reset your shifting

Lou,

On your shifting issue, I was told that power cycling the car (disconnect the battery completely for long enough to lose all power everywhere) will make the transmission control lose it's settings.  It may shift funny for a while until it re-learns the shift pressures.  The shift pressure control valve in those transmissions is a pretty common source of trouble.  it is a $50 part that takes $500 worth of time to dig out.

Thanks for the article, naperlou! Techcruch recently posted an article and video from the folks at the European RoboEarth project describing a system called "Rapyuta". This cloud-based engine collects and stores information that has been gathered by all sorts of robotic sensors which is then shared with other robots and sensors systems -- described as a "Facebook for robots".

Unlink the millions of years of evolution in biological systems, we seem to be on a near-vertical exponential part of the curve when it comes to automated systems.
