Convert string Lat/Long to number for Google Maps API.

Convert string Lat/Long to number for Google Maps API

When sending Lat/Long values to the Google Maps API for something like setCenter(), it wants an number value. But the value we pull from an option menu like the one below is a string.

<select id="searchString" onchange="zoomToAddress(this.value);">
<option value="">--Select All--</option>
<option value="43.138092,-89.747988">Luckenbooth Cafe</option>
<option value="43.017218,-89.831479">Aunt Mary's Hooterville Inn</option>

A quick Python script that implements "paging" -- or at least Twitter's version of it -- to search the social media platform's API for a given hashtag

I helped the folks at #wjchat a while back by writing a quick django app to pull tweets each week and save them to a database. The tweets were then accessible as formatted HTML that could be posted in the #wjchat Wordpress blog.

But something happened around the middle of April. The script pulled in 389 tweets on April 16, but the following week only caught 100. Same for the week after.

I did some hand-holding for a few weeks, but more and more of the same occurred.

#wjchat-transcript news: @ChrisLKeller & I are aware we’re a couple weeks behind. Pipes running the transcripts are a little clogged. Soon!
