The frequency of notifications and the number of subscribers can be configured by editing the function settings() in pushgenerator.py.
pushd process is expected be running on localhost on port 5000 (configurable by PUSHD_SERVER variable in pushgenerator.py).
By default, pushgenerator.py creates random HTTP POST subscribers as the receivers of the notifications. The HTTP push service must be enabled in pushd's settings.coffee.
