I've spent the last few days hacking away on ec2pric.es.
I decided to give CoffeeScript a try, and I must say I am pleasantly surprised by now nice it is. There are some things that I wish it did differently (read: more like python), but overall I think I will continue to use it in my personal projects.

I got fed up with the nose-watch plugin for nosetests running 3 times when I saved a file in vim. So I wrote nose-watcher.

It always worries me when you subscribe from emails from a site, and they display this message.

"Thank you for updating your communication preferences. Please note that it can take up to 10 days for email communication preferences to go into effect."

Either they're processing the requests manually, their database is taking eventual consistency to a whole new level, or their email runs take 10 days to complete.

In true batteries included style, the logging module for python has support for running a TCP server for accepting new logging configuration.

I have yet to come up with a compelling reason as to why this has been included. Are you able to come up with a compelling reason why you would use such a feature?

Found this gem on the unix stackexhange.

xinput --set-prop 'SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad' 'Device Accel Constant Deceleration' 1000000 

I've been looking for something like this for the past 3 weeks, as I have been using an alternative way to disable the mouse movement (setting the touch pad height to 1), however that also disabled all scrolling from the touch pad. This solution however still allows for scrolling and other gestures!
