Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (Aug 25)

QOTW: "You're only overlooking the consequences of an infinite amount of
information <wink>." -- Tim Peters on why the bitwise-not operator is
equivalent to -(n+1).

"Perl, Python, Ruby and Tcl are the four dynamic programming languages that
get the most publicity as open source projects, and I think they have a lot
more in common than they differ." -- Guido van Rossum

Everything Python-related you want is probably one or two clicks away in
these pages:

Python.org's Python Language Website is the traditional
center of Pythonia
http://www.python.org
Notice especially the master FAQ
http://www.python.org/doc/FAQ.html

PythonWare complements the digest you're reading with the
daily python url
http://www.pythonware.com/daily
Mygale is a news-gathering webcrawler that specializes in (new)
World-Wide Web articles related to Python.
http://www.awaretek.com/nowak/mygale.html
While cosmetically similar, Mygale and the Daily Python-URL
are utterly different in their technologies and generally in
their results.

sure to scan this newly-revitalized newsgroup at least weekly.

Andrew Kuchling and Michael Hudson of summarizing action on the
python-dev mailing list once every other week.
