@betajet: Max, you can say you'd heard of him and that you actually know an American who has read one of his books :-)

I knwo lots of Americans who read books -- some of those books even contain words (the rest are graphic novels LOL)

Patrick Modiano just won the Nobel Prize in Literature.  Chapeau!  While well-known in France, M. Modiano is largely unknown in the USA.  Max, you can say you'd heard of him and that you actually know an American who has read one of his books :-)

The English translation of Rue des Boutiques Obscures is called Missing Person.

@Etmax: ...ignorance is bliss :-)

Which may explain why I'm such a happy fellow :-)

F@betajet: For the rest of the book he tracks himself down, and discovers something so heartbreaking that it would have been better if he had never known.

My, you're just a little ray of sunshine today, aren't you? LOL

Perhaps she thinks it's better not to know.  As the saying goes, "when ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise".  Or maybe she's looked under too many rocks in her life and found all sorts of disgusting things, so has learned not to look under rocks.

I once read an interesting novel called Rue des Boutiques Obscures [The Street with the Dark Shops, by Patrick Modiano] about a man with amnesia who by happenstance gets a clue as to who he really is.  For the rest of the book he tracks himself down, and discovers something so heartbreaking that it would have been better if he had never known.

To the best of my knowledge, my wife hasn't actually read any of my columns, which says something for her lack of interest in (a) technology or (b) me ... I prefer to think it's (a) LOL

Now honestly, what self respecting programmer writes code like that?? That's almost sillier than not checking whether you've reached the end of your buffer.

@Paul: One that I especially like is Tech Support Cheat Sheet.

I LOVE it -- now I come to think about it -- the Google thing is just what our system manager seems to do ...

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
