    I have my own "pole pig" ;)
    In fact, got it when I met @Bull in Ferguson, about a year before Mike Brown's
    Darwin Award application was filed. Go Figure! Had breakfast at the Cracker Barrel...
    10 kVA transformer. In a video on youtube, they claimed it weighs 300-400# but BULL picked it up out of his Explorer, and placed it in my F150 bed. Made it look EASY.
    That's why they nicknamed him BULL. Heckuva Man!

  2. Damn! Seen a couple of guys pull 4 cylinder engines like that, but they’re mostly just a matter of leverage. Transformers are just plain old HEAVY as hell.

    For starters, the US needs its grid controls off of the public internet; or fire walled off of the net. A big job; but the sooner started; the sooner done. They could also standardize control software and then look for anomalies with a product called (or similar to) "Tripwire".

    While "Nothing is impossible for the man who does not have to do it," that is one set of solutions. If utilities do not want to use firewalls, well, bandwidth and PC's are cheap.

    Our country is full of CCP members so it would be a waste of time. Lots of internet users running of satellite too.

    I believe that the power grid has it's own dedicated "INTRA-NET" and it would be easy to implement, they are already tied together 100% anyway... think about it.
    100% WIRED TOGETHER... Data transmission on power lines is a thing too.

    Tripwire is a unix/linux-based host intrusion detection system. Mostly scans for file changes.
