I just finished listening to NoDumbQuestions‘ Episode 53 – What Would Happen Every Time You Restarted Earth? I have to say, the discussion definitely got me onto two things which I briefly mentioned in my comment on Reddit (I don’t know if my thoughts will take off at this point, but I wanted to put them out there).Continue reading “Diplomacy”
A few days ago I discovered an amazing music program hosted on the game site Kongregate. Apparently the creator, the guy who runs QuickFingers.net is in some sort of contest for a LOT of money to see who can make the coolest music game on that site. Well, his was on top when I checked a few days ago, and I tried it out. It was AWESOME!! The game he created is called Step Seq (try it at https://www.kongregate.com/games/quickfingerz/step-seq).
Really, this is just like any hardware-based step sequencer, which is apparently some sort of grid of buttons that you can press and it will modulate a midi device and play back notes. Each row on the grid is a single note, while each column is some sort of time index. The sequencer part is based on a concept that the grid will play itself over and over and you can change the settings each time.
Wowee!! So I get comments from people I don’t know at all. Now THAT’S something. And I also had a request to turn on ‘Blogger Follow,’ which I think is crazy. I like simplicity. Little mandatory pictures all over the place make for clutter. But in light of popular demand, fine. I’ll do that.
On a similar note, I’m going to remove the Daily Dilbert, even though it’s cool. It takes way too long to load and it’s again a big blob of mess at the top of every page. So goodbye, even though it’s cool.
Okay, so this thing is seriously neglected, but then again, I’ve been rather busy minding my own business and not fighting with my dialup connection, which I rather think is slow. Anyway, here I be. I just was reminded of this when I decided to get a LinkedIn account created for my job search. And yes, I did lose my job back in March because the company had to ‘cut costs.’ Of course, I still don’t feel too badly about it as I was looking for some change of pace and stress-level, but it still hurts to have no income. However, I DO hope to get searching better and maybe I’ll find someone to work for.
Other notes: none.
More notes? None.
Do I have much more to say? No. Not really.
So I’ll wrap it up here or something and get this posted as all my thousands of fans are probably pulling their hair out (if they have any left) wondering why I don’t post anything here.
Okay, so I was looking Myst Uru pictures on Google, and saw that it was possible to get into the big volcano in New Mexico. Plus a bunch of other places that I had never been. Well, I started looking and discovered that it was due to a developer tool called Flymode!
Now with the demise of Uru Live (which I never got to experience), I found that this tool is pretty rare out there and most websites have been taking them down. However, I found that someone on the UruObsession website found it and posted it on SendSpace. The flymode tool can be found here, thanks to highwaykind.
I tried the MasterTheCube.com video tutorial on solving the Rubik’s Cube. I got it almost finished and then the author made a mistake (prematurely solved it), beat himself on the head a couple times, tried it again and then gave up. Plus, he cared more about his sawed off thumb and therefore wouldn’t get to the point. Also he mumbles, and I can hardly understand him.
So I broke down and tried watching Dan Brown’s videos on the Rubik’s cube. He seems to me to be a pretty talented orator, and so he was extremely easy to understand. I would go with his tutorial if I could choose.
I just realized something. Linerider has profiles just like Youtube channels (which I am obsessed with, as you probably have already guessed). So, to see all of my videos, vote for them and stuff, I would suggest going to this link:
