Never Alone!!!! One of Us!!! and all the other chant-y things. I've ended the stream as it's 8 p.m. but I'll still be around. Tomorrow I might look at the video of the stream and see if it's worth keeping. @davidjcastner from your seat, would the video be worth keeping assuming I can delete the dead air at the beginning and end?

Starting my tribute page, any suggestions?

May 18 2016 00:41
@Lilyheart I thought that was just how many challenges we had done. How does it work?
@davidjcastner I did Sid Vicious for my first one, I'm thinking about doing a tribute to Ganesha which is my ishta dev but I may do one for Krishna at some point also
David Castner
@davidjcastner
May 18 2016 00:43
hmm maybe a tribute to :octocat: ?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
May 18 2016 00:44
That would be awesome. If you need pictures I can bring my sticker collection and mug (and shirt and...)
David Castner

Or at least put background music on itπŸ˜‚
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
May 18 2016 01:24
lulz. I don't know how much of the presentation you were here for but there were some big dead air spots (by design, introductions, and other questions).
I might do a few more edits on it then reupload so don't spread that link out yet. We soooo need a logo so some such.

@rmaylie9560

I jumped in during the "what to do when you're stuck" part. I watched it again
yay, im finally off my phone.
ok, so lets talk logo design

Adam wanted a challenge... so I made an Adam level of difficulty on the color game. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1413496/Misc/color-game/index.html
xD
David Castner
@davidjcastner
May 18 2016 02:32
You could make it more challenging by selecting colors that are closer together
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
May 18 2016 02:33
heh. you are evil man.
I like it xD
David Castner
@davidjcastner

I ended up going with the :octocat:

I wanna be so mean... I wanna make it so when the Adam level is selected, like a minute or so later, the Doctor Who weeping angle appears as the background....

nice xD
I don't remember how the page was set up. the right js code might have been able to pull it but you might have done that already xD
imma go pass out now
David Castner

May 18 2016 03:16
yea I was trying to pull it directly but I'll implement that later goodnight

Dunno if I'm good enough to scrape directly but I could probably figure it out I would just scrape into a table like I did for my quote generator but I'm lazy LOL

Let me know if you have any made up octofactoids for the site
this is what I have so far
var Factoids = [

  "Octocats are notoriously shy; therefore, seeing one in the wild is extremely rare.",
  "Although the octocat is part of the feline family, it exhibits many characteristics of octopusses.",

  "The first octocat fossil discoved was found in digital form.",
  "When threatened, the octocat lets out a \"meow\" and a jet of ink.",
  "Why did the octocat cross the road? It didn't have a choice, everyone was pushing and pulling it across.",
  "The first words of any octocat are \"Hello World!\"."

gonna go eat dinner but I should get responses on my phone if anyone is here, I'm trying to move my youtube embeds over to the iframe api instead of doing it through html embeds as it gives me some more control. I keep getting an unexpected end of input error though. Do any of you see anything I don't?
 var tag = document.createElement('script');
 tag.src = "https://www.youtube.com/iframe_api";
 var firstScriptTag = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];
 firstScriptTag.parentNode.insertBefore(tag, firstScriptTag);

 function onYouTubeIframeAPIReady() {
   var player;

   function onYouTubeIframeAPIReady() {
     player = new YT.Player('player', {
       height: '300',
       width: '300',
       videoId: 'qbmWs6Jf5dc',
       events: {
         'onReady': onPlayerReady,
         'onStateChange': onPlayerStateChange
       }
     });
   }

@lantech19446 I'll be available later tonight to help if you don't get any responses before then

Ok I'll keep messing with it in the meantime
Jonathan Herman

got the error to go away, it's still not functioning correctly however. Working on it.
Robert Maylie
@rmaylie9560
May 18 2016 22:23
What's it doing?
and what did you find to get it semi working?
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
May 18 2016 22:25
absolutely nada like if I remove one of the videos and then fill in the videoID on there it should come up where I insert <div id="player"></div> but it doesn't. What I realized was that there's an open { for the api ready that never got closed so I added in the bracket and then it started to run without an error
Robert Maylie
@rmaylie9560
May 18 2016 22:31
I'm on my phone, so I can't test, but put the onPlayerReady and the rest of the calls in quotes
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
May 18 2016 22:31
I'm not sure how much I object to doing it with the embeds though because according to yahoo all the iframe api really does is create the code I'm getting from the embed link and insert it anyway. One thing I started working on in the meantime is making it mobile responsive and the videos are a little out of screen maybe because I used md instead of xs but everything else is working
Robert Maylie
@rmaylie9560

"onPlayerReady"
youre outside of your comfort zone. That's exactly where you want to be.
thats where you learn stuff
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
May 18 2016 22:34
they have it set on the api info page with the onready in quotes and then onplayerready like that I just copy and pasted and then changed the video ID. but this is stuff I've never done anything with at all because I haven't even gotten to the javascript lessons yet and this is way beyond jquery lol
Robert Maylie
@rmaylie9560
May 18 2016 22:40
Ok I just checked out the api
You're calling a function.
so it's like onPlayerReady(videoID);
Robert Maylie
@rmaylie9560
May 18 2016 22:46
I kinda breezed through it. I have my girls atm but I can try and help later
itll be a learning experience for us both.

Lincoln tech helped to an extent because I didn't even start out there for computers I was a CJ major so yea 20,000 dollar investment to figure out I liked working with computers and close to a year after I graduated got a job in the height of the recession. Walden did shit for me I don't use anything I studied there, when I tried to change to something more applicable they screwed me and made me ineligible for financial aid.
