Post: RE: Jarre (rewrite)

I tried and tried to coax ChatGPT into spelling it correctly, and failed every time. The singularity is not yet upon us, it seems. I have removed the taller images that likely couldn't be cropped, and...

Thanks, Steve! I have incorporated your image and edited the caption accordingly. At some point I will see if I can coax ChatGPT into producing some imagery to accompany key historical events, like th...

For perspective, this is what the planet image looked like when I tried to color-correct it myself: https://i.ibb.co/9455bxf/prototype.png Ideally it should be more of a reddish-pink colour than...

Post: Jarre (rewrite)

This article is a rewrite of the Jarre article, found here. (https://www.orionsarm.com/eg-article/4902515f791e9) It is rather lacking in detail, so I rewrote it in the genre of Mike Miller's "baseline...
