So on an actually serious note

May 25, 2024 — t̷h̷e̷8̷w̷o̷o̷d̷c̷u̷t̷t̷e̷r̷

I decided I am going to build yet another web application. This will be my second flask web application and will be a growing of a couple of eve online game tools that use the game's API. Flask is a really cool lightweight web application framework using python language and it's often used for constructing API's. It seems to me to only make sense that it should be well suited to work with API's all around. As well it does have some JSON commands embedded into it that simplify API calls. I want to pursue my lust of web application building and along with building this new project I also plan to try and seal the deal, per say, or rather finish musicplace.vip. It's mission in life, that web app of mine, was always simple and of a certain point. It has basically served to create the solution I sought.

o about the new application I need to solve two eve online game problems. One is the tiers of industry materials/items and their interconnecting complexity. It is very difficult to perceive what is needed for what when the blueprints, materials, minerals, etc are cascaded on multiple tiers and have, although a fixed structure generally, a non linear structure that differs for all end result items. I've used a couple of other "industry calculators" and indfustry tools but I want one that will just simply programmatically spit out a tree of what is needed, what is given, what is next and make it printable so a guy can upload the text file to eve and use it to purchase on the market. I actually have a vision of this, as I've thought about it for most of my time playing eve. I love that this game has such a detailed API access for all players.

Another thing, thought for some reason I cannot see it anymore, my one character's networth balooned to well over 100 billion isk and I do not know why. I would like to be able to search my inventory, which can be listed with some details (I would iagine), but based on estimated value like it shows in a tooltip in game when you hover over it. Imagining that somewhere, somehow, a publicly available subset or aggragate of market data exists I might use it, and keep it's regularly updated data refreshed in my application then program a method to search by value of item. That is according to estimated value or perhaps Jita/Amarr (faction trade hubs) buy/sell price at the time. Now I just thought here that I could probably get away with even only using data from the major hubs, or a selection of hubs, or depending on the complexity of information I could grab even a customizable set of data of market prices. Whatever.

Suppose that this can be a learning exercise for effectively coordinating API calls, a unique web front end and a considerable size of data. Plus not forgetting the logic involved in these functions is kind of extensive.

I'm not going to place high expectations on myself at the moment, due to a great discomfort with my life's situation lately and that being volatile to my ability to focus, but, if only I started then I should finish it at some point and be damn proud.

As a last piece of interest: I've stated a new goal today that is to be working effectively in the IT industry by my mid 40s (less than 10 yrs or approx). So if such a project idea as this one sustains and is maintained then it might help me down the road :) Cheers to beers friends!

A mission in life?

January 11, 2022 — t̷h̷e̷8̷w̷o̷o̷d̷c̷u̷t̷t̷e̷r̷

It's one mission in my life to help out in the open source community. For starters on this mission I helped g1n with his GRU homepage for his Unix project. You can check it out >here< as it is also made with a bashblog. His devlogs are of the >bashblog< use and that's where I learned bashblog here as this blog, is from designing that site from the old text only it was. This was my honest open source contribution for the new years so far! I was very happy with it now I'm very happy with this one too :D

So the mission is to find people to collaborate with. I know PHP, BASH, HTML/CSS, enough about MySQL to implement it, LAMP servers and various other things like networking and system administration. Hoping one day soon this year 2022 I can work together with others :)
