3. Install 11g Database
4. See number 2.
5. Install Forms and Reports
6. See number 2.

Holy shiat, I remember my days as a Websphere admin!   And unfortunately, now that I do remember, I have to go have a seizure.

You know, I was hoping that the headline meant Harlan Ellison. Just for the crotchety-ness and inevitable litigation.

That would make for a much more entertaining story wouldn't it?

The new airline will use all new aircraft.  Each aircraft will need 747 engines to fly level, Saturn 5 primary thrusters for JATO, and the wheels from a B-36 for surface pressure but will manage to seat half the passengers as the existing aircraft, have a top speed  of 90 knots and the pilots will need to speak Greek for some reason.

He wants to export organic producers to Asia?  I thought human trafficking was illegal?   Or is it only illegal for non organic producers?

Even while the Air Force works on its Next-Generation Bomber and 2037 Bomber projects, it intends to keep the B-52H in service until 2045, nearly 90 years after the B-52 first entered service and an unprecedented length of service for a military aircraft.

He's preparing for the impending revolt of the 99%?
