Hey, sorry for the delay, but a combination of circumstances is slowing me down on the next page.  I’m working on it, though!   Be done soon!

Well, for those who suspected and theorized, this is the proof – with Mike and Sarah, the connection goes both ways.  And for everyone wondering about the “Phalanx” turrets last week, it’s really just the last line of defense.  The UNA actually calls them CRADS, pronounced “See-Rads,” meaning Close Range Area-Defense System, a component of the CBM or Counter-Ballistic Missile defense system, which in spite of its name also is useful against cruise missiles, TERCOM (terrain-contour-matching) weaponry, and aircraft.  As this page shows, guided interceptor vehicles are the long-range component.  And they all need a very good computer to guide them.


Yeah, long weeks are going to be the name of the game for me for the foreseeable future, but I’m still chugging along, here.  But I am working on some interesting little things here and there, and we’ll see what becomes of them over time!  For now, sleep.  O yes, sleep.  All the best, folks!
