19 March 2008

I've been meaning to start this up. The fantasy writer Lawrence Watt-Evans posts regular (daily) progress reports for works in progress. It is a way of tracking goal progress, which motivates some. Others, experts in dissertation writing, have noted that making public ones progress goals can also help motivate forward progress (and if I was a good Academic, I'd have a cite for that). So, while I modify LWE's format

Comments: I've finished creating non-weighted features for my dataset. I needed to use a batch process to update the database, something I should probably do automatically. Also learned about enabling user web pages on a Red Hat box.

Tomorrow: Minimum, I need to add the weighted features and weighted average-features that include all runs. Research RedHat upgrade procedures.
