Will a self driving car be able to see in dense fog in the day time?
I use fog lights and slow down.
What happens when the detector can't see but the brain box thinks it still can?
Human drivers know from instinct what other human drivers might do in many
driving situations. Human drivers can't predict what self driving cars will do,
adding another layer of uncertainty and possible chaos to a human's drive.
How many miles have the people driven who think self driving cars is a good idea?

This popped up on the news a couple of hours ago. Two well known actresses, a co-founder of a global law firm and other assorted very rich people shelled out millions of dollars to get their kids into elite colleges. Why am I not surprised.

Well like the title says I'm back in the hospital because my COPD kicked up big time. Shortness of breath, ugly loud coughs and coughing up ugly phlegm. The mass in my lung is still there and I'm to see a cancer doc soon for palliative care options. Could be surgery or chemo or radiation. The surgery part I'm hoping is a last resort. I'll do the other nonsense and be a bald person, no problem. Then I can make other people jealous. I've had three breath therapies since I've been here. Got here ar...

You have to be old enough to remember Abbott and Costello, and too old to REALLY understand computers, to fully appreciate this.

If Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were alive today, their infamous sketch, 'Who's on First?' might have turned out something like this:

COSTELLO CALLS TO BUY A COMPUTER FROM ABBOTT

ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?

COSTELLO: Thanks I'm setting up an office in my den and I'm thinking about buying a computer.

ABBOTT: Mac?

COSTELLO: No, th...

So this is my question...

   We have a game going since 2009, the ban game. Very popular too, people come from all over the place to ban stuff. Another popular game was the Borg game. It got kinda tired and retired. So, since it is pumpkin season why not a game for the holiday called the Pumpkin game and instead of using Borg we use Patch. For example...I am Pumpkin so and so of Patch, make me a pie. Or some such. I dunno, it sounded good at the time.

I have been running the "Encounter Weather, version 1.0, by Stardock Design" on my Windows 7 PC for years. Today, I got a message that it "Can't reach Accuweather".

Does anyone know if Accuweather changed their Web Service or their security policy to no longer allow weather widgets made for DesktopX to retrieve data? I know that years ago there was a huge complaint from weather information companies that prevented several Stardock objects and widgets from using their servers. Maybe AccuWeathe...

I think Quenten Tarantino who I heard is making the next star trek would do a good job as long as he doesn't try to rip off other movies, but try to actually make a Star trek

So we may have a candidate for life around one of Saturn’s moons.



Looks like we will need to make sure we look closely at this moon for the new Star Control.

There are some very interesting articles and videos at just how terrifyingly it would be if it turns out life is pretty common. Because if that’s the case, where is everyone?

Yup, just like the title says only not out of frustration. No rants allowed. That said,

     Ever since I canceled my sub with Photoshop, life can be very annoying at times, I've been trying to concentrate on my other projects. However since I already know what I want to do, having already completed several prototypes on a breadboard, it seems only logical (don't ever say I'm logical. Me and logic have a love/hate relationship) to actually see what it is I'm trying to do. So I ...
