How does ChatGTP’s super-mega-advanced-4o version pronounce the “Orioles”? Usually the voices get it right the first time but then they revert randomly to pronouncing it as Or-eye-ols. I’m so happy we are thrashing the planet and burning through energy for this amazing tech.

It’s not just Google that is pulling dog crap out of Reddit. Kagi is doing the same thing. Is Kagi using Gemini?

People, LinkedIn is not the place to post your wild conspiracy theories about the Church, the media, or Biden.

Fun stroll around a lake in the middle of the burbs. Such a nice neighborhood with lots of different types of people walking about.

★★★★★ Finished reading: Piranesi by Susanna Clarke 📚

A beautifully told story with haunting imagery that will stay with me for a long time.

Lovely evening for a walk with the wife. It was one of those walks when we didn’t say a single word to each other, but instead enjoyed each other’s presence comfortably.

Looking forward to watching the micro.camp videos! I really wanted to watch it live but my real job got in the way.

Watched: The Marvels ★★★1/2

I enjoyed this more than I expected. I actually enjoyed the camaraderie of the main characters, even if the story was fairly weak overall.

Thank you Baltimore for another disappointment. A terrific solar storm and we get clouds all night long.

I hate the way my head feels when I get a sinus cold. It makes me so sleepy 😴

The past two days of weather here in MD were torturous after a week of lovely warm weather.

Bad Batch ending was very satisfying. Loved the series. Review/thoughts coming soon.

I’ve been going 100mph for the last few weeks! It got bad this week and I missed posting some photos at the end of the challenge. Things are slowing down a bit now and I’m looking forward to actually watching a movie soon.

Drove up to PA to take my son and his friends out for his 21st birthday. The traffic in the Baltimore area wasn’t greatt before, but the bridge collapse has made the problem much worse. This is going to be bad…

A small tan dog wearing a blue hoodie sits on a leopard print surface, looking to the side with its tongue slightly out.

Missed a couple of days of the challenge…but here is our critter. She’s getting older and needing more attention from the vet. Still adorable.

I used Anthropic’s Claude today for the first time and it flat out invented quotes from Pope Benedict XVI. When I asked it for references, it apologized and said that was a summary of a statement he made but could not say where from. All of the links it referenced were old and none of them worked. Artificial, yes. Intelligence? 🤷🏽

It’s not going to happen, but I would love an iPad Mini with an OLED screen.

A silhouette of a person stands with arms outstretched in a fog-filled room illuminated by blue light, creating an ethereal atmosphere.

A large stone sculpture of a man with folded arms emerges from a solid block, with visitors around it. Engraved text reads: “OUT OF THE MOUNTAIN OF DESPAIR, A STONE OF HOPE.”

This is one of my favorite monuments in DC. The quote says “OUT OF THE MOUNTAIN OF DESPAIR, A STONE OF HOPE”

What is the protocol for waiting in the ER for someone? Can I ask others why they’re waiting?

An amber-colored drink with ice in a glass stemware, straw inserted, resting on a blue surface. Twinkle lights and a palm in the blurred background suggest an outdoor evening setting.

This is the only kind of ice I want to see for a loooong time.

A boy in a yellow jacket eagerly bites into a cream-filled cupcake, sitting against a floral-patterned background. The phrase “keep calm” is partially visible on his shirt.

He could never get enough birthday cupcakes
