Re: Movie time
I think movie makers everywhere love steam. It’s a surprisingly common phenomena in the movie world. Especially in American street scenes at night. Not that I’m implying that Hollywood is a load of hot air.

I posted this a few days ago on the same subject, but it got pulled by the Moderator. I really don’t understand why. No profanity, no trolling. Just exceedingly mild satire. Perhaps it hit a nerve somewhere? I’ll give it another go and see what happens!
Fawlty Server Towers.
Overheard in the IT control room at TSB server farm, Monday 23rd April 2018, 11:17 BST (of course not, it’s just a bit of fun, okay?):
Sabadell manager: “We bring sweet food, is nice, you like!”
TSB techie: “That’s awfully kind of you but we’re a bit busy at the moment.”
Sabadell manager: “Qué?”
TSB techie: “We’ll have some of it later?”
Sabadell manager: “But is nice!”
TSB techie: “Well, okay then. That’s very generous of you. Look at all the doughnuts. Surely there’s too many doughnuts on those trays?”
Sabadell manager: “No, no, no. Not ‘on those trays’. Uno dos tres!”
And TSB lived happily ever after.
“This stuff isn't rocket surgery”
I guess that’s a cross between rocket science and brain surgery?
In which case I’d say it’s at the very heart of the matter.
Rocket science – ICBMs, and brain surgery – the psychology of computer UI/human brain interaction.
Okay, a bit of a stretch, but worth it for the comedy value?

Since the cancellation of the Space Shuttle programme, I’m really looking forward to the return of manned space flight towards deep(er) space.
I’ve just finished reading NASA astronaut Mike Massimino’s thrilling biography about his time in space, repairing the Hubble Space Telescope. A cracking read, and believe me, trained astronauts know all about risk. A slightly increased risk of cancer is just one more obstacle to be dealt with, and deal with it they will.
The development of NASA’s SLS (Space Launch System) and Orion spacecraft (the successor to the Space Shuttle), is a monumental task, but it’s getting done. I for one can’t wait for SLS+Orion to be on the launch pad, ready to take astronauts to Mars. Exciting times.
