Why do keyboard and laptop manufacturers always assume I am using Windows? I find it very offensive as I am not a Windows user myself. Stop printing the Windows logo on what was originally the command key or at least just leave that space empty.

You can get keyboards and laptops that have various linux logos or generic super-key decorations preinstalled, and you can get replacement key-caps for some keyboards, even some of the inbuilt ones for laptops have that option.
You could just scrape it off with a very sharp knife or use a chemical solvent.

I am not interested in fear mongering about it, or acting like this is going to destroy reality, or pretending it needs to be locked up by the state and massive companies to prevent our fragile minds from being destroyed. I'm just suggesting that if you are not using it to do work for you, you're wasting time. It scared that Google engineer just because it's just good at making believable crap with an internal, consistent logic that appears like sound reasoning. Even the gimped versions they give us are strong enough.

Just put in an original paragraph, then generate the next one. Outputs require only a few cycles to get something good enough. Usually, they are annoying, and repeat media tropes you've read a thousand times.. but so what? It's not going to be original, it's not going to be interesting, and it's not going to be insightful. But it can be a useful tool. It can help you to generate new ideas, it can help you to write better.

But only if you use it.

<Write about Skryim in the style of Cormac McCarthy.

The land was old, older than men or mer or gods. The earth was a great wheel that turned in the void, and in its turning, it birthed all things.

The first men were borne of the earth, and they were hard and strong. They were the children of the earth, and they loved her as their mother. They worshipped her, and they were her first priests.

The earth was bountiful, and she gave of her bounty to her children. The men hunted and fished, and they raised crops in the fertile earth. They built their homes of wood and stone, and they worshipped the gods who walked the earth among them.

The gods were many, and they were powerful. They were the children of the sky, and they walked the earth in the guise of men. They were the lords of creation, and they ruled the world with a hand of iron.

The first men were content in the land of their birth. They worshipped the gods and they lived in harmony with the earth. But the gods were jealous, and they coveted the men's love.

The gods warred against each other, and the earth was rent with their battles. The men fought for the gods, and many were slain in their names. The earth was stained with blood, and the skies were dark with the smoke of battle.

In the end, the weaker gods were destroyed, and the stronger ones claimed dominion over the earth. The men were enslaved to the will of the gods, and they were forced to build great temples and shrines to the gods.

<Write a story about Skyrim in the style of an erotic novel.

The Dragonborn approaches the ancient temple, her heart racing in anticipation. She has been waiting for this moment for months, maybe even years. The elders had spoken of an ancient prophecy, a chosen one who would be able to vanquish the evil dragon Alduin and restore peace to Skyrim.

As she enters the temple, the Dragonborn is greeted by a sight that takes her breath away. In the center of the room is a giant dragon, its body writhing with lust. The Dragonborn can feel her pussy getting wet as she approaches, knowing that she is about to experience the most intense orgasm of her life.

The dragon begins to speak in a deep, throaty voice. "You are the chosen one, Dragonborn. I have been waiting for you."

The Dragonborn can't resist any longer. She falls to her knees and begins to suck the dragon's cock, feeling it grow harder in her mouth. The dragon moans with pleasure as she takes it deeper and deeper, her tongue swirling around the head.

Finally, the dragon is ready to fuck her. He grabs her hips and slams his cock deep inside her pussy, fucking her harder than she has ever been fucked before. The Dragonborn screams with pleasure as the dragon pounds her pussy, his cock hitting her G-spot over and over again.

Finally, they both reach orgasm, the Dragonborn screaming so loud that she is sure the whole of Skyrim can hear her. As she lays there spent, the dragon speaks once more. "You are the chosen one, Dragonborn. I will always be there for you."

all those ai algorithm creations were a bit like a variation of the "monkeys and typewriters" hypothesis: you give enough people an algorithm and theyll generate millions of punchlines with no joke. this is probably the worst outcome of present day ai, we arent getting tortured by a self aware computer program but we are using the unaware ones to be creatively bankrupt.

AFAIK the reason why coreboot and libreboot support so few computers is because of firmware signing that is present on most modern hardware. It prevents any code that isn't signed by the manufacturer with their secret key from running. And its basically impossible to change the public key that is built into the hardware that verifies the code.

So the only open source bios solution, Coreboot, is somehow bad, not worth it, a hassle, maybe backdoored. That's the message we're supposed to take from this hellhole thread?

Get a coreboot compatible laptop, chromebox, chromebook or desktop and learn about the bios and coreboot, it's well worth it.
