Finally, I regain my Internet connection…. Thanks to my husband. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yup, I’m back online…. It’s rather queer though, I feel like exclaiming, “I’m alive!!!” ๐Ÿ˜›

Anyway, alhamdulillah….

Installing Beautiful Soup

(I was originally intending to write, “OMG, Python is so wonderful!”. But then I came to. :-D)

I wanted to install Beautiful Soup, a module in Python for parsing HTML. There was no quite explicit step-by-step guide on how to do it, just that I should put the file (which file? BeautifulSoup3.0.7a.py?) in Python library or in my working directory. I decided to put it in C:\Python26\Lib\, since it was where urllib2 (another Python module) was. Doing this in the Python interpreter:

>>> from BeautifulSoup import BeautifulSoup


Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 1, in
from BeautifulSoup import BeautifulSoup
ImportError: No module named BeautifulSoup

so I decided to try putting it in C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages, since it was where non-bundle Python modules are to be stored, according to several websites. (I had Python Image Library there.) But it just didn’t work, again.

I didn’t remember having any such problem when my OS was Ubuntu…. Oh yes, it was because there was ‘easy-install’. Easy it was, indeed.

So I thought, maybe because the name of the file was not BeautifuSoup.py, but rather, BeautifulSoup3.0.7a.py. I decided to truncate the version part of the name, and performing >>> from BeautifulSoup import BeautifulSoup again.

Guess what? It worked! (At least, no more error message. ๐Ÿ™‚ )

If it does indeed work, then no wonder that there is no explicit how-to for installing BeautifulSoup. It *is* as easy as that.

However, I notice that in the C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages folder there is now a compiled BeautifulSoup file. Could it be that if I run the BeautifulSoup3.0.7a first, effecting in the creation of a compilation of Beautiful Soup, I don’t need to truncate the file’s name? What method would be ‘right’? Is it both?

I Think That It is Wonderful

One of my favourites from Sesame Street. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sesame Street : I Think That It Is Wonderful

Big Bird: I think that it is wonderful
To wake up with the sun
When it has just begun
To shine
Hello, bright morning sun

The Count: I think that it is wonderful
To hear the waking street
As all those busy feet
Go by
Hello, Sesame Street

Cookie Monster: Me think that it is wonderful
To wake up wanting food
To be in hungry mood
Is swell
[Don’t worry, my tummy stop growling after me have breakfast]
Hello, food food food food!

Prairie Dawn: I think that it is wonderful
To stretch from head to heels
When I get up it feels
Just right
Hello, knees, toes, and heels

Grover: I think that it is wonderful
To scrub each part of me
To make sure I will be
All clean
Hello, clean, spiffy me

Ernie: I think that it is wonderful
That I can see a star
When it’s so very far
Good night, faraway star

Bert: I think that it is wonderful
That I can hear birds sing
When outside everything
Is still
Good night, bird on the wing

Cookie Monster: Me think that it is wonderful
To eat my food all up
Especially at sup-
[Or lunch time or breakfast time.
It not matter]
Night, night, delicious food

Prairie Dawn: I think that it is wonderful
That I can smell a rose
I’m so glad that my nose
Knows how
Good night, sweet-smelling rose

Herry Monster: I think that it is wonderful
To hug my Teddy bear
It doesn’t matter where
We are
Sleep tight, Teddy, my bear

(Split screen; all five characters sing their respective verses as a round, with the third line of each verse trailing at the end in order. Cut to each character in bed; this sequence is repeated twice:)

Ernie: Good night, faraway star

Bert: Good night, bird on the wing

Cookie: (in bed with a few cookies–how the heck will he sleep?!): Good night, delicious food

Prairie: Good night, sweet-smelling rose

Herry: Good night, Teddy, my bear

All: Good night, good night, good night

What a blessing it is, that man can forget.

Today, I wish I would forget, sooner than I usually do.

These Troubles Won’t Last Forever

A simple, yet beautiful poetry:

โ€œYour kindness for weakness I never mistook
I worried you often, yet you understood
That life is so fleeting, these troubles wonโ€™t last

I found it on this blog page:

The blog entry was about the struggle of a man to keep the house of his dreams. Guess what, the wonderful home was made out of a cave!

As I searched for the writer of the poetry, it turned out that it was an excerpt from a song – ‘Forever’, by Dropkick Murphys. The (live) accoustic version can be listened to here:

I Miss You…

Oh, how I miss you!
With you, everything seems saner.
Together, we would laugh off our difficulties. Through our girls chats or silly nothings, we hush them away.

Though troubles seem ever near; but, hey,
it’s not a matter of them being there after all. It’s how we face them.

I would often silently worry that you would go desperate; but you had always been brave. Thank you dear, you have inspired me to be brave myself.

Oh, how I miss you….

(And, oh, how I rambled!:p)

Kecewa… ah, aku kecewa.

(Come to think of it, ‘kecewa’ is a rather funny sounding word. :-p
But I still am dissappointed, though.)
