Let's Make Robots!

Best Robot Quotes

All this robot-thingy.. so many gray zones.. Is it life, what is a robot? What drives us to make them, what is happening in the future, what is so much yesterday, etc..

It leads to many quotes, just as early computing must have had it's classic sentences & quotes.

A couple of times I recieved a mail, or stumpled upon some text, and had a laugh or a deep thought etc.

I sometimes thought that I wanted to write these somewhere, on some tag wall or something.

So here goes, comments to this post is .. BEST ROBOT QUOTES:

Work through the daytime, spend my nights and weekends
Perfecting my warrior robot race
Building them one laser gun at a time
I will do my best to teach them
About life and what it’s worth
I just hope that I can keep them from destroying the Earth

I do believe you are kinda off topic, gents :D

Hey, this can get a lot sadder with the combined skills of the folks around here! Not allowed script links it seems (for fairly obvious reasons) but you can add this as a link for quick decoding:

javascript:(function(){var txt = '';if (window.getSelection){txt = window.getSelection();}else if(document.getSelection){txt = document.getSelection();}else if (document.selection){txt =document.selection.createRange().text;}else return;txt += '';txt = txt.replace(/[^01]/g, '');out = '';for(var i = 0; i < txt.length; i+=8){out += String.fromCharCode(parseInt(txt.substr(i, 8), 2));}alert(out);})();

Just select some text and press the button

So do I. A ton. Every chance I get. I was going to say how sad you are, but then I realised I wrote a program to decode the string. Even sadder, than I wrote a program to encode a reply.
Was this a test? Did I pass? Am I of the expected calibre? Are we geeks? This feels kid of geeky. Is this what we should be doing instead of watching the Euro cup?
What did you say about my mom?

ANOTHER one!

Hey, is it acceptable to swear in binary? It assumes only someone with half a brain can read it... 

"Krumlink loves robots a ton! He builds them every day that he has the chance to!"

I was at a machine without any programing environment so it took me a while until I realised... javascript!

var array = new Array(
'01001011',
'01110010',
...
);
var out = '';

for(var i=0; i<array.length; i++){
out += String.fromCharCode(parseInt(array[i], 2));
}
document.write(out) 

 

Yes. I agree. Java's not a programming environment. I did it in LabVIEW. I'm just sorry you got there first. I was too busy building robots. Here's my solution:
