Written for their Ear


They say women love to hear
Poems written for their ear
Yet each line is hard wrought
Skirting stench of something sought
To try to honour the perfect rose
Without the bloom a threat to pose

Sleepy day and a quiet coffee turns in a party (How pleasant it is to see beautiful women...)


I was up very late last night pondering the question of how to make form-generation and processing that would be both straightforward and flexible enough to handle the vast majority of forms, both AJAX and POST.

DHCP goes south on the laptop (How did that happen...)

Forgot to clock in this afternoon (Whole day's work disappears...)


I did a bit of work on OpenGL-ctypes this morning, mostly just reintegrating the win32 changes so that the Linux build still works. I also killed a number of extension-module autogeneration problems. Doesn't actually make them work, but the modules are now valid Python (and correct, just useless until they get some extra code).
