So, as usual the frequency at which I write these is severely lacking. I should try to write more.
A significant thing has happened since the last post, I’ve moved! I moved out of my parents house, after roughly 26 years of living there (I’m 28, the first two years we lived in an apartment). Continue reading “The First Move”
Went out bowling with my girlfriend and a group of friends last weekend. First we had a nice meal at the restaurant.
The bowling didn’t go well at first, and didn’t seem to go very well overall, but then I ended up winning somehow anyway, although the margin probably wasn’t that large. But still.
Always a nice surprise to win at something I guess. I continue to annoy my girlfriend by being surprisingly good at bowling. I’m sure she’ll end up winning at some point.
We’re supposedly going to have a go again in about a month, as 3 out of the 6 of us have our birthdays pretty close together. We’ll see how it goes then!
I need to look up how scoring works in bowling.
Listening to our 20+ year old cat yell somewhere in the house makes me want to cry. I don’t want to listen to him anymore, but I don’t want him to go away either.
…makes for a great improvement.
I recently had a bit of an epiphany on how to vastly improve how my portal page looks.

So, the art-counter site broke slightly a few days ago. Nothing serious though.
I had just made a new drawing for the first time in quite a while (96 days) and when I added it to the counter I noticed that it hadn’t underlined the times and made them copy-able like it was supposed to.

Yesterday night I installed a plugin for Disqus on my art site and connected it to my account. That means it’s now possible to post comments on my art.
Disqus requires logging in either with a Disqus account, facebook, twitter or google. So if you want to comment you need one of those. I like having comments on things. I like comments. As long as they’re useful or insightful of course, but I don’t mind non-useful comments either, but I’m not very likely to respond to those.
I do mind bad comments though, such as pointless hate or threats or such. That’s a given.
Can I re-iterate how happy I am to have Zandra? Am I allowed to do that?
A not-so-brief update on my life.
I’ve not written anything in a while. I realize I didn’t have a distinct plan for this blog thing when I set it up. It seems I’ve decided it’ll be a mix of personal stuff and posts about various projects.
Things are happening, good things! I just left a part-time job, that I held for about a month and a half, for a full time job at a place I worked earlier this year. At the time they weren’t able to keep two programmers on board, but now the other programmer left for a different job and I got to replace him.

In the previous post I detailed how the modifiers have the ability to multiply the score bonus which is how it worked when I wrote the article. About a day after writing it though I changed how modifiers work. I decided that the multiplication business was too complicated.
Now a modifier just has one value, this value is multiplied by the input (such as the number of characters) and added to the total. The minimum threshold determines if the modifier should be displayed in the log or not. There is no point printing 1 character to the log. But anything above that will show.
That’s pretty much it, except some minor adjustments to the interface.
Hello! Here’s another update about the art-counter system! Just in case that interests anyone besides me! (Seems unlikely)
