So what are we supposed to use to connect to the old legacy projectors that is hanging around in offices and only talk VGA?
Is this a conspiracy for companies to buy new, bright, high resolution and silent projectors? I'm all for it.
Are you sure DisplayPort isn't another Betamax?
2. while you do that, divide up the code into modules that is a black box from outside
3. refactor those boxes as needed (split into more as needed)
and don't be afraid to do that before your program is finished, if it seems needed.
The time you save on a refactor is often quite a lot, so you shouldn't be too afraid of doing it.
Also making boxes like that helps testing.
But then again, I thought that was already what most projects did.
It's kind of a central point in most programming paradigms (both functional and object oriented).
My old dishwasher got something wrong with the temperature sensor, so it constantly boiled the water (when it was on) up to the point where the built in temperature breaker would kick it off (which was at >100C???!?). It did all this completely by itself without me modding it and usually without any error code (it alarmed about overheat twice during the three months before I noticed that it was actually a permanlent error).
I somehow feel safer modding things and knowing how they work than to trust engineers to do it correct, these days. I don't blame the engineers though -- someone probably went "but we can save 3c if we don't have this safety feature, remove it, that's an order". Luckily it _was_ still on _my_ dishwasher (the high temperature breaker)...
Dishwashers are highly servicable anyway -- but you can't user-_service_ the parts. You can however quite easily user-replace the parts.
As far as I've seen, all kitchen appliances are the same - but they are the same as in VHS players and CD players are the same.
They have the same components, but they keep coming out with control boards that aren't compatible at all.
It's probably easier to put in a raspberry pi with a relay board than to try to hack the control board.
It's not like a dishwasher is very advanced. There's some water level sensors, valves for letting water in, pumps (one around, and one out?), heating element and hopefully a temperature sensor that can be read. Do whatever program you feel like. How hard can it be?
That said, I'm still confused _no_ appliances (except iKettle) talks wifi (or anything, like BLE or zwave) - other appliances like TV and receivers have been talking to the user over the LAN for many years now.
That said, my next appliance to hack will be my Tea Maker.
Does it include blocking third party sites? It's the main reason I block ads - and I'm not using adblocker, but third party site blockers like RequestPolicy and DNS blocking.
I don't mind seeing non-intrusive ads, but I don't like being tracked by third parties.
...who cares, given that we have a backup of life?
It's not like their "good life" is making it worse here. (Quite the opposite, given investment on earth.)
""Never before in our history have enemies outside the United States been able to propagate genuinely dangerous ideas on American territory in such an effective way"
I first thought he was talking about the idea that people might go to jail for merely visiting webpages.
When did "open" become "you need to be certified"?
Would they also like to force everyone to buy guns that can only shoot blank ammunition?
I'd like to see that debate.
I wonder, what kind of roads and tyres are involved here?
I can't remember having a problem with wet roads while driving in a way that wouldn't be seriously uncomfortable - unless there's a few inches of water on the road or I'm driving crazy cars (like that 700hp Cadillac test car with slicks that didn't want to move with or without traction control). Am I just getting way too good tyres?
Unless the "wet" is frozen. But that's a completely different game.
But if anyone builds me a car that warns me of black ice in advance, I'd like it.
People just get so angry when bad driving is identified by sound.
...I know I haven't managed to replace serial ports. I haven't found any stable RS232 converter on USB...
Either drivers don't work, or everything I get is badly made (fake?).
Kind of weird that *serial* ports don't work well on an *universal serial bus*. But ah well.
Footnote: I work with OS-less devices (ARM7, 32kB RAM/256kB ROM). If a worm manages to target these IoT devices I will be _very_ impressed.
It will probably happen eventually, but I _will_ be impressed.
