  • 40 minutes in position, cutter jaw is starting to bite now … oil starting to stream #OilKatrina #
  • Cutter jaw continues to bite … oil stream is building #OilKatrina #
  • Cutter jaw continues to bite … oil stream is building and riser is sagging #OilKatrina #
  • @motownmutt Big jaw cutter is hard at it; riser (horizontal?) has developed nearly 45degree sag; oil billows through jaw bite. in reply to motownmutt #
  • Riser's collapsing; jaw is having to wrestle now for final cut. #OilKatrina #
  • @jjprojects That was my initial confusion Jim: I thought of Kuwait fires; someone (you?) said "To stop US landing". That was news to me. in reply to jjprojects #
  • Cut succeeded? Jaw has let go of dangling riser. #OilKatrina #
  • Great shot of BOP … riser rough cut near its top (a few feet from BOP? no reference) #OilKatrina #
  • Amazing close shots of BOP and snipped riser (Sadly, streaming oil like mad.) Cutter already attached? Diamond rope? #OilKatrina #
  • @KenChapman46 Back in the day Lougheed had time to chat. Today? Everyone I meet is too.busy too.busy too.busy. Windows of opportunity close. in reply to KenChapman46 #
  • If someone wanted to start my business, they'd pay me to do design. But having the design, I can't kick-start the project. #matrix #borg #
  • Cut succeeded? I dunno. Looks to me like riser folded over at cut point. #OilKatrina #
  • @daemn42 Roger that. So "fine cut" w/diamond circular? I see the CUT unit / wondering if that's diamond wire. in reply to daemn42 #
  • @daemn42 p.s. you could suggest HashTags by adding Searches on your Profile. (Search via twitter.com and then Save that Search.) ^5 #
  • Major cut has removed massive weight of collapsed riser. Fine cut unit is in place on theBOP stack. #OilKatrina #
  • @kkoschany – Greets. You have URL for WinAmp video? It's a long mms: so I don't want to use a shortener. On request. #

  • @motownmutt Funnny you should mention it: the game box I built (under $600!) runs XP Pro … maybe Win7 someday. Maybe. :-) in reply to motownmutt #
  • Fundamentals: prime-time advertising is only 10% of CNN's revenue stream. #
  • Looks to me like fine cut is started at the top of BOP stack. ("band saw"? diamond wire?) #OilKatrina #
  • @kkoschany It's a conspiracy of the left-libertarian variety: many tweets make light uhhhh *brain cramp* cheers in reply to kkoschany #

  • #ExistentialPaucity – Lacking raw stuff (the smell of solder or bite of a wood chisel) it isn't just haiku that disappears but appreciation. #
  • @TechLiberation What did you think of @nicholascarr's "de-linkification"? I'd love to turn his arguments inside out. Should be done! :-) in reply to TechLiberation #

  • #Innovation – Sarnoff was A-list. Armstrong? Inventor. So Armstrong won repeated court battles, but lost his war. #matrix #borg #
  • Amazing close ups of riser cutoff from the top of the BOP stack. #OilKatrina #
  • "Fine cut" is 3/4 done. Next step, I guess, is to install top on BOP stack and stream oil to surface pumps. #OilKatrina #
  • @noel It wasn't executives who cut corners. They never get their hands dirty. And it's not the low-end workers to blame. Same old same-old. in reply to noel #
  • @noel I hear you. From psych studies in psychophathy: those w/social advantages /don't/ get tangled with typical criminal activies. *sigh* in reply to noel #
