    Default REDACTED!

    Redacted, Redacted, Redacted, while talking to redacted, got redacted info about redacted redacted photonic redacted in quantum redacted made me very happy...

    Cue MP3 of James Brown...

    I feel good, da na na na...
    So good,
    So fine,
    So nice....

    And I have not yet begun to redact,

    Take a look at page 2-4 of this, found in another forum I enjoy...

    http://www.governmentattic.org/4docs...uters_1986.pdf

    Lessons from the masters...

    1 Ghz computing prototype in about 1976, not bad...... That would really predate the 250 watt 200 Mhz ECL 8051 data sheet in a 198os Intel data book I have.

    Data books, that thing before PDF...

    And Mom made it through her surgery today, so I am happy about more then one thing.

    And no, you are not ment to find one bit of sense in this post,,,,

    ..yah, and you prolly should 'redact' that statement, before it gets logged, cached, profiled, and IP ID'd... you're already 'down one' from the glassware-posts, and I'd really hate to log in one day, and have to go "... uh, hey... where's fle???...'

    A computer picked those words from a list of the most disused words in the English lexicon, based on a random noise source.

    It would probably be a service in the agency, you call, make a appointment, walk to some place in the basement, turn a selector switch to the type of word you want, press a button, and some one who does not know who you are hands you a envelope with a new codeword.

    At least that is how I'd do it.

    In reality, for hardware, I think the word is picked to help you remember what the project is. Not that I would know, but that is how we did stuff at the University.

    OK, this post started as a conspiracy of one.

    I was kinda hoping to bait electr@frea% into coming back. I have mixed feelings about the fellow's attitude, but I kinda have a bad feeling about seeing so many people go nuts in the middle of Great Recession II. I was setting in the waiting room watching some one else with similar symptoms. There was another line attached, addressed to him. However I deleted it.

    That may be why I deleted that part of the post.

    ya, everything wasn't made in china, we actually innovated things etc... what strange and alien concepts!!!

    I did enjoy the lessons learned

    "keep politics out of the development cycle"

    amazing that 24 years later we still haven't kept politics out of computer related stuff, even at my company
