Today is election day in the United States. Here are the winners
from a much simpler yet equally non-scientific selection
process:

The Python Consortium is started! Hewlett-Packard and LLNL
provides the marquee status and the big bucks, Digital Creations
the wildly successful application, Interet quietly chips in, along
with Foretec Seminars, the first organization that had a check in
hand!

Michel Pelletier (of Digital Creations) and Dan York (of
LinuxCare) announce that they are writing a Zope book for O’Reilly
and Associates:

Jan Walter announces some scripts for Blender, a computer
graphics rendering tool, with very nice pictures to boot:

David S. Harrison puts forth code which formats number for human
consumption:

Scot Hacker explains how good scripting BeOS is

Tim Peters sort of sorts out some of the sort issues sorted out
between 1.5.1 and 1.5.2:

The same Tim accounts for a surprising ‘feature’ involving
testing the object identity of immutable objects which puzzled
Pearu Peterson and yours truly:
