No one has ever used “Windows,” “stable,” and “good” within four paragraphs of each other...

That maybe explains the lag in all the control screens, seriously.

When Royal Caribbean cruise lines came out with their new Oasis class ships (huge, latest tech), we did the Muster Drill, where you meet at your designated area. Instead of a crew member describing the emergency procedure, there were dozens of LCD monitors in strategic locations showing an actor doing the procedures.
Very cool for 5 minutes until...

BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH. Not only Windows, Windows XP for embedded systems. Great. The crew had NOT drilled on what to do if the automated Muster Drill instructions crashed on the monitors. They were dumbfounded. It took about 30 extra minutes for them to get the right props and cue cards to do it the old fashioned way.

Then when I got a tour of the engine control room, yep, Winblows on everything. I'm not sure I'd take the North Atlantic route in one of those ships. The results could be of titanic proportions.

Well the good news is there should be 3 buttons we can push to fix everything.

Err... I'm not seeing a Control, Alternate, or Delete key anywhere. I wonder what they renamed them to?

Have you tried turning it off and turning it back on? :grin2:

But seriously that was one of the diagnostic "steps" Tesla had them do to my roadster when the main module was having issue communicating reliably with the Power Management Module, and that was Linux!

Also a while back the US Navy was looking into using Windows to manage their nuclear submarines...thankfully they decided NOT TO. Can you imagine, at depth, with a nuclear power plant and "sorry a fatal error occurred please try reinstalling Windows..."

One is the horn, the other is the windshield spray, and the 3rd is the kicking sensor for the boot!



(In case this isn't clear, I'm joking!!)


Seriously, though - remember Neil Armstrong landed on the moon with the computer kicking out Operating System errors.

  • Hello, this is James Vaboldashiani, what is your problem?
  • The screen will not hold the settings when I use an HDMI interface cable on a 1920 x 1200, WUXGA resolution. It is the on-board video included with the computer. Docs say it supports this res.
  • Did you make sure it was plugged in? - YES
  • Did you turn on the power switch? - OF COURSE
  • Did you connect the cable to the monitor? - HOW WOULD I KNOW THERE IS A PROBLEM!
  • Ship it to us and we will repair it. - YOU MUST BE KIDDING. It's a user interface problem caused by your lackluster software.
  • Sir, there is no reason to get snippy with me.
  • CLICK... bzzzz.
