ed: It was my understanding that CoD is device specific, otherwise what's the purpose? There is no way the DoD could replace everyone's device or cert, worldwide, if one were compromised. That would take weeks. That wouldn't fly.
As to point number 2, that's security 101 in this type of game. Without the CoD one can't access's the system and the system doesn't/can't access him. JMHO
ed: I would think that the first time that log in protocol was a problem the device would become toxic and device would be categorized as "device non gratis" (LOL my Latin is horrible).
For what my humble opinion is worth, these guys are eons ahead of us on this.
One last item I would surmise that the device would go on a confiscation, secure and study list.
One last note from me on the 18 earlier posts, mine included, questioning WYY and the CoD's ability to foil that type of attack.
That's what WYY, and others do.
That's why WYY was able to raise the capital to operate.
That's why WYY has the TO 's and the base contract.
That's why a number of us got into WYY in the first place.
That's why WYY hires PHD's, professional hackers, ex FBI and who knows who to explore every nook and kraney (sic) of the software and hard ware.
(That's a lot of Why & WYY's LOL)
There is no one on this board that has even an infinitesimal idea of how their going about it so leave it be. There are other topics that can be expounded upon that we know something about.
ilove: Sure, its the same one that they get from all their vendors. If it blows up on the pad they sue them.
If it blows up after lift off they sue them.
If it falls apart in orbit they sue them.
If they can't light the candle for reentry they sue them.
If it burns up on reentry they sue them.
If they crash on landing they sue them.
Then they have a congressional investigation and hearing.
Then they forget about it and give them another contract to fix the problem.
Come on man.
ilove; Welcome to the real world. The sum total of the worlds knowledge is wrapped up in but one phrase, " There an' it no free lunches".
When you go dancing on the big floor you bring the best looking girl, do your best steps, you charm the crowd and pray for the best.
If life presented the winners to us on a silver platter we would all be dining with Warren Buffet and charming European bankers on a daily basis.
Lets just hope the boys in the drivers seat just keep turning left with the pedal down.
penny: LOL, Ranchos and air bags are in order for the Conestoga.
I scratch my head and wonder why so many folks buy on the high notes. Usually bad news gets me hawking the stock looking for an extra entry point but WYY is a bit confusing, no bad news, some good news and the old girl keeps falling lower. ???
Time to roll the dice. Le Bon Ton Rolle.
ou7: Its met with a yawn because it is already dialed into the equation as part of the BPA. Its good money but already accounted for.
ou7: "Accounted for" was probably a poor choice or words. "Factored in" would have been better. I was referring to investor sentiment not dollars and cents accounting.
Not all investors, but I would think the vast majority, would think that way. Now if an agency had pulled the trigger on say $ 50,000,000 of the BPA that would be a completely different story. When you get right down to it $4.5 MM isn't a lot of coins. JMHO
truth: The currant administration is not fond of sitting on unspent allocated money. My guess is there is going to be a big time push to burn the cash as soon as the funding bill is put to bed and maybe prior to the change in power in congress. We'll know for sure soon. So blowing past $20MM may turn into blowing past a much larger number. Just a guess.
phil: Ponder this, why would any firm that openly courts and solicits investor clients publish info open to the general public? They are either trying to "legally" run it up or run it down and guys like us just have to sit back and watch powerless to effect the outcome. I don't like it but its the way the game is played. Manipulation is a fact of life in this business.
Have many of the posters on this board been odd for a long time? Not much real industry related input, a great deal of pump/dump, very little informed industry based tech info, very peculiar financial analysis and non-stop arguing between some of the posters??? Not to mention the " I'm smarter than all the rest of you guys" daily postings.
I bought into this stock a year ago and am getting a good chuckle out of some of the posting by the "guys". I lost some coins no doubt but WYY isn't a Chipper and it should be looked at it in that vain not this is a can't loose proposition. There are a number of good info, good opinion and concerned folks on the board but there are certainly a number of seriously lost souls.
Down a piece myself but not worried.
ilove: "The state of humanity" ? Give me a break . So that validates bad behavior of many posters?
Tell me what the "between the line readings" involves. Please define.
There are just a number of really odd ball posters on this board and trying to validate their posts, and I would assume some of yours, is to be dismissed by a reference to my "naiveté'" is a weak response.
Just please respond, no broad reference's to one side or the other, no I'm the smart guy and you are all the dumb ones, no these are the facts without backup, just provide what you think is factual info.
Oh and by the way you don't need to "read between the lines" this is exactly the way I feel.
Jim and this is not just my humble option.
race: Its getting pretty hot in the kitchen. We'll see who has the whatever to hang on. I'm in for a dime and in for a dollar myself.
blc: I'd guess that Maas is spot on with that. I've been through that Dec. Jan. tax based roller coaster ride before and have done the same myself on occasion. The hit is always on the lone looser when everything is way up for the year. On the bright side Jan. can be a real hoot.
bhc: There are a couple of posters on this board that periodically provide real info. I'm not one of them but a bit of a historian I can be. WYY has a $650 MM BPO, they bit the bullet on a tax liability in the last QTR, they haven't screwed up anything in a long while, there are, according to management, a number of partners in near term future, they are in the thick of a section of the industry that every day appears to get more and more in the forefront of necessity. Etc. Etc. I tend to believe them as it pretends to the upcoming partners.
I don't think the argument that profits ASAP is anywhere near as important as many think . At this point that's as close to "real info" as I could allude to. I would like more but there just isn't any. ggrail is your best source for hard DD.
port: Its getting a bit testy wen you refer to "everyone else" as a pumper.
A lot of folks are trying to remain objective even when they have somewhat of a prejudice for the concepts WYY is attempting to employ.
You could end up hurting the feelings of those of us that are quite sensitive. LOL
Well guys the last 3-1/2 days played right into the hands of the gloom and doom trumpeters. There are traders out there that popped as much as cool 32% out of the hides of some of the panic prone folks. Think about it the next time it starts falling for no apparent reason. Man some times I wish I was a trader. LOL
