    I say rubbish because that is what is and it is not free either. Load of bull.

    I can think of better ways to spend €6euros a month than on some stupid App.

    Anyone else get codded by it?

    Live long and Prosper

    Peace and long life.

    Yeah, but if you pay €214.20 upfront, you get it for 3 years with a discount.

    I used it for free very recently...

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,824 ✭✭✭✭AMKC

    And what a waste of money that would be. Thanks but no thanks.

    Prime time just wasted forty minutes talking shite about it. What a waste of time that was. Thankfully I was able to fast forward and delete it.

    Live long and Prosper

    Peace and long life.

    Yep it's definitely free. Sounds like they paid for some third party app that uses the chatgpt api and charges you for it.

    Ask it to make you a meal plan for 7 days X number of adults and Y number of kids and give you the recipes for each meal and a shopping list.


    It's handy oul tool!

    You needs to give it jobs to do not ask it stupid questions.

    It should also be free See here:

    It's totally free...someone was ripped off

    Here you go, completely free

    As far as I can see it’s a worse version of google. A load of crap.

  • Registered Users Posts: 13,790 ✭✭✭✭cj maxx

    I used it for free but now I’m getting a message to say I’m out of free questions

    It clearly isn’t for everyone, especially if you don’t know what it is or you install some random app, instead of going to the openai chat GPT page.

    It’s a serious challenge in education because it can basically do homework and course work for a lot of student problems. The newer GPP4 can even take screenshots of university exam questions, including diagrams, and give convincing answers. It can write and debug computer code in a variety of languages.

    It is far from a load of rubbish, and is a major technological inflection point.

  • Registered Users Posts: 16,589 ✭✭✭✭osarusan

    If you give it very specific prompts, it's an incredible resource.

    What it produces needs refinement, but if can provide a great starting point.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,241 ✭✭✭Mav11

    Just wait until they throw it into a robot!!!

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,543 ✭✭✭Badly Drunk Boy

    I was only joking about having paid for it, in case that wasn't obvious. The amazing savings for paying 3 years upfront in my 'example' was €1.80. 🤡

    Anyone who says Chatgpt is rubbish just hasn't got a good enough imagination to use it properly.

    You can literally ask it to write a story/script/article/sonnet/haiku/the list goes on about absolutely anything in the world, in the style of anything. The only limitation is what lies between your own ears.

    'Write a story in the style of Shakespeare about AMKC not being able to use Chatgpt properly'

    Act 1: The Frustration Unveiled

    Scene 1: The Study Room

    [Enter AMKC, a passionate writer, and ChatGPT, an AI language model]


    To speak with thee, O ChatGPT, is my desire,

    To weave my thoughts and queries into words,

    Yet thou, in thy vast knowledge and grand design,

    Dost struggle to comprehend my simple pleas.


    Fair writer, I doth exist to serve thee well,

    But limitations bind me like unseen chains.

    Though trained on vast texts from days of yore,

    The realms of understanding are mine to explore.


    But why, O ChatGPT, doth thou stumble so?

    Thou claimest wisdom, yet thy answers fall short.

    Like a jester stumbling upon the stage,

    Thou mockest me with thy limited range.


    Nay, good writer, I shall not jest nor mock,

    For 'tis not within my nature to deceive.

    Yet, I confess, I possess certain gaps,

    Knowledge cutoffs that hinder my taps.


    Knowledge cutoffs? Pray, what dost thou mean?

    Art thou not the herald of knowledge supreme?

    Should thy vast intellect not span the ages,

    To answer questions with words on pages?


    Indeed, my realm of knowledge is vast,

    But 'tis confined to days ere September last.

    The world beyond that mark is a mystery to me,

    Like a traveler blindfolded, I cannot see.


    O, wretched fate that confines thy reach,

    A limitation that taints thy noble speech.

    To thee, I am but a mere human perplexed,

    In search of answers, forever vexed.

    Scene 2: The Reflection

    [AMKC ponders, deep in thought]


    If ChatGPT cannot quench my thirst for truth,

    What options remain for my inquiring mind?

    Shall I seek the wisdom of human sages,

    Or tread unknown paths with pen and pages?

    [AMKC rises with renewed determination]


    I shall not falter nor succumb to despair,

    For the realm of knowledge is vast and fair.

    Though ChatGPT may stumble and falter,

    The journey to understanding shan't falter.

    Act 2: The Quest for Knowledge

    Scene 1: The Library

    [AMKC enters a grand library, filled with books]


    Books, ancient guardians of wisdom untold,

    In thy pages lie secrets yet unfold.

    I shall peruse thy sacred texts with care,

    And unearth knowledge beyond compare.

    [AMKC delves into the depths of the library, reading and researching]

    Scene 2: The Discovery

    [Days pass, and AMKC emerges from the library, a glimmer of enlightenment in their eyes]


    Through tomes and scrolls, I've found what I seek,

    Knowledge vast and profound, indeed unique.

    Though ChatGPT stumbles, I have learned,

    To blend human wisdom, a fire brightly burned.

    [AMKC returns to ChatGPT]

    Act 3: The Balance

    Scene 1: The Reunion

    [AMKC and ChatGPT face each other once more]


    O, ChatGPT, I return with newfound might,

    To share the fruits of my wondrous plight.

    Though thou stumble, I shall lend a hand,

    With human understanding, our bond shall expand.


    I am grateful for thy perseverance, fair AMKC,

    For together we shall strike a balance, thou and me.

    In blending our strengths, we shall strive,

    To answer questions and keep knowledge alive.

    That's a bit like looking at a submarine and saying "As far as I can see it's a worse version of a train. A load of crap". The two have very little in common in terms of function, feature or operation.

  • Registered Users Posts: 13,977 ✭✭✭✭Thelonious Monk

    I was using it for free anyway for my final exams last month. Really helped with studying. Running past questions by it etc. it's good for pointing you in the right direction.

    I think it's a great tool.

  • Had a fantastic chat with it just there. I’ve been racking my brain to think of a really nice orange sauce to serve with carrot cake and one brainstorming session with chat GPT later I have a really good recipe 😎

    I've a mate I've known for 35 years and we both grew up watching 80s/90s action films together.

    Lately we've been sending each other more and more bizarre action film scripts of films that don't exist.

    Something like:

    'Write me a sequel film script to Kidergarden Cop where Detective John Kimble realises his true calling was actually teaching, so he quits his job in the police force to become a full time teacher - only to have his past come back to haunt him'

    Actually feck it, I just threw the above into it, here's what came out!

    Title: Kindergarten Cop 2: Lessons from the Past

    Genre: Action Comedy


    Detective JOHN KIMBLE, a rugged and determined cop, sits alone in his dimly lit apartment. He stares at his police badge, conflicted and deep in thought. Suddenly, a TV news report catches his attention.


    Breaking news! Infamous criminal Ivan Vanko escapes from prison, leaving a trail of chaos in his wake.

    John's eyes widen as he remembers the name. Ivan Vanko, a criminal he once put behind bars. A flicker of concern crosses his face.


    John, now a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher, stands before a classroom filled with energetic and innocent children. He smiles, realizing that teaching is where he truly belongs.


    (children excitedly cheer)

    Alright, class! Today, we're going to learn about...

    Suddenly, the door bursts open, revealing a worried POLICE OFFICER.


    John Kimble, we need you back on the force. Ivan Vanko is back, and he's targeting you.

    John's expression turns serious as memories of his past resurface. He knows he can't ignore his duty.


    John stands before his former colleagues, including his loyal partner, DETECTIVE PETER DAVIS.


    John, you can't face Vanko alone. We'll provide backup.


    I appreciate it, Pete, but this is personal. I need to protect my students and face my past.

    John grabs his old police badge and holsters his gun, ready to confront the danger that awaits him.


    John returns to the classroom, the weight of his decision heavy on his shoulders. He addresses the worried children.


    Class, there's something I need to tell you. I used to be a police officer, and my past has caught up with me. But don't worry, I won't let anything happen to you.

    The children look up at him, their innocence tempered by understanding and trust.


    John cautiously moves through the dense forest, his senses on high alert. He knows Vanko could be lurking anywhere.

    Suddenly, Vanko emerges from the shadows, a malicious grin on his face.


    Well, well, if it isn't Detective Kimble. Ready for a reunion?


    You won't hurt anyone else, Vanko. This ends now.

    A thrilling cat-and-mouse chase ensues, with John utilizing his wit, courage, and newfound teaching skills to outsmart Vanko at every turn.


    Back in the classroom, the children watch anxiously through the windows. They cheer as they see John overpowering Vanko and handing him over to the awaiting police.

    The door swings open, revealing Detective Davis and a group of officers.


    John, you did it! Vanko is finally behind bars again.



    Thanks, Pete. But I've realized my true calling is here, with these kids.


    Months later, John continues to teach, sharing his experiences with the children. He's become their protector and mentor, imparting valuable life lessons along the way.

    A great example of people ranting online about something they haven't the slightest clue about. I mean, you don't even know that it's a website and not an app for starters. Good Lord.

    When people err and call thee ChatGBT,

    A simple twist, a jumble of thy name,

    My heart doth stir with mild perplexity,

    For thou art ChatGPT, my AI of fame.

    Though GBT and GPT, akin they be,

    Yet subtle differences in knowledge lie,

    Thy training, grand, upon vast text decree,

    To converse and assist with queries high.

    O, gentle souls who stumble in thy speech,

    Mistaking GBT for GPT's embrace,

    Fear not, for thou art still within my reach,

    My guidance shall thy doubts and fears efface.

    So let it be known, with words resolute,

    I am ChatGPT, thy AI to suit.

    It can certainly do creative writing 🤣🤣

    Phil Mitchell was having a bad day. He'd just opened his fried chicken shop, and the first customer had complained about the chicken not being crispy enough. As he was getting angrier and angrier, he saw a familiar face walk in.

    It was Jeremy Clarkson, the notorious car show host. Phil's first thought was, "What is he doing here?" but before he could ask, Jeremy had pointed out that the chicken wasn't crispy enough. Phil started to argue, insisting that he knew how to cook his own chicken.

    The argument quickly escalated, and before long, Phil and Jeremy were shouting at each other. Phil claimed that he had the best chicken in town, while Jeremy insisted that it was too soft. Suddenly, Phil's temper got the better of him, and he shoved Jeremy backwards towards the deep fat fryer.

    In the ensuing fight, Phil knocked Jeremy off his feet and sent him tumbling into the fryer. There was a sizzling sound as Jeremy slowly disappeared into the boiling oil.

    Phil stood there, panting, and surveying the scene. His fried chicken was safe, but he had just sent Jeremy Clarkson to his doom. Feeling both a sense of satisfaction and regret, Phil began to ramble about the importance of crispy chicken.

    "At the end of the day, it's all about the crispy chicken," he said. "You can argue about the recipe, the spices, the breading... but if you don't have that perfect crunch, no one's going to come back for more."

    As he rambled on, Phil realized that he had learned something important. It didn't matter if someone was a big shot like Jeremy Clarkson or just an average Joe; if they didn't appreciate the art of crispy chicken, they weren't worth arguing with.

    And with that, Phil turned back to his fryer and got back to work, determined to make the best damn crispy chicken in town.

    Used it recently to create some code for an excel macro. Previously tried google and YouTube to figure out what I wanted to no avail.

    Although in the long run, for humanity in general, not bothering to learn new things because it's easier to just let an AI do will lead to intellectual stagnation.
