I've just released version 0.3.12 of TwistedSNMP, I didn't call it 0.4 mostly because the PySNMP-v4 code isn't yet usable (the PySNMP-v4 engine is just too slow to be useful in our applications). The changes to the version that uses v3.5+ are those mentioned earlier this week that reduce the latency during integration of ...
I think I've pretty much got all of the currently-published projects in the portfolio now. There were quite a few nice pieces that just fell through the cracks, also a few projects I'd completely overlooked because they weren't in the previous version (such as the PIM environment). I really should have statistics and introductions on ...
On Saturday as is my plan
I trudge to the distant market
To feed my family here
Cold winds race each other
To find new holes in my
Coat of twelve long years
Sad cow faces stare past me
Never meeting my eyes
Or seeing my smile
I wait my turn in lines

This isn't really a theory item, but oh well :) . I decided (on looking through Michelle's portfolio this evening) that I really needed to get my own ship in order. First step was to get rid of the cheesy hard-coded pages and move to an actual application to generate pages for individual projects and ...
I've been working on extending the latency improvements from a few days ago throughout Cinemon. Some of the latency improvements are going into TwistedSNMP. I'm considering adding the parallel.py module to TwistedSNMP as well. The newest incarnation is very useful when you want to break up operations in a Twisted application which, though not "blocking" ...
Why not date her
A friend asks
She thinks that's sad
I should agree
A hug yesterday
From some pretty young thing
Made this old man smile
The laptop is still trundling away building packages. It's up to 162 of the 183 it has to build, I've seen most of KDE pass by, as well as Firefox and a few others. Unfortunately, some of the versions of the desktop apps (e.g. Firefox) are the "stable" (read old) versions, so I'll have to ...
I turned on Rose's laptop last night intending to copy the presentation over and upload it. While I was there, though, I googled for the laptop's model and Linux. Apparently the captive drivers work nicely for the wireless card, and everything else is either working or work-aroundable...
So I downloaded the new Gentoo 2006.0 LiveCD ...!-->!-->
PyGTA went well, not a huge crowd, but 16 or 17 I suppose. Took far longer than I'd hoped to get through the background material (some people had never heard of Asterisk before). I also forgot (stupidly) that the call-duration-callback demo only works locally. Oops.
I'll upload the final version of the slides next time ...!-->!-->
