Just by chance started watching it a bit ago.

It has been pretty interesting, kinda like watching a space shuttle mission. Those remote operated vehicles are kinda cool to watch work.

What do you all think is going on.. I think they are trying to open this thing up for pumping in the mud.

I'm watching, but I'm getting waving lines in my feed that is making identification of the activity nigh impossible.

It seems they have stopped whatever they were doing... maybe they are waiting for the water to clear.. I'll check back in a bit.

Edit: They are working again.

All I see is bubbles...oh and BTW they turned off the gas flare about noon today that they were burning off the gas they were collecting with the "tube" so it must not be collecting any longer.

edit: the oil and bubbles coming out now are a light brown color...

Are there three major plumes? They are showing two camera angles - one with one plume and one with two. I have noticed this before.

Yeah, they pulled out some kind of T shaped pin. Dang that light was bright.

Pretty smooth exchange, definitely better than I could do with those controls...

Looks like it worked like a champ. I just started watching cam and you cannot see a bit of oil coming out. Great job BP!

Oh crud the guy just poked a hole in the thing because he kept poking it with a giant metal stick. IDIOT!

Somebody needs to tell that guy that he better stop before he pokes another hole in that thing. What is his problem? Is he a terrorist? It almost looks like he is trying to break it.
