wish me luck!
EDIT: so. this installation has been Really Hard. finally, having installed wsig, virtualenv, and virtualenvwrapper, I finally installed pip to handle python-related downloads, and while muddling yet again (really – for like the tenth time over the last couple days) through trying to just download django, my friend suggested, “well, why not just sudo pip install django?” HA! beautiful! so that worked, immediately, and now I have django on my linux box. woo-hoo!
now to USE it, to make a django-structured (probably wrong terminology) personal site, to showcase my ~tAlEnTs~! aaaahhhh
