Learn to Program with Asher @ FurDev

Welcome to Programming with Asher!

Come on in! Wow, I'm glad you're here 'cause it's always nice getting visitors. Well, I'm Asher and this is my humble abode of programming magic, and life appreciation. I assume you've stopped by to start your journey towards computer wizardry, as my grandma likes to call it, so I'll just get right to it. To the right you'll see the navigation menu, from there you should be able to get to the rest of the site. Below is the latest news in blog form about all sorts of things!

Anyways, I'm not kicking you out or anything, in fact stay as long as you want (I can stay up all night, don't worry - wait, no I can't), buuuut... I don't have too much more to say here for now. So... nice meeting you, and goodbye!

"Beauty is the purgation of the superfluous." ~ Michelangelo

Sincerely, your friend,

Asher

Old ’00s Journal Entry 177 7/20/04

This entry is part 177 of 180 in the series '00s LiveJournal

This is my old livejournal I found laying around my computer. I just thought, you know with my poetry and my seventh grade journal and everything, I could post is up here for posterity sake. I planned for this blog to be about my life and programming tutorials. I’m still working on the programming tutorials (as in, well, thinking about them). And all this old stuff, I guess is a good way to get to know me in a way. Mostly it helps me store stuff in a central location I want to look up later. So here goes. (Remember this is like 9-10 years ago):

Looking at all the pretty people,
Them looking at all the pretty things,
Laughing at innocent games, getting what they want,
All the pretty people who don’t understand me,
All their soft faces making fun of us,
As we make fun of them,
Lost carousel dolls on mobious strips,
We go round and round and round again,
All the beauty in this world above me,
Around me, within me,
But I can never find it when I look,
I want it so bad.

So, this blog didn’t really turn into ‘learning how to program’ blog. It could be saved, but it has so many problems (being my first blog) that leaving it be is best. What it has turned into is an archive of my life online. In that vein, some of my sites that had URLs that aren’t up or updated anymore can be archived here.

And I’m back.

And now I’m back in Colorado. Ate great seafood at Bubba Gump’s, saw the ocean, the sand was fine, and did some ADR recording. I feel like a real life actor! LOL whatever… thanks for the previous comments.

My friends speak of being alone.

I never really understood the enjoyment of a bed of two until it actually happened. Sometimes when I’m trying to go to sleep, with thoughts swimming through my head, I wish someone I love could be next to me to hug, to whisper sweet nothings to, to caress, to care about, to fondle…

But not necessarily for sex, really, just to be there. When someone was there one day, and then isn’t there the next day there’s such a profound and strange feeling of absence…

I’m such a girl. Intimacy to me is more important than almost anything else. Some physical attraction is important too. I’m so lonely, I have practically yearned for there to be particular someones in my bed next to me. I lay there thinking about when fingers were run through my hair by romantic watchers while I slept and it just makes me want love.

Beng alone I’ve learned to find other things to live for, to smile about each day other than love. But it would be nice if the story actually worked out for once.

This is where I was born

Adolescence is a surreal world: kids who don helmets and practice banging into one another for hours each week are deemed healthy and wholesome, even heroic. Geeks are branded strange and anti-social for building and participating in one of the world’s truly revolutionary new cultures – the Internet and the World Wide Web.

Or for being isolated or lacking school spirit. Or for listening to industrial music or wearing odd clothes. But perhaps geek kids are isolated partly because schools don’t provide them with any means of connecting.

argh

Well, I’m trying to use rubycocoa on my OS X computer except I’m running panther with updated programming tools and it’s a server. So I have to modify some things around but now I’m just stuck. So I sent an e-mail to the author that says this:

I downloaded RubyCocoa-0.4.0 and have successfully installed it for Ruby 1.8 using all the steps that were in the instructions.

However, I’m not running 10.2 but rather 10.3 server.

I had to modify the install script so that pbxbuild now became xcodebuild. That worked alright.

Then I had to eliminate some particular constants (rb_NSGraphics.m -> AlphaEqualToData and AlphaAlwaysOne) (rb_NSSavePanel.m -> NSFileHandlingPanelImageButton, NSFileHandlingPanelTitleField, NSFileHandlingPanelBrowser, NSFileHandlingPanelForm, NSFileHandlingPanelHomeButton, NSFileHandlingPanelDiskButton, and NSFileHandlingPanelDiskEjectButton ) according to the release notes from Apple about Panther and AppKit.

I’m going to try go to through and according to the release notes update the rb_* source files for the framework, but there’s one thing I’m not understanding and I was hoping your experience with the project might shed some light on it. When I try to execute irb and type:

require ‘osx/cocoa’

I get the error message:

objc: failed objc_getClasS(NSObject) for NSServicesPasteboard->isa->isa
objc: please link appropriate classes in your program
Trace/BPT trap

What do I do in this case to remedy this?

Thank you for your time,
Asher Holley

Hopefully somebody will be able to help me.

Sorry I haven’t had any requisite works lately. It just hasn’t been that type of time in my life.

You know, everybody’s going to think I’m crazy until I do it. Then they’re all going to applaud me for my genious. Lucky them.

What a big heart I have… the better to love you with…

LI’L RED RIDING HOOD (Ronald Blackwell)

Owoooooooo!
Who’s that I see walkin’ in these woods?
Why, it’s Little Red Riding Hood.
Hey there Little Red Riding Hood,
You sure are looking good.
You’re everything a big bad wolf could want.
Listen to me.

Little Red Riding Hood
I don’t think little big girls should
Go walking in these spooky old woods alone.
Owoooooooo!

What big eyes you have,
The kind of eyes that drive wolves mad.
So just to see that you don’t get chased
I think I ought to walk with you for a ways.

What full lips you have.
They’re sure to lure someone bad.
So until you get to grandma’s place
I think you ought to walk with me and be safe.

I’m gonna keep my sheep suit on
Until I’m sure that you’ve been shown
That I can be trusted walking with you alone.
Owoooooooo!

Little Red Riding Hood
I’d like to hold you if I could
But you might think I’m a big bad wolf so I won’t.
Owoooooooo!

What a big heart I have-the better to love you with.
Little Red Riding Hood
Even bad wolves can be good.
I’ll try to be satisfied just to walk close by your side.
Maybe you’ll see things my way before we get to grandma’s place.

Little Red Riding Hood
You sure are looking good
You’re everything that a big bad wolf could want.
Owoooooooo! I mean baaaaaa! Baaa?

Current Mood: evil

Sometimes I dream of a vision that comes to me from beyond. I see love as a color, as an action expressed, and people act as a part of one whole, one holistic system. Hate as we know it doesn’t exist. I see sex no longer used as a tool for power, and I see sadness no longer a part of loneliness. I see man loving man and woman, and I see woman loving woman and man. I see children loving children and adults, and I see adults loving adults and children. I see our resources going towards our the things that are going to shape our future, rather than our destruction. I see fruition, I see communication, I see the stars in the sky singing a song of life. I see people living for themselves rather than for others, rather than for money, rather than for corporations, rather than for their religion. I see us all taking shape in ways we don’t imagine now. I see a government that we don’t imagine now. I see harmony, complete harmony.

How the visions of man haunt me. Before sleep I’m already dreaming, I cannot fall into slumber.

Sound of Silence

And in the naked light I saw….
Ten thousand people maybe more…

People talking without speaking. People hearing without listening.

People writing songs that voices never shared; no one dared disturbed the sound of silence.

Argh!

Gedanken theses frustrate me. Why clog the conduits of intellectual cyberspace for those of us who are actually trying to learn something. Next time you write a paper try learning a clear definition of algorithm before you start slapping it around in front of people who don’t know any better. You’ll just confuse those of us who are actually taking you seriously until we know any better. You just make us want to listen to you less in the future!

And on another note, is it possible that you could eventually find a Godël number that represents all of reality as we know it? And if that is possible, is it possible that we could take a sequence of such numbers and combine them to form a Gödel number that represented one large super-reality of infinite dimension? And if so, what would all of that mean?
