Same exact story
bigwig, showing off, etc, etc.......
Put a Full Stop to the tours though.

superpower are rapid change/mutation, it's wholly conceivable that local and geo-specific mutations can and will arise.
It's how the 'common cold' and yearly flu virii make the rounds so fast and easily. And it's why, just as we have to do with yearly flu shots, we may have to get yearly coronavirus shots for years/decades......
the suspect students and their faculty advisors list multiple affiliations, and most likely multiple email addresses and personae.
Given the 'open' activity from their umn.edu accounts, it's likely prudent to look at potential submissions from ALL of their IDs and persona, those that can be identified anyway.......
is going to cause all of us more problems than Y2K ever could.....
At work, we're in the middle of evaluating every bit of code and coding practice for 32bit integers and rolling out changes as part of our usual release schedule.
It's pretty horrific........
something that Intel, and it's veteran engineers, have been having problems with the past 5 years or so.
Is SKH a member of either OpenPower or RISC-V? They along with TMSC would certainly be in the position to enable Google to dump the billion-transistor X86 architecture for OpenPower or RISC-V.
High enough yield on the big silicon this will require, and you've a future for next-gen integrated SoCs.
It all depends on the recover/restart philosophy.
If the intent/need/promise is to recover kit and recommission it, then yes, you want different fire control chemicals and procedures than a simple 'flood the place and hope for the best' approach.
If the approach is to just put the damned fire out and who cares about the aftermath, well, a couple of hundred thousand deca-liters of water will do the job.
hand-carrying a huge load of specialized electronics to the Philippines for the benefit of the US Military. The local 'fixer' never showed up at the airport so import duties/bribes were payable, immediately, and in cash (no receipt offered).
I was so royally pissed-off that I expensed the lot on a paper expense form. Postal services being what they were in the 80s, it took a while for the form and claim to make it to my boss and then his boss.
Understand, this was immediately after the Lockheed international bribery scandal and at the beginning of the Marcos' rise to power in the PI.
Was politely asked by my then third-level boss to resubmit my expenses to him directly and "not be a smart ass about it" (direct quote). He promised to personally reimburse me for the loss of cash (which he did) and to look into the missing local fixer who was apparently paid a large retainer to prevent this sort of thing.
After that, I got my self a fixed-base assignment in Hong Kong where, at the time, local officials were almost pathologically honest.
I'm saving the story about importing a Xerox 9700 laser printer beast to South Africa for use at a remote astronomical observatory. The local trucking firm managed to roll off the mountain access road and dumped the million dollar asset down about 700 meters of rock.
There is always a second physical drive, usually lettered L: and use windows folder redirection to move my 'known folders' (except for Desktop) to L:. Which in turn mirrors to an encrypted & compressed partition back on C: And occasionally mirrors to rando space on the home NAS.
I suppose I could go full belts and braces and further mirror to OneDrive.
YMMV, but this works for me.
Might be a good what-if exercise for NASA or SpaceX to work on; what would it take in terms of a combined Crew Dragon & Cargo Dragon mission to perform a possible next round of service on Hubble?
What kind of 3 or 4 port mission support docking module could be developed, quickly, to ease the task?
