    A long thread about Web development: why to use templates, and why
    frameworks actually do help developers:

    Why do compiled C extensions on Windows use '.pyd' in their name instead
    of '.dll'?
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/t/c8d93871cc5f31dc/

    Pyfora, a web forum about Python, was lauched recently. Will this
