The internet connection here has been awful all week. Data rates are in the toilet. Refreshing pages takes forever. It makes XBrad a grumpy bear.

It’s funny just how reliant we have become on what little more than a decade ago was just becoming widely available.

One of these days, Craig’s gonna wrap up his excellent series on the evolution of American artillery (and a foray into anti-tank guns, which will lead to my discussion of anti-tank doctrine). He’ll reference back to his excellent series on the evolution of tactical radios, and integrate that into a discussion of the benefits and challenges of establishing and maintaining wide-band information networks on the battlefield today and tomorrow. 

If I’m this irked by not being able to download cute kitteh videos, just imagine what a pain losing connectivity on the battlefield is.

  1. I know exactly how you feel xbradtc. I have lost count on how many times I had to go back to the city because my internet connection in the country went down. I guess satellite will be my next big thing …. but it is pricey in my neck of the woods.

  2. What URR heard:

    blah blah blah blah blah artillery blah blah blah blah cute kitteh blah blah….

    Did I miss anything?
