I just got back from a wonderful fireworks display, and it seems there were some fireworks going on with Steorn as well. SeamusF left this message on the forums:
... they ran into some technical issues, firstly a problem with the bearings, which was fixed once identified. The next issue appears to be an environmental issue. We think possibly the temperature from the lighting system in the immediate area, but this has to be further assessed in the morning.The laws of nature are not giving up without a fight!
On another note, this is the only official word we've received from Dr. Mike:
I am in London!
No sign of Mabuse, yet.
It's late, and the beer was good. Time for me to go to bed.
Patience, persistence, truth,
