Well, obviously I dropped the blogging thing. However, I did keep it up for a good while and i'm still proud of that. And anyway, I physically couldn't do it for a while due to ISP issues and the like, blah blah.

Now, though, I wanna shamelessly self promote my project Alibi. It's nothing special, but the codebase is really solid and if you happen to wanna run an AO2 server, you'll probably find it very nice (barring the bugs haha)

SoftCobra Scraper

March 6, 2021 - Reading time: ~1 minute

Scrapes the SoftCobra switch page and dumps all the links both unencrypted and resolved so no tinyurl links (This is slow and shit btw)

Heres the link

needs python 3, modules are: bs4 pytesseract Pillow js2py numpy and needs tesseract OCR to be installed and setup with a language.

Missed a day again

Been spending this weekend doing none of the things I said I would do. However I'm very much enjoying my break, more than most weekends, so I guess thats good. I am, however, gonna use a different kanban and finally get that shit working. And I'm also gonna use this kanban to keep track of my ideas I have for projects, since i've been having a lot lately and I don't wanna forget. 

In other news; I did well in my classes and I passed. So I guess I can get away with cramming at the end of the trimester (thanks school for teaching good habits). Next trimester might suck a lot, though. I got some shitty teachers I don't particularly want to deal with, in a class that I can't cheese nearly as easily as the last time I had that teacher. 

Tomorrow I finish my shit.

Hopefully ill get the last thing done tomorrow. Then I really need to get off my fuckin ass and get something productive done for my hobby projs...

2 More shits to get done.

Tonight im gonna grind out one more summative, then the last will get done tomorrow.

To actually have something to show, here's the fucking AWESOME phone theme I found based around Persona 5. I'm even hacking together a modified widget to replace that kinda icky looking one in the top left.

Kinda stressed about the shit I gotta get done but I'm still on pace. 

In other news, I wrote a SoftCobra scraper for a friend. needs Node + Npm installed, Tesseract OCR, and the pip modules bs4, pytesseract, Pillow, js2py, and numpy.

I should be on track to get all my shit done in time, I gotta hella study or smthn for a test tho. 

After this week I wanna try and start that lesser scope project. We'll see.

This week I need to grind out all the schoolwork before the trimester ends. I got 1 test and 3 projects to my knowledge.

Nothing to say, just mildly stressed.

Silly Plans

So today I ran around everywhere with my mom trying to check out ATMs so she could show me how they worked. That was fun an educational I guess.

In other, more exciting news, I can't wait to get my mobo because I think it'll tear ass at a lot of things i've been trying to do lately, like running Persona 5 or not shitting the bed running Enigmatica 2. Heres to hoping I can get my work to let me squeeze in some more time. I also should make sure to solidify my choice in motherboard.

Need to work on something

February 26, 2021 - Reading time: ~1 minute

The thing that I thought might happen if I started blogging every day did happen. Every post since day 1 has been "nothing interesting happened", so I should really get around to fixing that. Still want to do that big project but I might start out with a smaller scope project suggested by a friend. This would involve learning Rust, and more specifically game engines in Rust, which sounds.......... like making a game in Rust. So I'm a little apprehensive about that but oh well. For now i'll just skip to using a public Kanban like Trello, probably. Would love to self host it but SQL just doesnt like me. Or maybe PHP doesnt like me, idk.

If cookie's reading this, hmu.

Fucked my phone so I had to go a few days without it, which feels off. I like to think I can live fine without it but I feel very unable, in general. Now it's fixed though, I just reflashed the entire thing lol. Tried to find a custom OS I liked but I think I might like the old one better. We'll see how the performance is later when im actually daily driving it. I might switch back to ResurrectionRemix (am using Sakura, and this is a Moto G7 Power).

In other news, hopefully I'll be able to not fuck up high school and pass. Almost all the shit I need to pass is turned in and I have a week ish to go. Future Elijah: get some shit done over the weekend!

Anyway, not much to write about today. Looking cool, Joker.

Missed a blog post but its fine

February 24, 2021 - Reading time: 3 minutes

Gonna write an extra long one today as punishment. I'd call it fair though as I was going through some shit. Enough about me though, lets hear more about me.

STILL trying to set up that damn kanban, might switch to something stupid like github or trello, we'll see. Having a lot of issues with user permissions and shit, since I run my nginx server off of a different user, same one I run the php-fpm server off of. Seems phpMyAdmin just doesn't wanna be able to write anywhere? And it's really confusing to set up in the first place honestly. Plus now Solo (the first kanban I planned to try) permanently thinks I have a solo database, despite wiping both it and the MariaDB database, and now it won't create a new one to get past the setup process. Gonna try a few other boards first but I might have to scrap this entirely like I said.

Also been dabbling with VRChat and it's SDK. Seems fun to fuck with a node-based programming language, since easy, low-scope languages make doing sick shit with them even more satisfying. Not sure though, I wanna keep my focus on my bigger project for now. Lots of shit has been running through my head lately, too much. Too many things I wanna make with not enough motivation to do them. I should really make a kanban for my life lmao. 

I'm a bit groggy right now so excuse the ramblings but i'll do what I want it's my page. Also my mind is literally all over the place, lots of emotions, lots of plans, lots of useless thoughts, and too, too, too much music. Don't stop the music tonight

Oh yeah, also. I've been trying to get more comfy in a command line environment. Since i'm stuck in PHP hell anyway I might as well set up a chair and grab a beer, so I learned how to use tmux (with my own configuration, fuck prefixes honestly) and I like it a lot. Feels like a desktop with terminal emulators if you squint your eyes and try hard enough. Sadly I can't really try and fully switch to Linux until Proton really kicks off but it does seem like that's gonna happen soon, given the latest kernel patch having specific features in place for DRM and whatnot. Seems the penguin army finally wants to make gaming on linux something we can really get away with these days.

Server maintenance epic

February 22, 2021 - Reading time: ~1 minute

Today I set up a bunch of server subdomains and shit because I wanna serve a self hosted kanban. Can't figure out how the shit MariaDB or phpMyAdmin work though... I'll get it eventually, hopefully.

tip: there's this really nice tool called Butterfly that provides a really nice xterm-compliant terminal in the browser that I use for maintaining my server from school/other places. It nicely forwards system keystrokes, especially if you make it into a chrome app. Do note though that to copy and paste you use CTRL SHIFT C/V, which is technically standard but is less common with web based terminals in my experience because of the browser's global keyboard shortcuts. 

I wanna have a kanban because im gonna try and do a bigger long term project with many starting points and shit. We'll see how that goes. Today kinda sucked a lot but its monday so you know.

Today was semi cool since I'm getting 2/3rds of my computer upgrade, very excited about that. Will have to (probably) wait a while before that can actually be realized tho.

My epic pc parts (ryzen 5 5600x, msi mpg x570 gaming plus (may change), and gskill trident z neo 2x8 3600mhz b-die ram)

In other news, I got my siblings to laugh at my mom about calling people a "stupid dumb little baby" for an hour, so I feel like an accomplished brother.

Starting a commitment for once

February 21, 2021 - Reading time: ~1 minute

I'm gonna commit to writing 1 blog post a day for say... a month. I'll see where I wanna go from there but for now, future Elijah, you gotta do this shit til 3/21/2021.

I have no requirements for what the post needs to contain as some days my brain just cant fire enough neurons to compose something pretty and legible. So I have some nice categories on the sidebar there to let you filter the kinda stuff you wanna see. If I make any progress in my coding endeavors ill be sure to post about the better projects here.

Edit: I'm doing this because I think it may help with my motivation as a quantifiable reminder of how much time I waste on a given day. Idk if it'll work but thats the hope at least. Plus it might give me a creative outlet when my motivation for programming is low but i need to spew my thoughts somewhere.
