I've taken the engine to a mechanic but the gravitational field keeps refusing to collapse in itself and I'm stuck with sub-dwarf star graviational fields which isn't enough to break the fabric of space

do I just add more ohms?

The USS Beetlejuice was my most prized warship. Ronald D. Moore, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and Kurt Vonnegut's sister had all consulted on its design, with additional input on its warp thrusters by none other than Mr. Charlie Brooker himself. I had redesigned the Captain's chair so as to match Captain Picard's from Star Trek: TNG, and to the right of it was a specially crafted playpen designed to suit the needs and comfort requirements of my most prized animal companion: a sassy little Mogwai named Quigley Down Under.

Unrelated to thread but how often do you see that in your line of work with nuclear plants? We have multiple things in our press system that's like "please Jesus work because they don't make this or have replacements"

Like, one of our palletizer machines runs on Windows 3.1 and the software cannot be used with a modern OS so when the computer running the machine dies, the whole set up is bricked lol

Every single outage I work, somewhat. Like we don't worry about things just suddenly not working, but the repercussions of damaging certain pieces of equipment is horrible. And I'm not talking about safety or anything. We've let our domestic manufacturing go to poo poo so loving bad that for a lot of plants, if something happens to something big and important like the reactor head or the lower internals or something, we literally don't have the capability to make them stateside anymore. It'd have to come from France or Japan or something. Even worse, the cost of replacing something like that is so high that it could very well end that unit's operation. I can't describe how critical it is that we don't gently caress something like that up.

I guess in my case it'd be more like the Rite of Holy God I Hope We Didn't Hire Giant Retards This Outage.

E: all but the most critical stuff is pretty easy to have fabricated on site though. Plants usually have one hell of a machine shop.

Ah. Yeah we are kinda the same. Lots of our internal components can only be acquired from Germany so if too many current converters explode or measuring lasers die, well, too bad. You're waiting on something to get slowboated from Europe.

17230523.01122018 NOTIFICATION: SALT DISPENSER ON STANDBY
17230525.01122018 NOTIFICATION: CHILLER UNIT ON STANDBY
Iím not sure if this is a legit problem or bad instrumentation but I am getting the price quote for a field service call from SeaBreeze Equipment.

And in case you are wondering yes my unit did have a problem where the Cointreau valve would fail to fully open and it caused the pump to cavitate itself drat near apart.

If you need me I'll be in Holodeck Four.

Has this week's firmware update been installed?

Those velour-wearing dickheads in the deep space exploration fleet accidentally opened another spacehole into a bunch of parallel universes. There are now so many copies of the flagship occupying that sector of space that the galaxy's mass has increased enough to throw a lot of star drives out of calibration.

If that's the problem be glad it went into auto shutdown. We've got a major situation out here with two heavy freighters that warped into the same navpoint simultaneously. Uranium ore and colonist sleeper pods are not two tastes that go great together!

Have you checked the quantum waveform? It's rare to have problems with it, but if it collapses early you're not gonna punch through. You're gonna need a sub-etha oscilloscope for that though.

Make sure to check right away whether he's from the Italian universe, the mustache universe, or the 1960s gay porn universe. The legal extradition processes to all of them are significantly different.
