Went out to lunch with Chris,
John and Dean (who I don't think has a blog).
That was pretty cool. We talked about a bunch of stuff and the hamburgers
at Christopher's in Porter Square (Cambridge, MA, USA) are really good.
I continued working on adding enclosure viewing support to the subscribe
preview page in Firefox 3.0. I've almost got Yahoo MRSS support in. Mental
note: one wastes less time if one double-checks the tests to make sure they're
testing correctly. Oops.
I'm doing some minor mentoring for
mostly on PyBlosxom related tasks. I'm on both of the mailing lists for GHOP-PSF
and it's hard to keep in mind that the people working on these tasks are
students in high school and early undergrad. It's like an army of really
able, but not very experienced, bodies hungrily munching large bites out
of project todo items. PyBlosxom had 4 tasks in last week and 4 in this
week. It's great because the help is fantastic and it's forcing me to
get around to work on organizing the project and development for PyBlosxom
If you're in high school or college and want to do some Python-related work,
definitely take a look at GHOP! If you're a Pythonista or Pythoneer and
have some spare cycles, definitely come help us mentor. If you have a
Python project and need help with screencasts, documentation, testing and
other small tasks, take a look at GHOP.
Titus has more on his blog.
PyBlosxom 2.0 is going to be a huge overhaul from PyBlosxom 1.4. I'm getting
lots of help from the people who hang out on
IRC, Ryan, Michael and various other people who pop on, ask questions and
help identify issues. Progress is excellent so far.
In PCF land, I have a blog focused on PCF work and Miro development. It's
I figured I'd keep it separate. It runs on WordPress so that's giving me
some WordPress experience.
Whoever fixed NetworkManager for Ubuntu Gutsy should get a gold star. I
did an update on 12/4 and picked up a new set of packages and my perpetual
wireless networking problems all went away. Bless you!
Also, if you've got young children in your life, definitely take a look at
Bee Careful Marvin.
It's geared towards children up to around 6 or so. You can get a
professionally printed version at Lulu, but you can also download a
PDF for free. It's released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-SA 3.0 license and
