Ubuntu apt-key not working? Behind a Firewall? Open port port 11371 or use http://:80

I was trying to get some Ubuntu PGP Key’s for some ppa.launchpad.net sources, and apt-key kept erroring out. All I had to do was open up 11371 on my firewall or just use http://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 which would force the HTTP protocal instead of HKP.

It’s that simple actually.

Boeing’s unmanned A160T Hummingbird helicopter takes flight

Not the first Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) made. But the Boeing A160HT Humming Bird should be one of the best once further tests and simulation in combat missions is completed.
Boeing's unmanned A160T Hummingbird helicopter takes flight -

Filed under:


It's been a few ticks since we've seen Boeing send an atypical aircraft into the friendly skies, but the firm's latest helicopter has successfully completed a 12-minute test flight without so much as a pilot on board. The A160T Hummingbird unmanned rotorcraft is a turbine-powered "warfighter" that aims to provide "intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance coverage" in locales that could make even the most calloused veteran queasy. During its time in the air, it reportedly met every objective set for it, and while we've no idea how soon this thing will be lifting itself up, it'll eventually reach speeds of up to 140 knots and stay airborne for up to 20 hours before returning to base for a pat on the wing.
