"This work was done over just five business days (brisk, to say the least). ... Python3 is my language of choice for this sort of thing, so that’s what I used. ... Every 15 seconds a 2nd Upstart job hits the CouchDB view to get the new count ... [In the future] we’d love to do a campaign across multiple social networks, but not all of them provide APIs we can work with. ..."

From 11:00 AM-2:00 PM you have a chance to play a video game on the Champa Street LED screen. Curious to see how this looks/works.

He purchased a Galago UltraPro in February. This laptop has since traveled to 7 countries and over 20,000 miles. When his other desktop failed, he took advantage of the Galago's display port and HDMI out, creating a new work station. And his work station setup looks really cool btw.
I love my Galago UltraPro. Back in February, my previous laptop which I've had for over 3 years, was starting to fail me. I was planning on just getting the latest generation of that model. While at SCALE I had a chance to play with the Galago UltaPro in person. 4xi7 and 16GB RAM with an IPS matte display and Intel Iris Pro 5200. I literally purchased it online on the Galago they had on display. I was sold.
In the last 5 months this laptop has traveled over 20,000 miles and been to 7 countries. It hasn't left my side and has been an amazing companion. When at home I split my time 50/50 between desktop and laptop. That was, until last night.
My desktop, a 4xi7 and 32GB machine has been, failing. Constant lock ups setting back my work and productivity. Yesterday it locked up three times in one day, one while doing an Ubuntu on Air broadcast. In my frustration over the dodgy state of my desktop I realized that the Galago has a display port and HDMI out. Too good to be true. After rounding up some cables and adapters, I've got a new workstation and grew an extra screen.
So I wanted to sincerely thank the entire crew. The laptop is amazing, and for the price, it's one of the best spec'd machines. This is my work, this plays my games, this is my cloud, this laptop is my life!
