Why don't I just find some university somewhere that'll give room, board and computer for teaching? (To need only think, teach, and grow... with occasional faculty meetings)

So I wound up spending the whole work-day on PySNMP and TwistedSNMP (after I finally got home from the long meeting and getting a haircut). Turns out I broke compatibility with the official PySNMP when I released the last TwistedSNMP version. Oops, fixed that, also put out a snapshot of the patched PySNMP so people can play with that.

Then took a couple of hours to try to explain why I think PySNMP is slow so that Ilya can avoid more of the same in version 4. And truth be told, I loved it.

I like leading people, I know that. I like solving extremely complex problems ("sifting the dialectic" as they say). I like writing, acting, dancing, singing, photography, sketching, philsophy, mathematics, and science. I'm generally fascinated by people, their motivations and psychology and their responses to (made) things. I even enjoy playing with computers somewhat. But what I love is teaching.

Of course, this from the idiot who hasn't managed to do any serious work on his PyCon presentation in how many days? Not likely to change today. It's already been a 16 hour day and I'm not particularly interested in inviting the flu back any time this week.

    Did you solve the laptop problem satisfactorily? If in need, I'm thinking I manage without mine for the week... i just need to find another wifi card for selena's (For some reason the wifi card in hers---netgear---won't associate with the hotspot (orinoco).

    Ooh, don't tempt me. You say that and all I can think of is doing OpenGLContext demos all week just to see what it looks like. We're bringing along D'Arcy's laptop, so we should be fine. Thanks for the offer though.
