Rey Skywalker?

My brother and his wife popped by for dinner this evening and, as it usually does, the dinner conversation quickly became about Star Wars – more specifically, who Rey’s parents are. After The Force Awakens was released I liked the idea that Poe Dameron could be force sensitive and that Rey could very well be a Kenobi or Skywalker. Since...

Shiny Starter Pokémon

It’s been a while since I hunted a Shiny Pokémon so I decided to dive in head first with a Charmander starter in FireRed on the Gameboy Advance. Per encounter, the odds of having a Shiny Pokémon appear are 1/8192, or 0.01220703125%, so I expected this to take a few hours a night over the course of a couple of weeks....

Free SSL Certificate? Yes Please.

I discovered earlier that I needed to set up a cron job for the mailing list function to work optimally and whilst seeing if this was possible through my webspace provider (it’s not) I saw that I was entitled to a Free SSL Certificate with my package. It doesn’t have any true function on this blog as personal information (other...

Spreadsheet Updates Mailing List

It occurred to me that once somebody copies over their own copy of my EVE Spreadsheet (eventually to be plural) they may not see when updates have been posted. I’ve added a simple mailing list to this site so people can submit their e-mail address to receive e-mails when I release updates. You can find it here: https://www.subliminallyfamous.com/newsletter/

Trading Card Games

I’ve always liked the idea of Trading Card Games and whilst they seem to be a bit of a money-grabber nowadays you can’t deny the appeal of both collecting and playing. I have a reasonable Pokémon Trading Card collection from sets which were released a couple of years ago (Roaring Skies and Primal Clash) and a fair amount of Yu-Gi-Oh!...

(Another) Fresh Start

Since starting this blog over six years ago I have updated the theme and permanently archived the posts a handful of times. The last couple of years have been focused on ≡v≡ Online – before that it was focused around my Pokémon streaming on Twitch and the Pokémon Trading Card game. I started a job in August driving a Grocery Delivery...

Moving forward with my Market Spreadsheet

I’ve been at a stalemate with my Eve Online Market spreadsheet for some time now. When I originally created it it was detailed and worked like a charm, but was messy and vastly data intensive. After I finished adding “the rest” of the item’s on the EVE Market I ran into the Google Quota limit issue and this caused me...

Google Quota Limits

Since my Eve Online Market spreadsheet expanded to include literally every item available through the market browser I have been bouncing off Google’s Quota limit like a fly on a window. Unfortunately I have come to the conclusion that the current method I am using is simply not going to work. There is a hard limit of 20,000 “URLFetch” calls...
