you will find your car pulling into the nearest walmart, telling you there is a sale on things you like to buy, that your friends are already there shopping, and you must sit in this parking lot for at least 10 minutes before going home or pay the unlock fee on various 3rd party apps your car installed for you at 2am this morning.

This is ridiculous! As much effort as it takes to replace skilled labor with automation and we succeeded, now you think we cant accomplish something as simple as automating the poor? The consumers are the easiest part of this whole economic equation to replicate!

why every single major news organization is running garbage robo programming instead of covering this event?

fox is talking about the cia
cnn is talking about dinosaurs
msnbc is talking about pot
local news channels are talking about lions/vikings cowboys/eagles and who is tracking santa claus this year

i found one station - cnbc world - that is bothering to cover this finally after a few hours went by.

do we need half the planet to slide off into the sun before someone bothers to stop into the news station to push a live feed button?

We do have two experts on staff long term that maintain the core, but yeah new people come in and get started with us all the time and it works out great. They add to our platform as need and eventually move on, and PHP is a decent platform for this model to work. Why do you think this is somehow wrong? Are you too old and get cant a job now and need to cry about it somewhere? This discussion is about what works as an alternative to perl. PHP is working great for our situation.

When some people discover the truth, they just can't understand why everybody isn't eager to hear it.
