Welp, phase 1 is done, approximately 2 hours worth of work for me, that took 61 hours of billable time, to get done. Phase 2 should start next week (maybe), I'm guessing another 2 weeks to do about 2-3 hours of work. Dawd, it is so boring, I want combat pay.

Plant is down again, first it was a flow switch, then a level control, both on the turbine, not the reactor, Saturday it went down again, due to a fire in the plant's output transformer.

I sure am glad you're not working on a commission.

Milo,,, at least it isn't sinking into the ground and pulling away from the aux building,,, with wells under it freezing so they could come up with underpinning scheme,,, hahahaha Or figuring out how to "share" some of the aux equipment between units to make it more compact and "save money" meanwhile trying to ram 10# of shitt in to a 5# box. We could toss a live steam cogen on one unit for sport to make it more interesting along the way.

I'm extremely glad the flow and level switch shut the plant down when they did, that means the safety procedures actually work.

The fire on the other hand, was almost comical.

It takes a while to learn to work at that pace.
