Behind the Scenes

by Cory on November 19, 2018

I spent the last two weeks upgrading Slacker Paradise! I realized that I wanted a new feature where I could queue up "Highlight of the Day" links and have it update the front page about every day. Up until now, I've been keeping a backlo...

    Tonight We Are Victorious

    by Cory on October 31, 2015

    It's the end of October 31st and thus marks the end of what is probably the worst month of 2015 for me. I finally have a chair and a table to put my computer on and an internet connection to use to write this. I've spent the past two weeks in an e...

    I'm back. I ran out of data on my phone for the month. It'll reset next week. Until then I'm stuck sitting in an empty room with no furniture staring at a wall. Actually, I'm posting this from work. I didn't really want to do that, but you know, g...

    Little Red Pill

    by Cory on October 21, 2015

    I got pills. I'm staring at the bottle right now. The doctor says I'm depressed now and not just dysthymic. I asked him what the turning point was and he says my conversation with him shows an increased degree of "hopelessness" compared to last ti...

    Crashlanding... Again

    by Cory on October 17, 2015

    So I am no longer homeless. I signed a lease for a $1600 studio that's kind of nice but also kind of ghetto when you take a close look. I'm stuck here for 12 months while I stare at my computer screen at another studio that's $150 cheaper a month ...

    I got fleas. Jesus Christ, why am I doing this? I'm not poor, I have a job. I'm staying at an airbnb place that booked for a month. It's a 2 bed Chinese apartment in Milpitas that someone converted into a ghetto hostel and the bed I'm staying on h...

    Hobo Log: Day 3

    I thought my "hobocation" at the downtown San Jose Mariott would be pretty good, but I managed to fuck it up as usual. I'm at work right now posting using my phone and I've been exhausted this entire day despite catching up on a l...

    Living in the Bay Area and the Zen of Having No Stuff

    by Cory on October 10, 2015

    I'm getting kicked out of my room, because I finally chewed out my landlord for being a huge dick. My living situation was pretty much ideal compared to the rest of the bay area I guess, but the thought of being subject to his everywhim was gnawin...

    Good Lord, I am a Hot Mess

    by Cory on October 5, 2015

    Ugh, I had a terrible weekend. I'm going to warn you in advance, this entire post is going to be bitching about how horrible my life and everyone around me is. (Not like it's much different from the rest of my blog posts...).

    I spent the majority...

Small Business For Dummies

Eric Tyson

I found this on a table at work and it was from 1998 which is funny because computers and the internet were super new back then. This is an overview for someone who has no clue how to start a business

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.

The Botany of Desire: A Plant's-Eye View of the World

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.
