“Immoral removals”. I’ve done a few of those, usually after morning coffee. heh.
Noooo, I’m NOT talking about taking a farm animal back to its home - geez. blech!
(Hey, comedy is a dirty job, sometimes, ya know?)
DK, if you weren’t such a superstar, your words would not be so valuable.
But truth is, you ARE a superstar, and every word you say… is gold, at least to SOME of us. I actually vacuum-clean Q&A every night, after hours, to make sure I have gathered every DK-made word/statement used in Q&A answers. They’re hot!
I’ve gotten GREAT mileage/performance from all your words. They pay-off, every time, over and over. I use them… to pretend I am an expert at things, sometimes. GOLD!
One exception: Deltakosh once said “Don’t let github scare you”. I’m struggling with that.
Light nodes, huh? Interesting. (beard-scratching contemplation)
It’s gettin’ kind-of “nodie” 'round here, wranglers. “Node” is starting to have the ambiguity of “object”, huh? PirateJC was talking about IoT the other day… Internet of Things. In my new Lake Babylon “Smart Home”… my coffeemaker will be a “node”, right? My microwave, sink, toilet, furnace, water heater, AC, lamps, doghouse, sprinkler system, electric flag pole, car, and my DK-words-vacuum… will each be “nodes”, yes?
Or are they objects? Or are they interfaces/APIs? Or… sigh. Nodes, of nodes, of nodes, of nodes… I think I’m getting a brain tumor node. Perhaps this is related to “ontologies” (categorization/relationships of “stuff”… “sort-by” ops - yawn), which is one of the uses of an XML/SGML called “RDF” - Resource Description Framework. “Defining resources… for over 20 years!”
It’s part of “resource discovery”, which happens just after throwing the power switch on ANY IoT node - like your coffeemaker. Your BJS-based virtual home… will need to be told when the coffeemaker changes from not-available-resource, to available-resource with freshly-updated “state” (status) information… available from the resource upon request. (resource discovered - wake-up howdy-do handshake with all listeners who care about wake-up howdy-do handshakes)
Yay, internet-level Plug’n’Play! But watch out for folks who try to “profile” your coffeemaker and do targetted-marketing tactics at poor Mister Coffee. There could be a HUGE future for Personal Password Management devices. Mom wants HER toast… light. Little Susie wants her toast, medium-dark. Dad wants it manly-dark. Everyone needs their own toaster account and password (login - sets prefs/options per username). Erf.
What’s the subject, again? Oh yeah, the new Light Node feature for the NM Editor. PARTY!
