it cant work that way, for instance as i said my dad is in quality and has to basically chaperon an interceptor system from the factory, till its in the ground in whatever location. Well when he is doing his checks to verify that things meet the requiremnts and has to verify a document he doesnt have, his secure connection allows him to access the information he needs to verify what needs to be verified. Planning ahead is great, but when things come up it is not feasible to push a deadline back waiting for files to be delivered when you spend all that money on an encrypted fully secure VPN tunnel for that very reason.

It always surprises me that no one has figured that out.

I wonder if you could turn the Hubble into a really powerful sun/magnifying glass combo

I see what you're saying ...

It seems more of a convenience thing, as I use an internal network and could just copy reports, spreadsheets, presentations, emails and whatever to my laptop and head out.

The convenience factor would be that you could update files on the internal network remotely...you wouldn't have to come back and replace every file you updated while away.

they got all sorts of neat tracking software out now.

tracks your login times.
files you access etc.
permissions on how you can access stuff. read/write/modify/save local/save remote/print etc.

vpn coupled with a smart card reader and security certificates on the laptop make for some secure computing.

hey Zaph, also 1 more thing.


so i remember back a while ago you were talking to people about if the things they saw might have been some of these new birds in the sky. Well about 6 months ago, the night i was moving in my my new house and my dad was helping me pack, i look up in the sky just after dusk and wham, there it is, a dark grey silouheete of what looked like a B2 but with a different AFT section/shape than a standard B2. i literally started freaking out and saying dad i just saw one of the new bombers... (it looked JUST like the NGB concept we see online) he just looked at me, shrugged his shoulders, and ignored my questions for the rest of the night....

any of these new birds flying over northern utah, i live in ogden utah, just north of SLC. This thing was COMPLETELY silent.... and it has stuck in my mind ever since.

what you saw was not the new bomber, it was something else, hint: no pilot required.

well northrup did just open up a brand new shop in the ogden airport where adams aircraft went out of business a couple years ago...... there have actually been some pretty cool military planes there the last month. i dont know if they are doing some R&D stuff or what, but there has been a couple C-17's parked there overnight as well as some Leer jets for im guessing big whigs flying in and parking at the little hanger there quite a bit.

Been that way a lot. Saw the new Falcon Hill building last time we went by. We spent some time in a motel right down the street from the NG facility early this year.

I sent you a way to have some fun back in a U2U.

I remember it, from looking at my dad's Tom Clancy book covers as a preschooler in the late-80s (I was a precocious child, what can I say?).

Anyways, I believe the cover of "The Cardinal in the Kremlin" depicted such a ground-based, orbiting mirror-steered system, as that was what the Soviets were believed to have been deploying in the Urals at the time.

There's an unmanned, and a manned platform that fit your description. The manned is rather interesting, but is a lot quieter than the bomber or unmanned platforms.
