Re: OMG OCEAN FLOOR JUST OPENED UP!!!!!!!!!AND camera 8 on fire???
How come if I am sitting on the bp ;ive feed at this link
[link to www.bp.com] and I scroll up and down I go back and forth between the two cameras in the same viewing area?


dont know what you mean



If I am at that link and watching the camera I can see both feeds...one of which is frozen, the other is the hyge billowing oil clouds etc... Anyway, I can switch back and forth to both camera views simply by scrolling my mouse up and down...the actual internet page doesnt move, just the video screen,


OK...jaysus eff...it has stopped allowing me to do so now...but that is what it WAS doing....and I am not on hallucinagenics....

I tried to screencap it and it only pasted the LIVE feed into my photoshop, which has NEVER happened before when screencapping a live feed. Now the screens are black!

Who designs undersea equipment with attachments that take a year to plug into? I mean seriously, most of the time was wasted trying to get Part A to fit into Part B.


Think this is easy? Give this a try and see how long it takes you..

Go get a needle and thread. Fill up your sink and tub with water. Now place the thread and needle in the water and now try to thread that needle. Lets see how long it takes you to do it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 989492


My point exactly. Why isn't the equipment designed to self-attach/self-align (ie, a cone design could have been used to adapt the electrical power coupling tube to the power unit - the space shuttle used that to couple to the space station).

It is hard. It is hard because the equipment design makes it hard.

I've seen penny arcade mechanical arms that are more tractable, flexible, articulating and easier to maneuver.

Sorry but I call it like I see it.

Here is a products page that will give you a better idea of the workings of the flex joint used on BOPs.
It’s location on the BOP will be obvious when you see it again, in the ROV video.

It looks like Pincher-Rex is either at 500 feet or 500 meters -- and not moving.

Looks like they are going through testing procedures.

This aint going to work. How can that pincher cut through the pipe and drill? It doesnt have a clean cut. Wont it just squeeze/crimp the pipe? WHat happens if i doesnt cut through thepipe but just crimps it? WOnt the back blast fuck the BOP up?

Geeze, if that massive Pincher thing can't get the riser in it's grasp... we are f...d. I had a girl friend once who could have opened that wide, but I don't know how to contact her.

I don't think they are going to use it on top of the riser. I have a feeling they may cut the rest of the pipe that is hanging off of it to the left.

My guess to have a cleaner cut with out the weight hanging off the side of it for the diamond cutter. Thus giving it a smother and cleaner cut. I am only speculating here.
