Pyplate now uses WSGI instead of CGI

Posted Yesterday at 01:09 AM by Pyplate

I've updated Pyplate again. This time the UI hasn't changed much, but I've done a lot of work under the hood. I've added a bunch of fixes which should make Pyplate much more secure.

I've also switched moved away from CGI amd updated Pyplate to use WSGI. This has made a huge difference to the page load time of dynamic pages. Performance with static pages hasn't really changed.

KDE, QT, GTK, TK, all in several versions and with changing variables and whatnot at every version, and even within a single version.

One would think that QT and KDE are more or less the same, but turns out that, at least from outside KDE, one can't fully define the theme settings (or UI font specifically) from KDE's "appearance" settings.

Mexican Solar Still

Posted 07-07-2014 at 05:20 PM by rokytnji

Here in the Desert. Like in Colonias with no fresh drink water.
One needs to think on their feet.
Here is a basic small example on how a Mexican solar still works.

But the Hispanics here build their own gear from scrap like in the 1st video.
