It seems that Spiros fixed the problem however I've never been in the position of needing a nightly build for python and when I look for one now, I don't find anything.

Although even if I figure out how to fix this (maybe just back my installation up to 2.7.2) my guess is that from a) a previous Django exercise (that I'm trying to double-check with xgoogle and b) the most recent posts above that google is now able to detect programmatic access and doesn't return any results in order to discourage (prevent) programmatic access.

I love to read science books. They make my day and I get ideas for awesome blog posts, such as Busy Beaver, On Functors, Recursive Regular Expressions and many others.
Take a look at my Amazon wish list, if you're curious about what I have planned reading next, and want to surprise me. :)
