if you don't have proper fonts installed you won't see what this picture shows: the output of the echo command with unicode symbols as input. If you are blind basically the unicode are symbols that you could feel as shapes. If you have a 'font box', which would be like that divice with all the pins in it that you can place your hand inside, and the shape of your hand will appear on the surface. If such a thing locked, it would then let a blind person feel it and they would feel the shape. such a device that does that for font shapes would greatly aid the blind. It would be a 'kind of' high resolution new-braille. Call it a 'sean-box' font reader.

The Message Column


Autumn 2017

Big Winds blowing

not just the huricanes.

The statues represent the children
lead to fight for a failing cause

Violence in the name of politics
is political failure

last week on Blathertatious Comentaries of the abutting forests . . .

. . . .

Know-it-all-will-tell ya goes on about how in a healthy forest the low parts are always
boggy and swampish in the wet season . . . 







What is the purpose of finding?
everyone ought to have an answer to this when they are looking.
looking?
looking for an answer?


looking for an answer?
what is the purpose of your answer?
looking? just to find?

if you don't know what you are looking for . . . 
then how do you know it when you find it?

Obvously people know. Such confusion
is merely a polemic.

It's a bit. Some people fall into it.
They get confused. They follow a 'cause'.
Later on, those who promote such a cause dump them
for rich foreigners who they bring in with great dreams
of happy future and call you a racist for noticing.

When there is enough for everyone
why do some people still try to take it all for themselves?

Poem Shards


Eulogy
I met him in the fog
  of war
 after he was already dead
 his visage in videos speaking
         dread
 and how the public is
     mislead.

  If only I could have known
       you before
      you gave up the ghost to
           haunt the crossing ferry
  off to places unknown, an
      undiscovered . . . 
     virtue.
  A new country! 
      A new type of people who
   respect the things that work that
       ferry churning 
        through the fogs and mists and 
               dank smelling out-gassings
     of these many foul rethorics spewed
         plausible
     no one knows
  who is sure?

   Which shore
     does your ferry 
  pull up to
       to let out the ghost, so
   the story goes, the one
 that gets told . . . better
    be one that people can
              hear when their kids are there
   outside the house
       at the top of the stair.

 She
     can't hear that story if he
     is but a ghost now she
     knew him he was
        her friend and
 told her how he had
       been
 destroyed, remorsed, 
  fallowed, wasted, lost 
 abandoned on the battlefield of soul
 blow up your fallacies, this war
       needs to be taken way down inside those
              dark-thought places where
      hate channels freely destroy
            the hate by sending it off to unthought
                rhyme
  unspoken
            words unkind
      unthought hate.

  We try not to think of it, what
      the plausible story can be he's
 off on that Platsburgh ferry a shroud
        of fog the mists
         and fowl outgassings must
  some how be endured one last time
        to say good bye, come back to me
       come back to me you friend now gone and lost
  never known all hopes
   of how to write this story . . . his story . . . if he had asked me . . . 
   I'd start the book:
      "He faked his death to escape . . ." 




from Unipoems
 She asked 
 " If you get across
  can you take this
       to the King of Nowhere
 and tell him,
   plead to him
  to think of her
  and the way that she needs him?
       but he won't come home
     so she goes out looking for him
 went down to The Flatiron Building
         asking anyone
    wrote a card
        mailed it home.

  I imagine her
       collapsed on a bench
        people shuffle through
     she feels the lonely loss
          why won't he come home?
     I imagine her.
 She wrote it like that
      on her card.

  But it was all for sympathy,
       just an expression of her drama
 and she felt lost because of it
       and didn't know how to proceed
         the tricks didn't work with him
      he'd gotten willful,
     run off with a different girl
   who doesn't go to church.

     Hear the steam whistle
  of an approaching ferry turning to make a smooth connect.
      Moving back
 from the railing and the ropes
       she notes the impatience of the people at the dock
     and how the other women really like to talk.
  the crowd rushes forward
  have your nickel ready
        she gets swept along
     now she is way out there
       in the ferry
 out past the jetty.

who da thought?

thought is sequential the end of it is never flood on, river of wise neglect let the bough break let the wind blow removed the baby from that cradle long ago and took him somewhere safe. Thought is over rated when it's thought for being mean to be mean being mean what you mean when you are mean when you 'mean what you say'. Memory is overrated there is joy in the person even when they don't know who you are anymore they still love you they usually don't forget that they love you usually. It was cold that day he'd driven all the way there and plodded through the snow to face the sorrow of his loved-one who didn't remember him but thought him to be someone else as thwarted. Memory is overrated when it's hard hurt of past tragedy as if it happened yesterday from the long ago. Bill Perilli, writer of all of the things on this blog. 🌜🌜🌜🌝🌛🌛🌛

Coders Edge

Plans

User has new concepts

As a user of my own idioms it becomes natural to know what works and what does not, and how to make it easier to do.

Blender, Minetest, Supertuxkart

OK, so using the minetest extensions, and getting into the world of Lua, one may design all kinds of things in a 3D 'game' environment. But the game is to learn how to use the tools. And so, I can do screen snapshots, whcih I can share here. And that will allow me to show you the stuff so you can see it but what it is is . . . what it is is (Martin Lawerance said this as his line) that I would like to show these with the format of the angle spin gauge. The Angle Spin Gauge, as you may know, is the form of html which allows for the presenation of a ring of material. But the format for the layout can be of anytype. It doesn't ahve to be angular and cylindrical. Each 'device' is 'attached' to a 'hub'. This is formed within the code. You can see it on this page. And then each of these can be tagged to a different callback that allows for some difference in how it 'refreshes' within an animation that is attached to the process through the maniupuation of the page by the Javascript and also using custom but also Jquerry extensions. And trying to keep it all html5 or whatever the most current and useful version of things is. The results are actually kind-a-nice ('kind-a-nice' is a technical term)

So what I've done is to investigate the format of the file which I saved from one of my minetest sessions. That format is very simple to understand. It also can be pared down to make it terser. It lends itself to being easily manipulated from the command line. For example using simple sed commands one can modify the files fairly easily. And so if one is even a little bit command line handy, and at a linux terminal (bash, baby!) then its a quick little tap on the keys. After you figure it out you can save your work for easy future cut and paste. Sed and awk are your friends.

But that is expert hacking. And if you are going to do real work, to automate the process you need to write some programs or some scripts. Basically it would be far easier to just pull the data into some memory managed arrays, so that they can be easily manipulated. But these could be very large regions. And so, in that case, the serial feeding of the information into a sequential read element/write element, don't care if we barf method, where we note where were are so if we do barf ('barf' means that the program did a hard fail, whatever it was, and lost it's mind and things needed to be reset. In Linux that is an easy thing to fix. Whatever,. In some other OS, historical pieces of work, the barf was a bad thing it was a very bad thing.

But not to worry, the implementation of very large arrays is handled by the virtualization and caching of these arrays. And so if you ask Linux to give you this huge thing that is rediculously large it will happy tell you that it has it and then try and simulate it all for you, oh you neophyte, as cache object. It will write and read from your physical storage. It will do a good job of it.

But it is always prudent to use memory management. And so if a 'saved' region is larger than a certain size, one needs to assume that a lot of that is 'air'. In minetest that means that it isn't there. There is no element there. It is air. Great. It is air. So those nodes don't need to be allocated. Only the nodes which actually contain something need to be allocated. What that means is that the overhead of writing the code to do this for you is worth the effort so that the entities can be much larger.

The minetest seems to break the world up into chunks of a certain size. The game has a bunch of different things it does. It maintains a flat file which contains all of the nodes of the world. That file gets larger and larger as you add to your world. The game also maintains a view for the 'player'. If you are only using the game to build things then, well, you're not really playing it in a traditional sense. But what you can do with the tools is really very nice. And clumsey as the interface is, it does sit right on top of the rock solid Irrilicht, which I've learned about in the past and which seems solid.

Minetest might seem bogged down. Or at times you might wonder why the image only partly renders. Remember that this tool is a work in progress. It has setting, like any other tool would. THere are very many configuration elements available to the 'player' of the game. And very many modifications that make the game much more awesome. I downloaded what is known as a Dreambuilder modset, and the person who provided this did a very good job of collecting very many mods and I used those.

It didn't work at first. Fortunately I'd been playing the game for a while so I had a version that worked very well. And it's easy to copy mods between different versions of the game. So I copied all the mods from a working version into the version that wasn't working (this is a deep copy, in that you need to do it recursively.). I let this copy clobber the files in the version that didn't work. The clobber meant that all version of this conformed to the version which I was running on my system. And then the dreambuilder world worked great. A lot more stuff in that world, and some very cool fauna.

So I build a lot of different things with this using the stack command copiously. And at the top of a giant building I put a big lawn. Well, I go do a bunch of stuff, and the way that the game is it has things self-spawning due to the activity of various mods. I was hoping to have some giant sequoias growing on my roof. So what did I get? There were a lot of things growing up there. I got 'poison_ivy seedlings'. Not interested. So, in order to rectify this I went in an deleated the directory that contained the poison_ivy mod. I suppose I could figure out what makes it poisonous (it harms the player) and what makes it so virulent, and take away the part that harms and make it something good (renaming it, of course) but it was easier to just delete it.

I was learning Blender for a while. I want to get back to it. In the meantime I figured I give my mind a break. But mineteset and blender, and supertuxkart, all work well together. Blender is really cool and useful and definitely more fun than first-person-shooter video games. It's a saner alternative for people who want less violence in their games.

And so, using the game as a design tool is a cool idea. As well it ought to be a simple shim to have Blender suck in the minetest region save files and produce a model using the .blend format which will give much more advanced rendering options for the regions created.

I suppose now it would be good to show some pictures?

April 15, 2016





if you don't have proper fonts installed you won't see what this picture shows: the output of the echo command with unicode symbols as input. If you are blind basically the unicode are symbols that you could feel as shapes. If you have a 'font box', which would be like that divice with all the pins in it that you can place your hand inside, and the shape of your hand will appear on the surface. If such a thing locked, it would then let a blind person feel it and they would feel the shape. such a device that does that for font shapes would greatly aid the blind. It would be a 'kind of' high resolution new-braille. Call it a 'sean-box' font reader.
