I'm not 100% certain about the "AWESOME" part, but there was an
off-list, vaguely described recruitment email that mentioned Python
recently, yes.  I think that exhausts everything I might rememebr about
it, as it went very quickly to the place that such trash belongs, and
is no longer accessible here at all, at all.

BTW, and thinking of the recent discussion, I see you still have a very
typical blog, with nasty teeny body text (sized in pixels, for all
that's silly!) and lots of useless, blog-standard whitespace making the
text a fairly narrow column.  Firebug made it pretty simple to find the
offending CSS (font-size in body, width in #primary .primary), and with
those disabled it no longer looks so stylish - a style which
unavoidably makes me think of a poor student trying to hide the fact
that he has far less to say than the assignment required.  I know, it's
an inapproriate response in this context, but that's free associations
for ya...

So in this recent context that got me thinking that if Firebug and
greasemonkey were a little bit integrated, this fixing silly formatting
in web pages thing might seem more worth the effort... assuming I read
any blogs more often than every once in a while anyhow.

the past always tries to stop us.  Freedom is about stopping the past,
but we have lost that ideal.  -- Lawrence Lessig
