      Well, I didn't want to comment that. I just wanted to tell what I read in a newspaper. It's sure costly and they need the money to keep the service up.

          College, so hours are flexible per semester.

            Are you an undergrad?

            What do you do at NASA that doesn't require, at the very least, a Master's? I gotta get in on that!

              Yup, undergrad.

              I don't exactly get paid much, but you don't have to be a genius to get it. I don't do space stuff, my project is terrestrial software-based.

                Screenie of what I'm doing (not a public project so no unmasking the URL ). Normally I'd give you the URL but since it's a messaging system actual people there might be online and I don't want you broadcasting crazy stuff :

                      You'd think NASA would use something a little stronger than MySQL......

                        The project requires speed and a light distribution weight, and I didn't feel like using some bulky Oracle or other database.

                          Cool, NASA have OS X servers?

                            Well, I do... They insisted on Linux but ironically pricing a similarly-configured Dell server would have cost more (the G4 that's running Garnet is a 933 MHz with DVD Burner (hehe ) and 768 MB of RAM, 60 GB HDD).

                              No need to preach to the converted

                              I use OS X for all my dev work. You can't beat hitting save in BBEdit and then refreshing Moz to see the changes - all with a proper apache environment. Being able to restart finder in terminal is pretty handy too.

                                Bah, I did the development in Windows 2000 on my second machine in Dreamweaver (1.7 GHz, 512 MB, 40 GB SCSI, and I was able to justify Radeon 8500 128 MB DDR too )
