Amazon query instances script using boto.ec2

Posted 06-05-2015 at 12:36 PM by Habitual (Spock's Brain)
Updated 06-24-2015 at 10:57 AM by Habitual

My very first Python script hatched into existence today, My Birthday!

This script utilizes the boto.ec2 library.
It runs in 2 seconds.
All my past experience has been outright butchery of the bash environment, and if I did this in bash, it would take 45s'ish and be painful.
Be sure to read this wrt the boto config for profiles: eg: ~/.boto:

[profile default]
aws_access_key_id = key 
aws_secret_access_key = secret

Scanner (here: Mustek Bearpaw 1200 CS), Scanning and file size reduction under Debian Jessie

Posted 06-05-2015 at 07:44 AM by jere21

Save A1fw.usb to /usr/share/sane/gt68xx/ and start scanning with sane.

More general instructions for installing a scanner:
  1. Your user should be in group "scanner" and sane must be installed. In my case I have:
    ii  libsane:amd64         1.0.24-13    amd64  API library for scanners
    ii  libsane-common        1.0.24-13    all    API library for scanners -- documentation and support files
    ii  libsane-extras:amd64     amd64
