If you really want to honor Michael J. Fox today, here's how. Take a look at Parkinson's and learn more about it. Consider donating to the foundation. Because a world without Parkinson's would be a great place.

PSA: Candle Safety
With cooler weather comes a lot more desire for many more people to light candles - and thus also an increase in home fire incidents. If you're going to light candles, be sure you know how to handle them safely so you don't burn down your home, eh?

EDIT: FIXED! Solution Found
Turns out the problem was my Google Apps for Work accounts, which are not set up to allow for Hangouts, were causing the conflict. So, yeah, I've done what I needed to in order to fix the issue, and now Hangouts is working properly on my phone again. :)

I'm in the process right now of the usual troubleshooting (uninstall update/reset app to factory/reinstall updates, reboot device, etc.), but figured I'd put this out there in the meantime.

I'm on a Moto X running 4.4.4. Not sure if this is something specific to it being a +Republic Wireless phone yet or not either. I haven't had much time for searches of others experiencing this.___

I've read 59 out of the 100 books listed.
Given my Read list and my To Read list, though, these would be an extremely small sampling of books... I generally read between 150 to 500 books a year, depending on how my health and schedules allow for reading time. Speaking of which, I have a few new ones on my list that I need to read for research purposes soon.

Useful Techy Things
Because it came up in conversation with someone recently, and because I'm currently updating my own USB drive containing it on it, allow me to introduce you to PortableApps. It's quite handy, especially should you find yourself needing to borrow someone else's computer for a bit and want access to your own settings in Chrome and/or Firefox.

There's a nice long list of portable apps, ranging from things needed for pc diagnostics and repair to graphic design and web development. I personally run it on one of my flash drives that I keep in my purse (another contains a live version of Ubuntu, and the other is simply file storage for transfers and the like, and is usually kept empty. If you're interested, more info on the Ubuntu Live USB can be found here: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/ ).

Danger! Danger, Will Robinson!
So, as you know, I've been working on learning what I need to know to start making my own video games. A lot of this has mostly been learning my way around the software programs more than anything else, as a lot of it is similar to other stuff I've done in the past. Even when stepping into unfamiliar territory with a few things, it usually takes me only a few quick minutes of playing with it to wrangle a project into submission to bend to my will. Just one of the perks of being made of awesome, I suppose.

However, as is true with many things, there are some who would like to scam you out of any potential of things working out well for you. Prior to my forcing an unfollow by this person, a quick scroll through their posts revealed some rather... questionable content, particularly for someone who, in another comment thread, specifically states that... more »

However, as is true with many things, there are some who would like to scam you out of any potential of things working out well for you. Prior to my forcing an unfollow by this person, a quick scroll through their posts revealed some rather... questionable content, particularly for someone who, in another comment thread, specifically states that this is their "scouting account."

But the intention in the post is pretty damn clear, particularly when it's copypasta towards multiple people, whether in private posts like I received, or in comments directed towards other people (though dude, seriously, how stupid do you think I am to not notice that the wording is exact between your comment in a thread I was in prior to yourself that you then pinned me as another target in and what you sent me?).

Not to mention, a quick google search reveals that this person seems to have only even created this identity very recently, and there's no showreel or portfolio to be had for this self-proclaimed "Pro 2D game programmer" who has "all the skills required to make video games" and "[his] hands will fall off if [he] type[s] them all". 

Like, dude, I know my portfolio is a bit bare right now while I work on getting things converted for the web and whatnot, but for one, I have my work attached to my name with an established identity, and two, I'm actually willing to state exactly how much I do or don't know about something.

But the real kicker, y'know, is that I actually am best at teaching myself and learning from observation and hands-on experience. Hell, you can even ask people who have had to "train" me for work in the past that this is the way that I learn best. Basically, leave me to my own devices, and I'll wow the underpants off of you (because, let's be honest, in this heat, I doubt many of you are wearing pants ^.~).

So, long story short, be safe out there on the internet. Not everyone who offers to help you with something has good intentions. And if you need resources for where to learn anything regarding game design and development, or graphic or web design and development, I have a ton of bookmarks I'm working on organizing so that I can share them soon - and all of it's free material that isn't looking to ever turn a profit from it, y'know?___

Monday Morning Confusions Provided By Lexi
Hey, look! I have a new avatar!

It would figure, after spending quite some time figuring out how to get this coloured to a certain point, that Ps would decide to say NOPE and switch layers on me (thanks for that, y'jerk), thus resulting in some shading errors that I also accidently saved over. So... yeah. I'm going to end up recoloring it all over again, because I didn't catch this until after it was flattened and had long since lost the layer jumps from the history, so there was no going back. But hey, at least I have something for the meantime...

morning
Slightly belated coffee time is belated due to pain, dizziness, and checking on messages. Most of which have included the fact that marriage is now legal for everyone here in the States regardless of their sexual orientation. It's about fucking time, yo.

There's plenty of other stuff that I could go on to say about everything, but in the end, it boils down to I'm in need of coffee. Talk stuff can come later.

A couple new projects are going to get started soon, once I finish getting the last of the installs taken care of. I still need to install brushes and presets and things into Adobe stuff.

But for now, coffee... and maybe foods... if I can stop being dizzy long enough to safely walk to go see what there is for noms.

Okay, +Google. I know your Hangouts team just updated this today, but umm... do you NOT see a problem here? My secondary screen to the right is a 15.6" laptop at 1366x768 resolution. Hangouts, even with the transparent UI, now takes up a non-resizable 1/3 of my screen.

I can literally hold my Moto X cellphone up to the screen, both vertically and horizontally, and Hangouts is now twice the size of my phone. I can't resize it. I normally have other windows that are stacked open across near every bit of my screen so that I can always see Hangouts when someone sends me a message. I know I'm not the only one, either.

Not to mention, I thought this was kinda made with laptop users in mind in the first place. Seems a bit odd, knowing that most users screens are going to be 15.6" to 17", to make your app where it looks unnecessarily large even on the 22" 1920x1080... more »

What gives? There's no real new feature to this update save for the ability to launch as a non-transparent all-in-one window thing that has some really crappy coding behind it, by the way, because I can see where you tried to make it somewhat responsive, but failed.

This isn't elegant. This isn't functional. I don't blame anyone who is on a single monitor setup to not use the desktop app. Heck, I'm on a dual monitor setup, and I'm quickly finding I don't want to use it either, and I've been a daily user of it up until today.

Please get your code together, Google. This is just sloppy work and should never have been made public.___

Today in WHERE THE HELL IS LEXI?!
I decided to see if I could stretch what limping power my laptop still has in it while still being forced to maintain Windows OS on it by performing a factory reset.

Thus, I got to enjoy the SIX BLOODY FUCKING HOURS it took to do Windows Updates... in segments... of ten to fifteen at a time... and a couple one at a time at the end... because I was having to run all of the Windows 8 updates, as this laptop was pre-installed with Win8, and was later updated to Win8.1 with the free update.

So after all of that, I got to do the whole Windows 8.1 install, and then its bloody updates (that was thankfully much shorter), install Chrome and other necessary programs basic usage, and am taking more time in getting the rest installed, because really, I still haven't had any sleep (I started this project at 6am after I couldn't get any sleep... more »

Ooh, and did I mention my antivirus was a bitch and gave me hell trying to get it logged in to acknowledge I have a license for it, which meant having to install, uninstall, reinstall, find out that install corrupted itself, uninstall again, reinstall yet again, and finally managed to get it to work. Yeah, that was fun... (not)

I've got the Creative Cloud desktop installed and signed in, however, I haven't started installing any of the CC apps yet, simply because that is a major bandwidth hog and is better left to overnight download after everyone's got offline. Then there's the reinstalling my fonts, and the software for my Wacom tablet, and all that other fun stuff to be able to actually see if all of this effort will actually have been worth it.

Though now I also have to go through and redo all of my tweaking and adjustments on Windows settings themselves, clean up the registry and startup apps, and all that other stuff. I've at least got rid of most if not all of the metro apps, because yeah, no. I avoid those at all cost unless it's something to do with the Windows settings themselves. I seriously love Classic Shell... I don't have to deal with the Start Tiles. Bleh.___

For Those Not Used To Tornado Watches & Warnings
Don't panic. And seriously, carry a towel. As well as some blankets and pillows. They'll make things more comfortable for you, as well as help offer some protection in the event of falling debris.

Be sure to have your basic disaster supplies kit ready. Not sure what that entails? Find a useful list of the priority things here: http://www.ready.gov/kit

Don't forget about your medications! Pack them in a purse and/or backpack, and keep them with you at all times. In case disaster does strike, this will help make sure you have them after the fact.

Here's some useful info to read over, especially if this is the first time experiencing this kind of severe weather:

I've survived more tornadoes than I care to even think about. I've even seen two with my own eyes that were less than a mile away from me while I was running for shelter. Trust me, these things are dangerous, and you need to take them seriously. Stay safe.

(Posted for the benefit of those in New England who are currently under Tornado Watches. I've had a lifetime of going through this, so I'm quite used to these situations. But I know many others aren't, so I'm trying to provide what I can to keep everyone calm and safe.)___
