11:10 am - No nuclear reactors: Check.
Software is not designed, licensed or intended for use in the design, construction, operation or maintenance of any nuclear facility and Sun and its licensors disclaim any express or implied warranty of fitness for such uses.

It astounds me the things that people put in their license agreements sometimes. It also makes me wonder what event prompted the inclusion of such a phrase. . .

Wow, two posts about work in one day: It's like Christmas for people who want to know what I do for a living wage, except there's no baby Jesus involved.

Sun right? Well they did hold one of the biggest contracts with the Army when I was in Military Intelligence and (BTW) I was a 33T, Electronic Warfare Tactical Information Systems Repairer/Engineer. Though we didn't handle the nuclear stuff (at least not that I am aware of). Still its not all that odd that they would include a statement like that, given some of the military applications of their products.

I know they also have a number of contracts with other government agencies and probably several power generating facilities or companies, some of which may use or generate nuclear power. If I were in their position I'd like to not be held responsible in any way for a nuclear reactor meltdown.
