Project Genesis: It’s Too Big To Handle

Redwing

The continuous build of The Genesis Project is currently slow moving. The scope of the project probably too big to handle at one go. This project targets to have me a start of my portfolio as a web developer. Currently I am documenting everything and mapping the values correctly that stops me on the current version.

The Next Version will be Huge
Putting it into perspective, all huge things started small. The planning that I am doing right now is to have the smallest detail on the first wave and put fixes and patches along the way. The first version was giving it one go which give me a lot of fixes on bugs and yet the important features of the project has put on hold.

The Key is Agile
Relatively if I will put it into tiny chunks I will have faster responses on bug fixes. This approach called Agile. Though its more of a team effort since I am the only in the team to do this, I will organize my self as that I am on a team, I have no choice.

I am On Track
Currently the time is not measured so I devised a “celled” time tracking since I can’t afford one yet, that would track my progress. Why should I track my progress? To have a benchmark on how fast I can do the job.

Putting up a project is a very tough decision to make. I should commit to it and try finish something before my skills fade and rot.

Operation Clean Slate: I Did Not Know Windows Has A Reset Button

Reset

Yes, I just recently reset my laptop. If in life I could have that? And in only one particular aspect I can reset it. And I thought my wife is a complicated woman yet here I am.

Before you move on to the next website you want to visit, this is not about life. So I just pressed that “reset” button and it’s really liberating letting go your files, well, not all of them, I backed them up but the your overflowing Downloads folder and your junky Documents folder, finally they are free.

I even tweet that damn, reset button! And forgot to backed up my bookmarks and I am like Thanos to harvest them all again. Also my MySQL databases it was all wiped out, good thing it was documented.

The Reset feature of windows 10 is really a harmless button. Specially to those who bought their laptop with pre-installed Windows 10 Operating System (OS). Details are not that helpful, I was asleep through the whole process. It just came to the point that it needs a few details and it needs you to link it to your Microsoft Account. The process was easy, the hassle are the updates, it will catch up all of the updates, so you need to restart from time to time, especially on small patches.

It will be around 6 – 8 hours reset process so make sure the laptop is plugged. The reset button is safe if you are worrying that you lost your key or something, it did not asked me for some key or call a customer service representative to assists just a few setup questions and that’s it, your laptop is good as new.

Childish Gambino Video ‘This is America’, Entertaining Yet Disturbing

This Childish Gambino guy a.k.a Donald Glover is really funny in ‘This is America’ video. He got my attention.

I don’t usually peek in to something that is not good to my ears. I am thinking negatively in a ‘repeated’-lyric songs. The video is good I give him credit to that, but there are just so much violence in the video that my impression I am watching an Iron Man movie.

Having a person got shot in a video is very disturbing.

The video is entertaining it has nice beat to it, and the moves are genuinely entertaining. Yes that’s my selling point the dance moves. The video is plainly simple but I think there is a hidden story behind it why it is arranged that way. Maybe there are hints in the video that I am not aware about, that there should be a social impact to it, nah! I did not guessed it but I have a strong feeling there is.

I don’t want to meddle to the dispute if there’s one, the totality of the video is entertaining to me but there is a part that there is weight to it that I am not sure of. In the end it left wondering, what did I just saw?
