It Has Been a Few Months – Update
Hello again to the few who have found this website in recent months without seeing any activity from me. I’m still alive, and finally back at coding. Life has been hectic since I finished that last version but I did continue on with making my own indicator module which I may or may not put with the downloaded. I personally feel I should add more web scrapping options to it rather than just have the alpha vantage api since they also want you to download that data through them, plus my numbers aren’t quite the same. Sometimes this is because I picked a different method or include more data points. Ultimately I want something that can pull w/e data from large data sets and go through it to find patterns I ask. Nothing terribly complicated, I would be the brains behind the tool so sharing it doesn’t really hurt me. There are likely tools that do what I want already but nothing free I’ve seen yet, it all requires me to code to use it.
I had intended to get back to this around New Years but 2022 has been one of the worst years to date for me with the absolute disaster going on both in the world and my own life. I went from getting a raise and working on contacting my doctor about a few of my health issues to slipping on some ice and having all responsible parties leave me down sh*t’s creek without a paddle so now I’m dealing with trying to get a lawyer for that, dealing with my landlord is always a headache… always. The loss of my job and the inability to currently walk well enough to work labour jobs as I do has been a massive pain…… In all this I have obviously kept active on twitter as I do but more importantly I took the time to completely gut and redo my setup, both pcs, and finally have a workstation that allows me to code between the two pretty seamlessly but also stream with just a couple button presses meaning I’m more inclined to do it. I lost a monitor until I can get a better video card due to an unresolvable driver issue but did get a new larger case so I was able to cool the second PC better. I then spent time converting to using Google Chrome as they have finally sorted out the performance issues and it runs the best now. It also allows me to login on anything and have access to my bookmarks and settings. This was partially prompted by a friend on Twitter helping me update my resume and he used Drive and Google Docs, which I immediately fell in love with because I find Google’s text correction AI to be amazing! I have VScode set up to do a similar thing using my GitHub login and then am sticking mostly to extensions I can use with it so everything can be a one stop shop allowing me to code even on my laptop. My second PC is now running Linux as well, I prefer it and finally got my audio working through Jack audio server. Never did get network audio working but I don’t currently need it so whatever.
As it sits I plan to continue on with coding, maybe make a career out of it if I can, and I plan to start using this blog more often as well. I am making it easier for me to log in and write as it was a bit of a chore before.
I also have my code on GitHub. As it stands I have little reason to not share my source code so you can find me there at github.com/freakinbox.
Hope to be posting more updates, but at least now people can see if I’m still coding or doing anything through GitHub.
As usual I may or may not spell check this later lol
