GTK+ & Windows XP
Remember that C course I was talking about? Well part of it is to create a final project in which you choose from a list of libraries to make an application that does what ever you decide. I chose the OpenCV library and so far I think I want to make something that detects objects from a video stream of a webcam. That’s nice and all, but I also decided that I needed a GUI for said app. And...
2013: THE PRESENT FUTURE
Oh hello blog that I’ve been regularly ignoring. It is currently the second day of the new year and I am writing this during the last moments I have in Nevada for a while. Fall semester of school ended with me being sick taking finals and generally being miserable. Luckily, the misery didn’t last long as I had a nice Christmas with the fam and experienced snow in a way that made me...
ORIGINAL BLOG KILLER
So uh… it’s been a while since I last posted, but I graduated from Hackbright and am currently on my way to getting a Java certificate. Through the kindness of others, I was able to magicke up a Twiliocon ticket! Today I skipped my pre-calculus class (sorry old Russian professor!) and arrived bright and early to get to know the Twilio API. The morning talks were both interesting and...

How I Learned to Hate Flask
Okay, so the title may be a bit dramatic, but I definitely yelled many curse words at my poor laptop yesterday while attempting to complete the Flask tutorial. The objective at hand was initially to install Flask itself. First off, I was at a slight disadvantage due to the laptop in question being a Windows machine. I don’t have Linux/Unix. I didn’t start with the correct version of...

It is made up of sounds created by positioning the tongue in the mouth and vibrating the vocal chords while exhaling. Somehow words were assigned to specific objects around people in order to communicate with...
Vincent Gallo Sells His "Charms" →
If you are a very rich lady who enjoys building up a misogynistic man’s ego by subjecting yourself to arranged “intimate” moments for a fee and also look Aryan, maybe this link would be good for you to check out. Otherwise, this is a hilarious attempt an actor is making to be his own pimp. Is he really this strapped for cash? Is this really a business endeavor? I have many, many...

My community college might be shutting down… Good thing I’m registering for classes tomorrow!
For the past two weeks I have been learning how to code in an innovative educational start-up called Hackbright Academy that was created to improve the unbalanced ratio of male to female programmers. The instructors are teaching accelerated software programming to 12 very ambitious, intelligent women. I am proud to be one of their students and to be working with such interesting people. We learn...
Spotify is so good– Mark Zuckerberg, apparently stroking someone else’s ego for once.
Hey, I finally succumbed to downloading Spotify. I...
