Instant noodles + Miso + some stuff from freezer = yum3

Something off-topic once a while.

Went experimenting with the microwave oven just now, wondering if I can make something more tasty than a plain instant noodle. Went through the freezer and thrown in some stuff, and it turned out great!.

Maybe someone want to try it out, here's the recipe.

1 packet Instant Noodle (curry flavour)
1 frozen crab stick
some frozen vegetables (just pick how much u like, I simply grab once and throw)
some miso paste (2 tablespoon or so)
some margarine (1/2 teaspoon or so)

Boil water and put it into a microwave safe bowl. Take out the frozen stuff from the freezer, wash it and throw them into the hot water. Throw in the miso paste and margarine too. Open up the instant noodle, and put the soup stock into the bowl.

Put the bowl into the microwave oven, and heat it up until its boiling for 30seconds or so. Stir. Put in the noodle, restart microwave for 2 minutes. Eat :P.

The miso paste gave some nice texture and improved the taste of the soup. The margarine for some oily taste. The vege and crab stick are simply some garnish.

Off to enjoy da late-night menu~ :D~ :D~

Adding simple popup to Plone frontpage

Here is a little guide for those who want to add a simple popup to the Plone frontpage for some purpose (eg: announcements, advertisements, etc).

Create a basic html file containing the content you want to appear in the popup. Upload it into $PLONE_SITE/portal_skins/custom (as Page Template) and for the sake of this example, name it popup.html

Afterward, create a Javascript file with your Pop-Up loader script. For example , this script:

function popup(mylink, windowname)
if (! window.focus)return true;
var href;
if (typeof(mylink) == 'string')
href=mylink.href;, windowname, 'width=220,height=400,scrollbars=no');
return false;

popup('popup.html', 'My Popup');

Also upload this file into $PLONE_SITE/portal_skins/custom (as Page Template too). For this example, name it as popup.js

Afterward, in $PLONE_SITE/portal_javascripts , add popup.js as a new script into portal_javascripts…

Tee'ing Python subprocess.Popen output

A little hack for python coders out there who wanted to have a functionality similar to the unix's tee command for redirecting output to multiple places.

import sys
from subprocess import Popen,PIPE
p = Popen(['put','command','and','arguments','here'],stdout=PIPE)

while True:
o = p.stdout.readline()
if o == '' and p.poll() != None: break
# the 'o' variable stores a line from the command's stdout
# do anything u wish with the 'o' variable here
# this loop will break once theres a blank output
# from stdout and the subprocess have ended

HOWTO: Mirroring Yum repositories using Yum-Utils

As promised before in one of my previous post, a Howto on how to mirror and manage yum repositories using some of the utilities in yum-utils.

The first step is, well, of course, is to get yum-utils from fedora repository
yum install yum-utils

Reposync is a utility for mirroring and synchronizing local copy of a yum/rpmmetadata repository.

This utility is very useful if you wanted to make a yum repository mirror. Before this, I used "wget -R -np -N" but this method is a little bit tedious and it doesnt work with repos that didn't use directory listing. Plus, it also download together additional site stuff that I don't need/want and it doesn't verify checksum of the downloaded packages.

Mirroring a repo using this utility is easy, just execute this command
reposync -r <repoid> -a <arch> -n
and the repo will be mirrored in a folder with the same name of the repoid in the directory you executed the command. Eg: you executed the command in /mnt/storage/mi…
