Day 105: Psychiatrist scheduling
In today’s post:
Psychiatrist scheduling — So it begins. Koko is coco. The most powerful music app in the world!! Salt’s effect on water.
Scheduling. Mainly for a psychiatrist
A lot of scheduling going on in my life now. It’s funny, because just a few days ago, everything felt hopeless, and i had nothing to really do. So here’s what’s gonna happen. 18th of August, i have an appointment with my doctor again, about the swollen leg. Then school starts around 3 weeks from now (27th, i think). Then later on, in a few months, i’ll be going to the dentist, i’ll get my own place to live (Hopefully), and basically just get a life. It’s a long rope to get to the end to, but it’s worth it. It’ll be arduous and tear inducing. But totally worth it.
Brief on Koko
Saw a video with Koko today. I’ve always been skeptical about that gorilla, when it comes to the claims that she can understand language (That is, understanding grammar, the logic of it, etc). I don’t think she does actually. Now, she’s still very interesting, but odds are stacked against the alleged owners of her. Mostly because they refuse to study her, and actually bring out scientific reports. We’re only getting anecdotal allegories. All the while, refusing to bring up the arguments against them.

Music app progress
I did it.. I succeeded in being able to use custom scripts and styles on any webpage on the web. Which means that, you could re-skin youtube to fit the music player to your liking, and make it work whichever way you want. You could do that with grooveshark too. Which is what i’ll do for the first skin, by the way. I’ll have a grooveshark, youtube and local player all in one. Can’t wait to show what i have in mind for the UI.
I also enabled some flags which should give me full paths to local files when dragging and dropping. Which is fantastic!
You know.. I think it’ll be one of the most powerful music players out there, due to its openness. However, if no one ends up liking it but me, then that’s fine as well. I made it mostly for myself, because i got so tired at all the samey shit in terms of music apps, out there. I’d say the program is about 2/3s done.. Although, i might be underestimating it. At the very least, over 1/2 way done.
It was amazing doing the programming on it today though, and tomorrow, i will do the final touches on the website skinning thingie i made, so i can start making the skins proper, and have something to show.
Not to self though (And this won’t make sense to anyone else): The website skinning is currently in the zoom function, and needs replacing.
Other than that, i’ve been feeling a little restless for some reason. Maybe it’s just because i’m kind of tired. But yea, i’ve mostly been programming, so i don’t have much to really tell.
Sunday.. Boring Sunday. Will probably do some programming.
While salt and water is pro thirst:
