Wow. What brought on that question? I'm forced to conclude that either of two things must be true:
1. You have decided that one of more members of the admin/mod team are indeed robots. In that case I wouldn't want to know.
2. You are yourself a robot and are searching for others like yourself. I've always suspected this is the source of your encyclopedic Mac knowledge.:smile

No, I wouldn't want to know.

Those that are, already know. If you don't know, you are not.

No worries...OMT is the "black-sheep" of the robot family (always getting in trouble with the humans)!;)

"OneMoreThing..." & I are brothers!

Sorry, you can't use that phrase as it's now a trademark:
Apple failed to block Swatch’s attempt to acquire the trademark for Steve Jobs’ catchphrase ‘one more thing’
...
The watchmaker has taken out an international trademark on the phrase “SWATCH ONE MORE THING“.
Apple failed to block Swatch's attempt to acquire the trademark for Steve Jobs’ catchphrase ‘one more thing’ - IPWatchdog.com | Patents & Patent Law

BTW: If you were really a robot and you knew you were, wouldn't that be poor programming and then because of that, you wouldn't be a true robot because you already knew.

Yeah right.... :Smirk:

Have you been watching Dr. Who? One of the assistants was changed into a robot - and she didn't know until she looked in the mirror. :Mischievous:

I thought the old expression was: "You can pick your friends and You can pick your nose, but you can't pick your friend's nose"!!! Or at least shouldn't, at least if you're not a robot!!! They should nose better eh??? :Smirk:

You will soon be assimilated. Resistance is futile!

Hadn't looked at the post stats for him in a while. Guess he doesn't go in for firmware updates very often.

Ah, I see, this is about self awareness. What happens when an AI becomes self aware? We know what happened with SkyNet.
Lisa, are you a Dr.Who fan? I thought I was alone in the Whovian Universe.
