Approving follows for a little while.

My sense of humor varies from silly to espresso-black.

I believe I own 3 shirts with a brand logo. All of them are Nautica and it's the new-ish minimalist logo; two curved triangular sails.

Still they should be paying me for advertising.

I have one shirt for a business, and it's a cool T-shirt made for the owner of a family owned bodega in my neighborhood.

My politics are not all that radical, or at least they shouldn't be.

If you're involved in electronic music-making and you're not white, please DM me on here.

I've just been watching loads of footage and was aghast at how overwhelmingly white the whole thing is. I've seen more diversity at EDL marches.

So, I'm gonna try and do something about it. And the first thing is organising.

@Jyoti Is this only Fedi musicians? I know a lot of small producers who would be interested and qualify but whom I don't think I can convince to sign up for a Masto account.

@Jyoti Is there an email address they could use to contact you?

I have acquired a copy of Jerry Seinfeld's new movie, "Unfrosted" by means which puts no money in his pocket. Should I inflict myself with it and review on Fedi? (Yes, I am a masochist.)

I promise, I will be brutally honest.

@gnitro I love ripping apart shitty films, tho.

@gnitro I paid money and sat in a movie theater to write a review of this film, to give you an idea of what I've suffered through previously, haha.

@gnitro I was the only person under 70 in my theater, and got glares when the film started with a John Wayne monologue and I started cackling before I could stop myself.

They shouldn't be cheaper, the company should pay you by the hour if you're wearing a shirt with their logo in public

@stux

The shirts should be free, and we should get ad revenue for wearing them in public.

angiebaby, to Excel
@angiebaby@mas.to avatar

I have an spreadsheet that for some reason reformats every single column when refreshed or a cell on the table is double clicked. This has just started happening and it's occurring with earlier versions of the same spreadsheet that presented no problems before. I have tried everything suggested by Microsoft to get Excel to stop reformatting the columns.

Has anyone else had this problem start recently?

angiebaby,
@angiebaby@mas.to avatar

@RoyBrander I think I found out what it is. Someone here changed the formatting of the returned information when a pivot table cell was.clocked, adding a header where there previously wasn't one, which appears to break the formatting of the spreadsheet itself.

angiebaby,
@angiebaby@mas.to avatar

@zebibyte I sorted out the problem, I think. The format of the data that comes back when I click on a pivot-table cell now has a header where it didn't before. I think that's what's breaking the format of the spreadsheet itself.

@RoyBrander

I will give that a try today, thank you!

When I was a mere clerk for the 1st circuit appeals court, I wasn't allowed to have a political bumper sticker for fear of creating even the appearance of bias on the court.

How can Justice Alito be allowed to rule on Jan 6-related matters after flying a pro-insurrection flag?

@rbreich Because if you're rich and powerful in America, you can do whatever the fuck you want to the country ... EXCEPT fuck over another rich and powerful person. Same as it ever was.

Instant karma is real, and seeing it happen to one of the most deserving maggots in America is amazing.

Good morning.

That would have been hilarious.

I'm worried for my tech friends.

The vitriol, and - honestly - ignorance around LLM-based "AI" is starting to fill my feeds from normally sane and technologically literate people.

You should be able to see through the hype and misuse. LLMs aren't encyclopedias - they're tools that are able to manipulate data of various sorts in ways that are very similar to how humans do it.

Yes, I compare LLMs to human brains. It's not the same as saying they're conscious (yet) - but the way LLMs work is apparently in many ways similar to how our brains work.

One fascinating insight into that comes from research done on what happens to the ability of LLMs to recall information as they are exposed to large and larger corpuses. Apparently they're better at recalling the early and late information, whilst starting to lose some in the middle.

In human psychology we call that the primacy and recency effect - because our brains do the same.

LLMs are absolutely awesome for a wide variety of tasks (and we have by no means found them all). Every second you spend not understanding this is a second on the way to your own irrelevance (if these tools would aid someone in your chosen area of work) or to become a grumpy old person yelling at clouds.

I had honestly forgotten about the "Super Size" era at Micky D'Souza. Tell your kids about that shit lol.

I've got a little mom and pop hole in the wall pizza restaurant that also does a burger special - a large cheeseburger, fries and a can of soda for $6. And it's superior to any chain around here.

Oh, I loved Kids in the Hall! I have the first two seasons on DVD.

Another favorite was Upright Citizens Brigade.
