2017-01-01: Monthly review

I made 2,016 miles in 2016! About 145 hours on the bike, moving and stationary.

We went to Shoreline for Christmas with Chris, Grant and Ren (and Grandot, Dina, Lew, Linda, Blythe, Garth, Joni, Laura and Laura’s son AJ). Ren played a lot of Monument Valley on my iPhone.

I downloaded the latest version of OpenCyc (4.0) and found it runs with no changes on MacOS with Java 1.7. I plan to start the tutorials, but many of the documentation links on cyc.com are broken. Some documentation is available through an old MIT course site.

At the Browns, someone mentioned “The Orphan Train”, a book based on a mid-1800’s custom of sending trains full of orphans from easter cities to the mid-west, where they were sold to farmers as laborers. This reminded me that Harry Gant’s grandfather was said to have been adopted in Iowa in that time frame. It might be interesting to see if there is any evidence he was in that “migration”.
