I am just cruising thru the class now.  Understanding everything on one pass, getting the assignments done quickly, and having a good time with it.  I am 64% done with the class according to Udemy.  Parts of it I will be going back over when I am done, but overall I have a good feeling about my ability to make a website.  It’ll be a slow process when I first start, but once I get going I figure it will be easy.  HTML and JavaScript and jQuery are all easy, CSS, well, I have a book and online documentation.  Bootstrap is well documented online too.  The instructor went far beyond the scope of what I thought we were gonna learn and we are now learning APIs and how to get info from other people’s servers (with their permission of course).   I am learning a lot, I am actually absorbing a lot of what I am learning too.  It’s cool.  Udemy does a good job of getting instructors who know their stuff to do these video classes.  There is a reason they just hit 30,000 customers.  On Facebook I get an advertisement for $10.00 Udemy classes, on Udemy itself, they are $12.99 right now.  If I decide to take another class, I will be sure to link thru the Facebook ad.


The brutal cold is about over, gonna be in the 40s and 50s this weekend, then mellow out to normal winter temps (20s and 30s).  I can handle those temps.   -50+ wind chills and the -23 temperature I can live without.   The weird effect of global warming, turning most of Canada and America into a frozen wasteland.


I got ahold of a MacBook Air to do those parts of the class the required one.  Yeah, buddy, thank you mysterious benefactor.  So, I will be going back and doing those parts of the class over too.  I am learning this stuff, now I am gonna go back and see if I learned from just listening.  I think I did, but not as well as if I could have done the steps with her.  But its all good, I have the MacBook Air and forever to go back over the class.  So, it’s all good.


Teresa says Kingdom Hearts 3 is as good as Kingdom Hearts 1.  She says she likes the art, even though it seems somewhat outdated.  I still think a lot of it looks bad compared to games like Horizons which came out last year and was stunning to look at most of the time.  Oh well, I am not playing KH3, so I am not gonna worry about it.  Nope.  Doesn’t bother me at all.


I used my Airpods last night to do the class on the MacBook while Teresa played her game.  They lasted almost exactly three hours before conking out.  The conked out at a good point, so it wasn’t too much of a drag.  Except for the drag that I got exactly three hours from a five hour supposed headset.  Oh well, they work really well when they work, so I am limited to three hours.  Most of the time I am done with whatever I am doing after an hour or two, so this shouldn’t be much of an issue.


I don’t THINK I am gonna add any more to my idea.  Since most of my idea deals with the website, and I am doing the website (first real website), I have to come to a point where I say No More.  The site is gonna be big as it is, it was big when I first had the inkling, and every idea I have had has added to how big the site is.  So I have to cut of my ideas at some point, and that point was today.  Now, in reality, if I come up with a really killer idea to add, I will.  But for the regular, run of the mill ideas, I am done.


I am really wishing that time would move a little quicker.  It really seems to be dragging and that’s no good.  I’m sure some people think time is flying by and the wish it would slow down.  Not for me.  6 days till Biopsy.  Then 2 to 3 weeks for results.  27 days max.  I can do this.


I think I fell for a scam on those $69.00 monitors.  Massdrop, the company who makes the monitors has no record of me buying anything.  And BMTI claims no knowledge of ever selling Massdrop monitors.  Lesson learned (again), if the deal looks too good to be true, then it’s probably a scam.  I wish it wasn’t, those monitors would have been sweet.  But alas I do not think they are coming anymore.
