C++ thought: Non-default destructors should automatically disable copy and move copy constructors.

I never had a myspace account. Should I create one?

Huh? What reason?

I’m afraid that GPT-3 and DALL-E 2 will turn into a Planet of the Apes situation. I didn’t watch the movie, but in the book, after the apes took over the planet, the progress stopped. I’m afraid that we will start relying on AI so much that it may stop the progress or significantly slow it down.

Since I have some problems with my wrists, I am using a Wacom tablet as my main point and click device. It is not a perfect substitution for the mouse: the scroll wheel is missing, and clicks are not very precise. It also does not work very well with multiple screens. Also, a lot of accidental clicks occur; just a light touch on the tablet triggers the click. Later I am trying to fix it so that the click only occurs with a firmer touch. And now I am realizing I do not have good feedback, sometimes I do not know if I pressed strong enough to trigger the click. I would like to have some visual flicker on the cursor and maybe some sound on the click and release.

It is quite daunting to make a full featured game. By my estimation, it will take at least 5 years. I want it now, of course. I was thinking about different approaches to speed up the game development process. One was to automate as much as possible and also leverage GPT-3 for storymaking and game design.

I started working on it, first with procedural buildings. Then, I made a little text-based game using GPT-3. Still, it will require a lot of time to have a good set of tools.

I am thinking of creating some traction by making minigames using the code from my experiments. I want the games to be funny and meme-focused, and also focus on how the game is going to look on the stream. I will release it on itch.io for free and advertise it to streamers.

This way, I will be able to expose myself as a game developer and test my tech in a real environment.

What is going on with Amazon product pictures? Recently we ordered a couple products and they were much smaller than we expected. The scrubber for the grill grids and the towel hooks. Some of my friends are saying you’re stupid and that you should always check product dimensions. Am I stupid or are sellers intentionally making pictures to make products look bigger?

eerie - strange and frightening.
