There is a quite effective metric in UI design: the number of mouse clicks to achieve the task. Less mouse clicks are better. For example, selection from radio buttons takes one mouse click; selection from a combo box takes two clicks. So radio buttons are better in sacrifice for…

Game Idea: weed farm simulator. I don’t think it would fly though.

YouTube changed. Objectively, I click away from the video way more often than I used to do. I did a spot check for 5, 6, and 7-year-old videos; watched them from start to finish with no problems. Good for me though, less distractions.

About a year ago, I bought 20 64GB USB flash drives for $150. It was a terrible deal in any terms; my thinking was that I could backup data and use the sharpie to mark the disks. What I learned is that they are very slow; it took about 8 hours to transfer data. So, they were sitt…

KDE Plasma desktop clipboard is persistent with the laptop reboots; imagine my surprise when I pasted the text after I rebooted my laptop.

Long COVID - still have it. I had a grace period for two months last year, November and December - no symptoms. Symptoms came back - a little. But today, full power: chest pain and phantom tobacco smell. And I cannot do anything; it just stays here, no matter what I do. I can mak…

I use so much ChatGPT that I realized I have a hard time using Google now. On one of the tasks, ChatGPT failed miserably; so I tried to Google and couldn’t switch my brain to the googling mode, you know that alien way to make queries: ‘ue5 transparency tutorial’.

Google needs to work a little on YouTube Music: polish up the look and feel, make replay and shuffle less buggy, and the most important thing is to make the volume button logarithmic.

Maybe we should get back to the origin of the Internet, where it had a decentralized nature and everyone had their own cute website hosted on their personal PC?

Government, CEOs, CTOs, lawyers, directors, corporations and worried moms: can you just allow players to play great games? And game developers make great games? Am I asking for too much?

I am addicted to Twitter, and it’s doom scrolling; reading Twitter gives me a feeling of being powerless. There is so much that needs to be fixed in the world, and it is overwhelming.

Why is there a price difference between reading glasses and prescription glasses that are 100x? Reading glasses cost $1-$3, while prescription glasses cost around $200.

Digits in any font, monospace or non-monospace, have to be monospaced (0123456789 should have the same width) - fight me.

So, I think Elon Musk’s strategy to win in the lawsuit against Open AI is to allow jurors to play around with GPT-4 and give a verdict if it is AGI. And GPT-4 is quite impressive; you need to try a lot and really hard to find its weak spots. So jurors have a high chance of saying…

I have a question: why are we teaching AI to do fun things, like writing books, drawing pictures, and playing games? Why aren’t we teaching AI to do boring things, like folding laundry, washing dishes, and mopping the floor?

First, I do not remember my dreams; second, I don’t like to tell my dreams. But this one stuck in my head.

I am in the conference, and the conference is ended; so I am packing to leave my hotel room. And I realize that the backpack is missing. And I remembered that I left it in…

LLMs usually have a parameter called temperature, which allows the model to randomly pick from broader sets of words. The usual simplified explanation is that it increases the “creativity” of the model. I am realizing that it is applied only to the last layer of the network; how …
