One week open thread

Folks, I have to drop off the grid for about a week. Should be back a week from Sunday.

You kids behave yourselves and don't take and wooden nickels. Please come back in the 10th or so - I get so pouty when my StatCounter numbers collapse. Sniffle.

An open post is an open post, so it is all up to you guys and gals .... but let me get it started.

Subject: Shipbuilding.

Question: Ponder the proven/evolutionary AFCON. Should we buy the F310, the Corvette or both? If we do both (Salamander choice), can and should we make the Corvette a LCDR Command (Phib says yes)?

Discuss this if you want - if not, whatever comes up around the bar; and see 'ya!

PS: did you notice I am stealing their bandwidth for the pic? Heh, heh....wonder how long they will let me; though it is free advertising to their target market.....

Thanks to
Ken T for the idea.
