Stuff at College
The College course I am on for bookkeeping is going quite well and the new tray I had made is really making an improvement. It is surprising how well you retain the information when you can actually do the tasks yourself. I always find for me repetition is the best way for me to learn something. The only problem with that is that as soon as I stop doing it I generally forget it unless I have been doing it for quite a while. It came as quite a surprise to me when the lecturer told me that there were only 13 more sessions until the exam. I don't think it is very likely I will get a job with this especially seeing as everybody else on the course already has a job and/or experience with office work or accountancy. However, if I do okay in the exam I might consider doing the accountancy course which would make me a member of AAT and then I would be an accounting technician.
Those other small college courses I was on about (Rasberry pi and basic electronic) didn't turn out as I planned. I was hoping for them to be a lot more theory than practical. As it turned out the electronic course was more wiring plugs than making small circuits which is what I wanted. Also, I don't really have a need to use a Rasberry pi and even if I did it would probably be more convenient for me to buy a book and do it myself.
The new games I was trying out I am not playing any more. I've enjoyed eve but not enough to pay for a subscription, at least at the moment. Also KSP didn't really work out. After several failed attempts to get my little astronauts into orbit I gave up. I figured I was lucky that none of those little dudes perished and that I should not push it too far lest my blood pressure go through the ceiling.
My latest foray into new games was minecraft. I really loved Lego when I was little so the idea of a 3-D game I could play when I could essentially do the same thing really appealed to me. It was a little bit tricky at first especially seeing as I am a one handed Gamer and not really a very good one at that. It took quite a bit of trial and error with glovePIE but eventually I managed to make the game playable for me. I needed to use a combination of glovePIE and altcontroller scripts to do it. Now, whenever I press the right mouse button I can switch the function of the left mouse button. I can switch between attack, use and run. I then use my voice to jump and access the inventory. I cannot really go up against any monsters though
Well that's about it for now. I don't think this really counts as a brain dump as I did the last one quite far through the month. This was just a little review of what I have done so far. Hope you are all well, Bert out.
