The Blog of VinLark
Hello! Welcome to my blog! Here you will find my ramblings and stuff. Maybe what I did a certain day or something. Whatever.

So, I don't know if you remember my blog "IDEs; The solution to a non-problem" (I hope you don't) but in that blog I basically said the really stupid statement of "you don't need IDEs because you can just create every file with a text editor and compile them with a terminal". Looking back on this blog entry I'm ashamed of it and boy does time fly because i remember making this blog just yesterday, not last year.
Back in 2017, be me. Making 0.04kb python files that nobody would ever look at ever. I didn't see the reason for an IDE because I wasn't making anything WORTHY of an IDE.
Now be me in 2018, learning C. Programming something with an actual fucking MAKEFILE. With 17 files I have to watch over. In an actual programming language.
So yes, an IDE here saves my life. I love it. Sublime text makes my life so much easier. I can go to each of the files in a directory without looking at my file manager. It's amazing. It auto-completes functions for me. Ahh its great!
Lesson learned here is to never listen to somebody that doesn't have experience. Though I don't think you guys listened to me anyway.
Ah ha ha, so, I've made it a rule of life to nt use iTunes, but oh man, it's hard when dealing with apple products. Let me tell you a story.
So my friend gave me his old iPad 2 because his sister got a new one (it was his sister's) and it was in fair condition. It took me a few days to get a charging cable but i did. I charged it up and it turned on. Works fine, but it was locked with a passcode that my friend didn't know. Oops. So I ask around on the r/jailbreak discord on what i could even do with an iPad 2.
Oh, apple is still signing ios 6, from there i can upgrade to ios 8 and untether jailbreak! Sounds awesome, right?
Well, if you remember my old blog about itunes restoration , then it's not that easy....
I download the ios 6 file, try to restore. It should work, but it doesn't. Nothing works. I end up downloading another ipsw file and it doesn't work.
I have to stay up untill 12AM just trying in vain and praying that it will restore. It ends up restoring to ios 6 and i downgrade to ios 8.
ITunes is such a piece of fucking garbage.
What am I doing, not including a link? Link: https://vinlark.github.io
Oh hell yeah. It's been awhile. I said how I was working on a website about a year ago in my "Bash" blog post. The website I was working on was really a basic project that I gave to myself so I wouldn't be bored. But this website grew over the year and it was growing too big for it's shoes to say the least. I had web pages that didn't fit the theme of my old website design and everything was mismatched. One page had header titles spanning across and another had only a header title and paragraph links. Picture below is the old site:
And this is what forces me to create my own site. Every template I saw were "modern" "sleek" "inspirational" websites made for blogs. I wanted my site to be a landing page. I wanted my site to do one thing, and to do it well. My new site:
I think it looks really nice. I can't say much more then what is said in the main page. I really like the sidebar. That is nice. My 404 page is awesome also.
But thats not all. Let's take a look at my blogs. This is what I'm proud of. I didn't create this though, the fine man known as Thiago Rossener created this blog template. If you want it yourself you can look here https://github.com/thiagorossener/jekflix-template. I moved all my blogs from GBATemp to my blog site. It integrates nicely. I'll still be blogging here, they just might be posted on my site first. This blog will. This is my blog.
All of my blogs are on their. Looks pretty nice to me. The template is absolutely amazing.
Thanks for reading, see you later.
Hey, so I don't think I've done one of my blogs that wasn't vapid jokes in 2018. I've mostly been off of GBATemp. Anyways, heres another one of these.
Starting with the start of the year. I got a ryzen system. I built some computer with a ryzen3 and ddr4 memory.
School has been doing fine. Start of high school is pretty alright all things considered, i'm just going through the motions of being a teenager.
There really isn't much to talk about that I want to talk about, wish there was.
So I found this on 4chan. What do you think
>begins soft with Fe and Hollow Knight release dates, February 23rd
>Yoshi will release May 4th, called Tale of Two Knitties
>Kirby releases March 2nd to keep with Switch anniversary
>Fire Emblem Direct in April
>Mario Maker in development, will permanently replace traditional 2D Mario games
>Xenoblade Chronicles X and Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze ports round up the Wii U ports on the system
>Pikmin 4 is coming, but will be talked about more at E3. Is a significantly smaller game, think original Pikmin. eShop only.
>Pokemon and Online will be talked about later in the year, expected to be advertised hand in hand with each other
>Xenoblade Chronicles 2 DLC is an alternate universe story mode where Shulk became the god and is a mini-campaign where you have to take him down. Priced at $20, post-E3 release.
>Every Mighty Switch Force game launches for Switch January 11th
>Hotline Miami collection gets a physical release, date unknown
>Ruiner coming in the summer, presumably with Hotline Miami
>No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again trailer shown. Shantae and Snipperclips make the other 2 indies that appear in the game. Coming in September, but an exact date isn't revealed.
>All first-party titles from GameBoy-GameBoy Advance will be the Switch Virtual Console library from January to June MOTHER3 excluded
>South Park games coming to Switch packaged like Bayonetta 1+2
>Wolfenstein 2 coming June 6th. Has all DLC.
>Direct ends with an Animal Crossing teaser. July 27th release.
This to me is giving way too much credit to the switch and Nintendo in general.
Aight fam so I tasked myself with trying to finish this game. Let me tell you about it
DDLC is some VN that hides behind the "CUTE GIRLS BUT SPOOPY" mask. Something that isn't suppose to be scary but woah it turns scary. Let me just say, it got me. First off, it started very slow. I was bored throughout the whole first act. I was mad at my character for being a social outcast who can't talk to women. God. Then it makes a 360. Soyrity (or whatever her name was) bimbo red head says she has depression. Made me cringe more then anything. I pick the thing where I confess my love to her and then the next day she commits suicide. RIP. But it's done it this "woah look at it its breaking the game" kinda thing where it shows an exception error. It supposedly ends. But now the menu is scrambled. Woahg.
You start the game, like before. But bimbo is now scrambled name. The moment she appears on screen her sprite is scrambled and the music starts looping and god fucking damn I HATE when that happens so I exit it. Scared me tbh. I'll play it tomorrow maybe i'll feel better.
TL;DR Baybbies first meta game scared me and now I don't want to play it anymore.
Other than that, I have strep for the 50th time this 2 years and I hate it.
Alright, so I think I've been doing good since i formatted Windows 7. I got my GPU, everything has been going smoothly. I have created a backup and everything is nice. I have 2TB in my system, life is good. I have W10 and arch installed. Awesome. Or so I thought
Things are too good, let's start from the beginning. My friend gave me this 500GB hard drive, he just gave it to me. Alright. I also found my 1TB HDD so I made some backups. Important! I was running Windows 10. Not the best, and my wifi drivers were making my PC crash everyday b-but it works. So I use this 500GB drive for my Games partition, a HUGE space of my W10 drive that was being taken up.
Woah! I have space available! Let me just partition it...................
Oh wait. Windows 10 makes a retarded system reserved drive. K. I can't move the space in front, so I make a system image. System images will be reliable right? I mean, Windows handles it! It's a 1 time backup solution!
000000000000000HHHHHHHHHHHHHHH WAIT NO IT'S NOT BECAUSE IT WAS MADE BY SOME POO IN LOO INDIANS ((((SPOILERS)))))
So I format my whole hard drive with the System Image in my Backup drive and reinstall it. I boot from installation media and I click "Restore from system Image"
It finds and recognizes it
I click next
It confirms it
WHAT IS THAT?
DAMN I GUESS IT WAS JUST GOING TO GOOD FOR ME
Now I'm where I started. Arch Linux. But the different time is my WiFi drivers going out every 3 fucking minutes because it was coded by some neck beard not caring about quality but caring about MUH OPEN SOURCE FOSS
I'm downloading a program on Linux to crack open these system image files and I'm hoping to Jesus, lord, and the holy spirit to be pure files and not be split files.
On other notes, I got gifted a bible today for Thanksgiving. That was cool.
Alright, so I needed Windows 7 for gayming and video editing. I've had this partition with windows on it for a little bit but it was 32bit. I decided to just wipe it and start again.
Let's get some quick context to the front
This is a fresh installation of Win 7
7200RPM Hard drive
Almost never used drive
First off, I couldn't even install it onto the HDD the normal way off a USB. I had to burn the ISO on the hard drive and then install it that way. Thanks Microsoft.
I install it, my graphics drivers, and wifi drivers and i'm off.
So just trying to update my fucking system was a HUGE hassle. Windows doesn't offer an ISO with all updates packed in, so I had to download 300+ updates at one time. The thing is, Windows update system is so messed up and shotty, it won't update without other updates which require this update which require this update. Amazing stuff.
After that, trying to download anything was a huge hassle. Windows took 2 minutes to start up while on my 2006 Compaq it took 60.
I couldn't even play games at the end. DirectX couldn't sign some cert file and I did everything I could to make it. I couldn't even install fucking .NET for sony vegas or literally anything that runs on Windows because it always got "corrupted".
Also, about those updates? It stopped at 64% and wouldn't download them anymore. With the error "Windows is trying to install other updates right now. Try again in a few minutes"
I'm going to Windows 10. Wish me luck
HOLY SHIT GUYS ITS 12 AM JUST GOT BACK FROM A LIT NIGHT WITH THE GALS LEMME TRY AND EXPLAIN IT ALL SWLOEHWIRTGNOIUENWRGOINOERGJ
Alright, so my school was offering this thing called "Dine and Ride" where it would drive us to a place to eat, and to homecoming and back. My date and me went (with her friends and mine). It was really fun, the highlight though was the after party. I'm gonna get to that later.
So I was so nervous I didn't eat anything but a couple of pieces of lettuce, that would come to bite me in the ass during the dance. I talked with some people and met up with some people and it got to the time where we would go to the dance. We go and it's super fun. Me and her loosen up a bit and dance the night away. But while this was happening I feel like i'm going to pass out or I got slipped something in my drink, because either way I didn't feel too good. Then my friend informs me that maybe it's because I didn't eat anything and only drank water so my blood sugar was null. During this time I sing some Taylor Swift songs and probably when I got too loose. 9 a clock came around when we are bused back to Artspace (the place to eat basically). Here comes the after party.
So we all get to the 2nd floor stage (where we dance) and we have this lit DJ that plays some pumping jams. I proceed to eat some more stuff to avoid death and then I dance some more. It got to the point where we were jumping and dancing so hard the floor actually started caving in. We needed to spread out to prevent this one part of the floor from collapsing. We then literally dance the night away. I leave around 11:45.
All in all, I had a really fun time that I would do even without a date. It was super fun.
Woah finally a blog that isn't a joke? Damn
Ok so this blog post is going to be on a whim, as Gbatemp was kinda down last night.
I went to a highschool event after school, it was pretty cool. But there is also this girl I likes that went to it also. Near the end where we go onto the football field to watch the game. I start breaking the ice and it goes alright. As I am walking to the field the girl and her friend catch up with me. We talk about classes and such. Then the girl I like says "Ya know Vincent, I love having you in Algebra, you're so nice!". I also have her friend in my speech class so she says something along the same line. Her friend is also in my Algebra class.
And this wasn't even coming from a place where I do their homework or something. I just talk to them in those classes.
So a few minutes later we get on the seats. The girl is sitting in front of me and the friend is sitting next to me. The friend is on her phone talking to her boyfriend, somethings going on or whatever. The friend says "WOW did he really just hang up on me?". Me trying to be comedic or whatever just chimes in and says Yes. I get some laughs but then the guy on the phone must of asked who was that because the friend said "Just a boy sitting next to me". Then the girl I like leans closer to her friend and says "that sexy boy next to you." I don't react as I don't think I was suppose to hear that.
So the game goes on and her and her friends talk about homecoming (more girls came later on). They get on the topic of her and she says something like "Well i'm just waiting for somebody to ask me" They make a joke like "Just keep saying hey to him everyday until he asks you". And the thing is, I met her by her saying hey to me in my Algebra class. She's said hey to me ever since.
This girl in particular has been going across my mind for a while now. i just don't know what to do. I would have to have brain damage to not see the signs, right? I want to ask her for homecoming. I also want some other input, as i don't want to talk to my mother about girls and my grandfather is working all week. One thing that really got me was I couldn't see him last weekend.
Alright there goes another blog.
I don't really have any other words to describe it. let's go through it.

This isn't a joke btw. This is what i've been using for the past 2 week. I use shitty public wifi and it stopped working on Arch Linux, so I run off a little partition of Android. it's suprisingly usable. I can do almost everything i can do on arch......well that's a lie but it works.
