The hardest part of being a foster parent is not dealing with the kids but dealing with the fact that you may eventually have to say goodbye.

I'm looking for a cross platform build system for a project I'm working on at work. I'm going to need Linux, Windows, OSX, and probably ios and android. Normally if I were just using Linux I'd write the makefiles by hand. However I need something more and autotools doesn't work too well on Windows.

The options i'm exploring are: CMake, Bakefile, and premake/premake4. Does anyone have opinions about these and which one is better?

These operators have some pretty awesome skills. Playing Jenga with 277 pound wooden pieces and construction heavy equipment?

Want to contribute to the Linux kernel but not sure where to start? The Eudyptula Challenge is a great way to test your programming skills and learn how to participate in the kernel community.

Anyone have any guides/recommendations on how to package python code into an egg for use in a larger project? I'm trying to package some protobuf generated python modules into a namespace and then into an egg for deployment with a tool that uses them.

One issue I have that I'd like to fix is that the generated protobuf python modules (which I generate every time I make just in case they are modified) have the suffix _pb2 on them. If I had a protobuf module called commands.proto I'd like the python to be commands.py instead of commands_pb2.py. This normally would just be a rename however if you have an include directive inside a .proto file it will then have an import included_file_pb2 inside the generate module which references the external module. I could do a sed replacement for _pb2 but I'd rather not have to modify the generated classes every time.

I am looking at using setuptools since most guides I find seem to indicate its better than distutils. Is this still the case?

Just use sed. You're trying to modify the generated python code and go against the _pb2 naming. This is more of a Google/Protocol Buffers problem than a Python problem. You can run custom Python in your setup.py, which means you can call sed or just do the cleanup with Python.

Mike Einziger And Aloe Blacc Perform Avicii's "Wake Me Up" Acoustic

Apparently the song is originally by Aloe Blacc and the Avicii song thats' become popular is  more of a dance remix than an original.
