hmm
annoying how photobucket blurs the old picture, i don't mind the watermark on old images quite as much as the blur
perhaps a website that takes that into account and stores an image on photobucket, then when requested it gets the photobucket image and uses that data to reproduce the original?
not saying to unblur, but store the data in a different format that can be retrieved
still runs into the issue is what if that site goes down
At that point, you might as well just store it elsewhere to begin with.

This is why I host my own content.

I don't have to worry about the whims of uncaring third-party services.

They were probably victims of this incident which has since been resolved. If you are still worried you can use their checksums.
And if you're still worried, you can personally scrub through the source for anything you don't like, then compile it yourself.

wrong
It's a subtype of the many different types of heavy metal poisoning.
I didn't say it was likely. But neither is lead poisoning so long as you're only dealing with the raw metal or it's alloys.

Sardines in oil on saltine crackers is my go to for a quick meal when hiking.

Plenty of quick calories in a small package for cheap.
Although kippered herring is better.

-And documents it with glorious stop-motion and timelapse video.

There's something incredibly satisfying about this, so I thought I'd share it with everyone.

Enjoy.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone.
Especially considering BLF's usual toxic reputation.
I'm always glad to see that this place can be kind when it actually matters.

It looks though, like life isn't quite done pissing on me just yet.
I just had a 4TB drive fail. So now, not only do I have to replace a hard drive, I have to replace one of the most expensive drives I have.
So yeah. Not exactly better. But at this point, I'm not sure it matters.

I'll try to yet you know if it goes any further downhill.

If you click the "Clone or download" button, then hit "Download Zip", you'll get a .zip with all the files in it.

Then you just need to extract it and open the "rgbit.html" file in you browser.

Creativity / Simple JavaScript Browser Puzzle Game (Updated: 08/26)
« on: August 24, 2019, 07:42:44 PM »
I've been taking a course on web development and started making a game to test out my JavaScript.

There's not much to it, but it's interesting to play around with.

Have fun.

Updates (08/25/19):
Added new "CMYW" color mode.
Game now hides everything until the JavaScript has loaded.
Tweaked layout.
Fixed bugs.

Updates (08/26/19):
Added new "Timed" game mode.
Changed options menu functionality. (Pauses game, and changes the next round without affecting the current one.)
Tweaked layout.

So as some of you already know, a while back I went on a trip to visit my friend. Everything was going fine, until it wasn't...



I was tired, lost, and frustrated. I drove my civic off the road, hit a tree, and ripped out the rear suspension. My car was destroyed and I had to shell out over an extra $120 to pay for a hotel while I waited for someone to come out nearly 1000mi to get me.

I was broke, angry, and depressed. I had no money in the bank, and several hundred dollars that I still needed to pay off. Even still, me and my brother shelled out for a used Chevy Trailblazer, so that I would have something to get me around.

Then amidst all this, last week, my manager decided to fire me.

I don't know why. Naturally no one will tell me anything, but it probably had to do with an incident earlier that same morning that was caused by him changing the schedule without telling me. Something he is very prone to do.

So now, I have no money, aside from what's left of my savings, a, rather gross, unfamiliar vehicle, no job, and about $400 in credit card charges that I still need to pay off.

If this isn't justification for soul crushing depression, I don't know what is.

On the plus side. I have plenty of time to learn things like proper web development, something I've been meaning to do for years.

forget life...

Tin is a primary ingredient in the solders that are used to assemble and make all our electronics work.

It's also used to make canned peaches taste better.

Life's reminder as my birthday is coming up.
"You destroy everything you touch."

And people wonder why I never mention when it is.

Physically, I'm fine...

Now I have to recover from, not only this failed trip, but also probably loosing my car.

My job is such crap I might as well not even have a job. I'm never going to be able to recover from this bullstuff...
