Practical and theoretical aspects of software development

Maintenance is no fun

I had fun creating @py3k_update, a twitter account that would send tweets announcing new libraries that are python 3 compatible. More here: https://wilsonericn.wordpress.com/2011/09/06/python-3-library-updates-via-twitter/

But when the page that I was scraping changed format, there was no joy in figuring out what to change to get the updates working accurately. I’ve got other fun and worthwhile things to do, both in programming, and in real life.

So thanks much to the 200+ folks that found @py3k_update worth following, I hope that you appreciated what it did provide, and aren’t too disappointed to see its demise.
