    Why not? Powershell is supposed to replace that outdated piece of junk called cmd.exe.

    you have to start with an elevated command prompt.

    you can't elevate a command prompt in session

    Basically, to the software pilot argument, I'd say we don't need pilots any more. The HMI should be simplified to a set of read-only status windows with minimal inputs. You want to pilot a plane? Get yourself in a small single or twin-prop. Otherwise, the computer is going to do a better job of it than you will, and for more than 98% of the time. If the auto-pilot of a particular make was statistically proven to fail in 2% of emergency cases, all of those planes would be grounded indefinitely until a new software patch was applied to improve reliability.

    While probably true, you'll need a person on-board to look like a human pilot or the passengers will flip out.

    Yeah, i'm on board with that. Basically, the pilot is replaced by what we'd call an "operator". Someone to provide boots-on-the-ground diagnostics to a central tower (like Ground Control for NASA), play grabass with any attractive flight attendants, and smile and wave at the passengers.

    also go "no, computer, this is the ocean and not the runway, no matter what that instrument is telling you" on occasion

    Yeah... This is the one.

    As soon as you involve hydraulics in the flight controls you have gotten to that 98% place execution wise, but there are still decision making things better done by a human. Part of the difficulty right now is that pilot training, and pilots themselves, still focus too much on flying and not enough on decision making (even if there is lip-service given to the other way around.

    Basically we've got pilots being player/coaches, that should really just be the coach.

    I remember when Papa Johns whined about how much it would cost consumers if Papa Johns had to give every employee health insurance, and it was something like 50 cents more a pizza and most people couldn't give a fuck.

    Similar to McD's, someone ran the numbers on how much more an extra value meal would cost if McDonalds paid employees a living wage and it was like a buck more. End of civilization I tell ya.

    We've already bumped the McDouble from $1 to $1.19 because we released those fucking Buffalo Ranch McChickens and the greatest burger ever, the BBQ Ranch Burger (If you having tried one, get it. It's heaven. Just as for American Cheese instead of the Cheddar. You'll thank me later.) but even then, they still call me in 2-3 days a week, then bitch at me for working over 30 hours a week. And lets not forget that I didn't get a raise for being late to work (which is odd since anyone will tell you, including my log in times, that I am hardly ever late, I'm one of the first people there, if not the first.)

    I sometimes wonder why I got out of the drug dealing business. 2 years in jail wasn't so bad...

    Wal-Mart still is proud that no one makes minimum wage in Michigan. Everyone gets above minimum wage. When I worked there minimum wage was $7.10 and I made $7.90. What an increase. Those promised yearly raises of .25 an hour really helped too.

    hmmm I don't think so

    there's still ample space for good-weather "look out of the window" assessment of the situation, or all-weather communication with the tower, computers are not yet well-placed to handle that kind of data processing

    Most good weather VFR is good for training students on older generation planes, and a computer will perform just as well in good-weather as a pilot. IFR, for when the pilot can't see anything, is basically what commercial pilots use pretty much all the time anyway.

    You can't exhaustively test for every possibility.

    You're choosing to exaggerate your point.

    Airplane manufacturers generate a large set of requirements that are tested. Software, Hardware, and the integration of these parts all have requirements associated with functionality and performance tolerances; all the way down to each individual line of code, wire, nut and bolt. Each one of these requirements might have more than one test to ensure adequate coverage of the requirement.

    The FAA has a large set of specifications and work-instructions on how-to-validate-your-plane that drive a majority of the Airplane Manufacturer's requirements. These documents are the foundation of what lets an aircraft fly in US airspace. If you can't prove your aircraft to 100% of these specifications; you are not flying your air plane in US airspace. Saying, "Yeah, our computers are likely to not be able to handle 2% of situations" will get your aircraft grounded.

    Thank you for your input Dr. Dyson. We'll be sure to put serious consideration into your automated piloting solution. Why, this may even have some military applications!

    Appreciate the snark. :P

    One of my favorite of the sort of social viruses that were going around in the early 00's was something we called the redneck virus. It was nothing more than an email. Just an email that told people to delete a particular file on their PC and the email was signed "IT Department". It was amazing how many people just straight up followed the instructions and then afterwards called IT to find out why whatever it was didn't work.

    I honestly think that my oldest cat would lay down on top of me and be really confused why I wasn't moving and would I assume that I was sick. And I think she'd stay there until help arrived.
    And this is something I think about when I'm pondering suicide, and it's pretty effective at getting me to stop thinking about suicide.
