Just another dull chapter in My Geek Life

I've been away for a while, but quite a lot has happened. I got an apartment and a job. I'm now working as a 'Web Advisor' in the call center at Bluehost, which some of you may know to be a web host. I like it there. I get treated nicely, and it's a lot of fun. Every once in a while, there is an an angry/distressed customer...

On multidimentional arrays

So today, I thought up a way to describe multidimentional arrays. It's probably not perfect, but it works for me. I had a friend make some renders that represent it perfectly.

Here's a single variable.

Here's an array with 3 subscripts

Some unfortunate news for me, and a fun theory on a mundane thing.

Job Corps, the trade school I was going to, is funded entirely by the Department of Labor. I was in what is known as the "College Program." I was getting room and board while I went to college and learned all the wonders of the computer world. But, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked. Several weeks ago, the DOL decided that...

Nearing the end of the first adventure

On the 21st or 22nd of last month (April), I started a class called "Introduction to Programming." The intention of the class is to teach students the basic structure and logic of programming. This includes things from creating flowcharts and pseudocode to loops and if statements to basic object-oriented programming. I was pretty...

Onto the main journey! (and a follow-up to the game I've been planning)

After a particularily stressful rush through the final chapter of Microsoft's "Software Development Fundamentals" textbook, I'm finally to the actual software development branch of the IT classes. The course I've started requires a book called "An Object-Oriented Approach to Programming Logic and Design." The name...

Confidence restored! Also, on the topic of Microsoft courses.

A while back, I watched a documentary called "Indie Game: The Movie." The documentary summed up the entirety of what I want to do with my life. I want to be able to influence people's childhoods as games such as Super Mario Brothers and Tetris did for so many. Several months after I had watched it, I had forgotten why I wanted to...

The hero of the story starts his training and gets discouraged.

Before I start, I was not saying that I'm any kind of hero or anything along those likes. I was imagining a character from some high-fantasy novel on the "Supernatural Aid" step of the Monomyth and using it as a very loose analogy to my current situation.

I am nearing the end of my core classes at DATC. I've got 'Software...

All this, just to re-size my partition?

When I got my new laptop (A Lenovo G780), my plans had been to remove Windows 8 and set up a multi-boot system of Windows 7 and Fedora. Before I get there, though, I'll give a bit of back story.

I had a ton of annoyances with the Start Screen, and the lack of even a registry value that would enable the comfortable Start Menu (such as the one...

This class is nearly finished.

I found out two different things during my Web Development Fundamentals class. Firstly, I found that there's a reason why the core classes include hardware, web development, software, and networking. It's so that people who don't know what they want to do will be able to generally figure out. It's also to help people who think...

Web Development Fundamentals

Icon Leave Comment
I finished my Strata Fundamentals class pretty easily. I got a 65/70 on the certification, but I think I could have done better had I not rushed through the test like I did. Now I'm enrolled in a "Web Development Fundamentals" class. I think I'll have a pretty easy time with this one, but I doubt it will be as easy as Strata...
