Netbeans 7.0 and Python

As it seems, from the last message on the mailinglist of the python plugin for Netbeans, the project seems to be shut down.

So I think I've to switch over to Eclipse with the pydev-Plugin for my
python editing.

Hopefully there will sometime be a comeback of python support in Netbeans.

VirtualBox 4.0.6 installed on Solaris 11 Express

I've installed VirtualBox 4.0.6 from the download page on the Instance
of Solaris 11 Express. My virtualised XP instance runs without problems.

Only when the System is sent into suspend mode, the running instance must
be closed, because otherwise the system won't not wake up again.

Python Module of the Week - blog

After viewing a video from the Python Conference 2011 about

Hidden Treasures in the Standard Library

I got a valuable hint about the blog "Python module of the week"
written by the speaker Doug Hellmann.

I just viewed some entries, and they describe in a detailed way the
functions in the standard python library.
