What I got up to over the weekend. Also - I'm changing from this account to rikard@anglerud.com- the account below.
 
I wrote an exponential smoothing generator in #python , and wrote up a little blog entry about it. Code included.

Found in cloudera's hadoop startup scripts:

perl -pi -e 's#{{CMF_CONF_DIR}}#/var/run/cloudera-scm-agent/process/1727-hdfs-NAMENODE#g' /var/run/cloudera-scm-agent/process/1727-hdfs-NAMENODE/topology.py

Yep, that's using perl in place of sed to inject a configuration variable into a python script. I feel dirty just having read that.

I just bumped into Parsley, a PEG parser library for #python  which looks great. So far it seems much easier than any other library I've used. I look forward to using it a bit more.

A while back I mentioned that I'd set up a simple network monitor using my #raspberrypi  , graphite and #python . This is a description (with code) of how it's done, and all in just a few dozen lines of simple code.
I quickly decided I wanted to see how this changed over the course of the day. I really didn't want to try and wait for the problems to occur before getting data about it. What I wanted was to see the problem clearly, highlighted like this: Network latency graph ...

I've attempted to measure how long it takes C, Go, #python   and Scala to go round a loop once, increment a number and print it to the terminal. The results weren't quite what I was expecting.

excellent study :) !
would be great if someone studied how long it takes experienced programmers of the various languages to write similar routines, of different sorts.

Offset by +Benoit Chesneau is an implementation of the Go concurrency model in #python and is one of the most exciting things I've come across in a long while.

Have a look at the examples in the linked git repo and the presentation at https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B2gNkR7hgkIRVFgwSWR4Y2JaZHc/preview?pli=1&forcehl=1&hl=en

This is one of the best little tools I've found in a while - this lets you reconnect interactive sessions like ssh after network dropouts or network changes such as switching between wifi networks.

It's nice - I do like mosh. I should give it another shot - though I no
longer use a laptop, so things have become quite a bit simpler to manage.

Wrote a blog post about how I used Pelican to update my website. Pelican (written in #python ) is a static site generator, which makes it a whole lot easier for me to work with my website contents - it's just a bunch of plain text files.
Now we are being herded into the nineties, which looks like it is going to be a true generation of swine, a decade run by cops with no humor, with dead heroes, and diminished expectations […] at the end of the decade, no one will be sure of anything except that you must obey the rules, ...

Some fantastic imagery captured of the launch platform of Apollo 11, and good commentary about what is going on.
 
The first 5 seconds of Apollo 11, filmed at 500fps with awesome commentary.  I just spent 8 awesome minutes with my 5 year old watching the coolest thing I will see today.

I have high hopes for this python module - it appears to make a whole lot of datetime usage easy. The datetime support in #python   is surprisingly awkward - there are several good modules that do work, but they are in no way as easy as they ought to be.

Python dates are a bit of a pain and you kinda need a cheat sheet in order to maintain any productivity. It could be worse though, both dates and strings in vanilla JavaScript are absolutely lacking.
