Re: West Coast Is About To Get Pummeled!

Your storms are making the news here in the UK, which makes a change from the politics :)

It's being reported that they have hit southern California hardest. That's the bit that was still in drought, IIRC, so hopefully once the immediate effects have passed it will help a bit with that?

Re: Evacuations ordered due to Oroville Dam

The scale of the dam (compared to the construction workers making emergency spillway repairs) is remarkable. This photo shows the erosion of the emergency spillway; the normal spillway can be seen in the background. http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2017/02/16/13/3D4AE03500000578-4231068-image-a-3_1487...

That's ... odd.

Maybe there's an essential IC manufacturer who has gone out of business, or discontinued a chip? That happens from time to time.

Re: Looking for a business appropriate EDC/GHB bag.

I'll second the suggestion of a laptop bag.

If you think a laptop bag is too small, pilot bags are larger but there's a smaller range on the market and prices are generally higher (although your $200 budget should give you a reasonable choice).

Re: 7.0-magnitude Earthquake Strikes Nicaragua

:( I'm not expecting Nicaragua to get away as lightly as New Zealand and Japan did.

Is it just confirmation bias or have we seen more big quakes this year than usual?

On top of all the other "earthquakes" of 2016, that it.

7.3 quake hits Japan, Fukushima province

Been away from the forum for weeks to avoid the politics.

There are reports of a 7.3-magnitude earthquake in Japan today, just before 2100 UTC. In Fukushima province.

Plus a 3-metre tsunami warning.

No reports yet of damage.
