My boi, this peace is what all true warriors strive for!

As for what's keeping me busy, I've been playing a bunch of Infinity Engine games lately, as well as the Touhous (I've gotten good at the PC98 ones, as far as me being good at the touhous can go anyway). I loaded up IWBTG the other day, and got past the gnashing spike corridor after about ten tries. The spike corridor right after that took a lot more tries. 20 and counting.

I just got back from grocery shopping. Which for you might mean drive out to the store, pick out stuff, drive back, took 15 mins. But for me it's literally running to the store with a small backpack and gloves and a claw called The Baggler I use altogether for carrying about 50-60lbs of groceries a mile over concrete hills back to the apartment because I don't have a car. I use it as exercise and each time I feel stronger and faster for it and try to beat my time from last week. Today it was a straight hour, but I've still gotta put shit away.

Then I made a script that opens a list of internet tabs I need to watch/read 1 article from per day, and set it to a timer, so that is what I'm doing right now. Another to open job sites so I can try to find a job. These scripts help me be less ADD and keep a better number of tabs open at certain times.

But, right now it's a Blender 3D animation video because I'm trying to be more disciplined in getting back into that.


But I am always here.

Care to share that? I have a bunch of stuff that I like to look through on a daily basis and it would be nice if I could just straight up open all of those tabs immediately when I launch Firefox or Chrome for the first time in a day (or launch a specific script file on my desktop or something).

Gonna try modding Minecraft, considering that college is teaching Java to me too slowly for me to care enough about it. Also I still need to edit the books I wrote, but the first one is so... ehhh, that I don't have any motivation to finish editing it. Second one is a lot better thankfully, but it still needs editz.

Other than that half of the people in my computer logic class are failing, including me probably. And yet he still blames us for not studying enough and tells us to read the book, which he said at the beginning of the year he doesn't like. Something tells me that he sucks as a teacher rather than us as students.

Well it's an Applescript so it'll only work on macs, still interested?

I'm sure there's similar solutions for PC, but I don't know em. Maybe a batch file.

I'm sure if you gave it to me I could probably figure out a Windows solution.
If not, oh well.

Here ya go

tell application "Google Chrome"
   activate
   set aList to get URL of every bookmark item of bookmark folder "DoADay" of bookmarks bar as list
   set aWin to make new window
   repeat with x in aList
      tell aWin
         make new tab with properties {URL:x}
      end tell
   end repeat
   --item 1 of aList
end tell

Is there a automate equivalent in Windows?

In Chrome you have the option to set a range of pages to open when on startup.

I'll have to do it later, but I'll edit this post and see what I can come up with.

Probably can do it with command line arguments in a batch or shell script.

My life has been especially hectic lately. I might write up a more detailed post later once I have more resolution.

Alright, so for Firefox it's nice and easy; put this into a batch file:

@echo off
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox
firefox.exe -new-tab URL
exit

and add in a new "firefox.exe -new-tab URL" for every website you want to visit.

For Chrome, it's even easier because you can have it open up a specific set of tabs on startup.

Nice good job! And if you want you could do another thing I did and set tabs and things to open whenever you open a program

Like whenever I open Logic or Garageband, I want my music collection of bookmarks/files on my computer up. Or Blender, 3D Animation tabs, etc. I think you could set it up almost like I did by replacing the shortcut for said program with a batch file that opens those tabs/files/folders AND the program.

Then just change the icon for the batch file to look like the program you're using it with. How do you do that on Windows btw? In Mac every program is structured like a folder, so you just copy the icon over from the inside of the program to the inside of the script's folder.
