Django Book (beta)

Sure it has been out for a little over a week but it’s still cool. I am anxiously looking forward to Mondays now (something that I have never done before) because that is when the new chapters of the Django Book are published to the beta site. If you don’t know what django is then head over to the official site for the project and check it out. In a nutshell it is one of the top Python based web frameworks out. It was created to build database driven web sites in a hurry. While at the official site check out the list of sites that are django powered.

If you are a django person you might consider creating a screen cast and sending it to the guys at ShowMeDo. Also keep an eye on LAMP Training. Their first video was pretty nice and I am looking forward to seeing more from them in the near future.

Creating a blog with Django (screen cast)

This is the first of what appears to be a series of screen casts by this site. It is nice to watch the development instead of just reading a tutorial. I am hoping to see more from this site in the near future. I have followed about 4 or 5 written tutorials but none with that have been this clear.

Microsoft MSI cleanup utility

I ran into a problem earlier and I wanted to let you know what the solution was in case you see it too. I was trying to uninstall an application onto a machine here and Windows complained about not being able to find the msi file that was used for the install. First I tried the regclean.exe ( look on MajorGeeks.com ) tool from Microsoft and rebooted but that did not help at all. Then I came across miscuu2.exe. This little app once installed lists then stuff that is listed in Add/Remove Programs but it actually works. You fire it up and select the program that is giving you a headache and click Remove. Then install an the new version or just move on with life. I think that if you were to search the registry for the msi in question and removed it then it would have done the same thing but I didn’t think of that until I had already fixed the problem.
