It took me a fair amount of time to get dbus-python-1.0.0 building and properly installing for python3 on my ubuntu system, so I figured I’d make a record of what I had to do. Note that I use the grep replacement grin in this work. After unpacking the source, first configure the build with the correct […]
I’m happy to announce the first “release” of lazy-slides, an experiment in slideshow generation for lazy bums. The idea is simple: You provide a list of keywords lazy-slides finds pictures from the internet matching those keywords lazy-slides creates a presentation/slideshow from those pictures You present! Right now it’s a bit rough. The only image source […]
I’ve released parameterized-testcase 0.2. This is primarily just a documentation release, with lots of improvements to the sphinx docs. Get it here.
The 0.4 release of ackward is available now at the project site. This release is focused on the logging module. It addresses a number of design issue and defects, and the sphinx documentation for logging is much more complete. It even includes example code for much of the module.
I’ve recently started making some progress on a project that I’ve wanted to do for a while now. The project, Thialfi *, fills the vacancy left in my life…indeed, in my heart…when “I Want Sandy” went offline. Sandy was something of an online digital assistant, and it (she?) probably had lots of features I never […]
When I started using wmii for my window manager, I wasn’t able to find a system-resources display tool that fit my needs. There’s probably one out there, but I figured it would be more fun to write one than look very hard, and thus the linseed project was born. It amounts to a collection of […]
I’ve put out my first release of the ackward library. You can get it at the project site. “Release early, release often”, they say. This release includes mostly-complete coverage of the the uuid, logging, time, and datetime modules. There are plenty of areas that need improvement, but I felt like it was time to get […]
I made some decent enhancements to PitaTranslate today. The main functionality is unchanged, but I made some usability and user-friendliness changes, in particular: Remembering user language selections between sessions. The normal usage pattern is to translate between between the same two languages almost all of the time, so I added a cookie which remembers. Added […]
It’s always fun to see UTD on the inter-webs, and even more fun when it includes my senior thesis advisor: http://www.utdallas.edu/news/2010/10/28-6621_Computer-Scientists-Make-Progress-on-Math-Puzzle_article.html
Back in July, I attended EuroPython 2010 in Birmingham, UK. The conference was fun, similar to last year’s, though I managed to be a bit more social this time. Among other things, I got to: get my fill of bagels drink a lot of good, British beer discuss pressing software problems at the LHC chair […]
