We aren't exactly outsourced, we've provided GP It for years, but you're exactly right that (so far) we haven't been able to use nhs.uk and this is alterative atm. We are chasing on it! I've just updated whois and checked SSL for book.nhs.me
Mum just got a text inviting her for a Covid jab. It correctly gave her name and local GP surgery, but A) she's not in the priority age group, and B) the registration link was at book.nhs.me, which looks shady as hell.
Phoned up the GP, and apparently it's genuine...
But - I like to think I'm pretty tech-savvy, and I can't find anything online - links from nhs.uk, SSL cert, whois record - to definitively confirm that book.nhs.me is a genuine site rather than a very well-done scam. What were they thinking? 😡
It may have taken five months for the algorithm to catch on, but it looks like I've finally achieved Viral Internet Sensation status with this. Half a million views and counting... invidious.fdn.fr/watch?v=ReblZ7o7…
For anyone who's still confused after all this time... the original song / video is Bad Apple, a fan-made video for a track from a remix album of the soundtrack of a video game series called Touhou Project. Or something like that.
Since it appeared in 2009, it's been relentlessly remixed, covered and parodied, and on the demoscene there's an ongoing quest to get it running on as many old and obscure platforms as possible, much like the "can it run Doom" thing. So I made a literal music video of it.
By all accounts the original video is awfully clever in how it how it showcases the characters from the video games, but I wouldn't know anything about that. In fact, I made a point of not learning about them, because that would have kind of spoiled the fun.
Based on the Youtube comments, I get the impression that the inaccuracies are *just* on the wrong side of grating to proper fans, in a "use the force, Harry" or "Americans making British-style tea" kind of way. Which is pretty much what I was hoping for.
I'm pretty sure that in the second picture, the tutu is the entity doing the dog-walking, which is a perfectly valid interpretation of the input.
AI isn't going to eliminate the need for programmers who are good at writing clear specifications for computers to follow.
I remember downloading pop videos on kazaa, most were ~1MB but “Move Your Feet” by Junior Senior was only 5K; the video was a mock-8-bit stop motion animation and the entire tune is repeated 3 times. Compression perfection!
