    TFW I want to make a Japanese crossover in Automation, and am wondering whether to make a subcompact non-luxury one (C-HR/HR-V), a compact luxury one (UX/QX30) or a fullsize luxury one (above RX/QX60).

    My coworker and i accidentally locked the keys inside of a running 2018 Ford Edge ecoboost that was sitting in the wash bay. Not a good situation.
    We were able to get back into it in about 5 minutes via the inflated sack and bent metal rod method. Rolled the front passenger window down. Manager never even knew.

    I say my coworker and I because we'll never know who hit the lock button. We vacuumed and wiped down each half of the car respectively. After washing the exterior we realized the doors were locked.

    I would like to take a moment to reflect on the sorry state of cybersecurity research. The term "vulnerability" used to mean a way to gain unauthorized access to a system, while now it pretty much means "wacky thing that a team of Ph.D's could maybe do if they already have full, unfettered access to your systems." While researchers are digging around for things like advanced machine-learning-based exploits that require full admin access, I wonder how many IoT devices have undiscovered security holes in their firmware. Your smoke alarm could be mining Bitcoin or posting anti-semitic Youtube comments without your knowledge. I think that's a little more important than "theoretical corner case of obscure microarchitectural feature #12498."

    Also, I'm never buying Intel again, for obvious Ryzens-- I mean, reasons.

    maybe i'm a smoke alarm and my connection (life) is based on a static IP, and after 100 years or there abouts, the router does some DHCP magic and re allocates it's IP addresses and i lose connection, and a new connection is formed. (philosophical *shrug*)

    Also i only just got your joke and wow :p :p :p

    It may have locked itself. Some cars do that if all the doors are closed for a certain amount of time.

    My courtesy car definitely does, it also does so if you walk away from it with the keys, and makes a large beep sound to let you know it did you a favour.

    Yet to see what the new car will do. Won't get to pick it up til Tuesday

    I (theoretically) register my Jeep tomorrow. Taking it on a camping trip next week. I can't wait for that. Say what you want about traditional SUV's, the thing has so much room in it with the back seats down that I'm camping IN it, rather than transporting a tent with it.

    Still needs tires and an oil change. That'll all come in due time, though.

    Most newer cars seem to make it almost impossible to inadvertently lock the key fob in the car with the engine running. They don't ever lock themselves when stopped, and you can't lock the doors when they're open. But it still manages to happen.
    They were both on the ring in the console cupholder. It was only closed up when we washed the exterior, after quickly vacuuming and wiping the interior. It's easy to accidentally hit the lock button during that process, but the car won't lock.
    Me and my coworker have a combined 3 years experience of doing this and it's never happened to either of us. They say it's bound to happen to you eventually in car rental.
