Despite how those two things in the title might seem related, they are not in any way related in this post.
Starting with the positives, I finally made a thing in unity. Its nothing super complex or even much of a game, but I like it anyways. It’s basically just a grid of blocks, but what you can’t see in the picture is that I got the blocks to slowly float up and down giving it that video gamey effect. I would make it into something interactive later, but unfortunately I didn’t save the file after building it, so we’ll have to see if I get the encouragement again. Its basically a 50/50.
We also started our “Deeper Dives” which is essentially just a way for us to learn and design a project in a topic we’re interested in, but might not have much experience with. I chose 3D printing because of my experience with it in the past also it’s the coolest topic. I figured if I learned enough, I might actually be able to make it relevant as an engineer one day.
And now onto the sad part. I’ve literally been trying to get the ethernet port in my bedroom activated for this entire week. I called IT on Monday and they said there was no problem, they just needed the MAC Address. Unfortunately I didn’t have it at the time and they were about to close so I called again Tuesday. Tuesday a different operator said he had no idea what that other dude was talking about and that I had to contact Housing to get my Access Account activated and then active the ethernet from there, but unfortunately Housing closed 2 hours prior, so now it’s Wednesday.
Wednesday I call housing early in the day this time and they tell me I have to call another number to get my problem fixed. And guess who it was… I’ll give you a minute to think… IT the people who told me to call housing!!! So now I’m called IT again frustrated, talking to another man from there department who has no idea what to do and he says he’ll ask around and send me an email. Got an email shortly afterwards saying now all they need is my ethernet jack number, which of course, I can’t get until after work, after they close. So I sent the port information today, probably to the fourth person from IT who is probably very confused, and I’m waiting for them to get back to me. All this work and effort just to get an Xbox online is starting to get a bit frustrating.
The comic from last post would have perfect for today, but since I already used it here’s another as thanks for sitting through that rant.
