Hi, I’m Chris

I make websites and things. Lately, I’ve been experimenting a lot with Large Language Models (colloquially known as AI) to test their capabilities and to help make my job and D&D Dungeon Mastering life easier. Feel free to click around to learn more about stuff I like to do and/or am working on.

  • amarok rocks my world. cedega, not so much.

    i like amaroK. i think cedega is overrated. [more=there’s a lot more posted behind this link, but it’s kinda geeky, so be forewarned…there’s pretty screenshots tho.] the good: amaroK amaroK is a multimedia player (altho, thus far i’ve only used it for music). it works much the same way my ampache-powered page does. you create…

  • crocodile hunter dies is “freak accident”!!

    erin, my source of news from the outside world, tells me the crocodile hunter died. ………..why does this come as no suprise? my only question is how he managed to stay alive this long. seriously, when you poke a lion 28 times in the ass shouting in your obnoxious australian accent “‘ey, kids, dunna try…

  • series of tubes

    ok. apprently i’m behind the times. apparently, it’s already old news that the internet is a series of tubes. my lack of knowledge of the series of tubes phenomenon can only be explained by positing that those tubes got clogged and my personal internet did not arrive until this morning. that’s right ladies and gentlemen,…

  • sid and nancy: do you feel like you’ve been cheated?

    this was one of those movies that you’re *supposed* to watch if you are hip to pop culture and/or punk. it’s the story of sid vicious and his horrible, drug addict g/f. it’s so over-the-top with everything that it’s confusing and boring and makes a joke out of punk rock. velvet goldmine, which had a…

  • new releases: ani difranco, sigur ros

    this sounds interesting: Comets On FireAvatarSub Pop allmusic.com:Comets On Fire move a step further into the deep garage psychedelic mindset with Avatar. The guitar freakouts are all there, but the songs are more pronounced and more focused.
