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 writing tests.

    (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.
