Everything Python-related you want is probably one or two clicks away in
these pages:

    Python.org's Python Language Website is the traditional
    center of Pythonia
    Notice especially the master FAQ

    PythonWare complements the digest you're reading with the
    marvelous daily python url
    Mygale is a news-gathering webcrawler that specializes in (new)
    World-Wide Web articles related to Python.
