There Are No Kings in Rome

There Are No Kings in Rome I have been utterly aghast at the discourse in the media over the last two years in regards to Trump. The assumption - in all media, by the way - is that Trump would be able to pardon himself if he became the President. Do people actually hear themselves saying this? Do people understand what they are saying? Have all of our history and social studies classes taught the entire population literally nothing about this concept?...

ChatGPT Dungeons & Dragons

ChatGPT Dungeons & Dragons As a fun little experiment last night, I had ChatGPT write out a little Dungeons and Dragons adventure. From what I learned: You can get ChatGPT to be really specific and detailed. There are a few tricks which my repeated attempts have taught me: You have to be really specific and detailed in your query. You can make it a very long sentence. I’ll post mine below so that you can see....

Fixed the Blog Again

I fixed the blog again I had this weird setup with github using two repos - one public and one private. I still don’t understand how I set it up this way but I was following instructions from a tutorial which had it set up like that. When I tried to remove the setup, it of course borked everything up. I gave up for a bit in frustration because it wasn’t a priority for me and I knew I’d have to sit down and re-up everything and set everything up from scratch to a new repo....

New Mastodon - Qoto.org

New Mastodon I migrated from the Mastodon server emacs.ch to qoto.org. I still love emacs.ch but qoto has some more benefits, such as a 65,535 char post limit and a few other things. That’s huge. That’s enormous, in fact. It’s also a STEM-based instance, so there’s still some interesting things going on. So my new Mastodon is @natharari@qoto.org. Also: I really ought to update this blog more often. I don’t know why I don’t....

Computer Literacy

Computer Literacy I’m going to say something completely impolitic, but I don’t really care at this point about appearances: I just have the feeling that most people are too stupid to actually figure out how easy #Mastodon is to use because of: Choice and Unfamiliarity I remember when the internet was in its heyday (I was on it back in 1989 actually - but that’s another story) and we had such high hopes for humanity learning, growing, and communicating together....

Mastodon I’m on Mastodon (links above) at Counter Social, and more and more at @natharari@emacs.ch. I’m going to delete my Twitter soon or deactivate it if possible, as I have no confidence in that medium whatsoever. More and more people are leaving and I’m happy to say that I’m one of them. Even though I didn’t use the site for the last few years, I just want no part of that disaster area....

warp terminal I’ve recently come across warp - a new terminal application currently for Mac only and in beta. Apparently they are working on a Linux and Windows release as well. It’s pretty fantastic. It’s incredibly fast and very modern, written in Rust, and can do things no other terminal can do that I’ve ever seen. As a long time user of iTerm, it includes some functions which iTerm currently does not have....

What were the 70s...

“What were the 70s and early 80s really like?” They were dark, very contrasty, and grainy with lots of muted colours.

Nintendo Egg Game

Nintendo Egg Game

A blast from the past I was cleaning out some more things today and I found this gem. It’s from the early 80s and I must have spent countless hours with my brother and even my parents playing this little game. I looked online and they actually sell for quite a bit of money so I may actually end up selling it. I honestly have no intention of ever playing it again, but it was nice to see it again and yes, it does work....
