Public Notice: An Error Received at a US Military Recruiting Site

Pieces of following message sent to webmaster. Most trimmed with a link provided back to here due to a 255 character limitation in their web data entry form. I guess due to funding limitations they are reducing bandwidth requirement and total ascii reading volume sufficient to meet their mandated coordination with citizens or sovereigns at large on an individual basis. I wonder if they know Wikiversity is available for access to online expert volunteers interested in life long education?

I received this error message:

For later maybe hacker lingo lesson Note to self, due to self lameness and/or laziness or self alleged learning deficiency with regard to computer languages, puns, relative merits, etc. simply make some money and/or pay brainiac if really a space freak really needs this level of specificity to complete a tech app. Remember to learn only enough of it to delegate effectively (hopefully little or none) and make the call. We are now going water skiing while the frackers (friendly hackers)(packers, green bay, political hackers, ph'd, political hackers divine) do it first (prototype to functional specifications) and then do it with us later in user orientation.

raph regarding Wikiversity and your frustration at lack of visible progress ... Wikipedia trust metric has been on hold primarily because we have been learning how to handle information categorization, filtering, censorship and dynamic allocation of write access to increasingly responsible persons of all ages, tongues, nations, oceans and religions. As useful groupings are found or proposed for testing and the educational value fades of overwriting graphiti someone reliable and respected (R&R) probably NOT associated with the anti cabal (ac) formed by direct collaboratory (ac) greenSpace faction allies ("24" is not A.C. Green, at least I do not think he/she/it is A.C. Green, much the same staying power but the English usage and primary interest seem markedly dissimilar) I suspect a slow phasin of current page edit access might be implemented between all the various interwiki infosphreres via an advogato style trust metric. Might lead to messy politics but hey, that human condition is better fought with ruthless abandon within an infosphere than on our precious and delicate oceans, deserts, mountains, valleys, forrests and plains. Maybe when the nanotech gets good enough to clean it up we can go back to depleted uranium thunderbolts at all scales and elevations.
