I'm still getting the hang of this place, but I think I like it.
I must say that I'm impressed with the response I got from my initial entry. dwhite e-mailed me about medusa (which I know as asyncore.py in the Python standard build). I was already using it (and yes, it is quite helpful in desiging select()-based daemons!), but it was cool to see that I'm not just typing to dead air.
No doubt he was lured in by my Python and FreeBSD fnords.
