Plumbers Have Dripping Taps.

By Dermot Tynan, 4 months ago.

It's a little bit of a cliche, I admit, and I'm sure a lot of plumbers would object to the stereotype. But I can tell you it's true of network people. We end up with elaborate network configurations in our houses, which are never finished. VLANs for guests, VLANs for servers, multiple WiFi networks, firewalls, and so on. All just a few configuration steps away from perfection! I discovered that this is also true of robotic sailboats.

I'm including a link here for an interesting article published by the BBC on autonomous sailboats.
