When you hire a moving firm to move your stuff, are you allowed to ride with them?

No. No license.

Because the companies are not licensed to haul passengers for pay.

There are a bunch of rules for that, including collecting data about passengers, ticketing and tariff rules, safety of accommodations, provision of bathrooms, etc. etc. In a Federal country, there will also be rules at the state level for every state transited, so you get a lot of weird problems like “Can’t cut the corner through Oklahoma”.

Needless to say, being inside the cargo area is Right Out. When stowaways try to sneak in the cargo area, they are often killed by shifting loads.


Also, a long-distance move will involve stops and driver changes. The next set of drivers might not appreciate the passenger none too much.

Also, because of the human factors, long-distance moves can be quite circuitous. If your load doesn’t “cube out” the truck, they may put up a separator and load someone else’s stuff behind yours. They may stop at a depot, back your truck up against a wall (so the doors can’t be opened) and the drivers head home to their families to sleep in their own bed, and now security has this random person inside the yard to contend with.

Think smaller

Everything I said above applies to general “out of the phone book” long-haul commercial movers. Those guys are full-service turnkey – point them at a house and they will pack up everything in it, and it will show up in boxes in the same rooms in the new house.

There are certainly more informal “movers” that are just “A guy with a truck” sort of deals. They will be much more informal in all respects, and you will have much more flex to negotiate. However, this will shift more responsibility onto you – you will need to buy boxes, pack yourself, and possibly help move furniture. And obviously, the farther you go, the more difficult it will be to get an informal mover.

Honestly, you may be making too much out of the risk here. Nobody wants some random person’s stuff. If you doubt that, then go watch some of the TV shows about people who buy random storage units at auction. Those guys are the best in the business at getting value from random personal possessions, and even they can’t get much for random stuff.

What is all this stuff showing in Netstat -a

enter image description here

My computer has been having internet speed of 0.5Mbps lately. So I figured I’d check netstat just to see if I could see anything.

What the hell is all this??
And why so much.

I ran this, with nothing running at all.

2d – Dynamic Sort order For walking in front and behind stuff

I’m using tile maps, and I’m having a difficult time with the concept of walking both in front of things, and behind things and having the layers sort order show properly. Take the image below, I need it to behave like #1 AND #2, so that if you walk behind it, you get that nice layering. However, I also need it to act like #2 when infront of it without looking like #3. Is there some sort of way to make the top of the barrels sort order change depending on if the player is in front of it, or behind it?

I was looking at rule tiles, but that’s something else, unless there is some feature about it I do not know of.

Netherlands import fee refund when leaving country with stuff

I have bought a laptop from the US. They sent me the laptop to my address in the Netherlands by UPS.
Before delivering the laptop, UPS asked me to pay 380 Euros for the Import fee.
I am a businessman living temporarily in the Netherlands with a residence permit.
I have bought this laptop for my personal use.
When leaving the Netherlands, can I claim for refund of the import fee?
If yes, How should I handle it?

xml – Is there a way to save MS Word document as HTML w/o the ms proprietary stuff?

So normally I wouldn’t use this feature (“Save as Web Page”) but I have large documents from clients they just want put on their site as HTML, and formatting it all by hand seems like a waste of time.

I have tried “save as webpage” in Word 2007, but it produces all sorts of bad stuff. To wit:

<b style='mso-bidi-font-weight:normal'>
<span style="mso-spacerun: yes">

as well as a large block of XML formatting info:

<!--(if gte mso 9)><xml>
 <o:Subject> </o:Subject>
 <o:Author> </o:Author>
 <o:Keywords> </o:Keywords>

As I said, formatting it all by hand seems like a waste of time, but the way MS exports currently just has too much cruft. Is there a way to export MS Word doc as html without all this?

EDIT: This document is a charter/bylaws type document and therefor has many levels of nested list. One of my criteria for “success” in this conversion endeavor is that the list hierarchy is retained, not discarded.

python – Automate the Boring Stuff Chapter 8 Sandwich Maker

The “PEP 8 — Style Guide for Python Code” has many recommendations on how programs should be written, for maximum understandability between programmers.

Variable Names

The one that you violate the most relates to variable naming. PEP8 recommends snake_case for all variables. So customerOrder should be customer_order, sandwichTotal should be sandwich_total, etc.


Constants, things which never change, should be named using UPPERCASE or UPPERCASE_WITH_UNDERSCORES. Therefore, optionPrices should be OPTION_PRICES.

White Space

PEP-8 recommends no space between a diction key and the :.

optionPrices contains breads, proteins, cheeses, and extras. This seems like it is stuffing too much — well, stuffings — into one container.

I might write:

BREAD_PRICE = {'white':2.00, 'wheat': 2.50, 'sour dough': 3.00}
PROTEIN_PRICE = {'chicken': 2.50, 'turkey': 2.25, 'ham': 1.75, 'tofu': 4.00}
CHEESE_PRICE = {'cheddar': 1.00, 'swiss' : 1.25, 'mozzarella' : 2.00}
EXTRA_PRICE = {'mayo': 0.25, 'mustard': 0.25, 'lettuce': 0.30, 'tomato': 0.50}

With the bread, protein, and cheese options, you could now write a common function:

def get_sandwich_choice(category, options):
    prompt = "Please choose your " + category + ":n"
    choices = list(options.keys())
    choice = pyip.inputMenu(choices, prompt, lettered=True)
    return choice

bread_choice = get_sandwich_choice('bread', BREAD_PRICE)
protein_choice = get_sandwich_choice('protein', PROTEIN_PRICE)

The price containers are all really the same kind of things, just in groups. So one might instead …

PRICE = {'bread': {'white':2.00, 'wheat': 2.50, 'sour dough': 3.00},
         'protein': {'chicken': 2.50, 'turkey': 2.25, 'ham': 1.75, 'tofu': 4.00},
         'cheese': {'cheddar': 1.00, 'swiss' : 1.25, 'mozzarella' : 2.00},
         'extras': {'mayo': 0.25, 'mustard': 0.25, 'lettuce': 0.30, 'tomato': 0.50},

and the choices could be fetched with:

bread_choice = get_sandwich_choice('bread', PRICE('bread'))
protein_choice = get_sandwich_choice('protein', PRICE('protein'))

You could expand this further by adding more data. bread is choice, protein is a choice, cheese is an optional choice, extras are optionals. Based on the category type, you could call the appropriate user input functions. The prompt for each category could be customized, and so on. To add this extra data, I’d look into @dataclass.

Are all things in customerOrder the same? The bread is kind of unique; you need two slices for the sandwich. The extras might eventually have options like “light on the mayo” or “heavy on the mustard”, where as you can’t ask for extra bread. So it might make more sense keeping them separate. bread_choice, protein_choice, cheese_choice, and a list of extras. This also helps our cost, since the prices are in different containers.

def sandwich_cost(bread, protein, cheese, extras):
    cost = PRICE('bread')(bread) + PRICE('protein')(protein)
    if cheese:
        cost += PRICE('cheese')(cheese)
    for extra in extras:
        cost += PRICE('extra')(extra)

sandwich_total = sandwich_cost(bread_choice, protein_choice, cheese_choice, extras)

Again, a @dataclass may be useful in construction a sandwich object.

By having a separate function for computing the sandwich cost, you make your code testable. For example, you could check:

assert sandwich_cost('white', 'tofu', 'cheddar', ('tomato')) == 7.50
assert sandwich_cost('white', 'tofu', '', ()) == 6.00

Look into unittest for better ways of writing test code.

It is a good habit to move your code into functions, and call it from inside a “main guard” at the end of the code. Eg)

import pyinputplus as pyip

... helper functions here ...

def main():
    ... code here ...

if __name__ == '__main__':

Lots of ways to improve this code. I’ve touched on a few. Experiment, and once you’ve got something working, post a new followup question for further advice.
