Using wget to download a page and browse it locally

Run: [carpincho@bender]$ wget -r --convert-links url
What the arguments do:

-r(its the same using --recursive)Turn on recursive retrieving.  The default maximum depth is 5.
-k(its the same using --convert-links)After the download is complete, convert the links in the document to make them suitable for local viewing.This affects not only the visible hyperlinks, but any part of the document that links to external content,such as embedded images, links to style sheets, hyperlinks to non-HTML content, etc.url(obvious :P)Note: You can run it under any Unix based Os or under Mac Os previouly installing it with macports

Alternative to istat menu

MenuMeters is  a set of CPU, memory, disk, and network monitoring tools for Mac OS X.

Although there are numerous other programs which do the same thing, none had quite the feature set I was looking for. Most were windows that sat in a corner or on the desktop, which are inevitably obscured by document windows on a laptop's small screen.

How to Accomplish More by Doing Less

Two people of equal skill work in the same office. For the sake of comparison, let's say both arrive at work at 9 am each day, and leave at 7 pm.

Bill works essentially without stopping, juggling tasks at his desk and running between meetings all day long. He even eats lunch at his desk. Sound familiar?

Nick, by contrast, works intensely for approximately 90 minutes at a stretch, and then takes a 15 minute break before resuming work. At 12:15, he goes out for lunch for 45 minutes, or works out in a nearby gym. At 3 pm, he closes his eyes at his desk and takes a rest. Sometimes it turns into a 15 or 20 minute nap. Finally, between 4:30 and 5, Nick takes a 15 minute walk outside.

Bill spends 10 hours on the job. He begins work at about 80 percent of his capacity, instinctively pacing himself rather than pushing all out, because he knows he's got a long day ahead.

By 1 pm, Bill is feeling some fatigue. He's dropped to 60 percent of his capacity and he's inexorably losing stea…

Show all values in Numpy array

If an array is too large to be printed, (Scipy)NumPy automatically skips the central part of the array and only prints the corners:
>>> print arange(10000) [ 0 1 2 ..., 9997 9998 9999] >>> >>> print arange(10000).reshape(100,100) [[ 0 1 2 ..., 97 98 99] [ 100 101 102 ..., 197 198 199] [ 200 201 202 ..., 297 298 299] ..., [9700 9701 9702 ..., 9797 9798 9799] [9800 9801 9802 ..., 9897 9898 9899] [9900 9901 9902 ..., 9997 9998 9999]]
To disable this behaviour and force NumPy to print the entire array, you can change the printing options using
>>> set_printoptions(threshold='nan') from Numpy Tutorial

The embarrassing way to code

Disclaimer: This post was written by Shane Legg, but in some way, represents exactly the same situation happened to me.
SciPy – the embarrassing way to code

I’ve programmed in many languages before, indeed I’ve spent at least a year working in Basic, C, C++, C#, java, assembler, modula-2, powerhouse and prolog. One thing I’ve never done before is Matlab, well except a few basic exercises for some course I did way back. A couple of years ago I started using python and more recently I’ve started to use the scipy libraries which essentially provide something similar to Matlab. The experience has been unlike anything I’ve coded in before. The development cycle has gone like this:

1) Write the code in python like I would write it in, say, java. I have data stored in some places, then I have algorithms that iterate over these data structures computing stuff, calling methods, changing values and doing various complex things in order to implement the desired algorithm. 10 pages of code, so…
