This is my implementation of Eliza, the affordable computer shrink. I wrote this as an exercise in Test Driven Design(TDD). I will write about my experience with TTD later. I can say that it was very positive, and that I learned a lot working through this exercise than I would have by spending the same amount of time reading about it.
To use it, you must click on the web form button. Don't type the Enter button on your keyboard; it will reload the page. I got to fix that.
Type 'Hello' to start, talk, and then type 'Bye' to end.
Yeah, I also wanted to start a political party. And an international political party for that since I am already making one. It is the the International Love Party, where people who are moved by love can join together, enhance their love for humanity and maybe even do something!
I will put a link to its blog soon. Hopefully the store will get up quickly as well.
This stormy weekend I got to make a number of nice silly goals. I built a snow maze in the driveway, I made another igloo, the biggest one that I have made, actually, and I built a sled area for the kids to go down our driveway. I used their sleds to snowboard down it. It was fun.
I did this in the last month over a weekend. We hiked for 6 hours in Great Falls, MD. We hiked over the park in the trails, and then we visited the vistor's center and saw this great little gate keeper museum there. Then we saw part of the falls. We were going to go to the Billy Goat Trail Section A, but then I saw the entry to Olmstead Island, which I haven't been to at all, and we went there first. It was great, and my daughter really loved the island.
Then we went to hike on the Billy Goat Trail Section A. We got to finish half of it since it got dark. We had to use the emergency trail exit. Then we hiked in the canal towpath in the darkness until we got to the car. It was really nice. :)
Here is the label for the Old Virginia Cilantro Tonic, which I brew yesterday. It is cilantro soda pop, from an old Virginia recipe. I only brew 1 liter. Images of the bottle with the label may come later.
Here is the cover of my first pop novel, Cult of Cow. This will be the project that I will be working on when I participate in this year's nanowrimo, national novel writing month. http://www.nanowrimo.org/
Of course I haven't written any of it since I am not supposed to do so. But I hope that you can figure out what this is about by the cover.
UPDATE: I forgot to update this one: Yes, I finished this in time. I am now an author. :)
Inspired by Darwin twittering, I got an account for Francisco I. Madero, initial leader of the Mexican Revolution of 1910. Write now I have him twittering random quotes from his book, The Presidential Succession. This is topical since the 100 anniversary of the Mexican Revolution is about to hit the next year. I got to make some changes to the script so that it will hash out certain key terms. Madero is exclusively twittering in Spanish :P
The code is below:
require 'grackle' file = IO.readlines("maderobook.txt") randomLine = rand(file.length) + 1
Another project from Isabell :)
Well, I finished a facebook application. Good start, considering the early problems. Hopefully tomorrow I can add a db and support to spam friends.
Bella did her first programming tutorial tonight! This is her work; a scratch project. I am so proud of her. Crunchy Granola Academy seeks to give a sound technology education to its students!
