Strange print screen of them using saw now

ok this is odd. I was watching the cameras and I noticed they appeared to have a circular saw out now doing some work. My first thought was utoh now what is going to go wrong. So I took a print screen so I could share what I was seeing. Well for some strange reason the live pic with the saw came up blank. So, I took another pic. This time it came up as a live feed? Since when does a print screen come up live when you paste it? The other live feeds were just pics. I overlaid them because I thought I did something wrong. When I hit save though, it went to blank screen like the original.

Anyhow here is the pic, I have to go to work, someone might want to keep a eye on the saw before we have another new story of what went wrong today....

You may read something about "Video Hardware Overlay".

It looks like they are trying to cut that rubber ring out.

Maybe they are getting ready to take that top part off to further increase the outflow. It's been rumored that barium sulfate crystals are building up inside and beginning to restrict the flow. This is resulting in building pressure below, which could explain the pools of methane hydrates all over the freaking place down there (I saw them probing the depth of those pools earlier today).

I'm away from home right now and can't access ATS directly through this hotel connection (some content filter is restricting direct access), I have to go through a remote control connection to my home computer, so my surfing here is so slow when trying to post, otherwise I'd post some pictures of what happens to well pipes when barium sulfate crystal build-up (they form very quickly). I wonder if they are concerned about that.

It has been eerie watching the seabed the last few days.I haven't seen the methane hydrate pools but then again I took a break since my all-nighter
I do recall a couple of times on the feed from Skandi ROV 1, the one that watched the seabed for 12 hours without moving, seeing what looked like a white fog roll across the bottom a few times. The other night when i stayed up watching the feeds it did seem as some of those big cracks they have been examining were filling up with that foggy substance whatever it is

Right now it looks like they are trying to remove a bracket off the BOP.. not sure what is going on.

They are grinding bolt heads off a bracket.

I just can not understand why or what the part (tube with can) they are trying to remove.

If they just wanted to get rid of the tube and can why not just cut it.

Well it seems as though they used the saw to slice that rubber ring open in order to get a peak of what was under it.

Not sure exactly why they would do this, but they did remove some objects, a badly rusted bolt, two small metal plates that resembles, to me anyway, electric sockets, and a metal piece of pipe. Seems like we have our culprits

One additional observation, is it me or is it looking a little corroded?
