#3143487 We are Under Attack

Posted by catfang on 20 December 2014 - 12:40 PM

My knowledge in this area is limited but I think that when the major grids are segmented into microgrids it means that if a problem occurs, the impact can be limited.  For example, when Sandy hit New Jersey, each microgrid within NJ was able to operate indendently.  Of course, the storm damage was widespread so many microgrids's were impacted.  But the transformers taken out by the storm had no impact in neighboring states, even though they were on the same major grid. 

 

Mine is too, but I think the difference between natural damage vs. a hack is that I think the hackers can force transformers to overload, etc and severely damage them, whereas during a natural event they are protected from too much damage by breakers, switches, etc. I know the goal of a hack is to attack SCADA or PLC systems anyway, like we (or someone else) did to Iran.  

One thing for sure is that if we were sleeping on any of this before, we just got a bigtime wakeup call.

#3142657 The biggest influence in Rock music?

Posted by catfang on 19 December 2014 - 11:45 AM

Little Richard?

Elvis?

Bill Haley and the Comets?

The Beatles?

The Who?

The Stones?

The Doors?

Zeppelin?

Pink Floyd?

Jimi?

 

My point is this.  When you want to say the biggest influence in rock you cant make a case for a band that hasn't had an opportunity to have a real legacy.  Nirvana made an impact, that is an unquestionable fact.  As the face of the Seattle scene, they were the beneficiaries of a movement away from the overproduced hair metal that dominated the rock music world of the early 90s.

 

But...

 

The Beatles, Zeppelin, The Who, and The Stones have influenced and inspired generations of musicians and they stand on the shoulders of Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash who in turn owe everything to the 30s era blues titans.

 

You want to talk about biggest influences in Rock and to do it seriously you have to talk about the heads of Record companies, and producers, and sound engineers.

 

Take Rick Rubin for example.  I would argue that he had more influence that Nirvana.  Since 1983 there probably isnt one person who has had a greater impact on steering the music industry and deciding what we all hear.

 

Phil Spector, too I'd say...

#3129931 Any of you like customizing your rifles/shotguns?

Posted by catfang on 11 December 2014 - 10:58 AM

I purchased my Bushmaster with red dot from buds for $699.  This website sales plane bushmater without red dot for $719.

 

CF is local and you can pick up without shipping costs, but not a bad price
