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 significant…

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…

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 st…

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….

Ubuntu like 22.04 OSes are coming with pipewire instead of pulseaudio. On my machine, it has a bug and sometimes does not recognize new audio devices. In this case, I need to restart pipewire with the following command:

I am trying to code, and the code is not going. And I realized I forgot to wear my programmer socks. But when I put them on, I realized they were just regular socks with binary code printed on them. (GPT-3 assisted story)

C++ compiler so slow, and does some much optimization, sometimes I think it’s Deep Thought computer from Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. You put tons of C++ code in it, and after a while it generates assembly

eax, 42
pop rbp

and you have no idea why.

www.quora.com is useless.

Quite often, answers are useless, e.g., no, you cannot do it; you have to be able to read assembly code. But I can read assembly.
