calendar, logger, pyblosxom!

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

I re-wrote my calendar utility (which tells me what my schedule looks like when I log in) in Python. This is good because I haven't touched Perl in some time and I wanted to add some other formats to it (like handling "second thursday" and "*/15") and I wasn't looking forward to figuring out what I wrote many years ago.

I also re-wrote my logger at work. It's not really a logger--it's more of a log extrapolator. It takes all these fun bits and puts them in places where I can glance over them quickly and guess at what happened rather than reading all the gory details and know enough to write a thesis.

Then I wanted to add a calendar to pyblosxom. So I adjusted the code to handle drop-in plugins and threw together a pycalendar thingy. It's not great but it works and it's not half-bad for an hour of coding.
