Just as I was settling down to work this morning I heard a scream from my wife.
She had just walked in after dropping our daughter at school, and she closed the front door to find a snake just inside it.
I killed it by bashing it with a a plastic rod of some sort. I am still not completely sure what it was, but I think it was venemous - probably a krait.
Having dealt with the snake, I went back to the site I am developing - in Python.
