Primus, The Artificial Intelligence Server

With the success I’ve had with the open-source libraries I found for speech recognition and synthesis I’ve decided that that plan is outdated. With a little hacking I was able to glue two systems together with using Python and produce an extremely rudimentary ‘artificially intelligent’ in the manner of two days. This gives me quite a bit of hope.


Rudimentary Artificial Intelligence

The nice thing is that the speech recognition software is purpose fit to run on an embedded system, like the BeagleBone Black or Raspberry Pi.  This is great news, but the greater news is that this is all programmable.


Primus2\Falcraft: New Data Types (unordered/ordered node)

These data structures allow you to define parent and child relationships using a set of vertex information and classes. These are best suited to dealing with a tree of nodes, a common data structure encountered by optimization and artificial intelligence.


Schedules In Air

Actually, I usually gain a desire for anything once I start doing it. I have to make myself actually start doing something, whether I dread it or not, before I start feeling like I actually want to do it. I call it momentum. Getting there is unfortunately a lot harder than it sounds.


Classes and Coffee

I want to learn more about electronics, and even get to the point of being able to be as good at it self-didactically as I am about programming.


Videogame Land

Well, a lot happened in videogame-land when I was not updating the blog as regularly. Rather than post a bunch of posts catching up on things I only half remember, I thought I’d just put up pics of all the things that happened and you can draw your own conclusions.


Photomats In Technicolor

I have to remind myself that a game doesn’t have to fit in a certain style. It astounds me sometimes the types of interactive experiences people are satisfied with and even hail. There are ‘games’ that I wouldn’t even consider ‘games’ that do quite well.


Fursuiting January 2016

So, Saturday I went fursuiting with Isaac Homebrew. It was fun, but the weather was cold, which is what we blamed for not a lot of people being around. I walk around, but not much people at noon Saturday in the cold.


The Neverending Salad

I used to obsess over these kinds of movies when I was younger. I didn’t own any copies of my own, so much like Howard the Duck, Labyrinth, All Dogs Go To Heaven, and others, I had to wait until some circumstance in my life allowed me to see it again (it was usually called cable). I loved those movies.


Incompleteness Theory

So where does this leave the blog? Well, I hope to take the blog up again like I was doing before. It’s a positive influence in my life, and I think that I have interesting and fun things to share. It also helps exercise my brain because I have to remember things, write them down, organize graphics, and such. It also encourages me to do things, more things than just lay on the couch and feel bad, because writing about that obviously is a wonderful idea.


Poochie Cures Cancer: I Like Turtles

Alice looked towards where Morticia’s hand was motioning. It was Jareth Bowie! Where’d he come from? “Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh….” She ran her hand over the top of her head, her bow wasn’t a person, are these people craaaaazy or what?


Passages Of Days

What’s worse is that I can’t wish I was someone else.  I used to wish I was someone else when things got like this, but then I dissociated really bad one time and learned what it was like to be someone else, and I vowed I’d never wish that again.


Dishes For The Week

I know that last time the week lasted longer than the week, and this may be the same way. Sometimes cooking for two is a little hard because they’re always always left overs. Which is okay, but at the same time you better be prepared to like left overs to a certain degree.


Tomodachi Happiness Episode 2

I told Hurricane that she had a love-child with Maus, which made my newest niece make a funny face. It was funny. I told her that their child Audrey looked like a little old lady, but more fascinating was that I set her to travel abroad across and out to other DS systems in other Tomodachi islands. Their legacy lives on!


Leaves and Houses Episode 2

It’s still winter in Kadaria, but the fruit still grows on the trees. The (second-to-) last time I visited there were a lot of dead flowers. More than usual, but I don’t expect much when the temperature outside is -20 degrees. That’s how cold it was in Handyville, so I imagined it was the same in Kadaria.


Winter Vacation

It’s a little frustrating sometimes when I look at the programs that don’t exist yet that I could potentially make a product and fill that gap and make money. But, they’re large and complex and it’s not that I get overwhelmed… I just kind of go, meh. I’m a lazy bastard!


Christmas Snow and Lights

Maus and I went out to Starbucks.  Oh my god, really?  While we went to Starbucks we observed the fresh snow falling and took a few pictures, and a video (below). That day we were hoping to go see the Christmas lights at the light garden off in some other part of Fort Collins.  I guess  it’s sponsored by something or other, I never really paid attention.  I mean, how could you, there’s so many shinies!  One of the cool things we saw was lights under the snow.  These are lights covered up by perfectly pristine snow.  The effect is cool!


Foods and Christmas Parties

So what did we do? Well, what any self-respecting Asher would do. We watched soft-core porn!


Primus2\Falcraft: New Data Type (leaf)

Many times in while programming you want to have a hierarchy of objects.  A hierarchy can very easily be realized as a ‘tree’ of parent elements and child elements.  This is not the only...
