Well are thy going to tear her down or what? Such a historical landmark it would be a dirty rotten shame to see her go!!!
The Open Document Format should solve this problem.
This should be a NON PROBLEM....
The contractor says they won't give the client (us the taxpayers) the source code, but it's easy to decompile it and pull it out ourselves. If it's so easy, why not give it to us? Doesn't make sense.
Good that Steve Williams was paying attention to this. Hopefully this means we will get a historical record that lasts.
Agreed, this *should* be a non-problem. And if the Navy had taken its obligation to do historical documentation even slightly seriously, it wouldn't be. Proprietary code and historical documentation is about as oxymoronic as it gets. It is hard to draw any other conclusion than the Navy viewed this a box-checking exercise, nothing more.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
