Catching up with neat-o fancy apps of web | app UI design, with universal or hybrid platform code bas

For first-time web | app (website-derived apps, or even in-page call stack coding “miniatures,” if you will) - somebody (like, myself), who is a “basically” amateur open-book sort of web app developer | aspirational type of approach to coding (except for Linux stuff, which has only limited-scope usefulness and portability, in this consideration of a use case scenario):

  • Many people, I imagine, simply draw a blank, as to what to do, in a case like this, since it was all just some imaginable “great” internet-borne experience.
  • Consequently, the urge to come up with something ingenious and worthwhile (worth talking about, perhaps) comes to mind.
  • The mind comes to consider that somebody else had already come up with this great idea.
  • A search on the Google Play Store or Apple’s App Store commences / newbies might, alternately, opt to try to break in to / subvert their devices security measures, and pursue some sort of disassembly of their device and or it’s operating system, for the sake of coming upon something “better.”


  • Ugh.
  • Personally, I stopped doing the self-hacking of the device and the disassembly thing, several years ago, since I was always at odds with coming up with something innovative, or productive. 

     To be certain, 

    most decent development ideas have already been derived and established, of an organic nature, independently - just as an offhand fleeting assertion; the notion could extend to as much as that we are always, it may seem, and from here on out - aside from the expectation of that novelty, as a general premise in development, and in discovery; perhaps, innovation, per se, we now have some recent seminal works on the limitations of novelty, given some development task. For example, in the recent years, leading up to this point in time, we have some of the formative rhetoric and ideological and logistical backdrop established, as to what can be attained and wrought, from out of an intersection between novelty and the influence of creative works, from the study:

    Park, D., Nam, J. & Park, J. Novelty and influence of creative works, and quantifying patterns of advances based on probabilistic references networks. EPJ Data Sci. 9, 2 (2020). https://doi.org/10.1140/epjds/s13688-019-0214-8

    “Also, there are implications for the psychological study of novelty as well. It has been known in optimal theory of novelty that the positive acceptance (also called the “hedonic value”) of novelty follows the so-called Wundt curve that increases initially but decreases after a peak, indicating that too much novelty can be off-putting to humans…”

    which includes references to information derived from yet other works:

    Berlyne, D. E. (1969). Arousal, reward and learning. Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences159(3), 1059-1070.
    and 

    Berlyne, D. E. (1970). Novelty, complexity, and hedonic value. Perception & psychophysics8(5), 279-286.

    Both, simply for a quick flash of the context’s potential subject areas, which could, or ought to be considered, in this case. 

    Essentially, the topic, in and of itself, supposes that novel ideas are limited, in their usefulness and in their longevity, yet, as we may observe, from the initially-cited article,

Product Review: Benzyl Benzoate - Consolidated Chemical Supply (CCS, Ltd.)

 Ah, the world of chemistry, and materials sciences. 



As common laypersons that we mostly are, by and large, we have to take heed to the fact that this is an area of knowledge and understanding that "exists," yet it passes through our lives rather transparently, as much of our lives which pertain to chemistry-based contexts are obscured from the significant potentiality of the chemicals that affect us, given brand and label marketing, as well as that many chemicals are typically the precedence and claim-stake of the medical and pharmaceutical industries.

Consolidated Chemical Supplies is a materials-science and research purposes e-commerce producer of high quality and completely pure (unless noted, in the labeling) chemical products, with a modest and appreciable product line of simple to intermediary (semi-pro, or prosumer) chemicals. I'm at a loss for eloquence, on the subject; for that matter, it's a natural and physical sciences topic. I majored in humanities, and I'm quite slow at comprehending and attaining on the strict math and sciences subjects. 

That being said, the U.S. government, and federally recognized associations, institutes, and organizations are dedicated to the dissemination of information on nearly any conceivable chemical composition, of interest and of industry, and they chart and list out all of the colloquialisms associated with chemicals that are sold in the manufacturing industry. In my case, I substituted Benzyl Alcohol for Benzyl Benzoate, in an aspiration project of mine, to produce a finery boutique natural products hair pomade, as fine as Murray's Pomade, which is by far superior to standard gel and soppy pomades that typically cost a lot more.


I simply figured, "it's a Benzyl-something," and I fancied that a benzoate is similarly solvent (as alcohol), of some capacity about it, and from there, I was sold on the first compelling Benzyl product that I could discover, for online retail sale, from a chemical resource materials supplier, which happened to be CCS, on Walmart.com.

I've only nibbled at the rich discovery endeavor that producing a suitably similar product, at small scale, yet with extravagant means in precluding the budgetary considerations of my product that I intend to manufacture: my primogeniture cosmetic product; even medi-aesthetics boutique couturier, for hair.

I’d been big in to trying to get my IoT development platform up and running, lately. Lots of expenses.

 Thanks to the California Employment Development Department, 

I’d been fortunate in having been a recipient of Unemployment Insurance money and Pandemic and Disaster Award Money, for having been affected directly by the COVID-19 disaster. My latest procurement is the Apple Watch. I’m interested in its platform basis in that it’s marketed as a tool for communications, but more so compellingly, for me, at this point in time, of that it’s an Apple device that’s concerned with the users’ health and well-being. 


And then, if you’d ever been in to working aspirations in to developing on IoT devices (bare chip boards, with embedded circuitry and processing microcontrollers), then you know how the nights on end can be relentless endeavors of discovering and perusing internet literature and forums for a glimmer of hope, short of being reportedly well-dialed in and having successfully SSH’d or provisioned the hardware and accessories appropriately, attained a fully autonomous Internet of Things microcontroller project, co-processor project, Machine Learning, prototype, or embedded device. 

My current “Things” are a mix mash of trying to maintain finery, amidst the shortcomings of small enterprise, in a world of just-burgeoning documentation, coverage, and marketing of a platform-profiteering move in and on topic of the Google Coral platform, which is the current IoT | AIY platform that I’m (trying) to successfully get up and running. I’d been covering it on Twitter. It’s been a whole lot of splotch bum asides and subsequent coming-clean, of that 

okay, I fwushuthuthuthuthgghhh:

I fwopped it.

In fact, I flopped it so bwamm, that I ended up landing on the first page of Google Search for Google Fwopp:


Here’s how I’ve been getting by:



That’s pretty much that, as far as daily nutritional intake and self care. 

And then, 


I’m working on this orthogonal counter-ingress and directionality assertiveness motive of in-home aesthetics and a bit of complement to the great outdoors, of which this locality features the much of on greatness: the jet stream, which, as for the ionic mineral concentrates that I have, purportedly mills the ions and organum matter of the witting participants of such, as well as that of the gross polluters of the nearby and surrounding ecology of the area. I try to clean up some of the mess, sometimes, as per my charity arm of my enterprise in blogging, at scrumbwitsies.us

Just a quick check in, for keeping up with something on here, for posterity’s sake. I’ll try to check in with something more compelling and pleasant soon.
