Florida Amendment #1 -- LOL, just watched the utility backed "Solar for Florida" commercial totting how voting "Yes" to Amendment 1 would make solar energy easier for all.

It will do the exact opposite! It is widely considered a deliberate attempt by utilities to erect barriers to competition and prevent third-party leasing of solar. Utility companies have given most of the almost $22 million being poured into the amendment campaign.

Ordered mine from Newark!  
Have no idea:
(1) What I'm going to use it for
(2) When I'll have time to play with it

I might try running XBMC on it, original Pi was just too slow.

1) More than $25 billion was spent on the Apollo program (20+ launches/tests flights/actual moon landings) , which would be considered more than $100 billion in today's currency. Most of this sum went toward designing and building the spacecraft, rockets and systems needed to land men on the moon and return them home safely. And we did it in 9 years...
2) The "new" Orion program won't be operational until 2020 and the first 2 flights are estimated to cost $19-22 billion.  This is 16 years after the project was announced.

I would think that it shouldn't take that long and cost that much to do something we've already done.

Silly me for thinking that.
