Is anyone surprised? By definition LLM can’t be 100% correct and LLM hallucination poses significant challenges in generating accurate and reliable responses. ChatGPT Answers Programming Questions Incorrectly 52% of the Time: Study. To make matters worse, programmers in the study would often overlook the misinformation. https://gizmodo.com/chatgpt-answers-wrong-programming-openai-52-study-1851499417

Ah yes, I see it’s time for the people in shorts to kick the ball again, as hundreds of people who have seemingly lost all politeness and semblance of being human beings shout, scream, and « sing » in the streets and take up every single cm of the walkways with their cars.

I can’t wait to move so I’m no longer close to the f**king stadium. I hate football and football supporters so much, it turns into irrational anger.

@nixCraft I don't believe there's such a thing as bug-free software, not when even the biggest players like MS push code to production that breaks on leap years because they just added hours to a date instead of adding a year with the datetime lib

Revisiting code I wrote 6 months ago...

I'm equal parts horrified and impressed. How did I even make this work back then? 🤔
