Python: Don't Mix Wing IDE and sshfs

Wing IDE Professional is awesome. sshfs is awesome. Massively large codes bases are, well, sometimes you're stuck with them.

But note, Wing IDE, sshfs, and massively large code bases don't mix; it's slooooowwwww. Use NFS instead.

By the way, the ability to run Wing IDE on my Linux laptop in order to debug a process running on a remote FreeBSD server (using stackless Python no less!) is fickin' awesome!

Did your wings IDE work with stackless python ? What's the version of Wings and stackless you were using ? I tried many combinations, stackless python always crack during debug with wings. Any trick you are using to them work together ? Thanks.

I was running the IDE using a normal version of Python, and I was using the debug hooks under stackless. I was using a proprietary version of stackless, so your mileage may vary. I was specifically *not* using Wing IDE on stackless threads or doing any heavy context switching under stackless.

Shannon, thanks for the info. Is
the debug hooks you mentioned replacing tasklet.__call__ as the following ? Thanks again.

def new_call(self, *args, **kwargs):
f = self.tempval
def new_f(old_f, args, kwargs):
print "wrapper.start", args, kwargs
old_f(*args, **kwargs)
print "wrapper.end"
self.tempval = new_f
tasklet.setup(self, f, args, kwargs)

tasklet.__call__ = new_call

The proprietary version of stackless I was using didn't have tasklets, so I guess that means no ;)

I was running this stuff on FreeBSD, so the Wing guys gave me a tarball that contained the debug hooks. It was called wingide-debugger, or something like that.

Ubuntu 20.04 on a 2015 15" MacBook Pro

I decided to give Ubuntu 20.04 a try on my 2015 15" MacBook Pro. I didn't actually install it; I just live booted from a USB thumb drive which was enough to try out everything I wanted. In summary, it's not perfect, and issues with my camera would prevent me from switching, but given the right hardware, I think it's a really viable option. The first thing I wanted to try was what would happen if I plugged in a non-HiDPI screen given that my laptop has a HiDPI screen. Without sub-pixel scaling, whatever scale rate I picked for one screen would apply to the other. However, once I turned on sub-pixel scaling, I was able to pick different scale rates for the internal and external displays. That looked ok. I tried plugging in and unplugging multiple times, and it didn't crash. I doubt it'd work with my Thunderbolt display at work, but it worked fine for my HDMI displays at home. I even plugged it into my TV, and it stuck to the 100% scaling I picked for the othe

Drawing Sierpinski's Triangle in Minecraft Using Python

In his keynote at PyCon, Eben Upton, the Executive Director of the Rasberry Pi Foundation, mentioned that not only has Minecraft been ported to the Rasberry Pi, but you can even control it with Python . Since four of my kids are avid Minecraft fans, I figured this might be a good time to teach them to program using Python. So I started yesterday with the goal of programming something cool for Minecraft and then showing it off at the San Francisco Python Meetup in the evening. The first problem that I faced was that I didn't have a Rasberry Pi. You can't hack Minecraft by just installing the Minecraft client. Speaking of which, I didn't have the Minecraft client installed either ;) My kids always play it on their Nexus 7s. I found an open source Minecraft server called Bukkit that "provides the means to extend the popular Minecraft multiplayer server." Then I found a plugin called RaspberryJuice that implements a subset of the Minecraft Pi modding API for B

Creating Windows 10 Boot Media for a Lenovo Thinkpad T410 Using Only a Mac and a Linux Machine

TL;DR: Giovanni and I struggled trying to get Windows 10 installed on the Lenovo Thinkpad T410. We struggled a lot trying to create the installation media because we only had a Mac and a Linux machine to work with. Everytime we tried to boot the USB thumb drive, it just showed us a blinking cursor. At the end, we finally realized that Windows 10 wasn't supported on this laptop :-/ I've heard that it took Thomas Edison 100 tries to figure out the right material to use as a lightbulb filament. Well, I'm no Thomas Edison, but I thought it might be noteworthy to document our attempts at getting it to boot off a USB thumb drive: Download the ISO. Attempt 1: Use Etcher. Etcher says it doesn't work for Windows. Attempt 2: Use Boot Camp Assistant. It doesn't have that feature anymore. Attempt 3: Use Disk Utility on a Mac. Erase a USB thumb drive: Format: ExFAT Scheme: GUID Partition Map Mount the ISO. Copy everything from
