So I was surfing through NASA's web site to find the Discovery Home Page to
bookmark it into PNet's Netscape browser (found it, incidentally), and I stumbled
on a couple of pages about the "buyout." What is this all about? If they
mentioned it in AWST, I missed it. I really would appreciate it if one of you
guys could satisfy my curiosity.

You're not reading the right things to keep up with NASA personnel issues.
Add Keith Cowing's RIF WATCH to your bookmark list. It always
has the latest internal NASA memoranda; and has followed the NASA-wide
(not just HQ) buyout in detail.

Pretty much what the NASA HQ pages say it is, as far as I know. RIF
watch at http://www.reston.com has more information than you probably
have time to read...

So much for this fantastic "dead tree" technology that everyone keeps
telling me about :-).

Dead tree technology doesn't saddle you with a $300 phone bill. :/

There are more details than you could possibly want on RIF Watch
at http://www.reston.com/rif/watch.html. Basically, NASA is trying
to reduce headcount to meet future budgets.
