I believe they were planning on completing the detachable collectors for backup.. just in case the relief well fails?? But what I don't get is if
the relief well fails, won't there be a hole down there where the oil can leak out?
Edit.. going to see if there are any current tech briefs.. back in a few.
Even thought your comments weren't in response to anything I posted, you stepped up. I'm good with that. This thing is so off the charts it is easy
to get lost in it. As I said, we are all on edge.
And the crap just keeps getting deeper. As far as I can tell most of the people in this forum have a pretty good idea of what is going on in our
world & we're all just trying to find our way. But, I'm getting off topic now so I will leave it at that.
A little note to those of you who use Windows Media Player to watch a feed...like open the feed in the program itself. (close Windows Media Player if
open) Right click the feed on the web page of the one you want to watch. Select options. Performance tab, and select your internet speed if its set to
auto. Then apply settings. Refresh page. Solves 90% of my freeze issues.
Now that will also save to Windows Media player when you open it separately to watch a feed...if you want to get a bit more fancy... Put WMP inclassic
mode, select tools, options, Performance, under video acceleration select Advanced settings, Check box of use video mixing renderer and check use high
quality mode. Will make a big difference in my opinion. Also allows for you to fool with the color settings a lot easier.
And just so you know...windows media player hates to be run with this many feeds at once on a web page. I learned...so even stopping the feeds does
not always work. Its just a mess...
So I just pulled up one of Morpheas new feed pages (thanks btw!) and I noticed something odd. Someone in one of the above threads hypothesized that
there are more ROV's at the site then we are getting feeds for. I believe that is true now.
Let me explain my setup, I'm using a Mac with Safari & the WMV converter, Flip for Mac. When I open the page, the feeds have to cache before I can
view them. I normally work out of Firefox, so I open Safari, go to Morpheas' cam feed page and switch back to Firefox while the feeds cache.
Usually when I switch over to take a look at the feeds I scrub the timeline to see if there is any movement. All cameras where stationary. But in one
camera's view I could see a ROV's lights moving by. I double checked the active feeds and none of them moved during that time. The feed I saw
movement on was the Olympic Challenger - ROV 2, time code on it's screen was around 6:44. Skandi Neptune - ROV 1 did show some movement but not for
10mins later, around 6:55.
Thoughts? You all have been watching these feeds more than I have & I would like to now your opinion on what I just saw.
I'm gonna try and take some screen shots of the movement. I will post them back here if successful.
So this is my 3rd attempted to edit this post to insert the video. The site is taking any of the edits, grrr. Just showing I have edited the post
without making the changes. double grrrr.
[edit on 28-7-2010 by OneisOne] - to remove extra code....
I have made a minor update to the Live BP ROV Feeds (180x135) and Live BP ROV Feeds (315x235) pages.. I moved the most active to the top. I've also
made a third page that just has the six most active feeds.
I have been watching boa 1 and all day there have been what looked like explosions (I could be wrong lol)....but now there is something in the
background with green lighting and the structure looks all messed up....I can't tell what the structure is and I can't read the writing on the
bottom of the screen to say where it is....but I think it said BOP sonar sweep....this area has been having these outbursts A LOT......does anyone
I am in no means trying to be off topic...
I thought this kind of tied in due to yet another spill
and media being denied access. This is ALL to weird.
Media not allowed to the Michigan oil spill
[It’s looking like the oil spill from a pipeline into the Talmadge Creek in Calhoun County is going to be a replay of the BP oil spill in the Gulf
of Mexico in at least one respect — the companies, aided by the government, do not want the media to have access to take pictures
and video of what is going on. The Michigan Messenger’s Todd Heywood is on the scene and was turned away from one of the primary sites by employees
of Enbridge, the company that owns and operates the pipeline.]
Legislator calls spill worst in Midwest history
[Patrick Daniels, president and CEO of Enbridge, says 19,000 barrels, or about 789,000 gallons, of oil was released. But Rep. Mark Schauer (D-Bedford
Township) says the Environmental Protection Agency estimates just under one million gallons of crude oil was sent spewing into Talmadge Creek and then
into the Kalamazoo River.
Can someone please tell me what is going on in the live feed from boa1? It has been exploding all day and seems to be getting worse. I just watched
one a few minutes ago and the smoke flashed bright blue....it was not the rovs or anything....big chunks of rock or something were flying out from it
in all directions. I am so scared right now....does anyone know what it is? What are all these explosions?
There seems to be alot of debris floating around on skandi2,it looks as if
the seafloor is erupting,but its realy hard to tell,maybe on of you guys that watch this more than i do can make a better observation..
