    crash unexpectedly, and develop problems with applications." - promotional

    "It's a very good idea to read the entire FAQ as soon as you've gotten past
    the very basic Python level, so that you can save yourself and others a lot
    of time stumbling over the traditional problems that everyone goes through.
    You'll learn a lot of useful things in the process." - Peter Hansen

    ========================================================================
    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.
