Why python is nice

Nice post at me­chan­i­cal­, about why python makes good pro­gram­ming eas­ier, or at least not hard­er.

Queue Management with Qmail

Brand new ar­ti­cle, just fin­ished writ­ing it.

This ar­ti­cle de­scribes the queue sys­tem of qmail, and the tools you can use to man­age it. Al­so, it in­tro­duces a new one, called qmail-­clean­er, to find mes­sages in the queue that match a giv­en reg­u­lar ex­pres­sion.


Since KRecipes seems to be using QSQLite without much trouble, it seems the nice guys who adopted it have fixed it enough to work.

So, I just sent a pro­pos­al to kde-­core-de­v­el to in­clude it some­where vis­i­ble, and thus en­cour­age peo­ple to use DBs in their app­s. Let's see how it turns out.

New PyDS

I had up­dat­ed to PyDS 0.5.2 and won­dered why I saw no change... well, it turns out one has to up­date the tem­plates in ~/.PyD­S, of course.

Now, I will try to do that and then port back the changes I had made.
