As I have mentioned before I have been working, albeit slowly, on finally finishing the conversion of the site from ColdFusion to C#.NET. By and by recently chatGPT has roared onto the internet with a bang, might even say a BING, and although code assist AI, with github, has been in a sort of beta state for the last several months (or even year?) I have thought that a way to revitalize my enthusiasm for working on this site is the start to mess around with it.
As such I have decided to do multiple things. One is to try to use chatGPT while I work in the C# code for this site and document the journey in so doing. Two, since programming and philosophy are some of the main focuses of the site, that I will create a series called ChatGPT And Me (initially called Chatting With ChatGPT) where I will post various chats that I have with chatGPT on a wide range of subjects. Three, I will revive the Learning a new Programming Language series with chatGPT at the helm with critiques from me.
I'm hoping this will be fun and interesting for both me and any audience there might be.

Welp. It's been over 10 years since I last posted here. 8 years since I last did any work on this site. Many things have happened.
First it was just being lazy and not having the drive to post anything while I was working on redoing the backend of the site. Then the work slowed down to a crawl and eventually to a stop. I don't know if there is a link between my lack of drive and the health issues that started to show up in 2015, but by the end of 2016 I was in the hospital fighting for my life. A few hiccups and then Covid-19 we finally reach today.
I am still Alive
The site is not dead and neither am I. The forced change of the backend host for this site has spurred me to try again to get going with this. To bring some order in the chaos where the mind dwells.
The new host has given me some issues, half of which are currently resolved. The main thing that is working right now is the coldfusion version of neThing (v0.8) has been brought back up to full working status so I can post this.
For a list of project (incomplete, but I will update) you can go here: Projects
So here I go working again.

After a really long development time (too long, with 6 months where I didn't even touch the code), neThing v0.7 has been completed and released. You can view the changelog to see the changes.

I have been developing the back-end for in deep thought for a long time now and I think the time has come for it to evolve into an actual web site package. To that end I have named the package "neThing". That doesn't change anything about the site itself. It is still called in deep thought and nothing has really changed except at the bottom it now reads "Powered by neThing". Eventually I'll package neThing for others to use.
