Diablo Bot

I am putting my Java bot on hold for a little bit. I am instead going to play some more Diablo III: Reaper of Souls on my PS3. I have been watching a lot of Game Grumps on YouTube on my PS3 as well!

I want to get netflix and/or the WWE Network. Both are pretty much $10 bux so I might be able to get one… but which one shall I get? Maybe I should get both? I don’t know! :-(.

Programming this bot comes after my gaming! Oh yeah, I am looking forward to a bonfire… yay! 100 words is enough!

Sun Burnt Bot

The sun burn I acquired in Kansas City is pretty much gone. All that is left is a bunch of peeling skin. I have decided to wait until next month before I go swimming again. When I do I plan on going during a free swim day; I do not want to shell out five dollars to take a dip in a pool. I could go to another pool for only four dollars, but I would have to work around the trolley schedule to take me home… not going to happen, folks! Yes I have no car and have to rely on public transportation, but I do have a reason! I have a pretty bad seizure disorder and I am not allowed to drive a car, truck, or pretty much anything shy of a bicycle.

Change of subject! I have started work on my latest programming challenge: an IRC bot written in Java. For this I will need to master sockets and dive even further into polymorphism. Polymorphism won’t be too much of a challenge. The real pain comes in reading and writing sockets successfully. When I get part of it up and running, I will make a Git Hub page for it. So far I just have a skeleton. When the program is run it prints out “It is working!” Over the next few days I plan on tackling reading input and making output while keeping a sound working structure. As my friend/mentor told me, “The only way to learn is to take on difficult tasks and challenge yourself.”

Big KC Update

Hi there! I arrived in Kansas City, MO last Thursday and am scheduled to return to Joplin this coming Saturday. So far it has been a blast. I have seen many of my family and friends and have had a great time!

On Friday we had a shabbatt and it was great; looking forward to the next Friday!

On Saturday my Aunt, Uncle, and 10 year old cousin went to the Nelson-Atkins museum and spent an hour or two there… great fun!

Yesterday my Aunt, Uncle, and 10 year old cousin went and saw Captain Underpants. You know it’s a good movie when the lead antagonist’s name is “Professor Pooppants”. I’d give the movie a 9/10.

If all goes well this Thursday my Cousin Pat, cousin Josh and myself will get a chance to see the World War I museum… I look forward to it!

Lonely Stuffs and KC Buffs

Well I am still pretty lonely; I miss having a lady friend. On the plus side, I should be on my way to see family and friends up in Kansas City, MO! The trip is scheduled for next Wednesday, May 31. I get to visit my Jewish Aunt & Uncle along with the multitude of cousins I have up there. Aunt and Uncle range from 71 to 66 and my cousins from age ~46 down to 18. I can’t wait to get out of town for a week and visit them all! :-)

Last night the power went out for most of the West part of town. I was at a friend’s house at the time, but my mother informed me of the incident. Pretty scary since the tornado hit Joplin about six years ago! Well we are all okay now so all is well :-)

Re-Inaugural

Revamped my blog. The last post I had was about 1.5 years old; out with the old content, in with the new! I promise this time I will post more often! I have disabled comments because I want this blog to be purely my own thoughts. If you insist on voicing your opinion, send me an e-mail at agardner210@gmail.com or by any other outlet advertised in my Contact page.

I spend most of my days either working out, playing on my gaming consoles, or programming random crap with Python or C#. I am also in the works of remaking my comic book collection database in Excel; I lost my old one somewhere. All my backups turned out nothing!

I fixed my Gamecube! With my Gamecube fixed, I will start a new file on Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door! I also plan on getting a new file on Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. Call me silly, but I simply love the Paper Mario games.
