I knew this was coming.  I am angered at how the government broke its
promiseto the Ada community.  We accepted the no-mandate BS providing an
infrastructure
was maintained with $15M budget.  It sure doesn't feel very good being
screwed
by DISA.  I hope the next tank or airplane that gets built using C++
software
is buggy and way over budget.  This should teach the powers that be that
they
should have been using Ada all along.  May those who caused the AJPO to
close
grow like onions with their head in the ground and their feet in the
air! (Old
Yiddish curse)

Boy am I fuming!!!!!!!!!!!
