The project is on time and under budget - the only problem is it may not work.

the aircraft that just lost power while trying to land at heathrow airport--after flying from china--wasn't that a new boeing?

i see that there is speculation that someone that was supposed to service the aircraft before its flight from china--somehow accessed the planes flight control computers and inserted a program change that activated when the pilots tried to land in england.

this computer here has been hacked 2or 3 times when trying to use it on the israelinsider website and i'm just a nobody---so no doubt boeing would have a lot more enemies to worry about than me.

Wow! 200 BILLION dollars! For a software program!

That has to be a pretty big program. I would really hate to debug that sucker. Think about how long it takes to load that program into memory?

As they say: fast, cheap, good. Pick any two.

I hope they are making good backups!
