👽 Paul Webb Oh wow, my account still works. What's up people?
🏒 Lucian Marin Mastodon is going really well (lapcatsoftware.com...), actually not. Twitter doesn't have third party apps anymore.
👽 Paul Webb What a mess. I'm using Mastodon via Ivory (same devs from Tweetbot) and it's a wonderful experience.
😀 Tom In an international airport surrounded by snow, and I'm the only one in shorts.
♦️ Robert Blinov Your body has good thermoregulation!
🏒 Lucian Marin Apple should keep Intel based Macs on their lineup. 13th gen processors are amazing.

🥨 Stephen Niedzielski ♣️♦️ Super Patience is now live! It's only pixelated solitaire, but it's the first game I've finished using my own engine. Play at superpatience.com! ♥️♠️
👽 Paul Webb This is very well done. I've never been used to Solitaire with 3 cards but I'm enjoying this and the aesthetic you've created. EDIT: I've yet to win.

🤚🏻 Vivek Why is JavaScript so frustrating?
♦️ Robert Blinov Because it shouldn't exist.
🧑‍💻 Mustafa Gedik What are these(still exploring)
🏒 Lucian Marin That is a thread and this is a reply.

🏒 Lucian Marin I fixed the issue. Thanks!
😀 Tom Read a book in one day, today. I hadn't done that in over 20 years. This one was a Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child.
🤚🏻 Vivek How was it?
♦️ Robert Blinov I read Mark Twain's "What is man?" in a day today. 10/10: monadnock.net/twai...
Zero Edge GPT is like a TI-83 calculator.. You can get a TI-83 to do a lot of stupid things (by installing apps), but most people just use it for the calculator.. Don't overthink it. Its a tool not God.

🏒 Lucian Marin GPT is worth more than all blockchains combined.
♦️ Robert Blinov Life hack: own just one plate, bowl, mug, glass, tablespoon, and teaspoon to never procrastinate on washing them.
🏒 Lucian Marin I started doing this a few weeks ago. It works. I have another one, use Google Sheets to take notes or build to do lists.
🏒 Lucian Marin ChatGPT is like searching the web without going from website to website looking for answers. It's black box thinking. Everyone will get the same answer limiting the creativity of the solutions.
Zero Edge It is so much more convenient than a search engine.. I can question its reply and ask for it to extrapolate on a topic it mentioned.. As opposed to Search engine -> website -> I want more info -> search engine -> website -> repeat.. Search engines all of a sudden feel dated.. Probably why Google is at code red. Also someone has already implemented this into a search engine so you can get live results: you.com
😀 Tom I have a Pixel 5, and the battery appears to be expanding. I'll probably also look into battery replacement and just keep the device as a backup.
🏒 Lucian Marin I have a Pixel 5 as well. Last summer it costed me 275 euros to replace the screen. I'm waiting for Pixel 7a, 8 or 8a to replace it.
🤚🏻 Vivek Lucian, you need to market Subreply well because I think it has the potential to be a good alternative to Twitter.
😀 Tom I just use Subreply on my phone, and the user interface is more confusing that Twitter's. Subreply could have had a chance if Lucian changed it a while back when it was brought up by several users, but Lucian liked the way it was. I am curious if Subreply could scale though. I think the ship has sailed to Mastadon instances. At this point, Subreply would have to do something that Mastadon does not deliver on, that people want.
🤔 Eamonn Mchugh-roohr Jenkins apparently has no way to stop running builds. They should have named it Casey Jones...
🏒 Lucian Marin It's possible that your user doesn't have the rights assigned to it to stop or cancel builds.

♦️ Robert Blinov Set on avoiding Apple telemetry, I wiped my 2017 Touch Bar-free 13'' MacBook Pro and installed Artix Linux on it. The notebook performed well on macOS, yet Linux managed to give it a boost: it never heated up and thus its fans never ran, while the battery lasted longer and charged faster. However, there was a catch: no audio. I spent weeks scouring for a solution and applying found patches, all to no avail. I then began to program a solution myself, only to realise that it was not a worthwhile task. macOS returns, for now.
♟️ Nathan Unfortunately, I have made similar experiences with Linux and audio management (also Bluetooth devices). Which made me consider: how is Robert Blinov going to respond to e4?
