Those are bookcases? o.O

I think so. There's a phone or something on one of them.

Ok, I'll assume it's a phonecase then.

That's a nice library. Well lit. TVs. Plenty of space. Too bad for the lack of books.

Because they didn't get any pictures yet they could print, store in foldes and store those folders in the bookcase (which would of course then be labeled as a foldercase).

Mine was stuck at the 12:30 update, but seems to be working again (after refresh).

It's really not.

We've yet to see a status in the update box to quantify what the harpoons think of this whole endeavor. I'd imagine they'd have some opinion, with so much counting on them.

Just Received via my personal AP news wire....

News Flash
From: Un-named source
Location: EAS Mission Control (Not in space)
Subj: WHODAT

An un-named source at the EAS Rosetta mission control center has just announced that due to concerns including possible failed top thruster on the landing craft, possible penetration failures of standard mooring harpoons (as expressed by worried but brave landing module), and photographc evidence of multiple (possible hostile) quetion marks, it is initializing a previously unannounced backup system.

WHODAT (Whale Harpoon Operational Deployment and Test) has been initialized as a backup to the standard rock harpoon system. Our source states the WHODAT system was kept secret out of fears that GreenPeace would attempt to buzz the comet with Zodiac rafts in order prevent the landing.

All the more reason for Rosetta to be worried. They're going to be spending a long, long time together.
