Hi Gerry,
Since you asked... not sure what distro of ISO we may need but there is a lot
of work yet here on Terra fir ma... one area of convergence that the Beowolf
in space might hold some measure of promise in synergistic high radiation
environment would be, at least in my mind, the site of Chernobyl that no one
is very keen to talk about but all are certanly aware it is a site that must be revisited... in the death toll
even greater that our 9/11... and their Russian firefighters are still adding their heroic numbers to the list...
Who are we to ask them to sacrifice more than they have already... But I think all agree we have a daunting and
serious job to do in a very difficult almost space like environment.
. Crazy Russians a little nuts but ya just got to love'em
Just posting, thanks for list indulgence
