Just watch out for the escarpment at the bottom. At as much as 8km high, that first step is a doozy.
True, but these guys are in Colorado. We get maybe a dozen cloudy or hazy days a year. And it's a semi-desert, no muggy days.
Yeah, it might not work so well in the Mississippi valley region.
OTOH, if they're shifting to a frequency of infrared not absorbed by H2O, it might not care about puny water vapour.
A warehouse full of dead monitors will not just sit there "forever".
In related news, a recent excavation in an Egyptian pyramid has turned up a trove of what appear to be ancient CRTs.
The language grew out of a personal project by Mozilla employee Graydon Hoare, who stated that the project was possibly named after the rust family of fungi. Mozilla began sponsoring the project in 2009 and announced it in 2010. The same year, work shifted from the initial compiler (written in OCaml) to the self-hosting compiler written in Rust. Known as rustc, it successfully compiled itself in 2011. rustc uses LLVM as its back end.
However, I'll grant that LLVM is written in C++.
Or, "that's between me and the IRS".
But, does shit float in cream?
Enquiring minds want to know.
What if you can't reach the kill switch?
It should be a voice command that it's always listening for, like the "Alexa" or "Siri" words on those devices. It could be, oh, I dunno, "Freeze motor functions!"
Although on second thoughts, that might not work out so well...
But I'm still holding out for scrith.
If that's all you're doing, blanks with a BFA work fine (mostly).
Although you still leave a ton of brass lying around.

I'd swear to God that I smell pot.
But who'd have pot here in Vietnam?

Two telephone books (do they even print those anymore?) will (just) stop a 9mm. That's FMJ -- and a reasonably large metropolitan area telephone book. Even a
Military rifle ammo won't stop for much short of a couple of railroad ties. (The old standard for 7.62mm NATO and similar was that it had to penetrate a steel helmet at 1000 yards. Modern 5.56mm (.223) stuff is a little wimpier -- but will still easily go through a car door at close range.)
You might want to read up on how aircraft navigated before GPS (and still do, to some extent). In addition to ATC beacons, RDF (radio direction finding) off of commercial AM broadcasting stations was and is a thing. Triangulating from two isn't that hard for a human, it's a trivial task for a computer. Good luck overriding the signals from a few multi-kilowatt commercial broadcast towers.
Yeah, those. Of which original poster cites several examples of prior art.
I also recall a fictional article in Galaxy SF magazine back in the 1968, "The Warbots", written and illustrated by Larry Todd.

He can't. Not of the US anyway, not without a Constitutional Amendment. He's African-American.
He's doing fine right where he is, anyway.
Time to take stock. Go home with some office supplies.
