Python-URL! - the (approximately) weekly digest of
 news and snippets from the Python community.

 For the CORBA-inclined, there was some great news out 
 of AT&T Labs, Cambridge:
  In http://www.deja.com/getdoc.xp?AN=546873219
  Duncan Grisby announced omniORB, a free C++ ORB 
  conforming to the OMG's (draft) Python mappings.
  http://www.uk.research.att.com/omniORB/omniORBpy/

 Robin Dunn announces release 2.1.11 of wxPython, 
 a wrapper for the full-featured and snappy cross-platform
 GUI wxWindows.

 In a series of mysterious and understated messages
 (like http://www.deja.com/getdoc.xp?AN=548355817),
 an awesome new compendium of Python resource links is
 divulged: http://www.vex.net/~x/parnassus/. The highly
 dynamic author and maintainer can be referred to
 as "Tim Middleton", for those who are old-fashioned
 about that sort of thing.

 Jeffrey Kunce shares his configuration for doing
 a shared NT network installation of python:

 There were a couple messages on Python in the big time:
  Paul Everitt in  
  http://www.deja.com/getdoc.xp?AN=546857881
  points us to an article about the merger of eGroups and  
 Onelist:

  While Fredrik in
   http://www.deja.com/getdoc.xp?AN=546861601 
   points to an article on Searchbutton.com

 Speaking of big-time, Skip Montanaro talks about the 
 configuration of one high volume Python-powered website: his
 own Musi-Cal site:

 Finally, from the "what-the?" dept., the eff-bot comments on 
 Latin-1 and other strange characters in Python:
