It is commonly said that the Nokia 3310 is indestructible. By extension, we can assume this applies to other Nokias that use the same form factor.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, I have created a pi generator (or, more accurately, adapted an existing one that I don’t fully understand).
A great breakthrough has occurred in the field of artificial intelligence. The machines now know all about Java Cake Games! ChatGPT doesn’t have a clue, likely due to the age of its training data, but Bing is on the ball!
