WHat the hell does spell-check have to do with being in the army?

That's all I'm asking for --a little spell-check once in a while.

What costs the most is those Billion dollar spy planes, that cost so much they're too scared to actually use them.

Seems smart to just get 300 PS3's over some $14k server x 300 of them lol.

Excuse me if I'm wrong, but the navy owns the aircraft carriers.

So instead of buying from Sony (foreign) instead of IBM (domestic) helps us spend more domestically?

I do think that buying PS3's is a better idea than the IBM servers, $120,000 beats $750,000 or whatever 300 Cell setups would cost.

Sorry,
I thought he was being picked on for speaking up as an Army soldier. I totally misunderstood and I do apologize.

And usually the airforce doesn't fly off aircraft carriers either. The navy uses their F18s and helis. AF flies out of bases most of the time.

I'd bet a PS3 that they're just outfitting their break rooms with them. Or they're pimping out their planes for those long, boring missions.

What they need to do is give some of there bugit to the U.S. Army. The USAF houseing and bases are so much better than owers.
Except it's cheap as hell compared to an IBM setup.
