My daily schedule of herding my dog and little brother around was starting to get tedious and unrelenting, I was becoming frustrated and irritable, so I prepared a bath as cold as it would go, and jumped in while listening to ancient Viking music! I’ve either finally lost it, or finally found it. Either way it was EPIC!!! Turned my day around.

That would turn anyone's day around because it could only get better from there.  :2funny:

Could you train your dog and your little brother to look after each other?

I should. We could all use some kind of physical activity. Maybe I'll get some durable inflatable dogeballs  or something like that so they can tire each other out in the backyard, then there can be peace and quiet for the latter half of the day.   O0

I just finished (again) formalizing what I want to do. I plan to fuse Logos and Esperas under a single, indivisible new project called expression logic.

After more than a year, I have some modifications to the old Logos metalanguage, and have some new insights on what the original Esperas parser could really do. Implementation should be a form of extended Boolean satisfiability solver, drawing a parallel to SMT solvers.
There exist some rules interwoven within this world. As much as it is a blessing, so much it is a curse.

I've started to eat healthy and will stay like this now. And am walking in my kitchen half the day on my new laptop, drinking water more. I always have got 8+ hours sleep.

I had to return a few laptops because they sucked and weren't explained well on their websites. To get one that worked well and importantly looked good (was the hardest part, the key tactfulness, the matte, IPS, colors, texture) costed me 746USD. I just couldn't handle working on poop/a potato.

https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/thinkbook-series/Lenovo-ThinkBook-15-IML/p/XXTBXTM8001

The keyboard looks light but for my lighting it looks dark metal in day and even night lighting and is really really fine. Perfect for now. 5 years anyway and the keys probably wear out did you know!? My old 14 inch Lenovo was shot on bottom row, and was annoyingly glossy and small-screened and malfunctioning.

My mom got one too, hers blew from 2007 or 2009 it was.

My old 14 inch from 2013 is still thinner screened and base lol and is touch unlike this one, and has a whopping 3200 resolution LOL.

That's really great news and I hope these changes turn into lifelong habits. Keep it up and your life will get better in all sorts of ways that you can't imagine now.

Lenovo is always a good choice because they are built to last and they are easy to repair. The only model that can beat them is a MacBook Pro. Mine has seen sixteen hours of use every day for five years and traveled all over the world. It is still as good as new and showing no sign of wear at all.

Note I did watch many reviews, still couldn't pin which, and so some returns happened, about 5, included is my mom's this year. They shouldn't sell such poopy cheap-end ones, really, my mom had tried the gold colored almond lenovo and erm ya lol... and my first thinkbook this month was bent screen on arrival lol and i was ultra careful as could be. The other first lenovo for me had am old light-grey cheap-looking plastic on surface and was impossible to understand how they chose this as a design. My mom tried a dell also and didn't realize it was clunky sized. And a Asus but had the TN type screen which is almost unusable. My advice, don't go cheap, it's mean. But meaner is the not knowing how the keys etc will feel with no complete review or how model to get the answer from!

I've been making a simple OCR program this week to allow my virtual assistant to read text on my screen visually. The ways to get at text in other programs programmatically are restricted, and I wasn't about to install an 80Mb Tesseract neural network OCR program just to enhance my 2Mb program with a minor skill. I tried other OCR programs, but they were inaccurate for short snippets of text, and changed their results depending on how much space was above the letters(!). Anyway, so far so good, I'm using feature detection rather than try to match pixels.
