I'm not sure why this is being down-voted because this is exactly what will happen.

We'll see much more of companies with their core competency senior management on staff only.

Basically Senior managers, VPs, President, CEO, etc.

Everyone else will be contracted in, or 1099 (which is already quite common).

Comment Totally wrong (Score 5, Informative) 291

In cutting edge games, FPS still suffers even at low resolutions.

Many users are going to multi-monitor setups to increase their visualization and even cutting edge graphics cards cannot handle gaming at 1920x1080 x 3 display setups on taxing games or applications (e.g. Crysis).

I have never seen a real college campus served by a Cisco 3945.

I have seen plenty of branch offices and banks with using Cisco 3800 series devices, the 3945 predecessors.

Whether or not the device was overpaid for is a different question - I wouldn't be surprised if they used some 8A competition limiting factors that jacked up prices, or, if it included the actual installation and smartnet maintenance costs.

Comment Transfer it to NOAA? (Score 1) 71

Why not transfer it to NOAA's Satellite Service (NESDIS)?

NOAA's Office of Satellite and Product Operations ( ) in NESDIS is fully capable and staffed for performing 24/7 satellite operations of production systems, or older NASA research satellites. Unlike a private initiative, OSPO is already paid for by the american people, and makes the data available to everyone.
