After recently switching to an intermittent fasting plan, I've been seeking a solution for MyFitnessPal to support different macros on different days. A fellow coworker who's already lost 50lb on an IF plan pointed me to a reddit thread with a MFP custom macro script . It's an excellent little script and macro but I ran into some issues getting it to work. I started by attempting to run the script via OSX on my Macbook but found I had to install the Mechanize extension for Python. No big deal but when I ran the script for the first time, I got a what looked to be an Mechanize error which kind of threw me off. After digging around, I found the fix on another related reddit thread . That fixed the authentication issue but then the script failed again with a similar error related to the 'totalCallories' variable. macbook:site-packages user$ python macros.py Schedule section exists Sunday is: R All configuration options present Logging in Login sent L
Chromecast is totally rock'n! I immediately ordered two Chromecast units last week while watching the livecast during a flight from Detroit to NYC. They were unexpectedly delivered before I made it back home. It's simply incredible how fast the world is changing driven by emerging solutions in mobile, social and cloud computing. Just two years ago, I was thrilled to get wifi on a plane and now its simply amazing to watch and order a newly announced product from a tablet while flying across the country!! After an easy setup, the interesting features announced at the product launch last week such as Chrome tab sharing and multi-device support are quickly living up to the hype. Tab sharing is my hands down favorite feature right now which gets around the many blocking issues of other streaming media solutions. For example, I can now stream Amazon video to the living room TV via Chromecast while editing photos on another virtual desktop via Mission Control on the family iMac.
