Still here

05/08/2021

Yesterday I wrote an extensive post on one pf PSN’s free games this month (May 21) Wreckfest… I also tried to update my websites php version, & OS This however failed, and I had to resort to a backup before sleep. However today is a new day, OS updated… not sure about php version; but eh, everything is working… for now 🙂 I’ll one day soon re-write my review of…

This weekend I picked up Dishonoured 2 on the PS4 for 7 bucks… even though the bargain price it might be a game that doesn’t stay long in my recent played list as I returned it for a refund / swap last time. So while installing D2, this time on the PS5, I read that the DLC had to be claimed by the 11/11/2018… bugger Then while loading I found…

This song composed by GPT-2, trained on The Beetles back catalogue lyrics, inspired by the opening lines of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody: Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? This feels like there could be 2 songs here, but I’m leaving them together in recognition of the different sections of Bohemian Rhapsody 🙂 Really impressed with how this generates a chorus. you wake up in a daze. What have…

Here we go, never before heard songs by The Beatles… written not by Paul & John, but an AI algorythm (see what I did there) 🙂 Data grabbed from here: Beatles lyrics and the words they used most Here’s the first song, inspired by the last question addressed the the William Gibson model; Who is Voytek? The song is named Heiress, although think it will go by the name of…

After a couple of conversations with different mates over the weekend I was motivated to dust off my old GPT-2 scripts and play a little more. Libraries have changed in the near 2 years since I fist dabbled, but by tweaking the requirements I managed to get the AI creative juices flowing again. Finally I made my way to bed last night, treating myself to one last search before bed…

Cyberpunk 2077 crashes were a pain, it meant reload time in a close to seamless open World As a big fan of the original paper based RPG as a teen, no surprise that I enjoyed Cyberpunk 2077 I started writing this post on the 11th Jan, it’s now a month and a big quality patch later I’ve finished off nearly every one of the side quests, completed just about every…

PS5 launched

11/15/2020

And I was so stoked to pick up a PS5 on launch day, all down to a favour from a friend, as I’d not considered acquiring one until 2 days before 🙂 First impressions of PS5 * it’s huge, like PC size * it’s glaring white, and has what seems like a fragile flexy covering * it’s fast, at eveything * it’s quiet, I’ve been use to the PS4 fan…

Games I’ve been playing post lockdown: * Ghost of Tsushima – the multiplayer options are varied and deep – I screwed up my saves while scoring Platinum, so I can’t start NG+ until I complete it again * Start Wars Squadrons – returned this to EA Games within a week – lack of depth, really underwhelming * Doom Eternal – so tough – not played a game that gets my…

There’s been a long history of some bots trying to access this blog by trying to access the root & admin accounts & guessing the password, not sure why? This has caused frequent lock outs & even messing up the back end database, preventing the site from loading. It’s not been a real big issue as I’ve simply restored the backup, simples 🙂 The last solution that I’ve applied seems…

I’ve been having a on and off issues with my PS4 ejecting disks while playing, and even from standby. It’s been little of an issue, although in-turn it has been a catalyst to me pulling the power cord from the rear of the console to keep it powered down. This in turn has lead to the screen that I’m sure you all know well, warning that closing of the console…
