Although it was tempting to try to rewrite the whole VOIP billing front-end in Django this evening as a test, I decided that getting OpenGL-ctypes moved forward would be a bigger net win for the world. So, sat down and wrapped the GLUT font pointers and the GLU tessellation structure/functions.
I've got to ...!-->!-->
Have just finished reading through the tutorial. Unfortunately, after finding the solution to the admin interface not showing up (you have to specify the "admin" settings file, despite the tutorial's assertion that the two settings files are the same), ran into a failure with a many-to-many relationship (can't delete). No big deal, still ...
As I covered in my talk this past PyCon, we're getting a proliferation of domain-modelling frameworks in Python. I'm actually responsible for 2 of them myself (OpenGLContext's fields and BasicProperty). There's also Traits, Zope's fields, and a similar system in PEAK.
When you consider PyTable (which creates BasicProperty properties from ...!-->!-->
You give eternally
So you are loved
Made an icon
To sell cola
Children cry your name
With lists of toys attached
They ignore your power
Darker stories from the past
Of powerful magics
Serving implacable justice
They would rather not know
The force behind their favourite myth
So they imagine you fat and jolly ...!-->!-->!-->!-->!-->!-->!-->!-->!-->!-->!-->!-->
Decided I needed to play with Django so that I can at least know what it is.
Thomas posted a patch yesterday that seems to take care of the callback deallocation problem I was having with OpenGL-ctypes. Unfortunately, it didn't move me very far forward. I'm now seeing a crash inside the GLUT mainloop, particularly during a call to glFlush().
Only thing I can think of at the moment that ...!-->!-->
What we need is not complex
Food, shelter, air and water
Life is simple and direct
Though red of tooth and claw
To feel out what we want however
Takes more than lifetime's span
Of deep thought, somber introspection
and that most perilous reflection
For those who do the most
To conquer this great ...!-->!-->!-->!-->!-->!-->!-->!-->!-->!-->!-->
Trees on a hill
Twenty feet apart
Can be patient
Knowing they will grow together
But what of you and I?
Can't sleep (too hot, too sweaty, too tired), so thought I'd work on a personal "business" card. That is, one to hand out to people interested in me, for whatever reason (academic, personal), not Vex, or VexTech, or Cinemon. I want the design as minimalistic as possible. Basically just my name, VRPlumber.com ...
Maybe I could have stretched
Though it's really not my thing
Worn braces and new shoes
Or so my thoughts run now
Imagining the baking clay
And I'll admit it
High-cut skirts and briefer tops
It doesn't seem so bad a day
Weaving back and forth
To have a little play
