I'm guessing that he was trying to imply that he was knocked offline by a DDOS attack, to raise the humor factor. I remember using 300 baud modems, and frequently seeing the No Carrier message when someone would pick up the phone (yes, we used real wires to connect our phones to the phone company, and they were hooked up in parallel within a home, so picking up the phone in the other room would knock you offline).

I don't believe for a moment that $34 Billion is being bid for 65 megahertz of spectrum; I suspect there is an error somewhere here. Could it be somewhere closer to 65 Gigahertz?
I found that you can still get to the files, after closing the Username/password dialog box. I went as far as hitting a download link (http://cd3wd.com/mdownloads/100352_wfs_/100352_wfs_.7z.2794.zip), and a dialog box asked what to do with the file (Windows dialog box, not from the website). I didn't actually save the file on the thin client that I am working from, but it looks like it should work.
I would think that she would have a strong case against the DEA (or the agent(s) using her identity, because very few people will trust that she is who she says she is (online). They are very effectively destroying her status/reputation/life. I believe that the DEA actions are a crime, at multiple levels.
I was surprised to see that they are using the open source method of developing software now, relying on lots of eyeballs to find bugs. They can't call it open source development, so it's an Open Beta, but it looks an awful lot like the open source method to me.
I sounds like big (physical) networks, with very few users (although it could be _very_ useful at times of emergency).
I want to see the Horizontal launch facilities.
No, that would be the Air Force in this case.
I think the research part is what is costing $300 Million; just to maintain the grounds/buildings would most likely be the $5 million per year.
I followed the link, and it is very light on details. For $1600, this had better be a super camera.
My experience with silicone oil was that it was very _thin_, and tended to try to creep out of its containers (lubricant for the heads on a drum recorder, back in the 70's and 80's). We weren't using it for heat transfer, just lubrication, and used cotton wicks to pull the oil out of the tray and apply it to the drum (no pump required).

I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned that this sounds suspiciously like the business model of Radio. It will be interesting to see if they have the ability to keep track of where to send all the checks, unless they have a very small playlist.
I would have guessed that it was closer to 21.3 TB. If it's only 21.3 GB, I could store a couple copies on my computer at home.
