Last night was particularily interesting -- just went to sleep early. However, this morning I found out two patches have been assigned to me. Oooopssss. Well, I'm not sure why Guido assigned my the eptags patch, so I'm not doing anything until he clarifies that. In any case, I rewrote eptags to use tokenize -- parsing with plain re is just plain hard. I'm supposed to just commit the goddamned SimpleHTTPServer patch. Friday Adi visits me and fixes my modem, and that's it. One way or another, I'm going to connect the damn machine to the net.
Oh, last night Alex came back from reserves, and there was much joy, especially after I surrendered all my beliefs so Debi will let me speak to him. Fun. Then I talked to Debi for a bit, and told her I miss her. Wuuuuuu!!!!!!! I miss a Debi!!!!! I miss a horizontal Debi!!!!!!! I miss a vertical Debi!!!!!!!!. She said she was insulted that I didn't mention it in my diary, so maybe this will fix it.
Today was good: ESR liked my Product patch (and try to make it into something it isn't). Fredrik Lundh decided he liked my unicode-8 bit comparison suggestion the best. Wow, do I feel flattered.
List comprehensions won't make it into 2.0, which is probably a good thing. Now all that is left is to postpone augmented assignments. Guido relieved me of some of my worries about them, but I still had a bad feeling about them. 2.0 Python will be cool, though -- unicode, GC and __contains__, oh my!
