Because of an imbalance of power between employees and supervisors (employees' financial situation depends on whether they will have a job the next day or not), supervisors must be extremely explicit in their requests. For example, if a supervisor sees an employee is sick, they s…

Every once in a while, my mind replays the moment back in Russia when I got an F on the physics exam and the professor said, “What are you doing here? Go back to your village.” He said it because I am Asian, and he made assumptions based on my appearance. I don’t blame him; the s…
I was wondering what the heck “lorder” is, like “little lord” or something; it appeared to be “i order”.
I like the feel I get from wearing reading glasses; it gives everything a cinematic look. I have never been nearsighted, so the background has never been blurry. When I wear reading glasses, the background is blurry and it gives me a feeling like I am in some fancy movie.
I learned roughly 30% of people have some sort of intolerance to fructose, and it looks like my body reacts quite badly to fructose. My current solution is to minimize the amount of sugar in my diet. As I learned glucose is fine, it would be nice to be able to know how much gluco…
I cannot shake the feeling that THIS emote ʌ (usually it is an animated caret symbol, or an arrow pointing up with “this” words underneath, or just “THIS TBH”) is slightly offensive. Talk me out of it.
The Twitter algorithm was open-sourced about a month ago, and it had been active for a while; I saw a couple of pull requests were merged, but currently I see the last commit was two weeks ago. I am assuming the best of intentions, but it does not look good not having any commits…
I am testing the game in different languages and Russian worked perfectly; I switched to French and the controllers stopped working. It doesn’t make any sense. Do controllers speak English to consoles, or do I need to make the controller speak French now?
Guys, let’s start paying attention to what the government is doing. I’ve only touched the tip of the iceberg and it is completely messed up. We should fix it.
TIL; a whole new word: “lane”. I used to call it “line” before.
I think Notch wanted to make Factoria, but accidentally made Minecraft
Here is a thought from Elon Musk that I found while browsing Twitter. I’m going to rephrase it a little, but the idea is: when developing a new technology, initially target it as something luxurious for wealthy people. The point is that the new technology is not yet polished or o…
Now I have gotten Elon’s joke about him being an alien. I was an alien also for 6 years until I got my US passport.
I thought about how we can fix healthcare in the US. I think the first step should be banning insurance institutions. Insurance essentially is gambling based on human fear, and only insurance companies are winning in this setup. Additionally, it inflates prices.
Yeee… TyePodDog is back to life. Long live TyePodDog!
Game Idea: “Among Us,” but the imposter is an AI. Players have to find out who is the AI.
I love ChatGPT; it is so smart, patient, and always cool. As humans, we should learn from it.
I am looking at my 14-year-old son; he behaves like an adult, he thinks and talks like an adult. That is crazy; I don’t think I was like this at my 14 years old.
I have become frustrated with how our tax money is distributed, and I used ChatGPT as my therapist as usual, and suddenly became a fan of UBI (Universal Basic Income).
I am trying to be positive, but honestly it is getting under my skin. I am sick of typing my corporate password every 5 minutes.
I asked ChatGPT: “Write a blog post on the following premise: Turing completeness of your config = code smells.”
Title: Turing Completeness of Your Config: The Gateway to Code Smells
As developers, we strive to build efficient, maintainable, and reliable software…
Lately, talking with my friend over voice on my phone on Discord and WhatsApp, we found out, surprise surprise, that just calling on the phone, actually dialing the number, works the best.
Turning completeness in your config = code smells
