I make lots of little programs to make my life a little easier. There’s the 2 line code that reminds me that I’ve made a cup of tea, the 10 lines that strips out everything but numbers from things on my clipboard to the 100 lines that automatically finds the computer name that the user I’m on the phone to is using (which then automatically loads our remote desktop software). But ExamStart was a little different…
In the past week I’ve been learning the Panopto API. It’s code written specifically for interacting with a Panopto server.
I’ve been doing it for 1 week now and have been impressed with how quickly everything seems to be fitting together. The code is only really useful if you have a Panopto server, but if you want to check it out, have a look at the API pages.
I don’t bet often. When I do it’s normally with a Google Spreadsheet, which I put fake money into fake bets. But today is Grand National day, and everyone likes a flutter on Grand National day right?
Probably the naughtiest part of the bet was the fact that I put all of the £10 I had on Southampton winning against Reading, that bet worked out leaving me around £20 to bet on the horses.
Sam Cole, a work colleague, had pointed be towards http://www.olbg.com, but those tips just matched BetFair.
I did a bet on the top 5 favourites, with slightly less money the closer the horses were to being favourite
Betting to place in top 4
|On His Own||4.1||2||8.20|
Top four were
1. Auroras Encore (Ryan Mania) 66-1
2. Cappa Bleu (Paul Moloney) 12-1
3. Teaforthree (Nick Scholfield) 10-1
4. Oscar Time (Sam Waley-Cohen) 66-1
So I won £39.50 + £9 of my bet back.
I also bet On His Own to win, but that didn’t work out.
In all I turned £10 into about £40.
Amy’s had a Raspberry Pi for ages now, but wondering what to do with a third screen on my desk at work, I’ve decided to get one as well.
Mostly to help me in the future when I break it, I’ve been writing the commands used to turn the standard Raspberry Pi installation of Debian (called Raspbian) into the working system on my desk.
More information can be found under Pages: Raspberry Pi
