I've been previewing the new @OpenAI API, and honestly despite myself I was a bit nervous when I typed "go ahead and try it." It's that good.

Wow! I just clicked the Windows Troubleshooter and it actually solved my problem, for what I'm pretty sure is the absolute first time in my life.

in 2002 you would buy the highest end servers and link them with fancy cables so they could pretend to be one really, really powerful server with hundreds of processors

in 2020 you buy the highest end servers and install software so they can pretend to be hundreds of servers with one processor

Today was a productive day of staring at hex dumps. I'm delighted to be using my reverse engineering skills for the greater good.

Very excited about this! I've loved my Gemini from Planet Computers; its two major drawbacks are (1) terrible back camera and (2) hard to use with one hand. Looks like their next project, the Astro, will solve these without compromising its wonderful 100wpm+ keyboard.

There's a word that (I now realize) I was missing from my lexicon and I needed it without realizing it. The word is "Doomsurfing". nytimes.com/2020/03/20/automob

today we're launching the campaign for the Keyboardio Atreus, the ultraportable ergonomic mechanical keyboard!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/keyboardio/atreus

I've been selling these as DIY #mechanicalkeyboard kits for over 5 years, but now working together with @obra we're able to offer a fully-assembled version at a significantly lower price; check it out!

This guy suggests a possible 15x profit on $1.5B, not too shabby: themarketear.com/posts/crw3IE9
Though he assumes a 10% downside hedge, and the article seemed to suggest 5%.

Golang is unusual because in most languages the type system tells you when you made a mistake, but in Golang the type system tells you when Rob Pike made a mistake.

Yes, of course I want a rotary cell phone.

The power switch is an actual slide switch. No holding down a stupid button to make it turn off and not being sure it really is turning off or what. justine-haupt.com/rotarycellph
