I don't know if this would be of use to anyone else, but I'd like to get some 
feedback on a couple of short Python programs I'm writing. One is a subclass of 
PySerial which adds a few methods to support the RC Servo hardware I 
demonstrated last meeting. The other program exercises the RC servos while 
displaying servo status and sensor information. I'd like these programs to look 
good to experienced Python programmers, as I plan to submit them with an article 
I'm writing.

Is this something that would be appropriate at a meeting, posted to this mailing 
list for comment, or is there a different Python forum for this sort of thing?

I'd be interested in seeing talks on distribution tools, WxPython and the most 
Pythonic way to do multithreading.

Anyplace that I can get my monthly glass of Hefeweizen is fine with me for the
