AWOL

We need to help these guys out.
I'm sure they need a few Arduinos, maybe with MP3 shields to play that "pshheee" noise, when the doors open.

We certainly need some split infinitives.

You laugh, but it appears they've already departed the solar system, and taken their webserver with them.

Now I need to find out how to adjust Mozilla's timeout to compensate for interstellar latency...

thats sad. I really was hoping that they at least give it a shot...

Even worse, they left the WordPress install sort of intact. It looks as if anyone could create a wp-config file there now. Looks completely unsecured to me.

How many Arduinos would it take to run an LCARS interface? Maybe liudr can get started on that.

Their main engine is 1.5GW, so they can time travel with a flux capacitor at 88 miles per hour, if they can make a car speedometer work in outer space. There was a school project that created a website about Mankato MN, including whale watching etc. saying whales swim up the river to southern Minnesota in the middle of USA and can be seen every year. After they launched the site, people from out of the state actually visited the city hoping to see whales.

Build it, and they will come.

What an amazing amount of effort put into that site, great reading.

Will the hardware and software be open source, I didn't see it mentioned.

Hypothetically the ship gets constructed and worked. They started their warp drive and were spotted by nearby Vulcan ship and greeted by them. Then the Vulcans asked this exact question and the response was "Well, wealthy corporates own all patents and secrets". Vulcans all left thinking this race was not worth their share of knowledge. I think this might convince them to go open source.  :smiley-mr-green:

Is that before or after a Klingon Bird of Prey delivers the humpback to Mankato?

Ah I see, they plan to use the new hypothetical drive, that will leave the Klingons for dead.
