Excuse my French, but what on earth is going on with this Brand/Ross (Bross?) story?

It was pre-recorded.  Thats “Pre”… “Recorded”… Both of them are famous for their tendency to improvise to a ludicrous and often offensive conclusion; leaving them on their own together in a radio studio late at night was bound to generate a whole host of unbroadcastable material.  Surely that’s why it wasn’t live in the first place?

What a bunch of arse.

Regular expressions

There is a saying that if you decide to solve a problem with regular expressions what you end up with is two problems. To find, then, that Django’s URL dispatch is based entirely on those self same regexes leaves me a little grumpy; they are a right bugger to write and debug, and trying to do anything fancy with them is always a real pain.

And despite how simple I thought my first Django app was, it took me exactly 2 days to find that I was bogged down in regular expressions rather than building features.  Gah.
