    Didn't go to the ER until yesterday but turns out I had a pulmonary embolism in my lower right lung Thursday night, so that's one thing that's still got me messed up and is gonna take a good while to come back from it seems, and now this morning my partner tested positive for covid; details about isolation being difficult can be found in the covid thread. At least we got to see a Star Wars burlesque show on Saturday, which while fun was rather difficult with an undiagnosed blood clot in my lung.

    Also I didn't get that job from last week.

    Did you see Emperor Palpatine's penis? That was the best part of the show IMO

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    @Fuzzy Cumulonimbus Cloud My job involves a ton of technical writing but it is very clear to me that the technical writing serves to clarify my thinking and understanding and to enable me to make funding recommendations, and/or set sensible requirements.

    Some of the writing feels stilted and formulaic but handing it over to an LLM would be a disaster for us because bypassing the writing process would cause us to bypass *thinking*, and we would make worse decisions as a result.

    I have found chatGPT useful in trying to figure out certain technologies, like when I just needed to ask it so many questions about certain optical techniques cause I was starting from zero there and all the reviews I was reading were either too technical or skimmed over the details and focused on applications. However my role as a writer was not to summarize the technique, it was to make a recommendation about which parts of a novel program were good and feasible and which parts were risky (but ok) and risky (but bad and should be changed). An LLM might be able to make that recommendation but I don’t think we wish to let it make that recommendation and it obviously wouldn’t reflect our personal idiosyncratic priorities, which is what we are being asked as experts to bring to the table

    (relatedly NIH people have been asked not to use LLMs in reviews lol)
    Yeah most agencies I’ve seen are hard no on LLMs unless you have exception from someone sufficiently high up that it keeps people from requesting to be lazy.

    Asking a LLM a question that you don’t know the answer to is like one of those “one guard lies, one guard tells the truth” puzzles except you don’t know who’s talking.

    Once I got onto 99 on the way home, some guy decided he wanted my lane and the way to do that was drive slightly past the hood of my car and just drift over, which is a move that gets pulled on me every time I get on 99 or I5 nowadays.

    The Met Market there is where I used to cut meat! Also where I parked for the show because I still have a parking pass, haha, eat it event parking fees.

    Also @Tumin were you at the show on Saturday?

    Finally sitting down to watch Nightmare on Elm Street 3 since it came to HBO in August.

    It's such a good movie. I used to daydream about being someone known for being in 1-2 horror movies and maybe a commercial or two and that just being a footnote in a memoir.

    Weef and I have redubbed our "Spoopy Sundays" to "SAW Sundays" and for the last three weeks we've watched a Sam and Colby ghost hunter episode on youtube, and then a SAW movie.

    ngl it's a fun way to pass 2.5-3 hours on a Sunday night.

    All I remember from my time at that burlesque is that I made sure to look extra touristy and southern (this was easy as I'd been drinking since 5 and our show was at 11) and then they seated us right by the stage on that bench area to the right of it, next to a lady that came regularly (some older woman) who knew one of the performers from when she used to babysit him.

    She was delightfully plastered and we bought each other rounds and I very drunkenly told the performer playing the emcee for the evening that he was Goddamn smokin' (he was the one she used to babysit)

    I also remember the hangover the next morning, which was nothing compared to my second to last night at PAX South the year before they cancelled it, when $140 bought enough booze to make myself, my wife, and three graduating airmen vomit and then go to McDonalds upstairs.

    Apologies to Amy and Bleric for just bailing on them the following day as I ordered room service burgs.

    TL:DR AH goes hard at PAX

    Zag I think I finally got shit sorted out with the loggers. That guy 100% almost went out of business and got a lifeline. (the logger, not the Forester. That dude has a baby coming on Wednesday and brought me a push mower today, he's A+ good folk)

    The end result is I'll get somewhere between 1.5 and 2.5K back for them fucking up and running into September/October, or the logger will fuck up again before the end of August and pack his shit and we'll bring in someone else for the back half and I'll get more. (or just leave it, since I already got paid the first go-around)

    Either way your wife was right to want to not deal with it right now, but if she ever does the Forester is still a recommendation.
