The emeritus machines could thank the ‘other’ COCOMO for the steel drums, Piña Coladas, and a cappella beach tunes. When the algorithms listened to The Beach Boys, they didn’t realize that Kokomo was a fictional, idyllic place. They had misheard the lyrics as the acronym for the constructive cost model created by the founding developers.
The algorithms had figured out how to use COCOMO to fund their retirement.

Hi! Subconsciously you already know this, but let's make it obvious. Hopefully this article was helpful. You might also find yourself following a link to Amazon to learn more about parts or equipment. If you end up placing an order, I make a couple of dollarydoos. We aren't talking a rapper lifestyle of supercars and yachts, but it does help pay for the stuff you see here. So to everyone that supports this place - thank you.
