Users and the admin

James Bennett describes how to ensure that people can only see/edit things they “own” (i.e., that they created) in the Django admin. Also covers how to automatically set a foreign key to User with request.user.

Introverts of the World, Unite!

Classic article from The Atlantic on introversion in an extroverted world. > Actually, my favorite line is from Waiting for Godot. I can quote it to you exactly: “Don’t talk to me. Don’t speak to me. Stay with me.” > > To me those words sum up the introvert impulse. We love people — we’re not misanthropic for the most part. We just can’t socialize with them all the time. We want to hold their hand or hug them or just sit quietly and read a book with them. > > Extroverts should understand that if someone is being quiet it doesn’t mean they’re having a bad time; it doesn’t mean they’re depressed; it doesn’t mean they’re lonely or need psychiatric help or medication. We need to tell the world who we are. The first step is to understand who we are ourselves, but the second step is to educate extroverts. This is stuff extroverts need to know. They’re driving us crazy. We need to tell them.

annotated rant

Annotated Rant is responsible for the astutely politically incorrect rants like Fuck the South and Fuck Christmas and Fuck Tax Day. Maybe 5% too much profanity, I’m surprised how much these rants make some sense to me.

Joe the Plumber” became a household name after he was mentioned 24 times during a Presidential debate regarding Obama’s plans for taxing small businesses.

Check out his comments about the burden taxation already puts on small businesses.
