Oddball python import issue?

Thursday, July 16th, 2009

It seems when I have the import within my function I get some strange behavior.  For lack of cooperative blog formatting, here’s a link to the code and the results.  I tested this with python 2.5.2 and 2.6.2.

Now that I’ve pinpointed the issue I can easily work around it.  But .. I’m still curious if anyone can tell me what is going on?  Is this a feature?  Or is there a bug at work here?

Galcon at 360iDev

Monday, July 13th, 2009

“I just got accepted to speak at the 360iDev Conference!  The show will be going down September 27 to 30, 2009.  It’s looking like it’s gonna be a great show, especially with yours truly speaking. The first one was a hit among the attendees and this one is looking even better than the last. Tickets are cheaper on a first come, first serve basis! So buy your tickets asap at to get the best possible price. See you there and you better go to my session!”

So, yeah, .. It should be awesome.  I managed to secure an 80 minute talk spot – which will include me talking about dev, Nan talking about the community, and Tim talking about the audio.  So it’s really going to be a great opportunity to meet the whole Galcon team.
