Yup, you said it. Ireland, North West, raining? Of course it is
raining dammit!

Anyway, getting back on track... I stopped worrying about
Python about a month ago. Traffic on this list has
increased dramatically. Zope is just about the coolest
thing I have seen this century [:-)]. XML and Python are
like burgers'n'chips, salt'n'pepper, Astair and Rogers....

Python is on a roll. Enjoy the ride!!!!!
