If you hate to read, this is probably not where you want to be. Instead, perhaps I can interest you in a game of Solitaire. For the rest of you, read on, but you should play Solitaire later. On your death bed, I'm telling you, your biggest regret will be not playing more Solitaire. By the way, if you read and comment on every blog, you'll get cake.
There you are, configuring some shiny new django website of yours, and you want to test some of the logging features. And because you're testing in a development environment, you have DEBUG=True in your settings.py file. But the problem is, you're not seeing the admin logging emails you are expecting. So, you check the LOGGING variable in settings.py to see if you missed something. It looks something like this by default:
"Close embrace is impossible. I'm sticking to open."
This is one of many rumors that are known to be untrue, which I still run into online sometimes. It's like one of those emails that's been long-since debunked on snopes.com, but you still see it being forwarded around. Even if Penn & Teller did repeat it on their TV show, or even if Michael Chrichton did put it in one of his books, it hasn't become any more true.
