Telemetry and videos are inconclusive without further analysis as to what went wrong. Everything was green lights.
This is a catastrophe for SpaceX which enjoyed, until now, a perfect launch record.
Exactly! Looks like we need to have all the antitrust discussions again - how it's ok to have a monopoly but not ok to use that to grab market share on other markets, how monopoly power does not mean 100% market share etc. Too many are too young to remember from the MS antitrust days or maybe they have forgotten all that.
And if you think that it's wrong of EU to investigate an American company, think about it this way: with EU and US doing these investigations, we can have more faith in that all monopoly abusing companies will be investigated somewhere - even if their home country is turning a blind eye. This is good on both sides - it's not like this will really have a huge effect on Google anyway.
I bought Dycky Shine 3 Tenkeyless and I am loving it. The color led games were fun for about a day, but the mechanical keyboard without the number keypad is just awesome. I guess many manyfacturers make fine mechanical keyboards, but if you don't use the number keypad, consider a tenkeyless keyboard. It is so nice to have the mouse closer to the keyboard.
I watched the document earlier today. It's not gloomy. It has a very clear call to action with many realistic ideas of how to combat pollution. Actually watching it made me think that maybe China can get this pollution situation fixed some day.
Maybe you should watch it too?
I guess they are incompetent because they are having the same trouble with another reactor in France.
For a long time Areva was complaining that TVO, the company that bought the reactor in finland, was not doing everything required and that the safety requirements where somehow wrong, but since they have the same trouble in France with very favourable regulators - they must be incompetent.
The main problem has been to automation system. For the nuclear reactor safety standards, there must be two completely separate systems, so the other can be used as backup. I believe they have had a lot of trouble in creating two systems that are really separate, so that the other can really be used as a backup. Actual construction work at the site has been slowing down, because the designs just could not be finished.
The reactor was bought with a fixed price contract by a private company called TVO. Areva has not been getting any extra money out of Finland. They are trying to sue the company that bought the reactor, TVO, but that is still ongoing and there is a countersuit too.
So I, as a finnish tax payer, have no direct stake in this. Of course, electricity prices might go down, if the reactor finally came online.
All production Java applications are compiled in debug mode. This way the problems can be properly debugged. Some application frameworks even require debug compilation to be able to do their runtime AOP.
That said: it is incompetence to show stack traces or other confusing errors to users. They are supposed to go to a log file.
That said: Some people are always incompetent, but after weeks of overtime, everyone will be incompetent.
