Oh, I had plenty of notes -- they were all stored in a local PmWiki instance, running on IIS!
Aaaaaand my hard-drive failed while I was on leave.
IT was able to recover some files, but I need to get an installation up-and-running so I can read them, can't I?
The first time I did it, The Web Platform Installer worked like a charm.
This time, it failed - document temporarily moved?
So I followed https://www.iis.net/learn/application-frameworks/install-and-configure-php-on-iis/install-and-configure-php and it worked to get PHP running, anyway.
Now I'll have to see about PmWiki,
AND getting in-house backups of my files. 2 years of dev notes. UGH.
server-start however, the
~\.emacs.d\server folder needed to be twiddled.
THIS solved my problem - reset the ownership from
Administrators to mine own self.
Also, location of folder is at
Was throwing the following error:
Unable to open 64-bit image. Run Process from a writeable directory.
It's not the file itself, it's the auto-extracted 64-bit image opening in the Temp folder -
(I found this via
SET TEMP on the command line - without params, it provides the current setting.)
I copied the file
procexp64.exe to the main ProcessExplorer folder, and it worked like a charm when openend directly.
There's quite possibly a better solution somewhere.
This page helped me the most (August 2016); clear steps and screenshots.
Another installation guide went through the pre-requisites, and seems to have the same installation steps, but I did use the above for the final installation.
No matter which method you use, there will probably be at least 2 restarts once critical components are installed. I can't get Windows 10 to stop auto-updating and restarting whenever it wants, anyway....
I first read Scott Hanselman's post on the subject (March 2016), but it was extremely light on the installation details. He links to a 30-minute video he did on using the system, which I've yet to watch.
But the following is what I used for Node v6
curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_6.x | sudo -E bash - sudo apt-get install -y nodejs sudo apt-get install -y build-essential
Needed a couple of pre-requisites
sudo apt-get install pkg-config sudo apt-get install libcairo2-dev
I had already installed a package that used
canvas (Darius Kazemi's Reverse OCR) and so I navigated to the directory, executed
sudo npm i. I had to fake
permissions.js for the app, as well as hard-code some words that were normally obtained from Wordnik (I could have used real keys, but that's outside the scope of this test). I then ran
nodejs index.js .... and got an
out.png file. I opened it up outside of the WSL BASH - and it was what I expected!
There are other projects I want to try - but this was the first I found back using canvas.
I've been working solely with generated text for the past couple of years due to nodejs image-library issues on windows.
Looks like the WSL may solve all of my problems!
It was not as easy as the above - I've cut out all of the obviously embarrassing mistakes (and left only the non-obvious mistakes).

If you squint your eyes and look at it in the right light, text-generation can be considered AI - for certain, limited definitions of the term AI that nobody but those who can already tell the innards from the dim outline would care about.

Because the old one kept overheating and dying.
TODO: notes about new laptop (and what I did on the old one)
Could not remove all the screws from the case to check interior -- two are stuck.
USed a head monitor -- which shows all the sudden shutdown were when temps got out of control.
Could not predict what would push it over the edge, however.
So easy to brush, it kept stealing focus when I typed. Because it's so much bigger? Because I should have everything at an angle? DUNNO.
But this helped me fixe it:
Surprised nobody mentioned this in the thread. Even in Windows 7 this is available under the Mouse icon in Control panel. Windows will automatically disable the touch pad if you connect a USB mouse to the system if you configure it to. No need for a hotkey.
Click WINDOWS+R Keys at the same time. (or right click on the windows icon on the taskbar and click Run. Type main.cpl and press enter The mouse menu will come up. Click on the ClickPad Settings tab Place a check in Disable internal pointing device when external USB pointing device is attached. Click OK.
Once this is done anytime you plug a mouse in the touchpad will be disabled automatically.
For whatever reason, my work copy of Process Explorer stopped working today (or probably yesterday, after a just-before-leaving-the-office reboot) with the following error:
Unable to open 64-bit image. Run Process from a writeable directory.
Turns out the default
.exe is a 32-bit app that contains the 64-bit-app within it (source), which is then extracted to a TEMP directory.
If the TEMP directory cannot execute, app won't run.
Online searches indicate that Group Policy changes sometimes have this effect.
processexp64.exe was present in the TEMP folder, so I copied it to the main app folder -- and it worked just fine.
The solution I found for the same problem was:
And, of course, I discover that the implementation is.... sub-optimal.
But not non-existant.

I find the setup instructions to be... confusing.
But I'm getting closer.
npm i jingo
node node_modules\jingo\jingo -s > config.yaml
node node_modules\jingo\jingo -c config.yaml

If you follow the
readme.md, it has you launch the application well before setting up authentication.
IMHO, if I'm running
localonly per the instructions, I shouldn't have to authenticate. But that's just me.
If you keeeeep reading down, there is some more information on seting up authentication.
No examples, are shown, but this is what the applicable section in the default
config.yaml file looks like:
You cannot enter a password in plaintext, which is good security, I guess. But again -- if you're running locally, you still have to jump through this hoop.
In your shell, execute:
node node_modules\jingo\jingo --hash-string password
So then you can plop it in and see

For the 3rd year in a row I'm participating, although this might be the first time I've actually gotten around to writing it up?
I run Windows at home, becuase I've always worked in a Windows shop.
I don't love Windows, but it works.
Now, Python I don't generally do. I've done some Python for classes and exploring other NaNoGenMo projects.
So, by no means an expert, much less even fluent.
I was trying to get this repo to work: https://github.com/mewo2/vocab-mashup
Aaaaand, I had a hard time doing so.
First, I removed my installation of Strawberry Perl, because it had an older copy of
gcc that was causing issues.
Then I installed
mingw via Xrad:Programming/Chocolatey.
Standard installs of
gensim didn't work, and I apparently needed to get windows 64-bit binaries.
Which I snagged from www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/
They were downloaded locally, and then installed via something like the following:
pip install D:\downloads\scipy-0.16.1-cp27-none-win_amd64.whl

I downloaded the entire DVD
.iso from the torrent.
I used the Deluge client.
Mounted the iso using WinCDEmu.
Once installed, double-click on

I used all standard defaults, and --poof-- there it was.
Of course, there's an HTML browser and all of the texts are zipped.
