Hi All,
Does anyone have advice on creating downloadable podcasts for android users ? The podcasts must be available for weekly downloading for android devices. Any ideas?

podcasts are just something I could never get into. I've tried. I remember the last time I tried there was an app I used which automatically downloaded the podcast when it was available. The app was called Pocket Casts (and seemed like a popular choice, several youtube techy people I watch show this app when they do the "whats on my phone" videos. I would suggest you start by finding out what you would need to do for someone to be able download the podcast from an app like Pocket Casts.

I love the very beginning of school when you are wide eyed and hopeful... you know, before the crushing reality of it all. :school:

@VictorHall I think you can use soundcloud for that
So unless you’re asking how to make a podcast, then I think just posting it to soundcloud is one way to get the job done

@Lilyheart if you keep the momentum alive and live your studies, the wide eyes never have to dim :D

Have you ever taken a full college course load? :laughing:

Hmmm... I think I'll polish off some misc code in the home automation tonight.
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 30 2016 20:39
yup; what i’m doing now is way more intensive than that ever was, outside of quick bursts of effort, most often forged from my procrastinative efforts
ugh
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart

Only one CIS class this semester.

All of them better than the sociology xD
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 30 2016 21:25
hmm
math, public speaking, sociology and CS; i like it :D
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 30 2016 21:26
sociology was last semester and was ugh but mostly because it was an accelerated class with weekly essays.
i dunt like writing

Howdy Jarrett. How goes your coding tonight?

well after doing alot of it at work i'm not sure. tonight might be a dinner, gym, couch evening.
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 30 2016 22:00
Heh. Sounds fun!
Jarrett Faulk
@Jarrett-Faulk
Aug 30 2016 22:02
although on the way home i might have started to formulate a new side project.
i'll have to write it out and see if it makes sense.
has anyone taken cis112 online with professor Jason Wertz?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 30 2016 22:03
I have it in the fall.
Not the online one though.
Jarrett Faulk
@Jarrett-Faulk
Aug 30 2016 22:06
okay so i'm off into the unknown. I've taken other classes with Jason so i'm sure the content will be excellent.
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 30 2016 22:07
This is my first class with him. I am very very excited.
Jarrett Faulk
@Jarrett-Faulk
Aug 30 2016 22:08
i am not excited about the dimensions of this text book.:(
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 30 2016 22:09
I know @ _ @ It rivals the precalc textbook.
I have the course on campus Tuesday & Thursday afternoons
Jarrett Faulk
@Jarrett-Faulk
Aug 30 2016 22:11
i've fallen into the online courses mostly for the schedule
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart

I know. Blech. Give me a computer and a basement and I'm happy.
Jarrett Faulk
@Jarrett-Faulk
Aug 30 2016 22:14
i've relocated in the building a work. i was denied the work from home option.
okay well i've got to get dinner. i might be back after the trip to the gym.

the "joy" of a customer facing position. I'm sorry.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 30 2016 22:38
eh it's ok, apparently I pissed them off enough by telling them that they were out of time for the day that they marched straight over to the borough to complain, and still didn't get more time on the computer
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 30 2016 22:39
heh
people are.... people.
Jonathan Herman

yep, can't live with them and the law frowns on trying to prevent them from living

Aug 30 2016 22:47
ya know there's one feature I really wish codepen had
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 30 2016 22:54
what's that?
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 30 2016 22:55
I really wish it maintained a history so that I save something and a couple steps later I mess it up but can't really remember what the code was when it was working I could revert back to it
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 30 2016 22:56
is it's past where ctrl-z is useful?
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 30 2016 22:57
I haven't really tried but I'm assuming it would be because I might be going backwards 5-6 steps similar to how undo would work in like word or excel
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 30 2016 22:58
I use that on copepen and in Atom. If I'm going back a ways, I might copy/paste the current code to notepad or a textdiff website (so I can see what I changed).
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 30 2016 22:59
it's a good idea, sometimes I remember to do that this time I kinda got caught up in something and it just slipped my mind
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 30 2016 23:01
Having a better "checkpoint" system is one reason why I've moved away from codepen for big coding projects and use GitHub/git. I usually c/p my final project into CodePen as it's great for a portfolio :p
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 30 2016 23:03
I may have to get into that habit myself, also need to learn github far better than I have
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 30 2016 23:04
best way to learn is to just use it honestly. And then when I break it, I learn something new when I fix it xD
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 30 2016 23:06
true true
I just learned something new in css too which fixed my previous problem
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 30 2016 23:07
awesome!
css is so huge
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 30 2016 23:08
yea all these display formats like inline-flex and in order to get my company name next to the image I used inline-block things like that.
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 30 2016 23:08
flexbox is awesome.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 30 2016 23:09
I finally got it to work the way I want it too I found a decent tutorial online
http://codepen.io/lantech19446/pen/rLXrXN
it actually doesn't look horrible on mobile either the image and company name fall underneath each other, I may eventually want to make it a bit more fancy on mobile but for right now I'd be happy with it

Taking the day off before classes start and playing some league of legends
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 30 2016 23:13
awesome. try a justify-content: space-between; or space-around in the .flexbox
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 30 2016 23:13
I had it set that way the first time but it didn't seem to do much, is that mobile-only?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 30 2016 23:15
@davidjcastner heh.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446

interesting it actually worked ok now, I must have had something competing with it before

You are taking Wertz 112 online right?
@javaJarrett is too
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 30 2016 23:17
I really hope that this site will work well, I wish I could make it look more refined but by the same token the simplicity should let the items stand out more.
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 30 2016 23:17
@lantech19446 the best (or worst) part of having your own site means you can update it as often as you like xD
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 30 2016 23:17
@davidjcastner fun fun, I don't recall their name but I had a wonderful history teacher at montco was an older man with a huge beard he made that class so much fun
true, it's just the more I look at shopify templates I love how clean and kind of classy they look but at the same time they're so busy
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 30 2016 23:19
pick your favorite parts and add 'em in. Atleast I find that is the best way I learn. Figuring out how to do something I want (vs random crappy assignments that I don't care about).
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446

true, wish I could learn js that way lol
