About Teh Guide
Teh Guide is a little personal wiki I ( — rsheyd 2023/09/05 23:02) created to document things I have learned, in a single organized source of information. I hope to make it a public wiki that anyone can edit, kind of like Wikipedia.
I always liked the idea of having a guide to life, universe, and everything, and this little wiki is an homage to that.
It was also created as a potential repository of information about how to effectively use AI - specifically ChatGPT.
Info Not Found Elsewhere
Additionally, this wiki serves as a repository of information that I haven't been able to find on the internet, or if I found it, the information was significantly obscured by ads, access restrictions, or an unclear interface.
In the past, I would write a blog post on my website, www.coderoman.com. That worked fine, but didn't seem like the best way to share reference-style information.
StackOverflow / StackExchange
Later on, I started using stackexchange websites like www.stackoverflow.com to share the questions I was researching and the answers I found. However, the editors on those sites were overzealous with blocking the information provided, and after a few occasions of my question + answer being closed or incorrectly marked as off-topic, I decided that it wasn't worth my time trying to contribute to those websites.
- An example of this was my question about how to create a chat group without a 2nd participant in WhatsApp, as described in the WhatsApp article. The question was marked as off-topic in the webapps stackexchange, and the editor said it should be sent to the WhatsApp developers as a feature request. This prevented me from finding, or being able to share, a workaround that people can use to accomplish this need.
The word “teh” was inspired by a t-shirt that was featured in the webcomic www.questionablecontent.net.
- www.skool.com - seems like it might do what I'm looking to accomplish with this wiki, but better. My worry though is it still might devolve into editors having too much personal bias like at stackoverflow.
