Optimized RG module.

This technology set has only had one new module added for MHS so far, but even so, the optimizations I am doing are making a big difference in how powerful this stuff is getting to be...

At the rate I have been working on MHS I estimate it will be finished in 3-5 days.

Just found a way to tweak a subsection of a statement used in several places within the skeleton script to produce VASTLY better results at what it is supposed to be doing... booyah.

RE: Shannon's Journal, Volume 2
Pretty sure I underestimated how long this build of MHS is going to take. As usual.

I'm going through the optimus engine with a fine tooth comb and optimizing the hell out of it, but it is a slooowwww process. To break it up, I am also working on creating a sandalwood fragrance. This fragrance is aimed at being a high end unisex fragrance, but I want it to speak to the quality of the person wearing it as being "all that, and so all that, that they don't have to even try to say they're all that".

I want it to be a modern, smooth, dry, woody, light, creamy, velvety, sawdusty, semi-fresh, natural, sexy, subtly erotic and addictive scent that recreates the best, most expensive old-wood Indian Mysore sandalwood oils that are now no longer available because all those 60-120 year old trees are gone, and the plantation grown stuff is being harvested too soon. We shall see how close I get...

I believe I can create a fragrance that is at least as good as the fragrance I am using as a model - Sacred Wood, from the By Kilian fragrance house. Sacred Wood is done by Calice Becker - one of my favorite perfumers. It's, so far, the best sandalwood fragrance I have found, and the 50 mL refill I have (cause I have plenty of 50 mL spray bottles, hehe) cost me $160. But this fragrance is a very, very good fragrance, so I am not sure how long this process will take. Today I am just calculating how to set up the key note of sandalwood. I'm using Santalum Album, real high grade sandalwood oil grown in a plantation in Australia, and from the same species of tree that Mysore sandalwood comes from. I have some genuine Mysore sandalwood, and this is somewhat lighter and less rich, but also in my opinion smells better. I get the impression from the musty smell that the Mysore I have was distilled from a dead tree. I of course don't want that.

Anyway... I am close to finished calculating the way to set up the sandalwood key note in the fragrance. Once that is done, then begins the long process of calculating all of the myriad steering notes... stuff you don't smell directly, but which makes the fragrance extraordinary instead of "just sandalwood". Some of that stuff would surprise you... but it typically takes 1-3 months to calculate all this and then verify the calculations. Much faster and easier, despite all the work, than doing it purely by nose, since I have a hard time smelling some of the components I work with.

Yay, all finished calculating how to set up the sandalwood key note!

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

RE: Shannon's Journal, Volume 2
Friday is, of course, my scheduled day of enforced rest. On Thursday night, I started communicating with my girlfriend again, and tried to explain to her that I was feeling ragey and very upset, and that is why I wanted space. I told her what she was doing that was bothering me, and that really seemed to let off some steam.

Then I decided that I was going to TRY to spend Friday with her, and told her that I would seek solitude again if things got too volatile. Don't need a fight.

She was very loving, kind, caring and demonstrative with me, and gave me a full body massage and then some amazing sex. That seemed to really take a lot of steam off, too. Since then she's been very affectionate and happy that she could help me calm down, and very much wanting... more sex. This girl is the natural sexual response to me by the Universe, so we have sex at least once a day by default whenever we are together and we have the chance. But once I had those displays of affection, genuine love and she went right into fixing the things she had been doing that bothered me, the rage pretty much has subsided.

There's still some anger and upset in there, but now it's "down the hall" being unhappy instead of trying to take me over and make me act like an enraged wild lion with claws and teeth and snarls.

Today, working on 6G prototype and MHS.

First 6 hours for G6 prototype, and second 6 hours on MHS. Hopefully this prevents me from burning out on the slog work.

RE: Shannon's Journal, Volume 2
I am managing to achieve some really exciting results in the models with the 6G prototype, but at the same time, I am so tired I am having a hard time being excited... although I surely am looking forward to seeing how this plays out when I build the next 6G prototype that I build.

RE: Shannon's Journal, Volume 2
What I am developing in the 6G prototype is exciting as hell... but the fact that I am forced to go so slowly... is killing it for me.

But rest assured. eventually you will be seeing the benefits of this work.

I'll be working on MHS again very soon. Just can't stop in the middle of developing something in the 6G prototype.

Apparently getting close to a final on the chocolate fragrance. It appears to be one of #22, #28 or #34. On to skin testing.

Crafting the CORE statements in MHS is a waking nightmare of complexity and frustration.

Nevertheless... it is happening... slowly but surely.

RE: Shannon's Journal, Volume 2
Optimus Engine 3.3 is getting so much of an upgrade that I am forced to use a major version number... MHS 5.5G will introduce Optimus Engine 4.0. Still gt a lot more work to do on it, but it's a lot different, and becoming a lot more powerful.
