In order to create a RMA, please read and respond to the following:

Export Compliance Certification

By clicking the "I agree" button, I agree that Hitachi GST products will not be used for the design, development, manufacturing, testing, stockpiling, or use of biological, nuclear, missile or chemical weapons.
I had to click Agree so that I could get an RMA, but according to these unfortunate terms, my nuclear missile is without a hard drive!

Just as well. That COTS hard drive would not survive an EMP without serious shielding. You're better off using hardened plated wire memory or hardened solid state components. Meh, just to be safe you probably should add some radiation shielding. You only need enough memory for your targeting data and flight program anyway, once it gets off the ground, so a few megabytes of memory should be more than sufficient.

I see. I have a CF to ATA converter, so that'll have to do. Pity, I thought I could load all of Google Earth onto my nuclear missile...

Also, please PM me your PayPal account. I have a visual of the mirror, but it is a hassle to reach in, around, through, and over, and it'* probably not worth not having. Thanks a lot! I'll do some car work today, hopefully, so I'll snap a picture for you to see the problem I'm having.

Nah, you don't need that on board your missile. All it wants is an azimuth and downrange distance. Google Earth would just **** it off.
