  1. Can't say for sure, but when they figure out what to do with the old one, I'll be sure to let them know their design can't be constructed!
  2. Cafeteria fish, runny mac and cheese, and carrots. Ugh. Which pisses me off because I left a damn meatball sub at home by accident!
  3. Unnecessary having lived it day in and day out. There are ample methods for vetting engineering design changes that don't need to involve the cost, schedule burden, and limitations of the licensing change process. It's compounded by the fact that the regulatory bodies expect a much higher level of detail and commitment in the design certification and UFSAR's than the existing plants.
  4. Nope. Especially when Part 52 licensing and first of a kind design changes f*ck you into the ground.

    The Automotive Thread

    Windshield is in, alignment scheduled for Friday at 1:00, then its off to the track Friday evening to drop everything off. Still have a checklist of 20 small items left to be done to the car, a dozen things to buy for either the race or the trailer, and 57 things to pack as supplies for the race! Fortunately, the event organizers gave me permission to use the novice pace laps to break in my brake pads. You can't just drive on racing brake pads out of the box, or they'll never grip right and will wear prematurely. They need about 5 stops from medium speed, a cooling off period, and then about half a dozen stops from 60 MPH or so to get them really hot and make them fade, at which point, you limp back to the pits without using them and let them cool down for an hour. The heat cycle deposits a layer of friction material on the rotors and lets them do their job after that. This saves me from having to waste a full 20 minute timed session breaking everything in, with 39 other drivers up my ass trying to go balls to the wall - not exactly a safe condition on track. I still have to go pick up the trailer tomorrow night and swap cars. I need to finish bolting the winch in place, bolt in a couple new D rings (I can't cross the front straps anymore), and bolt in some idler rings so the straps will fit under the nose of the car. I'm not looking forward to towing. My trailer is only 16' and is open deck, so the length of the car's nose makes me load it to where the CoG is further back than I'd like. The car also has a huge carbon fiber wing on the back which generates about 300# of downforce. It makes for a very light tongue weight that likes to walk around on the highway. It does make for some cool rooster tails if you're towing in the rain, though.

    I wish we could do that. My cube is fluorescent hell.

    The alleged problem with the bags is that they catch about 50% of the beetles that go to them, but attract something like 400% more beetles to the area. I think there are some species of plants/shrubs that are a natural deterrent. Maybe plant some of those around the property? Or just give a bunch of those bags to your neighbors and let the beetles f*ck up their yard.
