moviecode:

From: http://deeperdesign.wordpress.com/2010/02/26/is-iron-man-made-of-lego/
I was re-watching Iron Man recently and noticed something interesting.  During Iron Man’s first “boot up sequence”, in the “terrorist” caves of Nowhereistan, some butchered C code is displayed on a faked up laptop screen.
The code displayed on screen, although missing some syntactically important characters such as semi-colons, is actual valid C source code.  So valid in fact that I wondered where it came from.
After a quick Google I found it. This code is in fact as follows:
    send[0] = 0x65;
    send[1] = 1;
    send[2] = 3;
    send[3] = 5;
    send[4] = 7;
    send[5] = 11;

    if (rcx_sendrecv(fd, send, 6, recv, 1, 50, RETRIES, use_comp) != 1) {
	fprintf(stderr, "%s: delete firmware failed\n", progname);
	exit(1);
    }

    /* Start firmware download */
    send[0] = 0x75;
    send[1] = (start >> 0) & 0xff;
    send[2] = (start >> 8) & 0xff;
    send[3] = (cksum >> 0) & 0xff;
    send[4] = (cksum >> 8) & 0xff;
    send[5] = 0;

    if (rcx_sendrecv(fd, send, 6, recv, 2, 50, RETRIES, use_comp) != 2) {
	fprintf(stderr, "%s: start firmware download failed\n", progname);
	exit(1);
    }

    /* Transfer data */
    addr = 0;
    index = 1;
    for (addr = 0, index = 1; addr < len; addr += size, index++) {
The code above comes from a firmware downloader for the RCX (a programmable, microcontroller-based Lego brick), written in 1998 at Stanford University by Kekoa Proudfoot. You can get the full source file here and it is distributed under the Mozilla Public License.  This is the same license used by Firefox and many other Open Source software products.
The sequence in the film in which this code appears suggests that the code is either being downloaded as firmware to the Iron Man suit or being used to upload firmware to an RCX Lego brick that is somehow involved in the operation of Iron Man.
So it appears that Iron Man is either powered by Open Source software or made of Lego.  I’m not sure which is cooler.


I BELIEVE IT CAN BE BOTH

Dear Avengers and Iron Man movieverse fandom,I’ve noticed there’s fanfic in which poor Rhodey has been demoted three whole ranks. Here are some facts that may prove helpful when writing:
1)  He is Lieutenant COLONEL James Rhodes.
2)  He is addressed as “Colonel” or “Lieutenant Colonel” in conversation.
3)  His pay grade is O-5.
4)  Lieutenant Colonel is ranked above a Major (O-4) and below a full-bird Colonel (O-6).
5)  Steve would salute Rhodey and Rhodey would return the salute, not the other way around. A Captain (O-3) is two ranks below a Lt Col.
5a)  But Rhodey MAY salute Steve first, out of respect.
6)  Rhodey is NOT a Lieutenant, which is one of the two LOWEST commissioned officer ranks in the Air Force, 2nd LT (O-1) and 1st LT (O-2).
7)  His insignia is a silver oak leaf (or a black oak leaf if wearing desert cammo).
8)  Based on his rank, he’s served approximately 10 to 16 years in the Air Force.
9)  He was Air Force ROTC at MIT. (It’s implied, anyway, since Tony talks about them going on Spring Break together.)
Thanks,Scroll


THANK you


Perhaps its worth noting that by the end of Iron Man 3 he’s been promoted to a full Colonel.
