Happy Thursday

We continue to shelter-in-place in San Francisco as we watch the pandemic unfold. It’s been weeks (2, maybe 3?) since we started to live the social distancing life.

I’ve been hanging out in the Haskell chat rooms. There isn’t much activity there but people occasionally drop in and ask interesting questions. One person wanted to know if they could have a local copy of the Hackage server so they could work without internet access. It sounds like it’s possible but I haven’t heard back on the results yet: https://www.fpcomplete.com/blog/2015/03/hackage-mirror.

Lumaturo has been running for a few days now and I’m still excited about going through my webpages’ reports. Something about getting a perfect score and making all the metrics turn from “red” to “green” is oddly addictive. At the very least, Google Lighthouse made me aware of using HTTP/2 on my servers.

I’m still working on adding gift and question metadata to Suprizi. Once the gift suggestions and questions make a bit more sense I’ll start looking into using machine learning to enhance the experience.

Organizing and adding to the Tricky Wiki continues.

In family news, Dad had a birthday recently and my cousin had a baby! I’ll have to update the family wiki 🙂

Keep moving, stay sane 🙂

Happy Saturday

Hello again, it’s been a minute.

San Francisco continues to be a quiet place during the pandemic. Even those of us that prefer to stay indoors are becoming antsy.

I’ve been learning and practicing Esperanto, Haskell, Music Theory. It’s progressing and I have hope (Ĝi progresas kaj mi havas esperon).

A new version of the the v.systems rewards library is out. It’s starting to look pretty good! Github: https://github.com/belovachap/pyvsystems_rewards, PyPi: https://pypi.org/project/pyvsystems-rewards/.

Work continues on https://www.suprizi.com and https://www.tricky.wiki.

Have fun. Do good work.

Happy Wednesday

Wednesday will probably look a lot like Tuesday. San Francisco is mostly socially distancing; some people are not changing their activities.

I put an initial prototype of a “gift guessing game” on the web: https://www.suprizi.com/. Needs polish and code to do something more clever than randomly present questions and gift ideas… will come back to it.

I’m also working on more detailed reports for Peercoin’s v.systems supernode. The reporting programs are gathering in: https://github.com/belovachap/pyvsystems_reports and should help me write better tests in the rewards library: https://github.com/belovachap/pyvsystems_rewards.
