We've just bought "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" collector's
edition DVD - this is what DVD was invented for:
- Commentaries by the cast (two of them - one with Gilliam and Jones, the
other with Cleese, Idle and Palin).
- Normal sub-titles plus special sub-titles for people who don't like the
film (taken from Shakespeare's Henry IV, Part III)
- Really special sub-titles so you can read the screenplay and watch the
film at the same time
- 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail in LEGO'
- and a bunch of documentaries, etc.
Yes, it really does have the LEGO version :)
We also got a Goodies compilation which includes episodes from before I
was born up to ones made while I was watching the show. Including Kitten Kong.
Last weekend was spent mostly in the garden. It's now early spring, so
the weather's warming up and the plants are going ape and are generally in
need of some TLC. Oh, and Rachel and I picked out about a couple of dozen
new trees to plant, so they had to go into the ground too.
I'm in terrible shape though, so on Saturday I planned ahead and we went
out for dinner (Shakahari, one of the best vegie restaurants
in Australia) which was yummy, as always. After a night's sleep, I was
reminded just how unfit I really am, so I spent Sunday doing
mostly small cleanup work instead of more weed removal.
Eventually, I stopped that and played with another programming
side-project which I decided needed a GUI. I've previously used PyQt for various things, but
this time I had a potential audience that couldn't be stuffed installing
PyQt. So I tried tkinter. Ugh. Never again. Ugh.
A couple of hours later, I'd used Qt Designer to create five interfaces
and I'd wired most of my existing code into those. Painless! Except now I
need to get my audience to install PyQt, which can be anything but
painless. I can't even get sip to compile on OSX, let alone trying for PyQt
itself. Ah well, it's a good thing I've got Linux too :)
