Microserfs, Revisted

Rex Sorgatz:

After moving to Seattle a month ago to work on the campus depicted in the novel, I returned to the same book that many years ago intrigued this Midwestern twenty-something, to see how the world (and my perspective on it) has changed.

Universal MacPython

Bob Ippolito and Ronald Oussoren have completed a Universal build of Python 2.4.3. Since Python, like most open-source projects, doesn’t use Xcode this was considerably more work than clicking a checkbox. Thanks, guys.

Pystones isn’t a great benchmark, but in this case it shows that a Core Duo is about 25% faster than two G5s at the same GHz.
