I need to make my own retirement count-down webpage.  If all goes well it'll be about the same as v2 python....

Most of my code is still in Python 2.7 as I'm still using ArcGIS 10.3 I'll have to convert a substantial amount of code once I start using Python 3.4

Do note, the python 3.5 comes to the iThings link, for those getting farther behind.  Who needs a story map on your iPhone when you can have an interpolated 3D surface from matplotlib...
