Actually you analogy is really flawed. First of all USPS is not a municipality service. It's a federal one.

Secondly,UPS/FedEx have not really indicated they can't get along with USPS. Tather, USPS has given all sorts of indication it cannot get along with UPS/FedEx.

Hypocricy? No.
For all those who are going to argue this point: keep in mind, States cannot declare bankrupcy, but counties, cities and other subdivisions can.

Should states be able to tell municipalities, that they can't run a broadband service? Should states be allowed to tell cities they can't run acity sponsered colleges? What about allowing states to force farmers to charge more for food leaving the state?

I don't know where the line is I don't care. What I would wish to see is simply nationwide local loop unbundling. That is entirely legal for the FCC to impose.

Many projects predate Agile. Apache, the linux kernel, FreeBSD kernel, all the relational databases, the basic GNU utilities, X, perl and python.

The open source projects I've seen have not been developed by the Agile techniques, granted I've only seen a few. So I give Agile proponents the chance to provide some. Instead I probably find the reason it is called Agile in the first place. It's proponents are Agile atg spreading bullshit.

So cut the crap and list a few projects. Oh and make sure to show where in their repositories the unit tests are.

...uses Agile.

not some subproject of a subproject, but a real project.
AFAIK no such thing exists, but if it did it could be analysed.

Frankly every time I down load a project I don't see any unit tests for examples. Code is written by one person.

I consider Agile a major failure, not in that it was a bad failure, but it took up all the oxygen from other iterative processes like RUP, and has reduced the progress of design overall.

You three morons do realize that the Hadley Climate Research Center is based in the UK and that in 2001 they did say that the UK would see little snow?

Had you thought back to 2001 you would remember the stories, which were plentiful.

You do realize that the person you are trashing is obviously British?
And fairly accurate in his statement.

Don't hit the keys so hard, it hurts.
