The Reversed View of Massachusetts: Somerville Electric Light Company, Somerville
Like Hatsukaichi Electric Substation was owned by a tramway company, I first thought the SELCO Generating Station has something to do with the railway right next to. But I realized an electric locomotion (not for a trolley or tram) was introduced to the US in 1895, while the station was built some six years before. Anyway, as the name Somerville Electric Light Co. suggests, it was built for supplying electricity for light, not for the railway.

Ursula K. Le Guin: “I keep Asking You Not to Buy Books from Amazon”
The readability of many best sellers is much like the edibility of junk food. Agribusiness and the food packagers sell us sweetened fat to live on, so we come to think that’s what food is. Amazon uses the BS Machine to sell us sweetened fat to live on, so we begin to think that’s what literature is.
I believe that reading only packaged microwavable fiction ruins the taste, destabilizes the moral blood pressure, and makes the mind obese. Fortunately, I also know that many human beings have an innate resistance to baloney and a taste for quality rooted deeper than even marketing can reach.

mysql - Roughly how long should an "ALTER TABLE" take on an 1.3GB INNODB table? - Server Fault | https://serverfault.com/
My problem was a pending metadata lock; see https://stackoverflow.com/a/23757255/785213.

I actually just needed to stop the web server, because the Flask-Admin application had a lock on the table metadata, and I was trying to ALTER TABLE changing column data types... wouldn't let me.

Boston IEEE Section Techsite-MBTA Milestone
An important point in the history of Boston’s electrification, is that its engineering and construction were under the direction of 27 year old Fred Stark Pearson. He was chief engineer from 1889 until 1893, when he moved to New York City to establish another electric traction project for the Metropolitan Street Railway. Pearson worked with a small group – a cluster - of engineers who followed him from job to job. Fred Pearson would spend the rest of his life building electric power and traction systems all over the world. But that is another story.

Pearson’s design signature was non-stop electrical systems. Reliability through strength and reliability by redundancy were design principles which he applied throughout his career. Electrical and mechanical systems were arranged for non-stop service. Steam system at CPS was duplicated throughout. Everything in the power plant was redundant. Even countershafts were connected by duplicate leather belts! An elaborate electric testing station was installed for testing feeders, armature insulation and to calibrate instruments. Comprehensive testing and preventive maintenance programs were established in the absence of industry standard practices.
