oh lord to be that one OpenAI engineer that’s out there who’s about to come out of the Peruvian jungle after a weeklong ayahuasca retreat only to log on to all this
Do you have a blog? Tell me about it and I'll boost it. I'm looking for more good feeds to follow.
Is there really no way to set a timer on your iPhone and have its progress appear on your Apple Watch face? A few weeks in, I'm now used to most of the watch's other deficiencies, but this one is baffling to me.
