I was hoping for 80586. . .
Than you could imagine.
Before IoT hospital care and the machines involved needed a common language, so one was devised (by commitee*) that allowed each machine to talk to another. This language is coded to the point that it would take a person at least a week to be able to read off the codes as if it were plain text.
At least one hospital (one that I know of) uses Perl script to do all of the tasks (nothing wrong with that, right?) because Perl is a get it done language.
All or most of the equipment suppliers are hard codeing in the common language into the various machines, really, I think that the only reason this disaster waiting to happen has not happened is that most hackers would not deam it much of a challenge.
* not naming common language, two letters and a number.
This is kind of wierd; there are down votes on every post that disses ccleaner.
You cannot really marry software, but, I quess if you think you have it is nice to know that you are the faithful sort.
(in your heart you know that ccleaner still loves you and won't hit you again.)
Knew something was a bit wrong there; this thing only has spell check when I don't need it.
Take a bunch of freinds round to watch, shoot the nest with a slingshot, stand very still while wasps chase freinds.
Ran out of freinds; had to quit.
I had one once that had 679 actual examples of (il)legitiment malware; some requiring a trip into regedit to kill entirely. The user was some kind of savant about clicking on the wrong thing.
(But kept me in extra spending money for years, so there was that.)
No, the cat is probably fine; humans, however, are likely to be considered an invasive species.
Under the private prison system, profit rules. So if it is cheaper to keep someone in a 5 by 5 box than a 10 by 10 box then the box gets smaller. Eventually, once AI becomes really good, the box will shrink to 2 by 2 by 6 and feeding costs will go way down.
So yeah, don't do the crime and probably don't make posts like this one.
I could be wrong but the problem as I remember it was a reduced partial pressure of CO; you would have plenty of oxigen but without the carbon dioxide in your lungs you just don't feel the need to take a breath.
Which would mean that in some situations pure oxigen would not help.
Perhaps a "breath stupid" light could be installed on the heads up display
Or maybe that was Washington, I will have to research this.

No, it was Lincoln's; the quote was "Go to the theatre".
If someone laid out a deck of cards, all of them the queen of spades, in front of the head Ompa Loopa; would it change anything? Probably not; that sort of thing only happens in books and movies.
(Stiill, the moscovien cantidate would make for a good title.)
No icon because I don't know whether I am making a joke or not.
Kind of afraid to fire up my old Amiga. . .
(or the TI99-4a for that matter)
Some one will be bragging about how fast Skynet will take this crap out as soon as we hit the big red switch. . .
They find out that most people have noses.
Point being, David was supposed to have been a mega genious who programmed in machine code and had access to a captured processor. There are only so many instructions availible on what we build and he only had to sabotage one interrupt; the one conrolling the shields.
Put that way, most of us could have done that but it would have taken a lot longer.
Since the script did not allow for a week of no sleep and ld50 levels of coffee, they wrote him in as super smart.
*windows, bsd and linux myself but apple has progrmmers too; comes to that the first time I messed with assembly it was on an apple ii, 6502.
The language will turn your arrays into objects on a moments notice causeing hard to debug errors (at least at first) and has hard to find different gottchas from one browser to another. What it will teach very well is that life is unfair and that you need to take notes.
All hanging off the side of a lunar rover and wagging what we can only hope are pool noodles.
(now I've that image in my head the rest of the night)
One or two more frog pills should take care of it.
That I completly removed it after I got root access on this tablet.
(If I want something misspelled I can do that on my own)
I think I have a derringer; and if I had a horse, I would definatly buy it a pistol.
Just make every bit of leakable news so damned nonsensable that any reasonable person would disbelive it.
(They might be doing this by accident)
Wikipedia is a synonym for "crowdsourced knowledge"
Actually, wiki-wiki translates as fast so-
Wikipedia translates as half-fast encyclopedia.
Extream 'bed' vetting.
Enhanced 'bed' vetting.
Digital 'bed' vetting.
Someone must have been 'abused' as a child.
Is to do this kind of nonsense over the phone.
"My boss is watching"
Never mind him, just lay your hand on the top of the case and repeat after me; loudly.
I just had a disturbing realization; this d**n thing teaches bad habits.
You are supposed to keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire.
No, that is funny, and I would buy one. Have another upvote.
And the planet we shall name Mickey . . .
Tieing a hard drive to a tree and preparing to empty a 1911 at it.
"What the hell?"
"Help me find the shovel; still have to dig a shallow grave". . .
There was a comment in MS DOS (2 I think) that went along the lines of 'if I had wanted you to use the damned /
I would have told you'
Those were the days when you booted up the machine with a floppy that looked as if it had been used as a frisbe and hoped.
Sometimes, it is nice to write the tightest, most obscure code possible. Knowing, as you do so, that you will not have the slightest idea what the hell it actually does within two weeks time.
A 'work of art' snippit that should have been done in ASM, or INTERCAL, and you think 'job security' of sorts.
And later, so much later, find this little code calttrop with the simple comment:
// don't change this part
And wonder, "What the hell was I thinking?"
We did this all the time at my last shop.
Like this 'sand-bagged' Android, why, you wouldn't have that problem.
A cell phone; a Nokia up side the head could leave a mark.
Just wondering, are you trying for down votes?
Because that type of comment probably gets down voted by Apple users as well.
No, going back over the relevent equation and subsituting a negative mass you do not get infinate velocity as a result.
In fact, at very high levels (infinate energy) you come up with the speed of light, as observed.
(or as close as makes no never mind)
Actually I should point out to you that simply parroting what some non traditional fringe sceince has to say without thinking hard . . . is a bit ironic.
Couldn't just hire a knobbler to ...
No, they do knees, what kind of ASBO dose fingers?
Oh, well; down vote bait.
The exact center of the Earth would not be subject to a gravitational force (because the mass around that point would be balanced). Full force of gravity at the surface, less the deeper you go.
I am fairly certain that even Jules Verne knew this.
Sometimes things go wrong 'under pressure'.
Security by obscurity also has worked real well in banking, ah, hasn't it?
(nobody really care whether an Apple gets hacked, and LINUX is now becoming 'the computer for the rest of us'.
I have been looking for a good word by word translator. It is all well and good to translate 'I think my pig is whistling' (german) to 'I am confused' (english) but when that happens you don't learn the language.
Real world version of 'dead zombie children in the pipe'.
And, they are chanting; drains, drains. . .
Sounds like server admin 101. Run tail -f on the server log so it actually appears you are doing something, screw with the log in script so the MFC encounters the random core dump (yeah, that's listed under RFC whatever, schedule us some over time and we will get it fixed)
And of course. . .
Keep the cattle prod charged.
When I was doing these things I would use a phrase of over 40 charactors, change that to '133t' speak, then reverse the whole thing.
Were I to run servers again I would now do something different.
(because that scheme is now public)
Some of the best sarcastic wit I have seen on your side of the atlantic pot hole and you call him a troll; the man plays the perfect dumbass better than Steve Colbert, have some respect.
Yeah, you're right; a person like me, who carries a lot of guns would be inclined to sue their asses off.
No, the real question in my mind is will it still crack walnuts.
James Clerk Maxwell developed four equations that derived the speed of light.
He had to find two constants (constants in a vacuum) to do this.
Good to resolve some arguments (speed of gravity being a compression wave does not care -pathetic fallacy be damned- about units of electric charge and permeability) and no other mediating particles travel at C so there.
Crap is all over empty space, random ions, solar winds, dead stars and wandering planets: the poor little photon never stands a chance.
As an aside the wiki page has a major (and very irritating) error on it
Any one else see it?
The first recorded name for "#" in an English publication out of a British writer (presumably) was an octocet.
So I kind of laughed when Bell Labs coined octothorpe thinking, well reading.
(which they didn't do.)
But they got away with it so I have taken to calling it a tic-tac-toe game for ants.
Whats a Grecian earn?
