Well, that was very weird. After more than two years of being stuck at chromeos 84, my pixelbook suddenly discovered it could apply an update. Makes the machine kinda usable again.

Can the dog eat my homework?

No, the dog cannot eat your homework. Dogs are capable of eating many things, but homework is not one of them. Homework is typically made of paper, which is not easily digestible for dogs. Ingesting large amounts of paper can cause digestive issues for dogs, such as an intestinal blockage. Additionally, even if a dog were able to eat your homework, it would not understand the concept of homework or have the ability to evaluate its quality or completion. It is best to complete your homework on your own and keep it out of reach of any pets.

OpenAI chat is my new best friend.

Can you write a poem about tomatoes being better than bananas?

Sure, here's a short poem about tomatoes being better than bananas:

Tomatoes, oh tomatoes,
So plump and juicy and red,
Better than bananas,
So bland and yellow instead.

Tomatoes in salads,
Tomatoes in sauces,
Tomatoes in soups,
Tomatoes in stews.

Bananas are boring,
Just good in smoothies,
But tomatoes are bursting,
With flavor and nutrients.

So here's to the tomato,
The best fruit of them all,
Better than bananas,
And standing tall.

So what are the chances that all the "Apple is threatening to ban twitter" chatter is just make believe to lay the groundwork for claiming a huge victory next week? "The people have spoken, Apple has caved, Twitter is here to stay."

Comments of the form "this is a terrible time of year for layoffs" would be more helpful if they specified the best time of year for layoffs.

Latest round of #honk bugs fixed I think. I only hack on honk on Tuesdays now to cope with the emotional trauma of acknowledging it's not already done and perfect.

Apple putting the free back in free speech. Has anybody explained to big melon that free speech isn't forcing everybody else pay for it?

Elon Musk &3 @elonmusk Apple has mostly stopped advertising on Twitter. Do they hate free speech in America?

I can't believe they released the movie without refilming this scene! Why wasn't the director paying attention?

What's new with the Florida people?

“READY IN THREE ½ MINUTES” declares the packaging for Velveeta’s microwaveable mac and cheese cups. But that’s simply not true, according to one allegedly inconvenienced South Florida woman, who points out that the figure accounts for just the microwave time. It does not include other time-consuming steps such as tearing off the lid, adding water and stirring in cheese sauce, she argues.

Watching 1899, and I thought some of the German lines sounded off, but it turns out they were Danish.

"They must be held responsible," Fagahanpour said. "Obviously they want to affect Iran's performance against the U.S. by doing this."

What a bunch of snowflakes. Imagine being so sensitive somebody tweeting a photoshopped flag will make you bad at soccer. Instead of tattling to the officials, such disputes should be resolved in kind. Tweet back a picture of the US flag without stars to destroy their confidence or whatever.

Every time somebody says AI generated images are getting better, a bunch of randos reply no, they're not, because doctors don't wear white coats on planes. Can't wait to see your illustration of a coatless doctor so I can say, that's not a doctor, that could be anybody.

Watched Pepsi, where's my jet? Kid tries to buy harrier jet with Pepsi points.

Pro: interviews all the characters, seems like pretty thorough coverage of the saga, includes some details I didn't know.

Meh: probably too long, lots of present day stuff, and the whole human interest angle, could have been streamlined, but they really wanted to make it a miniseries.

Con: the dramatization and re-enactments detracted from believability for me. Apparently the original pitch was a based on a true story movie, but then pivoted to documentary, but left some fanciful bits in.

I can neither confirm nor deny that every phone number in the #honkstore is available to purchase on the dark web. Actually, scratch that. I officially confirm and deny it.

The Venn diagram of (everything SBF says is a lie) and (even SBF says it's true).

Of course, SBF merely the latest example of the phenomenon where people uncritically oscillate between 0% and 100% credulous. He's totally lying about everything, except when I happen to agree, and then he's a reliable expert.

Lolol, all the weird international soccer fans are saying US is 0-2-0 instead of 0-0-2 and now I hate it even more.

I regret to inform you that peta has been overrun by alien body snatchers with no familiarity of how real humans eat a turkey at thanksgiving. Never in my multi year reign as an interstate champion bird chomper have I ever seen a dude spooning gravy onto an empty plate.


PETA has lost their goddamn minds

Simultaneously asking "should it be legal for Facebook employees to use honk?" and "should it be legal for Facebook employees to not use honk?" to trap my enemies in a logical pincer.

Lolol, wut, my most recent openbsd commit was Sun Jan 26 18:05:28 MST 2020. I was pretty sure I snuck in a few in 2021.

My fediverse web ui philosophy is basically:

  • it should be easy to navigate back to the origin and see the original content
  • content on previously unvisited origins should load quickly

It's somewhat disheartening to see people build heavy weight captive portals instead.

if you've ever messed up a dimension or a hole position on something you're building, don't be too hard on yourself.

at least you're not the Cisco design engineer who caused an entire product line recall by placing the mode button (which resets the switch if held) directly above an RJ45 port.

3D drawing of a Cisco network switch indicating a design flaw. The mode button on the front of the switch is placed directly above an RJ45 port. When a cable is plugged in, the lip of the protective boot (strain relief) that covers the retaining clip on the RJ45 connector presses the button.

Is there a wiki somewhere detailing all the people SBF is and is not allowed to talk to? This information seems to be scattered across a great many internet threads. I think it would be more convenient to consolidate it one place.

Reminder that as per CoC, a honk rewrite in rust must be called husk and not hunk.

So is mastodon going to catch up with honk and add control over replies, or is it content to remain half finished?
