I hope it does mean the end of the weapons of mass destruction we have north of Glasgow, removing Trident is one of the major reasons for voting yes to independence next month.

This is nuclear NIMBYism. If you are worried about the base itself being a target for a nuclear or terrorist strike, such an event would affect the whole world anyway, not just Glasgow.

The cores were not all necessarily crippled just to meet a price point. It's to do with the yields in the wafer fabrication process. The CPUs go through a test phase during their manufacture, and some of the cores in the quad core processors will have imperfections. Rather than throw them out, they instead shut down those cores and pass the die off as a CPU with a lower number of cores.

In case of injury notify your superior immediately. He'll kiss it and make it better.
