So it doesn't matter whether the power is coming from the grid or from generators; the corrosion in the circuits is causing it to be used in the connections rather than in the loads.

I swear I saw a crane and a concrete truck in that picture that you linked to.
Now all they need are a couple of those ASIMO robots to operate them,

ya phage, most of that sounds good, like things are getting under control, but the latest news blurb, is Workers flee Japan nuclear plant as smoke rises
no workers there, things get out of control again?!?
this story is like being on a roller coaster.

What caused the smoke to billow first from Unit 3 at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant and later from Unit 2 is under investigation, nuclear safety agency officials said. Still, in the days since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami wrecked the plant's cooling systems, both reactors have overheated and seen explosions. Workers were evacuated from the area to buildings nearby, though radiation levels remained steady, the officials said.
At this point, I wouldn't be doing anything outside of evacuating the entire northern third of Japan, possibly to include Tokyo, to wherever I could. Of course, I doubt I would have ever gotten to this point. I would have abandoned the plant as soon as the explosion in #3 happened and started massive evacuations. We would be close to being able to entomb it by now, with much less widespread radiation contamination.
Major updates are as follows.
