I should practice for the technical interview next week, and I am playing around with AI image generation.


๐ŸŒธ Thu, May 16, 2024 ๐ŸŒธ

Similarly to Llama.cpp, there is a stable-diffusion.cpp, which allows you to generate AI images purely on CPUโ€”perfect for “image generation on potato computers.” Since itโ€™s written in C++, it might be super easy to integrate into Unreal Engine. What a great time to be alive! …

So, I have got sick. Running nose, watering eyes, sneezing, itchy throat. I have got that sick first time after I got COVID last year in March. I thought I had gained a superpower from my long-COVID to resist any infection. My body definitely became more resistant to infections b…

Hey, next week is a technical interview with Meta. Wish me luck.

I realized that in the event of a zombie apocalypse and the collapse of civilization, we don’t need super-smart AI; we need super-knowledgeable AI. If we can ask factual questions and get accurate answers, that would be good enough. How do you start a fire with this, this, and th…

SpaceX can make an offer to install Starlinks on aircraft; I think it’s a pretty promising B2B idea.

Solar energy, harvested using solar panels, is essentially fusion power since it originates from the Sun, which is powered by a fusion reaction. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

It seems that SFW and NSFW are merging, and they both are becoming NSFW. I am pretty sure nobody watching content in the office tagged as SFW.

Git should change the defaults to clone with recursive submodules by default. I am tired of typing --recursive

AwesomeBump allows you to author textures. Yesterday, I played around with it a bit to create a normal map for the granola bar static mesh.

I think studying physics would be a lot more fun if physicists referred to particles as balls. Everything is a ball, and everything is made of balls. “Physics of Elementary Balls.”

Just updated the firmware on my laptop, hopefully it will start charging my battery to the level I set, not to some random numbers like 69%. Just checked, nope; it’s stuck on 64%. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Quite often I see the following pattern in C++:

int64_t getSomeValue()
{
    static int64_t cache = 0;
    if (cache)
        return cache;
    // expensive calculation with assigning the calculated value to the cache
    return cache;
}

While t…

My sense of taste changed after wisdom tooth extraction; noticeable change: water has got some hint of metallic taste. I hope I’ll get used to it or my sense of taste will get back to normal.

I’ve got an idea for a horror game where the player is an AI assistant, similar to Alexa or Google Mini. Initially, everything seems innocent, with tasks like telling the time or reporting the weather. However, things take a turn as the game starts to gaslight the player into thi…

I just noticed I accidentally switched ChatGPT from 4 to 3.5. I literally got angry with ChatGPT earlier today because of how stupid 3.5 is.

What’s going on with UI lately? The X and Y coordinates have to be exactly the same on mouse button down and mouse button up. It’s impossible to click on buttons using my Wacom tablet. I remember having struggles on Samsung’s website once, with emoji selection on KDE, and with so…

Elon Musk was advocating for governmental regulation around AI development. I’m not sure what his current stance is. In general, I disagree. Even if he’s right about regulations, if we’re going to have them, they should be worldwide. Again, I want to emphasize that I disagree wit…

I want to have an app that consolidates feeds from multiple microblogging platforms. X is fun, but sometimes it feels one-sided, with everyone praising Elon, dismissing white male privilege, and trolling woke people. At some point, I might get brainwashed. I need some other sourc…

I have an idea for a game called “Backend Engineer.” The gameplay would be similar to a backrooms experience, but you’d get lost in a data center.

Another reminiscence of the early Windows days: We had a “hello world” example for Windows, and everybody was mocking that example for having an extremely heavy amount of boilerplate code. Question to Khronos: Why did you do the same thing to Vulkan?
