Open Letter

I wanted to address a few things to not only the public or any potential readers, but to myself. I’ve been thinking about this stuff for quite some time and it all sort of built up tonight.

Firstly, my public Discord server has 400 members. That is more than I could ever ask for and I think it is incredible that this many people have somehow found my content. I won’t get too sappy here. I just want to share my thankfulness for everyone who has ever come to support me in one way or another.

Secondly, an apology. I’ve been slacking greatly. My Discord server is a mess, my website is a mess, and I’ve honestly done nothing but distanced myself from it all. I often set myself up to take on too much and then fail to deliver, given my track record. I’m moving forward with a mindset of not revealing much so I don’t set anybody (including myself) up for disappointment. That said, I am working on two things right now, the second of which depends on the first. I won’t reveal any details on what it is, how long it will take me, and when it’ll be out. But it’ll be out. It’s been a passion of mine for years and I think it has developed into something incredible. I will shine one day.

I refuse to come up with excuses as to why I distanced myself from everything. Work school etc. You’ve heard it from other people so I won’t regurgitate what’s obvious. All I will say is that moving forward I’m going to do my best to work on something great. What will come will be for everybody

Thank you all for supporting me.

What a World

Over the last week or so, I’ve had some of the most exciting things happen to me that I think I could ever ask for.

I think what I’ve always wanted was to provide lots of people with something I have created myself, and simultaneously make myself happy while making everyone else happy, too. I’ve had a taste of this with my YTP+ project. In just a day I’ve gained about 150 followers and I’ve gained about 2,000 likes on the release post. That’s pretty damn good for something I didn’t put a lot of effort into. That being said moving forward I would really love to continue working on that program and making it, well, worthy of its following, because it’s far from it. I’ve never made something that has caught on this much. So it’s seriously a bit of a culture shock to me, I guess. I’m still trying to understand what the hell I should be doing with myself now that I’ve gained a somewhat substantial following that wasn’t centered around LittleBigPlanet. In a way, I’m glad I’ve come to terms with the idea that I can totally wipe myself away from something so easily and jump ships into something new that doesn’t leave me feeling, well, depressed.

I have lots of ideas. I have lots of plans. I have lots of things I want to try and create and do. It’s exciting. For quite some time I had my ambitions in the wrong place and I’ve now accepted that I have much more potential than I believed I had. I probably sound like I have a big ego, but I think it’s more of a confidence thing.

That being said, it’s beyond important that I don’t forget about my life. I put off a bunch of assignments and coursework that’s due this week (and some overdue by a week) so please give me some time to catch up with my important stuff before there’s any updates or new projects on the way. Just know I’m excited as hell to move forward with stuff I’ve wanted to do for years.

Thank you all.

P.S. I’m sorry about the lack of blog posts. I’ll get back to it!

Work In Progress, Part II

On a more positive note, I sent in an application for Harvard two days ago (just a few hours before the deadline). Unfortunately, by the time I submit the application, I didn’t come to the realization that I needed several other documents from my school sent to the college. Damn. Harvard’s a no-go for me. But there’s always still Stanford, and I’m pretty dedicated to getting into that, despite the fact that it will probably murder my bank account in cold blood.

Anyway, aside from all this nonsense, my computer is finally complete. I built it yesterday.

My computer, complete with USB Penguin RGB light because I live on the dark side where RGB lights inside my computer don’t exist.

This baby’s running a 3770k i7, and I clocked it up to 4.4 GHz. My graphics card came in, it’s a Sapphire RX 580 with 8GB of VRAM. I can finally play video games from a decade ago at pretty much maximum speed…

I had a bunch of issues getting the computer to work initially, and I think I enabled some bad setting in the BIOS so for a while my computer was refusing to POST and I had no idea why. Still a little bit skeptical of my computer being 100% fully functional, but we’ll see. I get pretty damn good temperatures. Idling with a Chrome window open and a Discord window, maybe Spotify runs between 30C and 40C. When running Prime95, the max temperature I saw it go up to was 90C, which is risky but that’s Prime95 being a big meanie. Realistically, I never see it go much past 75C-80C when doing hefty things. And I never stress out my computer, so I think my current overclock is working great.

In other news, we’re supposed to get snow tomorrow. 3-6 inches. I’m calling out of work because I’m pissed off at what happened today, and I’m totally using the snow as an excuse.

Ex.Ey.(p(x, y) & ~p(y, x) & ~p(f(x), y))

In no Herbrand Universe
        was there ever sorrow
        like this
I am reminded of a blocks world,
under a domain of
        infinite discourse
where inductive relationships, 
        like tears
        falter.

SKOLEMIZE ME WITH FIRE, there will be no
Conflict Resolution. 
        Reify my soul.
                This cage defines the Standard
Axiom Schemata. What can you do? See slide
154, lecture 17 -- you will find

                nothing.

Subsume all rational factors. 
        Extract all strategies. 
                Order your resolutions. 
        This model will not be eliminated.
                        when all the
        paramodulation
                is said and done
you lose your set of support

                                FORMALIZE THAT.

what heart can find solace in
        embracing
                the
empty
        clause.
