Somewhere Near The Lincoln Memorial... PART 2

Over the past few days, a lot of Military and Civilian workers were asked to sacrifice their time to support a "Dog and Pony" show on the National Mall. For that, and many other things, I say thank you.

As for the "Dog and Pony" show, now I understand why historical markers near my hometown point out that Benedict Arnold planned to give up West Point and the nearby Stewart Airfield to the British during the Revolutionary War (snicker) #RevolutionaryWarAirportStories.

It is 100 seconds to midnight OR Inside the two-minute warning

Be afraid BUT read the article. Be afraid BUT take action. (I know, easier to say than to do) From the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists - Used without permission https://thebulletin.org/doomsday-clock/current-time/ " Humanity continues to face two simultaneous existential dangers—nuclear war and climate change—that are compounded by a threat multiplier, cyber-enabled information warfare, that undercuts society’s ability to respond. The international security situation is dire, not just because these threats exist, but because world leaders have allowed the international political infrastructure for managing them to erode."

AWS, New Console, First Show

Decided to start working with Amazon Web Services to handle the BSR website. There is a teaser posted here on AWS. It will be pointed to by bomb.shelter.radio.am and www.bomb.shelter.radio.am as soon as DNS refreshes. I was going to host the server at the Bomb Shelter, but my ISP keeps messing up my firewall settings on their firewall. In other news, we have been running tests with the new console software and hardware (we will continue to use the Newsroom server hosted by CT7). It looks like MIXX running on a Surface Pro 3 with Windows 10 will replace the former console, which was Nicecast on Mac OS X. I've got nothing against the previous toolset, we had a lot of great shows with that console. But frankly, Apple has priced themselves out of my market. Our first show will be in April 2019. Small steps, but still steps...
