      1. Understanding PSQL's MVCC

        Understanding PSQL's MVCC

        PostgresSQL implements something called MVCC. Which alleviates the need for a Read-Lock in many cases. However when Glenn Franxman and I were trying to figure out how this works we were having trouble understanding it completely.

        If you ask about MVCC in the #postgres irc channel ...

        1. Template Tag Caveat

          In the Django template system. There is a small caveat that you need to recognize when developing your own template tags.

          When Django parses the Node tree it creates a template.Node instance for each template tag in the template. The node tree is just like our beloved HTML DOM ...

          1. appengine vs twitter part 2

            If your a Django or Appengine hacker and want to help me out, simply branch the Meow code with bazaar and you can "bzr send" me patches. I'll be ...

            1. appengine vs twitter

              So Glenn Franxman was opining this afternoon about how twitter is going to reach a point where they're going to grow to big and need to make money somehow. He said that they're either going to have to throw ads everywhere or hope to be aquired.

              He thinks ...

              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. is opensource really all that great for companies

                  So I released my feedclowd code as open source and I needed to pick license. The requirements I wanted in a license were this, you may use the source code but if you modify that source code you must make your source code available. In my ignorance, that's what ...

                      1. Your own appengine

                        My main gripe with appengine is that while you're sticking your app on a lot of iron, it's pretty much stuck there forever because of the infrastructure. Your app is not portable. You can't just take it off of Google's iron and host it yourself.

                        So ...

                        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 ...

                            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 ...

                              I managed to get django-registration installed now. So you all can now create users.

                              I'll get comments installed as soon as I get a chance. I wanted to get the registration working first before allowing comment.
