Free software licenses

I was doing some research about free software licenses as a part of developing ProgClub’s terms and conditions, and found this list of free software licenses from the FSF, and the same list of FSF approved software licenses on Wikipedia. I noticed the cool table sorting facility they have on the Wikipedia page, and wonder if that’s built in to MediaWiki..? It would be cool if it only required a class specification to have it work like that.

Python string formatting

I’m working through Zed Shaw’s Learn Python The Hard Way, and I’m up to exercise 5. Doing the extra credit 3 involved searching online for Python format strings, and I found that there is the old way, which is presumably what Shaw wanted me to find, and also the new way in which a new scheme for string formatting is provided.
