SunDog, why did you change your avatar?  The cute pug was the only reason you had any positive karma.  You're in for it now!! :P :P

He changed it because he is our resident TiT (Troll-in-Training).  Don't you keep up with these things?

Troy,

The file you linked to is damaged, and I can't find an undamaged version to replace it.  Do you know where I could get an undamaged version?

Did you get that fixed yet?

Sounds similar to haw it was done hee. Keep in mind these were target assemblies and the reactors were built in the early 50s. Are the candadians still using natural enrichment fuel?
Today I read about a technique for driving off H3 from contaminated soil and concrete. You enclose it and heat it up to ~200 degrees F and bake it for about a weak then sample for H3 to confirm removal. The H3 is released to atmosphere.
We need an off topic monkey,similar to the trunk monkey. Nascar help us. Not,repeat not ,calling you a monkey.

Sorry, not in the clique yet.  Trying though.
In dwelling, be close to the land.
In meditation, go deep in the heart.
In dealing with others, be patient and kind.
In speech, be true.
In ruling, be just.
In business, be competent.

Yep, still using Unat for most fuel.  The Bruce plants are now using a new, slightly enriched, fuel bundle to enhance control due to the positive void coefficient that the CANDU design has.  The new generation of CANDU plants will actually us a light water HT system, D2O Moderator system, and slightly enriched fuel to enhance performance and provide better safety margins.  Will also have the great byproduct of reducing our H3 exposure as well :)

I know this is off topic and everything, and I'm sure some one will call me a troll...

But I never realized that The Queen of England is also the Queen of Canada, as well as 15 other countries.


She even has a representative in Canadian government, the Governor General, who is the personal represetative of the Queen.  Here is a better explanation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Governor_General_of_Canada
