Hey, this resolution isn’t busted yet ūüôā Page 214… did the random number thing.¬† My code worked the first time with all four little additions. ¬† I”m getting disgustingly good at copying code, but… that isn’t the same as making it. I *think* I’m processing the “that’s an equals sign, do duly note that!” Also, […]

plugging on :)

Today I successfully cleaned off enough space on the big desk in the middle room to put this computer. I’m on page 148, having decided to go back and do it all instead of skipping to “decision making.” I hate that I don’t really remember anything, tho’ it all still makes sense. Okay, at page […]

… no, you can’t even do the “copyoing” part in a lab with stuff going on.¬†¬† So.¬† Won’t bring the puter tomorrow. Therfore, it will be moribund.¬† I’ll bring the book though, and upload teh files to flash so if it’s utterly moribund I can sneak down to where there are macs in our midst.

We’re Baaaaaack!

I*hope* it wasn’t as busy yesterday (first day of classes) as it is today in the lab, since I wasn’t here. ¬† It’s quieted down now — only 7 people, adn working independently.¬† Not only the usual “how do I do this online?” and “Can I print my schedule?”¬† but lots of people doing Math. […]

Quiet house so I’m doing and grokking. (Or, I was ’til people got home, but they’re not kiddos).¬†¬†¬† I’m editing code and telling myself what that code is doing, and reading the code that was already done and reviewing what was done. I’m hoping that I shall fairly easily imprint on the brain the somewhat […]

… okay, so I made an “)therPage” and then deletedPondPage¬† (the one layer guy) and then renamed other page PondPage, but now the program doesn’t think there’s a PondPage.¬† Eat worms. So maybe since I did that I have to go back and find where I ‘called’ it and say do that again?¬† I thought […]

12:12 in 2011. on 1/8. Okay, “open project like we told you how to do it before.” Open doesn’t **really** mean open, I realize after several minutes of frustration.¬† It just means show you the files so you can open the ones you want. I hope. It’s a Mac thing, you wouldn’t understand.¬†¬† Welp, if […]

Okay, now I hit undo a few times — in the POND BUTTON edit page, mind you, and only a few times. Welp, now I no longer have layers.¬†¬† I have thes ame flogging graphics, but no “foreground” or “background.”¬†¬† So, I guess I get to do this over. STRIKE ONE.¬† (I am not really […]

YMMV

Okay, Saturday’s efforts!¬† “YMMV”¬† — the book says one thing, but that’s not what’s actually happening.¬† Actually, the book says two conflicting things … So the book says that “a black keyframe will appear in the OVER state, and all the graphics from the previous state will be copied into it.” Then it says, a […]

Another hour —¬† okay, probab’ly really 1.5; the airport stuff was nice because I didn’t even try to use the ‘puter, but just read closely.¬†¬† Thus, I found what I’d skipped to make the button do its “gradient transform” (um, didn’t make it a gradient first), and might have found the next issue (did I […]
