Oops..

March 30th, 2009 No comments

I’ve been notified lately that I had somehow managed to create over 2 million files on my hosting account. Unfortunately I had left on a caching feature from my proxy. This created a nice little 30GB of 2 million files, and it took a good 2 hours to remove. For anyone who isn’t aware, the caching feature will allow users to browse the proxy faster as it has already loaded certain files instead of having to download them again. Existing users shouldn’t really notice any change as I am on a very high speed plan anyway. I saved myself from account deletion and have managed to get the files down to some other number that I’m unaware of, but probably under 10.000 at least.

Yeah, oops.

Visual Basic

March 15th, 2009 No comments

Last week, in my IPT subject we have begun our Visual Basic topic. I have personally never used Visual Basic before, but am fairly quick with it as I’ve had previous experiences with C++. So the first lesson we create one of those simple “Hello World” programs. I also have a functional calculator finished at this time, with other people still struggling with the first program.

It wasn’t so fun for me when I realized a calculator was what we’d spent the next 70 minutes on for the next lesson when I had already done that.

In the hope of a new dream..

I haven’t dreamed anything (or at least, technically, haven’t remembered any dreams) lately so I figured maybe I should do something interesting. I randomly thought of the idea of flying Boeing 777’s at speed breaking the sound barrier and applying brone-crushing gravitational forces by doing barrel rolls and other such stunts while listening to the main theme song of Top Gun.

It was more entertaining than it sounds.
