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...

    Day 130: Not Stolen Yet

    by Cory on August 27, 2018

    Well, whoever it was who stole the bucket hasn't come back. Not yet at least.

    It's been about 10 degrees colder than usual for the past few weeks and I think it might be because of the smog from the california wildfires. This isn't really good fo...

    Day 125: Collateral Damage

    by Cory on August 22, 2018

    Someone stole one of my buckets. :(

    This fucker just up and stole the entire bucket string and all. I really don't understand why they would want it, I mean the one they stole didn't have any fruit on it and the thing weighed like 30 or 40 pounds...

    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...

    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...

Small Business For Dummies

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.

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.
