The effbot is no longer a Python developer

I'm no longer a python developer

A real shame, this. He's been a real contributer to Python. Possible his most high profile contribution is Python's new (at 2.0) unicode regular expression module, which I use every day. (Well, OK, most days.) But this is far from being his only contribution.

I don't see him much on c.l.py any more, either, which is a shame. He's helped me out in the past. I'm not surprised, though - the volume of postings on c.l.py is huge these days.

Oh, and if you are a Python developer and don't yet have The Python Standard Library, I recommend it. When using a new module for the first time, I find a simple example or two a much more effective quick start than the docs, good though they are, and Python Standard Library gives you exactly this.
