Interesting-looking paper... have just skimmed a few pages at this stage... The Graphical User Interface. Time for a Paradigm Shift?
Meanwhile... the Kursk salvage team has managed to raise the sub from the seafloor. Now they're planning - basically - to strap the sucker to the bottom of a huge ship and take it back to port. The way people have developed ocean salvage and heavy lifting techniques impresses me - I would have baulked at the sheer scale and fact that it's all going on while afloat. These guys must have just looked at the technical issues and thought "...we're going to need a bigger boat...". Engineers of the world just don't get the cool points they deserve :) It's not glamourous but it's pretty impressive.
