I am an OCD. Some times I created Google Cloud Product Projects for some purposes, later I found that quite disordered. And I really really need to delete unused projects but struggling with awaiting projects to be deleted or can not delete because I pair with firebase or something.

Here’s how to force shut down.

Step 1.) go to GCP console and activate cloud shell

Step 2.) get your lien_name

Step 3.) Goodbye roger.

As shown in Gist, you need 2 things, the project_id and lien_name which the project_id comes from dashboard page and the lien comes from code in line 2.

That’s it, my OCD is fulfilled.

if you’re an OCD, like me, update packages is a-must even it demolished some past projects

Even I mostly done my data analysis projects on VSCode but sometimes missing packages can ruin my day. For an example, I’m scrapping the website using BeautifulSoup4 as usual but this time I want lxml as a parser.

so I go for

soup = BeautifulSoup(html, 'lxml')

it throws error, and I realize that I have to `pip install lxml`
but for Conda (or Jupyter) the lxml is already there!

People might laugh at it or call it foolish logic, but that’s enough for me. That’s what romanticism is about!
