    The P&O Aurora ship has been effectively stuck in and around Southampton
    Docks because
    of a problem with its electric motor propulsion.
    It made me think how reliable this most basic bits of technology is, relying
    on just a few mil/thou of varnish/enamel on all those millions of
    miles of copper wire in motors, transformers, solenoids and coils
    dotted around the world. Hostile environments of heat, g-forces
    and vibration etc.
