As you will recall, I have been reading Padovan's "Proportion". Having had a few days to digest the material now I figure it's a good time to write up the arguments as I see them for (and against) using proportional systems in design.
From a perceptual standpoint (the standpoint of our thesis), the ...
Shane (darned poker addict) managed to start up a game during what was supposed to be an evening of coffee and chatting about lives, universes and whatnot. It was okay I suppose, but when you've got that many people playing (well, actually, always) it gets dull. And I won, for the people who were ...
It's weird, but I'm seriously considering skipping PyCon this year. Why? Well, because I need to focus my energies on academic and research interests. It's weird because a month ago I was thinking about proposing multiple talks, tutorials and the like and just assuming I would go.

I've been waiting a long time for mxTextTools 2.1, and I guess I have to accept that it's not going to move forward and take it under my own (rather over-crowded) wing if SimpleParse is going to move forward.
I'd really rather not, but a patch-set for a multiple-years-old "experimental" release ...!-->!-->
Well, today was (almost) the end of the first work-week under the new schedule. I spent the bulk of the day on cleanup and fixes, this is mostly because I'm expecting the next big task to take a few weeks, and I don't want to be backtracking to fix things in the meantime ...
