APIs in Near-Obsessive Detail

Geek break!

Over the next little while, I’m going to be covering all manner of APIs
in near -obsessive detail. If you’re a programmer, I’m going to be your
new best friend. Watch this space for announcements.

Be sure to check out the blog I get paid to write — The Farm — where I’ve started to examine the classes of wxPython, starting with the humble wx.MessageDialog and Linus’ favourite debugging tool, the stdout/stderr window.


Carnival of the Canucks #20

Not only is it the first of June, it’s also time for another edition  of Carnival of the Canucks, a Canadian blogger-hosted festival of Canadian links!

This edition’s host is Jen at her blog, Circadian Shift. In it, she covers:

  • The upcoming federal elections in Canada
  • Food (including the battle between Krispy Kreme and Tim Horton’s)
  • Insights and helpful hints
  • and good ol’ Canada, including the fact that her Canada includes Accordion Guy (and Raging Kraut, too!). Thanks, Jen!
It Happened to Me

Thank You

My thanks to all who sent emails and left comments about Granddad and his diary entries.
I hope you enjoyed reading them as much as I did, and if it inspires
some of you to write your own personal decalogues and purpose-in-life
statements, even better.

To the nice young lady who yelled “My Canada includes Accordion Guy!” from a streetcar as it passed by: thanks! That made my weekend.
