It seems the geeksphone is out of stock again! Firefox OS is having the attention it deserves and I’m happy for it.
When I was waiting for the shop to open, I create a small script to know when was opened again, just for fun. If you are eager to get one like I was, maybe you would like to use it. :-)
import requests import time WAIT = 600 r = requests.get('http://shop.geeksphone.com') while True: if r.status_code == 200: print 'Geeksphone available' time.sleep(WAIT)
You can change the print to send you an email for example.
import requests import time import smtplib from email.mime.text import MIMEText WAIT = 600 r = requests.get('http://shop.geeksphone.com') while True: if r.status_code == 200: server = '[email protected]' client = '[email protected]' msg = MIMEText('Geeksphone available!') msg['Subject'] = 'Important message' msg['From'] = server msg['To'] = client s = smtplib.SMTP('localhost') s.sendmail(server, [client], msg.as_string()) s.quit() break time.sleep(WAIT)
If you want to send an email to yourself, install an application like Postfix or Exim for Python to be able to send it.
