My First Blog Post

Hello, world: An intro post on my blog.

Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.

— Oscar Wilde.

Hello, I am Samuel Lord, an autistic (not kidding, actually am autistic.) man-child born in 2001. The same year HAL9000 was *supposed* to be made, they made me. My skills? Programming, eating, sleeping, working with computer-based technology. Enjoy my website, I guess. It’s almost my bed time. Goodnight.

Update: If you want my old blog, here it is:

Go old-school!

How to install ROBLOX/GeForce Now in Linux

Just a quick note before the post: If this looks familiar, that’s because it is. It is highly based off of my old post from my old blog.

WARNING: THIS REQUIRES A BEEFY COMPUTER! ALSO: GENYMOTION IS FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY. DO NOT USE IT FOR BUSINESS. ALSO: THIS IS MEANT FOR POP!_OS…

  • Download GenyMotion from here
  • Reboot
  • Set up GenyMotion and choose the Google Pixel 3 on Android 9
  • Install Android Oreo ARM Package shown here (Drag and drop)
  • Reboot VIRTUAL DEVICE
  • Install GAPPS (Click the button to the right, near the top of the window, marked OpenGApps)
  • Reboot VIRTUAL DEVICE
  • Download the latest ROBLOX apk here and/or GeForce Now from here.
    • Hint: type “com.roblox.client” without quotes for the ROBLOX client.
  • Install (Drag and drop)
  • Once you have done all those steps, it should work!
    • Disclaimer: You might have to do a ton of captchas!

How to: Add a USB controller

Ok so basically you have to add yourself to the group “vboxusers” by running:

sudo usermod -a -G vboxusers $USER

and rebooting. Then download the VirtualBox Extensions Pack and install it. Lastly, go to your Virtual Machine Settings for your device (should be the name of your Genymotion instance), then go to USB, change it to USB 2.0, and add your USB controller (Mine was called “GAME For Windows” because mine was a bootleg XBOX 360 Controller made for Windows.) Apply changes, click OK, BUT DO NOT START IT FROM VIRTUALBOX. Instead, close VirtualBox, and start it from GenyMotion. Ta-da! It should now work!

GEMS, the hardest project we ever did.

So… I am not Sparksammy but sparksammy has allowed me to write blog posts, so let’s talk about GEMS. GEMS is literally the hardest project we have ever done, there are bugs EVERYWHERE, and it is hard to find and fix each individual bug. but we are improving.

What is GEMS?

Gems is a OS made by me and Sam, and obviously. it. is. so. hard. you first have to make a kernel and bootloader which Sam has made (Thanks Sam) and then you have to make the OS itself which is very frustrating, to make this slightly better, we made a To-do list. I have to improve the OS code itself, and Sam has to fix the bootloader bugs.

we decided to use Lua for the OS code itself.

“it won’t even boot, but we are getting there! we will one day get a successful build that just prints “Hello World!””

I am trying to rewrite the entire OS code which might take some time but for now, we are taking a break. everything is going good so far, Sam is an amazing programmer.

This project has made me and Sam very very stressed but we are taking a break to focus on other things, like Sparksammy’s blog!

Internet is down. It sucks.

Hello, world! 👋

I hate it when my internet doesn’t work, space don’t you? I mean it really sucks a lot. Darn it. 🤦‍♂️

Shoot, it sucks so bad that didn’t even get to voice chat my great pal Oklomsy! Plus I was only able to use my phone for internet, because my mom doesn’t want me tethering. I don’t blame her, but it still sucks a lot. 🤷‍♂️

Oh well, I guess I ought to take a nap. Good night. 😴
