I don't want any personal gadgets at all - spend enough of my life with them at work Smile

Just yesterday I unloaded a whole pallet of new Lenovo mini pc's for my line-side labeling and machine data collection project. Next week will be vision sensors to verify the right part is being packed into the customer containers.

In fact, my husband and I are giving ourselves a trip to the west coast to spend the holidays with his family - it will be his first time home for Christmas in 30 years.

Perhaps there is a reason for that. :-P

All I really want for Christmas is 6 numbers on one line just one time. Laugh

But even without that a I have sort of already have been given my dream Christmas gift as a combo from AT&T extending services and my company. I was able to dump my 110 mile round trip commute to be able to telecommute. That saves me two hours and three gallons of gas per day. That's $10 per day I'm not spending. Cool

A little bit of this and a little byte of that can cause bloatware.

Kindest Regards,Rod

It's still a tax on people that are bad at Maths. Put it in a mutual fund instead!

Please don't go. The drones need you. They look up to you.

To borrow a concept from one of my favorite old Star Trek episodes, I long for the simplicity of play.

--Jeff Moden

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair
