(inspired by a thread on the psf-members list about Python certification)
Those who know me know I am no fan of the programmer certification industry
and I agree that your typical certificate arrangement, e.g. to show HR to get
that box checked in your candidate file, so a company can skip responsibility
in vetting a candidate, is un-Pythonic. However, I do think we need a good
answer to the engineering manager or team leader who asks, "how do I know this
person knows Python?", and to the candidate who thinks, "I believe I'm good at

Brain trust -- I need advice on the most straightforward way of adapting
an existing program for parallel operation on two cores of a processor.
(I'm using IVF 11.1.)
This code creates a dll that is called by an executable (originally
written in C) to allow real-time listening to an DSP-based audio
processor written in Fortran. This is prototype code for algorithm
development; the algorithms will eventually be ported to dedicated DSP
chips and written in assembler.
At the moment, the basic structure of the Fortran code is as follows:

Hello again Everyone,
I spent a small amount of time recently writing a program that "blinks"
text. I did it by first having a user input a string,
sys.stdout.write-ing the string, then backing up judging by the number of
characters the string has, re-stdout's over it with blank spaces (judged
again by it's character count), and then backs up again in a never ending
while loop. It keeps each blink .5 seconds spaced as well, and all in the

As a learning exercise I'm goofing around with ruby's fork within a C
I've posted my current testing code here: http://pastie.org/591998
It seems to give me the output I was expecting however, it waits the
entire 10 seconds before it proceeds to the next fork call.
I thought maybe sleep is somehow blocking or there are likely other
things I don't really understand.
Can anyone give me any ideas?
I'm using ruby 1.9.
The goal is to launch ruby processes from this C program.
Thanks for any help you might provide.

I am developing some educational software. One of the applications

For the word "capital", for example, the human would record something
like, "Capital. What is the capital of North Dakota? Capital."
I would like to look into storing that text in the database and having
some speech synthesis program speak it to the user. It would be a nice
feature if the user could select from several voices (at least male or

I'd like to know how to get some kstats with mdb (or anything else) from a

it needs to be more specific, then:

it's not a problem and opengl/cg will share these semantics and fields... if
