@QuickBadger: ...that is, if they can remember the inspiration the next morning.

You say this because (a) young people have short attention spans or (b) they drink too many beers (see the beer thread elsewhere in these comments)?

@caleb: Maybe you should build them a robot companion to keep them company till you get home.

Funnily enough, my friend Duane Benson is working on a Robot Avatar, and he says he will build one for me also.

I know I've been inspired by a few. Or innebrated, I'm not sure which word fits better.

yeah, poor beers. You really shouldn't leave them alone for too long. Maybe you should build them a robot companion to keep them company till you get home.

These robots could inspire many young engineers.  that is, if they can remember the inspiration the next morning.

Please stop forcing so much scrolling and clicking

I hate the typical news site design that has a single narrow column for the actual content, a massive header at the top that forces scrolling on every page load, and dozens of tiny pages to be loaded for each article.

This drinking robots article is a perfect example. I can't get to the next robot without scrolling down and then clicking the next link. And this is on a 27" Thunderbolt Display with 2560 x 1440 pixels. What a waste.

Just put all the robots on a single page. I don't mind scrolling for more content. I hate scrolling just to get to the start of the content, or to get to the controls that lead to more content.

@Rick: ...and maybe a beer meetup, too.

I can already hear the plaintive cry of a cold, lonesome beer: "Max... Max... where are you?"


To which I can only reply: "Don't worry little one... I will soon be racing to your side!"

But that said, I think we need a beer engineering story for most Fridays...and maybe a beer meetup, too.

Ah. Now I thought this was going to be about Liquor Inventory control, like http://www.liquormonitor.com/ or Bar Vision. There are some cool technologies afoot for making sure bartenders don't give extra booze to, you know, their friends.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
