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.”

Return Trip and More Java

I spent my last day in Kansas City, MO. in the pool. Five hours in the pool with no sunscreen. I have a pretty good size sunburn; most of it is on my shoulders and back. I swam 40 laps and played a bunch of water polo. It was glorious fun! I figure that it had better be fun——I spent $10 for a entrance fee!

I got a big bag of comic books from my cousin and her husband. I have no idea how many are in the bag, but it has to be more than 50! Means I need to expand my database…

I finished my password generator program in Java. I found my old book from high school from my ap programming class. I am going to re-read it in hopes that Java will come back to me. I need to relearn the concepts of OOP. My password program consists of three classes plus the main one, “Passwords.java”. I made a GitHub account to post my stuff on. There is only one on it at the moment, my generator. I hope people find it useful. I posted the source and the bin files. If you need help in running, or compiling the program, let me know on Facebook, IRC, or e-mail and I will help. The source is here, and the binary files are here. Enjoy!

WW1 Museum

Went to a World War I museum today; here are some pics.

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!
