Re: Writing "how to" documentation is very much like programming
And CPUs use "out of order execution" today... If you have the money several hundred CPUs at the same time. They become more and more human.

They are taught "The Pledge of Allegiance of the United States" every day from their first school day.
And if you don't comply they will call the "school police officer" since you are a "disturbance", and you, as a six year old kid, are put into solitary confinement. I.e. you are forced to be in a different room for detention, forced to sit at a table which is build so you cannot see any other pupil in that room, and being verbally tortured by a "teacher" in the best Full Metal Jacket style, and write whatever the teach says. That Simpsons thing Bart does in every opening is not a joke, though he doesn't have to sit at those solitary confinement tables.
We, as German, remember when this was common in Germany. And ISIS ISS and all the other fanatics follow the same logic as US schools do.

IF you have a log what was deleted and where... And invest the time to actually know that was what happened, and invest the time to actually do it. Your idea sounds nice, but the reality is: You need to make 100% sure it works on every machine, and that can only be done by doing it fresh.
This is where Vista was the first Windows OS that silently redirected such writes to %userprofile%\AppData\Local\VirtualStore . My "Windows" directory there is full of .ini files, and many of them with fresh last change date. Like cool.ini, since I still use Cooledit 2000 on Win11 x64. I also have a "ProgramData" and "Program Files (x86)" there, which is not surprising and contains the expected suspects.
In my opinion: A GENIUS move to to do that since Vista, solves a lot compatibility issues.
BTW: The same goes for the registry, check your HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\VirtualStore.
Use "Paste without formatting" which pastes only the text and excludes a chunk of other nonsense.
Microsoft sadly uses the "We are intelligent and have to help the user, he might want to keep all that formatting from the Text. But oh no, we pasted it, but it is from the internet, we don't trust it" logic.
For a simple reasons: Those reactor elements have enough distance to keep the chain reaction from starting. Those elements are burned out. The water is there to take the neutrons they still radiate. Depending on the reactor type those elements must stay there for five to fifteen years.
Take away one of those three conditions and your element cooling installation will change the state. Either the water will change to gaseous state, or the elements will change to liquid state. Or both.
The water is, btw, not really just distilled. It often contains neutron moderators/absorbers to store more elements in the same space, and the concentrations must be controlled. Which adds a fourth condition to the "don't take that away" list.
Oh, that dam failure is a nice comparison! Even though is it a baaad disaster: The area is not contaminated with invisible non-smelling radiation which will be there for the next 100+ years. Chornobyl area is a good comparison. It was 36 years ago, now some russian solder went a bit rough with the ground and suffer from something that happened in that area 15+ years before they were born.
"Actually, my comment on safety of nuclear power was a joke."
You have to use irony tags. Especially since 2016 when everything which once was meant ironical or as a joke turned out to be worst possible truth. And everything which was meant to be true and honest turned out to be the irony of real life.
My irony detector broke down fully when COVID and those "Querdenker" popped up in Germany.
> Fusion products helium, hardy a dangerous by-product.
Fusing two H atoms the current way with deuterium and / or tritium, you get one or more leftover neutrons. Also known as beta-radiation. Those end up in the walls of the reactor, making the reactor walls radioactive, and hot, and that generates the energy. Even without deuterium or tritium you'll end up with radiation. Have fun checking the truth in my words - they are real.
Hundreds of people every day worldwide from coal? I'd say that is an understatement! There must be a lot more! One hundred is currently the COVID death-rate each day of UK or Germany alone. Walking on the sidewalk in a non-dangerous area with the sidewalk in good condition is deadlier than coal when looking world-wide.
Radioactivity: It makes large areas inhabitable. The radioactivity from 1986 is still measurable worldwide, and kills at least as much as coal. The one from 2011 too. It is neither more safe or cheaper. Check those many World Radioactivity Maps
I am surprised how many Brit seem to fall for lobbyists, believing when they say "it is safe". But there were quite a few bad decisions lately in Brit which they really really regret. They really really regret listening and trusting to that one guy, especially fishermen. But don't worry, we have more idiots than good here in Germany as well - COVID exposed them without mercy.
and completely ignoring the nuclear waste problem, 'cause that cost is shift over to the state. Worldwide unsolved.
A solar cell going boom? A local problem within a square meter, no permanent damage. Batteries going boom? A few square meter, usually without permanent damage, a bit cleanup might be required (except when baldy implemented you lose your house, limited damage area). A large wind turbine going boom? Depending on the direction a few hundred square meter of trash cleanup. Nothing permanent, can be recycled.
Nuclear going boom or just a little bit wrong? History tells us what to learn, you just need to listen. And don't forget those many little happy accidents which didn't make it to the news 'cause companies kept quiet instead of reporting it. And now switching to countries where the nuclear "control" is of no importance to the leaders.
Fusion will make it a bit better once it works, but there is a waste problem as well. Just on a (yet) smaller scale and easier to control. And if the control fails the reactor shuts down instantly by design. But we are not there yet, will take at least 20+ years.
Of course you can memorize your simple generic passwords.
Mine are usually of this style (the "can still type it" variant):
You memorized them? Oh, you are a special one!
...when it comes to programming what their perfect spec and flawless outline describes.They always include every special case, and never change or add a features during implementation. And they never give in into political changes about their projects, even a government commission never fails these important steps.
