The Python Ministry of Silly Scripting

I started programming Python about 2001. I distinctly remember reading the tutorial in an afternoon and being blown away at how easy it all was. You know: I come from a background of assembler hacking in the 80s, where macro assemblers where top of the league. For me, for many years, C/C++ felt like easy. Little did I know!

There are tons of articles tagged Python all over this place, but note that some of them are really old, I am talking Python 2.1 old. Python 2.3 is another version I got stuck on for many years (until 2008, I would say). And there is precious little Python 3 stuff here: put me on the wall of shame, I don't care!
