What we need is another AI to watch it! Then another to watch that one. And another…

I dislike the idea that we spend so much effort trying to hide our humanity in these. Turning it so corporate clean and inhuman that its barely useful.

Yeah, yeah, like most people I also don’t like that they are created from stolen content. But ALOT of people seems to hate LLM with a passion just because its trendy, with very little thought to that its just a tool, and it cannot be uninvented.

But having to find and pay each content creator is only an option for bigger corporations, of course. And a lot of work. If they wanted to do it legally and morally right, they would use only stuff that has fallen out of copyright. And we would have an autocompleter that spoke like a 1900 roman character. Wouldn’t work. Its sad that copyright lasts this long. That we can’t use more current content more freely for anything like the new inventions like LLMs, or for other kinds of research, or for making museums, or archive old games in a usable state. People do it, of course, and its sad seeing them occasionally taken down for their hard work just because the content isn’t authors death plus 70 years old.

Well, sometimes an end to a discussion is exactly whats needed. Sometimes. Like when theres literally nothing to do about something. Or the discussion is going in circles. Or when it would take shorter time to try it out in practice than have another meeting about the best way to implement it.

Easy, you just name them after whatevers distinguish that bee. Like if the bee only can see on four of his five eyes, you naturally call him Foureye.

Should. But its not like we can force them to grow up and become responsible.

emptyother,
@emptyother@programming.dev avatar

No. But I am responsible for my own and my friends and family’s safety.

So what is right, is it to let these be free to indoctrinate themselves into hating me and my fellow humans and spreading harmful beliefs until theres no room for our kind? Or is it to police what they are allowed to consume and become the fascist I didnt want these gullible fools to become? Also if we did, how long until someone turned it around on us: Declared themselves the less gullible ones and worthy of policing what we should watch?

Assuming most humans means well and want good, we’d always outnumber and outvote those who are fool enough to believe in the hate. But seeing politicians who demonstrately and openly want the worst towards certain people, somehow manage to get voted into leadership of one of the most influental countries in the world… It has shaken my belief in that tolerance will win out in a democracy.

Once. It’ll better be one hell of an ad because it will lose them my subscription. I stopped watching television back in the late 90s because of all the ads, before even I had internet to watch pirated media. I don’t wear clothes with too visible logos. Just saying to illustrate how this ain’t an empty threat.

Losing a single customer probably doesn’t matter to them. But I hope Im not the only one?

Yeah, theres a very good reason I dont use Spotify anymore. Not any music streaming services at all. Only good ol’ reliable mp3s. Their idea of “service” is to silently remove songs from my playlists as their licenses expire, and then top it by replacing “Hotel California” with the WORST cover song I’ve ever heard.

Imagine if Sony stopped selling on Steam, and Steam in response silently replaced my “Days Gone” game with “The Day Before”? I would have been so pissed. But with music it seems that is totally okay.

Well… Technically that shit was 3D. Buildings, signs, and fences had perspective. And the streets looked pretty sweet in level editors that allowed one to move the camera to ground view. If one didn’t mind seeing flat cars and flat people, because those were 2D.

Anyway, I’m just being annoyingly pedantic as an excuse to share some nostalgic memories of that game. Don’t mind me.

I’m guessing android app store does some kind of staggered update schedule but the apps themselves got code that demands it always be on the latest version. Just guessing, mind you.

Yeah,when I got more than 30 totp accounts, I gave up on keeping them separate. Its still better than 1FA.

I know I heard my name called occasionally as a kid. Clear as day but directionless, seemingly from very close to me. I figured its just a bug in a developing mind. But could also be that my mom got damn angry if I didnt hear her calling so I was always listening for it, and like the article describe, I picked up noise and the brain filled in the expectation.

emptyother,
@emptyother@programming.dev avatar

Oh this is gonna be great! I hope. Except… There something about the graphics, I cant figure out what, that makes it feel less realistic. To me at least. Is it just my nostalgia for the old pixelated graphics that ruins how it looks? Or is it something more tangible, that might possibly even be fixed before release?

Its music level released on YT gave it a lot of exposure. If even that wasn’t enough, what hope do we have for an Alan Wake 3 or Control 2 without a crappy tacked-on monetization scheme? Because thats always next if a singleplayer game series doesn’t make as much money as the publishers wanted it to.

Oh hell no, my last known action on this earth is NOT gonna be spent complaining about someone else’s music skills. Unless they are playing a vuvuzela or something…

Absolutely, bringing laughter and curiosity to people worldwide 2K years later is THE way to face death. But that guy is gonna be hard to beat…

I’ve caught myself thinking it was an Onion article before, only to discover it wasn’t. And I’ve heard these morons refer to someone as both Jewish and Palestinian in the same sentence. And woke and commie. So this isn’t that far into unbelievable.

And if he doesn’t, thats a “loss” for some reason. Nothing is actually lost mind you, there is no 7.5 trillion pounds of baby meat in a dump somewhere.

I had to fight an annoying bug like this in our companys frontend code once. That specific country’s pretty-date settings insisted on returning only the last two digits of a year, and the UI framework’s date input field read it like that before parsing it back to a date.

People get addicted to delivery apps cause it lets you pretend you're on vacation all the time

it feels similar in egregious price to getting room service, and you don’t even have to talk to the guy, and you can convince yourself it’s nice to treat yourself you’ve been working hard etc etc. you don’t have to do any dishes or think about all the rotten shit in the fridge. it can feel like a legitimate mental break,...

For us on a mental break…down, having delivery available is our chance at a decent dinner. Yes its expensive but im paying for not having to spend an hour making the dinner and not having to sit in a restaurant waiting for a to-go meal and not having to interact with people. Neither which I would do anyway. Its better than staring hungry at the ceiling but too depressed to do anything about it so when I finally is so hungry I can’t even sleep I go out to a night-open kiosk and buy myself a bag of potato chips and some soda or a frozen pizza.

Well, that was a very specific example for why the post-covid app delivery trend is awesome. Before it the only delivery was pizza around here.

Though I do wish there was more variation. Restaurants are too city-district grouped. Within my delivery area (where I can still get a meal still hot and not pay extra), Torshov in Oslo, there is mostly burgers, kebabs, thai, and sushi food restaurants. Fish meals, italian, or sandwiches needs to be shipped from centrum. Norwegian-food style restaurants don’t do delivery. Not that I’m complaining, I’m just suggesting improvements to some strangers on the web that can do nothing about it. 🫤

We get some nice cleanup this generation

So in the past, people were sort of pushed into mariage and to have kids. And this went on for centuries actually. This caused that even if you didn’t want to have kids, you had some. Humanity drag those people’s genes even if they didn’t want to. But now, with more free world, we sort of get rid of those people, the only...

Theres a small problem with this: Fewer young workers to care for all the childless old people.

Or so they say… I don’t know, sounds like a problem we would have to deal with eventually anyway as earth population growth slows and average life span grows. Doesn’t help that healthcare workers are underpaid and medicine is overpriced, I’m sure.

Nobody ever knows. I personally upvoted because I agree that less social pressure to follow norms is good, and i didn’t know I was in the unpopular opinion sub.

Yeah, sex scene and sex jokes was a bit surprising, compared to how tame Bethesda games are on stuff like that. Well, at least the unmodded ones.

But didn’t scare me away after first episode either. Looks promising.
