@jlw fixed the BBS title you may want to put this back to the Boing category if needed.

And glad I don’t have to use that bridge as a habit.


Seems again we’re hearing about cracked and deteriorating anchor rods on the new span of the Oakland Bay Bridge.

We’re hearing about it “again,” because SFGate ran this story almost a year ago.

“The span that should be named for Emperor Norton, appears to be just fine.”

I shouldn’t laugh, but I have been drinking, again.


It’s a portent of catastrophe! [taken from article due to laziness]

But no problems with the old part of the bridge. Obviously there’s some kind of materials science artistry that older builders knew but has now been lost to us.

OK. I am removing the post from the front page, and closing the BBS thread because a reader has correctly identified that this post isn’t as timely as I had hoped.

Everyone relax.

**Post seems to be taking its own sweet time to drop from the front page, but I trust it will and have asked @rob to look at it at his leisure. Thanks
