A few suggestions: something Python related that you find interesting, something you’ve been working on, a tool that you have found helpful, tips and tricks you’d like to share, or ways in which you’ve used Python poorly, but would like to save others the same pain would all be great talks! Submissions are due by this Friday, August 14 so please get yours in today!

Epic Lameness

Eric Dorland - lun, 09/01/2008 - 17:26 now supports OpenID. Hooray! I'd like to make a comment on a thread about the RTL8187se chip I've got in my new MSI Wind. So I go to sign in with OpenID and instead of signing me in it prompts me to create an account with a name, username and password for the account. Huh? I just want to post to their forum, I don't want to create an account (at least not explicitly, if they want to do it behind the scenes fine). Isn't the point of OpenID to not have to create accounts and particularly not have to create new usernames and passwords to access websites? I'm not impressed.

Sentiment Sharing

Eric Dorland - lun, 08/11/2008 - 23:28
Biella, I am from there and I do agree. If I was still living there I would try to form a team and make a bid. Simon even made noises about organizing a bid at DebConfs past. I wish he would :)

But a DebConf in New York would be almost as good.
