Why Its Pointless To Argue With Global Warming Believers 2101


Snit

In that POV, yes indeed they do disagree. The only thing I had when working was by doing. And that was my only proof. Back in the 80s I did the automated test engineering for a shipyard. There was also a company called Trane Indiana that also wrote ATE programs for circuit cards that employed around 1500 engineers that hand wrote test programs to run on the Navys portable test set. Well, we got a nice VAX back then and I found out a way to write a fortran program that could convert the binary image from a digital circuit board straight to the test sets language. Instead of taking over two weeks to do the conversion by hand the program took about three seconds. After finding that their programs only covered about 70% of the faults that a circuit board could have, I wrote a program to turn their code back to the original binary image for the Genrad program to churn for more fault coverage. And of course back the other way to the test set. Needless to say, when I found that almost all their programs were found to be bogus, crap hit the fan.

Um. Common sense? The only thing you have to do to get people to get subsistence farmers to stop hacking down rain...

What prompted the program was a circuit board that came in with a chip with top blown off. Well, my coworker fired up the test set program that trane wrote and said the board was okay. Very Bogus. And the worst was that we were right, but yet got shut down due to politics. Two engineers versus 1500.

-- Where are we going? And why am I in this handbasket?
