From MSNBC, it was a faulty circuit breaker that cause the fire which went up a wall to the redundant circuit breakers causing them to fail as well.

The blackout caused and is causing a ripple effect throughout the country as cancelled flights are being rescheduled.

I hate how the current definition of "redundancy" is two badly designed systems, often with a common failure point. Things like this make me depressed. I'm used to political institutions being self-destructive, but I never got used to bad engineering.

I'm more familiar with the term "redundancy" from being in England when they used it to refer to layoffs. Here, we're more likely to use "backup systems" than "redundancy/"

Backup systems is closer to their actual function. Yes around here I hear "backup" a lot.

I think I got redundancy from communication theory, where it's not required to send something multiple times, but on highly degraded circuits it's a good idea to do it anyway. It causes fewer requests for repeats, and speeds things up.

The fact remains that two shitty systems are not necessarily twice as reliable as one shitty system.

I blame Ronald Reagan, Donald Trump and Nixon.

Now the Nooz is all on about maybe it was terrorists. Yeah, right. Terrorists don't kill people to make their point. They just torch the power, and run away, and never say a word after it happens.

Not.
