I have recorded how to do textures plenty of times but the first one had a lot of coughing, and voice going out with the feeling a needed went through my voice box. Then a had a few with less coughing and I resized the screen to make everything bigger, but the recorder recorded a larger screen, so the actual screen was small and a lot of black space. I had a few recording like that. Then a few recording where it abandon the video and I didn't record anything. Then when I finally edited the last video using an editor to cut out all of the black screen, it looked blurry, and had a low quality. 

I guess I just need to use the largest screen or try to record in the smaller screen one more time. I try to remind myself to show why it is hard to see what the brush is doing with with a medium gray, where the brush will become invisible. Each recording has been about 2 hours, and replaced with another try. 

This is close to 2 hours.

This is a more recent picture of me, and if I look like I have big feet, big hands, and a big body, but a small head then you see it right. I have a small head and reality is not proportionate as books like to claim. Maybe I'm a hairless big foot.

I currently live in North Georgia, in Dahlonega.

I am growing old and fat, but I think I am in great shape health wise.
I started working to become an artist when I was 8, which was in 1966. I did say I was old, and I was not able to draw on a computer until 1994 with Photoshop 2.5 LE.

I always use a mouse because tablets use EM field to detect where the pen tip is. My hand has more Electro Magnetic energy than the pen tip. It is enough to mess up a tablet for 6 months, from one hour of use.
So, I use a mouse. A mouse is a good tool, and cheaper that a tablet.

Website for programming example, with some art. I still need to make a left console to use more button links

Not really. I have benn taking it easy, and applying for jobs I don't get. It always the same old thing. 

I was working on a website and thinking about changing how the recipes are setup. Normally people just read the recipe and follow it. I did that much and I included the nutrition facts. I have a setup that I used once that can select the ingredients and enter the amount, like 3 cups of flour. You select the flour and put in how much, and when you have all the ingredients and amounts, it greats the recipe with the nutrition facts. Right now I am using nutrition facts I total up, and I think it would be good to make it divide into servings by what people get. Like you bake a cake and the nutrition facts says the cake in cut into 12 slices. I am going to change that so people can say how many slices they get, so the nutrition facts can show how much is in one slice. 
Then I am going to get the ingredients setup again to list each all the ingredients I have, so people can find what they need to setup a recipe and get the nutrition facts. 

I deleted what I had, because I wanted to have options like to use teaspoon or cups, and by selecting one the program calculates the amount for teaspoons or cups. Every ingredient is set up for tablespoons, so when it is broken down to teaspoons it divides by 3, because there are 3 teaspoons in 1 tablespoon, and a cup has 16 tablespoons, so it will multiply the amount by 16 to show cups.

All this might sound complicated, and I am doing all this programming, I just like to get feed back on what I have and if my idea of making the recipe adjustable, like using a substitute, and the nutrition facts recalculate to show the changes, or if someone sees 3 cups of sugar and thinks 2 cups is sweet enough, then the calories, and sugar drops to show that change. It is just something I am working on to improve my programming skills, and use what I can do as an example. Maybe someone can see what I can do and hire me to build them a website, or an online inventory for more than one store. 

I know some registers can change the inventory, like when people buy a shop light that model of shop light is removed from inventory, and when someone wants tile, but the store don't have it the check the other stores. When I go online to see if someone has enough ceiling tile and I need 60 cartons and they have 3, then I call to get them to oder more, because it is a waste of gas to find out they don't have what I was there for. That is a problem with a lot of online stores, and what they show is not what they have, or they have more.

People like that don't hire me to fix it, like they don't care. So, I need to show examples of how things can work with many different things I create. 

I have DVD movies listed of every thing I have, and I have digital movies and tv shows, and it includes actors information and movie information and I have a theater to show some example movies. With TV shows like Agent Carter I show any episode that is in the right folder, so if the episode is there then people can watch it. Agent Carter is the only one I have online, but the page is made to show anything that is online. 

I created a flower shop for the employee to shop for the customer, and they select or add a person and the flower arrangements they want, and then the shopping cart shows the total with tax so they can pay, and get a receipt. Then I have other website stuff like my media art and art, and 3d stuff for downloading, stories and other projects, I didn't get into, but started like making a forum. 

I din't have a cell phone, and I built all of this for a PC. I was thinking that the reason people didn't hire me when they see my examples was because it is not for a cell phone. I worked on the recipes so it can work with a smart phone. My cell phone don't show the background and I need to zoom in to do anything, but I think the recipe area works good for a cell phone. 

I have themes so people can chose how they want it to look when they visit, and it changes and stays that way when they look around the website. I created a file manager so people can upload files to the website, but I don't let anyone see more than a picture of it, because it can delete and mess up my website is anyone can change things, so the only ones that can see it needs to login and have administration rights.

So, I did a lot of building to this website, and I like to get a comment on what you think.
