    I guess this is one example where the captain DIDNT go down with the ship! (not that I blame him - I wouldn't stick around there either)

      "LOL!"? "Joke"? Oh, I'm so pleased that you are getting pleasure from this ... at least somebody benefits. I was going to ask if you were bullied at school, but since you add nothing by way of intelligent and informed debate I will reasonably surmise that you didn't spend too much time in a serious academic institution. Predictable how such vacuous and gloating commentary is always attributable to a certain personality type; one that prefers to hide behind the (appropriately named) "Anonymous Coward" pseudonym. Maybe you, in your own mind, are an aspiring "Register" journo ... acerbic and witty ... but no, at least they work in the currency of fact, and opinion supported by data. Oh, and they never, ever, do it anonymously.

          Thank You - it is sad that certain people take cheap shots at these times. Creeps like this have complete disregard for the thousands of staff, customers and partners for whom this has potentially serious consequences. I can only assume it is a function of their own inadequacies. I would love to debate these matters directly with them ... but of course that is impossible with an "Anonymous Coward".

    Very sad.

    They had nice pieces of kit. Used a few in my time, and thoroughly liked them. Reliable and nippy.

    The Churn in Storage

    For anyone that watches The Expanse - there is a scene where Amos describes The Churn. That describes the state of my industry in recent years, including the part of waiting patiently in the air lock.

    Someone saved just that section on youtube, if you need a refresher.
