Only constant of the FIFA World Cup 2010: Poor Refereeing!

Just a short comment this time

The USA (the "stolen" goal), Mexico (vs Argentina - the ultra clear unmarked off-side), England (vs Germany - another stolen goal!), and Portugal (vs Spain - the WTF red card) all suffered from the worst FIFA referees in years... 

I think in neither case was the poor refereeing decisions decisive for the matches’ final results (except probably with the USA) but taking morals into consideration they might very well have been. ..Mexico and England most notably, lost their patience soon in the game and ended up being trampled upon... And maybe, just maybe, that extra man lost to Portugal could have produced a tie.

Whatever... FU FIFA!!!

PS: Plus the damn FIFA official site videos are mega-slow to load, tonight they're not even working! Lets not buy their products, such as the following games:

  1. Argentina: se lo merecen! Perdieron 4:0 contra Alemania. Ni gol de dignidad tuvieon ja! Al menos México metió 1. Argentina no sabe ganar sin mal arbitraje. Son buenos, mejores que México, pero demasiado tramposos. Lo siento no están a la altura. Gracias Alemania :)

sqlalchemy ProgrammingError can't adapt type numpy.float64 - Python troubleshooting

Are you getting a

sqlalchemy.exc.ProgrammingError: (ProgrammingError) can't adapt type 'numpy.float64'
???

It's because psycopg (psycopg2) - which is used inherently by SQL Alchemy but if you're just dealing directly with alchemy you might not know this - has no idea how to make the numpy.core.numerictypes.float64 (complete type path: another thing they don't tell you) a string for SQL querying.

Simple solution, add:

# solution by Jorge Orpinel found at rehalcon.blogspotcom
import numpy
from psycopg2.extensions import register_adapter, AsIs
def addapt_numpy_float64(numpy_float64):
return AsIs(numpy_float64)
register_adapter(numpy.float64, addapt_numpy_float64)
somewhere in the program.

I don't git it.

A lot of people praise git. I liked it at first, now I don't geet it.

Some weird stuff I've found in git, in no particular order:

You can pretend to be anyone. Just change your [user] name and email in .git/config and commit away. As long as when you push you use valid credentials, the commits will be recorded as from someone else. (At least this is possible on GitHub, I know git doesn't implement any specific user access control.)
* I guess you could try to enforce signing commits but as anything besides the basics, that gets pretty complicated on git.Steep learning curve that keeps getting steeper. Ok: git init, git add, git rm -r, git commit -am, git remote add, git fetch, git merge -ff, git push and pull -u of course, git checkout -b, git reset --mixed, git revert HEAD ... Those are just some of the basics... Ever tried to incorporate git subtree pull -P prefix --squash > into your workflow? I have, it's not fun (keep reading).Its super complicated to collaborate…

Dockerize your Django App (for local development on macOS)

I'm writing this guide on how to containerize an existing (simple) Python Django App into Docker for local development since this is how I learned to to develop with Docker, seeing that the existing django images and guides seem to focus on new projects.

For more complete (production-level) stack guides you can refer to Real Python's Django Development with Docker Compose and Machine or transposedmessenger's Deploying Cookiecutter-Django with Docker-Compose.

Pre-requisitesAn existing Django app which you can run locally (directly or in Virtualenv). We will run the local dev server with manage.py runserver.A requirements.txt file with the app dependencies, as is standard for Python projects; including MySQL-python.Working local MySQL server and existing database. (This guide could easily be adapted for other SQL engines such as Postgres.)Install Docker. You can see Docker as a virtual machine running Linux on top of your OS ("the host"), which in turn can run con…
