I swear my 2YO is housing some sort of fission reactor. Up several times during the night, then up at 6 full of energy. I am stuffed =)

Hrm... facepalm... "" != "" #python

I have the date in the title of my blog entries, recently  I added some code to do this automatically. When defining the model originally I had This set the default title of my blog to the date and time when the model was evaluated. So when I came back the next day to add an entry the date was for the day I added the code and touched the .wsgi file. By passing the function, not the result it means that the function is evaluated when a record is made.

First week at the new job went well. So many new toys! Lots of new stuff to learn.

Watched Unstoppable last night. Good movie. They take use of the Battlestar Galactica handycam-with-zoom-to-draw-attention to a new level.

I really should stop adding features to my new website and put it live. It will never be done!

I found a great site demonstrating how to add reCaptcha to the existing comments app from django.contrib.

So, there is blog, wiki and gallery, thats all the old featured covered. Time for a new feature. Today I wrote an app which pulls my tweets from the twitter API and stores them in the database and also display the last few in the side bar. The app has one new comonent which I don't normally use - a management interface.This allows an external call using running on crontab to go and fetch the last few messages.

I also ran through a lot of old blogs and tagged them - the tag cloud is looking a lot healthier now.
