PyShare needs you

I would like to add branding to PyShare. If you want to help please send 192x192(or bigger) images(licensed CC-BY-SA) to naicik *at* gmail *dot* com with title "PyShare artwork". Artwork should be somehow connected to PyShare(ie: uploading, share of pie, python etc). If you send only one big icon keep in mind that gnome panel commonly have only 24px height so icon should be recognizable in this resolution. Bonus points for wallpapers with branding;)

PL: Zachęcam wszystkich którzy chcą pomóc w rozwoju PyShare o stworzenie dla niego ikonki. Powinna być ona chociaż luźno związana z projektem(wysyłaniem, pythonem, kawałkiem ciastka itd), mieć rozmiar co najmniej 192x192 i być na licencji CC-BY-SA. Pracę proszę wysyłać na naicik *at* gmail *dot* z tytułem "PyShare artwork".

One-liner script to count approximate number of messages in pidgin

You can use this script to counts approximate number of messages from Pidgin history(works only in plain-text archive, not in html). Replace UPPERCASE with appropriate info.

PROTOCOL is protocol you use for a talk, for example irc jabber or gadu-gadu
MY_PROTOCOL_ID is an ID that you use to log in protocol (if you are only user of pidgin there would be only your folder so you can probably auto-complete it by tapping TAB)
FRIEND_PROTOCOL_ID same as MY_PROTOCOL_ID but for your friend
FRIEND_ALIAS alias that you gave to your friend in pidgin(it is shown before any of his messages), or your alias if you are interested in number of your messages
jabber example:
cat .purple/logs/jabber/* | grep -w friendName | wc -l

Of course script have serious drawbacks, because if you have changed someone alias, or use it often in your messages results would be heavy biased, but otherwise should be good enough approximation.

Krótki skrypt zliczający liczbę wiadomości wysłanych przez użytkownika Pidgina
Skrypt pozwala znaleźć przybliżoną liczbę wiadomości które do kogoś wysłaliśmy, lub od kogoś otrzymaliśmy
cat .purple/logs/PROTOKÓŁ/MOJE_ID/ID_PRZYJACIELA/* | grep -w ALIAS_PRZYJACIELA | wc -l

przykład gadu-gadu:
cat .purple/logs/gadu-gadu/1234/4321/* | grep -w Staszek | wc -l

PyShare - Nautilius scripts are only the beginning

PyShare is quite succesfull as a nautilius script, but it can do better. For now we focus on making it simple to share anything that you drop on it (or send by it using nautilius script), but PyShare cannot be ulitmate app good for everything. Wouldn't it be cool to share images directly from f-spot or movies from totem? I think that it would so I plan to make a PyShare minimal package that would have very light depedencies, that could be used as CLI or as library. API would be simple - give PyShare a file, and you will get links back.

sendToImageshack changes name to PyShare

I took extending sendToImageshack as one of my study projects, so now I have some time to hack it. I plan to add support for other hosting sites, so I renamed the project to PyShare. We are doing projects in pairs, so my classmate will help me. He already added GNU GetText to script and started putting uploaded links in SQLite database, but we didn't make it for 0.4.0 release. Development,bugs and translations can be tracked on I'm sorry that this release is English only but I hope that launchpad will approve our translation templates soon.

PyShare name genesis:
Python Sharing - using Python for sharing
Pie Share (phonetically python is pahy-thon and pie is pahy) - piece of cake, sharing easy as pie, Portal reference

World of Goo comes to Linux

2D boy released their game for GNU/Linux operating systems.
What can I say? Not only they made an original game, which is rare nowadays, but made it available for almost any platform(x86) for small price. I won't write another review, just take a look at impressive score at metacritic.What's more this game is DRM free. Check it for yourself: free demo

World of Goo wydane na Linuxa
2D boy wydało swoją nową grę na Linuxa.
Co tu dużo mówić, gra jest naprawdę oryginalna dobra, bez DRM(który szkodzi tylko posiadaczom legalnej kopi) które ku zbiera mnóstwo dobrych recenzji, na pewno warto chociaż zerknąć na darmowe demo.
