LabVIEW in the movies

Highlighted

I came up with this idea while answering a recent post from someone named "Clint Eastwood"

 

Take a movie quote.  Now, change one or two words to reference LabVIEW.  For example:

 

 

"Go ahead.... Make my day" --> "Go ahead .... Make my VI"

 

 "These aren't the droids we're looking for" --> "These aren't the VI's we're looking for"

 

"It's alive!" --> "It's a VI"  (my current favorite)

 

Anybody got any contributions?

I'm saying it because it's true.  Inside the loop, we both know you belong with LabVIEW.  You're part of his work, the thing that keeps him going. 

 

If that project leaves the ground and VIs are not a part of it, you'll regret it. 

 

Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of the project's life.

Found another I couldn't resist. 

 

 

There's nothing more exhilarating than pointing out the shortcomings of other development eviroments, is there?

Randal Graves: But, I love LabVIEW, isn't it ironic?

 

Randal Graves:  This program would be great if it wasn't for the fu**ing local variables.

LabVIEW, the final frontier.  These are the versions of the National Instruments.  Its copyrighted mission, to seek out new pc's, new software, to boldly test what has never been tested before!
