Own Your Own Fighter Jet 222

gimmebeer writes "The Russian Sukhoi SU-27 has a top speed of Mach 1.8 (more than 1,300 mph) and has a thrust to weight ratio greater than 1 to 1. That means it can accelerate while climbing straight up. It was designed to fight against the best the US had to offer, and now it can be yours for the price of a mediocre used business jet."

Actually it's still up.


About a month after the shutdown, it was turned into an open/free network with no tech support or guarantees. Turns out that it's a lot cheaper to run a network when all you have to do is keep it up and not support the end users, collect payment, process signups, etc. I like it this way better. What EarthLink was running only cost a little less than Comcast and Verizon, so I didn't see much point to it.
