First real week (as in: not split between both years) just flashed by!
I've made some Flash, I've played some Flash games, I one day made the grueling discovery that my Flash saves are apparently purged every once in a while, I then made the startling discovery that you can specify how much space Flash is allowed to allocate for its saves on a per-site basis (here's the official tool), but then I made the disappointing discovery that it doesn't seem to matter how much space I allocate on either overall or per-site basis: the saves still disappear mysteriously at seemingly random intervals.
So I installed Synctoy, set up my first ever scheduled task in Windows (a really nifty little feature most people probably aren't aware of - check your control panel for more info) and am now having my Flash saves backed up on a daily basis. Of course, they may still get purged right before the backup's made, right after I've spent pain-stalking time plowing through some new highly addicting Flash RPG, but at least now I have backups, and no longer need to copy the folder manually on random occasions.
The one downside to Windows built-in scheduler is that you can't have tasks run on a more frequent basis than daily - at a specified time. I'd rather have this specific task run a few times each day, just to be on the safe side, but to do that I'd need a different program.
Apart from Flash Saves, I've also had some trouble with a recent FileZilla update which for some reason messed up my connection settings. I've spent this morning toggling options and through trial and error finally figuring out that if I connect to a very specific port, use SFTP instead of regular FTP via TLS and have a passive connection limited to 2 concurrent uploads/downloads at any one time - it works!
Setting minor computer issues aside, and what appears to be Pericoronitis (Infection Near Wisdom Tooth), the week's been well. Winter started again, and the last three days (today included... though that's the week after this week's post) it's been snowing for three days straight. I've just been out shoveling snow, shoveled snow this morning, shoveled a little snow yesterday, shoveled so much snow the day before that I wondered if I'd be able to even raise my arms the day after. It's OK, I can raise my arms just fine! Don't mind the gruelingly sore muscles that tell me it's snowed waaay too little this winter, until now. But tomorrow, on my first work day of the year, I hear it's all about to melt away again and make way for a particularly difficult first bike ride to and from that place to which I bike (work).
I've written, I've played Pokemon Rangers, I've read comics, I spent a day with a buddy, I spent a day wondering how my calender had mysteriously vanished (by some mischievous miracle it'd wedged itself behind my computer desk, far from the place it usually hangs around) and yesterday I recorded /mp3/1/Week-2-2015.mp3">this little thing which I was planning to make something more important out of, but that was before I stumbled upon a couple of One Piece clips on YouTube and in sudden One Piece frency watched through 12 episodes straight in the Impel Down Breakout arc. There's room for self-betterment yet, and a few more episodes of that today...
On the blog I've posted 6 movie reviews, a plug, a bad review (fuck Hosting Cove's horrible support), music, and here's last week. And I'm just about to post my resolutions...
