General Observation


#1

It amuses me when I go on sites how complicated people make things. I remember years ago my Dad telling me when computers first started that the more people used them the stupider they became, because they forgot a computer will only do what you tell it to do. All they are a yes or no thing. Being young and stupid myself at the time I disagreed with him. Now I am older and wiser I wish my Dad was here so I could tell him he was right and show him why. My Dad was an educator by the way and his rule of teaching was to keep it simple stupid, he probably wasn’t the first one or the last one to say that, but it’s one I followed ever since. Look for the simple solution first as that will be the works - failing all else hit it with a hammer (not really)

KISS rules :sunglasses:


#3

When I first learned about computers, I said that a computer was no smarter than a pencil. The only thing is, it’s like a billion pencils at once.


#4

The old computer adage: Garbage In, Garbage Out.

this reminds me of all of the recent articles about AI and how when (not my original thought, but i agree to the extent that i understand such things) that term is broken down it is just a fancy name for an algorithm which is a fancy name for a set of rules written by a person that (more than likely) shares their strengths and weaknesses in equal measure.
