html_options for rails select tag

I had a select tag that I wanted to mess with a little to apply some styles etc. to. The select tag has an html_options hash and I was trying to use that. My initial attempt was

select('history', 'sel', history_list, html_options => {:class => 'historyselect'}) WRONG

This is not python, and even though the rails docs setout the syntax as:

select(object, method, choices, options = {}, html_options = {})

ruby can not accept keyword arguments. Only positional, so you have to do:

select('history', 'sel', history_list, {}, {:class => 'historyselect'})

The empty braces signify the empty 'options' argument, and the next set of braces signify the html_options hash

Flowing text in inkscape (Poster making)

You can flow text into arbitrary shapes in inkscape. (From a hint here).

You simply create a text box, type your text into it, create a frame with some drawing tool, select both the text box and the frame (click and shift) and then go to text->flow into frame.

UPDATE:

The omnipresent anonymous asked:
Trying to enter sentence so that text forms the number three...any ideas?
The solution:
Type '3' using the text toolConvert to path using object->pathSize as necessaryRemove fillUngroupType in actual text in new text boxSelect the text and the '3' pathFlow the text

Drawing circles using matplotlib

Use the pylab.Circle command

import pylab #Imports matplotlib and a host of other useful modules cir1 = pylab.Circle((0,0), radius=0.75, fc='y') #Creates a patch that looks like a circle (fc= face color) cir2 = pylab.Circle((.5,.5), radius=0.25, alpha =.2, fc='b') #Repeat (alpha=.2 means make it very translucent) ax = pylab.axes(aspect=1) #Creates empty axes (aspect=1 means scale things so that circles look like circles) ax.add_patch(cir1) #Grab the current axes, add the patch to it ax.add_patch(cir2) #Repeat pylab.show()
