sort-of) a while ago). Sure, I don't do this very often, but would be nice to have tools when ...
Seems as though there's something leaking memory in TwistedSNMP (I've been tracking down Cinemon's leak). Doesn't appear to be particularly large, but with the number of queries Cinemon does, could be a contributor. Haven't yet figured out where the silly error is inside TwistedSNMP (more precisely, I've determined which test cases are leaking, I just ...
Natasha caught wind of Alan's wife's "serendipitous" words challenge. She's apparently up to 250 words... running the word-finder script, however, says that there's something like 1845 words in total (though that includes abbreviations and proper nouns)... hopefully it's not distracting her from writing the novel.
