    Posted 2 May 2016

    Woot, got 1 step closer to my HTTP server refactor completing! I can now have more than 1 HTTP server in a process at a time (thanks to eliminating the singletons I had in the code).

    Now I just need to rename some classes, get it all set up for my event-based communication and shared-object module loading, and then the refactoring will be "done"! After that, the plan is to add cookie support, and multi-part form data support, followed by SSL/TSL support (it already has websocket support - go figure :) ).

    Caffeine is such a weird drug. Totally destructive, yet since it makes us better little worker bees it's pushed on us. Nevermind the hypertension and anxiety it causes, nevermind the withdrawal symptoms - just caffeinate! Take your soma and you'll feel fine! Hell we give it to children.

    Caffeine is a hell of a drug!

    Indeed it is. I actually find that when I am _off_ caffeine I feel way better and don't have nearly the same difficulty waking up in the mornings. Sadly, coffee is also always around, whereas water for tea isn't (especially at my house where we have a single coffee pot and it is almost always filled with coffee; at work it is easier since we have a hot water dispenser).

    During the week, I typically drink 1 to 2 cups of coffee a day and then tea afterwards (closer to 1 if there is good tea available). Over the weekend though... that goes to a dark place, and I wind up having something like 4 cups of coffee a day because there isn't anything else available.

    Been playing a bit of the Paragon beta, I think they may have managed to make the game overly complicated with the cards and trying to determine _what_ they actually do. Even the ability descriptions aren't as descriptive as I'd like.
  4. In Topic: What was the last movie you watched?

    Posted 25 Apr 2016

    I watched Lucy over the weekend. Not a bad film, different from what I was expecting, but definitely thought-provoking.

    ... Well, staying up and getting websockets working once more on my server last night turned out to be a bad idea. Got to sleep ~1 last night, my dogs woke me up at 5:30 this morning wanting food, which I got for them and then wound up opening up the house and turning the fan on because it was freaking hot in there. Then at about 6 the demon birds outside my window decided it was time to squawk (what a strange word) and closing the window didn't help. Then at 7 one of my roommates decided to get up and take a shower.

    So, I am counting last night as ~5 hours of sleep total. Came in to work just to find both pots of coffee empty, and had to make fresh ones (not necessarily a bad thing, but I was hoping for faster caffeine than that). And there is a work crew jack-hammering outside the windows closest to me.

    No problem. I love JavaScript so it isn't anything terribly difficult. The hardest part is to come up with challenges that will get people interested and not scare everyone away until we at least are a bit more known :)

    I think there are a few people who like IE, but we are the minority. I use it because I have grown up with it, it acts the most as I would expect it to (out of the major browsers) and I have grown accustom to its little quirks. Everyone talks about building things for FF then hacking for IE, but I find that Opera, IE, Chrome, and Sarafi normally work very close to the same, and FF is the outlier.

    Serious Question(s): Are you the only user who prefers IE over all of the other browsers? I haven't seen anyone else with that marked...
    Also, why do you prefer it?
