  1. Just a heads up... In the next week or two we will be making some major upgrades to the site to bring the software and server fully up to date. While the upgrade happens the site will be offline for the day. There will be some quirkiness after the upgrade, but we'll get it all sorted out.

    I just realised this week how young Alexi Laiho was when Children of Bodom started becoming prominent. He was born in 1979, and Something Wild was released in 1997, Hatebreeder in 1999 and Follow the Reaper in 2000. Nuts.

    Apparently Alestorm have started recording for the next album titled "Seventh Rum Of A Seventh Rum".

    I like their choice of name :)

    Geez, good thing it was the ground floor! I suppose a good strong structure always has some flex in it, so you've just gotta look out for when it seems like too much.

    They had it 'fixed' a day or two later for the next concert.

    From the photos it looks like they used some temporary structural supports.
    On an aside: My local council building (Burwood) had to use temporary structural supports in their building a while back. I thought it was interesting that even the local council had problems during the whole "buildings at risk of falling over" saga. :)

    So I typed "Tell me about the band known as LORD" into chatGPT (an AI) and this is what is has to say. I think it's a little bit off, but not too bad?

    I also thought this bot might be able to settle an old argument :)

    1998 hey? HAHA! By that time we were on our 3rd release and getting close to our first decade, and if you want to be pedantic, LORD (as in a project with that name) was less than a year old and only existed as a JPG on my computer and a couple of 4-track tapes in a bedroom.

    I should probably complain about my Horizon (and my M-II) because they came with Alder bodies rather than mahogany.

    I think the worst thing about ChatGPT is that it gives really authoritative answers that you kind of interpret as being correct because it's so sure of itself, but in some cases are wildly off the mark.

    Remarkable software though, I spent a good couple of hours playing with it one night and as something that can be a genuine help for inspiration on something ("tell me a horror story about a murderer in a house with an axe" and you have an outline you can overhaul and make your own, for example), but it's scary to see where this will be in 20 years if it keeps learning like this. Dunno if it'll pass the Turing test by then but it'll be crazy "smart"

    You'd think there'd be some obvious other Lord it conflated things with to get 1998, but I can't find any. The bot must've been thinking of Westlife.
