is that an 8" or 5.25?View attachment 246532 Old guy thought - I wonder how many of the young smartphone users would know why that is called a 'disk'? It is certainly not 'disk' shaped! Going even further back - the floppy disk would probably be a real mystery if you hadn't been a computer user when 720 KB was adequate capacity for a project file!

The method of 'data-exchange' requiring walking, from one computer to another with a disk, was known as 'Sneaker-net'.However, our contractor had his own system, and we developed a method of data interchange whereby every evening, we took a disk across to his adjacent office containing all the orders issued during the day. In the morning, he brought back a disk containing all the orders completed the previous day.
Hmm, that may say more about the Doobie Bros than it did about the intellectual capacity of the robot. Maybe it had a profanity filter built in!They are simply a machine that can add one, and take away one - no more and no less The fact that they can do it quite quickly, repeatedly and without fatigue is what puts them in the forefront of technology.
They cannot 'think' because they cannot reason, nor can they formulate a judgement. Jeremy Clarkson proved this some years ago when presented in America with a 'thinking' robot. His first statement was, 'What do you think of the Doobie Brothers?' The computer / robot could not provide an answer
I've also noticed that in Unity game development forum. I think it is just a feature making the user's text persistent even though not posted. Handy if the user accidentally leaves the thread before posting which would otherwise lose the text. I'm not sure if it is implemented on the client side or server side.What is strange in this case, if I type into the new post box, and don't hit the post reply button, that text will stay there even if I don't post it and go somewhere else.
