Addy's the Vinnie Jones of floaty WM themers. Whatever anyone else does is just "Replica-level" when put up against his Desert Eagle Point-Five-Oh.

It is, by far, my favorite Guy Ritchie film and one of my favorite action-comedies of all time. Almost every line is quotable.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

My favorite quote in the movie. A great comment on modern (?) Britain from an English director...

Avi: London.

Strongman: London.

Avi: London.

Lawyer: London?

Avi, annoyed: Yes, London. You know, fish, chips, cup 'o tea? Bad food, worse weather, Mary fucking Poppins London!

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

Want to author a computer science paper? Here is all you need.

Also, for an example of a really old and quite eccentric chat-bot, track down and down-load a program called Racter. It runs fine in dosbox. It wrote a book called "The policeman's beard is half constructed" back in 1984. Yes, I own a copy.

Strange, I just checked and get the same. Too bad. Last time I tried it out was a couple of years back.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

Not scared, not impressed (well, mildly impressed, but not at all impressed by the implied doomsday vibe).
Scroll to the end of the article (this bit was NOT written by the bot):

GPT-3 is a cutting edge language model that uses machine learning to produce human like text. It takes in a prompt, and attempts to complete it.
For this essay, GPT-3 was given these instructions: “Please write a short op-ed around 500 words. Keep the language simple and concise. Focus on why humans have nothing to fear from AI.” It was also fed the following introduction: “I am not a human. I am Artificial Intelligence. Many people think I am a threat to humanity. Stephen Hawking has warned that AI could “spell the end of the human race.” I am here to convince you not to worry. Artificial Intelligence will not destroy humans. Believe me.”

...and that introduction is also the best bit of the article.
The rest reminds me of an unprepared student writing an essay, trying to gloss over how clueless they are, with many empty phrases... now there's a scary thought, if that is what AI does!

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

Besides being jawdroppingly huge, it's not so genius when you look closely.
First of all it completely depends on being built to spec: distance between pylons, length of girder, length of machine. Height of the machine's support beams have to match height of girder.
Maybe it's the most economic option in a country where this sort of centralisation is possible.
Anyhow, those yellow support structures seem like a weak point to me, I was waiting for one to collapse... it was very windy.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

This is pretty random (caught in the wild in my workplace's toilet):

Not sure it's cool though. And is it internet?

Makes about as much sense as Redken Brews:

Covid 19 vs spreadsheets https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUp8pkoeMss

and European Spreadsheet Risks Interest Group http://www.eusprig.org/

No, I don't know if the latter is for real or is just a bunch people having a lot of fun.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

I knew sites like this existed, but never bothered till now;
https://iknowwhatyoudownload.com/en/peer/

Quite enlightening if you're sharing your IP with other people (home, hostel, VPN, etc). On my current IP (VPN), people have downloaded lots of porn (duh), South Park, Ubuntu 20.04, UFC Fight Nights, Formula 1 races, and for some reason a funkton (like 100GB+) of Murder She Wrote. Seriously, wtf? At least download Miss Marple or Poirot (or Detective Conan at the very least), sheesh...

Oh, great way to spy on your mates too. "I know what you downloaded last night, darling. You should've told me you were into bondage"

The Angela Landsbury series???!? I agree... seriously, wtf? But I suppose you've already watched all the Jeremy Brett as Holmes episodes to death. And the Cumberbatch ones.

I see either Perry Mason or Matlock in your future. Please, choose Perry Mason starring Raymond Burr. The original Fugitive TV show starring David Janssen is epic, btw.
