@devinprater @imagecaptionspls@gup.pe doesnt look like it worked ... @OCRbot maybe?

aside about imagecaptionspls 

@robey @/imagecaptionspls@/gup.pe isn't a captioning bot - it just boosts posts to the group of volunteers who decided they were willing to volunteer to caption stuff. The captions are written by people when they see that there's a request.

@packbat i wish “toot!” had the same ocr support as the website. it’s easier to fix ocr mistakes than to start from scratch

@devinprater @robey @imagecaptionspls it's from the webshit weekly: n-gate.com/hackernews/2021/02/ (under “What I Worked On, February 16, 2021”). even if you can read the image, i would figure that it's just generally considerate to link the source of something.

Paul Graham takes a break from telling people how to think, in order to focus on a more general-interest topic with a broader audience: himself. The result is a fourteen-thousand word morass constituting the slug track left by a spoiled clown with no meaningful contributions to make to anything. Hackernews continues to be in love. One focus of their adoration is Paul Graham's toy programming language, Bel, [1/2]

@blueplanetslittlehelper I'm sorry, I don't think I understand. What does this have to do with?

@devinprater I can't help you because I don't understand this myself. I only wrote what was shown on the screenshot.

@Moon @denza252 @robey this is mean, and also TIL about bel, will read later
