    you need a published schedule to ensure nobody's military freaks out at the sight of a possible ICBM launch, that there are no low orbit satellites in the way, and so on. And you need countries that trust that it...

    Having actually worked with some of the folks that designed Concorde I’m fairly confident that use of computers was rather low, bordering on none. Based on the dates I suspect the Concorde folks did a lot of batch number crunching...

    I remember comic Alan King telling a story about flying from NYC to LAX to host an awards show and his luggage didn't get removed from the plane. He said something about his tuxedo having a fine two-week vacation in...

    I have heard the same but have not seen a proper reverse engineering of firmware/binaries. (Probably personal ignorance.[1]) There are plenty of disturbing hints, but the whole matter/area is swirling with agendas (nation-state, commercial, investor) and misinformation. When the firmware...

    heteromeles Is there a way to get in touch with out about some development issues/questions? I don't see a contact link on your web page....

    The US behavior re Huawei has been very odd. That thought crossed my mind too. (I've similarly wondered about their handsets.) ... There are old rumors about Chinese equipment (not consumer/IOT) with backdoors, at least 10 years old. I never...

    They've done versions with atomic clocks on jets vs synchronized clocks on the ground. IIRC, the ones on the (very fast) jets "lost time" with respect to those that stayed on the ground. Satellite based GPS has to take this...

    Solid state distributor? Why? Because they last nearly forever in terms of a car. No tuning, replacing points, condensers, etc... I've not had the need for my timing light / dwell meter in 20+ years. And none of the cars...

    Fortunately, it's a runner, so it'll be my "practice" restoration. Need a timing light and dwell meter? Been sitting on a shelf for 25 years. Hate to throw away working stuff. And the timing light has that great chrome ray...

    And if you want to land, that adds another level of complexity. Can't be that hard. I saw the movie Interstellar and they had us figuring it out in the very near future. [sarcasm off]...

    temperate rain forest ... Alas, the only one I spent much time visiting was caught up in the inferno that hit Australia last month. There is the area of big trees in Northern CA that I thought you drove through....

    Biden is more of the "same old" - though I simply cannot see how anyone remotely near sane could possibly vote for DT under any circumstances. Look at the results of your last election and tell me again why what...

    She also talked in a way that made many not so rich folks think she'd make them poor. This is a US election for president. Emotions matter. Facts not so much. Warren in central PA? That's a hard sell. And...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    Nice theory, but the polls have consistently contradicted it. For the four years of the Trump Presidency, Sanders has almost always polled as a clear victor over Trump at the ballot box, as he did in 2016 for that matter....
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    You need to take your ideological glasses off. There as many if not more who would vote for Biden against DT but vote for DT if it DT vs.Warren or Sanders. The middle gang of voters in the US last...

    The problem is that most of the rights were created a century ago, and who owns them now doesn't map very well to where people are living now or what they're doing with the water, hence the water wars. It...

    Yes. We run into this more and more on various situations. Heaven forbid you have a private cert on a site. They will try and scare to death any visitor....

    Do you mean the Central Valley? I'm guessing not exactly, if only because that leaves out the Bay Area and Los Angeles mega-cities. Yes. I meant the Central Valley becomes it's own state....

    but most seemed to be fleeing the political climate as much as the weather. THAT bad? I assume Ohio has gone full-on Trump/Fascist/Confederate/Slaver? Nothing like a bit of hyperbole to get an argument running hot. Ohio, like several big area...

    There's an international treaty governing the Colorado River water What does it matter if the amount of water crossing the border is too small to measure most decades?...

    What, you think I shouldn't like cold weather, and long hard freezes? We are not all uniformly built robots. I sweat a lot. And have a naturally low blood pressure and heart rate. I get out in cold weather and...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    A lot of people are still coming to California from places like Ohio or Michigan because they hate the political climate back home and can't find jobs there anyway. .... Who'd want to live in Ohio anyway, when they can...

    How much does it cost to make a household thermally efficient? Sure you easily could pay $20k just on reverse cycle air-conditioning equipment for a large house. Putting the same into insulation, double glazing, air sealing, active ventilation with minimal...

    This was before my time but I can relate. Everyone who's ever worked customer service has met people who deserved having their luggage sent to Hong Kong or Zanzibar... Back in the early 80s I read a story of someone...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    Every few years there's a news story about someone getting on the wrong plane and not discovering the problem until too late. I did it back in the early 80s. My boss's fault though. We were flying to Boston, then...

    Fictionally, I once needed a character's luggage delayed for story reasons so hauled out a list of airport codes; it was plausible that a busy sorter could confuse LHR (London Heathrow) with LAR (Laramie, Wyoming). Not so much for a...

    you still get severely tracked by the WaPo? The US news paper industry made some really bad mistakes a couple of decades ago and lost their source of income. Classified ads went to Craigslist for free instead of $25 for...
