Goodbye

Well, it’s the end of the road for my blog, and the forum that goes with it. In fact, I’m pretty sure that no one actually posts on the forum besides me.

I started this blog in around 2010 as a way for me to log when people bully me in school, as well as other bits of school life and other things I wanted to talk about.

I have aspergers syndrome and always seem to get bullied in school, whether it’s bullies thinking that I’m pregnant (I think those bullies are dumb in the sense that they can’t seem to understand that I’m a male), or them trying to trick me into speaking dirty explicit words and phrases from other languages (exploiting the fact that English is the only language I’m fluent in)
Long story short, years later, I dropped out of college due to my eczema worsening, mental changes and me not being able to concentrate in class as a result, and so I didn’t have much to write, and I no longer had any bullying to worry about. I could live a better life.
Soon, I reached the point where I no longer have anything to write, and so, I’m closing the blog.
But 1 last thing before I go. Where will the future guides go?
I have published guides here, but new guides will be published on my Instructables page, my username there is “kbhasi”. I will also be publishing new guides on a new website at mustardormayo.404.mn, which as of writing this, is still a work in progress.
So I’ve finally reached the point. Goodbye.

Why I haven’t been uploading interesting YouTube videos recently

The February 2015 Update

(Note: If you see this as the first post after clicking the “Software” tab on top, it means that I am slowly learning software development and haven’t really come out with any software items yet)

Anyway, I know that I haven’t really been posting anything much recently, but for me, that is to be expected since I feel like I have many projects but do them slowly as I’m autistic(for the most part – I have Asperger’s syndrome) and want to balance school(actually college) and my personal life. Some of those ‘projects’ are a couple of visual tours that I’m working on.

Software development

I am studying computer programming and one day, I’ll go ahead and start on a software project that I’ve been conceptualising since early January of this year. I don’t want to tell you what it is since it’s so early on in the development process, but what I can tell you is that it’s going to be an Android-only application for a reason.

For now though, the first app I want to create is not an app, but a partial theme pack for CyanogenMod. More specifically, I’m porting the Comic Neue font(my favourite font if you didn’t know already) and its angular variant into their own font packs to be set as system fonts in CM and other versions of Android that use the CM Theme Chooser. This won’t be available in the Google Play Store just yet since those two font packs for me don’t yet justify the cost of a Play Store developer publisher account(one-time US$25) and I may eventually take in requests for other fonts* if I feel like doing so.

Hopefully, if I become good at my software development, I should be able to code together my own basic web site where I can showcase my developments rather than using my blog.

*that are free and hopefully public-domain since I do not want to bother with licensing, commissions and things like that.

New main phone

I recently got a OnePlus One as a new main phone, but note the fact that I said “new main phone”. I am still keeping my Galaxy Note 3 as a secondary phone since the 1+1(or OPO as the 1+ fandom seem to abbreviate it) does not have a digital pen and pen features which the Samsung Galaxy Note series is well-known for.

New unboxing style

On the subject of getting a new phone, I’m going to be unboxing that with a different style, since I feel that I can be different in that area as well. What that means is that I’m going to be doing the unboxing as a set of photos with some video clips, so I will still be doing a video on YouTube but also a series of photos with explanations of different sizes here on WordPress.

First YouTube Poop Tennis match

On the YTP side of things, I did manage to start playing my first YouTube Poop Tennis match with YouTube user YoshiOG1, which you can watch here(opens in a new tab).

Staying with WordPress for now

I sometimes consider switching from WordPress to Tumblr, but am telling myself not to because I know that there is no zBench theme for the latter, but there is such a thing for the former, and I don’t know when this happened but WP later added a “reblog” feature and an “improved posting experience”(the latter of which I prefer not to use) to compete with Tumblr, at least that’s what I think.

I do plan to one day, port WordPress themes to run on Tumblr as part of my software development, but do not want to think about it for now.

Category cleanup

Hopefully within this month, I will go ahead and delete some of the categories that I haven’t really posted to in a while. although I’m not sure if I’ll even do it or not.

“S Pen has been detached”

S Pen has been detached landscapeS Pen has been detached portrait

I decided to take screenshots of the aforementioned thing that annoys me, besides the “Recommended apps (Earphones)” thing*(fortunately, that can be turned off by going to “Application manager” in settings and hiding notifications for “PageNotiBuddySvc”) thanks to a tip from a site I forgot about), as I felt like trying to start a meme where it would be inserted into the top of photos where things are seen being detached, but also to use in my YouTube Poops.

The first 2 above are in the default font, in landscape and portrait respectively. I would have done the few other bundled fonts(and Comic Neue as well which I converted using HiFont but I didn’t want to complicate myself. Comment if you want them though.

**since that’s my new font after Comic Sans MS and I used HiFont to convert it into something I could use on my Galaxy Note 3.

Some reasons why I want a phone running a desktop OS phone(a modern-day OQO if you please)

Failed to open selected file (Samsung TouchWiz web browser)

Inability to flag comments on Facebook Mobile

Me: “I hate it when mobile web browsers zoom in to text boxes!!!!!” (Samsung TouchWiz web browser again, also applicable to other mobile web browsers)

image

“Browser size = 640×312 Screen resolution = 640×360” (I’m using a 1920×1080 screen on my phone(a Galaxy Note 3) but this web browser(and possibly Google Chrome mobile) lies about the screen resolution!)

Also, YouTube allowing Content ID users to block their videos from being played on any other OS except for their web interface with the Flash player. Talk about censorship! (Photo used with permission from Megamix Central's social media)

(Another reason which I can’t document as a photo here: Inability to change the size of elements on the screen. Android only lets you change the text size, and I know Paranoid Android may be able to fix the problem, but I would want a version of that that keeps the best stuff from TouchWiz(S apps, multi window support, air features and smart features as well as the large number of toggles in the notification centre and the ringtones and notification sounds))

Even when i turn on the user-agent spoofer, some websites still give me the mobile version. Another thing i don't like.

Here’s what I would want to use: (Digitizer pen, dock and other accessories not shown)

OQO model 3 basic concept

Or at least this:

Note3-Win8-Concept

Yes this is a photo of a Galaxy Note 3 with a Windows start page pasted on it. I personally use the black one myself.

Why students these days secretly take photos rather than taking notes

I now know why students these days are secretly taking photos of what teachers are presenting to the class.

The teachers go too fast than I can write so I end up taking photos, then if its a document, I would try to remember to go home and convert the photos back to documents which I embed in my Evernote, or paste the photos if they are whiteboard markings.

Google (Drive) really loves their Anonymous Animals…

I was checking out someone’s public file on Drive and happened to find this “feature” amusing. As I’m writing this, I’m ending up with a ton of screenshots on my Desktop.

Google employees who are working on Drive software, if you’re reading this, I recommend you add these (especially the 2 at the top): (these are references to some TV shows I love and you know where to click for more info)

Quickie: happiness levels

It seems that not only do I have an energy level(how tired I am), but I also seem to have a happiness level.

Just like my energy level, my happiness level is sometimes low when I wake up. When I’m abroad at my second home during the holidays, my happiness level is above my recommended level, because there are factors there that are better than in my home country, and I try to recreate them here but usually can’t find the time to do so. Those factors break down into the following groups:

  • Weather
  • Entertainment
  • Activities

And I also found out that after my holiday mood ends, my happiness level goes down with it, and since one of my big breaks is near the end of the year, it makes the last week of December to the first few weeks(or months) of school my most boring time of the year. My holiday mood usually ends 1 to 2 weeks after I arrive in my home country.
