Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

The two main satellites used to predict hurricanes and storm tracks are expected to fail in 2016. NASA has, of course, know this for years.
Their replacements might launch in 2017. Maybe. If red tape, department infighting, and budget issues don't delay them further.
These satellites are quickly moving toward the end of their lifespan and their replacements, part of the forthcoming Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS), won't be launched until 2017, at the earliest.
In the last year, two federal government assessments, along with a third conducted by a team of outside experts, questioned the program's $12.9 billion price tag and offered a scathing review of the project's management, describing it as a bureaucratic logjam that drove up costs and pushed back launch dates.
Well, to be fair, NASA is pre-occupied with Muslim Outreach. Those guys, they need all the help they can get with building rockets. And Obama is determined to give it to them too. It's Smart Diplomacy, and trust him, you don't really need to understand it.
Maybe when the Muslims perfect their rockets we can send them on a manned mission to the sun. Don't worry, they'll land at night!
As for the sad state of our weather forecasting satellites, well, whatcha gonna do? Our Dear Leader can't ride herd on every dysfunctional bureaucratic behemoth, can he? He's got vacationing to do! And free contraceptives to pass out! Meanwhile, Steve Chu, who's supposed to pay attention to this stuff, is merrily playing Santa Claus to the green energy dreamer brigades. They've got money to burn!
