      We're almost 40 days into 2016

      2 days ago

      So I'm still finishing things each day, but writing about them every day is kind of tedious and really time-consuming. I'm thinking about only mentioning it when I finish something really cool, or when I fail to finish something for a day. But just stopping like that would be kind of selfish, and would also give cause to question credibility.


      So I'm going to put it to you, the readers: do you want me to keep talking about things I do each day, or would you rather I cut it out and get back to just writing normal-person journals? Do you find yourself inspired to improve yourself as a result of reading about me improving myself in various ways, or do you tend to just skim through that stuff in search of something more generally-interesting? Do you still want to hear about what I'm doing, but in more of a weekly format like @ErinM is doing? I'll go ahead and accede to the more populous vote, so please do post a comment on this journal and make your opinion heard.


      Anyway, it's been a while. Hi there. Friday I flew out to Kingston with my parents (my Dad flew us in a Cessna) to visit with my brother and sister in law, and see the house they're buying. I'm becoming an adult with finally having business cards, and my big brother is becoming more of one by becoming a homeowner. We grow up so ...fast? I'm 35. Fuck.


      Saturday was WinTO. I did WinTO things. Sold some shirts and shot glasses from previous years' Toronto:Unconventional gatherings, to help fund this year's. Which is August 12-14, by the way - book your time off. Sunday I drove to near Barrie for a family lunch with my Dad's side, because our grandmother is getting really old and we want to keep seeing her. Then Sunday night I went to NERDGASM - Oops Whedon it again! which was a Joss Whedon themed circus and burlesque show. I'm friends with the producer, and went to the cast and crew dinner afterwards, where I handed out some of the afore-mentioned business cards. Might have gotten a client lead or two.


      Then today I cleaned up some client work, and issued myself a readjustment of priorities. I spend too much time ...killing time. After working hours are done that's fairly whatever, but for the first 10 hours I'm awake, whenever those hours may be, I need to be actually doing stuff. Otherwise I'm going to fall behind on both my daily commitment AND my ability to make a living and progress myself. I'm 35; I can't afford to be spending 3 hours in the middle of the day playing clicker games and watching YouTube videos. I have a lot of stuff I want to get done, I should be spending my time doing that stuff.

      Why I Save Everything I Do

      6 days ago

      Today was a day of talking to people. First I talked for almost an hour and a half to a couple people about a book series. They asked me to give them something more detailed, to make sure what I want to write will fit in properly with the established lore of the world I'm writing in. Then I had a 10 minute phone conversation with someone who wants to bring me on for an ongoing relationship for a number of small sites over time. So it was a good day for me.


      The person I talked to on the phone is a realtor. He wants to get some branding going for himself, and get better websites out there for himself than the default one provided by the company he works for. He asked me on the phone if I've ever made a real estate website before. My answer was "after a fashion." Back in 2008, when I was working for my friend (let's call him Jeff), we were contracted to create a website for a now-defunct company called the Escape Winter Group. The idea was that property in Florida is cheap, and some Canadians don't like the cold, so why not sell Florida property to Canadians? It made sense, but it never got off the ground, for corporate politics reasons.


      When I was working for Jeff, I got in the habit of backing everything up onto my own computer as well as having it on the remote server. That way, if one ever failed, it was backed up in a second location. When Jeff's company dissolved, he let me keep my copies of all the websites we did. That means that after getting off the phone with the real estate agent, I was able to put the Escape Winter website back online on my own server, so he can see what we did back then. It's not a very technical website - nor frankly an interesting one - but because I kept it around in the dark corners of my computer, I can show it to this prospective client to help get me work.


      If you do something creative, either professionally or as a hobby, do as much of it as you can, and keep what you do. You never know what might come around and be useful again.

      A very straightforward day

      1 week ago

      Today some maintenance people worked on a pipe in my wall, while I did the final client-requested tweaks to what I finished up yesterday. I also set a couple things in place for Uncon. Then I showered and grabbed dinner with a friend, and now I'm here. Tomorrow is going to be all about growing my business: I have that Skype call, and I was introduced today to someone who could provide me with ongoing web work, whom I need to call tomorrow. So far, February is full of win for me. All 3 days of it. Now if only my body would sleep when I want it to...

      Dear Liza, Dear Liza

      There's hole in my wall. It turns out the ancient pipes in my building are in need of being replaced, and right now they're manifesting that by leaking from my apartment into the one below me. This is one benefit I have from living on the top floor: no apartments above mine to leak on me. So today the maintenance man put a hole in my wall to access the leaking pipe, and tomorrow he'll replace the pipe portion and fix the wall.


      Anyway, successes. Yesterday I stretched for the first time in over a week, because my left hamstring has been misbehaving. When I say "misbehaving" what I mean is that when I stretch it, the entire length of it screams at me. So I've been letting it rest, and yesterday I did my first actual stretching in a while. It went okay, with obvious "can't do that yet" caveats. Also I made a spaghetti sauce.


      Today I finished a greatly expanded invoicing section for a client's website. In fact I just finished it a few minutes ago. It just has to go through acceptance testing, and then I should get to invoice for it tomorrow.


      Today I also set up a Skype conversation on Thursday with the man who will make or break the book series related to that short story I was working on recently. If that goes well, it could be a very exciting day for me. But right now it's coming up on 3 in the morning, and I need to get to sleep.


      Good night.

      Relaxing weekend, mostly

      1 week ago

      Yesterday I spent most of my time watching videos on YouTube. I also went out to buy groceries, and I stopped in at a Value Village location, where I found replacement slippers for my old crummy ones that were falling apart. That's going to count as an unexpected win for yesterday. And then I relaxed more.


      Today I spent most of my day updating old websites on my server to use new database code. I did it for my clients last year, I may as well do it for my own, right? Along the way I found some old sites I did ages ago, and showed them to the relevant clients. They should get a kick out of them. Ironically, the sites I didn't update are my RT-related sites. I did all the sites I planned to though, so that's going to count.


      It turns out I have a lot of old sites and pages that are completely defunct now. I deleted a couple, but most of them I kept around, just because.


      Unrelated, WinTO is next weekend. Come to Toronto, and be at the Imperial Pub from 6 onwards to hang out with your fellow community members. We're also going to have news about Uncon following shortly thereafter, so be sure to watch the Twitters and Bookfaces and Tooth Roosters for those updates!

      Why Automatic Payments Are Sometimes Bad

      1 week ago

      Every time I sign up for something with a recurring payment, like a cell phone, I'm asked whether I want to authorize automatic payments. With one exception, that being my internet bill, I always say no.


      Automatic payments are meant to make your life easier. You don't have to worry about remembering to pay your bill, because it happens automatically, so you never run the risk of being late. And if it's a payment for something where the price never changes, or changes rarely, that's fine. I pay for my internet service as a single lump sum in February that covers the entire year, and I know well in advance what that payment will cost.


      The problem occurs when you have the ability to change how much you're going to pay, on a monthly basis. This afternoon (just a few minutes ago, in fact) I received a notification from my cell provider telling me my bill was ready, and if paid on time it would be over twice what it normally is. This made me think I might have missed my payment last month, so I checked my email (a notification is sent when you make a payment) and found I had in fact paid my bill last month; something else was going on.


      I logged in to the website and looked at my bill, and saw a large amount of add-ons had been attached to it. Naturally, I opened the bill to get more details. When I scrolled down to the add-ons, I saw the unlimited texting-in-US package I'd added for AGDQ. This did not surprise me. It had been added 5 times, though. That did surprise me. So I called up my cell provider and talked to someone who agreed that was strange, and I received a credit to my bill for 4 of those instances, and I paid the rest. The whole thing was dealt with in a matter of minutes.


      Now, consider if I'd had automatic payments turned on. The bill would have been paid automatically, and I wouldn't have known about the overpayment until my credit card bill came in, in about 3 weeks. Then I would have had to call my provider to find out what happened, and they still would have credited my account the extra amount, but it would have taken longer to do and the credit would be applied to my following bill. I'd argue that that's more inconvenient than having to log on to a website once a month and enter my (memorized) credit card information.


      Why it's really a problem

      Automatic payments are an example of society's current trend of moving away from control, and towards convenience. We save our passwords in our browser so we don't have to remember them - but that means anyone else using your computer can access all of your accounts. We set our computers to automatically log in and stay logged in - but that means anyone who steals your computer has a free pass into it. People are getting excited about the idea of consolidating all of their cards (driver's license, credit card, bank card, birth certificate, Social Security/Insurance, etc) into a single convenient card or chip - but that means anyone who steals that card or clones it has just stolen your identity for literally no effort. Remember the Fappening, where hundreds of celebrities' private photos got leaked to the internet? Those photos got stolen because the celebrities didn't set up 2-Step Verification on their Apple accounts, because having to go through another step to verify their new laptop on their account was too inconvenient.


      This is the reason why I am hesitant about new technology, and more specifically the "Internet of Things." At a conceptual level, it's an interesting idea that you could send a text message to your fridge while grocery shopping to find out what foods you're out of. It's an interesting idea that you could have something simmering on the stove while you're out, and use your phone to reduce the heat when appropriate. At a practical level, hackers exist, and there is no way such a system would be secure. Someone of ill intent could use the same system to raise the temperature on your stove, burning your food - and depending what's in it, potentially causing a fire. They could detect when you're texting your fridge and know that you're not home, and use that moment to break into your house (this is also why FourSquare is a bad idea, and why I tend not to tell the internet when I'm going somewhere). I don't want a car with OnStar capability, because if they have the ability to shut off your car (and they do), then a malicious hacker can also do that - and anything else OnStar has access to.


      Collectively, we like to think that we're moving towards the Star Trek utopia, where everything is automatic and we don't have to worry about anything. The truth, however, is that unlike in Star Trek, bad people exist, and those people will do whatever they can to exploit what's out there to their own advantage. We need to put control and security ahead of convenience, because anything that's convenient for you is also convenient for someone malicious.


      There's a TV show airing right now called CSI: Cyber. It's set in the CSI universe, and it's based around the concept of a dedicated cybercrime division of the FBI. They embellish things a little, because they're a TV show, but every root issue they raise on the show is legitimate. I recommend watching it. The first season is a little rocky, because it's the first season and most shows are rocky at that point, but as a show it's gotten better in the second season. When you watch it, pay attention to the threats they're reacting to. And then rethink how much you value convenience.

      First things first, I didn't say anything about getting things done yesterday. That's because I'd already put up a journal, and I didn't want to drown everyone's feeds. Yesterday I picked a visual theme for my support ticket software, and I discovered a way to solve the biggest problem I foresaw with it. So I'm calling those my wins for the day.


      Today, I continued tweaking the site I've been working on all week, got them into a "final" state, and sold the upgrades to the client. I also did a couple things for another client. The second isn't that interesting, but if you want to see the fruits of my labour this week, check out http://thewritersnest.ca (and if you spot any bugs, please do let me know so I can fix them).


      I've also been watching Jessica Jones this week. I'm about to watch the last episode of the season while eating dinner. It's been pretty good. Now I just need to figure out what I'm going to eat.


      What do you have planned for the weekend?

      How Do You Define Your Success?

      1 week ago

      Let's talk about life goals for a moment. I'm not going to try to ask anyone what they want, because that's not the important question when it comes to goals. The important question is why do you want it?


      It's easy to fall into the trap of wanting what the other guy has because they have it. Someone you went to school with has earned a job with a high salary, and they have a big house and wear fancy clothes every day. They look happy, and they have more than you do, so you want what they have. But do you want it because you want it, or do you want it because they have it?


      Let me continue here with some of my personal experiences. I lived with my mom until I was 32. There were good reasons for that, don't judge me. For most of that time, I had a job in a startup company with sporadic work that didn't pay regularly, but I had a roof over my head and enough money to call it expendable income. I also had a fantastic girlfriend. I wasn't changing the world, and I wasn't wealthy, but I had the things I wanted at that time. For where I was and what I wanted, I was successful.


      Then I became single, left that job, and moved out. I spent a few months in a friend's basement, and then I moved into my apartment. I found a job with a salary, that I did from home. In that moment, I had a place of my own, and the means to keep myself there. So again, I was successful.


      A year and a half later, I was released from that job, and I worked for my own clients full-time. Again, sporadic work, but enough of it to be self-sufficient. Again, I was successful. Others had more - way more - but that's fine, because what others have doesn't influence how I define my own success.


      Which brings us to today. I've grown to dislike the building I'm in, and I want to live somewhere better. I've grown to dislike the state of my car, and I want one that's better. I am no longer comfortable with being single. And I'm tired with having to find work to do for my clients, and convincing them (rightly) that they need me to do it. I am no longer a success. Not because where I am doesn't hold up against where others my age are, but because where I am doesn't hold up to where I want to be.


      So the next question is this: how do I transition from where I am now, to a position where I can call myself successful? The key here is to change how I'm doing things. As a wise man once said, if you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got. Here is how I get to define my path back to success:


      Replacing my car and finding a new apartment both take money I don't have right now. So in order to change those things, I need to raise money. I have a piece of software I wrote for a client several years ago, which I have an opportunity to resell to another client in April. If it happens, that will provide me with enough money to relax, and take my time a little more. I'll be able to focus my professional energies not on finding new clients for work (still offering commissions, by the way), but on finding new customers to resell that software to. That will represent a fundamental shift in my business model, and it carries with it the potential to open new doors in new industries.


      For where I am right now, reselling that software in April will make me successful. And if that doesn't happen, which it might very well not, then depending what other business I've acquired by then, I might be in trouble. It's an uncomfortable place to be, but such is the nature of self-employment. The possibility of success always comes with the possibility of failure.


      However, you'll notice that I'm not defining that success possibility based on what anyone else has done. I know where I am, I know where I want to be, and this is the path I see that will get me there. Success for me right now has nothing at all to do with a big house, a supermodel girlfriend, or flying around the globe, because those aren't things I want right now. Right now, I want to be in a position where I make a living off the work I've already done, rather than on work I haven't done yet. Since that's what I want, that's how my success is defined.


      How do you define yours?

      Well, it's a Wednesday

      2 weeks ago

      Did two things today that are relevant. First, I brought that website I'm updating for myself to what I would consider to be a provisionally finished state. That means I'm done updating it with the technology I'm already comfortable with, and it's in a state where I'd be comfortable giving it back to the client if they want it. Now the next step is to upgrade it with an amount of technology that is absurd for the size of the website. Because that's the best way to learn new tech - on something small, before using it on something large.


      The second thing I did was pick up my business cards. It's like I'm an adult or something. Feels weird. Now I need to give them all out to people, so I can have more made up for me. I also need to figure out the best way for me to carry them around, since my wallet isn't really being friendly towards them right now. Until I get card holders, I may just need to keep stacks of them in all my jackets.

      Harder Than It Should Have Been

      2 weeks ago

      This morning I got an email that my business cards were ready! Hooray! This evening I went to pick them up, and the binary was practically invisible. Boo. Turns out it looks different on the card than it does on a screen. I revised the design and got them to redo it, so I'll be picking up proper versions tomorrow morning. I made the binary darker than it appears in the image, but that's fine. When I run out of these (a run of 250), the next batch will be lighter, and the code in the bottom-left corner will be slightly different, making the first editions unique.


      I also had to figure out how to dynamically generate social buttons for a website that only loads one page and then reloads everything else by ajax. LinkedIn and Google+ were trivial, and Twitter was fairly easy, but Facebook was a serious pain in the ass. I ended up having to lift the code for the button from within the iframe it generates, including the css, and plug that into my page so I can modify it directly. It's hacky, and probably broken on some devices, but it's a start. And I learned some stuff.


      Now if only my nose would figure out that I'm over this cold, that would be swell.


      Edit: Shortly after posting this, I went back to my code and figured out the right way to deal with the Facebook problem. And it was easy once I knew what I was doing wrong. It usually is.

        Awesome thanks! I have a team I just need to get my ass in gear for strength training. I'm already running frequently so I just plan on increasing my mileage (I heard there's about 17km of hills).

        Ignore the time estimate on the site; expect to spend 5 hours out there. Plan your day accordingly. Wear clothes you don't care about, or else clean them immediately. Don't have pockets. Your shoes will probably be a lost cause; bring spares and donate the dead ones to the pile (you'll see what I mean when you get there).

        You'll be driving to an off-site parking lot and taking a bus to Mt St Louis. Bring I think it's $15 for parking, and include about half an hour on either end for bus transit. You'll be leaving your wallet behind while on the course; keep it appropriately empty, just in case.

        They will offer you food on the course; eat it, you'll need the energy. And the potassium. Completing the course is easier with a team, for many reasons; if you go there alone, try to find people to join up with. Tough Mudder is hard, but remember that you're going there to enjoy yourself; so have fun with it. Lots of people dress up in costumes.

        Most of the obstacles I encountered weren't that difficult; a moderate amount of fitness should be plenty to get you through them. Focus on cardio. Lots and lots of cardio. And don't skip leg day - in fact, add another one. They're going to be taking you up and down hills an awful lot. Compound exercises are better than isolation exercises. You will have to climb over a 7-8' wall in order to get to the course; make sure you can do that, as it's the one obstacle you really can't skip. But don't skip obstacles unless you absolutely have to, because otherwise what's the point?

        That's everything that comes to mind right now.

      Catching up now on the harassment discussion from the other night (that really doesn't sounds so great when typed out, but I'm going to go with it...) via You Tube.
      Just wanted to say thank you for taking the time and putting the thought into a meaningful discussion.

      I will be taking your advice on writing a little side story though, may give me some creativity practice. Maybe you can read it sometime and tell me if it is any good.

    • DanielZhu1

      2 years ago

      You have read the idea I posted, and I see the logic in your words. But I'm fine if they don't use my ideas until 3 years later, I just want to give them something, and be just a small part of this. Because RWBY is something that truly resonates with me.

      • DanielZhu1

        2 years ago

        I think I will also try writing the RWBY side story. May improve my creativity, and open up more possibilities.

      • DanielZhu1

        2 years ago

        With my current college possibilities it's very likely I'll be able to get some great credentials. After all and SAT score of 2280 isn't all that common.

        I wish you the best of luck, but I wouldn't count on getting an internship with them; it sounds like you've already decided it's going to happen, and you need to realize that a) they need to have such an intern position open, and b) they literally get dozens of resumes and applications a day. Hopefully it will work out the way you want, but assume it won't, and write it yourself.

      • DanielZhu1

        2 years ago

        Yes, they probably won't in the next few years, but in 3 years time I will have the qualifications to intern at rooster teeth for 1 summer, maybe it may be possible then

      • DiMono It's Back Baby!

        2 years ago

        They're not going to use your idea. Ever. It's not going to happen. If you're passionate about it, write it yourself.

      The Handheld Gaming section doesn't have a forum mod and now there's a good amount of duplicate threads since Pokemon X and Y came out. FYI.

        Yeah, was unsure of who to go to since there's no mod. Cool cool.

      How are you on your own friends list?

      • DiMono It's Back Baby!

        2 years ago

        Back in the early days of the site there was a glitch where if you capitalized a letter in your username that wasn't supposed to be capitalized, you could add yourself, because it was based on username rather than user id at the time. I'm one of a handful of people who did it. I think I'm the only one who kept it such, and now I actually can't undo it because the code runs on user id now.
