    Watching the ROV's working the well head 5000 ft down

    Has anyone watched the live feed from one of the ROV's that are they are using to work almost a mile down under the surface?
    These guys operating them are skilled, using teamwork and handing off equipment ... watched one help with a circular saw, handed it off to the other ROV to change his grip so he could position it in a previously made cut while holding on to keep still from movement caused by the boat above

    Anyone seen a skilled back hoe operator work? his fingers "dancing" on the controls ?
    .. I can imagine a similar thing going on in that ROV control room
    ...BP ROV Live Feed

    I've been trying to watch it off and on all day, since I heard they were gonna be using that saw to cut it...but not luck with it loading.

    you might have to run a microsoft addon to see the streaming vid .. it might say something to that affect up top
    ... they are cutting through with what looks like a band saw in a jig that clamped to the pipe now

    Nope, I don't get anything like that. I had streamed it before on Yahoo, they were streaming it in one of their articles. Yeah, I saw pictures of it and read a bit about it. It looked like it'd be pretty cool to see, but it's going to pour out a lot more oil into the ocean until they get what they want over it (which is supposedly going to take a few days). It's sort of a risky move, thought, because there's no guarantee that they'll be able to block off where they cut.
