Intending to produce my NaNoGenMo project in a chair in the sky over the next 6 hours.

Will be updating here.

(Unless the wifi is broken.)

Stay tuned.

We just reached 10,000 feet, meaning I can plug into a power outlet and use the inflight wifi.

On a brand new plane's maiden voyage.

Impressive network speed. Hmmm....

Some GPT-2 poems as a warm-up....

Hoping to get some initial inspiration for my project on this flight.


First from that verification pic + latest version of word.camera

Just for verification.....

Head of a person
you make me aware
that you are bleeding sensitive
you prepare me to receive information
because I am blind and so that appointments
Laptop screen is on fire
I have a gold umbrella
and I preside over my property
I live in a house with many rooms
It is raining outside


Next, let's try generating a poem titled "2019"....

2019

I go down the hill with two companions,
Stepping between the boughs of the oak
With a thin blue flame that burns night-long
Through the transparent vestments of the grass,
Lifting the seed to the sky, and sowing
With it the trees themselves;
Nor at all, just tender and yielding
To the cold and hunger-possessed wind
That caves in the ruins of cities,
And the scarred hems of mountains;
And erect the wind
To that slight delay
Under the ninety-eight,
A dream of the grass, a sleep
At the golden latch of the mind.
All this the world well knows;
But not as yet.
And the hollow clock
Prostates it nought.
Like a stopped
Voice, its cadence sounds outwalled
To the point of the rooted hip.
The brushwood, waiting
To be darked
By the dark, is silent;
Though the black willow
Hurries on the bridge
Like eggs that wriggled
When the wind blows,
Can never be shattered
By the lightning's fist.
And the order of the book
Is a thing
Of the past,
Perceived now as a reward.
Of what?
Magnetic locks
Restore us
To the body's weight.
Now, its weight
Is the asked, unexpected,
A crux foul of the heart.
It is the breaking
Of the early tailor,
Smeared with the sulphur, ready
To acid on the hands
That serve the deadly lust.
The shepherd here,
Like the shepherd swain,
Sees his peril plain
And calls his sin
By a cry of breath.

Internet has been slowing down and cutting out randomly throughout the flight... hence the lack of updates in the repo I posted earlier.

Despite this, I've been making progress on a generated novel about various "ghost flights" between defunct airports around the world. (I scraped the airport names from Wikipedia.)

Stay tuned.

Amazing! If you post a link to the source later we can consider this one complete.

Darius, the code I wrote for this is available here:
https://github.com/rossgoodwin/flight359

Note there are some API calls to my GPU server on which I host models for sampling. I do not have much interest in open sourcing the model yet, to be honest.
