@prologic I reckon pretty much the same like you did. I haven’t looked at this OpenAI API, in case it is simple enough, I would probably not have used their client library, though. Again, no idea if that would be feasible. I like WTFPL and even got a proper answer when trying to ask about it on your demo. ;-)

GPT3 Demo

You can tell I just “whacked” it together pretty quickly – mostly imperative, procedural style.

@prologic No doubt about that. Typing them up took me pretty much exactly an hour each. ;-) Thanks, bookmarked!

In-reply-to » Another great chat this week with @prologic. Some things we talked about: * Porting Syslinux to Go for GoNix * My shell script that generates an HTML time zone conversion table using information from a simple CSV file * The ubiquity of seq despite not being part of POSIX * Spam prevention on Yarn pods * Subreply, another alternative microblogging service

@mckinley Cool. Do you plan on writing an article on your time shell script? I was quite happy to see basically simple (in practice could be more complicated) things like this cobbled together in a short time. The script itself would also suffice, but maythere there is more to tell. :-)

In-reply-to » Probably my best attempt at “airplane in front of the moon”, yet.

@prologic This is the usual route that all planes take (if the wind comes from east), so I could sit there, watch lots of them, and hope that one will fly close to the moon. 😅 I spent about half an hour. Still depends on luck a lot.

@mckinley@mckinley.cc According to flightradar24.com, this might have been flight DLH779. If so, it was indeed an A340.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Wow! 😳 That is an amazing shot! 👌 How lucky did you have to get to snap that? I’ll bet you had to be quick? Or were you watching/waiting for the right moment and knew it would happen at some point? 🤔

Probably my best attempt at “airplane in front of the moon”, yet.

There were lots and lots of planes coming from that direction, but none of them flew right in front of the moon like the last time. 🫤 Well, maybe some other day.

In-reply-to » @prologic I found the Atom feed, but I'm worried it might be too noisy, I don't want to overwhelm my feed reader too much. Hmm...

@mckinley Good question. I’ve been fiddling with the times myself and I’m finding it hard. The one constraint I can’t seem to make work is @darch@neotxt.dk’s request so it lands on his Sunday morning instead of Saturday. Probl3m with that is I’m then up late the day before my work week (Monday) which isn’t great! 😅 I don’t mind being up late, but I’m getting too old to be up late all the time or just before work the next day 😂

Anyway, who’s coming today? I don’t mind if it’s just you and me @mckinley

Are we doing the meeting this week? I think we’re all individually being too flexible and so we can’t come up with a time.

(Paging @prologic because nobody wants to come to the meeting if he isn’t there)
