124. Newly redesigned

Over the last 2 weeks, I redesigned from this:

To the responsive design it now presents:

92. New Wiki

I’ve created a new wiki for anytime I need a wiki for something, it is located at and currently only has information about mods on the Impact Hacked Client for Minecraft.

82. Downtime & Weather Query Script Issues

Yahoo recently made an announcement that all YDN customers  need to switch to the more secure OAUTH version of their query API. I was unaware of this, and as a result from apparently the 15th of March, my site has been unavailable and I was just seeing a cached copy. I’ll get the weather script remade for the new OAUTH protocol, however it now requires either finding a new query source, or making an account with yahoo to set up…

80. Live Interactive PHP/Javascript Weather Script Update

The clouds above change speed/color/count according to the actual weather for Carlsbad at the moment. I’ve changed a lot since the earlier versions, mainly there is now something for basically every type of weather. The clouds change type(color) depending on the type of weather, and speed depending on the wind speed.

41. About Me

Joey Babcock (Me)

This is me (Joey Babcock) Circa 2014

About Me:

I am 18 years old, and a Computer Science student at UC Santa Cruz. I mainly like to program in web design languages – HTML, CSS, Javascript, SQL, and PHP – and have taken two classes in computer science, including one offered by a community college. Another hobby I’m into is making/transcribing music.  I was in my school’s orchestra for 5 years and played the cello. I am now in ASB under the technology committee so that I can put my skills to work!

I’ve been programming since 8 or so, but I really began when I received my first Arduino Mega, at age 10. Since then, I’ve expanded my knowledge to learn a number of other languages for many different applications. These include the web design languages listed above, as well as a few others such as Java and C/C++(Arduino).

I attended Sage Creek High School for 4 years, from 2014-2018.

Computer Courses I’ve Taken:

  • In late 2015 to early 2016, I took a college-level computer science course on java offered by my school as a night course. I finished the class with a 101.84% and got a 125% on the final.
  • Starting late 2016 to early 2017, I took a high school level computer science course (a step back I suppose 😉 and got a 104% in it and a 121% on the final for the first trimester.

About This Site:

This site began as a place for me to experiment with my new found enjoyment for web design in late 2010. I later put it online as in September of 2010, this site has endured countless crashes/hacks/downtime due in no small part to my small but ever-increasing knowledge of code. As of right now, it is on its 6th complete redesign and the 3rd server. This site is currently hosted by GoDaddy and uses WordPress for the blog, and a custom theme that I designed for the homepage.

Find me elsewhere:

You can usually find me under the username “Joeybab3”, but occasionally, especially if I registered a while ago, I’ll be under “Joeysfishtank”.

7. Hello and Welcome.

As my first post, I’ll explain what you’re here for… For the most part, I’ll just be posting stuff im working on, if you are looking for arduino-related, you can find that HERE. I enjoy programming my arduino, and working on my fish tank. So as you can guess I combine those hobbies to create things like this.

(Keep in mind I filmed this 2 years ago…)

**Going this far back will result in pages like this that link to stuff that doesn’t work anymore…
