DALL-E versus Poser Image Generation, Both Have Their Place

[Fair warning - I'm cheap, my website is slow and this is very picture intensive. It will load slowly] When I started Opinionbypen.com, I quickly learned that people wanted pictures. There’s a number of photo sites out there but between usage rights and finding the...

Why Is ChatGBT So Angry? It’s Only A Reflection Of Ourselves

This week I’ve been subjected to an overwhelming amount of drivel on the ChatBot being developed by Microsoft and ChatGPT. I’m not surprised, today’s reporters think research is searching a key word on Twitter. Real reporters have all but disappeared. Still, some of...

Bringing It Altogether – An Engineer Attempts To Justify His Toys

Readers of my blog have been subjected to reviews on three different 3D printers, a CNC wood carver, a laser etcher and a host of solar projects. By now most of you have asked yourselves why is he doing all of this? The same is true of my wife. She eyes each new...

  • A Look At Class Action Suits Using the Google+ SettlementA Look At Class Action Suits Using the Google+ Settlement
    When my sister asked me to write a post on class action suits, I greeted it with all the enthusiasm shown to managers showing up at the last minute asking for a white paper, before close of business. Never mind that the need has been languishing on their desk for the last two weeks. Still, […]
  • Journalism?Journalism?
    I’m a little busy this week trying to finish my Udacity course and even though it doesn’t matter, I still want to get a good grade. With that in mind, I asked a friend to contribute and he was happy to help out. ___________________ The exposure and allure of journalism has drawn many people to […]
  • A Look Back at Some of My Favorite PostsA Look Back at Some of My Favorite Posts
    Each post I write is a snapshot in time. Sometimes I go back to correct them or add a little more information but I’ve learned that I always need to continue looking forward. Rewriting my old posts, as much as they might need it, doesn’t give me time to write new posts.  I added the […]

  • Synergy And A New BeginningSynergy And A New Beginning
    Synergy is a great word that’s become a victim of its own sexiness. A few years ago it seemed to be an unwritten rule that this word must be used in corporate mission statements everywhere. I sure you’ve seen statements like “Utilizing the synergy of our multiple sites we will increase profit and sales” or […]
  • What Happened To Rewarding Customer LoyaltyWhat Happened To Rewarding Customer Loyalty
    After almost ten years with Sprint, my wife and I changed our cell service to Verizon. There were a number of reasons but the number one factor was cost. In this case Verizon was offering $150 credit per line that I added and the monthly fee, with two new Galaxy S5s, was slightly less than […]
  • The New Chair, An Engineer’s Journey In Buying A New ChairThe New Chair, An Engineer’s Journey In Buying A New Chair
    Last week the bracket securing the arm of my gaming/ current office chair broke.  I’ll admit I’ve put on a few pounds during my Covid isolation and I never intended it to sub as a full-time office chair. Still, I haven’t gained that much weight and the chair was less than a year old.  One […]

  • Nothing Personal But I Don’t Trust Your EmailNothing Personal But I Don’t Trust Your Email
    The idea for this post started with an email from a friend asking me if I had ever been an attorney and this link, http://abovethelaw.com/2013/02/inside-straight-assuming-that-people-are-idiots/. That’s two strikes against it right there, I dislike attorneys and I don’t like blind links. What swayed me to read this was the relationship I have with my friend, […]

    There are times when you don’t feel like writing. This week, I’m trying to beat the rain and finish the new chicken coop for my wife. When I asked for volunteers to write, Ronin was the only one to speak up. Here’s hoping you like it. What it takes to be a winner Ronin Ever wonder […]
  • Poser Debut, an Engineer’s ReviewPoser Debut, an Engineer’s Review
    I think Smith Micro has a real hit with Poser Debut. As  a engineer I’ve always been impressed by an artist’s ability to convey a message using a minimum of information. If I want to represent a bird in a picture I immediately think of feathers, beak, eyes and wings. I break the feathers and […]

    I just discovered that I’ll be having steak for Christmas dinner instead of the ham everyone else will be having. Truthfully, I don’t see this as a bad thing but I hate to see this happen simply because my wife and I don’t seem to communicate on the meaning of …

    I decided to try WebhostingHub because $10 for a year of webhosting looked too good to pass up.  What I did not expect was a wonderful example of poor communication. I admit it, I’m cheap. I follow Rick Broida on Twitter because he comes up with some real bargains. When …

    Just after Easter, a friend told me about attending the last meeting of a club he had helped start almost 42 years ago. Their downfall was caused by a simple problem, nobody wanted to serve as officers. I suspect there were other factors too but considering the state of our …

    Remain calm. Act normal and look around slowly to make sure no one is watching you. I don’t want to scare you but I may have stumbled on an ancient technique of the Ninjas.  If I’m right, my hope is to spread it widely before I’m silenced. We’ve all had …
