I was referred to Data Visualization With Matplotlib and Seaborn on #lobsters today.
So I was running this:
/var/www/jj-web-1-www.jj5.net-sixsigma: file.recurse: - clean: True - user: root - group: root - dir_mode: 755 - file_mode: 644 - source: salt://inst/mediawiki-1.29 - require: - pkg: apache2
And getting an error like this:

The issue was that the source files mentioned weren’t in UTF-8 format. To convert the files I ran, e.g.:
$ iconv -f WINDOWS-1252 -t UTF-8//TRANSLIT < module.audio-video.mpeg.php.bak > module.audio-video.mpeg.php
(Actually I couldn’t get the ‘iconv’ command to work so I edited manually in Vim)
Reading about Vim: reformat a Python file to have 4 space indentations and came up with this:
Doing some research on Peter Norvig (I’m fascinated by the guy and want to know what he thinks) and I found a talk of his: Peter Norvig: What to demand from a Scientific Computing Language. In the talk Peter explains what he wants out of a programming language and why he feels that Python fits the bill.
I watched the whole thing but I think I’ll put it on my TODO list to watch this again one day.
I’m working through Zed Shaw’s Learn Python The Hard Way, and I’m up to exercise 5. Doing the extra credit 3 involved searching online for Python format strings, and I found that there is the old way, which is presumably what Shaw wanted me to find, and also the new way in which a new scheme for string formatting is provided.
