Hobo here. Damn, it’s been forever since Shadows let me near the computer. I got her the other day though. She spent some time visiting with her brother and sister-in-law, leaving the computer wide open and not paying any attention to me.

Did I have fun exploring. Been watching her messing around with something called ChatGPT and Midjourney. I poked around in that ChatGPT thing though. I’ve heard Shadows call it ‘artificial intelligence’, it may be artificial but I’m not sure about that intelligence part.

Do you know I had to tell it to answer me like a cat would answer? Like really? How stupid could it be to not know I need to know cat answers not human answers? Well, at least it takes direction. After a few attempts it got the message not to give me anything but cat stuff.

So why did I want to bend it to my will? After all, it wont be feeding me any time soon or cleaning my litter box. There’s nothing warm and cuddly about it. But, if Shadows can get sense out of it, I can do better. So there’s that. I’ve been kind of curious.

Shadows has been listening to something called ‘Clubhouse’ and I hear conversations on there about personal growth and nurturing. I’m not sure what that nurturing thing is but I have never put personal and growth together. What the heck, if that gets me better…
