BP was right to not call the Top Kill procedure a success yet yesterday. As reported the oil stopped leaking for a couple of hours yesterday. If you go now to the Gulf Oil live stream you see the oil coming out of the ocean floor like before.
BP published a status update on their site.

Top Kill is still going on and BP will continue blowing mud into the leak (BP has halted it right now).
BP is also preparing another procedure in parallel called lower marine riser package (LMRP) cap containment system. Deployment would first involve removing the damaged riser from the top of the failed BOP to leave a cleanly-cut pipe at the top of the BOP's LMRP.

At least we know BP has more solutions in their arsenal to finally stop the oil from leaking.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
