My gaming rig is pretty much defunct, I’ve given up hope of pipmping it out this time & have finally made the move to play Elite Dangerous on Playstation :o) Tempted by the PS5 SSD and the launch of Odyssey… plus I really enjoyed having a game that I could play while watching movies. So here I am, fresh in the black, flying around in a Sidewinder! I’ve opted to…

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…
