comment Where should my team start with becoming "modern"?
You beat me to it. No matter in which direction the OP takes his team, getting there with Git will be much easier and more productive than without.

comment Why don't combat aircraft have rear-facing weapons?
If your opponent is directly behind you, you have lost the fight. That is exactly why (I think) that rear-facing weapons are needed. And the device would be as single-purpose as the ejection seat and other safety systems are.

@JayCarr: I discuss guns as I'm more familiar with them and they are simpler. If you can address the issue with missiles, please do!

comment Eating alone in London
I ate a loan once, fortunately it was only for $50 or so. If you would prefer to not eat a loan then don't loan, in London or elsewhere.

comment Is full disk encryption on a server in a secure data center pointless?
If your company is doing anything interesting at all, then there is always the risk of people with smiles and warrants who will want hardware access to your server for a few hours. Of course, only them and the DC employees know that has happened. FDE might help protect your clients in this situation, even if neither you nor them know it.

Why is this so complicated? Is the intention is to get people to bike to work? By whose initiative, and who is funding them?

@DavidRicherby: Actually, I haven't. Perhaps a computer could do better. Computers control fire in the Korean DMZ, for instance.

comment A Surprising Circle Packing
Soda cans are malleable aluminum. I'm certain that Chuck Norris could fit 401 cans in that box without resorting to clever geometrical trickery.
