Smacking Oracle across the face with a Gauntlet.

By Jaqui ·
sent an email to their Corporate Citizenship contact person just now.

This is a suit that Oracle needs to lose you know.
If Oracle was to win a suit that Google's use of Java for the Android phone OS infringed on Oracle's Intellectual Property, it would DESTROY any claim that Java is "open source" or that Java can be used on an open source operating system.

It will be the death knell for Java.
as much as I would like to see that bloated garbage language destroyed, it will kill your whole I.P. chain by winning.

not a very bright decision if you want Java to be used much on the GROWING Free Software / Open Source Software operating systems.

and for your information, my low opinion of Java is well known among many IT Professionals around the world. I recently reposted my reasons on a personal blog:

Maybe Oracle will lose their love affair with the garbage language when / if they were to read that entry.

maybe I should go to and send it to them as well ]:)

NO Liner Induction Motors

Used to Propel Gaumtlets are far more effective.

But you have to get the receiver to stand in the right place and not move.

Well at least with the Liner Induction Motor that i have in mind it's only 32 miles long uses the output of the 12 Biggest power stations in the world and only projects the Gauntlet to .99998 of Light Speed.

No helmet in the world is going to save Pally now. :^0

um, Col

the image I have of a rail gun is exactly that, with the linear induction motors lining a rail to send the projectile along the specified path.

edit to add:

you don't really aim one of them, unless you set up multiple end points and have the starting point on a turntable to line up with the end point to hit the target you want.

riight, the Hal9000 unit knows it can't kill me so wouldn't bother.
it ay be an unbalanced entity, but it wouldn't waste effort trying to kill the unkillable.
