Pretty pissed at this new firefox update. It moved my profile to my Desktop folder and started me a new one, required an entire reboot of the machine to run without crashing immediately, and enabled all telemetry and everything (must be the new default settings for fresh profiles). All of this without a single prompt or warning!

height: 100%;

background-position: center;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-size: cover;

Introducing #Botober, a set of AI-generated drawing prompts for each day in October!

I generated these using GPT-3, a neural net trained on a huge amount of internet text, but not on drawing prompts specifically. (This explains a lot)
