ChatGPT - How Long Till They Realize I’m a Robot?

I tried it first on December 2nd... ...and slowly the meaning of it started to sink in. It's January 1st and as the new year begins, my future has never felt so hazy. It helps me write code. At my new company I'm writing golang, which is new for me, and one day on a whim I think "hmmm maybe ChatGPT will give me some ideas about the library I need to use." Lo-and-behold it knew the library. It wrote example code. It explained each section in just enough detail. I'm excited....It assists my users. I got a question about Dockerfiles in my teams oncall channel. "Hmmm I don't know the answer to this either"....ChatGPT did. It knew the commands to run. It knew details of how it worked.

Rails on heroku

Just found out that the new Rails 3.1.3 can be deployed to heroku using 'heroku create --stack cedar' instead of 'heroku create'.  By doing this, the only thing you have to change in the Gemfile is delete the line 'gem sqlite3' and add the following: group :development, :test do   gem 'sqlite3' end group :production do   gem 'pg' end then commit and push to heroku.

Deploying a Rails 3.1.1 app to heroku using Ruby 1.9.3 and Ubuntu 11.10
