QOTW: "The security 'droids have decided that since the MS Office Suite is a
'standard' application then software written in MS Office VBA must be 'safe.'
Any other development environments (such as Java, Perl, Cygwin) are 'unsafe'
and can't be installed." - Peter Olsen

"There's nothing wrong with open source projects catering to a market, and
there's nothing wrong with running open source software on a proprietary
operating system." - Steve Holden

Everything Python-related you want is probably one or two clicks away in
these pages:

    Python.org's Python Language Website is the traditional
    center of Pythonia
        http://www.python.org
    Notice especially the master FAQ
        http://www.python.org/doc/FAQ.html

    PythonWare complements the digest you're reading with the
    marvelous daily python url

    World-Wide Web articles related to Python.

    are utterly different in their technologies and generally in
    their results.

    For far, FAR more Python reading than any one mind should
    absorb, much of it quite interesting, several pages index
    much of the universe of Pybloggers.
