Ted Postol cannot be, even from being from MIT be considered a realable source for opinion. Postol has a large bias against anti-missle systems, which is down right dumb. The rockets are almost the size of small airplanes, but we don't consider anit-aircraft missles to be completely ineffecitive.

Another angle that has been missed and the FAA is really screwing up is having different rules for the same action. Somehow if you get paid for flying a model aircraft it is now against the rules. Good example brought up on RC forums.
Examples would be:
1) Sponsored pilots.
2) Competitions with cash prizes.
3) You get paid to build RC aircraft.
4) Pilots that get paid to come fly at events.

No the law says nothing about line of sight. Your full of shit.
No the AMA(Academy of Model Aeronautics) is also going against the rule. Another case of a slashdot reader who didn't actually read the article.
"The FAA interpretive rule effectively negates Congress' intentions, and is contrary to the law. Section 336(a) of the Public Law states that, 'the Federal Aviation Administration may not promulgate any rule or regulation regarding a model aircraft', this interpretive rule specifically addresses model aircraft, effectively establishes rules that model aircraft were not previously subject to and is in direct violation of the congressional mandate in the 2012 FAA reauthorization bill."

    "AMA cannot support this rule." said AMA Executive Director Dave Mathewson. "It is at best ill-conceived and at worst intentionally punitive and retaliatory. The Academy strongly requests the FAA reconsider this action. The AMA will pursue all available recourse to dissuade enactment of this rule."

Comment: Common at colleges for shared computers. (Score 2) 564

When I worked in the IT in my work study program, shared computers would be re-imaged often. We would usally re-image 300-400 computers at time. Often it was just some professor wanting certain program, it was just easier and safer just to wipe the machines. Malware was big problem at the time, sasser hit all of are computers, that sucked.

Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
