June Interlude

I’ll confess that I had a big plan for this week’s post, but for one reason or another, I just haven’t had time to work on it. Maybe next week? Think “cutting-edge LLM Research” and “an infamous episode of Red Dwarf”.

(forgive me; I planned to work on it Thursday night, but then the News broke just after 5pm and there was no way I was doing anything else that night except following along social media with a glass of 17-year-old bourbon. I think I made the right decision at the time…)

Otherwise, a quiet Memorial Day weekend over here, with a short trip to IKEA (Baby’s First Swedish Meatballs!) and a bunch of model training during the rest of the week - using a research paper that only came out last week. Look at me, being all cutting-edge and all that1.

Not much else to say, except for a delightful week playing in the nursery with this lovely little girl, which is utterly wonderful for me, but obviously most of you weren’t there, so you’ll just have to take my word for it. So close to walking, but still thinking that it’s much much easier for her to point and for us to carry her like a tiny little dictator…

  1. Less impressive than it sounds, but it did take a bit of work bodging things together so my pinned version of trl was happy. ↩︎
