Python is n337!

Ah, the festive season. Time for friends and family. Lots of that, not a lot of computer stuff in the last couple weeks. I have been doodling with Python a bit though. It sure does make strapping together scripts very easy. The is enough versitility in the language itself and the plethora of available modules that many scripts are quite simple (e.g. short). In writing code to interact with a database and the local filesystem, I was able to test the scripts by executing the code, including exception handling, in an interactive session. 40 lines will go a long way in Python which is really nice. And it is easy to make it legible, unlike you, Perl.

Enough about that, I'm going back to poking stuff with sticks.
