clodcomplex: ski9600: This is smoked prime rib.  I didn't have smoked prime rib until about 5 years ago.  I had only had the roasted version and I guess I like that.  So, when I tried a smoked prime rib it was really an assault on my tasting buds.  I would not order smoked prime rib again.

/I have very strong opinions on this, but I'd like to hear yours.

My general opinion is that prime rib and filet are overrated as cuts, and I'd rather have a ribeye or a porterhouse


I attended tech school at Keesler AFB back in '72 and in the town of Gulfport was a restaurant (The Steak Pit) that served a 'blue plate special' sized porterhouse, cooked over an open flame of pecan wood. Came with a large baked potato with all the fixins and side of green beans & bacon bits or an ear of corn and rolls. Calories galore.

Our school shift was 5pm to midnight (sucked) but on Friday nights, five or six of us managed to get there before closing. Good eats.

VP Pence is not expected to attend President Trump's sendoff at Joint Air Force Base Andrews tomorrow morning, per White House officials. He is attending the inauguration later in the day, and aides say it would be logistically challenging for the vice president to do both.

"During gimballing, the hydraulic system associated with the core stage's power unit for Engine 2, also known as engine E2056, exceeded the pre-set test limits that had been established. As they were programmed to do, the flight computers automatically ended the test.

The specific logic that stopped the test is unique to the ground test when the core stage is mounted in the B-2 test stand at Stennis. If this scenario occurred during a flight, the rocket would have continued to fly using the remaining CAPUs to power the thrust vector control systems for the engines."

I get being conservative, but if these values are expected in your test, shouldn't your limits be outside of them?

This does not give me a warm fuzzy about moving forward.

No, because you're in a test stand with structure all around, not in flight, so a gimbal move that's safe in flight is dangerous on a test stand. Also, if everything explodes, finding the reason for the fault is much harder than if you shut down as your faulting but before the RUD*.

This is also related to the fundamental rule of launches: Until T-0, any error halts, if you cannot halt, you abort. After T-0, you make DAMN SURE something's wrong before you abort, because cutting off thrust leads to bad outcomes, esp. right off the pad.

Very similar to the V1 rule in flight. Before V1, ANY alert and you abort takeoff. After V1, you takeoff and work it in the air because you don't have the runway to stop and what's beyond the runway breaks planes.

If you cannot fully test your gimbal on the ground, you have unsatisfied requirements.

If you can't get a full flight profile on the stand, you are missing data.
