You could drop one of the "as a result" (or use a similar but not same construction) ;)

Bye bye Bilbao... This was the view from the rooftop terrace. I love how Google Photos automatically put my photos together as a panorama.

For all your plotting needs! This adds new color palettes and plotting functions to the already excellent Matplotlib. Thanks to +Jonas Brunsgaard for the link.

First cool thing found at #EuroPython: Flowy, a task scheduling framework that deduces the DAG dynamically from the data flow between tasks. This would have been very helpful when I was writing VIFF many years ago :-)
Flowy Docs¶. Flowy is a library for building and running distributed, asynchronous workflows built on top different backends (such as Amazon's SWF). Flowy deals away with the spaghetti code associated with orchestrating complex workflows. It is ideal for applications that have to deal with ...

I especially liked this part: So, after you have been breached—and you will be breached—you will know about it sooner [...]
This week in Washington, there have been a lot of calls for the resignation of Katherine Archuleta, the Director of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM).

While being away for #EuroPython , my server at home has got a corruption on the filesystem serving my /home. This means that I cannot easily check my personal mail at the moment. If you've sent me mail in the last week, please be patient since it will take some days before I'm back and can repair this. The mail shouldn't be lost, just queued on external mail servers until I fetch it.

The error I see in the log files looks like the error reported in the linked bug. I'm running a RAID-1 (mirror) on top of two SSD drives. The RAID array is still up and reports no errors. But still, the filesystem somehow managed to get itself into a corrupted state... :-(

Is the Ext4 filesystem not the most trusted and stable filesystem out there? Is there something else I could use instead?
I started noticing ext4-fs errors in my dmesg output, they look like this: EXT4-fs error (device sda2): ext4_ext_check_inode:428: inode #3760218: comm dropbox: bad header/extent: invalid magic - magic 0, entries 0, max 0(0), depth 0(0) EXT4-fs error (device sda2): ext4_ext_check_inode:428: inode ...

This restaurant is well worth a visit. They serve traditional Swiss food, but with some modern twists. We had the crespelle (crepes) with leek and potatoes. Sbrinz cheese on the top makes this a delicious treat! The cordon bleu was very good as well.

Stepping into the restaurant felt like stepping out of Zurich and into the Middle East. The decoration is exotic and more than half of the guests were from the Middle Eastern region. That's exactly what you hope to see when visiting an ethnic restaurant! The food was delicious. We had the mixed starters with a mixed grill. When we tried to order two types of meat with the starter we were politely told by the waitress that it was too much — and she was right! Seven mezes and the mixed grill was more than enough for the two of us. That's great customer service!

Nice pizzas with a thin dough. The tiramisu was delicious.

Good food, but we felt it was quite overpriced.
