Looks like some coworkers ( taw, misa), have joined advogato. Of course cturner, DV, and jbj were already here.

Work proceeds as normal. Lots of deadlines. Lots of python coding. More and more SQL. More and more pygtk/glade.

Progress continues on up2date. Spent most of last week fixing a few dozen bugs in it, mostly minor thankfully.

Btw, if your writing python code and not using pychecker. Run now and install it and run it on your code. Very handy. I've taken to adding pychecker targets to our makefiles that build python code.

Looks like the eternal package format wars continue. Software packageing is hard, lets go shopping.

Went and saw Lake Trout a few days ago. Highly recomended. Odd crowd though. Apparently they were sort of a jazzy hippy jam band at one point, but then got sort of electronic, and then lots heavier. Seeing a crowd of about half "hippies" doing that spinny dance thing to the encore of "War Pigs" was interesting, to say the least. Great show, made even better by the fact that my friends' band "Japan Air" opened up and played well.

Also saw the movie "The Score". Not bad. A little predictable, but okay. The "hacker" in the movie included a stuffed penguin on his desk, and at some point was shown typing away at a bash prompt after logging into a "linux 2.0.30" box. 2.0.30? Did they find a copy of 4.2 in a timecapsule or something?
