It's even worse than it appears..
Today's song: Legalize It.#
The other day I was kvelling about how great ChatGPT was at finding feeds for news sites that didn't have paywalls. Until I noticed that some of the sites most definitely did have paywalls. So it's not perfect. It's a totally 1.0 kind of thing. If you don't know what that means, it might be a good time to re-read Microserfs. #
BTW, I wish ChatGPT would statically render their results pages, so I don't have to do screen shots just to quote them. Make it easier for us to promote our discoveries. It's so ridiculous that in 2023 we're still using screen shots as the way to hook networks together. #
Update: This project has the source to a bookmarklet that I used to create this static HTML version of a conversation on ChatGPT. Problem solved. It could be packaged so it's more easily used by a non-technical user. But it's very nice to have as-is. Thanks!#
  • I've been to Jamaica a couple of times and I swear I've heard people use the term "dirty shirt" as a verb. My uncle Ken who lived in Negril for years, used the term too. #
  • What it means. When someone dirty shirts you, it's as if they did something that left a stain on your shirt, something obvious and not nice that everyone can see.#
  • Example: When my cousin sell me bad ganja he dirty shirt me man.#
  • But when I searched for the term on Google, or asked ChatGPT, they offered weird and wrong ideas for what the term means. #
  • I checked in with my friend Dave Jacobs about this, he has the same understanding of what the term means, but he couldn't find our definition anywhere on the web either. #
  • At least now the correct definition will show up here on my blog. #
  • I find I'm starting to write like ChatGPT. Go figure. 😄#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
