Mesozoic Mister Nigel

Quote from: Doktor Howl on February 19, 2015, 03:01:31 AM
So, over the last few days, I have been troubleshooting a machine that is working as intended.

In short, a certain feedstock won't mill properly in the small jet mill.  We have taken it apart 3 times, and nothing is wrong.  I checked the compressors, and they are going balls out.  No issues.

They tried the feed in the big jet mill, and it didn't work there, either.  One might assume the feed stock is bad.

But no.

I spent the day at the doctor's today, being poked, prodded, exsanguinated, etc, and when I got out of the torture chamber, I call to check in.  New Filthy Assistant1 tells me that they called a contractor in to check the compressors (because physics isn't a thing, and I am not to be trusted), who said everything is fine, and that they now want to take the compressor on the big mill apart to check it (it has been working fine for every other product).  AND we're going to take BOTH mills apart tomorrow.  It seems that Jim and Lilly are desperate to run this product, and reality isn't going to get in the way.  Note that when taking the mills apart, there is a greater than zero chance of shattering the ceramic, which costs $35,000 and 4 days of downtime.

I can't decide if I'm enraged or amused.  I will be wounding peoples' inner children in the conference room tomorrow.



1  Old Filthy Assistant has indeed had a stroke, and is waiting for the corporate medical board to retire him.  I don't expect I'll see him again.

Wow.  :horrormirth:

I am absolutely exhausted and should not still be up.

Got confirmation for the Peru trip today.

Next up: Losing 20 lbs so I don't stroke out and die in the Andes.

Congrats Nigel! Good luck with the weight loss.

Grandfather's funeral is today.

Last night I got in an argument with the celebrant (who is my Aunt's fiance) so... that was fun. My cousin has also gotten into a big argument with his mother so my uncle asked us to take him. Somehow this has all wound up being about petty family drama.

Very much looking forward to today being over.

Just had a brief image in my head I gotta share.

Howl getting "psychic surgery" done to cure his brain things.

Howl's just laying there with an incredulous look.
Surgeon hums and begins to put fingers into head.
Brows furl. Fingers seem stuck. He tries to pull back and can't.
just as he seems to REALLY panic *pop* spontaneous combustion.
Howl gets up says "I warned you". Leaves with the donation jar.

So there was a powwow going down in the break room when I got to work.

Found road salt on the surgical packroom floor... utoh!

If I can get the other guys to don the makeup, yes. Not sure of that's possible though. Bloody noise/improv crew and their "use everyday wear" attitudes.

And then, I'm always a fan of engaging in colorful local customs and regional remedies as well, known to to be effective for adapting to altitude.  Apparently the social climate round transit hubs in Lima is one thing to avoid, IIRC, no need to make any friends at bus/plane/train stations.  I'm sure you know this already, I kind of just wanted to participate by proxy in that adventure :). Have lots of too for us as well
