Congrats to both EY and the Deis team. This, along with the news of the round of funding for Docker, continues to solidify the case for using the platform and ecosystem!

-----


Wonder if this can be used over Ukraine/Crimea?

-----


I am pretty certain that's exactly what CIA is doing right now, but using their own spy satellite constellation.

-----


We're still flying U-2s, which, along with certain drones, are far better observation platforms for real-time needs.

-----


It's a mixed bag of emotions, funny, sad, amazed, that the USA is still flying the U2. Which is from the 60's, while the SR-71, the plane meant to replace it has already been decommissioned for over a decade now.

-----


Just FYI, all the U-2s that are flying now were built in the 80s and feature numerous advances over the original generation of U-@s. I agree about the SR-71, I too have a soft spot for that plane. There is rumor of an SR-72 but AFAIK it's still on the drawing board.

someone is always watching ;)

Paid for with Afghan Heroin.

You wouldn't use drug money for spy satellites, they're happily paid for by Congress. Drug money's for stuff you don't want tied back to the organization - assassinations, corruption, etc.

-----


That's right. see: The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade by Alfred W. McCoy for more details.

Oh I have a feeling they can do even better than that.

-----


I think this would be amazing if it were solar-powered. In Florida when we have hurricanes, we are without power sometimes for weeks. This could easily be sold en mass to disaster-relief workers, or even for consumers who want that kind of backup for during and after disasters.

-----


One of the higher kickstarter levels includes solar panels, so I'm guessing it is possible.

-----


This could also be a cool way to remote pair, no?

-----


Just submitted a pull request to Homebrew to have this added. Can't wait :-)

-----


I'd definitely look at rbenv. Combined with it's plugin ruby-install, you've got a pretty simple and powerful alternative to rvm. I use it exclusively.

-----


rbenv is definitely better than rvm, but if you use the same ruby version between all your projects, a single version of ruby installed through homebrew is a much better way to go.

-----


Is it just me, or is it ironic that this site is currently unavailable?

-----


It's just you. What does visualizing tweets have to do with high availability?

-----


would be nice to have a website for "tweetping traffic in real time(as it gets hit by HN)"

-----


the author is working on it, more you are, more he will improve perf.

-----


386-DX was my first PC. This is incredibly sad, even more so because it makes me realize I'm getting old!

-----


I remember my first Gateway 2000 / 486 DX2 Tower. They computer was so big, all of my friends were envious.

-----


OH NO SHE DIDNTTTTTT

-----


What else is new?
