Dear Lazy Web,
I have a need to be able to write to the MS Windows event log in Python. I must admit I don’t know a lot about Python on Windows. Does anyone have a good short sample they would like to share?
Hugs and kisses,
Ok, so I thought it would be cool to be able to send Google Talk messages to my MythTV box. Can’t be too hard to write a twisted python jabber client can it? Well, after an hour of surfing, I give up. I have the simple jabber client example, but it totally doesn’t work with the Google servers, I suspect because it doesn’t do SSL. I can see one of the twisted.words maintainers filing bugs against the xish stuff too, which I suspect means it’s going to be a while.
A little bit disappointing me thinks.
My first python script involves doing some DNS lookups (for TXT records if that matters), and I am currently working through using the pydns module for this. Is this really the best DNS module to use for python though? For a start, it was last released in May 2002, and the documentation is somewhat sparse…
I’ve just started working through Dive Into Python, so I don’t really have an opinion of the book yet. I did notice that Example 2.1 produces different output on my machine than from the example…
The example says I should get:
It’s interesting that this is exactly the reverse of what the book says I should get. I have no idea why, as I can’t read Python yet, but there you go.
