A certain someone has been prodding me to start blogging again, and my excuses have finally run out, so here's a random post to get started again with.
I've just cleared out four months' worth of caught spam (hooray for Habari's spam catcher!), and sorted through all the unapproved (mostly spam) comments. This "spamment" in particular made me smile, if only for its sheer cheek:
Please, do not delete the given message. Money obtained from spam will go to the help hungry to children ugandn
To all the hungry to children ugandn out there: I'm sorry, my finger slipped.
In other news, I've recently started to teach myself Python, and I've been amazed at how well it "fits my brain", as someone else once said about a programming language. Python is incredibly easy to pick up (at least if you already know the basics of programming), and I've found myself becoming quite at home with its idioms -- unlike when I tried Ruby, sadly. I'll have to give Ruby another try one of these years. Its class and inheritance syntax makes more immediate sense to me, that's for sure.
I've also upgraded Habari now, which was pleasantly painless to do. I'll make my own theme for it one of these days, when I've got something better to do.
