    Have some information on the TeraFactory build schedule.
    Telsa is sourcing out vendors / contractors to bid on work at the site.

    Drum roll please on estimated on First Substantial Completion -

    ( Substantial completion is the stage when a construction project is deemed sufficiently completed to the point where the owner can use it for its intended purpose. This definition of substantial completion is based on the language in the American Institute of Architects form contract AIA A-201:)

    Would you please stop with this “Tera-“ nonsense? If for no other reason, although there are plenty, it diminishes any material you would like to contribute.

    And....”Can I get some likes?”? Word.

    Sounds optimistic for keeping on schedule for end of 2021.

    Why is it nonsense? If the CEO calls it Tera, who are we to object?

    Except that he isn't doing that. "Arguably" and "could" is not the same as "is" - even in Elon-speak.

    “Anymore” ≠ “Vacation”

    For crying in the mud, if you’re going to go Full Frontal Texan about this, why that pissant “Tera” term? Call it a PetaFactory. Call it an EkaFactory. Call it a LumaFactory.

    Words matter. Abuse them, and they become meaningless. That’s why not.

    A Q for those of you in Austin / Travis County:

    That red earth that forms most of the submaterial the GF site developers have been leveling - is that relatively benign in wet weather, or does it act like Louisiana gumbo or Georgia clay or Wyoming bentonite or other slicker 'n otter snot unmentionable ~~~:mad:~~~ ?

    I've lived several places in the Austin metro area. Round Rock had nice topsoil but you couldn't dig 3 inches without hitting solid rock (it's named after a different rock). Pflugerville had mostly reddish clay with poor absorption and high volumetric variance with moisture content that ruined the foundation of my house during a drought (apparently I was supposed to know that I need to water my foundation? whaaa). However, that's on the the North end of TX130, and I imagine much of the topsoil at the (giga/terra/ultra)factory site is sedimentary from the nearby Colorado.

    tl;dr: i dunno
