Talend.com offers Talend Open Studio - a great free software product for flow-based visual programming, based on Eclipse.
I used it for projects for 5 years and was amazed, how easy to make complex data transformation by dragging and dropping components and links.
A result is a java (or Perl) program, which can run standalone.
The program is a visual data flow, easy to modify and understand even for non-programmers.
I really appreciate Talend team effort and recommend this product for all, who need data transformations.

Okay.

I needed to go to the hospital, but the car wouldn't drive because it said I had a broken brake light
I missed my flight and lost my job, because the broken brake light detector was faulty
My car drove itself to the repair shop, and got a ticket for a broken brake light on the way
My car drove itself to the repair shop while I was indoors, and I came out to drive to the hospital and had no car

And, if you overrided that (by using manual handle logged by special insurance sealed registrator) and then on your way
near red light your car would have been rear-ended by a heavy truck, leaving you paraplegic, would you be happier?

Any time i hear about tornadoes and their damage, I think: why US military doesn't say a word in tornado prevention?
On most weather radars tornadoes and tornado-capable clouds are shown almost perfectly.
So why not
- fire missiles iodic argentum warheads to such clouds, forcing their rainfall.
- fire missiles with heavy warheads (conventional) to the already developed tornadoes?
