Long COVID update: Chest pain is gone. I thought it was the main reason why I couldn’t make myself do things. And I feel normal, but still can’t make myself work. Strange, but at least there’s no pain.

Is it ethical to lie to the bot, or to the LLM?

ChatGPT

Lying to a bot, such as ChatGPT or any other LLM (language learning model), presents a different set of ethical considerations than lying to humans. Her…

I have a protocol, then I put my laptop in the backpack. I put the charging cable first, then the mouse, and lastly the laptop. The reason I am doing this is so I don’t forget the charging cable and mouse. And it happened. This weekend, I put the charging cable in my backpack and…

Pick random person for code review:

The Visual Studio editor is cursed. Why does pressing Enter not do what it should, and why does it indent the code and indent it incorrectly? Why does backspace not delete one space, but instead delete everything to the beginning of the line? Why is the editor blinking so much? H…

I discovered an interesting bias in my brain. I have some issues with the ML model I am working on; some tuning issues, it is too repetitive and tends to finish monologues earlier than desired. So I was trying to solve it by myself and it never crossed my mind to ask ChatGPT for …

I heard that in some prisons there is a way to torture prisoners by not giving them furniture to sit on; they have beds but not chairs. I recently got a glimpse of this sort of torture. The chair in the office was very uncomfortable. I bought a new one and it feels so good to sit…

There is no magic bullet in software engineering (khm Adjile). You just have to sit on your ass and code. If you spend time in meetings, you are not making progress. Progress is only made when you sit on your ass and code.

I have 13 billion parameters and 70 billion parameters Llama 2 sitting on my hard disk. And I realized, I have some chances to survive a zombie apocalypse. I have knowledge on my hard disk to bootstrap the civilization.

Should I try to ride the AI wave and create something around it? I have made multiple attempts in the past, but the technology was not ready at the time and it was quite expensive. Now, we have Llama which we can run offline.

We also have some successful examples like Seinfeld, …

I think we should start calling people who have reached the age of 25 “quarter-centurians”. Sounds cool!

I have a stupid question. How are trees helping to fight against global warming? So they use CO2 from the atmosphere and it becomes wood. When the tree dies and its trunk falls down and decays, it logically goes back to the atmosphere. To capture carbon, the tree has to fossilize…

TMI warning. Sometimes I use the multiplication challenge iPhone app on the toilet, instead of Twitter or TikTok. And if you make a multiplication mistake the app makes an awful fail sound. I noticed that if I disable sound I can solve sets of challenges way faster. I think negat…
