I've heard of SVN before, had a Github account for a while but never really taken the time to learn more details about them. Now was that chance.
I spent much of the morning and afternoon working on a method for collaborating on our group project. Originally I had started work using TortoiseSVN but I didn't discover a server method within Tortoise so I turned to the program VisualSVN. Where Tortoise was integrated into Windows Explorer Shell with VisualSVN it was like a standard application. After a bit of confusion I was able to get the repository shared locally but after numerous attempts I was unable to access the repository from outside of my LAN.

I looked through the UE4 documentation with source control in mind and it appears as though they recommended a suite of programs called Perforce. Everything looked straight forward, I found a cloud hosting service for free using them. Upon first glance I was prep…
We commonly think of them as annoying, a nuisance, something we simply do not want to see at all. Ads. On some sites they are everywhere, others fool you into clicking them by thinking you should be clicking them to download what you want or whatever the case may be. Personally I hate those kinds of deceptive methods.
How often do you think about the reason web sites and videos have them though? The content is provided free of charge. Web sites cost money to host and such, those charges are often times covered by donations and/or the ads themselves.
When the ads are on websites like mine, only when the ad is clicked would I get anything. When the ads are on YouTube videos like mine, one must watch the whole ad or click on it to generate anything.
Thank you for reading this far and I hope you think about it the next time you see an ad on my or other individuals web sites or on a video.
