Good for you! You threw down the gauntlet.
I think I get where you're coming from now. :-)
I know the answers from both a practical and theoretical point of view.
I asked for your professional assessment of the exposure of New York City to a blackout if all coal fired plants went offline because the rail bridges supplying the coal were destroyed. If you don't have sufficient knowledge to address the question, then just say "I don't know". It's no reflection on your skills or knowledge. Your input was solicited because of your prior involvement in power and blackout issues.
I'm asking the question because my program sponsor at the Federal Railway Administration is concerned about monitoring 55 critical rail bridges. My current work involves monitoring railcar bearings using digital signal processing techniques to identify a frequency signature against a database of known defect frequency signatures. This defect analysis is a spinoff of work my group did for the Navy to identify defects in the E2C aircraft engines. We're also working up an analysis profile for the titanium diapraghm coupler between the engine shafts of the Osprey aircraft to detect approaching failure. I do have an little experience with rotating shafts in critical machinery.
Back to the topic. Is New York exposed if we lose the coal fired power plants?
OK now center around a hotel near the with suites and we got it ;) How about one near Pepperdine?
I love it! This is a great story.
Now see what you helped do, nully, your friskiness got JP pissed at me for defending _Jim. I have a soft spot in my heart for most people and it can be a weakness that only gets me in trouble! So many times I restrained myself from butting in and adding my 2 cents when feathers got ruffled on this thread, but I couldn't resist today with _Jim. I am a pacifist, a volatile pacifist, but a pacifist nonetheless. :)
I have never posted an EOM message before, don't have a clue if this one is significant?

Uprising is coming everywhere and attacks will begin inside Amerikkka. Laugh as you wish you have not much longer There are truths to the words of EOM you will see you amerikkkan will all burn

Yes, Ma'm. We all heard that. You Chicagoans are a hearty bunch! LOL!
Nully, CUT IT OUT!
Yes ma'am. *looks down* *shuffles feet* I'm sorry.
*cringing* yes ma'am.
Amen. Quix this is your best post:)
You know, _Jim would probably say, "Why the heck did you [meaning me] get involved?" I am sure he doesn't care. But that is my soft soft; I always feel like interceding to make peace (even if I myself leave hurricanes wherever I go!). Instead of restraining myself this time, I jumped in. I probably shouldn't have. I wish I didn't because I know it really is none of my business.
Thank you nully, _Jim and all others for not telling me to butt out.
