Ralsina.Me — Roberto Alsina's website

And so does uqbar

It's bet­ter than I re­mem­ber. Spe­cial­ly be­cause the SF CVS ver­sion is new­er than all the copies I had on disk (I won­der how that hap­pened).

In fac­t, it has a nice trick to cre­ate er­ror di­alogs from any ex­cep­tion I am lift­ing right away for oth­er apps :-)

The on­ly prob­lem it does have is that python's url­lib and url­lib2 sup­port for FTP seems to suck.

You can't choose the user­name and pass­word?

Sailor (Guten­berg's main server) is picky about the pass­word you send, and ralsi­na@rober­to, which url­lib in­sist on us­ing (user­name@host­name) does­n't pass muster.

And ft­plib, which can do the right thing, does­n't let me give progress of the down­load, which would make the pro­gram aw­ful.

Oh, well.
