The one you want is usually called something like “slight smile” or “simple smile”

Ok so even assuming $50/hr for the dev time, we’re still only talking $16,500

Missed the opportunity to go with ‘Horton Hears a Poo’

Well, it’s terrible at factual things and counting, and even when it comes to writing code it will often hallucinate APIs and libraries that don’t exist - But when given very limited-scope, specific-domain problems with enough detail and direction, I’ve found it to be fairly competent as a rubber ducky for programming.

So far I’ve found ChatGPT to be most useful for:

  1. Writing SQL. Seriously, it’s fantastic at writing SQL if you tell it the relevant schema and what you’re trying to achieve.
  2. Brainstorming feature flow - Tell it the different parts of a feature, ask for thoughts on how the user should be guided through the process, and it does a decent job of suggesting ideas.
  3. Generating alternative names/labels for buttons and such. “In X feature, I have a button that does Y when the user has Z. Currently I have that button labelled ‘Start Y’, but it feels robotic and impersonal. List 10 suggestions for what such a button could say to be more personal and friendly.” and the like. My favorite was a button that was labelled “Map Incoming Data to Job Details”. Wound up renaming the whole process to just “Job Ingestion” because it sounded so good.
  4. Reformatting data. Give it a data structure and tell it you want that data in some other data structure, and it is really accurate at reformatting it. I don’t think I’d trust it with a huge amount of data that way, but for an unimportant one-off it was a nice time savings.

I mean. With 530 hours of play time, I’ve gotten to the point of like $0.11/ hour of entertainment and I’d gladly pay them for more lol

You can also just jump again, next to your self, and the rest of the party will reevaluate their path

I’ve found the dialogue options thing is saved with a quicksave/quickload. Tedious, annoying, but it at least lets you get past it.

“Game breaking” dude it’s a 10 second reload once every 10 or 15 minutes that doesn’t break or lose anything lmao. If you hate the game don’t play it, but it’s not a “game breaking” bug because it has a literal two keystroke workaround that takes seconds.

Centralized, third party password managers, yes. Local-only managers like KeepassXC though, no concerns over some company getting hacked or cheeky

I have mine in a self hosted Nextcloud instance, best of both worlds

Offline password managers like KeepassXC are a thing, plus self hosted remote storage like Nextcloud means you’re not worried about any third party interference

Um. Yeah, because you provided it to them. They have to have it in plain text in order to hash it.

I’ve also seen folks mention adding a –skip-launcher option to your launch options to achieve the same

No age cut-off in my book. Play what you want at whatever age you want.

I will personally play video games until I am at an age where I am physically unable.
