@DavidAshton "Yep, nice turn of phrase Karen!   Brought to mind an old movie - "King Frat"  the highlight of which was a farting competition...which was won by a girl.  A bit like National Lampoon, but worse..... (You weren't an actress in a past life were you?? :-)"

A girl won the competition, eh? How unladylike!  I was an aspiring actress in like second grade or so, but I couldn't stop giggling uncontrollably when I read my lines, so they put me to work behind stage. :-)

@maxmaxfield: What can I say -- your words transported me out into space -- it's like I was there LOL

I'm so pleased that my very prose struck such a chord with you, and I'm sure it was a trip down memory lane to your own, uhm, frat boy antics of the day!

@Karen: ...though the 10-year-old Rosetta was designed in the 1990s and only has 2 MB of RAM, of which only half can be accessed by the operating system due to CPU budget constraints...

So if they'd had a larger budget, the operating system would have been allowed to access the other half of the RAM?


It really makes you realize what you can do with very little if very little is all you've got...

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
