To be remembered, you must have cookies enabled in your browser. Some people prefer using "private" browsing mode - which precludes cookies being placed on your device in the first place.
Some people use regular browsing mode, but may have chosen to disable all cookies in their settings. Sometimes, these people will end up tearing their hair out because a lot of websites just don't work at all, like many online stores, as many e-commerce platforms don't do bugger all without using cookies.
Me, I've got "Self-Destructing Cookies" plugins in my various browsers. Which lets me accept all cookies everywhere, smug in the knowledge that they will be deleted the instant I close that browser tab. I can even set it to delete the cookies only when I close the whole browser window, which is helpful with online stores.
And I can whitelist sites like the board, so the plugin doesn't mess with those cookies at all.

And you must use the same browser, on the same machine. Unless you're using something like a cookie manager that syncs to all your devices and things, your apple browser on your ipad won't have the delicious cookies chrome has on your PC. And unless google now manages cookies between your devices (who knows what the fuck they do), even chrome on your Android won't have the same cookies as chrome on your notebook, or chrome on your other Android.

If you've visited the forum at any time after November 18, 2020, you will have seen the message about a supposed data breach that may have exposed passwords. I know you will have seen it because, until today, there was a big general announcement right at the top of the everything.
Seeing how it's been nearly 18 months since that, with no further alarms getting rung, and how everyone has had 758,214 opportunities to take a minute to think about the security of their passwords, I've taken that notice down.

A.I. Generated UTMC Art

Post by problemaddict » Sun Jan 15, 2023 5:07 pm

Is there a thread for this yet? If not, I'll start...

Playing around with "MIDJOURNEY" AI Art program. You have to join a Discord channel and then you can enter descriptions for the images you are looking to create. For the first one, I simply entered "underground terrorist motorcycle cult". For the second, I asked for variation on the first image. For the third, I clicked on "Upscale" for the first (upper left quadrant) image.

Anyone else playing around w/ this stuff? As an insomniac, its a great way to whittle away time while waiting to feel tired again...

It’s kind of interesting to reflect on how those four words of our group’s name relate to what we ‘really are’, and to think about what key words might create images closer to our reality, if less dramatic and interesting. As the concept goes that you ‘can’t prove a negative’, so it goes that it is hard to express what the UTMC ‘is’ when so much of what it ‘is’ is what we are not, a place for those who are not part of conventional HD-worshipping, 1%-emulating low-effort US motorcycle culture tropes. I wonder what keywords would give images of back-roads riding, diner laughing, coffee drinking two-wheelers, and if such images would be any where near as interesting as shadowy figures in night rubble.

I hear ya, we are decidedly not aggressive ppl, but much of our imagery is pretty aggro.

I wonder if adding a - sign in front of the keywords would work in a boolean fashion... -larper -hd.worship, etc... Or maybe adding "tropeless" heheh

Here, I tried: road grimed astronauts, dimly lit parking lot, standing next to parked motorcycles

I think I should add "enjoying beverages"

This is the Uma Thurman Midget Circus evolved once:

Unicorns Took Mountain's Car is very disappointing!

@Shhted thanks, DALL-E 2 is a terrifying playground.
https://labs.openai.com/

You get 50 credits for signing up, and another 15 per month afterwards. Each credit makes four images, and they are well different from one another.

Here is Unicorns Took Mountain's Car, with a few tweaks.
DALL·E 2023-01-17 18.59.33 - Unicorns took mountain's car, pop art style, mean unicorns, small car, a lot of pink.png
DALL·E 2023-01-17 18.59.12 - Unicorns took mountain's car, pop art style, mean unicorns, small car, a lot of pink.png

Okay. I have wasted way too many credits on this, but I finally got it. This is the one!
DALL·E 2023-01-17 19.58.38 - Unicorns Took Mountain's Car, steampunk style, unicorns are menacing, car is a Citroen 2CV, unicorns are angry.png
I'm worried, really. I've been playing around to see if I could make it make me a nice cover for an old book project I was thinking I might pick up again.

We don't need AI to make art. But for a lot of things, this AI will make a lot of graphic designers unemployed. I'm thinking that, for a while, the marketable skill will be talking to the AI and getting results quick.

To my great dismay, the word "midget" is verboten, as is Uma Thurman.

So I tried unicorns and dwarf circus, pink, happy, hooray for choppers.
See at the bottom, the results weren't so groovy.

unicorns and dwarf circus, pink, happy, hooray for chopper motorcycles got the winner:
1DALL·E 2023-01-17 20.27.36 - unicorns and dwarf circus, pink, happy, hooray for chopper motorcycles.png
And these:
DALL·E 2023-01-17 20.27.30 - unicorns and dwarf circus, pink, happy, hooray for chopper motorcycles.png
DALL·E 2023-01-17 20.27.24 - unicorns and dwarf circus, pink, happy, hooray for chopper motorcycles.png
DALL·E 2023-01-17 20.27.16 - unicorns and dwarf circus, pink, happy, hooray for chopper motorcycles.png
the bottom (sans motorcycles in the description):
DALL·E 2023-01-17 20.25.59 - unicorns and dwarf circus, pink, happy, hooray for choppers.png
DALL·E 2023-01-17 20.25.49 - unicorns and dwarf circus, pink, happy, hooray for choppers.png

unicorns and dwarf circus, menacing, hooray for chopper motorcycles, dark

My favorites in descending order:
AA DALL·E 2023-01-17 20.37.05 - unicorns and dwarf circus, menacing, hooray for chopper motorcycles, dark.png
DALL·E 2023-01-17 20.36.58 - unicorns and dwarf circus, menacing, hooray for chopper motorcycles, dark.png
Unicorns that are gonna knife ya, well, the AI came up with that all by its lonesome. :shock:

Also ran:
