Here is my link dump from last night’s meeting of the Central Ohio Python Users Group:
The scheduled presenter, Brian Costlow, didn’t make it. Something about work being more important than a Python meeting. Priorities?
To fill the void, Eric Floehr showed a weather-related web application he has been working on that is built with Django. The app uses HTMLCalendar (Django, calendar – Stack Overflow).
Mark Erbaugh showed the web application he built using web.py. He also uses ReportLab.org to generate PDF files.
I had not run across this before: 29.2. zipimport – Import modules from Zip archives.
Catherine Devlin presented reStructuredText, S5, and Sphinx.

Catherine also mentioned:
PyCon 2010 Atlanta – A Conference for the Python Community
Python Package Index : PyPI, AKA the Cheese Shop
Also discussed was the construction of the COhPy web site:
Code at cohpy — bitbucket.org.
Using Google App Engine.
Finally, I haven’t used decorators in Python (nor in my house) but I’d like to read up on that:
PEP 318 — Decorators for Functions and Methods
