How To Take Apart Fukushima's 3 Melted-Down Reactors

Ex-MislTech Re:Will this be cheaper? (167 comments)

Agreed, they can learn from what they went thru at Chernobyl.

No need to reinvent the wheel except in a case where it can be proven as viable.

I think one thing that might make it cheaper for them would be hybrid concrete called
papercrete.

How To Take Apart Fukushima's 3 Melted-Down Reactors

Ex-MislTech Re:UnStAbLe (167 comments)

Printing $65 billion a month is the only reason the US hasn't had a Economic collapse.

The US is technically bankrupt if it was run as a business.

Back in 2010 the FDIC even had a negative balance sheet.

The US in financial terms can't rescue a little girl's lemonade stand except
by printing more funny money.

The only reason it is working now is due to the faith of all the ppl on the treadmill.

Fresnel CSP is cheap, and has a denser area coverage.

It can be built for half as much as parabolic trough, and the price is
continuing to drop. Once most of it can be 3d printed it will drop
even faster.

They may not be perfect, but they have posted information the Japanese government
lied about then it later came out to be true.

So at a minimum they are often forcing the corrupt government and corrupt Tepco to
tell the truth sometimes, I think its impossible to get them to tell the truth all the time.

Ex-MislTech Re:I have a plan (167 comments)

Nuclear power can be done as was shown with the US navy, but it requires
spending lots of money, and the problem with it as a utility is the bean
counters start bypassing safety.

But in the case of Fukushima stuxnet also got involved...

Water Filtration With a Tree Branch

Ex-MislTech Re:Most common pathogens (205 comments)

Access to the sky for water is free in most states though a few totalitarian
nut job states like Colorado make it illegal to collect water that falls on your roof....

The Phone Dragnet That Caught the World's Top Drug Lord

Ex-MislTech Re:What I get from this (62 comments)

I found out about this guy by watching the film Collapse in 2009, and since then
I see the US in a totally different perspective.

The funny thing was I thought I was awake after seeing "911 press for truth", but
honestly I did not know just how bad it really was til watching Collapse in 2009.

The Phone Dragnet That Caught the World's Top Drug Lord

Ex-MislTech Re:What I get from this (62 comments)

As someone who went to GSM seminars, and AIN for cell networks they can
just follow the tower hand offs.

For awhile ppl could get antennas that glowed when they transmitted, and one
of my co-workers on the SS7 let me know he could watch the tower hand offs
as he moved from "cell zone" to "cell zone".

The Phone Dragnet That Caught the World's Top Drug Lord

Ex-MislTech Re:What I get from this (62 comments)

Oh they got results, its just the opposite of what most sheeple would expect they want.

The truth starts to come into view when you see US troops guarding poppy fields
in Afghanistan, and then Pat Tillman says he is gonna blab and ends up dead.

Ex-MislTech Re:What I get from this (62 comments)

Well he probably was not cooperating with the group that was receiving tax payer
funded weapons from operation fast and furious, and operation gun walker.

It could be worse, he could have ended up like barry seal.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

When you know too much about CIA drug running you may end up dead
such as Pat Tillman, thou he did say he was going to go talk to Noam Chomsky, so....

"Despite his fame, Tillman did not want to be used for propaganda purposes. He spoke to friends about his opposition to President Bush and the Iraq war, and he had made an appointment with notable government critic Noam Chomsky for after his return from the military. The destruction of evidence linked to Tillman's death, including his personal journal, led his mother to speculate that he was murdered.[31] General Wesley Clark agreed that it was "very possible".[32][33]"

In the case of Michael Ruppert they let it slide, but did steal his computer.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

Surprised Mr. Ruppert is still with us.

Others like Terrance Yeakey left us for other reasons, but by the same ppl.

The secret police is targeting honest citizens folks.

NRC Expects Applications To Operate Reactors Beyond 60 Years

Ex-MislTech Re:Training is allowed (135 comments)

The funny thing is it is just data, and a copy could be exported, setup in a parallel system
to just act as a backup for awhile, confirm it is keeping parity, then do a cutover during a long
holiday and do testing.

If it has issues return to the old system til the issues are worked out.

Its amazing how fear drives some places to hold onto legacy ancient gear.

In 2007 Dell was running on a Tandem mainframe supported by COMPAQ/HP.

And that is totally hilarious with it being Dell.

NRC Expects Applications To Operate Reactors Beyond 60 Years

Ex-MislTech Re:Oh NRC... get your crap together (135 comments)

If the engineers and safety ppl have top say in the matter it would likely be ok.

The problem is the money men and bean counters often end up with top
say and that doesn't end well as seen in other boondoggles.

Ron Paul Raises over 3.5 million in one day

Ex-MislTech Ex-MislTech writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Ex-MislTech (557759) writes "WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, aided by an extraordinary outpouring of Internet support Monday, hauled in more than $3.5 million in 20 hours. Paul, the Texas congressman with a Libertarian tilt and an out-of-Iraq pitch, entered heady fundraising territory with a surge of Web-based giving tied to the commemoration of Guy Fawkes Day. Fawkes was a British mercenary who failed in his attempt to kill King James I on Nov. 5, 1605. He also was the model for the protagonist in the movie "V for Vendetta." Paul backers motivated donors on the Internet with mashed-up clips of the film on the online video site YouTube as well as the Guy Fawkes Day refrain: "Remember, remember the 5th of November.""
