feels weird jumping out of javascript and into css
not too weird, but odd enough

woot woot
I made a script so i could use arrow keys to navigate a comic. Is that great?
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jul 16 2016 02:12
yes
hmm... I need ideas. I would do great things all the time if it wasn't for the fact that I never have ideas on the spur of the moment
this is going to start the night off right

Good morning!

Morning!? What time zone are you in?
Mike
@dcpking
Jul 16 2016 02:18
This one - same as you. Just I've been averaging about 5 hours/night of sleep for the last fortnight and the rest of the time full-time programming or learning. Brain feels fried!
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jul 16 2016 02:20
Is that a healthy amount of sleep? I don't function with less than 8 hours
anything interesting that you learned?
Mike
@dcpking
Jul 16 2016 02:23
Healthy? Probably not, but wtf! Learning? Udemy course: CSS finished. Javascript next. Midweek spent Wednesday at Splunk Live in NYC. Learning mostly about ways to use it for security - kind of a day spent catching ideas.
David Castner

Jul 16 2016 02:23
nice!
I've noticed a lot of people are using Udemy in here, @dcpking what's your take on it?
Mike
@dcpking
Jul 16 2016 02:24
Have you ever heard of Splunk (http://www.splunk.com/) ? It's a program system for mining info from machine-generated data, like log files
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jul 16 2016 02:25
Nope I haven't looking at it now
Mike

I was really liking it until the video quality dropped abruptly on about Tuesday. Seems ok again now. Bear in mind that I wrote a heap of HTML before 2003, a lot of which was backed by databases - Bluestone (the company I was with ) developed a system to provide the glue between the web page and the database systems.
The charge on a per-use basis - below a certain number of MB per day it's free. When I worked at ComCast we were forever trying to slim down the log files we fed it - 'cos 2 TB/day was expensive :)

Jul 16 2016 02:30
yea that can be exspensive
splunk looks interesting, might look more into at some point
Mike
@dcpking
Jul 16 2016 02:32
(that was just the metadata on the email :) ) The idea behind Splunk is that you feed it log files and it cherry-picks out dates, times, and common events, and then you can look at specific events over time. For security you can do realtime things like alerting when too many mistakes are made - not just logins - by someone, for example.
So, so far, as I was saying, I'm liking the Udemy course. Stuff seems to be sticking, believe it or not!

Colt is a good teacher imo
Mike
@dcpking
Jul 16 2016 02:34
@Lilyheart I agree, Lily. He has a fun sense of humour and knows how much to repeat himself to get you to remember things without realising it.
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jul 16 2016 02:34
That's awesome, did you create any cool webpages with your newfound css skills?
Lily Romano

@davidjcastner Not yet - work's been getting in the way.
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jul 16 2016 02:36
I understand that one
Mike
@dcpking
Jul 16 2016 02:36
@Lilyheart Aha!! To see if I can match yours. Probably not!
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jul 16 2016 02:36
heh, I added some things outside of the class features xD
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jul 16 2016 02:37
is it sad that I still can do okay with all the hardest settings
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jul 16 2016 02:37
that’s a good thing! I’m getting better
The code is all cleaned up and on GitHub now. I think I forwarded all the places it used to be to GitHub now. https://github.com/Lilyheart/guess-the-rgb
I want to add a slider where you can select how close the colors will be, but I have to retool the layout first.
David Castner

ah. I didn't get into that yet - I have an Apache server mounted here at home on my laptop, and am thinking of using that.
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jul 16 2016 02:42

David Castner

Mike
@dcpking
Jul 16 2016 02:43

@Lilyheart could you do me a favour? - see if my port-forwarding works? 100.11.100.98:83
it should show an Apache default welcome page
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jul 16 2016 02:45

This site can’t be reached

100.11.100.98 refused to connect.

Jul 16 2016 02:56
Oh. Just like me for the last month or so. I'm liking it, despite Unity not having multi-level launch buttons
I keep a google sheet of all the SW that has to get reloaded after each mov, 'cos I normally do a move onto a new hard disk
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jul 16 2016 03:00
I have a script that does it for me, but I usually do it manually to make sure I have all the latest versions
I also tend to reinstall the OS rather than remove odd version if I have to remove more than one or two
Mike
@dcpking
Jul 16 2016 03:01
I thought of that too, but they all keep changing all the time - and Synaptic in U16.04 is missing a lot of stuff that it had in Mint 17.3, so I've had to hunt them down.
So anyhow, gotta go sleep very soon - housework and workwork tomorrow (release next Friday - every few days more gets added it it :( )

In news that will shock no one, I'm making a spreadsheet. The sad part is my collection of minecraft minifigs has reached this point.
