Technology has always found its greatest consumer in a nation's war and defense efforts.

modelled on AEA - but with better abilities to explain things. Because I've been hoping to actually get Robert Showalter problems solved - and sold -with explanations by lchic .
I think the corpus of this forum can be very useful - and as for threads - on the Guardian there are good ones - and key ones are archived at http://www.mrshowalter.net
