It and the journal you wrote Saturday and a third you wrote Sunday. So yes, it's borked.
Sundays at noon an old friend has a blues show on a local college radio station, WQNA. Of course, since the blues and booze go so well together, Sunday is my "drink too much" day. So by eight I was too drunk to edit. I put the book down and picked up the notebook and started typing.
If that was the only reason for the arrest, then you witnessed cops breaking the law.
The cops in NYC are a criminal gang that routinely violates citizens' civil rights. The fact that they're still doing this illegal "stop and frisk" bullshit after multiple court rulings against it, proves that they're not there to protect the public, they're just tax collectors and obedience enforcers.
You people who believe in the singularity very obviously don't know how a computer works. It's simply an electric abacus; look at schematics for an ALU or a logic gate. How many beads do I need to put on my abacus before it becomes self-aware?
The danger is anthropomorphism; it's simply too easy to fool people into believing they see sentience where there is none. Evil people will use this to their evil ends.
If someone tries to push a bogus charge on your credit card, you call the issuer and dispute the charge, and you also call the cops and file a fraud charge.
It's tragic what government schools do to tiny little minds like yours.
Government initially regulated transportation for hire for legitimate safety reasons;
Nope. That was just the pretext for the power-grab.
You should see it as an insulting term.
Why? I'm not embarrassed at all by having gray in my beard.
We're Programmers, we're Engineers, we're Coders. Anything else is insulting.
I don't feel insulted by terms like "expert", "graybeard" or "guru".
I do think that "rockstar" is bullshit, though.
It looks like you posted this JE Saturday, it just showed up in my "messages" today.
I heartily invite you to go fuck yourself. Your approval of his attire is neither sought nor required.
For a human, using a sponge and squeegee combo is probably the most effective way to clean a window. For a robot, I would imagine that the answer is something more like a pressure washer, with a hood which covers the work area and reclaims the wash water. The water would then be filtered and reused until the particulate count rose too high, at which point it would be flushed and replaced with fresh. A sheeting additive would be used to cause the water to run off without spotting.
This probably wouldn't replace human window washing entirely, but it seems like it has the potential to replace at least some of the washes.
I've often wondered if anyone has ever tried a project to make a building which washes itself, using a robot designed for the building, and a building designed for the robot. I can imagine many problems with such a project without even undertaking it, mostly related to critters taking up residence in the mechanisms and/or tracks, but if it operated continuously that might well eliminate some of those objections. A universal window washing robot has a more complicated task than such a device would.
Did you even read the article? You'll find it discusses how the old World Trade Center Towers had built in devices that were made specifically for the building that would automatically go up and down cleaning it. The only problem was they missed the corners and creases of each pane and the rich people at the top of the building didn't want the grimy borders to their new expensive view of NYC.
It sounds like you have a lot of ideas for building a nice big heavy expensive machine that moves up and down a building. Burst forth and implement your idea, I think you'll find that the the weight, the power and the water feed to these devices will push you towards what has already been implemented and did not do a satisfactory job. Humans had to follow up behind the built in robots to clean spots they had missed.
It's funny, I read articles on Slashdot about how AI is the one thing that threatens man. And we can't even implement AI and pattern recognition to replace a window washer -- oh the incongruity!
I almost never wash my car. Let it rain!
o I had the money and CHOSE Android over IOS. How does that fit into your narrow world-view ?
Making this claim from the cover of anonymity tells me that you're ashamed of paying so much for crap.
