Any Hackintosh help out there would be appreciated?

Standard

My 2009 iMac has been running slow is fine for basic things, but for trying to render video it takes forever. (\maybe about an hour and a half for 3 minutes.)
Anyways, long story short, I bought a used ASUS ROG laptop from Newegg, because I couldn’t justify spending the extra money for a MacBook pro, let alone a refurbished one. The other day I finished the El Capitan installer download and have it on the usb drive.

I’ve been following the installation instructions, and I get to the disk utility part, and when I go to erase the partition that I want El Capitan on, it says it’s done/error, the partition is formatted for mac but somehow becomes full al of a sudden. I tried the same thing with another partition and it basically did the same thing, but I as able to get it back so Windows was able to recognize it.
I still have the one partition that’s basically full that’s Mac Formatted. Since it’s formatted for mac it won’t show up in windows
Is there a terminal command I can use to fix this problem?

Mission Impossible style After Effects project

Standard

I’m kind of a newbie to after effects, I know how to do basic kinetic Typography but I have an idea for something and I want the start of it to be like the mission impossible burning fuse going across the screen/ ghost protocol intro. Would anyone know how to go about doing this or know of any good tutorials? I’ve been trying to find them, but I’ve had no luck. or any other super cool spy sequence would be nifty too

I just hit the big 10!

Standard

woooo!!

You’re probably like, what’s John talking about? ten isn’t a big number. oh, and I’m talking about followers on WordPress. I’ve been on here since November of 2011 and I finally hit ten followers, isn’t that exciting?

People actually like my thoughts and everything else that I put on here. So Later on, you’ll find more book reviews(maybe by the end of the week or early next week you’ll have a view from me for Unstuck.), comic news, and anything else I feel like putting on here. Maybe even a little bit of Michael Bublé, but who knows?

(Random little sidenote – I definitely like how to get an accent on a mac you just have to press down the letter for a few seconds, menu comes up, press the button, and presto, you have an accented letter.)

 

and now a silly question to ask you fellow WordPress people  – When you have the follow me by email widget on the side and it says join however many number of followers, is that the number of people that are following your blog? because mine says 406, and that’s a pretty big number. (oh, and I even have a friend who told me he subscribes to  my blog via rss feeds, wooo)
