Crash, bust, and rebuild

The software that I have been using to build my web site came up against another serious limitation. The “resource management” module crashes when it gets too many files, which makes it no longer useful.

This has prompted me to start over with a fourth version. I’m going to leave the old one up on the web as a demonstration, while my active one is being kept in text format’ I’m using Scrivener and not trying publish it, among other reasons because it is build for large projects. Although I don’t have the same ability to use hyperlinks, the creation and maintenance of those links was a major time sink. Since I have the old version still available, I can transfer material as needed. so it isn’t lost.

This will allow me a flatter form, so I can work on things like lists of schools and corporations, literary works, and more biographies, and it’s not quite so concentrated on history.

I can also keep track of sizes and progress. I now have over 40,000 works of text in just under two weeks of work. I would be doing well to write 50,000 words of fiction in a month, so I can measure my production.

I still have an interest in beginning history at the beginning, and I’m dabbling in historical fiction. From my previous work, I already have an outline of early prehistory developed that I can use and adapt.

Like a mountain peak

I have recently been concentrating on getting summaries of current events. I have now succeeded in outlining major events for September, with events for Egypt, India and Pakistan, Japan and China, and Indonesia. This process feels like the peak of a mountain, rising up out of the water. As it rises, more and more land becomes visible. There has been a lot of support work going on in 2019 and the third quarter 2019 to make this possible. Although the United States ought to be more prominent, it takes substantial work with less populous nations, and with cities of the world. to separate and bring it out.

And So It Begins

In current and recent events, I have the glimmerings of beginning for India in May of this year. There isn’t much detail, yet, but details for India in weeks of June is present. There is more to come as I work further through weeks of July and August.

Filling gaps

The latest pass of analysis and connection is through January. In order to work with the near future, I still need to sort out events and link subdivisions of the near future to the various weeks. The United States, and Western Civilization, are now connected to all weeks of 2019 so that at least a preliminary analysis and categorization of events can be considered. Religion is also connected.

Building Bridges

I got the last few weeks reviewed. I’m making progress on sorting out events of the near future, but I stil have a ways to go. I now have events of about six weeks for India and four for China, and two for Pakistan. My experience in getting this far at earlier attempts tells me that I need more than this to be able to successfully analyze nations. I also have a way to go yet on getting the Middle East, which in many ways is central in the world. I am getting closer to being able to analyze religion and government, but I’m not there yet.

The next pass involves going back to October of last year. This has resulted in the near future having continuous connection to weeks of 2019. For Sociology in general, I now have continuous connections to weeks of 2019 and 2019. Peoples of the world and institutions are not yet so well connected. As I progress through weeks and get events more sorted. I expect to have improved organization of major events.

More integration

I spent most of the past week working forward through the weeks of 2019, in hopes of making more connections to recent weeks. So far, I have good connections to the near future and middle future. I will need to go into deeper analysis of the various weeks to generate more contents. For nations, I have about 6 week’s worth of events for India, and about 4 weeks work for China. The current events in Hong Kong began about 3 months ago, so it will take a little while longer to develop the background. I am starting to separate out events of the Middle East, which occupy a good share of the week-by-week outline of events. I am also making progress with the analysis of religion, and starting to go deeper into government. Since most of the events in Wikipedia’s current events chronicle deal with government, there is a large body of work to be analyzed. Still pushing forward.

Getting Integrated

Today is my day for integrating events of the previous week. I’m not quite done with this, but progress is visible. Notably, unrest in the Jammu and Kashmir state of India seems to have been intensifying and conflict between Mainland China and Hong Kong has also been intensifying. Events in the weeks of April and May are slowly starting to be better sorted.

Back to inching

I’m back to inching along in connecting the Knowledge Base. I have begun pages for atomic and subatomic physics, Elements of culture are being connected to magnetism, and elements of anthropology are being connected to optics. Finer divisions of anthropology will be connected to mechanics as I proceed.

I’ve reached a significant milestone in personal decluttering…my personal paperwork is now cleared of most of the junk, sorted, filed, and up-to-date. Other stages of decluttering and cleanup may now proceed.

Organizing

Just checking in for now. For the past week, I have been taking care of some physically and emotionally demanding personal business. I am still making progress with the STEP program, although it has taken longer and been more difficult than I had anticipated. For the past couple of weeks, the organizing of my personal routines, projects, and living space has taken priority over the knowledge base, or programming related to it. I should be back before long.

Projects

For a personal project, I’ve recently invested in the STEP Mastery Program, from https://learndobecome/com. I’m tired of living a life of chaos surrounded by piles of debris from incomplete projects, so I’m spending a lot of time organizing my time, projects, and stuff. There’s a lot of sorting and throwing away going on; the most urgent batch may continue for another week or so. I’m also enrolled in several free courses from Udacity; these include version control using Git; HTML and CSS; Android (programming) Basics, and also a Java programming course from Udemy. I’ve decided that it’s time to upgrade and update the Sapience Web site: I’m not quite sure exactly how I’m going to do that, but I intend it to be more graphic and more interactive. I also intend to develop a smart phone app, or maybe a suite of them, using Android and IOS. The working title is “Sapience Learning Laboratory”.

I’m continuing with the development and linking of pages of the Sapience Knowledge Base and I have almost a year’s worth of work I haven’t yet published and posted to the the web. I’ve decided to shift the focus to the lower end, concentrating on science and beginning with physics, mechanics, and particle mechanics. Most of that is going to be reserved for a future update.

That should keep me busy and out of trouble, or perhaps in it.
