Miscellaneous

One reason that we moved from the WordPress site to our own was ads. We have more to manage, but we’re moving forward. Expect a boost in performance sometime in the near future. I had some posts on GitHub and have been using it for 76 days. I am about to start some projects with…

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

Note (10/25/2019): This is the first post written at our own site, after we migrated the posts from the WordPress site. Notice, too, we went two years (from 22 Apr 2017 to 01 Jun 2019) without WP. We’ll have to look at that and report on how we coped ;>). Our first post here was…
