Spending a bit of time today creating a node.js API on top of OpenAI’s SDK. I have a feeling many API’s in the future will be getting a serious β€œshot in the arm” from ChatGPT.


ChatGPT in an iOS Shortcut β€” Worlds Smartest HomeKit Voice Assistant

I suspect it won’t be long before ChatGPT and others are deeply integrated into mainstream virtual assistants.

Reading this, makes realize how β€œdumb” they currently are.


I’ve realized that crypto makes me unhappy regardless if it’s going up or down.

Going down? Why did I ever put any resources into this stupid thing?

Going up? Why didn’t I put more resources into this stupid thing?

When I was a young kid in youth group, I convinced my mom that Blink 182 was a Christian band because the song Anthem Part Two said β€œhelp me Jesus”.

So, it looks like @paul@tapbots.social has confirmed that Twitter is shutting down API keys for 3rd party apps.

In addition to this change, they have completely removed the ability to sort the timeline chronologically. That was the only feature that made Twitter somewhat usable.

In light of these changes, I have finally begun the process of downloading my archived Twitter data and moving off for good.

It bugs me to no end that the NM Taxpayer Access Point uses the word logon instead of login. I picture the site being run by a cranky old pony-tailed β€œwebmaster” that has chosen to die on the logon hill.

The end of the high school essay-Seth’s Blog

They were actually a signal that you could do just enough work to persuade an overwhelmed teacher that you were compliant.

My son turned in a GPT3 essay last year for his Media Literacy class. It totally proved he was media literate.


Building a website like it’s 1999… in 2022 - localghost

The creativity and flair of the late 90s and early 2000s. Back then, there were no rules – you put whatever you wanted on a webpage, because it was your space to do as you please.

Fun read. Lots of nostalgia.

Voicemails From A Spammer would be a sweet name for an album.


I switched from weight lifting to calisthenics in the gym over a year ago. It was one of the best decisions ever.

A year in, and I still get excited to go every single time.

It feels like I’m a kid again getting to play on the playground at recess. 🀸

My Current AeroPress Recipe β˜•οΈ

Inverted Aeropress

Over the years, I have tried many Aeropress methods for making coffee. After many variations, I have found this one to be the best and most consistent.



Start heating the water in a kettle. While the water is heating, grind 30g of coffee in the grinder and pour it into the inverted Aeropress.

Place the Aeropress on the scale, pour in 100g of water, and stir. Once stirred, set a timer for 60s. Take this time to place the paper filter inside the Aeropress’ lid and rinse the paper. It ensures that it sticks better and removes some of the paper taste.

After the timer is up, stir one more time, attach the filter, and plunge into your cup.

Finally, pour another 100g of water into the cup and enjoy one of the best cups of coffee of your life.

Let me know if you end up trying it!

I have a terrible habit of biting my nails while I’m coding. I literally don’t do it in any other context.
