The MeCab Parser

After several weeks of intermittent study, research, and experimentation Grammar Captive installation of MySQL’s MeCab parser has finally been achieved.  What remains is its implementation.

The MeCab parser will allow Japanese visitors to use the Grammar Captive custom search engines to search single Japanese words and phrases in Japanese text.  Without the parser MySQL treats entire paragraphs of Japanese as single words, and the result is a failed search.  The solution is just around the corner.

Work on the CRON Scheduler continues.

It is hard to believe that this fall’s scheduled podcast launch has failed, but circumstances simply do not permit, and I will now shoot for the spring of 2019 — the Year of the Boar.

What is cool is that I have not surrendered and continue to push ahead with site development.

Life is full of surprises, but you can quit at anytime. No one owes you a living, but your parents, and even they are likely to make your life impossible, if you are not grateful. Certainly you are free to decide to be or not to be. The choice is yours; it is your freedom of last resort. Strive to be better, strive to be happy. Survival is a first step. It is primitive instinct. Although human, it does not distinguish you from other animals. So, if it is all that you want in life, please do not be surprised when others treat you like an ordinary animal.
