    QOTW: "Excessive cleverness can lead to unmaintainable code. So can
    excessive stupidity." -- Alan Morgan

    "Also Python code is pretty bare-metal, so that file.write or
    socket.write go to the syscall immediately. Try that in Java and you'll
    find 30 layers of complex abstractions for doubtful benefits and obvious
    slowness." -- Giovanni Bajo

    If you want a computer with fewer keys than a mobile phone, you can now
    hack away in you favourite programming language on your Apple iPod!

    Yet another program is saved from unwarranted use of regular expressions!

    Yes, it's feasable to write Python DJing software. Hopefully, the OP
    realized that the answer was yes before the thread turned into
    pseudopilosophical drivel.

    ========================================================================
    Everything Python-related you want is probably one or two clicks away in
    these pages:

    Python.org's Python Language Website is the traditional
    center of Pythonia
    http://www.python.org
    Notice especially the master FAQ
    http://www.python.org/doc/FAQ.html

    PythonWare complements the digest you're reading with the
    marvelous daily python url
    http://www.pythonware.com/daily
    Mygale is a news-gathering webcrawler that specializes in (new)
    World-Wide Web articles related to Python.
    http://www.awaretek.com/nowak/mygale.html
    While cosmetically similar, Mygale and the Daily Python-URL
    are utterly different in their technologies and generally in
    their results.

    For far, FAR more Python reading than any one mind should
    absorb, much of it quite interesting, several pages index
    much of the universe of Pybloggers.
    http://lowlife.jp/cgi-bin/moin.cgi/PythonProgrammersWeblog
    http://www.planetpython.org/
    http://mechanicalcat.net/pyblagg.html

    comp.lang.python.announce announces new Python software. Be
    sure to scan this newsgroup weekly.

    Steve Bethard, Tim Lesher, and Tony Meyer continue the marvelous
    tradition early borne by Andrew Kuchling, Michael Hudson and Brett
    Cannon of intelligently summarizing action on the python-dev mailing
    list once every other week.
    http://www.python.org/dev/summary/

    The Python Package Index catalogues packages.
    http://www.python.org/pypi/

    The somewhat older Vaults of Parnassus ambitiously collects references
    to all sorts of Python resources.
    http://www.vex.net/~x/parnassus/

    Much of Python's real work takes place on Special-Interest Group
    mailing lists
    http://www.python.org/sigs/

    Python Success Stories--from air-traffic control to on-line
    match-making--can inspire you or decision-makers to whom you're
    subject with a vision of what the language makes practical.

    The Python Software Foundation (PSF) has replaced the Python
    Consortium as an independent nexus of activity. It has official
    responsibility for Python's development and maintenance.
    http://www.python.org/psf/
    Among the ways you can support PSF is with a donation.

    The old Python "To-Do List" now lives principally in a
    SourceForge reincarnation.

    The online Python Journal is posted at pythonjournal.cognizor.com.
    and
    welcome submission of material that helps people's understanding
    of Python use, and offer Web presentation of your work.

    del.icio.us presents an intriguing approach to reference commentary.
    It already aggregates quite a bit of Python intelligence.

    There is *not* an RSS for "Python-URL!"--at least not yet. Arguments
    for and against are occasionally entertained.


    Suggestions/corrections for next week's posting are always welcome.
    E-mail to <> should get through.

    (approximately), ask <> to subscribe. Mention
    "Python-URL!".

    Dr. Dobb's Journal (http://www.ddj.com) is pleased to participate in and
    sponsor the "Python-URL!" project.
