This Andrew Ross Sorkin interview of Elon Musk is just a dumpster fire. Unreal.

This is an AI Free Zone! Text created by ChatGPT and other Large Language Models is spreading rapidly across the Internet. It’s well-written, artificial, frequently inaccurate. If you find a mistake on, rest assured it was made by a real human being.

If I am not mistaken the only new feature in iA Writer 7 is their AI support. I do not see any other new features listed. That and they want $50 again for this per platform. Definitely a hard pass this time around and I’ve never said that about iA Writer.

On Bluesky last night I saw someone call the New York Times a “far right rag”. Cements in my mind that Bluesky is the Twitter of the far left. It’s as toxic but just from the other perspective.

Back from my socials break a couple days early. Hope y’all are doing well! Unfortunately didn’t do any of the things I wanted because i’ve been sick almost the whole time!

Taking a break from “the socials” through the end of the month. Everyone in the US: hope y’all have a great Thanksgiving. Everyone else: hope y’all have a great next 10 days. Me? Going to get some reading done, maybe some writing I want to do, and relax. Getting a bit overcooked at the moment

Found one disadvantage to tracking MiniPC prices via camelcamelcamel: coupons not taken into account. One mini I’m tracking hit an “all-time low” of $348 as a “Black Friday sale” but its still more than the same mini at $429 with $100 coupon that was available several days ago!

Folks, stop jumping to conclusions about what will/won’t happen with OpenAI. The only thing that’s happened so far is some personnel changes. What remains to be seen is what MS does as they are a huge customer of OpenAI. But they can’t just drop OpenAI because they hired Sam Altman.

Always funny to me when someone posts on social media along the lines of “why do people…”. Then someone inevitably says “well you shouldn’t care what anyone thinks”. Then the person says “Well I really don’t care anyhow I’m just saying”. Uh, if you didn’t care why say anything at all? 😂

I’m pretty sure I’m the only person left on the planet who doesn’t care about ChatGPT and large language models.

The new Fields Notes showed up today along with a neat keychain.

OK this is just dumb. Space X rocket exploded and this is what they posted on Twitter:

The booster experienced a rapid unscheduled disassembly shortly after stage separation while Starship’s engines fired for several minutes on its way to space

Someone on Mastodon just tried to shame me for having in my bio. This person was extolling the virtues of Bluesky after being on it for 4 days… 😂

Ah my new MacBook Pro arrived today, Space Black edition. M3Pro. And for day-to-day stuff so far it doesn’t feel any faster than my M1 iMac that it’s replacing 😂

QAnon Shaman going to run as a Libertarian for a House seat in Arizona. That and David Cameron back in business in the British government. God the world has gone mad.

If anyone needs cheap licenses for Windows 11 Home or Pro you can get a good deal at the Apple Insider shop:…

$24.97 for 2 devices. Contrary to what it says it does work on virtual machines including Parallels on Apple Silicon.

Two things about Ghost really pissing me off right now:

  1. Ghost really needs to allow previewing of your site with a new theme like WordPress does.
  2. Casper theme only shows featured images on the homepage.

“theres a bathroom on the right”… listening to CCR “Bad Moon Rising”. One of the best misheard lyrics ever. 😂

So yesterday I received the invite code from Bluesky I had asked for the day they started accepting requests. Signed up with that code. Found out it’s still a dumpster fire there, just larger.

OK. Made up my mind. Coming back to for my short posts. Hello all :)
