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...

    Made Some Changes to the Website in Forever

    by Cory on August 21, 2018

    I switched the API I used to query books from Amazon to Google! So it turns out the amazon product api access you get is revoked after like 6 months if you don't get a certain number of referral links, which is fucking bullshit. Basically this mea...

    Day 123: More Building

    by Cory on August 21, 2018

    This is exciting, I think I'm almost done. I just want one good tomato of each variety to see what they taste like. And if I can do that, this is a success.

    The Big Garden Gem tomato is turning ripe.

    I'm gonna be watching this one like a haw...

    Day 121: Fruit Progress

    by Cory on August 18, 2018

    The remaining garden treasure plant is still going strong and producing fruit really well now. There's 7 budding tomatoes on it and they are getting bigger at a good rate.

    The watermelon on top is also growing nicely. I have it so that there ar...

    Day 117: More Fruit

    by Cory on August 13, 2018

    I finally found pollinated tomatoes on the other varieties!

    Garden treasure 1 has been flowering consistently for a few weeks and I was getting worried because it seemed like nothing was getting pollinated. But now I see like 3 or 4 pea sized tom...

    Some Visual Shit

    by Cory on August 10, 2018

    I was working on prefabs not making any progress and hating it when I just decided to work on adding animations because it's about time.

    Check it out.

    I added some quick and dirty movement code to hook it up to the keyboard. Also I added a men...

    I ate that ripe tomato today. I left to ripen on the counter with a mango, a peach, and a nectarine.

    You can see that the rot is actually starting to creep up on the ripe part.

    I cut it open and got rid of the rotten part. It was black up in t...

    Day 111: A Red Tomato

    by Cory on August 7, 2018

    Remember that ripening tomato? Well, I went outside today to check on it and it was gone! I was pissed at first because I thought some birds might have seen it and eaten it, but I was scanning underneath the bridge just in case. After like 10 minu...

    Day 109: Thinking About the Next Season

    by Cory on August 5, 2018

    I noticed today that the oldest tomato on garden gem 1 is turning red. This is cool I guess. It's too bad it has blossom end rot and that it's like the size of a ping pong ball. These tomatoes are going to be horribly small and probably won't tast...

Web Client Programming with Perl

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.

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.
