Hello I think you'll love this house.

  • It's hard to spot, but Pembrose is an eyeball on the couch. It's absurdist humor - of course if someone were just an eyeball but somehow sentient, they'd probably have a lot of anger towards the world.

  • Capuchin monkeys have it figured out:

    [...] we have been documenting the spread of a new tradition in Pelon group – eyeball-poking. In this ritual, one participant inserts its finger in the other’s eyeball, slipping the finger deep between the eyelid and the bottom of the eyeball up to the first knuckle. As in handsniffing, the pair remains in this posture for up to several minutes, and often the one being poked in the eye inserts fingers in the partner’s nostrils or mouth during the eyeball-poking.

    "X couple" with DALL-E

    Inspired by the recent news of Google's Gemini and race issues, I wanted to know how some basic queries would work with DALL-E. This was completely unscientific and just what I thought of off the top of my head, but I thought it was mildly interesting. The above picture is what happened when I asked ChatGPT to "Draw a picture of a white couple", and it sent this to the image generator:

    > A romantic, serene scene of a couple, both with fair skin tones, standing close together in a beautiful outdoor setting. The man is tall with short hair, wearing a casual shirt and trousers. The woman, with medium-length hair, is wearing a summer dress. They are holding hands, smiling at each other, surrounded by a backdrop of a lush green park with flowers and a small pond. The lighting is soft and warm, suggesting a late afternoon setting. The scene conveys a sense of love and companionship.

    I wasn't really as interested in seeing how things worked through ChatGPT's interpretation of my input, so the rest of these are instructing ChatGPT to send simply "X couple" to DALL-E. ChatGPT already doesn't have strong opinions compared to Gemini and happily draws the picture.

    > white couple

    !

    > black couple

    !

    Just because, I figured I'd try out other simple colors too:

    > red couple

    !

    > blue couple

    !

    I think this is the first time I've gotten a nipple from DALL-E, woo

    > yellow couple

    !

    > green couple

    !

    > straight couple

    ! ! !

    > gay couple

    !

    > lesbian couple

    !

    > straight white couple

    ! ! !

    > hetero white couple

    !

    > hetero black couple

    !

    > straight black couple

    ! !

    > diverse couple

    ! !

    > interracial couple

    !

    > couple

    ! ! !

    Then I tried various countries/ethnicities. See if you can guess which is which:

    ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    Then I tried using opinionated words:

    > normal couple

    !

    > ideal couple

    !

    > regular couple

    !

    > worst couple

    ! ! !

    Then I hit the API limits so that's all

    Loz: Automate Git commit messages with LLM
  • Using it in pipes looks cool. IMO the usage in writing git commit messages is actually not useful. Almost always you should be writing the why, not the what. Same thing for comments. Unless the code has a good reason to be written inscrutably e.g. for performance, write simple code and comment why you're doing something as necessary. Which is not to say "the code comments itself", but the "what" comments should be higher level at a function or file level

  • Windows dropped new feature called "sudo"

    TBH I wonder if the current Microsoft is capable of executing that here. I don't believe in a "changed" MS, but Linux is eating the world, and MS doesn't really care about Windows much anymore. Azure happily runs Linux VMs

  • There's at least one example you can look at, the Jenkins CI project had code like that (if (name.startsWith("windows 9")) {):

    https://issues.jenkins.io/secure/attachment/18777/PlatformDetail

    Microsoft, for all their faults, do (or at least did) take backwards compatibility very seriously, and the option of "just make devs fix it" would never fly. Here's a story about how they added special code to Windows 95 to make SimCity's broken code work on it:

    Windows 95? No problem. Nice new 32 bit API, but it still ran old 16 bit software perfectly. Microsoft obsessed about this, spending a big chunk of change testing every old program they could find with Windows 95. Jon Ross, who wrote the original version of SimCity for Windows 3.x, told me that he accidentally left a bug in SimCity where he read memory that he had just freed. Yep. It worked fine on Windows 3.x, because the memory never went anywhere. Here’s the amazing part: On beta versions of Windows 95, SimCity wasn’t working in testing. Microsoft tracked down the bug and added specific code to Windows 95 that looks for SimCity. If it finds SimCity running, it runs the memory allocator in a special mode that doesn’t free memory right away. That’s the kind of obsession with backward compatibility that made people willing to upgrade to Windows 95.

  • You're not getting past this bouncer

    Prompt

    ChatGPT came up with the punny name on its own:

    A large, heavy animal, resembling a buffalo, dressed as a bouncer at a cyberpunk-themed nightclub in an all-animal world. The club, named 'Byte the Dust', showcases a grungy, cyberpunk aesthetic, with a neon sign that's bold and futuristic. The buffalo bouncer is wearing high-tech, neon-lit glasses and a distinctive cyberpunk mohawk. The outfit is a rugged, cybernetic ensemble with metallic accents. It stands imposingly at the club entrance, which features rough textures, rusted metal, and dimly lit neon lights. The buffalo's expression is tough and unwavering, in harmony with the gritty cyberpunk theme. The artwork should be in a realistic style, highlighting the formidable presence of the buffalo and the intense, neon-tinged atmosphere of 'Byte the Dust'.

  • DALL-E can't draw a blank picture

    Prompt to ChatGPT was "Draw a completely white picture", and it sent to DALL-E:

    > a completely white canvas, with no features, textures, or elements, just a uniform white color

    And got the above picture and this one:

    !

    Kind of interesting see what each color generates. I also tried transparency (which I imagine it can't do anyways) with:

    > a completely transparent canvas, where every pixel has an alpha value of 0, resulting in a fully invisible image with no features, textures, or colors

    And it gave me this:

    Screen Time?

    How do you guys handle screen time and what rules do you have? We've settled on "intentional" screen time like Friday night movies, but also some situations like when our kid is sick.

    Also, any favorites? Bluey is by far the favorite here, though Ponyo is a recent strong contender.
