    Bascule, any idea when there is going to be a official packaged release?
    Nope *shrug*

    Check out http://forum.defcon.org/showpost.php...8&postcount=14 yo!

    Which is why you are developing PDTP. Right?
    Indeed!

    By the way good talk at Defcon. The tent was a little sparsely populated but it was interesting none the less.
    I probably could've drawn more people by doing a presentation on many of the technologies I touched upon in developing PDTP and ones I considered but didn't use such as BEEP or its proprietary Java counterpart JXTA. Maybe a workshop on implementing network servers would've been more interesting.

    I hate the indentation based syntax, especially since they will be moving to 2 or 3 space "tabs" only... WTF? Soon 'indent' output will no longer be valid.

    I also hate the interpreter, but here's hoping they move to Parrot soon.

    Are there any practical applicatios for the language other than the addressbooks and things that I have been making with it so far?
    Like Ruby, Python is being used largely in place of things which were previously implemented as Perl scripts. Then there's BitTorrent, which I consider a ridiculous abuse of the language...

    started a topic So python?

    So python?

    Good afternoon admins, security buffs, and all computer loving individuals. Recenly I picked up the TCP/IP survivors guide, and decided it was time that I got into network security, and computer secuirty in general. I have taken it upon myself to start with Python, and was curious of the general feeling toward the language. I know from the breif bit of working with it that I have completed that it can be rather testy. Are there any practical applicatios for the language other than the addressbooks and things that I have been making with it so far? Thank you all for your time.

    Kenderkin.
Working...
