"There is some delay in the replication of our data, so our operational data, our sequence of events ends at 3 o'clock in the afternoon on the 20th."
- Steven Newman, president and CEO of Transocean Ltd, tries to explain the gap in his records to a Senate panel.


Is there any earthly reason for a seven-hour delay? There may be no Internet connectivity out there, I suppose... was satellite communication service not available? Is there no technology for faxing data via radio? Or is this as fishy as it sounds? It's definitely criminally poor design, if there was at all a requirement to preserve data to diagnose these kinds of failures.
