OK - I get it - falling off to sleep whilst lustily counting sheep doesn't take calculus.
However, algebra is really a representation of how we solve problems all day long that have any sort of calculation. It's done as a background process. Now how far goes? Well - do you use all the subtleties of programming you were supposed to learn? Probably not, but you will still claim to have coded (at least in Q&A).
Sorry if you lost count of the sheep - there go your Welsh Pub bragging rights . . . unless you can exploit 'lost count' in an implied context..
If you're going on a bicycle holiday you might want to look at the big brother, DJI Mavic 2.
It has a built in obstacle avoidance system and ActiveTrack, which means you can set yourself as the target and it will follow you on your bicycle.
And amazingly enough it can do that not just behind you, but in front of you or at your side! I have one and it was quite a wtf moment when I started tracking my son from the side and it didn't fall back behind him but rather stayed at the side of him.
But all those cameras it uses for obstacle avoidance takes quite som space and weight, so it weighs 907g instead of 249g and requires registration in many most countries.
yeah, I need the functionality of the the DJI Mavic 2 in the smaller package typical consumer, more functionality in a smaller package please
In all seriousness, I do need to look more into this, 30 minute flight time for the smaller model may be an issue, so I would have to keep 'n' batteries charged - may be too much pfaffing around on a holiday.
I see plenty of cycle-touring on YouTube though, so I'd like to give it a shot - would also mean changing my standard route to learn/test it, I doubt the prison I pass by in close proximity would like it (actually I have an app by our Civil Aviation regulation authority which marks the prison as an obvious no-fly zone)
I saw an ad for a webdesign company but I have my doubts about the url. The name was "web one", nothing wrong with that. The url is webone.be or am I the only one who finds it funny Probably am. It's friday...
the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it

Wow, I didn't get the joke until after reading this reply and checking back on the original.
I thought it was a far fetched joke on sounding like web onebe (sounds like: web wannabe)

On the other hand, I'm not sure what a kids exchange would be.
Is that like a trading platform for kids?
That wouldn't be so weird either, I've often heard people say "You want kids? You can have mine, I haven't slept for days"
I need a little humor after my latest dealing with a webdesign company. The Sr. partner decided our company website needed a new look...something 'modern'.
Until then, all website maintenance/design was my responsibility...but I'm apparently no designer, so the partner knew of a guy who had just started a webdesign/marketing outfit. 6 months later, I'm learning how to use WordPress to edit every single hyperlink to relative. I had given him a sub-domain to build it (as he didn't have his own resources). I had expected to be handed a completed finished package for deployment, but apparently I don't know how these things work. Anyway, the plan from the beginning was to build it under a sub-domain, then simply switch the default website on the server when it was ready. This was why I wasted the effort emphasizing that all links should be relative. Yeah, it worked just fine for the demo and I'm sure the guy already got paid. I knew upfront that I would be the one maintaining it.
This doesn't even begin to deal with the horrible design...huge background images and huge fonts. The main landing page shows a menu, one headline and a short blurb until scrolled. I suppose you could say it's a very minimalistic approach emphasizing the use of bright colors/background images, large fonts, and some weird scrolling effects and banners. But wait there's more...in order to provide consistency, new content must be created using a proprietary WordPress theme builder.
