- HEALTH TRACKER
Have not yet found a Django tutorial that starts close to 0.
Started going through Udacity's CS 101 which seems to have a path to a web framework but not sure which one yet.
Planning on going to a meeting with about a hundred web developers tonight and to the loop before that.
All of that and still feeling very curmudgeonly, snarly, and negative this morning.
Can we just keep Sunday for this whole week. I could actually use a month of Sundays. Having finished the Rice class I now am in a funk. The class gave me a purpose but now that is finished I am floundering. Another meaning of floundering might actually be fun but I have no funds to get to the gulf coast where I know floundering is good. Rebuilding my skills to the newer technology is a good goal and Django and pygame are still likely the way to go with that and the hacking groups should become more and more interesting with my newly acquired Python skills. These skills and the ones for web interfaces yet to be learned will translate into marketable skills. The rebuilding of confidence and marketability of Randy are yet to be determined. After so long with my circadian rhythm disorder and the lack of human contact as well as the excess eating and all of the physical problems being worked out the continued uphill climb to change other replacement negative behaviors seems overwhelming.
OK, I goofed off since Tuesday night and gave a short talk:
Time to finish my coding project after my morning stroll.
How about you all.
I got my lectures and quiz done and moved on to phase one of coding.
Went to urgent care with Cheryl after she got off work yesterday. X-rays showed no fractures. Plan is to stay off of it and wear a brace while working from home the next day or so and make an ortho appt for Friday which she can cancel if it gets better.
On to coding phase two and then a trip to the loop this afternoon and a hack at the merchandise mart tonight.
How about you?
Yesterday was diverted because I had forgotten I had to do peer reviews for five classmates spaceship programs. That and Cheryl caught a fuzzy slipper in the elevator gate, fell, and kept wanting to go to the ER for her ankle. Alternate hot and cold was my alternative. She seems to be moving pretty good this morning but keeps saying ow. We both do that a lot. So yesterdays task will hopefully get done today. And hopefully Cheryl will not need to see our PCP today.
Yep, I have been in a crisis of faith for about six months now. I have long seen a building of very humanistic tendencies in folks saying they are following Christ and it has finally overwhelmed the spiritual side.
Father's Day! Hard for me to think about that as a single person after 33 years of marriage. It is also my youngest 26th birthday. Being selfish if I were single and dating someone where the exact nature was yet to be determined I think I would enjoy a new Taz t-shirt, a lunch and a wish that all Father's and daughters might find a way to clean up their lives and love each other through anything that could not be cleaned up.
Mostly the wish though!
Surgeon visit went well yesterday. Everything is still healing nicely though a big cough or sneeze will give me a moments pause and getting up in the mornings is still accompanied by a bit of discomfort.
My spaceship turns and accelerates in the direction it is turned and has fire and noise. I will add friction today though there is no friction in space. That was what the profs decided to do instead of finely tuned thrusters on the sides. I remember the announcers for the space program teaching us about yaw but not the other word. I will move on to rocks and maybe missiles today.
Follow up at the surgeon's office today. I have to remember to ask if I can ride my bicycle and what if anything to do before going to the dentist. I will work on my spaceship this morning and goof off in the loop after my appointment until a networking meeting at The Bar Down Under.
How about you?
Well guess what. I will take a stroll this morning and then listen to some music while I work on this weeks programming assignment. I finished the tasks yesterday for this week that normally take me until Thursday so I can get out to Groupon for a lunch time meeting today that proves to be of a less technical nature. It is called How to Hack a Conversation and will be basically about improving conversational techniques to make them more enjoyable for others.
Weather is crazy for June.
What are the others of you doing today before some rain shows up again.
Need to get out to Wal-mart today. Also need to start on the next weeks lectures.
I see Crystal has not checked in. I just RSVP'd to a function at Groupon and Meetup said someone coming knew Crystal. It's a small world after all.
We saw a few people running from the rain yesterday afternoon. I finished my project so we had a late lunch at Hot Woks and Cool Sushi on Michigan then went out the red to Argyle to get some Vietnamese duck and take out. Back on the red to the Sheridan stop which id Irving Park and it was fourteen minutes until the next bus and seven minutes until the rain so we caught a bus going east for a stop. Turned out we could have just stayed on as that was the bus we ended up catching going west. There was a tree that provided some initial cover but we still got a little wet. Everything was busy with Maifest revelers.
Remember it will not work in Internet Explorer.
Up at 4 today.
Cannot turn on my light until 5am.
Blackjack step had me beaten from 4:30 until 7 pm. I finally tried something I did not think would work and goes completely against my idea of an optimized program.
If you are using Firefox or Chrome it is actually playable. There is a lot I need to add to it today though.
What about you?
It looks to me like OH is concentrating on advertising to those who are obese and not really being very picky about that. Building environments for those of us who want the post up does not seem to be one of their top priorities and so they likely try to get away with as few resources as they can.
I really do not think that much about what classes I will take. I just consider what I want to learn next and then look around for it. What I really need if I am successful with this in the next few days and weeks is work but more than likely will move on to Django which is a web frame work(What you see on a web site) written in Python.
Python is just one of these. It is a programming language and used by many companies. My thought is that many folks these days use computers. Not sure if this thought includes you. Just like there are folks that ride in, drive, repair, build and design cars the same is true of computers and computer languages.
