So you want to have a dynamic menu, based on who is logged in, and what they are allowed to do. How do you acheive this? Let me preface this by saying, that this sample is not using the Django admin system, as we had a legacy database with our own security system built in, […]

ReportLab Charts

There was minimal sample code on the wiki page for generating reportlab charts via Django.  I’ve just added sample code there for generating Line Charts, in addition to the already given Bar Chart sample. If anyone is interested in a Pie or Scatter chart sample, let me know and I’ll add that to the wiki […]

It makes no sense to me whatsoever, that Django ( an open source Python web framework ) is going the path of Microsoft, and purposely breaking backwards compatibility in their next release. The project developers plan to completely remove their current web form framework, because “we don’t want to have to support it”. They’ve had […]

Some days, when I’m home at nite, and the dogs are all laying around sleeping, I feel guilty. I feel guilty that they are not out running around enjoying nature. But then I look at them, all well fed, happy, with their feet up the in air, snoring on their backs, and smile. Even though […]

Aquascaping

Well.. I had every intention of re-aquascaping my entire tank today. I filled up two five gallon buckets with water, and removed all loose corals from the tank. I then began working on the left hand side of the tank, moving rock, then proceeding to try and pile it up to cover the overflow. After […]
