where have you been?
I've been slacking off in the update department, at least here. I ended up doing a bunch with my laptop since I was getting too heavily addicted to the MacBook. Ironically, that's what I 'm writing this post on, but it's really not out of choice at the moment.
Several things have happened since that juncture, and I say "juncture" out of respect to the late President George HW Bush, who passed since my last post. I considered replacing the entire operating system on the laptop, and I wrote about that, then I made a final decision and wrote that little update here. So things have pretty much been set up as the direction I am travelling in which is going to involve a whole lot of code, and perhaps these challenges are the best place in which to learn them.
I am now getting addicted to the idea of seeing just how far I can push the envelope of what my laptop can do. I am now building a need in myself to be able to achieve the collection of mass amounts of relevant data and work off of that. I need to customise all of my environment and be able to go further and do better, resolve things more quickly and build off of each level of learning as I get to them.
I need to be able to build things that are new, and it is becoming a drive.
Now I'm going to try and get some things configured.
