AI Content Writing

I’ve tried using Jasper.ai, it works sometimes but many of the responses lack the right context and or coherence for making good content unfortunately.

However if you want to try Jasper yourself you can get 10k words when you use my promo link: https://jasper.ai?special=XB64oBl

There’s also chrome extensions like HyperWrite which is a really good idea for the technology to integrate seamlessly with people but the extension is still buggy, my first time installing it locked up my computer and almost crashed my chrome browser. It supposedly works with Reddit and Gmail but it doesn’t quite work yet with WordPress.

Similar to this is Github’s Copilot which uses AI to suggest or predict upcoming lines of code to save you time.

All of these services largely draw from OpenAI’s GPT-3 model which obviously is the third version of GPT, the second version GPT-2 was released for download but wasn’t nearly ready for professional use even with the largest 1.5 Billion parameter datasets. However now the GPT-3 version is bigger and more refined but you can only use it with their API to limit and protect the technology from potential abuse. You can actually access GPT-3 from the playground for free.

Chrome Manifest Version 3 with Websocket Server

I have been working on a chrome extension for a year. If you don’t know anything about chrome extensions or google platforms they are incredibly locked down, and have much fewer open features than are naturally available running code on your own computer. To be able to do certain advanced things from a chrome extension it is easier to send requests to a server that can do what you want. Google however has been pushing for security enhancements that make coding useful features in Chrome extensions even more difficult. When I began programming my chrome extension Manifest Version 2 was still useable, however since then all the old examples have been made obsolete, and the documentation is outdated for the new Manifest Version 3 framework. I spent a couple months asking in forums and searching for examples for making a chrome extension websocket client that could work with a websocket server and I couldn’t find an example anywhere. I eventually found some little bits of code on places like stackoverflow.com that I was eventually able to get working. I put this together as a working example of both a client and server with instructions on my Github.com
