90 Free Videos 
It has been quite awhile since I updated the blog. -We have been spending much time growing the Facebook, instead!

Yes, I know I swore-out of FB awhile back... but shortly thereafter I felt inspired to create a group dedicated to Python3 Training.

Python3 Training Group - Click

Now weighing in at over 12,000 members - and growing by 1000 new students each month - I guess the notion, was worth locomotion?

Also by way of inspiration, allow me to note that today, July 4th, 2020, that - for whatever reason - I feel inspired to public ally share the 90 free videos - usually reserved for my fellow book patrons & Pythoneers - with you, as well:

Return of the Piranha 
Got a cheap, NEW-name Micro SD card. Should have known better, but - after avoiding so many NAND 'knock-offs & outright scams - the card looked genuine?



Yikes. The chips did not even have the decency to die - just trashed my data after working fine for the first bank.

Pure evil.

Knowing what I know from my security & robotics days, I had to either chip it, or get a refund. Times being what they are, we opted for the cash back.

Yet using `dd` and /dev/urandom would have taken days (~150 GB / day!)

So we updated ye olde 'Piranha wipe to gen the files - one group per PID.

Took three 'fish' a few hours to trash 400GB - (odd number of K - yet another sign that the card was untrustworthy!)

Thought I would share the code.

Enjoy the journey,

-- Randall

Installing PIP3 on Ubuntu Server 16.04 
p.s: After setting-up LAMP-py, if you need other modules:
curl "https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py" -o "get-pip.py"
python3 get-pip.py --user

Be sure to 'curl that 'get using the https - Using plain-ol http no longer works.
