some people were last month years old when they found out that they were just using bing (by degrees)

@Mojeek It was nice to see the penny drop. So many people argued with me about this, as you might recall. Bet they werenʼt laughing then!

@nf3xn Democracy and basic human intelligence … seems trendy to be a denier and that it’s actually countercultural and nonconformist to look at facts now.

If you think most of these fonts typified the 1990s, then you weren’t around in the 1990s.

After over a decade, all my student loans are finally paid off! Hard to believe. All of the money from my workshops, books, etc went into that and now they're done 🥳🎉🥂

But seriously I want that money back

@AbandonedAmerica Congratulations, my friend! Thatʼs a heck of an achievement.

@billbennett My partner tried one of those to see if it could do an image of a normal, size 14–16 woman. Nope.

These AI SEO spam operations have used lists of common searches to ensure that their pages come up first in searches in the “long fat tail” the kind of search where it used to be about 50/50 if you’d find a page addressing your needs. But, it used to be if you found something like “The top 15 smallest ants in the world” it wouldn’t be nonsense. It’d either exist and be the work of another person who cared OR you found nothing. Not so now! I can’t possibly over-stress how bad this is! 1/

@futurebird Plus, those lists are bogus sometimes. My name has been on one for the last five months, linked to Google and SEO. This is BS, but it hasnʼt stopped hundreds of people writing misinformation about me, just so they think they are pleasing Google. Then there are new idiots who join in (at least one a day) and their LLMs then reference the earlier junk. Real GIGO. Medium and Quora have deleted the posts there, but Linkedin says misinformation is OK.

@unnameduser It was probably the last time a mainstream manufacturer there tried to do something different, though the niche players kept trying cool things, e.g. the McLaren F1. And maybe the 1980 Austin Mini Metro would count as sufficiently different, too. It might not look that unusual today, but I still remember what a big deal it was then.

It took an hour to read just the replies to my photo-post from yesterday, and I still don't have the time to reply to all of you. So sorry.

Time to get ready for the drive.

Thank you ALL for the good wishes. I love reading every post.

Off to Oregon. I'll post alerts as they come in, when I can.

@GottaLaff Happy trails! May it be a safe and fun journey!

Company posts about me. Company continues to post misinformation about me after I tell them what they wrote was false. Here is the consequence.

@msquebanh At least one a day! They all believe this search engine program called Semrush. Iʼve alerted Semrush, to no avail, so five months on I continue to do this.

@msquebanh Thank you, my friend!

Finding it bizarre how anyone can defend bigotry and racism—or ask that someone not call it out or discuss something that happened to them. This is precisely what gets us into a mess over race relations in this country: fragile egos.

No 1 News Midday, but hey, we can watch Deal or No Deal Australia.

@strypey Correct. I just want to turn on the TV. Even now itʼs a hassle getting the foreign ones other than Aljazeera English.

jackyan,
@jackyan@mastodon.social avatar

@strypey The problem is both. If they made it, Iʼd watch it, which was the original point. Iʼm sure you were alive when this was what everyone did, so this isnʼt exactly a stretch of the imagination. Call me lazy.

jackyan,
@jackyan@mastodon.social avatar

@strypey It did a bit mate! I donʼt want effort. My thinking probably is: if itʼs a show Iʼm really into, I donʼt mind investing the time into finding it. But the news isnʼt like that for me. I want the least effort, turn on the TV, and itʼs there. Once I have to hunt for it, then itʼs no longer relaxing viewing.

jackyan,
@jackyan@mastodon.social avatar

@strypey This is why I said, 'Iʼm sure you were alive,' rather than, 'Before you were born'. 🌝

jackyan,
@jackyan@mastodon.social avatar

@strypey All good, I think we were both misinterpreting the other and I apologize for my part!
