FAA computer systems reported down across East Coast... Developing...
THIS COULD BE IT!!!
Well that’s gonna make a mess.
Does this include the air traffic controllers?
Gate holds of an hour in Philly, Chicago and Dallas.
Yikes. No kidding. I wonder which systems they're talking about?
Well, that would depend on your definition of the word "it".
Could it be related to the NASA shuttle launch?
I’m assuming so but I don’t know what I’m talking about most of the time.

US FAA votes Windows Vista down and is interested in Linux+Google
Washington, USA - Double defeat for Microsoft
The US FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) is refusing to install Windows Vista, the new operating system developed by Microsoft, on the 45,000 computers used at its offices.
The decision made by FAA followed an accurate evaluation of update costs generated by the new installation, for example taking into consideration the 1G RAM requirement.
However, this choice does not seem the most alarming one: in fact, almost apparently, the US authority is seriously evaluating the possibility to completely abandon the Microsoft system and choose the concurrent Linux+Google one.
Probably a cascade failure of the Windows-based system...
Ground stops in Cleveland, Detroit, and others...
Looks like I picked the wrong day to quit sniffing glue.
I’ll be in the shower...
No, but a few people will be inconvenienced and will be a bit late in getting to their destination.
