I've actually made some updates and plan to make more :)
So I’ve written two updates now related to the original script I wrote for this site quite a while back. I want to get my photography sections up and running but feel like I should finish off that first article (or at least then next logical part of it) before I move on to doing something else. I have decided however that my next article is going to be a cleanup article for the original code. I’m going to go over how to shorten it quite a bit and also update it to use the sub process module instead of the spawnlp function which the python docs suggest against using. I can’t for the life of me remember if it was considered bad practise to use at the time of the initial tutorial writing but it was meant as a sort of one off throwaway script that I was going to build on anyway :).
