Pron

Admit it, *every* one of these techs will be used primarily for pron or at the very least some related form of sexual activity.

Knots per hour

since a knot is one nautical mile per hour, then a knot per hour is: one nautical mile per hour per hour - which would be a measure of acceleration.

Quite sluggish really - kinda like me without coffee

China's 'stealth fighter' flies – brown trouser time, or not?

Pan Narrans

re: I would beg to differ

Is the Su-TAKPA the same as the PAK-FA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PAK-FA)? Because the 400 or so PAK-FAs being built by Russia and India will be what the J-20 is intended to counter (though my money's on the Sukhoi there should they ever tangle).

To those who say "Raptor Rules All" - I say "pride goeth before the fall". Depending on who you listen to, the PAK-FA could well come as a very nasty surprise to the F-22. Kopp's analysis (http://ausairpower.net/APA-2010-01.html) makes for interesting reading at least.

Page says "America is my sugar daddy" and Kopp says "oh noes! Russian fighters!". Take the average of both perspectives and you might find some reality.

So in short, dismiss the Chinese and Russian efforts at your peril. They might just be more capable than we think.

heart attack

I heard elsewhere that some guy watching it had a heart attack. Am I a bad person for finding that funny?

A couple of notes:

1. next time he should hold a online auction for the right to choose which action gets played.

2. what would it take to have this done all over Canberra?

Nuclear Lotto

I remember way back when I was a young man (the nineties) there was a fuss down here in little old NZ about a US missle test that could hit us. A comedy show called it Nuclear Lotto - the game where you wake up in the middle of the night and exclaim "what the f**k was that?!?"

DDoS attack rains down on Amazon cloud

DDOS is nothing compared to official incompetence

scary:

http://berkeleyclouds.blogspot.com/2009/04/cloud-computing-law-enforcement-and.html

in short: the FBI was investigating someone. Went to their (cloud) host and took the entire data centre down. Several other companies who just happened to be using the same host went out of business.

The moral: many baskets. Not just different data centres, use different companies (and have copies somewhere you can physically get to them). In fact if you can, host your systems on different planets.
