Sneak was impressed to learn of efforts to bring a WiMax network to the UK, but surprised by one of the technologies involved. Apparently a system called SkyPilot will be used to make the link between the WiMax back-haul network and the end-user's site. Now, Sneak knows that SkyPilot is an American firm, but surely even in the US - where they are happy to have a president incapable of correctly pronouncifying difficultacious words of more than three letters - they still have access to dictionaries. From which they might learn that "sky pilot" is a slang term for a military chaplain - the person responsible for administering last rites to dying soldiers and steering them onto the big taxiway in the sky. So not a great omen for an untried and unfamiliar new offering, then.
