so you've never worked on serious computer systems? The mainframe and vms clusters I've used had databases working for years (over a decade in one case as new hardware joined sequentially to cluster as old retired).

failures very occasional, to say the least

even where I am now the main database is oracle on virtualized linux servers, it's been up for 3+ years

Not everything is apache server hooking to single mysql instance....

If things happen *inside* a black hole to dissipate energy of collapse, I've not heard of a mechanism yet, never heard of a Hawking radiation there. Supposedly everything formed there has to go into the singularity, even any spontaneous pairs created.

Now there are theories of other quantum effects that might keep singularity from forming, but quantum gravity models have a huge problem in that they are not "normalizable", the probability distributions can't be set to something meaningful and useful to describe what measured properties of particle would be.

The Force is what holds everything together. It has its dark side, and it has its light side. It's sort of like cosmic duct tape.
