Modern Day Computers - Technology of the Modern Day
Introduction
Computer geek, casual tech blogger, computer technician with lots of skills and lots more room to learn.
I am working on developing my Modern Day Computers blog at http://moderndaycomputers.com/
I need to put more content on and put in some photos as well.  If I had some followers on my blog that would inspire me to write more and more. :-)

Somehow I have this weird feeling of wanting to hook up my "new" Sega Genesis and play some Sonic The Hedgehog.
It's similar to when I felt the need to buy the Super Nintendo again after I had sold the first one and play Mario games.

It's not even the middle of February and already the daffodils are coming up. They first burst through the ground in December when it was so warm.

Watching #BobRoss on Twitch is such a relaxing experience. They run a season marathon each Monday twice. The time I watch him is from 7 pm to 1 am.

In a way to help me relax from all the stress, I decided to go out to the mall. I may not buy anything, but it gets me out of the house.
As for my job search, I am applying to places and have some prospects, but it's the waiting to hear back that is what is giving me stress.

Cleaning the dust out of your computer is one way to make it last longer. Dust can cause processors to overheat and shut down unexpectedly. I clean my computer at least twice a year.

I have an interview tomorrow with a possible second one later this week or next week, so the beard must go.

When I took my computer outside to clean the dust out of it, the feeling of getting my hands on the hardware and taking parts off and putting them back on was wonderful.
It was suggested by a friend that I should apply to be an Apple Genius. I would get training on how to help people with their Apple products, but just the feeling of making someone happy by helping them with their computer problems is great. I am a hands on kind of guy.

Wow! Look at all that dust that has built up on my graphics card and CPU.

Never before in my life have I felt so scared from not working. Technically I have been out of work for 2 months, but due to the holidays in December, there typically is not much hiring going on then.
I have been to several interviews, so I am getting noticed, it's just the long waiting and in some cases being rejected.
I would have had a small contract to work at Citi again that would have started yesterday, but I was called up for a same-day interview practically 5 minutes earlier for another position when that call for the Citi contract came in a couple of weeks earlier. I had to make a decision right then and there. When you are presented with an opportunity that is at least 3 months long and another that is 2 to 4 weeks long, which would you choose?
Some may say that I should get a job at a fast food place, since it would be income. The problem I have is that my unemployment benefits would go away as I am required to get a job in my field.
In the meantime I am taking a course in programming with Python on #Codecademy. The market is in need of programmers, so I will do my best to understand the logic. I've taken programming courses back in high school and college, but mix it with other classes and it became difficult to understand. Now that I am out of school, I have the ability and time to focus on programming, because it's much like learning a second spoken language, you have to know the syntax to communicate.
I shall weather this storm I am going through. An opportunity will present itself. #ns

For those of you who have gaming keyboards, I ask this question: I am trying to make a macro key that will deploy one of my hunter traps without having to click on it and then move my mouse into place.
I have it set to "/cast Explosive Trap". It works at the very least, but it then puts the slash in my chat bar and prevents me from doing it again unless I go into chat and hit enter. Is there a way to not make the / appear in my chat?
I have a Logitech G510s gaming keyboard with 18 G-keys. I hit the key I assigned the trap to and it allows me to place it where I have the mouse cursor.
I will work on this more, but I wanted to know if anyone else does macros like that. #ns

That absolutely is a violation of the TOS and the Fair Play. If your character is doing an action unattended, it's no good. Chances are, no one has reported you yet or you moved your character. They have the ability to review past actions of characters and do record gameplay of reported characters.
I know more than a few guildies that had been playing for years receive suspensions. A few did it more than once and got perma-banned.

This is a good guide to follow:

Hey #Python programmers, why does len() and lower() have different methods? Why can't I do string.len() instead of len(string) or lower(string) instead of string.lower()?

Check out my working program I created in #Codecademy It is based from the "Sun, Earth, and Code" lab.
I configured it to have the orbits of the planets and moon orbit in relation to the real thing. 1 revolution of Earth is 60 seconds, so I based the number of days to orbit the sun from that. The moon revolves around the Earth once ever 5 seconds.

Check it out!
