Vanity blog

As a consequence of the above mentioned feature of mine I am depressingly bad at keeping vanity blogs updated. This is clearly evident from my diary here.

Reading

Bugs in Writing by Lyn Dupr\'e and G\:odel, Escher, Bach by Douglas R. Hofstadter. The former is part of my mission to become a better writer; the latter is good philosophical reading.

Hacking

I got tired of Twisted some time ago. So, in a fit of Hybris, I wrote a network-programming library using stackless tasklets, and built a web server on top of it. Also, I implemented most of Zope Page Templates. Put those two together, and you get a web server that you can easily hack, along with nice separation of logic and presentation. And you get it without the icky frameworks that the Twisted (and Zope, I suppose) crowd like so much. I like it. A lot.
