Default I'll be alright

I recently came back from a road trip. On my way home I kept getting a ding ding ding from my car. Some times four dings followed by two dings, some times three dings. At one point my DIC read "I'll be alright". Anyone ever have this happen to them?

Never had that happen to me ... but, about a week ago while I was driving home late on night, the DIC started flashing the words "The End Is Coming"

I think you misread; it said "The mid engine is coming."

the voice activated calculator works great on mine.

Nothing like perfroming linear regression when taking a road trip.

Those dings were coming from the elevator, which apparently doesn't go to the top floor.

Ha! I wish I could remember some of those. Too lazy to Google.

Maybe it was: "Your mid-life crisis is over."

Turbo: I don't remember any ads (just during WWII?) I only remember the series of road signs with the catchy little poems.

Burma Shave has been around a long long time ... certainly during WWII and before.

I was not around during WWII, but in the early 60s, I remember seeing these signs along the various highways my dad would take us on.

It's obvious, they had a really big advertising budget.

Ah, crap, I've been trying to incorporate "programation" into my daily conversation and now you come up with "perfroming linear regression". I'm flummoxed. Discombobulated. Perplexed. Stymied. Two-blocked.

Well, google is my friend. Now I have a complete understanding of "perfroming linear regression":
linear regression is a linear approach to modelling the relationship between a scalar response and one or more explanatory variables. The case of one explanatory variable is called simple linear regression. For more than one explanatory variable, the process is called multiple linear regression. This term is distinct from multivariate linear regression, where multiple correlated dependent variables are predicted, rather than a single scalar variable.
