I'm on Twitter now
Since I quietly mentioned it in passing recently, I suppose I might as well make it official and admit that I've gotten myself a Twitter account (despite the lack of names that I like). You can find me as thatcks.
(Given my usual bad habits with new information sources, I may go wild with following people and then frantically scale back as I get overwhelmed. Or I may go the other way this time around and be really cautious about following people.)
Disclaimer: my login name is subject to potential change, partly because I may decide that I don't want to be vaguely irritated every time I see it. Unfortunately I don't like any of the obvious alternatives better, plus Twitter does kind of put a premium on short names.
PS: I don't plan to tweet links to new WanderingThoughts entries for reasons that don't fit in the margins of this quick note.
DWiki's code is now on Github (among other things)
As a followup to my first experiment with coding in public, I've put a few other Python projects up on Github. They are:
- dwiki, the code for DWiki
itself (the software that runs this blog), plus the basic page
templates and so on that I use. I'm not entirely happy with the
actual organization of the code, but I have no energy to reform
it at this point (or, more likely, rewrite it from scratch).
(At the moment the specific additional templates for WanderingThoughts are not bundled in.)
- portnanny is a powerful
inetd-like frontend for a single TCP service, with a great deal of
filtering power. It's also the Python code that I'm probably most
proud of, since I think I did a decent job of structuring it and
(The quality of its code may be related to the fact that it was a total rewrite of an earlier attempt.)
- python-netblock is a Python module for dealing with sets of IP address ranges; as part of this it has a module for sets of integer ranges in general. It comes with a command line netblock calculator that I use all the time (although there's no manpage for it right now).
I've made an index page for all of my Github things that I intend to keep up to date, or you can of course just look at things on Github.
