Looks like these estimates were way too low.

"The worst hit areas saw more than 24 inches in Mount Pleasant, nearly 20 inches in areas around Charleston and more than 18 inches in the Gills Creek area of Columbia SC"


... with much more rain is still expected to fall until Tuesday.

Keeping this thread random, and to my hex character I was chasing earlier today with no guide. Needle in a haystack scanning the file kept crashing a process that converts it to xml.

Interesting short read on a car related subject. Funny how every time I've watched a middle east ISIS related news clip I've thought about the brand in it.

The Cal .50 platform almost looks like a factory supplied option.

I don't understand why people are upset with Toyota, for ISIS using their trucks. Most of the pictures I have seen are old beat up pickups. Toyota didn't go out of their way to sell to ISIS. Old Toyota pickups are just easy to work on and reliable, so they just naturally end up in third world countries. ISIS probably just stole them all as they have conquered territory.

Not to mention the fact that Toyota kept making those trucks long after they were discontinued in the US.
Maybe I'll put a turret on Don...

I could care less what brand of truck they use. Personally, I think it's a damn innovative way to weaponize something.

What I'm baffled about though is with all the computerization of vehicles and weapon systems why don't they just put a remote destruct circuit in stuff. Bad guys steal your tanks... Oh well, doesn't work anymore.

If you have a remote destruct then it sucks when the bad guys steal the remote destruct code.

During my military years (05-10), I was a crewchief on the most technologically advanced version of the MH60 at that time.
Part of the protocol for crash landing in enemy territory was to take the crash axe to the computers and monitors after impact.

But how much could you actually destroy with just an axe? Seems like there would be a lot left over.

Yes. Thinking about that as I was typing.

Maybe we could ask Volkswagen for help with the software... They made it a few years.

I just came here to say I am way proud of my domestic shorthair. Someone let her out of the house yesterday and when I went to let her in she spied a mouse about to run into the house. She caught in about four seconds which was impressive to me because she is declawed.

Why not just make critical hardware require the periodic entry of a validation "key" to continue operating (avoid crippling). The period could be adjusted to suit the vulnerability.

I take it you aren't familiar with software development?

Regardless of the "laws" of the system, it's still barely controlled chaos.
