    Which branch of the military are or were you in, Will?

    i'm a defense contractor. I've contracted to all the branches and most civilian agencies at one time or another, but for the past 5 years it's been the Air Force and the Missile Defense Agency, which I think is part of homeland security

    Ha! I could deploy to Taiwan if I wanted to! We have a radar project over there.

    I hear it's a pretty tough deployment, though, and that the compensation package is not particularly generous

    Oh God. Living there would be horrible.

    I just want to scream at them in my American accent then leave.

    My understanding is that the Taiwanese government is really hard to deal with, and that their civil infrastructure is totally unreliable - like roads wash out and power goes down all the time, and they are basically powerless to fix the problem.

    Apparently it is a horribly corrupt government.

    Everything I know about Taiwan comes from Brant Richard's blog about getting the bike bits he designs manufactured there.

    Oh, and that story told by one of the guys from Hope Technology about contracting in Taiwan to have their carbon brake levers made, wherein they arrived back in the UK to an email from the manufacturer saying the initial shipment would be two months delayed, and the discovery that said carbon brake levers were being sold on eBay.

    so therefore it's not really corruption; it's the invisible hand of self interest trying to make everything great!

    I never figured out how one would adequately do white print on dark t-shirts in a DIY kind of way without getting into building your own equipment.

    no no tibet is a poor but virtuous indigenous people trying to struggle forward under the crushing boot of a totalitarian invader! Their corruption is a result of having to passive-aggressively kowtow to their chinese overlords. In a sense, their regressive society and widespread corruption is a sign of pluck and the spirit of freedom and independence!
