    Anyone get the feeling that the software was probably available on the consumer market for $19.99:vroam:

    Having contracted for the Army before, I can say that they don't have the money for that $20 piece of software that actually works but do have the money for that $5m custom software boondoggle that only works about half the time.

    No, that's not a problem, it's a feature.

    They could have licensed MySQL for a lot less. ("Keep track of" - isn't that what a database is for?)
