Which confirms that those who operated the BUK didn't care what the target was as long as they hit it.

Yes leading to the conclusion that they didn't actually realise that normal international passenger flights would be in their airspace.

Just means that all along they thought they were targeting a Ukrainian military plane.

Not sure they would have wanted to have the world looking closely at them, as Russia might just get jumpy and scale down support, Which I suspect they have done, no more BUK's.

Have a great time lurking in Devon Chris! :) Hello everyone. Thought we'd accidentally caught a non-stop train to Brighton coming home tonight. Fortunately we didn't have to wave at London but were able to get off at Kings Cross :)

That's OK I know they all stop at East Croydon, so you could have said hello!!

Or at least waved!!

PS I live about 2 mins walk from the London to Brighton railway line.


East Croydon!! :) MUCH more salubrious than Kings Cross at 11.30pm... :/ Will remember for next time Bernie :)

First person I have met that has anything good to say about Croydon!!

Sorry Martin I have 6 Windows PC that I am totally happy with, plus one Linux machine I use for odds and ends, I know the situation and am happy with my lot.

I have to admit only posting what I did to see your reaction, the company I used to work for was 100% Windows until a switched on developer noted that Linux was free, within a year the main operating system for the new user terminals was Linux, not because it was any better, but because it was free.

That is the only reason it is used as much as it is because of the bean counters.

Thousands of Windows licences costs!!

Thousands of user terminals running Linux, free!!

Priceless

Ah yes, Eric forgot that everyone also has access to a telephone network.

Not sure what that has to do with internet neutrality!

There a very few dial up connections available here in the UK

If it is not a dial up then what are you trying to say.

Meanwhile, Linux is here and welcoming to all those willing to try an uncluttered non-Marketing-advertising-infested experience of computer freedom.

Get the Linux developers to allow me to use ALL my current program AND games and I may think about it, until then I will stick with WINDOWS.

Just to clarify, I use Linux EVERY day to surf the web and send emails on a PC I just haven't got round to re-installing windows on(just for fun) because its free, works fine for that,ask it to run any of my games or paid for software and it fails big time.

Great for day to day things not good for real time.

This info has been on the wiki since day one

The fact is that an SA-11 (BUK)working alone will NOT use IFF to identify any target it needs the "TAR" or target accusation radar unit to be able to use IFF.

As far as anyone can tell no TAR units were operational at the time, so the TELAR (SA-11 BUK)was quite able to lock on but did not have the IFF ident available.

Makes me wonder why you read the Bible 4 or 5 times Anniet? You didn't seem to learn anything from reading it.


Please don't insult people on this thread.

How do we know our boards aren't under surveillance either??


Any government can monitor any communication they wish to.

To believe anything else is just wishful thinking.

I havent seen a post by EX in a long time. As he is a mod I would assume he is working behind the curtain?

You might think that, however I could not possibly comment.

At grass roots level, if Tesco's are doing a better deal than Asda, Sainsbury's or Morrison's, people will continue to shop with them. If not, they'll go elsewhere.

That will always be the case regardless of their "sharp" practices.

My local Tesco Express is always packed any time I shop there, it is also clean, light and tidy, which was more than could be said for the local Spar and Nisa shops.

And no it's not about price for me, but cleanliness and service, which has always been lacking in the so called "local shops".

I read the reason banns are not permanent is because many on this board have mental problems. That's why Allie form Vancouver still has an active account.


There are permanent bans. Daryl Wilson broke none of the board rules.

Of course here there was a long derelict pub, which was a dive when it was opened. Tesco's now has the nicest brightest shop in the area.

So I have definitely no axe to grind here I use the shop daily and for me and all the people in the area it is a godsend.

Dr. Korpela, 4Pablo2 = me does SETI 24-7 since last millennium. Dec. 2011 was start of this Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit 16 Meg Memory. You can see at Willy de Zuter Stats that the ten best 24 hour periods degraded within 12 months from ~ 100'000 down to now hardly 17'000 credits / 24 Hrs.
I again plan to have a dedicated SETI unit built by our local COD / Computer Outlet Direct. This time I want it to run on LINUX to elliminate "Windows Rot" slow down problems !
What advise can you guide us to build and run a reliably performing 100K / 24Hrs. unit ?

Thank you for your Dedication, Efforts and Guidance.

Sincerely, Paul A. Willi, Eng.

This thread is not for asking questions, and I very much doubt Dr Korpela would have time to go into that sort of detail.

You would be better off asking in the Number Crunching forum where there are experts in Windows and Linux who would definitely be able to advise you.

A second try?

Please do not descend into name calling.

The subject might be not to everyone's taste, but please keep it civil.

so you're saying it is all staged & did not happen?


No he is suggesting that the site has been looted for valuables, and the passports were not valuable so were left.
