For the exchange of an unweaponized F35-C (free delivery) and two trucks full of fuel (including the trucks), I could give them some names. Just have to maybe make a slit into my barn so the vertical stabilizer fits in. Payment first of course.

Can it start on a gras field or better use vertical takeoff?

If you´re allowed to say (and not lying in your previous post), nothing was outsourced in terms of the sensor systems etc?
Because I imagine, for all the special systems you have to know your #.

However, even the most reputable software companies new products are often wrought with bugs,


Windows Vista is a good example of that.

That's just sad but glad to see you are working at a better place for you.

question....I worked in IT up to 2006, and a lot of chips even back then were manu'd in foreign countries....could someone be altering code before the chips are installed on finished product circuit boards?...we've done it, so why not someone else/

Several years ago there were questions about Chinese made chips being used by the military. There may be a thread here.

A microchip used by the US military and manufactured in China contains a secret "backdoor" that means it can be shut off or reprogrammed without the user knowing, according to researchers at Cambridge University's Computing Laboratory.

UPDATE: However, one security consultancy has said that the implication that the backdoor might have been secretly inserted by the Chinese manufacturer is "bogus", and that malicious intent is unlikely.
...
However, Robert Graham, of US security consultancy Errata Security, wrote yesterday that the backdoor is unlikely to have been added maliciously. He claims that the entry route discovered by Skorobogotov is likely to be a debugging tool deliberately installed by the manufacturer.

There are many other articles out there. I don't think this is the only case.

I worked for Lockheed for four years (software engineer). We weren't writing the most cutting edge software, but there were very few talented engineers that I came across at that company. I went to Amazon after that and basically started my career from scratch because I learned very little at Lockheed about how to actually be a software engineer. I had four years "experience", but people at Amazon with one year experience knew a lot more than me. I look back at my code at Lockheed and realize how #ing terrible it was, and that there was no one on my team who was able to mentor me or give me actual design guidance in code reviews.


Could you elaborate more on specifics? PM me if you want.

I'm working at a company likely in between LMT and Amazon in code quality and I want to get better. For a physicist, I'm a great software engineer, but.... that's not the same thing
