While not a technical point, I thought I'd mention to this group that ActiveState just announced several things, including some Python-related projects. See www.ActiveState.com for details.
Thanks for pointing that out! I just took a natural opportunity to plug the Visual Studio integration on c.l.py: it's very important that we do everything we can to support and promote commercial Python endeavors at every conceivable opportunity <wink>.
PS: In case anyone's still under the delusion that cool Python jobs are hard to find, let me know. =)
Ditto cool speech recognition jobs in small companies about to be devoured by Belgian conquerors. And if anyone is under the illusion that golden handcuffs don't bind, I can set 'em straight on that one too. hiring-is-darned-hard-everywhere-ly y'rs - tim
