magnitude more productive ..." - Rob Knapp

"Hanging out around the Python community will make you a better VB, dotNet
or C++ programmer ..." - Carl Trachte

"It was a revelation to bump into Python in 1996. Suddenly, there was

PythonWare complements the digest you're reading with the
marvelous daily python url
Mygale is a news-gathering webcrawler that specializes in (new)

Among the ways you can support PSF is with a donation.
