Re: Has anyone tried chatGPT or character.ai? Anything creative?

I tried chatgpt for a variety of applications and no surprises to its strengths and weaknesses given the nature of machine learning/AI. Its key strength lies in generating creative contents by piecing together information that it has been trained on. Examples include writing poems, short stories, si...

Re: Chinese New Year 2023

Thank you for the warm wishes! Chinese New Year is my least favourite public holiday and festival due to all the cumbersome traditions and practices. I would usually try my best to do the minimal number of house visits required and I never like giving out red packets to kids/unmarried adults that I ...

Re: Are you a Vegetarian?

In the past two months, I changed my diet for weight loss again, and this time, I tried low carb (no bubble tea :( ) , high protein (mooore meat!) diet and I learnt how to cook some simple dishes at home. Glad to say that it worked and I lost 6kg in 2 months! I need to get back onto that. Some year...

Re: Are you a Vegetarian?

I am not a vegetarian and probably never will be. I tried eating vegetarian once per week years ago for weight loss but failed miserably probably due to presence of gluten in the local vegetarian dishes. In the past two months, I changed my diet for weight loss again, and this time, I tried low carb...

Re: 2023 - Scholars is Back Online

Every couple of months I'd poke my head in here, see the general error and remember the grand old days of the early 2000s for forums like this. That SoSZ was gone did feel like a final nail in the coffin. Amazing to see that it came back, I never expected that anyone would bother. Kudos to you Jame...

When I celebrated my 20th wedding anniversary with my wife, and I was already a member of SOSZ before I was married. :shock:

Re: Who do you think you're most similar to in RTK?

I think this changes as I go through different life stages. In my younger days after I graduated, I would like to be similar to Sun Ce, young, ambitious, trying to carve up something of my own and find my Zhou Yu. As I got into the school of hard knocks, I realized that I need to be realistic and mo...

Re: What Do You Do To Pass Time During This Pandemic?

During 2020, I spent most of my spare time playing World of Warcraft, and of course, Netflix binging. In 2021, overseas travel was still not convenient but it was possible to do indoor sports and I did plenty of badminton as well. Last year, I visited Thailand twice and Maldives so it was a great ye...

Re: Why do you come back?

I'm back because I missed the folks here back in the days when it all started. Amazing how almost 2 decades flew by from my student days, and you guys are still around! Time has changed though and I have taken up new hobbies such as badminton. I seldom watch three kingdoms TV series (last was the on...
