No no no Subby. MITT ROMNEY/KARL ROVE (codenamed MIT ROV by their secret service handlers) were beaten in 2012. Paul Ryan was just a stand-in for the election; once Romney was installed at the White House, Ryan would stand aside for the power duo of MIT ROV.

Until those peskey kids at the DNC ruined it for everyone.

Marisa Tomei.  So this is the old square white woman gets minority underachievers to achieve story?

We're down to robots now?

Not out of white guilt yet?

Sigh :( I wish.

Interesting CSB time. One of our handling system software writers is working on an occulus rift style 3d camera for ROV's to assist in the always present depth perception issue of using flat screen monitors to manipulate things in a 3d world. He was able to get the occulus rift working quite well and it was a beautiful picture, but the pilot still needs his eyes on his controls so the technology is still a little ways off. I can't wait for a hud style overview to be implemented but that will be a long ways down the road (if ever). Most companies don't like to pay for technology that might make our jobs a little easier when what we currently use gets the job done.
