GDAL committer

I'm very excited to be able to say that Frank Warmerdam proposed me for commit access to GDAL and that last week the vote passed. I just made my first commit to the tree acknowledging that I've agreed to follow RFC 3: GDAL Commiter Guidelines. Now I just need to partition some stuff I've done into reasonable commit chunks and go through the process for release at Google.

fink ipython / matplotlib / pylint

A big update to fink packages. I wanted to switch to the new versions... ipython 1.0.0 is gonna be awesome. I use pylint everyday and it's now up to 1.0.0. matplotlib 1.3.0 forced me to remove the macosx backend. Very sad that it requires a framework build. Happy python hacking!

python webbrowser module

This is a web only version of the mac open or linux xdg-open commands:
import webbrowser
I heard about webbrowser via Sorting with Pythonista, which also introduced me to the iOS Pythonista app for the ipad/iphone.
