long list, but yes... I figured next I'll interface it with the Klingon version of lolcode... jk sorta
*nix, windows, and osx in a serious way but also embedded / wee flavors of *nix with OpenWRT leading currently.
I bang rocks and chinchillas together in no particular order to generate to generate chaos... <segment missing, but 'PROFIT!!!' is in it somewhere>... then I QA the resulting code and smile at the beauty and elegance of Python. anyway... I started with Python to install and update components of a DoD system running across various versions of Solaris (and old ones even then... don't ask, it's not good netiquette, jk), Linux, and Windows including security updates and stigs. I didn't get hooked fully then because I didn't get involved into the community. I moved back to my lovely Texas and in my quest to get connected found that Jeff had formed the DFW Pythonistas group (this was 1994 I think) and dove in. I love communities that are passionate and committed to excellence so thoroughly enjoy the Python community and the conventions. (the time period of mid 2008 to Jan 2013 doesn't count... I'm just waiting for the GC to remove it MWUAHAHAHAHA)
A zealot of continual improvement, commitment to excellence and the right tool for the right job, thus I am a zealot of the Python Community!
