Miscellaneous Content

Welcome to this page, which contains things I couldn't really clasify into any other part of this site. There is all kinds of stuff here, like code I'm doing, papers I've written, and anything else relating to me really. In other words, miscellaneous content. By the way, do you even know how hard it is to spell miscellaneous?

The FBCCS Service Archive

This is a project I've been working on ever since at least July 2022, but which has now become a reality. My church, The First Baptist Church Cold Spring, broadcasts their services on YouTube, facebook, their own site, and sometimes over the air on some fm frequency. Well, that's a one of a kind church with a one of a kind preacher, and there was a lot of those services that were so good I wanted to go back and watch them again. So I'd go download them, and hang onto them to revisit. But eventually, I just thought, "why not download every service?" Then I thought, "Why not organize all these into an archive kind of format?" Then I thought, "Why not design a website for these and display them, so other people can go back and watch too?"

I didn't like having to go to YouTube to listen to services again, and I didn't like having to navigate through their constantly changing, and never intuitive, interface. So here's my version.

My English 102 Final

Well I just recently got done with English 102, or Writing II, as they say in the classroom. My professor is pretty cool, so instead of giving us this really dumb, boring test, he told us to write an essay instead. Then, he told us to supplement it with media of a different type. For example, you could write a paper on gun control and augment it with a video as well, so as to appeal to different audiences.

Well, when I read this assignment email notification from blackboard, I had no idea what the heck to do. I was like: "What the heckk, man. How am I gonna do this?" Cause like, I didn't really care all that much about a lot of things that really ground people's gears and stirred them up. Oh sure, I have opinions on common hot potatoes like gun control, abortion, etc, but what could I possibly say... what insight could I possibly provide... that the supreme court, Twitter, and every news media source in the world hasn't already? So then I thought: "well what do I care about then?" And I came up with three things. Athletics, audio production, and computers. This was supposed to be a persuasive project though, and as much as I loved being athletic and producing, there really wasn't a whole lot to argue about. But computers... bruh, everything now is about computers. Like, what part of life in 2020+ do you not use a computer for? So I decided: "hey, I think I'll write about those." So, I fired up word, outlined my essay, and started writing.

As you may know, I'm also a programming hobbyist, so I augmented my paper with a program. Yep, that's right. A program that you download on your computer and run. Pretty cool, huh? Well no, but I thought it was. So my argument was: "Technology is not as great as you think it is." So, I wrote out my paper, and then I programmed a piece of software that would show how stupid computers can be sometimes. I reasoned: "Hey, what better to show people how irritating computers are than a computer?" I didn't do a video. I didn't do a blog. I didn't record a podcast. I wrote some software.
