BokChoy: thisispete: Cache

That link makes my browser shiat itself...



I'm on a machine with 12 gigs ram and updated Chrome, and the entire thing turned to shiat very quickly. I had to kill the tab before it consumed my soul. Maybe someone can host a slideshow or something. I didn't check, but I'm guessing someone thought it was a good idea to inline a ton of hi-res pictures.

prjindigo: That's nothing, I've got a dash cam video of chasing F15s around in a foo fighter, I can't show it to you because apple owns the image format from the alien recorder.


Because our 70 year old technology is cutting edge to shiatholes like the middle east.

Thanks. Whatever was going on with the original link was certainly evil. Almost couldn't get out before my machine assploded.

Some museums consider it a safety issue. Pictures of areas not on tour can encourage people to get off the tour route and go exploring, and even though there may be locked doors and other things keeping tourists from wandering off the route, you can't stop everyone. And a lot of unrestored spaces have all sorts of potentially nasty things. Asbestos, lead paint, or (in the case of the battleship Texas and the cruiser Olympia), if you get down far enough you might find a corroded hull plate and go sliding through into several feet of mud. So maybe the museum staff is erring on the side of not having a discussion with their insurance provider.

This makes sense, but if it's such a concern then their access restrictions need to be more robust than a "Do Not Enter" sign taped to an unlocked doorway.

That this article was by a (supposedly) genuine publication and not some urban explorer's blog implies that access to these off-the-trail areas was approved beforehand and publication was expected. Was the special tour led by someone from the museum, or were the media tourists directed to the open hatch with a cheerful "Through there. Have fun!" Did someone not recognize Butterknife Boy in their midst?

Still, I checked my Firefox cache and this is the kind of thing you're missing out on.

Gulper Eel: The Intrepid is cool, but if you happen to be driving there on a Sunday morning, do NOT park on West 43rd even if it looks like there's on-street parking available and the only sign says "no parking M-F".

Bloomberg's thieving minions will ticket you anyway and the only way you get out of it is to show photographic proof that there's no other no-parking sign up for the entire block.


==============

If you're coming from Jersey, the easiest way to see the ship is to park in the NY Waterway ferry terminal lot in Weehawken, and take the ferry over to the 38th street terminal. The museum is only a couple of hundred yards from the ferry terminal.

threadjackistan: PvtHike: What's the big deal? They keeping JFK and Elvis down there or something?

I think it's more likely that they promised to maintain the ship and have instead allowed it to slowly be consumed by rust.


From the pics that I saw, it's the underlined part above.

Improv Everywhere MP3 Experiment 10.

For our latest mission, over 4,000 people participated in an epic water gun battle rust scraping of the Intrepid as part of our ninth tenth annual Mp3 Experiment event. Participants downloaded an MP3 file and pressed play simultaneously on Pier 86 in New York City. The MP3 file contained a series of ridiculous Olympic-themed instructions from narrator "Steve The Omnipotent Voice from Above" that culminated in a massive rust scraping.

Did they just comply with a friendly request? Because I'm pretty sure the Intrepid people can't force those photos to be taken down, unless the photographer was under a contract of some kind.

Photographers are the owners of their pictures, not the people who own an area where photos were taken.

I was able to snag MOST of them before it gave me this:

Voyager

really was a damn snappy looking ship without looking like a luxury liner unlike the Enterprise D. And I have to admit, I do think Voyager has aged a bit better as a series than TNG (though TNG is what got me fanatical about Star Trek and will always be a personal favorite).

My pops served on the Intrepid right after the Korean Dust-Up. He was on a peacetime Mediterranean cruise and still lost a handful of his friends to the vagaries of early carrier ops. Landing Skyraiders at night on a pitching deck was never an easy job and they didn't do a whole lot better taking off.

We went to the museum in NY once and he was allowed to visit his old stateroom which was in about the same shape as some of these pictures can attest.
