I'll be up that-a-way this weekend, for DjangoCon. Getting in tomorrow, and planning an SF get-together with whomever wants to come.
- Phoenix Irish Bar
- Tomorrow (Thursday) night, around 9
I hope to see you there!

My experience so far has been very good. Ran through the first tutorial, then did some fiddling to get BLOBs into PostgreSQL, which has lame BLOB support, requiring some silly escaping of binary strings that is hideously explained in the docs.
But Django has all the right hooks to automate the process in a new Field class, so I can just treat binary data as binary data in Python, throw it at the database and forget about it.
The next fun thing is that this project is partly IBM funded, so there is DBII in my future, and Django doesn't have a native DBII backend, but after Postgres that doesn't look too bad.
I'm very impressed with the docs, and the whole thing behaves remarkably well.
