But Minx don't do too bad.

Most of that time is taken up by the HTML sanitiser, which is dynamic (it runs every time, rather than storing the sanitised HTML*) and uses an SGML parser written in Python instead of a C library. I'm looking to improve that, but in the meantime, 0.38 seconds for 1000+ comments on older hardware (2GHz Opteron) without the benefit of Psyco (which had a memory leak) is, as I said, not too bad.

* Because the sanitisation rules are context-sensitive.

Nuke 'Em Til They Glow

OPAL fires up for the first time.

I went to see the old reactor when I was a kid. Back then it was outside Sydney; now not so much, so there was a bit of fuss when they decided to build the replacement at the same site. Thankfully, no-one paid the protestors much attention.

You're the retarded offspring of five monkeys having butt-sex with a fish-squirrel. Congratulations.

My Honey Done Shot Me

I met her in a treehouse wrestlin' gators;
I can still recall the boxer shorts she wore;
She was talkin' in Swahili when she shot me,
and I knew that she was rotten to the core;
My Pooh Bear said I'd stay with her forever;
She said to me man wasn't meant to fly;
But who'd have thought she'd run off with a robot;
I pushed her off the bridge and waved goodbye.
