What happened to python-dev's Google Group?

http://groups.google.com/group/python-dev2
It seems it no longer exists. What happened?

I don't know, but something happened to the numpy-discussion Google Group
gateway, too. Maybe there was a mass culling of such gateways that weren't being
maintained, or something like that.

Not this again.

This happened back in August, with a whole range of groups seemingly
vanishing, including the group for web.py. They came back eventually,
but of course Google doesn't say anything about what happened.

Google crashed for a day a week or so ago. It recovered,
but not 100%. You can still see the effects in
alt.folklore.co mputers (infamous for its never ending
threads) that now has numerous sub-threads promoted to
independent threads all with the same name.

What's better about Ruby than Python? I'm sure there's something. What is it? This is not a troll. I'm language shopping and I want people's answers. I don't know beans about Ruby or have any preconceived ideas about it. I have noticed, however, that every programmer I talk to who's aware of Python is also talking about Ruby. So it seems that Ruby has the potential to compete with and displace Python. I'm curious on what basis it...

The question I have is: how safe / future proof / portable is the use of the __subclasses__ method that exists for new-style classes? Background: I thought I had found an easy-to-understand application for metaclasses: making classes instantly aware of their subclasses.

One of the reasons I like python so much is that the standard installation comes with a whole lot of libraries to do lots of useful things but there seem to be a few things missing from the standard library which would be useful in many projects: Encryption - AES and 3DES. Possibly RSA and Certificate processing. DNS - Something better than gethostbyaddr for looking up other record types. Database - Something suitable for small projects...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
