ha, just lost like 4 hours of work
i moved two files last night into a js folder, then kept working on the same doc in sublimetext
turns out it created a new file (obvi) in the old location, which i kept refreshing wondering how in the hell it was still working
since i completely refactored the model

Giiittttthhhhhuuuuubbbbbbbbbb
Even just git xD. Dont need to take it online. Local repo.
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Jul 12 2016 14:04 UTC
ha oh i still have both copies, it’s just the new one i tested after every change (i thought), but it turns out that i didn’t actually test anything and now the new version is completely broken
so better to just go back to old version
:cry:
it’s actually not that bad, it’s only refactoring that i lost, and it was only the model. the actual app is still the same in terms of functionality
could have been really bad though, i’m happy to be forced to learn this lesson like this. Plus it was probably only like a little over an hour of work now that i think of it, i spent the rest of the night on knockout

i lost an RPG that i worked on for over 6 months once xD
along with about a dozen other games (my creations), a couple of which were well into dev

Jul 12 2016 14:08 UTC
totally need git for things like that @ _ @ or dropbox.
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Jul 12 2016 14:08 UTC
that was pre-cloud days
it actually really sucked. i loved that rpg :(
was middle school, my parents surprised us with a new computer xD
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jul 12 2016 14:09 UTC
shhhhh I used webhosting space for things like that. usually against TOS tho.
it was either webhosting space on dialup, or floppies. heh

Jul 12 2016 14:10 UTC
ha nice
i also once had my first college laptop HD fail, also no backup xD
funny enough, that wasn’t as bad
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jul 12 2016 14:11 UTC
can say you have strongly learned the power of the backup
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Jul 12 2016 14:11 UTC
ha yeah, my entire file system is directly through dropbox or icloud drive
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jul 12 2016 14:11 UTC
i use too many computers so i keep everything in the cloud just for convenience.

hey @Lilyheart was there a shortcut for wrapping a selected group of html in another tag in Atom?
I think I remember you mentioning one before
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jul 12 2016 17:10 UTC
A plugin. I love it. Let me get the name for ya
I use it a lot.
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jul 12 2016 17:13 UTC
awesome thanks!
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jul 12 2016 17:13 UTC
I believe emmet does it as well but I haven't had the time to checkout the other features of that plugin. Might end up switching to that if I like it.
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jul 12 2016 17:14 UTC
not sure if you knew this but Atom has a lorem ipsum generator built in
Atom <3
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jul 12 2016 17:16 UTC
oh yes. very much so! When I did my quick 5 minute Atom is awesome to my CIS111B class, that is one thing I mentioned. Also, if you have a blank file ending in .html, you can use html tab to get your skelly
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jul 12 2016 17:17 UTC
oh they have something similar for shell scripts
now I want to go test all file endings brb
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jul 12 2016 17:18 UTC
Let us know. :laughing:

@davidjcastner you don’t know knockout.js, correcT?
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jul 12 2016 17:23 UTC
I do not but try me anyways
Eric Phy

I’m losing my mind trying implent my UI with KO.js with a styled google maps [api implemented] view
i honestly don’t even know where to start, i’m literally losing my mind
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jul 12 2016 17:24 UTC
what are you trying to do?
with your ui that is
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Jul 12 2016 17:26 UTC
simple: just a list that updates from searchbox input and shows markers on a google map, that create infoWindows with wikimedia data, when selected
it’s really not a difficult thing, i could be finished right now using js
but i’m forced to use knockout
and it’s making me go fucking crazy
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jul 12 2016 17:28 UTC
have any code so far?
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Jul 12 2016 17:28 UTC
yeah over 300 lines
but it’s api calls mostly, and you don’t know knockout, so i feel like an ass asking for you to look at it
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jul 12 2016 17:30 UTC
I've used google maps api quite a bit
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Jul 12 2016 17:30 UTC
one major issue is that i can only get the list to work correctly when i call the knockout viewmodel as a function, and the google maps api stuff has to be in its own function
and i need the two to talk to their embedded functions
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jul 12 2016 17:31 UTC
tell you what, if you are still having issues after 5pm today send me the code and I promise not to spend much time on it

How goes everyone's coding? I think I might try to finally knock out that tribute page.
David Castner

I haven't had a chance to work of freeCodeCamp projects, but I might try to work on my portfolio page soon
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jul 12 2016 21:24 UTC
That sounds like a worthy goal @davidjcastner I'm thinking my winter project should be to finally get mine cleaned up (nicer) and actually where it needs to be.
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jul 12 2016 21:34 UTC
alright what do you think http://codepen.io/davidjcastner/pen/yJbwAQ
@Lilyheart think I can get away with that so I can just edit my actual portfolio
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jul 12 2016 21:36 UTC
sneaky :) Yar
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jul 12 2016 21:37 UTC
like it would pass for freeCodeCamp certification? I still need to update my actual portfolio
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jul 12 2016 21:38 UTC
I would check the details. It feels like it’s missing one or two of the user story points, but I first started my portfolio over 6 months ago so they may have changed the requirements since then.
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jul 12 2016 21:39 UTC
oh it's missing user story points, but in terms of not actually showing the code? (the fact that it's a redirect rather than a project on codepen)
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jul 12 2016 21:39 UTC
Oh I think that would be fine.
David Castner

I’d really like to be able to have meetings on campus, but I really don’t think we can deal with the Commercial General Liability insurance requirements. /sigh
