    Just noticed in Elon's instagram post today of the test "sled" running in a tunnel very similar to the tunnel they had the student competition in... any thoughts?

      Spoiler warning - - this post contains spoilers for the play "Waiting For Godot"


      Is it just me or is naming the first boring machine after a character who never arrives, and by implication will never arrive, setting a low bar?

        I liked the twitter suggestion to name it Doug (Dug).

          Yes, I would like a portion of the tunnel to be lit by many tiny LED lights so that you would get a kind of jump to hyperspace effect ;)

            I think it is the student tunnel and the same sled. Tunnel is still there I think they are just using it to test the electric sled system for Boring. He went on a tweet storm about this today.

              <Snicker> The title of the play is a spoiler for "Waiting for Godot". Not to mention a complete synopsis.

              And despite the name, The Boring Company seems more interesting.

              Thank you kindly.

              p.s. Sorry about the Eng Lit flashback.

              Seems more like "The Iceman Cometh".

                    It's going to have to go a lot deeper than that.
                    Note the brand new footbridge in the background.
                    Note there are new tunnel sections fresh on the flatbed. Seems they really are continuing to dig. Does anyone know how far it is from this point to the end of their property line?
