Been poking at the machine learning project, can't figure out why it doesn't work. Grr.

The lowercase glyphs of Slavkappen (nee "cage boof") are coming along pretty well. The t needs work and the d needs some, like, steroids, and I may have to give up on the way the g is structured, since it doesn't seem to blend well with the rest of the face. On the other hand, I'm very happy I got a workable s, and I like the q, and the m,n,i,j are pretty solid, all having been based on a similar structure with a few stretchy variations. I like the r. The h may need some horizontal tightening-up. The e's "eye", or whatever the term for it is, is perhaps a little too small. The top of the a is kind of off at an idiosyncratic angle, and I can't decide if I like it or not. I should get around to doing an alternate, more modern k, for less of the boofiness.

The source of the pseudo-german "mit slavkäppen raisen" (oh, yeah, I need to add the umlauts!) is tom7's notebook page http://www.andrew.cmu.edu/user/twm/note3/98-41.gif, back from the heady days of 15-212 recitation.

Man, that d gets worse every time I look at it.
