Does anyone use google apps for work?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 00:21
Not here*. We use it at the school. I used it on a domain I had several years ago

Google sites is included and they use like a frontpage type editor but im wondering if it's still possible to code it yourself or if you're religated to using the drag and drop stuff
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 00:25
google site specific I believe is that annoying wysiwyg editor. You used to be able to at least do some custom html on it (that's how I embded some spreadsheets) but they kept cutting things back so I don't know where it ended up.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 00:27
Oi ok so it might be better to do the 30 day free trial and see what it's all about first. Do you know of any other services that offer similar accommodations to small businesses?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 00:28
wysiwyg editor sites?
or are you wanting hosting you have more control over?
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 00:30
Id like to have more control so i can build my own site but still have the integrated services
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 00:33
I use dreamhost for my hosting services and google apps can be layered on for free (last I checked). I can log into the webpanel and make sure that hasn't changed.
Still looks free. This is the what's this? link.
dreamhost isn't necessarily the cheapest host around these days, but I've been with them for over a decade and they have never disappointed. But, I've never done anything huge on them either.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 00:38
Right now the business I'd be putting up is largely fictitious and only for my own use hence the unlimited internal pages on google apps for work but apparently i have to have a public domain to begin with so i might look for something free and then migrate to them if it becomes more real
Im surprised none of the linuxate companies have made a foss version of google apps
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 00:56
This is nuts it's damn near impossible to get a free registration anymore, i would have thought it would be easier now not harder
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 01:20
Think I'll do the 1
1
1.95 .xyz domain and dump it next year if im not using it
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 01:21
that sounds quite reasonable
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 01:23
All this started because i was paying 10 a month for a tib of drive space but i can get way more for the same price on apps lol
Nicholas Hance
@nhance
Aug 22 2016 12:37
wow.. my first domain was registered in 1999
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 12:38
I had geocities I also had some frontpage sites lol but back then you could register them for free through services like that, nowadays even the newest iterations of the idea want like 15 dollars to register your free site.
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 12:42
@nhance Before that domain I had nothing that would need its own name. Any web dev stuff was just pet projects and internet providers gave a place to make websites. I used that and geocities. Any professional programming wasn’t web related but microsoft office products (mostly excel scripting and whatever it was called pre-VB)
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 12:45
lets face it, it'll never get better than geocities lol everyone had one and eventually we all will again if the way movies are going back to the 90's and we're bringing back frontpage like editors again
Nicholas Hance
@nhance
Aug 22 2016 13:33
haha yeah
the 90s were a totally different time!
can't believe that's 20 years ago now
Makes me feel quite old
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 14:17
doesn't it though, years after my dad died my mom decided she wanted a computer so I set about rehabing the one he had used in his office. It was running windows 95 and I don't remember doing it but it listed me as the installer lol I would have been 13
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 14:23
That makes me feel old xD I was out of school by then.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 14:24
lol it's ok Lily I feel like I'm 110
btw do you have OCD?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 14:25
averaging out to a mild case yeah
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 14:25
I have to show you the most soothing picture you'll ever see then
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 14:26
xD I think we've done this before
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 14:26
better than before
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart

Aug 22 2016 14:26
love them purple cables xD I almost said it I hope it has the purple cables.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 14:26
lmao
That's like the prettiest thing I've ever seen, I could meditate to that
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 14:27
I just went through the house counting my cat cables so I could put in an order to get everything the same again. :laughing:
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 14:27
lol
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 14:32
fortunately I have an apartment so I've eliminated cat in its entirety for the moment
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 14:33
all my desk cabling is nicely wrapped up into one big cable like all those purple groups. But I have a sitstand desk so it's almost necessary so that things don't get yanked off. I settled on these in black so it won't stand out in the cabling.
for wifi? or?
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 14:34
yep wall to wall wifi, tv computers our phones it's all they need lol and holy crap 3.6mm
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 14:37
/sigh home automation. I have so much wireless stuff goin' on right now with plans to put in more.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 14:39
I plan on building a tiny house and the likelihood is I'll run all the cabling I could ever want through my walls so that in the future I can do all that stuff
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 14:41
I like the tiny house idea. By the time I actually feel like moving that direction, maybe laws and regulations will have caught up.
I need outlets like every 3 feet in the house it feels like. HA
This 1950s wiring doesn't cut it.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 14:44
lol you're lucky you have wiring from the 50's, when my siste in-law ripped out the walls in her new house to do renovations they found that the wiring was all edison bulbs and bare wrapped wire lol
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 14:44
nice!! This house was built around '52
Next summer I think I'm going to get an electrician and see what can be done.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 14:45
that gets very expensive
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 14:45
yar
It's been on my wish list since the house purchase over 12 years ago xD
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 14:47
nice
gonna throw a generator on while you have it all opened up?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 14:50
While that would be nice, def not in the budget. Power is ridiculously stable here. (knock on wood to not jinx it). The only power outtage in the last... nearly 10 years was when lightening literally struck my backyard. That was last winter. I can't quantify it, but power just doesn't feel the same in the house so I have to get someone in to look at it. I can deal with small electronics, but major stuff I leave to the pros.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 14:51
I feel the same way not to mention all the codes you'd have to learn first to do it right. that's good on the stability though, maybe some new led fixtures and solar panels lol

just saw this actually could you imagine coding your automation system to keep track of the amount of energy you're producing and storing

Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 14:55
I'd love solar but I don't plan on staying in this house long enough to truly see the payoff. Electrician is pretty much necessary at this point if I plan to sell. So many two prong outlets @ _ @ Need moar ground.
Jonathan Herman

o ok
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 22 2016 18:05
so this is a bit late to the party..but i own 1 domain, and have 1 expired domain
yay
so i just took 3 days off (well, yesterday worked half the day but not on nanodegree). That was my longest break since june 2nd
my game prototype was yesterday…it’s coming along nicely :D
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 18:07
I think I have a domain addiction @ _@ Someday I really should figure out what domains I can get rid of.
nice!
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 22 2016 18:07
yeah it’s really awesome
i love working on it; i’ll probably have the most basic structure down in a month maybe
should be production ready in like 1.5 years or something xD
the core campaign structure is going to be unlike anything i’ve ever seen, and will be largely dependent upon an AI system, so that’ll be interesting
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 22 2016 18:14
i’ll post the project up to a private github and share the prototype in the next week or so
speaking of…i feel as though there’s a bit of hsl missing in my life (just a whim, perhaps)
just set up gitignore (me= level up) xD
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 18:20
if you are talking about 'guess the rgb' it'll have to wait xD School starts in a little over a week and I have lots of things I need to finish up before that starts. :anguished:
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 22 2016 18:28
ha understood
that’s exciting; i love school
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 18:32
hate when people knock on my door. don't "they" know I'll never answer.

this automation stuff is so cool
Jonathan Herman

Aug 22 2016 19:09
@Lilyheart I just bought an xyz through dreamhost, how long does it take for it to show up as registered through them
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 19:21
registration usually happens pretty quickly. The issue is DNS propagation. It can take quite awhile for your domain address to show up in a browser (and varies by connect, e.g. I might be able to load a page, but you can't as you don't have an updated DNS address).
@lantech19446 for the text above. I'm so bad at tagging sometimes.
@SimplyPhy I know!
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 19:22
hmm ok, thanks
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 19:27
ok it seems to have shown up now but how on earth do I get into it to edit it?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 19:28
Did you only register the domain? It has to be hosted somewhere to edit.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 19:29
oi ok, this is so different than what I'm used too lol
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 19:30
registering a domain and hosting a domain are two different things. What you saw on google sites was the hosting side.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 19:31
I can't actually sign up for the google apps without being able to edit it lol
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 19:31
I'm confused. Edit what?
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 19:33
they require me to add a meta tag to my site in order to prove that I own the site
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 19:39
Do they give you an option when signing up (for google apps) for something that looks like "CNAME record"?
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 19:42
looks like it I'm working through it right now
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 19:42
okie. CNAME updates you should be able to do without hosting.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 22 2016 19:46
we'll see if that works. They don't use proper terms for a cname record so I'm assuming I put things in where they should be.
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 20:34
@SimplyPhy you around?
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 22 2016 20:35
ish — what’s up?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 20:35
curr dev verison [not mobile friendly]
that link'll work until I stop the gulp watcher tho, so might die soon-ish
No ability to switch.. yet. I have to rethink the interface to get it to fit.
Which I have to do anyway, because mobile looks like :poop:
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 20:43
lemme know when you are done xD Cuz I have an HTML file to save and when I do it'll reset the browersync xD
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 22 2016 20:44
ha i like it :D
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 20:44
gonna be broken for a min
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 22 2016 20:44
aww it went bye byes
getting my hsl on
:beefcake:
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 20:44
need to get the mode switch listener in xD
you are literally looking at the live dev version
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 22 2016 20:47
playing a live dev version*
:P
ha just saw it flash
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 20:48
tryin' to time my saves
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 22 2016 20:48
(and reset my game :( )

damnit, i was about to be victorious :D

oh noes! broken. bug report
0/5 stars
“great game but crashed; dev wouldn’t respond to my emails"
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 20:51
which means I need to fix the error handling of eslint still.
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 22 2016 20:54
blast
well i’m done with it for now
already my hsl skills are boosted :D
i’ll get back into the action soon
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 20:55
The dropdown selector works now. Just a few tweaks and i'll push to prod xD
y/n reset the circles and the winner after changing the selection?
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 22 2016 20:55
muhaha
sounds reasonable
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 22:03
It's pushed to live... but mobile is still :poop: and hex has a bug. oops
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy

nice, the game is once again in championship mode
i shall deem it: help thee to learneth to see
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 22 2016 23:29
xD Thanks. I have to totally rethink the interface now. But I like where it's going.
Oh, and rgb to hsl math sucks. But I think coming up with the rgb colors and then just displaying the winner number in the correct model the most DRY way of doing it.
