Serious Vault-Co Shelter
This is what I am talking about. I am never going back to one of these tin cans I built in the past. My next shelter is going to be a subterranean spacious garden of eden. Buying the infrastructure components soon. Guarantee you that Vault-OS is going to be stabler, cheaper and more likely to run for a century with secondhand equipment than the expensive computer systems you see in the above article. Who is going to fix those things when they break or go down? You'd also need a complete IT department down there just to keep the lights on.
I am lucky to live in Melbourne now because the locals are well versed in all aspects of this sort of construction and have it down to a science.
UPDATE : Terrific article describing the scientific reality of post-nuclear survival as depicted in Fallout 4.
Nothing to worry about, just U.S. government secretly firing nuclear ballistic missiles over inhabited metropolitan areas in clear violation of Posse Comitatus. The future is so bright I gotta wear shades.
P.S. At my day job the full end-to-end architecture of Vault-OS was fielded today to great acclaim. I am doing parallel work at home to match the advances I have gotten at work. This is a secure, distributed system monitoring high-end industrial equipment with web browser display using mailslots. We have already handled a variety of complex data from assorted devices and it is running like a charm including the mechanisms for real-time update. You'd be amazed at the village idiot simplicity of it all. I was consulting with a company last week about their existing PLC system and we were like aliens coming from different planets discussing adaptability. Their system had already cost almost a hundred grand in licensing fees just to get it to version one for a single protocol. For example, they explained when they wanted to support BACNet for their client they had to invest another hundred thousand dollars. I told them I had written a daemon for BACNet in a single day and was using it around-the-clock testing at home with no headaches. While they were explaining how hard all this stuff was to me, I ran the demo on my laptop for them with a BACNet device over RS-485. They were in the middle of telling me these things were "never that simple." They are - if you think about them the right way.
