( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Maybe I am addict. I have a Jura coffee machine at home. Coming down after the shower, turning it on is the first action. It can be personalized, and my coffee setting is somewhere between strong espresso and ristretto. When working from home in the morning, I take 4 doubles of those. Addicted? maybe. But when I carefully choose my beans, all other coffee tastes so awful that I rather drink water.

That reminds my of YAPC Birmingham. The breakfast room did have an espresso machine in the adjacent room that produced really good coffee. Maybe someone I had breafast with remembers how often I visited that machine :)


Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    [GrandFather]: However, by the end of the day I had discovered its deceptions and now have it working correctly, so yes, all's well that ends well. :-D
    [Corion]: GrandFather: Ah, (hardware) APIs - I have a similar situation with Chrome and its API... It is fairly underdocumented and I guess I have to hunt...
    [Corion]: ... down supposedly working code to find out what I'm supposed to do
    [GrandFather]: I haven't any "working code" to inspect! I have to find ways to generate reference signals then check the numbers I get at the far end match.
    [GrandFather]: That's ok when the signal is a voltage, but there are three axis accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers in these things! A little invention is needed at times!
    [Corion]: GrandFather: Yeah, in that aspect, hardware is far more a black box than software
    [GrandFather]: Oh, and the manufacturer tells lies too! I'm sure they don't mean to, but I know for sure some of the stuff they say is just wrong. It's possible they don't understand what we are asking, but that's not a good look either
    [Corion]: GrandFather: Ah, unit testing hardware is fun, especially when the hardware is uncalibrated ...
    [GrandFather]: Us: "What scaling do we need to apply to the numbers from the SDK for the wibble?". Them: "Oh, the numbers from the SDK for the wibble are already correct, they don't need scaling"
