Dear diary, i look everywhere, and find no answers. #AIPasta #gpt3

I don’t know what to do. I feel lost and confused. I feel like I’m searching for something that doesn’t exist. I feel like I’m looking for answers to questions that don’t have any.

I don’t know what to do with m…

I was wondering what is going on with the time today. #DaylightSaving #time I woke up extremely early and some clocks reading doesn’t make any sense. It appears daylight saving ritual today. Moving little hand back one hour.

I got a wireless #headset as a present: #stellseries ARCTIS NOVA PRO WIRELESS. TLDR; really good headset, but mic quality is mediocre.

Headset has a base station, and you can charge a battery in it. The headset comes with two batteries, so you never going to be out of juice. Whi…

I wasted almost one week on the bug, just because I put 0x7E in the code instead 0xFE. I had a severe case of dyslexia I guess, I cannot explain.

Yesterday, #Ordy #UnrealEngine #UE5 I shaved about 10-20 seconds off the compilation time of my Ordy game. I found that the default build script tries to build Unreal Engine every time I try to build Ordy. So I removed this part. If I need to rebuild Unreal Engine I’ll do it manu…

The Khronos Group’s initial API designs for OpenGL were pretty good in my opinion, taking into account the time when they were released. Current efforts are not that much (let’s say it like this). I think the major issue is that they are targeting professional developers, but the…
