    I won’t be saving links to Delicious any more. Head on over to Pinboard if you want to keep seeing new stuff. All my old links are there too.

    @mdales I’m importing local settings at end of settings.py, but it seems you can’t extend MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES or INSTALLED_APPS in local.

    I so wish there was a way to manage default and local settings in Django that didn’t feel like a hack. I’ve wasted so much time on it.

    Why is Lord Sugar all over the TV speaking about Steve Jobs? It’s like calling Shakin' Stevens in to talk about the death of Elvis. #isad
