comment Python 3.4 and virtual environment's pip
@Doc you can use python -mpip, to make sure that pip corresponds to python executable (virtualenv or not). Run python3 -m ensurepip, to make sure pip is available.

comment Command for determining my public IP?
@AdamMonsen Thank you for the link. The point of using DNS (as the answer that you've linked says) is that the response is standard (and unlikely to change) and the service (OpenDNS) might stick around longer than most of its http alternatives. The time it takes to make the request might be shadowed by the command start up time.

your mobile operator may provide a web-interface to send SMS. Then there is something like twilio.

comment How do I check whether a module is installed or not in Python?
@souravc: the point is to avoid sudo, not pip. I use pip all the time to install various packages into local virtual environments.

comment How do I check whether a module is installed or not in Python?
don't use sudo pip; it may break system python. Use apt-get to install packages for system python. You could use pip --user option or virtualenv to install Python packages for yourself.

comment How do I check whether a module is installed or not in Python?
@ZackTitan: pip is included with python on Windows too (since Python 2.7.9 and Python 3.4). Run python -m ensurepip, to make sure pip is installed there.

comment Install Python in Wine
I can confirm that wine msiexec /i python-3.4.2.msi /L*v log.txt commands can install Python 3.4 on wine-1.6.2 where the msi file is from python.org. wine start python-3.4.2.msi fails for some reason on my machine YMMV.

comment Sleep time variable from file?
do you want to wait for a specific (absolute) time such as 2015-02-20 12:00:00+00:00 or do you want to wait given number of seconds e.g., 10 (sleep 10 seconds). What do you want to happen if your computer hibernates: do you want the script to wake up immediately or wait the rest of the time e.g., 3 seconds?
