Plans for the summer + state of my projects

Now playing: Эй, ухнем!

This summer I would like to finish a couple of projects, or at least to bring them to some level where I can leave them alone. С глаз долой – из сердца вон, в общем. See what I can do with the others.

IT

  1. Reasons for living
    1. I don’t think that the website as envisioned at the beginning would add value; keep it as random images/text pairings and nothing more
    2. Cleaner code, cleaner system for quotes (still textfile-based, but maybe with tags; or at least two textfiles, sfw-positive and nsfw-random?)
    3. Review the quotes and images
    4. Credit the persons who wrote the glitch scripts I use in the glitch version for images and text.
    5. Find as many sources for the quotes and the images
    6. Use-case: тупо залипать, Господи.
    7. Add there the current “take me somewhere interesting” thing from sparksara.net
    8. All this before the end of the summer
  2. Gutena.men
    1. Get back the domain
    2. Use as many scripts from SS as possible
    3. Generate names using various methods
    4. Check domains
    5. Not a priority
  3. Mirrorboard ☑ Here: https://www.pchr8.net/blog/2017/07/27/updated-left-hand-dvorak-mirroboard-keyboard-layout-now-pictures/
    1. Fix []s ☑
    2. Add arrow keys
      1. Or add a right-hand version where there are more keys available to the right

Borderline IT + Soft sciences

  1. Sparksara
    1. I still would like to make a creativity and divergent thinking tools website out of it
    2. Implement basic tools to help me learn some front-end scripting
      1. Research creativity
      2. Design that stimulates creativity (colors, sounds, combinations, …)
      3. Find existing methods, formalize them, and implement them
        1. Linking to the literature and studies supporting it all
        2. Be mindful of copyright?
        3. Tools like these, or like these.
        4. Examples of what exists:
          1. This
      4. Link to relevant resources and get links from relevant resources
    3. Think really well about the structure
    4. Not-so-basic tools and auth for possible monetization sometime later
    5. Have a niche blog about what I learn to learn to write and learn to make niche websites with ads.
    6. Before the end of the summer at least make a review of existing literature and a sketch of what exactly will make sense to implement
  2. WriteLikeLennon
    1. Would make sense only in VK as experiment
    2. Not too interesting technically and done before
    3. Kill it prolly?
  3. Gesturehand
    1. I can imagine it as a developed standard? Or a specification. Think RSS 1.0. Used as a semi-common language for gestures in many different contexts. Like there are certain expectations
    2. Think about ideating / writing a generalized system
    3. Probably the thing I’ll me concentrating on the most, and the one needing the most work
    4. Excuse to learn AI and ML?
    5. Try to at least get a shorthand system out of it.
  4. My shorthand system
    1. Create a name for it
    2. A small writeup on how it works and basics
    3. Intersections with Ithkuil
    4. Again have it as a version.
    5. It’s own /project page on pchr8.net
    6. All before the end of the summer

Soft sciences

  1. Pentachronological.
    1. I really have no idea.
    2. I could frame it as excuse to learn CSS3/frontent, to use my medium as much as possible, to express my creativity, whatever.
    3. Before the end of the summer see if I want to keep it up, if yes — definitely think about a plot and at least a direction.

Meta

Don’t forget all the many small ideas I get.

And when thinking what to do exactly, think more along the lines of “is it interesting personally for me” and “what is the potential for learning” more than “does it have an audience” and “will it earn money”?

And lastly, don’t work on too much at the same time. Priorities atm are Gesturehand and Sparksara.

Also think about that colored font for small screens.


Если ты сядешь, бабушка тебе Гешихте расскажет!

// нашел у себя в черновиках, написано около месяца тому.

В автобусе, потихоньку приближаемся к немецко-польской границе. Делаю все, чтоб писать диплом. Тошнит ужасно. Интернет советует, что если тошнит, то нельзя читать. Ха.

Очень радует мальчик, который сидит за мной. Лет 6. Моя полная копия в этом возрасте. Очаровательнейший немецко-русский суржик, у него и родителей, бабушки. Она пытается его развлекать, рисует картиночки, потом все угадывают, что это такое.

Это так классно, Господи.

— Будешь Айер?

У мамы явно муж прям немецкий немец, часто ему звонит, спрашивает, начал ли он уже о ней скучать.

Около-эмиграция это серьезно самый простой способ РЕЗКО сделать себе жизнь интереснее, навсегда. По моим наблюдениям и беседами с людьми, обычно это немного поломанные люди. Билингвизм и смена культур очень обогащает, но мне кажется, что гармония, которую дает относительно целостная социокультурная оболочка/матрица, тоже невероятно важна. Не буду излишне сильно уходить в эволюционную психологию и все такое, но излишне много путешествовать и сталкиваться с разными культурами человечество стало относительно недавно (шестое столетие до нашей эры?). Я могу себе представить что четкое ощущение ingroups/outgroups и принадлежания-чему-то-там нам немного более важны, чем плюшки, которые дает обрывание корней и сталкивания с совершенно другими реалиями.

НО это не относится к путешествиям! Как мы помним,

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” (Twain)

Формула для счастья и успеха по жизни, в моем мире, это были бы периодические путешествия на пару месяцев-полгода, с целью максимум понаблюдать/понять, но в то же время с четким осознанием, что дом у тебя где-то есть, и что тебе есть, куда возвращаться


Vim, empty and blank lines, executing commands on regexes, ^M

It’s been quite a while since I wrote something in the Bits and Pieces category. I’m forgetting that the goal of this blog was partly documenting my own knowledge for my own use.Definitely need to hide this category from the front page and use it often. Or even better, make it a category on the wiki.

That said:

Vim digraphs

^M is how vim shows the 0xD character, which in Windows is a newline character. A more complete list of such characters is here: http://vimdoc.sourceforge.net/htmldoc/digraph.html#digraph-table

One way to insert such characters would be: ^M is entered by holding down Ctrl and typing v followed by m, and then releasing Ctrl. 1https://stackoverflow.com/a/5843561/3597501

Interestingly enough, the keys above are represented via the tag, which apparently is a thing:2 https://developer.mozilla.org/ru/docs/Web/HTML/Element/kbd

The HTML <kbd> element represents user input and produces an inline element displayed in the browser’s default monospace font.

Vim removing empty lines & executing a command on lines matching a regex

:g/^$/d

:g will execute a command on lines which match a regex. The regex is ‘blank line’ and the command is :d (delete) 3 https://stackoverflow.com/questions/706076/vim-delete-blank-lines

Also interesting is the distinction between blank lines and empty lines. They could be defined as just '\n' and as a line with various spaces, but on visible content.

A translation of "Переведіть мене через майдан"/"Переведи меня через майдан"

Please, would you help me crossing the Maidan?

(the last wish of the old kobzar1)

“Please, would you help me crossing the Maidan3
To the far side, there is a field,  I reckon
The bees hum quietly, a little piece of heaven
Please, would you help me crossing the Maidan

Please, would you help me crossing the Maidan
Where there’s laughter, fighting, feasts and food on shelves 2
Where no one hears, neither me nor themselves
Please, would you help me crossing the Maidan

Please, would you help me crossing the Maidan
There cries a woman; in the past we were together 4
Now I’ll walk past, won’t even recognize her
Please, would you help me crossing the Maidan

Please, would you help me crossing the Maidan
With pain, regrets and love, still not forgotten
Here I’ve been brave, and here I have been rotten 5
Please, would you help me crossing the Maidan

Please, would you help me crossing the Maidan
The drunken clouds, they seem to touch my arm 6
Now it’s my son who sings on the Maidan
Please, would you help me crossing the Maidan 7

Please, help…” The Maidan took him in
and led him by the hand,  and he kept walking
As he fell dead, right in the Maidan center
Not knowing there was no field anymore

Da chto vy /voobsche/ znajete pro metamodernism?

Laaaadies and gentlemen,

дамы и господа

http://reasonsforli.win/

Someday this may become something useful. It actually started as something useful. Like a website where you go and find positivity and stuff

I’m surprised that I’m surprised that given my current state it descended into post-meta-modernistic madness pretty fast

Anyway, it’s random images from L.’s “saved images” and random quotes from my quotes file (a bit sanitized, I admit).

Ты не доживешь до тридцати

Oh, and as a bonus to the readers of this blog, here’s the old design, with the pictures and text absolutely separated.

Залипаю уже минут 20

Enjoy?

O, да, если уже началась такая пьянка,

http://sparksara.net

Тупо тырит ссылки с моей вики, у которых оценка >=6, рендомно выводит.

EDIT 1: а еще можно вот так: http://reasonsforli.win/glitch.php

Glitch + фразочки из исходника файлика, без фильтра на счет “позитивности”/”оптимистичности”/”интересности”.
