Update for Monday, 14 February 2011

  • Happy to see SPARQLWrapper 1.4.2 released, enables rdflib 3.0 goodness in SuRF
  • Was putting together a shell script to resize user-uploaded pictures to few standard sizes with ImageMagick. Picked up few useful shell tips:
    • set -e causes script to exit on first error (non-zero exit code from command). Fail early is good
    • Get the absolute, canonical path of file or directory: CANONICAL=`readlink -e $SOMEPATH`
  • It’s cold around here!
