Just got my dead tree version of Programming Clojure by Stuart Halloway Friday, which reminded me I need to write a blog post about it.
I was browsing some announcements, and through a series of clicks, ran across Whoosh. Lucene is pretty recognized in the Java world as very flexible indexing and search framework. Whoosh appears to be doing that for the Python world. Occasionally, I’ve needed such a thing, but ended up writing my own lexer and indexer. I’ll have to keep this library in mind the next time a problem like that comes around.
My drive to and from work is anywhere from 20 minutes to 40 minutes, depending on the traffic (fortunately, it’s often much closer to 20 minutes). If you know me at all, then you know I hate to waste 20 minutes just driving. I need to feel like I’m doing something useful with that time. I often spend it listening to NPR, but I also spend quite a bit of the time listening to podcasts.
Glad to see that the documentation of how to use git with svn is finally becoming much more complete. If you haven’t seen the crash course, take a look: http://git.or.cz/course/svn.html
Recently, on the Bazaar mailing list, a question came up as to whether
rebase would be added to the core. My gut reaction was to say “that’s a bad idea” (not that I have any real say on the matter). However, Stephen J Turnbull started chiming in with a few things to help stop the spread of FUD around rebase. In particular, this message sparked my interest.
