Run IPython notebook on remote server

This comes in very useful if you want to run your notebook on a remote machine (e.g. your data is on that machine, or the machine is a lot faster than your own). From hints here.
  1. Start ipython notebook on remote machine: ipython notebook --pylab inline --no-browser --port=7000 
  2. Setup tunneling on local machine: ssh -N -f -L localhost:7000:localhost:7000 login@the.remote.machine 
  3. Open up localhost:7000 on your browser

  1. Why is step #2 necessary? Can't one just access the remote server at http://the.remote.machine:7000/ directly? Isn't this too much trouble for the client?

  2. I'm not an expert on this aspect, but I believe you don't want to expose the port directly for security reasons. Hence the need for a tunnel.

Python: Multiprocessing: passing multiple arguments to a function

Write a wrapper function to unpack the arguments before calling the real function. Lambda won't work, for some strange un-Pythonic reason.


import multiprocessing as mp def myfun(a,b): print a + b def mf_wrap(args): return myfun(*args) p = mp.Pool(4) fl = [(a,b) for a in range(3) for b in range(2)] #mf_wrap = lambda args: myfun(*args) -> this sucker, though more pythonic and compact, won't work p.map(mf_wrap, fl)

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
