Re: Hey software, get the fuck out of the way! Can it?

What does "Switch to Manual!!" actually mean?

Is it possible for software to "Get the fuck out the way?"

It isnt on my car - a 28 year old sports car - it still has a little computer running software deciding how much fuel to put in and which / when spark plug to fire , and when it fucks up , as it has a few times locomotion ceases.

My cay at least has a throttle cable - most dont these days , and neither do these planes.
