I made some more code to create a flash notification that goes away when you click off of it and a textbox that you can type things into. I'm revealing a lot of rough edges of the codebase that I have right now which is kind of demotivat...

    Day 167: The Ultimate Pizza?!?!??!?

    by Cory on October 8, 2018

    I gathered like 10 garden gems along with a big ripe garden treasure. I had a few gems, a medium treasure, and a medium W hybrid from my friend that I threw in the freezer. On Sunday I made spaghetti sauce and bough ingrediants for pizza dough and...

    Day 164: Goodbye, Watermelon

    by Cory on October 3, 2018

    It's coming close to when I should tear everything down. Everything is almost ready now, I'm just waiting for all the garden treasures to ripen. I did a lot of garden shit today! I'm lucky I'm in California because I can't believe how long it took...

    Day 164: Winter is Coming

    by Cory on October 1, 2018

    One of my treasures was finally ripe. It looks really nice on the plant.

    I picked it today and it turns out to have blossom end rot. :(

    It tasted okay.

    It's very sweet, probably from the epsom salt and stuff. Needs more in the meaty d...

    Day 159: Watermelon Down

    by Cory on September 26, 2018

    My watermelon broke off the vine yesterday!

    It's slightly smaller than a softball, but also lopsided. I'm not too broken up about it though because it didn't seem like it was going to grow big or finish in time. The internet says you can't ...

    Working Collisions and BuilderScene Modifications

    by Cory on September 25, 2018

    After I added those extra conditions, I added more platforms to play around with and then a new system to move the camera around based on where the player character sprite is. I'm using a new component with the system called a "CameraAnchor" that ...

    Day 150 [DONE]: Mission Accomplished!

    by Cory on September 17, 2018

    On Friday, I ate home grown tomatoes of all three varieties. I started all this gardening hoohah to answer one very simple question. What the eff do these tomatoes taste like? That douchy guy in the Doritos flavoring book made such a big deal out ...

    Swept AABB Collision Detection Illuminated

    by Cory on September 15, 2018

    I think I finally fucking figured it out. I've been using these two website guides for the "swept AABB" collision detection algorithm and I couldn't figure out why it wasn't completely right.

    Working Out Collision Detection

    by Cory on September 15, 2018

    I've implemented the "regular" AABB collision detection, which is basically just seeing if two squares overlap. According to the internet, this algorithm isn't good when things start moving because you can get a tunneling effect.

    I also spent a c...

Web Client Programming with Perl

Clinton Wong

This is a basic and outdated book but it's good for learning about perl and html request interactions. It's another textbook though so that was kind of boring to read.

Michael Pollan

This is a cool book about co-evolution of plants and people. There are some awesome facts in it.

Snow Crash

Neal Stephenson

This was ok. It gives me a super Neuromancer feel crossed with Idiocracy which is cool. The characters Hiro and Raven are cool too. It gets kind of fan fic -y with Hiro's samurai swords and Y.T.

Niccolo Machiavelli

Eh its ok. It made me more interested in Machiavelli's life and times but it also contains some interesting political stuff.
