Henry St & Grand St citibike station is gone.

Since citibike has no publishing about such changes and since I already called to find out what had happened to the Henry Street & Grand Street station in the Lower East Side (LES) of Manhattan, I'm writing this blog post.

Apparently and according to the representative that answered my call to 1-855-BIKE-311 (although she initially just confirmed the station was removed, dah - without explanation until I insisted) the station was removed due to a nearby construction which should last up to 6 weeks. Damn, goodbye to a convenient early summer for me (that station was in front of my building).

UPDATE:

I also emailed and I was amazed by their hand-wash response:

Where do you publish information on removing stations, the reason and for how long? I'm a member (ID *****) and want to have this information before hand, not just walk to the location and find no station in sight...

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.

For a more complete reference of the problem see http://initd.org/psycopg/docs/advanced.html#adapting-new-python-types-to-sql-syntax

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…

Mapa del Metrobus de la Ciudad de México

Update: Por fin el Gobierno hizo su chamba luego de años de que mi mapa fuera el único en Google Maps. Hoy (05-11-2013) me percaté que en www.metrobus.df.gob.mx/mapa.html (solo con "www"...) se puede apreciar ya este mapa (zoom centrado en centro de la ciudad):

Para quien prefiera los iconos que yo utilicé, aquí dejo la última versión que actualicé (hasta línea 4 y proyecto de línea 5): En mi post "Mapa del Metrobus en Google Maps" publiqué el mapa del metrobus en Abril dl 2009. Ahora que hay más estaciones y más líneas, es necsaria esta actualización.
Incluye íneas 1 a 4 (actual a Junio 13 del 2012). La descripción de cada estación incluye correspondencias con otras líneas de MB y con el meto.
Además quiciera es incluir el ten ligero, las rutas/paradas del turibus, y algunas rutas de RTP - y tal vez el ten suburbano.
