Python: Wunderground Todays Weather to Email SMS to Phone

wunderground

I could see somebody setting this as a cron task to send every morning so when you wake up, you get the current weather as a text message. 

I am about to set it up. 

Enjoy

Python – Cell Phone Number Pad Input

Here is the first version of a little python program I made that will translate input from a cellphone text pad or a number pad to text.
UPDATE: VERSION 2
It’s pretty darn simple.

It would go perfect with this:

SSH/SCP/SFTP I love them all.

ssh_binary_packet_alt_sm.jpg
I pretty much use ssh for everything. I use it mostly to connect to my home/web/this server and use it as an interface. The best program to use alongside ssh is screen.

To install both ssh and screen, you may do this:

  1. sudo apt-get install ssh
  2. sudo apt-get install screen

If I were good with words, I would write a poem for ssh. But alas, I am not. So, you get the first page from the Wikipedia Entry.

Secure Shell or SSH is a network protocol that allows data to be exchanged over a secure channel between two computers. Encryption provides confidentiality and integrity of data. SSH uses public-key cryptography to authenticate the remote computer and allow the remote computer to authenticate the user, if necessary.

Here are a few of the best SSH/SCP commands EVER:

  1. ssh server.com
  1. scp server.com:./ /home/local/downloadhere/
    Popular/Best SSH/SCP/Clients (mostly for windows, because linux usually already has tools built in.):

  • WinSCP
  • Putty
  • gFTP
  • the normal commands that come with Linux(ssh, scp)

Facebot – My Facebook Robot

facebot

I have written a new program. It’s called facebot. This program takes the public RSS feed from many people and converts it into a visual display of the relationships on facebook.

Learning Python

I just checked UPS tracking for a book I ordered. IT HAS ARRIVED!!!

Learning Python, I hope, will be the first stepping stone to me becoming a more well rounded programmer. I have started to have interest in Python(cool name) because of Ubuntu and OLPC(One Laptop Per Child). Both of these projects aim to help the world, and they depend on Python. I would love to be able to write a great application that would easily work for kids of developing countries , and/or on my operating system of choice, Ubuntu(or any Linux).

I decided to choose Python over Perl (I bought “Learning Perl” about a year ago). Creating GUIs in Python seems more intuitive, and I prefer object oriented programming(I don’t think Perl is) .

Python over Java : I wanted something more nerdy and that could integrate with UNIX better.

Python over C++: C++ is much to hard. Just compare the list structure in both languages. Also, DB work will be easier (I hope :))

So, while I’m stuck away from home until tomorrow, my book will sit on my front porch. I can not wait to get home and rip it open. :)~

Comments about “Learning Perl”

The Perl book was excellently written, and the authors deserve awards for how easy it was to read. I got through most of the book in 2 days. It just so happens that the two days had about 11 months in-between. Because the book was so good, it almost makes me feel bad about deserting Perl, but it must happen.
