Artwork, Webcomics, Things, and Stuff… jakeis.com, doing things…
You might not know this about me, but I’m a notorious computer nerd; it’s almost to an Aspergerous level, but I’ve been tested for that. I’ve pair bonded with the machine just like Pilot and Moya the Leviathan (Farscape). Reading this blog you see much of me, but you don’t really know where I end and she begins. So tell me, what do you know about computers? Honestly, I’m just a web designer though. That is about 20 tiers below hacker.
I accidentally made your gmail a dot co instead of a dot com, and I tried to wish you a happy Canada day on the 2nd of July… July 7th… I want to die… jakeis.com “doing things”
Will Jake Jilg (me) get an Albinoblacksheep featured cartoon for the first time since 2008, this year in September? (fingers crossed!)
If not, we can always get a new (old) season of jakeis.com/germs going… It’s is my favorite self made web comics series (tooting my own horn). The universe is most definitely a toilet. If I posted germs to my landlord’s Facebook timeline, instead of army girl, maybe I’d still have an apartment.
EDIT: Seconds later, I realized I had to change some of the jQuery because it acted differently on my server, than in MAMP. It’s working now.
I already used this thing to make this ^ paper blackshirts skull out of four sheets of A4 letter paper, for my black curtain.
Just print “scale to paper” from Preview.app
I’m freaking out right now. I had this when I lived in the city. I thought it was something toxic in the apartment.
So I’m on this involuntary Abilify shot for depression and mood swings. My hands are tingly, my vision is like shaky-cam, and my lungs are being hit by my rapid heart. Last time I was like this was October of 2015. Then, I called a crisis hotline and she just told me to watch TV until it goes away. I started the Abilify shot that month, so I’m pinpointing that as the cause. It feels like when I used to smoke marijuana in 2003 (little kind nugs that look like parade horse poo). That was a thing I never liked, because it was like dying every time, but I had to be a cool, party kid, poser and kept doing it anyway. COLLEGE!
Changing the topic because everyone hates anxiety…
In other news: I’ve got quite a nice little dev portfolio going on; too bad, it’s for a kids’ game making software. Yet, this is the stuff I’ve been working on for the past few months and I’ve never really blogged about it.
So I’ve compiled a list of all the tutorials and script requests I’ve been doing on the RPG Maker forums. This list doesn’t include my plugin releases, which is something else I need to get on this WordPress.
Luckily my Greasyfork profile has been silent (neither greasy, nor a fork). I’ve seem to have fallen off the grid, so I have more time to work on kiddie codes.
I deleted my older Flash Pacman because this one is more quality and I don’t have a license for Flash. I also don’t think it’s funny to joke about Pacman popping pills and dying anymore, because things happened in my life since I made that dumb game…
A little about this game:
It’s just another stupid time waster like all my games. Mine is a throwback to the Atari Pacman because the board colors are random. The ghosts are real stupid, but they are also real vicious (go hard or go home). They seem to jump over corners to get you, but I assure you the collision is there in the grid; it just doesn’t look that way because of the CSS3 transitions I animate movement with, and I don’t know how to detect x and y mid-transition.
My brother is getting me all computer paranoid. He’s off his meds talking about, he’s getting hacked on all his devices, and he called Apple and the Apple Genius told him to call the FBI. I’ve noticed weird happenings when I’m online, so I’m worried about things…
I subscribed to Norton because you never know. I got Deluxe which means I can install it on 5 computers. I have an iMac and an HP Notebook.
I mean it works. It found one adware installed on my PC and some tracking cookies with my first and last name in the cookie.
This is how I got the adware. Windows 8.1 couldn’t find the driver for my SD card slot, so I got the driver from drp.su (which I won’t link to, because it gives you adware) – Driver Pack Solutions, and sure enough I was having random pop-up ads and sure enough Norton took care of it, and I even got to keep my SD card slot driver, which makes me suspect I didn’t even need DRPSU.On my Mac however, not one virus or tracking cookie was ever found, and to top it off, the safe browser extension and the idle scans made my iMac hot enough to bake brownies, and if you Google Norton Mac + symdaemon you’ll see that it’s a common problem for symdaemon to chew up the CPU constantly for no good reason and if you disable auto scans and safe browsing you get constant pop ups about how your Mac is insecure,
so I just called Norton Support to get a refund…
I only had to spell my name Jilg about 40 times, because it’s not J.I.L.T. or G.I.L.T. or G.I.L.G. ; it’s J.I.L.G, but the call was a success at getting a refund.
I’m only blogging about it because I have no life. C’est la vie.
EDIT: I took out the GMT offset for reasons of my own cognitive failure, because it made 1 day = 18 hours in GMT – 6 (24 – 6 = 18) so if you want to calculate GMT/UTC offset, just take any time and, put N for hour in the difference column for time +/- N hours.
This is an old thing I wrote in php that I had on my Hostgator hosted b9mx.com (a GoDaddy domain which now just redirects to my Freehand MX art blog, the new(ish) WordPress with all my art posts converted from the old Tumblr blog of the same name).
Youtube seems to have changed a lot so I can only get this to work half the time. I’m too lazy to fix it. For functionality purposes, web apps don’t do the best job of scraping the html for MP4 links with economy hosting resources; it works but by the time you download two of them, the third+ MP4 links have already expired because Youtube only provides a temporary MP4 link with each view. It’s the same MP4 provided to you with the HTML5 video player that automatically starts downloading anyway as soon as you view a Youtube video link, that is if the HTML5 player uses MP4 selected by your browser’s preferred video mime type.
I’m only putting this old web app up for historical purposes. I wrote a thing, I’m proud of it, and you can also view its source and see how it used to work on a 2014-2015 Youtube. 2017+ not so much…
The one part of this app that still works perfectly (I think) is the playlist grabber that simply does preg_match on all the video links in any playlist/channel HTML with curl. So you can get a quick list of video links to watch later and online I might add, instead of downloaded to be watched offline like a caveman, because it is 2017 and Youtube online quality is better than ever.
