Hello, I'm Ian. I'm an inventor. I build rockets. I support STEM. I build robots. I'd love to hear from you. Want me to explain anything. Got a certain math or science problem that's bothering you. Just ask it and I'll answer!
Distractions, everyone has them. Everybody has them. They are addictions. For some people it’s Farmville, others it’s battlefield 3. For most, it’s Facebook and other social networks. As I said, they are addictions. They have the same capacity to damage relationships. That is, if you let your distractions take the place of your relationships, good times will not be had. Case and point, if I took time away from Tumblr and Facebook, I would be spending a lot more time with my family and friends. Everyone has them.
This also goes for work! If you let your distractions take time away from your work, you’re not likely to go far. This includes studying and education in general. School is a job. If you don’t give your job your fullest attention, then you will only get what you give.
Distractions are addictions. People go through Facebook withdrawals. Everyone has them. Some people have a handle on them. Some people think they do. But everyone has them. So this is a wake-up call to everyone, don’t let your addictions ruin your relationships, work, education, life.
So as you may have figured out, I am an amateur photographer. Well, the other day I went to look at my more recent imports and to my dismay, somehow, someway they all got deleted. I’m still unsure as to how that happened. When I import my pictures I have my computer clean out the card. So at this point I fear they all have been lost. So I googled around and got a few deleted file recovery programs. I recover most of them. Pretty much all of them really except my favorite picture of the whole set. A chuck of the picture had been written over by a folder. So halfway down the picture it turns grey(can’t be rendered).
So do I pout and be sad? Well yea, a little bit, but instead I decide to fix it. What do I do? I open the jpg with a text editor! That’s right folks, the old fashioned way. Anyway, I found where most of the folder data chunk was and deleted it! Then proceeded line by line until the color channels were lined up right and BAM, the picture is almost saved. What I’m missing is an eight pixel wide line going horizontally through the middle of the picture. With a little bit of GIMP work(cause I don’t have Photoshop) I managed to make that go away.
That’s right, I fixed a corrupted jpg with a text editor. If you’d like to know more about how I did it step by step so you can save your own pictures, please do message me, I would love to help you save a photo of yours!
