I hate having to click on a icon and then a button to see if the mirror I slected is running like shit or not, it was always easy to turn off, but getting it back on is a serious bitch
I am anti union, they protect and reward the worthless in our workforce
since when is blue collar a problem?
that is right since the 1980's when some wanna be hipppy farts decided we are a country of innovators, repersenting less than 1% of the population, how well has that worked.
the industrial might of the united states was not gained by a bunch of middle managers with their cracker jack degrees bought from the local strip mall, but its downfall most definitely has been
when I was in high school the place was loaded with computers, you were not allowed to do anything with them but they were there collecting dust and acting as jewelry
that was in the 90's
I think most people are using it to tell their family they are of after a storm, not the zombie apocalypse that most ham's seem to be prepared for
arguing sound quality in favor of POTS, wow
the speed isnt the greatest, but my comcast goes down about once a year when some yutz hits a telephone pole
dude, its been that way for most of a decade now anyway and you didnt even know it
and a shitty one at that, though not 39$ I have a 800Mhz vortex86 board with ISA, pci, 8 serial ports, printer port, IDE port, floppy port, 4 USB, 32 5 volt GPIO, network, and uses laptop DDR ram.
That thing is so old every major part on it has been obsoleted to the point of just about impossible to find, so A whats so impressive about yet another PC on a board, and B) why is it so fucking slow?
In your definition a lamp on a timer or a clock is a robot. Machines on timers, no matter how elaborate are not robots.
An example I am familiar with is a pick n place machine for assembling electronics. It takes in a board communicating with the conveyer belt before it, grabs it, aligns itself to marks on the board, makes adjustments to its coordinators , knows what the part should look like, will error if it doesnt see the correct part, knows when the reel is empty, knows when it dropped a part, it communicates with other units in line with it and will even optimize the entire process across multiple machines
That is not in any way tied to a timer that just performs action X for Y time, if it worked great, if not tough shit, like my washing machine or my bread maker.
yea but I dont see a washing machine that knows that I put in exactly 5 pairs of jeans and adjusts automatically, your just manually changing a overly complicated timer
I do see robots being able to take in a product, identify it, determine any variations, and automatically account for it before doing its thing
my washing machine does not balance the load when it shakes
my washing machine does not stop when the water is out in the spin cycle
my washing machine is a timer connected to a motor
my washing machine gets turned on, and runs though the exact same cycle 100% of the time
a Robot adapts to variations
its really that simple
Where Amazon can watch you and tailor ad's based on your balance
I would bet the majority of people buying these things only own 1 screwdriver, a pair of cheap pliers and a hammer
