Motivations

There are several. We have the focus of Thomas Gardner and his times as the overarching framework. This deals, specifically, with the American dream using 1623/24 as the reflection point wherein we deal with before that point and after. Example of after? Last month, we were looking at several topics related to events of the…

New blog

We’re now GitHub’ing along. It’s going quite well. GitHub is a popular system that offers software development support, both public and private. The former has been a hit with the Open Source folks. The latter has allowed companies to coordinate better in terms of tools and facilities. GitHub has added in capability for project management…

GitHub’ing

Ah, the proliferation of abilities. Never ending. On the computer, that is, in all types variants. And, the complexity. Confounded seems to be everywhere extant.  Deep learning is a misnomer. Let us go down into deep thinking and show how this is so. About time? One ML expert (long years of experience) mentioned that he…

Home, at last

Home, at last? Kidding. Today, I bit the bullet and created a GitHub project for our work: PortalToTruth. The name? While I was building the index by image, I created an image for all of the posts that were in the index. For a comment, I mentioned the ‘portal to truth’ aspect of our minimal…

More modern stuff

It’s time to bite the bullet, so to speak. Our minimal approach has been great for the past few years as we tried to cover 400 years of history in an organized fashion. At the same time, we had to keep track of things like content management plus worrying about issues related to configuration and…

Content and configuration

We’re putting together the next issue of Gardner’s Beacon and got looking into this old issue. It has to do with ‘hats’ as they relate to roles. And, this implies lots that relate to cognitive issues. We’ll continue on this theme, which deals with whether there is an AI (or is it a chimera?). One…

ToDo list and more

We have started a renovation project which will consist of several phases. Each of the web sites has an image about this. We started to discuss various themes, such as motivation: Renovation, plus. One of these is that we’re in our 10th year and working on the 2nd issue of Volume IX of Gardner’s Beacon….

Getting familiar

Back during the time that we got off of Microsoft’s older on-line community, we went Linux/HTML/CSS/JS as that was familiar. And, it allowed a focus on content rather than merely configuration. As in, these two are not of the same hat. The choices made then are documented in this blog starting in 2014 with recaps…

WordPress at our site

This was written at the old site: ThomasGardnerofSalem.wordpress.com prior to the movement of the old posts to the new site. The theme of technology will continue. — original post — We’re in the process of starting up WP at our site. The technical blog will move there. This content will be archived. When done, we’ll…

TGSoc.org

We just registered a shorter URL for ourselves: TGSoc.org. This will make emailing simpler. The format is simple HTML/CSS with a little JavaScripting. We will be bringing in more scripting as we work in functionality for membership, registered reading, and such. Recently, we met and agreed to keep with our own VM (rental) rather than…
