    1. Example Django Ajax app

      I created an example django ajax application in the svn repos. If anyone is interested, the README.html should help you get that up and running.

      Still on the agenda is template tags to ease the use of django ajax for those Javascript impaired

      1. Experimenting

        I ran across Smisk two days ago and though. "Hmm, someone should write a wsgi adaptor for that".

        Maybe an hour after I had that thought, I started working on one. It was pretty easy. Smisk's classes seem to be inspired by WSGI, all the wsgi environment variables had ...

                1. First Day at Naples Daily News

                  I had to return to Naples Daily News for a meeting with the Corporate folks. I woke up in the morning to find that my wife didn't pack my Khakis. So I was a little annoyed because I would be under dressed. My wife drove me to the NDN ...

                      1. Google Apps Engine, wait what?!?

                        So I saw a post to this last night and I thought, "Oh it's like Amazon's EC2 I won't ever need that".

                        Much to my surprise this morning, it's something I could really need. It's a sandboxed distributed web framework. No need for load balancing ...

                        1. Google Apps Engine without Django colored glasses

                          So after a day of mulling over GAE, I've come up with one conclusion. For one-off apps, this is brilliant. What Ruby and Rails did in it's heyday, this is going to do. No need to figure out how to set up a web server or configure a ...

                              1. Hey! You got some emo in my hair-band.

                                I saw this band on MTV the other day, Coheed and Cambria. I'm really digging their sound. It's like Rush if they decided to dive into 80's hair metal. Many describe them as Emo Progressive rock. The lead singer looks/sounds like the illegitimate son of the ...

                                    Yesterday I was playing with Gnome's basic layout and I decided because Deskbar was so good at locating what I wanted that it was quicker to use Deskbar than the standard Gnome application list. I decided to take things ...
