you didn't say wireless phone...
not a central one at this point. I will bet you a gallon of Ethyl that the pumps have hardcoded authentication, and the software probably has enough holes you could drive the Indy 500 through.
you don't want that on a network. not even for a little bit. you want that locked behind a panel. if there is no security, all you have is obscurity.
and it gets worse forcing autoplay of that dancing singing crap, much of which gags my browser. take your Flash and HTML5 and go to hell.
a Proton light on the small one, along with an AP fob. on the heavy one, a Lenkurt 40-year fob.
the other stuff does not appeal to me. bleah. however, set the Keuritty on the floor, let the cats pick what they want to eat by pushing the lever... that's no problem. I could do that machine. as long as it doesn't use those damn DRM containers.
running power to it would be another issue, but hey, I have a coil of 12/2-WG still begging to be opened...
(( checking to makes sure I don't have that stock anyplace ))
as long as the vacuum or glow-gas holds out, a function of the amount of Kovar seal around the leads and whether it has a glass cap, those puppies would come right up if power came back.
not buying that crap. except my alarm system.
wait a minute...
once you did that, it's not your phone and your life any more.
they want crap apps on a phone, they have to provide the phone. otherwise, you are chattel, like cattle, only not in demand at the supermarket.
I code in longhand! and where's the punch for the paper tape?
there's no fudging the data if it's a fail this way.
"git a rope." (c) others.
the larger and older the agglomeration of civilization and stuff, the creaker and more wasteful things get. for instance, the 1930s control system for the subways, much of which has yet to be modernized. with oceans rising and hurricanes becoming more destructive in coming years, nature will clear the decks.
it begins with her nearly crashing Lucent during the dotcom boom and Y2K boom. since they were selling the once-Cascade, once-Ascend 8000/9000 frame relay switches that were the backbone of the Internet, that's hard to do in my book.
she almost took down HP also, back when the whole board was playing Spy vs Spy.
lost big in California politics.
thinks mass firings were a good thing.
not what any country needs.
Mordac and his associates as Preventers of IT at my company insists and demands that only an older IE exists on our machines. so half the websites I visit lock the machine up. this is, of course, the usual silliness about keeping creaky old code, as well as the insistance that IE is the only safe choice with all the mayhem out there.
at home, I have given up on resize-happy Firefox and use Chrome exclusively. if Mozilla would fix that freakin' bug, I might reinstall it.
