Re: Remote shutdown capability

I think it's a pretty common business/institution concern: locking down user roles to minimize risk but also allowing end users to install the tools they need to get work done. There's actually a term for it: principal of least privilege. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Principle_of_least_privilege Sev...

Re: Could you try my clipboard manager and give some feedbac

Wow, didn't think I'd run in to the creator of Shapeshifter here! Comes in handy all the time, and you know where it was the most help? Just a few days ago I was doing some work on my businesses website and I actually chuckled to myself when I realized I don't think I can work on websites/coding wit...

Re: Cold Pizza

I always wished that one of the local restaurants in my town would make pizza the night before and have it cooled and ready for breakfast the following morning. I would love to see a diner with $1 or $2 slices on the menu along side eggs, french toast, etc.

Re: Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy

For those of you in the Northeast, I did spot Sam Adams Oktoberfest just outside of Boston the other day. Always feels like it hits stores earlier and earlier every year...

Re: What's the difference between print and return in Python

There's another fantastic resource for learning Python, if you're interested: search for "Learn Python The Hard Way" by Zed Shaw. It's very popular and comes highly recommended. It assumes no programming experience and the online version is free (dead tree versions are available). Good luck!

Re: Coding: Fleeting Thoughts

I'd have moved to other frameworks if only getting good hosting for them were easy. For small-ish websites that can't afford/don't need a virtual/dedicated server, I've still yet to find a good one. Heroku is one reasonable option. Their free tier works fine for "small-ish" websites. Some...

Re: Food ideas for those that live/cook alone

I'm cooking for one most days of the week and I lean towards salads in the summer and crockpot meals during the cooler months. Having the same meal multiple times in a row has never really bothered me, but I understand most people prefer more variety. One of my favorite tricks to pick up day-old rot...

Re: Playing tones in Python

If you Google "Music for Geeks and Nerds" (I can't post links ATM) someone wrote a book on generating music with Python (with a little bit of math mixed in). I believe the book was recently published - I saw it on the front page of Hacker News a few days ago and was warmly received. Hope t...
