I just came across this story.. i've never read it before. Anyone remember this?


The timer chip in Cruise Tomahawk missiles could have been responsible for one of the missiles going awry and landing in Iran today, The Register can reveal.
This morning, a Tomahawk missile landed by mistake in southern Iran,although President Katamai (it's true!) has not lodged a formal complaint.

After Gulf War I, we put it to a senior executive at AMD that it was the (AMD) 286 chips in Tomahawks which had caused some of them to not hit their targets.

everett6, as much as I support intel, I don't support you. You are dumb donkey raping shiit eater. You give people who like Intel chips and just want to leave it at that, a bad name. And who gives a shiit about some old asss 286 anyway. Is that supposed to prove something. You know what, why don't you grow a diick and go fuuck yourself.

Bengie, I don’t care if you support AMD, Intel or Cyrix. I don’t care if you’re a homosexual, bisexual or a transvestite. Is there some reason you think i give a sh*t what YOU think.. LOL. Any way, the reason I started this thread was not necessarily to dog AMD but to find out if the story was true. I wasn’t sure because it almost sounds fake.. I mean c'mon President Katmai? That’s just too coincidental.. You guys should stop taking things so damn seriously.. my hell.

You're right Antipop. I am just really unstable. I'll try to take my ritalin and calm down a little. I just go off the handle sometimes.

Guess I could be wrong but the whole wording of the article tends to hint that the whole thing is a big joke.. I mean, an Amd powered missle hitting an Intel HQ, President Streaming SIMD Extensions.. Comon ;)

You better care what he thinks, because he speaks for all of us, and, without us you'd be talking to your ass. (you're already half way there, just keep it up).

Dude, it is a joke. Iran has no President, they got an Ayatolla! He's an Islamic spiritual/political leader. Don't believe the tabloids, no matter what Tommy Lee Jones says.

It seems like the Ayatolla is the president sometimes. I'd sure as hell like to put out a death-edict on a few people. But in reality they have a president. I'm not sure just what 'powers' (if any) he has, but most likely he's only president 'for life'......

Quick question: Where did I ever say I believed it?

Wow, well I didn’t know he was representing all of you. Did you read what he (Hack_benjamin) posted to me? I don’t think you did or you wouldn’t have said what you did. Here are couple highlights of his post.

<b> “You are dumb donkey raping shiit eater.”
“You know what, why don't you grow a diick and go fuuck yourself.” </b>

Grizely, do you really want to claim that he speaks for all of you? Do the rest of you agree with that?

At least Benjamin had the decency to apologize for his uncalled for remarks, and after that you turn around and support his vulgar language. And then you have the audacity to WARN ME!? Im sorry.. but im just clueless as to why you did that. Do you want to elaborate, Grizely?

he certainly was the Ayatullah at the time. cannot find any other reference, although the register article states an AMD exec as saying that it was a timing chip, not a 286 that caused the fault.

Nope its not true, I have friends that have worked on the guidance system for those missles. Those missles haven't missed a target yet, but a few other missles have.

The t-hawks is still one of the more state of the art system, even on the older hardware its built on....

I found the story really funny though......looks like an april fools story that happened around the Gulf War.....
May 6, 2001 2:28:47 PM

I'm sure we were all wanting to talk like that, but we retraint ourselves. He did it for us. (At least for me).

If you want to be a pissoff, you get deserve whatever comments you recieve.
