Here is a list of some technical projects that I've thrown together as hobbies over the years, as well as other technology-related resources and links that I've generated and/or collected. Call it a technology user's miscellany, if you'd like.
chaptersgenerated automatically based on a mash-up of James Joyce's Ulysses and a rotating selection of other texts. (Generated by a set of 40+ Python scripts.) Uses my Markov Sentence Generator as a back end.
poemsautomatically written by a text generator trained on existing love poetry. It uses a Python script that uses a variation on my Markov sentence generator.
storiesgenerated automatically based on H.P. Lovecraft's writings. (Currently generated by a Python script; previously generated with a
bashscript.) Currently uses my Markov Sentence Generator as a back end; previously used Jamie Zawinski's DadaDodo for this purpose.
essaysautomatically written by a text generator that's been trained on Paul Graham's essays. Generated by a Python script that uses my Markov Sentence Generator.
archive_junta.py, the Fascist Tweet-Archiving Script, a script that tracks tweets by Donald Trump the rest of the current ruling American corporatist junta, and that has the Internet Archive back them up before they're deleted.
bashscript intended to detect when Internet service goes down and to tweet angrily at the user's ISP when it comes back up.
isp_complain.shthat complains to my ISP via Twitter when my Internet service goes down.
r/XPA: An Experiment in Simple Data Aggregation, a write-up of how my partner and I auto-document our vacations on a Reddit forum by collecting traces of things we're already doing.
optimize_topics.sh, a bash script for automating multiple runs of the MALLET language toolkit.
Most of these are updated somewhere between rarely and never.
You can find me asking and answering questions on these fora:
Many of these are rather minimalist.
