I bought my desktop Linux machine years

I bought my desktop Linux machine years ago (like 2016, maybe?) with excess RAM because I knew I was gonna be doing Chrome and Zoom on it. It's been under-serving as a home server since my current gig. But I decided to point OpenAI's "Whisper" at my video archives, and now we're seeing stuff...

It's chugging away. Kinda amazed at how bad modern voice recognition is, both that process, and Google's (I recorded last week's voice lesson on my phone, which Google dutifully transcribed). Like maybe this'll be useful for search engine bait, but it's definitely not good enough to call subtitles.

All <cite>ed text will point to the Flutterby knowledge base. Two enters (ie: a blank line) gets you a new paragraph, special treatment for paragraphs that are manually indented or start with "#" (as in "#include" or "#!/usr/bin/perl"), "/* " or ">" (as in a quoted message) or look like lists, or within a paragraph you can use a number of HTML tags:
