PyOpenGL 3.0.0c1 Available for Testing

This baby has been cooking for way too long.  If there's no show-stoppers reported, PyOpenGL 3.0.0c1 should be the same as the final release.  The only big change from the last beta is that it now includes GLUT and GLE implementations packaged as data-files for Win32 deployments.

3.0.0 is a complete rewrite of PyOpenGL using ...

Lazyweb: Best cell phone for Python hacking?

My cell phone's charger wound up left in St. Maarten, and since it was a piece of junk anyway I'm thinking I'll replace it with a reasonably "hackable" cell phone.  I'd particularly like something that can run Python, which I *think* limits me to Nokia S60-based devices.  So, what does the lazy-web suggest, what's the ...

Sprinting at PyCon

Call for sprints at PyCon has gone out.  I'm wanting to spend the time on PyOpenGL/OpenGLContext and SimpleParse/TTFQuery/PyDispatcher and the related libraries.  However, what I'd like to do is sprint on something "demoish" or "game engine-ish", that is, I want PyOpenGL 3.0.0 final out and a new release of the various libraries out, but then ...

Back from the Tropics

Got back from the Caribbean on Saturday morning.  Wound up sleeping most of Saturday and Sunday to recover (somehow working down there was way more exhausting that working up here, though being sick and not sleeping well might have been part of it).

Spent yesterday on personal errands, little cleanup tasks for various projects, and ...

I heart contributors

Have been having a great couple of weeks for contributors.  Frank has been doing far more work on SquareMap (the visualization component used in RunSnakeRun) than I have, and Godson is looking at the Asterisk 1.6 extensions for StarPy.  It really does make me feel better about projects when they move forward without waiting for ...

A few UI tweaks for RunSnakeRun

Quiet weekend, mostly out with friends and family, but did a bit of work on RunSnakeRun in the margins.  Got the toolbar finished, updated the documentation, got the "up" button working, cleaned up text strings so they are consistent throughout the UI (e.g. calling the "File View" the "File View" everywhere).  It's not exciting stuff, ...

But I just need 1 little function...

I'm working on a side project at the moment, just a clean-up for an old customer who was acquired and needs to be migrated off our old systems and onto their parent company's systems.  To do that, we need to make a single, simple calculation.  About half of the time so far in the project ...

Stealing time on the subway

Stole a few minutes to work on RunSnakeRun on the subway home from Linux Caffe this afternoon.  Normally I just keep working on whatever I was working on when I leave the caffe, but this project is a CGI system and I don't have the server locally... so instead of working on paying work I ...

Open Source Time

I'm not getting anywhere near enough time put into the various Open Source projects I want to work on, let alone time to work on my thesis.  I probably need a few solid weeks just to work on OS, and a few solid years to work on the thesis stuff.  A few weeks might happen ...
