    I keep hearing how using the recent generative AI/GPT tools can seem borderline sketchy, but I’d like to hear what are tasks/methods/chores that tools like ChatGPT has helped you with to the point you can never consider going back to the old ways if you can avoid it?

    I’ll go first: quick recipes and shopping lists.

    Made it to Micro.Camp 2024! Here to learn all about how other people are using this service and blogging in general as opposed to spending all the time on “Big Social”. (my first one with as a supporting paid micro.blog member too!) #indieweb #blogging #smolweb (What the heck is micro.camp and micro.blog anyway?)

    for some reason, I’m into online crossword puzzles now.

    some of y’all think the stuff you see on the news won’t ever affect y’all.

    but that’s bullshit.

    I remember 4 of my cousins getting hooked on crack cocaine in the ghetto of St Louis, my hometown in the 80’s.

    I remember seeing a very affluent dude who ran a chain of waterbed stores freebase a rock in survellance TV from the police about 10 years later.

    I remember going to my very innercity high school in the same town getting checked for guns every morning like we’re going through airport security.

    I remember Columbine, Sandy Hook, and all these other places that have actually had guns shoot up their schools. Did they have clear backpacks or spot bag checks?

    y’all think what you see on TV won’t affect you.

    I went to sleep hearing guns buck buck bucking and the tink tink tinking of rounds on my street. It wasn’t some faraway war in a land i can’t pronounce. It was on streets named Sacramento, Red Bud and Kossuth.

    But now im watching TV and seeing the same in towns with less people than my whole block. By people who have more money than all the people in my old zip code.

    y’all think it’ll only stay on TV, and won’t come knocking on your door though.

    I saw genocidal wars, whole towns burnt down, and angry hungry tired desprate people on TV last night…

    my main wordpress blog showing a database error screen for the 2millonth time

    I’m over this constant Wordpress memory issue. I spent all day yesterday getting rid of plugins, optimizing the theme and making things as lean as possible… and still got an “out of memory” error while I slept.

    At this point, I may as well look into migrating this over to micro.blog and paying the premium fees because its cheaper than stepping up to the next higher tier of resources needed on my VPS to mitigate.

    I’ll admit, I’m guilty of watching Super Bowls for the commercials in addition to the actual game. My excuse: I used to have a job making TV ads.

    …will never not be the song I kick ass in when I want to shut everyone up in a karaoke setting. カラオケなら俺の一番最高セレクション。最近を聞くと新宿にあるのいつも来店に行ったバーの暖かいメモリーを出す。それと帰り道の電車の多摩川を渡す大橋とガタンガッタン音も聞いてくる。
