  • Great points on the limitations of Planet Python, my main source of news on Python-related stuff.
  • People tend to oppose radical change and then later on admit that change wasn't that bad; in this one case, an apology was even given.
  • A great explanation to the question Does Python pass by reference or pass by value?
  • Am working on giving a product of ours ability to speak Socket CAN, and I really appreciate its official documentation on it, which is quite well-written and thorough (but assumes prior knowledge of working sockets); one more reason to be grateful of the Linux kernel project.
