July 28, 2023 — R.I.P. Tinkerer, welcome ABlog
January 21, 2022 — Finally updated software page
No, not the software itself, that’s still all Python 2. But I finally fixed the links, (long) after Bitbucket stopped hosting Mercurial repositories, from the project pages at Bitbucket. It’s all back to self hosted source archives again.
October 03, 2018 — Digits int() doesn’t dig
Some time ago I wrote in More Than Just ASCII Digits about all the unicode characters Python’s int() function converts to numbers.

Move the mouse over the square below and try to catch the blue dot with the red one.
March 08, 2016 — More Than Just ASCII Digits
Python’s int() converts more than just ASCII digits. It also converts decimal digits from other scripts.
April 07, 2015 — summer.py version 0.0.2
A software I use from time to time but a source code I haven’t touched for almost ten years, except for changing some small things when moving from a private Subversion repository to a public Mercurial one hosted at Bitbucket.
August 19, 2014 — PySensors now under LGPL
I’ve got an email asking why PySensors, a Python binding to libsensors, is released under the GPL. It was because it was written to use the two latest libsensors APIs (3 and 4) and the shared library for the next to last API version is GPL licensed.
April 29, 2014 — rtar.py version 0.4.0
More than nine years passed since I touched the source code of this tool. I still use it on a regular basis and needed/wanted LZMA compression as this has found its way into GNU tar for some time now.
