This is somewhat technical in nature but it does give an interesting glimpse into the day-to-day troubleshooting that EECOM engineers have to do in order to solve open issues. Jim from the back room chats with Sy Liebergot and Charlie Dumis (still on console from the previous shift) about the failure of a capacitance probe and how it might have occurred. Both are particularly impatient, given that it seems to be a re-explanation of details that they already know. Dumis* does give an amusing exclamation near the end of the conversation.

Eventually, Sy just tunes out and moves on to discussing another open issue with FLIGHT - fixing the quantity balance on the H2 tanks.

* Edit: After listening to the tape a few times, I'm pretty sure that it's George Conway and not Charlie Dumis who explodes "Bullshit!" at the end of the conversation.
