Re: Caution, Wet! Computing explained

if you use beer everything will be true !

Interesting video, the yes/no true/false paradigm is an interesting one, especially the maths behind it going back to boolean algebra and the man who invented it, George Boole.

Re: Caution, Wet! Computing explained

I remember programming locomotive controls with a 8086 back in 1986. The system had 16kbyte SRAM with an option for a 2nd 16kByte. So I put the second SRAM into the socket. Powered up, loaded the program. run it. Writing value<>0 to the second RAM resulted in all being 0 or false. Damn. Checking the program. Reading the  address contents again and again. Eventually RTFM again. 2nd RAM needs a jumper next to it. Put the jumper. Works.

Clue : If you use beer everything will be false.

2nd Clue : The keyboard will become sticky with a Weizen inside. tried that too.

haha, good one.

I was more or less thinking of the quote:

"A drunk man's words are a sober man's thoughts"

Beer tends to bring out one's "inner truth" as it were..
