Long trips definitely suck, esp. when you’re making them alone. Exactly for these occasions I absolutely love the battery in my little PowerBook 12”: Nearly 4 hours if I treat it nicely and so I normally also take something to read with me on the trip … on my Mac ;)
Well, OK, in my train there were enough plugs in each area, so I could have also brightened the whole thing up and done some more compiling, but I guess esp. the latter on would have burned my Jeans.
So back to reading … this time? The ZopeBook 2.6 as PDF. I wanted to get into Zope for quite some time now esp. since I’m always in the mood to learn yet another framework ;)
Well, after 10 minutes of installing ZODB and Zope I wanted to give it a try to follow the examples in the book … just to find out, that Zope seems not to work with Python 2.5 yet. At least there seems to be a small bug in there with the
classImplements(OverflowWarning, IOverflowWarning) interface binding … I always thought there was only an OverflowError (at least to me a Warning for something like that wouldn’t make all that much sense to me), but I’m still too new to Python ;-) Seems like it was there back in Python 2.4 but already with a nice deprecation warning that this Warning won’t exist in 2.5. Well, since I’m not really motivated to install Zope twice, I will simply make this a theoretical session :-(
Just a small break to who you how bored I was *g*
