No newsletter, due to laziness and/or farting about with far too many other things at the weekend and really not having any time for it!

Another week without a newsletter.
Oh my god, Advent is draining me!
I haven't even made an ALChoon for this week, and am going to pretend that the "Spike Song" is this week's choon, instead, because .. Where has all the time gone!?!
Aargh!!!

I wonder how one of those AIs would do at writing a newsletter?
Thu, 22 Dec 2022, 09:26
Jayenkai
I haven't written the newsletter yet,
It's a festive tradition that I won't forget.
I save it all up for Christmas Day,
And bring you all joy in a special way.

With all that's been going on, I've really not had time to formulate the New Newsletter that I'd planned, this week.

I've got a couple of PodPicks in a small list, (is two items a list?) but other than that, I've just not really had time to sit alone, coding, with podcasts in my ears. It's been a week for family-time.
Honestly, it's just not been a good week for reconstructing the format of the thing!

At the same time, I've also reduced my YouTube watching to a bare minimum, since I'm no longer gathering content for the newsletter.
Combine all of the above, and the current newsletter template is an insanely empty shell.


I'll skip another week, and .. hopefully, come back next week with a brand new Newsletter Layout, with some nice new features.
If there's any kind of features you'd like to see in the newsletter, let me know.

... meanwhile, the week of insanity continues..!

Just take it easy. Take some YOU time. Newsletters etc. etc. can wait.

/me wonders if Jay will ever figure out that posting an explanation of why there is no newsletter -- is in itself a newsletter. *big grin*

Relax and decompress. You are dealing with a lot and it is the holidays when people are busy. Between Christmas, New Years, counting how many hogs you have, and my Birthday -- lots of holiday festivities in which to partake. Besides, Family ALWAYS comes first, no matter what!

*edit* One day in the future, for shits and giggles, you could have the AI try writing one.

Some day, perhaps, but with the current engines having year or two limits to their knowledge, they won't be able to access current forum information.

I have, however, spent the past couple of hours trying to get ChatGPT to come up with new segments that I could do weekly. .. Or maybe even something that IT could write weekly!!

Not sure it's come up with a perfect solution, yet, though I do now have an 18 book series about Greenie : The IT Technician.

Have the AI write a Haiku each week for the newsletter.
Wed, 04 Jan 2023, 15:17
Jayenkai
Haikus are too short.
They are all kind of the same.
A.I. could do more.

Are there any kinds of sdk's for chatgpt with which it can generate some content on the site every day? It might even generate polls or historic facts about gaming.

Bing is planning a chatgpt integration.

OpenAI Playground does, but it starts to get pricy pretty quick. Especially when done in real-time.
I'd have to cache something each morning, but given I still haven't got the QOTD script to work flawlessly, that's probably not ideal!

Have the AI write it. *ducks*

I tried to sign up for an account, but it will never send me the validation email.

I forgot my openai password again. Their customer service does nothing. I once got a reply weeks after sending a ticket. The send new password has never returned anything.

You.com has a chatgpt build in. But this sometimes stops working too.

OK, last week without a newsletter, promise!!!

-=-=- *asks ChatGPT for an excuse* -=-=-

Unfortunately, this week's newsletter is delayed because a flock of space penguins hijacked my computer and used it to launch a rebellion on their home planet. They refused to let me access my files until their demands for equal pay and frozen fish were met.

After negotiating with their leader, a highly intelligent penguin named Penelope, I was able to retrieve my computer. However, in the process, they accidentally opened a wormhole and sucked me into an alternate universe where time moves backwards. I spent the past few days trying to find my way back to the present, but it was difficult as everything was happening in reverse.

I managed to escape just in time for this message but, as you can imagine, I was a bit disoriented, and it took me some time to re-adapt to the flow of time. That's the reason why I couldn't send the newsletter on time. I apologize for the inconvenience.

; Hello World?


No newsletter, this week.

I've been playing Zelda all week, and .. I dunno if everyone else has, too, but the forum's been dead as a donut!
I can still see last week's newsletter in the middle of the sidebar, and we've not been in that position for a LONG time, such has been the quietness of this week.

If you have been playing Zelda all week, let us know how you're getting on with it, over in the Zelda:TotK thread.

Crikey! Adam Buxton managed to score an interview with Tom Hanks!

Just got back at programming for a bit. ChatGPT is still a bit useless at certain prompts. Asking it to create a maze using a specific algorithm(sidewinder) will not work. I had to ask it for a recursive backtracker maze which did work.

Bing chat just tells me to get *** and serves a link to a example

They released chatGPT for ios today.

Will be back on here proper in a while, it's been quite the week so I've not really had my head in the game.

And again, another week off.
My side, this time. As much activity as there's been going on on the forum, things at JNKHouse are even more hectic!
I'll get back to my regular schedule next week.
.. .. maybe..

You might not be surprised to hear that I'm still not quite in the headspace to be doing a newsletter again.
It's also been weeks since I coded a game. Good grief..
Zelda time has been enjoyed this week, though. Spinal sent me a YouTube link to him playing it the other day, and my head said "yeah, I could manage that at least.." so I ended up playing it for about 5 hours in a single day, and haven't really let up, since!

Hopefully once all this madness is over I can get my head back into gear again.
