Maybe I should hire an email secretary (Someone to battle the email-backlog-beast)

There are... well... thousands and thousands of emails in my various inboxes all waiting for responses. There's 200+ PyOpenGL emails marked needing attention. There's 300+ sitting in the main inbox. I'm thousands of messages behind on Python list. Maybe I should just take a day sometime soon and just wade through it all. I try ...

OpenGL-ctypes play in the margins (Where's the time...)

I've been trying to work on OpenGL-ctypes in the hours here and there. Mostly minor fixes. I've added the Demos directory from PyOpenGL. I've added and tested the Tk/Togl system with Togl 1.7 (system install (though there was no emerge for Gentoo and required re-emerging Python with Tkinter (yay, Tkinter isn't included in Python))) and ...

Apparently I've become somewhat used to A/C (Crash in the heat of the home-office)

Linux Caffe's power was out when I got there this morning, so after a quick stop to pick up a cell phone for the business I came home, intending to just sit down and work. Lying down on the floor was solely done to say hello to little Caillou (the puppy), but I wound up ...

Invoicing with ReportLab (A bit of sample code for the curious...)

Have been working with the open-source ReportLab package to create invoices the last few days. The results aren't what I would consider beautiful yet, but they are a reasonable layout format for an invoice. Since it took me a bit of time to set it up I figure I'll share it with the world.

The ...

Grams packs the house one last time (Thank you all...)

Grams funeral was very well attended, lots of friends and family. She was a tiny, lovable lady and she will be missed dearly. St Hilda's (her retirement village) sent a whole van full of her friends over for the funeral. Neat fact I was reminded of today: Soni lives just a few doors down from ...

First day with the little puppy (Alone, at least...)

Rose's little puppy (Caillou, pronounced Kayu) was alone in his new cage when I got home today. I took him out, played with him, fed him some kibble by hand (he thinks it's a treat), and then Rosey got home and told me he hadn't been outside in hours... so that's what all the hyper-ness ...

Wild Cowlicks

I stroked her hair just yesterday
As she always pretended to hate
Smoothing down wild cowlicks
As I told her of the passing week
About our new dog arriving
With my little sister returning
I don't know if she heard
Through the drugs and dreams
But at least I stroked her hair

Sharing Her

I tried to share her
Cajoling friends along
She charmed them to a one
With easy smiles she won them
With open heart she took them
With a hug she set them free
