  • Hello all,

       I have a few announcements to make:

    I got a job, and I am moving to virginia (from mass)!

    I am going down sometime in the next two weeks,
    and once I make the move, I do not know how long it will take me to get up and running again (It could be just a few days, it could be more than a month).  I need to find a place to live, negotiate internet access, and all of that fun stuff.

    While it is a programming job, it should not affect my work on on drpython at all (save the fact that I will have a job on top of my other projects (philosophy with children, rhetoric, etc), so I might have less time to spend.  But then, It really does not take me long to code, so any such effect would likely be minimal).

    I will be working for the fine folks at siteworx (www.siteworx.com), doing zopey kind of things.

    *****************

    Also, the Toronto folks have been making some amazing progress (and are starting in on the debugger!!).  To this end, I have decided it would be wise to limit core development to bugfixes for a while (although some feature requests are often bugs with drpy, so those would count too).

    This will make integrating code a lot easier when they finish their project.

    Also, it means I can focus effort on making drpython as stable an ide as I can, and do some work with plugins
    (updating old ones, and finally getting to some neat ideas I've had for a bit, like MouseGesture support for drpy).

    In terms of new features or major overhauls, we could brainstorm a bit, and be ready to make the jump when the northerners are finished.  ( :)  I'll be a southerner by then ).

    ****************

    So for a bit, I will be on quasi hiatus, as I have lots of stuff to do to prepare.  I will try to remember to post when I actually leave (but I have a terrible memory).

    The decision on the core is not related to my moving (that only means the next few weeks I will be much busier than normal, and for a bit I will be completely offline), so it is certainly up for discussion.

    Best,
    Dan

     
    • Good luck for your move, Dan! Hope you can adjust to the new environment soon. Thanks for your wonderful work so far.

       
    • Second; good luck for your pull away!

      Hope all goes well and congratulations

       
    • It doesn't look like I will get to anything before the move, so here's the "I'm moving" post.

      I'll be back once I'm settled in a new place with internet.
