Machine Learning, Game Design and Headaches

Machine Learning, Game Design and Headaches

Oh man I need to get this posting schedule down better, I really have been slacking off.  I guess I only have so much brainpower to go around.  I was going to say “bandwidth” instead of “brainpower” but that’s one of those corporate buzzwords I hate.  Anyway the title of this post basically explains why there have been so many long gaps between posts.  Here is a bit on a few things I’ve been struggling through lately.

Where I’ve Been

Where I’ve Been

Went up North to one of my favorite places for a bit of rest and relaxation.  The Fall weather made the normally calm waters a little too crazy for swimming (well that and the cold).  It was a good trip and felt nice to shut down for a bit.  Not much else to say other than I’m looking forward to sleeping in my own bed tonight.  Hoping to have a little more of an update regarding the game and other things early next week.  Until then check out this video (which is also a test of Google cloud storage as I’m starting to dabble in the Google cloud computing area to mess around with machine learning etc).

Here is the version hosted locally:

On Appealing to the Lowest Common Denominator

I know this is not a new phenomenon, I know it is actually one of the core pillars of democracy and capitalism but I think it’s a real problem that we all need to be aware of.  It’s a problem because sometimes the lowest common denominator is not the best option.

On Starting Over

On Starting Over

One of the hardest things to do is to start over, yet it’s something I think everyone wishes they could do at some point or another.  To start over with a clean slate, turn back the clock and try again, only this time with the knowledge gained from failures and bad choices.

Changed Hosts

Changed Hosts

This will be a short post, partly because it’s to test that everything is still working and partly because I’ve spent too much time on this already.  For anyone that might have had issues viewing my site today I apologize, I was in the process of migrating to a new VPS host.  I left Digital Ocean and moved to Vultr mainly due to cost.  Digital Ocean has been a great service and they were reliable with a lot of added features that might have come in handy but which I don’t really see myself using.  Vultr is newer to the game but I have been impressed with them through the small offsite lab I’ve been running so I decided to migrate and save myself close to ten bucks a month.

I don’t want to bore you with the details of my hosting and other stuff.  If you encounter any weirdness on the site in the next few days please let me know, I anticipate I’ll be ironing out bugs for a while yet.  If anyone out there is looking for an affordable VPS take a minute to check out Vultr, I’m pretty happy with them so far.
