Keep in mind that if they ever do get out of "analysis paralysis" (this
subject has come up many times before for the past several decades but
nothing is ever actually done by the government projects!) that there
is enough money in the project to not just distort the market for
Classic Computers, but to totally obliterate the entire concept of
random individuals with old machines at home.  There's a very big
chunk of a billion dollars involved.  If you thought that dkdkk guy on
E-bay was distorting things, you ain't seen nothing yet.  When the
defense contractors decide they need all of "x", there will be
total havoc.

Tim.
