This means TEPCO has brought the temperatures at the base of the Nos. 1 to 3 reactors at the crippled plant to below 100 C, meeting one of the two conditions for the reactors to be in a stable cooling state, known as cold shutdown. Compared with the Nos. 1 and 3 reactors, it took more time for TEPCO to cool the No. 2 reactor. On Sept. 14, the ut
  2. Those updates were funny, great idea. As for the Forums.... overwhelmed! But first impressions are that they look amazing.
  3. There was one on last night that went through all the conspiracy theories that was quite interesting, almost funny at times in some of the things people came out with.
  4. OK saw Mr Sunday last night after reading about it here. Pretty poor. Crystal does nothing for me I agree with the other people saying she kind of looks uncomfortable. They had a big jolly gaijin (who has turned Japanese) on, though.

  10. My PC desktop that is. Files, icons, all over the place. What a mess that was. I've gone and put them all in folders off the desktop now with some shortcuts to important stuff, got myself a nice background image and defragged etc. All looking nice and also noticeably faster. I should really do this more often. Highly recommended!

  13. Thats the problem with running, well one of them for me, the lack of variation.
  14. And what is Super Cool Biz then, the t-shirt and hawaiian shirt thing?
  15. It would make the last day quite exciting though hey?
  16. I suppose it must be because you mentioned it but I didn't think that road was open in winter... I think Nozawa + Shiga Kogen make a great holiday.
