Richard Jones' Log: Wow, almost a decade
I just saw this announcement on python-list. The original copyright was 1995, from when I was working at the weather bureau. That means I've been doing this Python thing for a decade now. Crikey.
IIRC, I wrote the gdmodule because I wanted some graphing in a HTTPD (old skool NCSA, not Apache ;) stats program I'd written - the first Python program of any size that I'd attempted. PIL didn't exist back then. Hell, this was even before that silly GIF patent crap spawned PNG :)
Update: added some explanatory links as I was politely informed this entry didn't make much sense ;)
