When I had back-end problems they shoved a camera up there to look around.

And the NSA raided the place and took the video.

Is there supposed to be sound with that video?

All DoD contracts requiring new, unique software invoke the requirements of the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute’s rigid requirements for development and testing. Many large defense projects use millions of lines of code. (The SEI is formed as an FFRDC, a Federally Funded R&D Center and was the result of many early SW programs that ended up like this HHS debacle). These projects require a LOT of unique code and incorporate a lot of algorithmic processes that are almost universally unique – requiring original code. The oversight and testing has been tweeked over the years to nearly eliminate or drastically minimize these “rollout” disasters.

This admin is so bloated that it is utterly inconceivable that no one could see this coming despite the fact that it was a domestic program. Heads should roll for incompetence on any scale, but hey, you get what you vote for!!!

Whoops!!! That previous post was supposed to be shown in another thread. I have no idea what happened.

But if you can decipher my message, it’s all true. I was in charge of algorithm development on a large DoD contract, so I know from whence it came!!
