Happy birthday to my wonderful wife! Hope you enjoy your day.
Bix has referenced The Weblog Handbook by Rebecca Blood on a number of occasions, and Jay mentioned that he was reading it. So, I thought it was about time I got a copy and found one second hand online.
With the book being first published in 2002 it will be interesting to see what holds true today and where things have diverged from the original idea of what blogs were.
The landscape has obviously changed since then but, yeah, I am curious as to what it can still offer twenty years later.
After trying to work out some code and getting a mixed bag of results from various searches, I decided to see what all the fuss was about and try ChatGPT.
A couple of questions gave code examples that I could modify slightly to fit my requirements and achieve the results I needed. Great!
Then, I thought about asking something a little more obscure:
I wonder if 'vanity chats' will become the new vanity searches?
@colinwalker I asked it to tell me how Michael Zornek got into programming, and it got some stuff right, and some stuff just made up. eg: it said I owned a Commodore 64, which I never did.
The real problem is the tone of authority it has, no matter if the response is correct or not. It's a real BS artist.
@colinwalker I’ve heard this book referenced on several occasions before. Must be some general insights there.
