2017 Update

August 4th, 2017 No comments

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven’t posted in a long time. There isn’t really anything new to talk about, so I’ll just share a summary of what’s been going on.

My health is still 24/7/365 bad. The past two months, for whatever reason, have been particularly challenging. I’m lucky if I can handle going out of the house for a bit. There are many days where I am basically stuck in bed. The symptoms are the same as listed in the Earth Axis Syndrome article.

I looked into Lyme disease again (using the Western Blot test this time), but the results were again negative. The current theory is still Utricular Dysfunction, but there is no good way to prove it.

I have been seeing a psychologist for cognitive behavioral therapy to help deal with all the anxiety that comes from these symptoms. I also take anti-anxiety medications. Anxiety is a secondary symptoms though. As far as balance therapy or meds go, nothing I’ve tried has helped. I try to go out each day as a form of physical therapy to push my balance system.

I need to file for disability. It’s been a long time coming. The application process itself is overwhelming. They want to know every doctor, test, test result, treatment, and treatment result. I have 10 years of history of seeing so many doctors, that getting all the data together is like writing a book. In the end, I expect it will be a difficult challenge to get recognized as disabled without a diagnosis that could more easily explain what is wrong with me.

I appreciate the emails I’ve received from others having similar symptoms. This gives us a chance to exchange information and encourage each other. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or information related to these symptoms. It may take me a few days to reply, depending on my health.

You can also contact me if you would like to talk about MangAI. My health doesn’t let me program these days, but I can answer questions related to digital manga processing and do simple things such as adding new device profiles to MangAI’s built-in library.

Best wishes to everyone!

Happy 2015!

I hope you all enjoyed your winter holidays.

MangAI update is still in progress. I know it’s been a long time. Using the data from MPM/MSM analysis to create more intelligent epub table-of-contents is taking longer than expected. I’m having to change around the way epubs are created. Fortunately the really hard AI work for this update is already done.

Move completed

October 1st, 2014 No comments

I’ve completed the transfer to a new server. The move was kinda tricky so there may be some bugs. Please contact me if you encounter any problems.

Changing servers

September 30th, 2014 No comments

This site will be moving to another server in the next week or so. There may be some downtime during the transition. Sorry in advance for any inconvenience.

Please note that MangAI full license users will not be affected by downtime since full licenses only require activation once per program version. MangAI trial licenses, on the other hand, will not work during downtime as they require constant authentication with the licensing server.

Back to programming

September 23rd, 2014 No comments

It’s been quiet the past few months since I was busy with a side project.

Currently at work on MangAI MSM improvements. I’m interested in improving MSM string chapter detection. For reference, string chapters don’t use the typical chapter numbering scheme, and instead will be something like chapter “z”. In many cases, this is just another way some scanlators specify omake/extra chapters.

My health has been worse the past few weeks so programming is progressing very slowly. Please email me if you have any feature requests or bugs to report.
