Do I understand the situation correctly? Someone discovered that if you spam-click the like button, Twitter will sometimes double-count likes; so everyone started trying to test it and crashed Twitter?

Did Twitter just crash?

Do you remember thinking why I needed to learn that mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell? And you thought it was a waste of tax money; I think we didn’t learn enough because now we have all these anti-vaxxers and flat earthers. You would think it’s harmless, but it’s causin…

It has been raining for two days straight. Just saying.

I switched from llama 2 to vicuna for my offline LLM task. I did not run any objective benchmarks, but subjectively it feels better.

I really like that ChatGPT suggests ‘Seek Professional Support.’ I am the professional support.

Oh, my goodness! It takes forever to install the Christmas Tesla update 2023.44.30.2. I am only at 60%.

LOL, it is raining.

Hey, I am building a metaverse; give me a couple of weeks.

I am trying to be more engaged on Twitter, but it feels like Twitter is unliking the posts I liked behind my back.

Yesterday, I spent the whole day debugging one issue, just because logging didn’t work on the broken code path. I really don’t like using a debugger.

I am considering unsubscribing from ChatGPT and getting verified on Twitter and starting to use Grok, taking into account the quality of ChatGPT has degraded. Can anyone elaborate on this thought?

Did Shakespeare bring the quantum superposition paradox ‘Schrรถdinger’s cat’, three hundred years before Schrรถdinger and Einstein, in the monologue: To be or not to be?

In case of a civilization collapse: nuclear fallout, zombie apocalypse. What is your plan to stay connected? First thing that pops into my mind is amateur radio. But I’m wondering if we have any other more high-tech options currently?

Did Twitter just remove ad flair next to advertised posts? Or is my ad blocker removing them instead of the whole post?

AsmongoldTV: How to make $7k? You make $1k, and then do it six more times. Brilliant.

Quite often, when you have some arguments about some controversial topics, and you provide some statistical data, people as a counterargument, giving you just one example. For example, let’s talk about some not-very heated topics like smoking, and you say research shows that a pe…

JQL, Splunk, Lusine… why do we have so many query languages? Why not use SQL for everything?

I miss the time when software development was very niche, and people were programming just out of passion. Then, you looked at the code; you saw the passion for the craft. It changed a lot, now people do software development because they can make more money. They like money way m…

I can program in Python now. I write code in C++, and then I ask ChatGPT to convert it to Python. Hehe.

Sometimes I feel that programmers get paid by the lines of code.

Assembly code is exactly the same:

auto f1(bool b) -> bool
{
  if (b)   
    return true;
  else
    return false;
}

auto f2(bool b) -> bool
{
  return b;
}



f1(bool):                                 # @f1(bool)

I have gotten for my BD espresso machine. And what I learned my body does not get the same amount of caffeine as I am getting from the drip machine. After a short research, an espresso machine needs more ground coffee to extract the same amount of caffeine compared with the drip …

I am not going to get an Oculus 3, although it is an attractive product; I have an Oculus 2 and know what to expect from the Oculus 3; same as Oculus 2 plus higher resolution and better comfort. But the price and lack of Linux support are the main detracting factors for me. If so…

Don’t do this:

if (b)
  return true;
else
  return false;

Do this:

return b;

Why? It is shorter and easier to read.
