Colleague (Mike Lin) has (re)launched his almost-rhyme-finding play site (that is, it finds almost rhymes, it's not trying to almost do rhyme finding). Don't know that I'll have enough time to get back to poetry soon (Planet Python sighs a sigh of relief), but fun to play with.
The little PyOpenGL folder in Thunderbird is mocking me with its unread message count, but there's so much to get done. Am I going to be working on PyOpenGL at PyCon? It's becoming a possibility, but darn it, I want to work *with* people on something this year. I want to code with ...
This is one of those things that I have to look up every time I go to do it after being away from SA for a while.
You have a table A, with a many-to-one table B referencing A. You want to get summary data from B joined with your table A. The query to ...
Say you want to have a TurboGears application running inside a Twisted web-server (which lets you mix in all sorts of other protocols). J.P. has written up a 60-second recipe for getting a WSGI application running inside Twisted. This post takes you the rest of the way to getting TurboGears 2.1 running inside ...
There's a bug that makes Firebug crash Firefox 3.5.x on 64-bit Ubuntu. There's a fix to be released from Mozilla, but for right now Firebug 1.5 is *not* a good idea... of course, you're likely reading this in Firefox, so likely too late. You can revert to Firebug 1 ...
I'm finding myself spending too much time (again) on this little "chat track" project... which leads me to think about other things I could be playing with:
- 3D renderers and/or game engines
- Mobile games
- XMPP (and/or Wave)
- Educational tools
I *still* haven't finished the remaining core piece of ...
As I work on my little Tornado project I occasionally run into things that are packaged for other frameworks, CouchDB, Recaptcha, that kind of thing. They're the kind of thing that you can write a basic client for in a few hours (less for Recaptcha, of course), but then you realize there's corner ...
Once again I have put off finding a roomie to share my room at PyCon. I've got a double-bed double-occupancy room. I normally stay out pretty late, but come in quietly, having exhausted my voice. Reservation is 18th to the 25th. $157/night split 50/50.
Figured I should test on IE7 and 8, and as usual when I go to test on IE, I found myself thinking "really?" about the bugs that showed up... missing "push" and "forEach" on arrays? Crashing because of a check for whether an attribute is defined? Requiring a different event-binding to capture <return>? Sigh. Whatever ...
