Setting up web deployment from Github

I've decided this is going to be my project tonight.

Basically I think it should work like this

1. Use Git to manage version history
already doing this

2. Store repository on Github
currently storing the repo on my HostGator server

3. Work locally and push commits to Github when ready
currently pushing commits straight to the bare repo on the server, which updates the working directory

4. Navigate to a Deploy interface and press a button to deploy the Master branch from Github

Leave a comment if you see a blaring mistake or if you'd like to know the results!

DONE.

"If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball!"

Erm.. or some scissors.

scissor_attack_by_daul-d3foh4n

I disturbed a pair of scissors that were on a shelf in my bathroom.

I pulled my towel down after taking a shower this morning and they were hiding underneath.

I saw them fall and they would have landed on my foot if i hadn't moved it like a ninja!

Which got me wondering.. are their techniques to improve reflexes?

It also made me wonder about time perception. You know, the whole "bullet time" thing isn't unfounded.

But is it possible to consciously slow down the perception of time?

I once fell off a 2-story building. It felt like I was in the air forever.. as time slowed down.

Of course, it sped back up when I hit the ground.

That part sucked.

Get your 8am xanax fix!

Just.. make sure you don't fuck up and go to the wrong house.

Some old, half-toothless man rang the doorbell this morning at 8am.

I thought it was a friend of mine coming to take me to work, but alas, it was not.

Here was this man missing half his teeth, holding his hand extended with a $10 bill.

Confused the shit out of me. I open the door and he's standing there, trying to give me money.

Anyway, with a short delay he decided it was time to speak. He said "I wanna get some of those xanax", at which point he actually half-smiled a little bit and in the most creepy way possible.

My response, obviously, was a simple and firm "no."

Not good enough for this guy!

"Your roommates then?"

"No"

"You're not the guy in the red car sitting out there that said to come upstairs for xanax?"

"No."

"Does he live here?"

"No. Bye."

And I closed the door.

 

Have you ever been woken up by a neighbor for something weird?

Tell me about it in the comments

Daydream about a machine that cancels out ice cream truck music

I've lost count of how many times I've been irritated by ice cream truck music. Not sure if it's the loudness of it, the tune they're using, or the pitch, but something about it makes me instantly irritable and anxious.

no-ice-cream-trucksSo I was thinking, would it be possible to broadcast BACK a reverse sound wave and cancel it out?

I don't know too much about the technicalities of it but I imagine I'd need to get my hand on the recordings they use, make a reverse copy, and have some sort of real-time music analysis (like Shazam).

then play it back. preferably at a higher dB.

How are these creeps still in business anyway? There's a publix 1 block to the east and a sweet bay 1 block to the west.

Oh, AND IT'S WINTER. GO AWAY.

D:<

But for real, anyone know if the reverse ice cream truck annoyance ray is possible?

We can build it with a raspberry pi
