Strengths and weaknesses vs OpenAI, etc?

I think they are different models with different focus. Perplexity is a better search engine with more accurate and friendly results(can have attachments, and it can pull out "standard" code quickly). OpenAI and Gemini are better for content generation. Still more to learn and practice...

There is also a newcomer by Tiktok, coze.com/, said to be close to GPT4 but free and with larger token size. You can build bots(like GPTs) to perform tasks.

I started a new series about learning Rust. I wasn't expecting it to get much traction but it managed to earn a Rust badge!

Not much on the work front, but I made some headway on a few homelab projects I've been putting off, biggest was figuring out Traefik. Now I'm working on putting everything under version control.

It's mainly just a geek toy...but I mean, who doesn't wanna say "I have a Dell PowerEdge connected to a pair of Dell MD1200's in my basement"? πŸ˜‚

Seriously though, it's mainly to feed my curiosity. I have a few things that are "mission critical" (Nextcloud for family document storage/sharing, a couple of web servers for work-ish stuff, Plex server), but for the most part, it's for me to play with things.

I took apart my Switch, didn't completely destroy it, and fixed the red Joycon rail. It's a new revision Switch (not OLED) but it's already falling apart. Drift/Loose Rails and a missing kickstand.

Nintendo, I'm taking care of it, I swear.

To transform my website into a more eco-friendly and sustainable one β™». I even wrote an article where I shared my full experience:

Now, I want to automate this lengthy process using some AI.
