My most active project is ERDialog, a Web Framework in
Erlang. An older project is Small Linux. In 1998 it was
the most active version of Linux for x86 boxes with
less than 5 meg of ram. It has become a project to
support people, schools and areas with older PC
equipment to use Linux.

Working on getting Yaws with Erlang working on my Nook Tablet android device.

Installed erlang R14B from

install android SDK on my ubuntu netbook.

adb push /usr/src/yaws-1.91/lib/src /data/data/org.burbas.erlang/arm_erlang_R14B_rel/lib/yaws-1.91/src

OK, well that was more than 1/2 hour. More like 4 hours. But the application has a beta release. I need to work alot more on the help files and translated po files. But an early release version of my Shopping List program has been done.

Since I don't have to be back at school until January 3rd, it is time to write some code. I want to write a "Bachelor shopping list." This program is for people who discover food packages they like at a market. Then they could record what it is and where they got it and when it is a good choice.

For example I bought something called Chicken Minestrone from Bertolli. It is frozen from Trader Joe market. I did not know until after I tried it, if I would like it. After I did, I want to remember it. So a program that can hold the camera phone picture of the package and info about where I got it would be ideal.

I keep planning to go to a conference or computer expo and demonstrate writing a full application using Erdialog in under 30 minutes. But I am afraid if I tried, the Hubris Gremlin would sabotage it. OK, I will start coding now!

Working on new language production software for talk for: Worldcomp 2011

Using metaphor of a spreadsheet metaphor [3]. The active matrix can be equated to a column in a spreadsheet while future potential matrices can be seen as additional columns. Each component that is part of the communication can be represented as a cell in the column. The active matrix is updated in response to a match between input with potential matrices.

The software system is broken down into modules to handle aspects of the task. Mod- ules will process the submitted cues and send out requests for matches. Each possible match will be returned by a module and kept in a buffer until the stopclock tics down. Better matches will continue to be sent to the buffer until the timer runs down. Once the timer runs down, a kill message will be sent to all remaining modules to stop the searching. Each possible match that reaches the buffer will be compared by quality with the previous match of this series. The better match will be retained while the other will be discarded. After the timer runs out the successful match will be moved to the top of the queue for subsequent searches.

A psuedocode version is:

process input from user interface (1)
begin timer stopwatch based on active column value (2)
perform search on 1st column in queue (3)
until at least one element matches
continue search for additional matches
return success if at least one match occurred
repeat search on succeeding columns until out (4)
of columns or timer runs down
When timer runs out (5)
if at least one successful column was returned, make it active
if no successful column returned, do not change active
if active was changed return sentence (6)
prepare to process new input (1)

Added process list viewing for ERDialog and Erlang statement entry page.

Need to make some progress on the poster topic of language production by co-operating modules. Have less than 1 month!
