Simple Python 3 threaded timer in Gtk3.

A quick and dirty timer example. If you need to execute after a period of time use Thread.Timer(). This example uses simple thread and event to start and stop a clock in a Gtk 3 window counting up time in a label. #!/usr/bin/python3 import gi gi.require_version('Gtk', '3.0') from gi.repository import Gtk,Pango,GObject import threading import datetime […]

Python 3 ThreadPoolExecutor in Gtk 3

So I wanted to collect all the theme icons on my Linux machine so I wrote a little app. It is really fast using the ThreadPoolExecutor from futures. I’ve used this at work but never in a Gtk app. Here’s the result from the straight Python 3 code without a GUI. That’s a lot of […]

Get Dynatrace json dumps from threaded Python 3.

Today was a boring day so I was doing anything to make it go faster. I ended up redoing some Python code. It didn’t need to be threaded but I was bored! It’s cold, windy, and dark here. Blah!

Asus AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit WiFi Router (RT-AC68U)

I purchased this router last year and I love it! It’s easy to harden, updates often, and the range is superb! We live in an older home with very thick walls where it was hard getting any reception outside, on the back porch where we have a cam, and upstairs. After installing this beast I […]

Automated Dynatrace API data dumps from PowerShell

There are many ways to do this. I wrote this in Python and now PowerShell. The original was a bat file. PowerShell is easier to work with than bat/cmd f since they can be touchy with quoted strings and html encoding. This PowerShell gets the job done for both v1 and v2 and has a […]

Flowblade 2 Video Editor Video Tutorial made in Flowblade

I decided to give Flowblade Video Editor a go for the hell of it. I got tired of playing Divine Divinity. In the past I had stability issues with Flowblade so I tended to use Pitivi or KDEnlive and avoid it. Since it is now at 2.0 I wanted to give it a try. I […]
