Python on Leopard
31 October 2007
As I haven't seen anyone writing much about the state of Python development on Mac OS X Leopard, here's a quick rundown. Leopard comes with Python 2.5.1 installed (OS X previously came with Python 2.3). And the interactive interpreter is now quite usable out of the box, as it includes the readline stuff you previously had to install by hand.

Last week I posted an entry about the hard drive of my iBook 12" dying. I just noticed a story on Ars Technica that describes exactly the problem I've been seeing.
iBook hard drive dying
16 February 2005
I'm writing this on an iBook whose hard drive is slowly dying. Stuff that involves disk access is dog slow, and the thing often makes buzzing sounds like it's under pain (which it probably is.) I need to get the drive replaced, but anyway I've also placed an order for a new 12" powerbook. Time was ripe for an upgrade.
