A massive 1.9 million pound generator slowly moves down a street on its ride from South Carolina to North Carolina. Fun Fact: There is somewhere around 575 wheels hauling it.

I would guess the crap they go through by moving it is less than that they would go through by taking it apart. Then again, maybe it has pieces too big to fit in a plane.

My question is: Why ask programmers? We aren't engineers...

SYSTEM ENGINEER knows how to program Embarassed


Somthing similar heppened in Germany about 11-13 years ago with a Giant Crane.
The problem was that disassemblyng it, and assembling it gane whould coste much more then just moving it.


I guess this is the same case.
Just for example:
Disassemblyng cost and assembling again 10 units.
Time waste 1 units.

for moving the thing
Moving cost 5 units.
Time waste 2 units.

Moving take much more time, but cost less, so I guess they prefair this way.

In our time, the only important thing is money! ( Crying or Very sad )
It is useless to look for another reason.

They can't disassemble it legally - reverse engineering is illegal in USA.

575 ?

Code:
      xor     edx,edx
     mov     ebx,2
       mov     eax,0x23F
   div     ebx
 or      edx,edx
     jz      .ok
 call    spare_tire
ok:
;---------------------------------

     mov     eax,0x23F
   push    eax
 shr     eax,1
       pop     eax
 jnc     @F
  call    spare_tire
@@:
    

There is no doubt, there has a spare tire! Wink
