The guy who works at the desk next to me had his car stolen last night. He noticed it missing, called the cops, and gave them the details.

An hour later, the cops called back. His car was found wrapped around a tree, and the two 15 year olds who'd stolen it are in hospital fighting for their lives.

Druidling V1.0f turns 12 next week, 15 looks scarily close.

I hear the f models aer less likely to steal cars .

Though, they may really want to hang out with those who do.

My oldest girl is 10 today... and 15 still seems scary close!!!

Teach the children well and hope you made an impact... it is all we have as the "old man" and hope the rules they decide to break are only the ones we did too...

F models don't seem so interested in stealing cars, as mentioned, but can be attracted to M models that think that is "kewl" - unless we manage to ingrain the routine "right v wrong" deeply enough - unfortunately that routine is known to contain some bugs that on newer hardware can sometimes take time to work out!

Talking to those that have experimented with programming such progressively newer hardware in the past the only solution seems to be constant checking and revising the subroutines!

Good luck - because as I have found (and been advised) the constant revisions in the "firmware" these models receive means that there is no guarantee that previously used subroutines will 100% work...

All we can do is take previously used codes and try to adapt them on the fly to the new variables to which the newer hardware models are exposed...

[Eek!]

My oldest girl turned 16 in September. She's doing fairly well learning to drive, but I am definitely not ready for this.
