Either/or?  I think I have some understanding of some aspects of Python 
programming (Regular expressions, various internet standards, Windows 
interface).  But I would have to be walked through pair programming rules 
and commonly used source control (I rolled my own).  Since I am using 
Windows and work on my own, I am expert/novice at different things than 
some others.

Bringing my notebook for live experimentation would be a barrier. I 
normally do a backup before I travel and usually need to change TCP/IP and 
security settings if I connect outside my own network.  Ironport is a long 
drive to just show up and see what happens so I am likely to pass on this 
meeting topic.

I have not read this but it sounds like there is enough material here for a 
standard presentation.  I would like to see a real presentation.

Aahz, I would be willing to split the meeting with you/someone.  I could 
put together a 45 minute regular expression tutorial.  I could include 
interfacing to Windows via ctypes material to fill out an entire 
meeting.  Later this year, I may have something interesting to say on 
http/https programming (especially https debug) but it is too early now ...

Regards, Dennis
