I saw that piece, I must say that her enthusiasm is boundless, it was nice to watch. Refreshing to a child that doesn't have a damn cell phone in their hands.

Will this make a case for filing a complaint with the cops? Someone in nearby apartment keeps setting his hotspot name with all cuss words. I'm thinking, will there be any technology to locate the Lat,Long of this wifi & hire a killer-drone to smash through the window and shoot down the suspect. I guess he would be looking something like this[^].
Starting to think people post kid pics in their profiles because that was the last time they were cute - Jeremy Falcon.
Apparently it's available to anyone that wants to connect. My niece came into town and picked that one because she was more reluctant to connect to my wireless ("SkyNET Guest").

I used wifi names to advantage. One of my neighbors was an abusive single mother that was almost always screaming at her children. I named my wifi "CPS_Observation#42". She settled down quite a bit after that.
[In Texas, CPS is Children's Protective Services.]
I now live in a retirement community. My current wifi is "ItHurtsWhenIP".
I have arranged today for squashing a problem that was halting progress. A nutty issue with time a loop to complete getting around an issue the real issue is more time would to hold the delay long enough for the LCD display too catch up. I had a brain wave last night wrote some notes on how to do it, added the code and bang it now seems to working the way it was/is supposed to, boolean variables to the rescue!
I had a similar-ish problem about twenty years ago: new batch of LCD's wouldn't work with an existing board. Turned out that with the new 32Mhz Z80 I'd been outside the LCD data specs for about three years of production even with the old 8Mhz processor ...
Solution? Add a PIC to drive the LCD at the right rate, and buffer the processor output - couldn't do it in the Z80 as I needed all the performance I could squeeze out of it to drive the printhead and the additional memory access cycles would have crippled it. That was something of a lash-up, but by 'eck it sold in droves!
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

I seem to remember a short story set in the Star Wars universe that explained the Kessel Run faux pas. The "Kessel Run" was a route between two regions of the Empire. The problem with the route was that there was some kind of astronomical phenomena (nebulae, neutron stars, stellar nursery?) that made hyperspace travel dangerous unless you took the long way around. Doing the "Kessel Run" in 12 parsecs was therefore the height of ballsy and reckless piloting.
Gravity wells pull ships out of hyperspace, repentinely and with destructive results. Planning a safe route requires a lot of computational power (which the Millenium Falcon has since it holds 3 different navigational computers... scavenged and incompatible between each other and that's why it often malfunctions), thrust power to escape the outermost areas of gravity wells before they pull the ship out of hyperspace and pilot (over)confidence.
I have a cozy home in wookieepedia. And one on tvtropes.
Maybe, but I've never broken a screen on any (Android) phone I've ever owned, care, plus a silicon case seems to be all I need to stop damage. Not that I'm getting an iPhone 10 X or whatever its called any time soon.
The only time I broke the screen was when my Lumia 635 started going nuts and didn't stop for a while, and I needed to make an important call. I lost patience and the phone suddenly impacted screen-first on a wall... one of those ridged exterior walls. It didn't end well for the screen.
