Water Cooler / Significant upward surge in client positions.
« on: June 01, 2020, 11:38:36 PM »
It's been 3 weeks now and every single one of my clients has had a major upswing, every single one, all in different markets.

Algaroo has reported no amazing volatility, of course we had the May core update, but up across every client, i've never had that before as a single surge.

Since they introduced the so-called rank-brain i've recorded massive swings, in comparison to pre-rank-brain ranking. Rank-brain seems aggressive in it's recalculations, it seems to be trying new things all the time, which isn't necessarily good for a fixed space like search.

Anyone else anomalously benefiting recently, sudden upswings with no extra work, across the board ?

Water Cooler / For any UK veg box delivery customers
« on: May 29, 2020, 11:29:01 PM »
I like to buy at least my root veg organic since they suck up a lot more pesticides if they aren't. For two bloody years i was buying my weekly box (15 of veg plus sometimes cheese and wine) from https://riverford.co.uk

Then i found https://www.piktfresh.com/

Same quality, significantly cheaper.

And they wash the carrots for you !

So a few of us having been doing a whatsapp video meet every saturday, 4 couples doing a quiz.

It's our turn again tomorrow (SAturday night) and i haven't gotten anything ready yet.

If anyone knows of a quick and interesting 4-team quizzy-thing i can do i'd be very grateful :)

Water Cooler / Musk's neural link.

I love tech but i can't stand this.

He's a typical break-downer of human intelligence who thinks that it's equivalent to f###ing NAND gates.

The rockets are amazing, the cars work, but our brains are not a collection of on/off switches, they're electrochemical and have wide-ranging subtlety in their interactions.

Even machine/deep-learning today, to the uninitiated it looks like intelligence, but it's just advanced pattern-matching, it doesn't 'know' what it's doing.

Too much AI fear and too many AI claims, i bet it'll be more than 10 years until we have the first implantable that can do maths for you. Nowhere in his papers or his marketing does he describe the physical I/O and the specifities of the link.

It seems his model was highly flawed, plenty of experts in software engineering that have reviewed the code are agreeing that it produces different outcomes using the same data on separate runs - not good science.

Obviously a model like this would use some sort of fuzzy logic but the disparities from run to run are huge.

Water Cooler / Drilled into my finger today!
« on: May 11, 2020, 08:17:03 PM »
Managed to plunge a 2mm drill bit into my finger today, the only pain i've had that was worse was a toothache from hell not long ago.

Unexpected yelps of pain are funny, they never sound like you! Mine sounded like a cross between a puppy and a girl!

The finger is much darker and redder to the eye, my phone seems to over saturate everything.
