    Excellent use of cut & paste. Can you type actual words by yourself?

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    B.C.
    Has the Evenchu thread been cut & paste from another website?
    Maybe the cut & paste thread could have come from a web crawler auto-bot?

    I've had been getting what could be described as "ground-hog-day" type web pages from CTN.
    Further more, I no longer get my regular email updates from CTN.

    What if we could count the stars... , what number would you stop at...?"

    It was cut and pasted from here (I recognized my own words):
    Electronics

    It doesn't look like a bot though. The paragraph was edited down. Can a bot do that? =^..^=

    RE: Bot edit.
    Yes there is text "concise driven" software on the internet. I haven't used concising software in years. There would be better AI driven software by now.
    Example : Early versions of Microsoft Word did a context concise of the entire document before saving the document to the hard drive.

    AI (Artificial Intelligent) driven software has been used for a very long time.

    Without getting too bog down in code the implementation of AI, it has been done using the very early versions of Cobol and Prolog programming code. Basically Prolog/Cobol program code uses a lot of recursion. Recursion means the software code loops on itself to find pattern matches. When a pattern is found the result is output as a user response to the question they've typed in. The use of recursion algorithms code can give very convincing results that can lead the average user to believe it is a human response.

    IMHO, Supercomputing using AI is going to become a problem in the future. Skynet senarios... hmmm maybe.
    No power hungry group has the right to play at the living breathing god they believe they have become.

    Re: Electronics

    News reporting agencies are using A.I. to produce news articles and report, for example

    The Washington Post's robot reporter has published 850 articles in the past year - Digiday

    Not sure how others feel about this but this scares the **** out of me. The opportunities for abuse , social and emotional manipulations are staggering.

    Yes I'm aware of the legal,ethical and moral implications of the technology future ahead.
    We already have supercomputers or quantum machines that can outdo the human intellect on many levels.
    At $20 million per computer, they're a bargain deal prices to major corporations.

    Imagine if such a machine where assigned arms(satellite laser weapon) to issue varying pulses of pain at the individual person level,
    what sort of world can future generations of children look forward too?

    How long before the quantum computer(s) become self aware and decide that it's own creator(s) are a threat to its very existence?

    I remember as a kid laughing at comic books and reading about Buck Rodgers style laser weapons. And now comic book laser weapons are reality...

    I am afraid that we have only seen the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the pittfalls of AI. How many movies in the past have we seen " out of this world " ideas in advancement of tech in the world..... and NOW some of those ideas have come to fruition? Far too many possible quirks could really bring the issues to light....

    Stealing someone else's post and using it as your own. That's a new low. WTF is wrong with you? Go away douchebag.

    Re: Electronics

    Have you ever heard of Arduino?
    With him you could do many interesting things.
