Yay productivity!

So! I've been on one of my productive cycles. I don't think I've ever mentioned it; I seem to have very coarse-grained cycles of productivity -- usually up to a month long. I'll be completely useless code-wise one month, doing nothing but playing games and whatnot, and the next 2 or 3 weeks I'll do nothing but code. Boy, does it feel great to be on the upswing. I hope I can keep it up. I also just thought of something: you can probably analyze my cycles of productivity by checking how often I make CVS commits to Twisted. I'll have to bust out Gnumeric and make some charts of CVS commit data, one of these days.

So let's see, what have I done. It's all pretty much been Twisted stuff. I've made several releases (I am the release manager), and I've done lots of bug fixes and small feature improvements. I've also been working on a top-secret project involving Goo, namely a parser. I'll reveal more information as we get farther along.

I'm really excited about how Twisted Web is coming along. There have recently been a couple of really cool changes that allow you to deploy web applications a *lot* easier. Mainly this is accomplished by just throwing your application in a directory where a twisted server is serving from. Before this, you basically had to write scripts that created a _new_ web server listening on a port. I can't get over how much better this is.

I never knew this guy was a big blog freak. He's the guy that wrote, the NNTP server. Oh, and this looks *really* cool, but I don't think I'm healthy enough to try it, plus I've got a day job, so I wouldn't be able to take a nap at 10am and 2pm. :\

Speaking of k5, I'm beginning to enjoy it. I never really checked it out till recently, and it seems a *LOT* more enjoyable than /.. *groan*

Also, Donovan Preston is working on a Blog for Twisted. I was planning on switching to it tonight, but we ran into some bugs :-) hopefully you'll ('you' being the 2 people who I force to read my post) be seeing a post saying I've switched.
