Counting more Art

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.

Art Comments

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.

Life Things

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.

Slight artjustments

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.

More art-counting

 

Hello! Here’s another update about the art-counter system! Just in case that interests anyone besides me! (Seems unlikely)

Honest Work!

A short update about what’s been happening recently.

Hello! As usual it’s been a while since the last entry. Almost 2 months.

But I’ve been busy with things, also as usual. I have a number of my own projects to do, websites to work on, applications to develop, other things. I also now have a job. My first real job, at least as far as I’m concerned. Continue reading “Honest Work!”

Art for points

This entry is about how drawing something daily, which I realized I’d probably not be able to keep up with, lead to me creating a website for myself that would keep track of how much I’m supposed to have drawn.

This is the history of that site, and how it’s changed (pretty rapidly)

Arts

I’d be surprised if anyone actually noticed, but I removed the links to the gallery pages that were on here a while ago. Try as I might I haven’t been able to find a good gallery plugin for WordPress. Not good according to me at least. The best one I’ve found so far, and the one I have installed right now is NextGen Gallery. But while it works fine I haven’t been able to find one that lets you browse images in a  way I like.
