Going to attempt to set up a Sugar development environment. The Gentoo installation stuff doesn't work any more (everything is masked out due to bugs/instability now). Apparently it'll run in a Qemu environment that allows for development work. Might be a workable solution if I can mount a directory into the image from the workstation. ...
Tim tells me that the ZODB (Zope Object Database) in which this blog is housed has grown to 12GB, largely composed of enormous amounts of comment spam. He's looking at how to shrink it down to something reasonable, but if that's the kind of spamming rate we're seeing we're going to need some way to ...
My plan last Wednesday was to get a given feature finished, have the customer review it on Thursday and then do some polishing. Various factors killed my productivity on Wednesday and Thursday (much of it being an aborted attempt to create the "right" system instead of the "right now" system). Still, woke up Friday planning ...
I spent most of yesterday and half of today trying to track down a bug in email sending from the billing system. We hadn't changed any code, but were suddenly seeing duplicate emails. Spent ages trying to find something wrong with the code, eventually just had to assume it was a system-level problem.
So, plaintive ...!-->!-->
Since there are more people using it and there are people wanting to share experiences and/or discuss usage we should use a mechanism that's a little more community oriented. In that vein, I'll try to switch to using the StarPy-users discussion list for most discussions of the library. Probably still post little snippets here once ...
Spent today on PyOpenGL. Got the nurbs code working for most of the demos. Cleaned up the GLU module implementation as I was doing that. Started work on the documentation, first updating the main page and then beginning work on the auto-generated documentation.
Good news is that the documentation generation process no longer requires so ...!-->!-->
Dad has a great post up from a few days ago.
No, say defender
Facing dark forces
On unkempt walls
Holding off demons
With soft words
Of hard wisdom
As the day fades
With each word
Will carry on
That his battle
Will help someone

I'm continuing to refactor the ISP/VoIP billing system as I add new features. Spent most of today working on a state-table based sub-system... sometime around 11pm I started writing yet another upgrade script (in the infinite series of upgrades scripts that is my life) and realised I should just back off half the changes again. ...
Have been working at home all month, so haven't been able to get down yet. Today, however, yay! Of course, I was up until 4am last night, so a bit slow off the mark. Oh well, a few hours of collegial atmosphere will do me good before PyGTA.
I'll be presenting ctypes this Tuesday at PyGTA. We have considerably longer at PyGTA than I will at PyCon, so we'll be able to go into more depth than we will in Texas. We're going to look at when/where/why and try to get into some of the how, time permitting.
As usual, we'll meet at ...!-->!-->
