2018-05-08 13:07:46 apache! php! mysql! on a chromebook! Hello! It is frustrating that sometimes you have to revisit a problem with a good load of patience. If you don't understand something (linux) you must surrender yourself to bash snippets you find on stackoverflow. It's not bad, but it in the real world, if you have trouble with a specific skill, you are usually able to self-correct through observation, criticism and practice. This does not seem to be the case for some types of systems at all.
2018-04-20 13:24:36 back to reality So I'm trying to program some "thing" everyday. It is definitely better if I have a concrete purpose. But I do not feel in a hurry to do that just yet. It is fine just to program for a bit. I forget how much fun I have by playing with JS. It can get so meta it has sometimes made my brain hurt. In any case, writing an html helper library is good enough. Why would I write a web site in JS? No idea. But I already have a php_toolbox, might as well build a js_toolbox.

2017-12-01 19:10:38 Hello Micro.blog! This should be my first post that is "syndicated"(?) on micro.blog. Honestly, this is a test. I apologize for mixing a test with real content. But, i mean, if a program is data and data is data, why cant a test be content? well because it's boring content, which is why I'm just filling in the rest of this textarea with some minutes of philotec. I hope you have enjoyed.
2017-11-21 23:23:35 daily blog post

So I have been trying to use this chromebook for my regular web development (this means for my regular web-toy tinkering, because I do not have a job as a developer, which completely changes the importance of all of these things in my life, but i digress...). What I have found up to now is a payed subscription to the ShiftEdit online editor/ftp service. It has more features like github integration and I can add an unlimited amount of servers it seems, but this comes at the hefty cost of $6/month.

Honestly it's not bad at all, but there has to be a better way, so I got the sFTP client chrome app. It looks like a regular ftp client aka filezilla but it seems to be very lacking in features. The license cost 5 bucks but for some reason I could not get my client activated.

I also tried using sftp on the shell but even that was not working >_<... I need to keep exploring.

2017-11-18 04:24:35 daily blog post sometimes it's important to write for a long while. other times it's just important to jot down quick notes. what is truly important is to express oneself. to forget the standard and the structure and the algorithm and just key away for a bit.
2017-11-17 05:23:34 distractions I bought a $120 chromebook.

I am afraid of this thing and it's ability to send information to it's master. But also, "hacking" it was interesting. Interesting because it was easy, and it made me feel like I want to start tackling linux. By tackling i mean staring at it. But staring at it is better than not staring at it when your desire is to understand it. Playing with it is definitely better, but staring at it is a start.

I have also been working on listogether.com, which was definitely not my priority. My priority is to get a website producing some money. At least enough to make it self-sustainable. I'm already paying about 1 buck a year to domain-squat on some almost-funny properties. So I should at least try to make some of them. I just keep getting distracted.

Also, trump makes people distracting. I hope this is a good thing in the end. I choose to believe that this is for the good of me, my family and the people who think like me, who will be dragged through the mud to put humanity in the stars. I must do my part and this is the current form.
