Small stuff, but it's getting closer.

Will be hard to get your sea time on them.


Guess it will be called something like; manned computer control time. Which time will be gained at the control centre where one would have arrived at in their driverless car to be assisted by a sound like "Alexa"


"Beam me up Scotty"
I'm glad I am the age I am and had the best of the good and sometimes not so good times as a seafarer.
Perhaps the sailing ship men thought the same about us, most likely they did.
Think the young ones of today and tomorrow are going to miss the nicer things in life having their eyes glued to phone and computer screens for most of their awake time.

Re : Hackers
As our engineering colleagues would say : 'If someone can build it, I can take it apart' so it shouldn't be long.
