It's somewhat hard to imagine that NASA doesn't need the computing power of an IBM mainframe any more but NASA CIO posted on her blog today at the end of the month, the Big Iron will be no more at the space agency.

Lots of NASA projects died. Project for the Space Shuttle program died around summer 2008 along with my NASA job at Jacobs ESCG. Was the best paying and most interesting job as well as the best job I ever had. Initially when I was hired there was a talk of a lot of Space Programs for the future. I thought my future was set with NASA jobs and job security. Almost bought a BMW 330i and a $38,000 condo - good I didn't buy these. Then many Space Programs got killed with Obama. I admit we didn't need to go back to the moon with the Bush Lunar Lander program. But now NASA jobs are dead for me.

It's sad that we have given up on NASA to feed, house, clothe and give cell phones to lazy bums.

NASA gave us new vista's to look forward to, now we're stuck supporting the dregs of society.
