So something rather strange, although positive, has occurred this week; my Raspberry Pi hosted Python scripts are still sending out around 550 tweets each day, but the tweets are now receiving twice the number of twitter impressions πŸ™‚ As you can see from the chart, impressions have approximately doubled, from ~100 to ~200 thousand each day. This increases the last 28 days to 2.5 million organic impressions! I work with…

I picked this up What Remains of Edith Finch as one of the monthly games on the PlayStation Network for the PS4, and it’s been sat on my nav bar downloaded for a while. After reading a post on r/patientgamers the other day selling the story I thought I’d give it a try. I found it profound to say the least, but a fabulous medium to tell a story. I…

EIGHT DRAGONS is an old-school side-scrolling fighting game that takes the classic beat-’em-up action from the eighties and pushes the gameplay and story to a whole new level! There are two ways to play EIGHT DRAGONS – first as a straightforward arcade game.

Spider-Man Odyssey

04/09/2019

Recently picked up 2 new games for the PS4, Marvel’s Spider-Man and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. I’ve had my eye on both for a while, and as the digital copies are on offer for Easter I thought I’d treat myself. I actually messed up, accidentally purchasing Marvel’s Spider-Man Deluxe Edition while trying to remove it from the digital cart… yeah my wife didn’t believe me either πŸ™‚ Sony refunded the cash…

Thought I’d ask the Trump Tweets Fine Tuning model a few questions πŸ™‚ All results un-edited Model prompt >>> build a wall to protect against new Mexican people breaking into our country! Wall at our Southern Border is being built by contractors @AgComm Partners & is expected to cost a fortune. So many red tape checks and approvals necessary to build a wall (not an easy task). In January our…

This gives me over 25k lines to fine tune a model on! It’s currently running and producing some interesting examples, and I can’t honestly tell if they are real or not??? Here are a few examples for now: I know plenty…

Against my better judgement given issues with past pre-releases I’ve been running Ubuntu’s Budgie 19.04 Dicso Dingo Beta… & it’s awesome πŸ™‚ Everything working after an update using the terminal from Ubuntu 18.10. It seems slicker than usual, assuming this is due to the Memory and CPU optimisations featured in this update. I also like the new look and feel of the file manager. If you’d like to give it…
