Guess an update is in order!

Been continuing my work on getting a 'trade secrets we deserve' ready. :lol: Can't say its the most thrill filled experience ever but there is some satisfaction to seeing things come together. I question the use of such a thing due to emulators being used and almost all of the techniques discussed being redundant. But meh. I thought it was cool :lol: Some of the questions that it raised are pretty interesting though.

So to stave off the boredom of capturing screen shots, testing pdf layouts I have been watching a bunch of TV series...

Unrelated tv series wibble..
SpoilerShow
Mindhunters - I was a bit skeptical of this at first as generally tv shows that get great reviews from plebs and main stream media outlets tend to suck. But in this case it was not the case. I thought it was a good first series. I just hope they don't screw it up like with Hannibal season 3 syndrome. I thought the writing was proficient, but the stand out performance is the actor playing Edmund Kemper. Rarely do you get a tv actor that does such a good job - when you compare his performance to the actual guys interviews its uncanny. The writing is good as you have a nice balance where the details are simplified enough for a general audience without it becoming annoying or unbelievable.

Narcos - Saw the second season, I think the character acting in this is good. Seems to be a continuation of good writing from the first series. One thing though this is not some deep thinking series on narco politics or the logistics of operating in a corrupt society with weak rule of law. Its more something you watch for its escapism. What I like is while its simplistic and escapist its not boring or formulaic, it also stays within the realms of belivability. Enjoyed the first series more though.

The Blacklist - A mystery/action series for windowlickers. This has to have some of the worst writing & acting for a series I have had the misfortune of watching. I don't understand how it gets such good reviews when the pilot has so many show stopping unbelievable plot holes. For me its important for a series to be believable, when a series breaks that I get annoyed and loose interest. I just can't get my head round how this obviously written by comity hack job of a script ever got commissioned. And the preachy, hokey SJW gender politics nonsense is so obvious its painful. "lets subvert every gender trope we can in the first episode... yay diversity." Its like a team of college students in a liberal arts program decided to write a TV series and it got put into production with no oversight.
What else am I working on - Well actually I have a productivity application I need to help plan my workouts. Figured I might as well do it on the spectrum as it doesn't need to be more than 8-bits to do a few simple calculations :lol:

Feasibility study:

I need an application to store my workout data, also it needs to track my progress and make predictions on future performance.

Requirements:

It needs to:
  • store workout data on disk
    retrieve data from the disk
    use text to show information
    have sound prompts for input
    take input from keyboard in kg or lbs.
    make a prediction about future performance.
    plan future workouts.
Result of study:

I determine that Basic is fine for the application as it does not require graphics or fast response times to input. This has all the hallmarks of a classic Basic application. This will be for the +3.

Future enhancements: Assembly version, graphics screens, have a diet tracker/meal planner.

Data:

So for Barbell squat the following data is used as like a benchmark for progress, once a person reaches a level the number will show up green instead of red.

Code: Select all

MALE SQUAT KG:

BW: UN: NO: IN: AD: EL: 

52	35.0	65.0	80.0	107.5	145.0
56	37.5	70.0	87.5	117.5	157.5
60	40.0	77.5	92.5	127.5	167.5
67	45.0	85.0	105.0	142.5	185.0
75	50.0	92.5	112.5	155.0	202.5
82	55.0	100.0	122.5	167.5	217.5
90	57.5	105.0	130.0	177.5	230.0
100	60.0	110.0	135.0	185.0	240.0
110	62.5	115.0	140.0	192.5	250.0
125	65.0	117.5	145.0	197.5	257.5
145	67.5	122.5	147.5	202.5	262.5
145+	70.0	125.0	150.0	207.5	270.0

FEMALE SQUAT KG:

BW: UN: NO: IN: AD: EL: 

44	20.0	37.5	45.0	60.0	75.0
48	22.5	40.0	47.5	65.0	80.0
52	25.0	45.0	52.5	67.5	87.5
56	25.0	47.5	55.0	72.5	90.0
60	27.5	50.0	60.0	77.5	95.0
67	30.0	55.0	62.5	85.0	105.0
75	32.5	57.5	67.5	90.0	115.0
82	35.0	62.5	75.0	97.5	122.5
90	37.5	67.5	80.0	105.0	132.5
90+	40.0	72.5	85.0	110.0	137.5

This data will get stored as an array, its then a matter of compairing each element of the array against the value given by the user in their workout.

A print function just loops through runs a comparison and if an If condition is met either GREEN or RED is selected for ink. Simple right. :lol:

UN = untrained
NO = Novice
IN = Intermediate
AD = Advanced
EL = Elite

For the moment the program will just handle Squats, later will add Overhead barbell, Deadlift and bench.

TR DOS is pretty slick with saving arrays, will make full use of this later.

Other than that its just a simple subroutine for input - this input then is used to populate an array, make a pretty screen with a bunch of conditional statements determining what advice is printed/not printed.

User is then prompted if they want to save the data.. if yes then its written to disk. if no then nothing is saved.

I'm probably being a duffer but what exactly are these stats? Take the first example, Male squat, BW = Body weight(?), Untrained is 35.0 "what"?

Run around with a +3, powerpack and a car battery strapped to you like a fitbit you'll see those stats improve in no time.

We've come a long way from a chess game :-p

I think you'll get a kick out of this. You won't be able to run it (although you could on ZEsarUX) but you can read the BASIC.

Matt Davies did a game jam last weekend, and wrote a decent game with sprites and 256 colour graphics, entirely in NextBASIC at 14Mhz.

The orb.bas file in the download is tokenized, so here is a plain text version too.

The data is taken from a data set of males and females that were tested for strength in an exercise. In this case it was barbell squat. It is in Kilos.

For example, an untrained individual should be able to walk up to any barbell and perform the squat with the numbers in the UNtrained column for one repetition. From this point till the Novice stage you have the very bottom of the sample to the 20% mark samples, the NOvice category is the 20%-49% of the samples taken. So you can say if you can lift the amount in the Novice column you are going to be better than 20% of the sample set. But still not good enough for an Intermediate rating - this would indicate you are stronger than 50% of the samples taken. But not more than 75% that would put you in the advanced section. Stronger than 95% puts you at the elite level.

Depending on where you stand, it determines what programs should be recommended to the user. It's crude but its is what it is.

The prediction part is simple, its just a random function, you look at the amount already lifted in the previous session and <10 negative progress, <50 no change >50 < 90 positive progress.

Chess project is on the back burner till i get my new machine. :lol: Next few weeks I should be getting that sorted then I can get back to crapchess. I just didn't want to sit on my arse doing nothing :lol:

The previous few days have been mostly this...



instead of an American/Brit voice though imagine lots of the bad guys from Team America 'EEE DIRKA DIRKA Text to Speech.. DIRKA DIRKA Ubuntu NIII DIRKA DIRKA Subscrible! My Goat needs subs!'



:lol: What is the deal with Youtube tutorials and people that can barely speak English? Why not just do the tutorial in your own language and then someone might understand what is being said? :lol: It's like they think the Drones are going to avoid their compound if they speak what they think is English on the net...

I just don't get the thought process - It would be like me deciding to do a whole youtube series in Arabic. :lol:

I then find a tutorial .. no sounds of drones in the background or a camel being abused, I get my hopes up.. Oh no its a squeaker using notepad. :x

This would be somewhat easier if when I go to RTFM I find the libraries are basically unmaintained, have a dev team operating a forum that requires a social media page to join and submit a question... I read some of the posts its a damn Hugbox. People begging for help and these soy-boys acting like they did the world a favor by uploading a broken, largely undocumented library to the world. :lol:

Image

open source software is really only free if you consider your own time to be worthless. :lol:

As another confusing point - what happened to tech guys? It seems to be a sea of soy boys developing these applications and tools? Where did all the hetrosexual guys go?

Image

Lol what is the deal with the whole glasses, open mouth, low testosterone thing come in? I am so out of touch with what is going on. Is this normal now?

This was the tutorial I found...



Its like a guy with no idea what he was doing, decided to record a series after doing way to many uppers. :lol:

I must be missing something, because this guy has just taken information that was on the library page... and made a youtube video adding no value.

:lol:

Thing is all of the tutorials are like this.

I then find out that a security update to chrome essentially breaks the functionality of the whole library anyway. So this was all a huge time sink. :lol:

For me this sums up open source. :lol: Because Linux desktop is totally ready for prime time. :lol:

So now ya'll know why development on the actual fun stuff (the spectrum project) has been slow.
