    Mayslack's in Minneapolis has used the slogan for decades. Old Man Mayslack was a retired wrestler who set up a restaurant of sorts that featured roast beef. Folks from the surrounding neighborhood would line up outside during lunchtime for their sandwiches, with waitresses going up and down the line taking drink orders.

    When one finally got to the head of the line, there would be Mayslack, knife in hand. He'd size you up and pile your plate with as much meat as he thought you could eat.

    This was back in the 60s. His descendants carry on his name and meat and slogan to this day.

    Needed to integrate an automatic QR code reader into a project - small budget, must be automatic, must have a stand (the last surprisingly limited choice)

    iMac 27 32Gb, up-to-date OSX, best part of £2k - "What? No, absolutely nothing plugged into that port, dont know what you're talking about"

    Xeon, Win10 latest, 32Gb, around £900 - "Yeah something was plugged in, just havent got a clue what it is. No, you can't tell me how to treat it manually"

    Raspberry Pi with Linux / Node-red / Pixel preinstalled on a microSD, £53 including delivery - "Oooh a QR code scanner! Tell you what I'll treat it like a keyboard, how's that? Now fire away!"

    Posted By: TrimRobot surgeons are getting better all the time and in keyhole surgery are often superior.
    Robot surgeons are not robots. It's a misnomer. Robot surgeons are actually remote manipulators coupled with remote image display endoscopes. The surgeon is an exquisitely trained human. He or she has to be an excellent general surgeon first and then trained additionally with all the difficulties of the endoscope and remote instrumentation.

    And it's not a keyhole. It's up to 5 or more separate "ports" so multiple instruments can access the surgical field simultaneously, along with irrigation fluid, suction, electrocautery, carbon dioxide injection and of course, the endoscope itself. These ports are significant wounds. However, the deleterious effects are not as bad, in most cases, as one large surgical incision and visualization of the structures is much clearer and better if the surgeon is expert enough. It can all turn to crap though and require an open procedure. Robots doing surgery? Nonsense.

    Posted By: Trim(really listen the latest sound detectors can hear an insect walking) and come up with a diagnosis at least as good as your GP could verbally.
    More nonsense, unless your disease is caused by insects walking on you.

    Jeez, Trim, where do you get that crappolla? Who vets it for you? A vet-urinarian?

    Posted By: AsterixISTR a massive class-action suit against the purveyors of the Da Vinci surgical tool...

    A sample
    That article suggests that the really valuable innovation in surgery is the use of endoscopic surgery, not the remote manipulator that is misnamed a robot. That issue remains open to research. It may turn out that the extreme precision, superb visualization and small scale motion that is possible with the DaVinci device will be better than endoscopic surgery by human hands. To me, it seems likely, when and if all the bugs are gotten out.

    Asterix's article seems to be about lawsuits stemming from burns caused by the electrocautery associated with the DV tool. This is a very essential part of this type of surgery because it helps to insure an almost bloodless operating field. Hopefully, they will soon get it right.
