I'm now operating three bots on Mastodon:

Launch Radar Bot - @launchradar

Western Quakes Bot - @westquake

Japan Quake Bot - @japanquake

The photo reminds me, conceptually, of a scene in the excellent film Local Hero (1983). In the movie our hero, Mac (Peter Riegert), has to make regular reports to his boss (Burt Lancaster) in Houston, particularly if he sees anything interesting in the night sky. Mac's only means of communication is the public telephone box.

If you haven't seen Local Hero, you really should. Highly recommended.

Walking down the street carrying a piece of wood with some nails pounded through it, when someone called me Tom Cruise.

Weird day.

Zoom in to Jupiter's clouds with our @NASAJuno mission! Take a closer look at this image taken by our spacecraft as it flew just 3,200 miles (5,200 km) from the giant planet's northern latitudes:

You MUST play AI Dungeon 2, a text adventure game run by a neural net.

@nickwalton00 built it using @OpenAI's huge GPT-2-1.5B model, and it will respond reasonably to just about anything you try. Such as eating the moon.

Since all the responses are generated on the fly by a neural net, your problem solving options aren't limited to what the game's programmers could imagine.

"Asking nicely" works pleasingly often.

@retrocomputing is great, and so is #retrocomputing - use them both! And don't forget to sign up at
too. You'll be in excellent company.
