lol I was joking to my boss a couple weeks ago about how we could point ChatGPT at our sites and have it do chatbot answers instead of regular search, and welp

one of the hackathon projects last week was pointing chatgpt at our internal wiki

is that actually possible? Or do you just mean you identify a single article that seems relevant first and then feed it to chatgpt or something?

they used a library to load an index, then used gpt-3 to answer questions on that index

for the most part you're right but I homeschooled for a year (also not recommended) and skipped a grade in order to avoid middle school due to bullies and other social issues, and I can guarantee that my life would have been much worse if I hadn't


of course, the right solution would have been to deal with the bullies directly or to move me to a different school system entirely ( which we eventually did, but it wasn't practical at the time)

it was more of "in two years they'll still be in middle school while our son is starting high school"

until I did some vague exercise when I was 18, I fit in the second category of nerd: tall and v. skinny with a BMI of 'uhhhhh you need to eat more'. like virtually zero body fat at all. then I had zero body fat but some actual muscle to go with it.

even now I don't think I float because I have such a low body fat percentage lol

fast metabolism 4 lyfe*


*possibly only until 40s results may vary

hello fellow "single digit body fat in their 20's" I am now 41 and technically obese despite best efforts so good luck
