Hi Vegard, and welcome!  I'm not a systems programmer, but often simply 
lurk on the discussions. And already, I've learned quite a bit from the 
smart folks around here!  They're all smart and good people.

Oh, and also, I'm using python myself for side projects too. For 
crafting rapid prototypes I've never been as productive as I am now; i 
just love it as a language!

Once again, welcome!

Best regards,
Mauricio ("mxu") Uribe
