Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (Jan 28)
 
QOTW: "It might be nice if it was widely understood (in IT) that Python was
a language any competent programmer could pick up in an afternoon, such that
Java, C, and Perl shops would not be concerned about the need for their staff
to learn a new language." -- Eric Pederson

"What's kind of surprising is that it has turned out to be easier to rewire
the entire world for high-bandwidth Internet than it is to make a good
replication architecture so you can work disconnected!" -- Joel

It's the Early Bird deadline for PyCon 2005!

A wide-ranging thread on "security" yields, among other high
points, a recommendation to read *Security Engineering* and
examples of real security issues Python has:
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/...b5a6a91590230/

Can Python operate on a Windows "desktop"? Sure, in a variety of
ways. Thanks to Dennis Benzinger, Jimmy Retzlaff, Vincent Wehren,
and others for their catalogue:

The martellibot illustrates why Python's introspection--and
__subclasses__, in particular--make correct "sandboxing" so
challenging for us:

After a rest of a couple months, it's time again to urge
consideration of IPython as your working shell:

4XSLT is thread-safe, but individual processor instances are not.
4Suite exploits processor-per-thread:

Thread inheritance with win32com requires Co*nitialize() management:
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/...3487f970825fc8

Gerald and the timbot speak sense on the platform-specificity that
is memory management.
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/...ef18c56f085eeb

Do NOT let your inheritance schemes complexify. One palliative
tactic is to remember (lazy) "containerization" as an alternative
to subclassing. And learn about decorators. And descriptors, for
that matter:

Do people still FTP? Well, Python people *can* ...:
