    Now THAT's interesting! We're seeing some movement from outlnder. Just a couple of boxen. I thought he had more or less completely retired.

    But hey, it's all points for Free-DC, so it works for me. Bring 'em on.

    I threw together some old P4s and a laptop. Thought I might help you guys a little until the Primegrid Challenge next week.

    I'm here for 7 more days. I've got Kahlua and peppermint schnapps, oh and hot chocolate. I can also make some chocolate chip cookies.

    Dunno about jumping seats (sounds kind of painful), but we just put the on Xtrem Team Boinc Addicted.

    Free-DC now in 47th place and about to put the stomp on Team Sci-Fi, Guru Mountain and Nordlichter, to be followed in a couple of days by TitanesDC, Coast to Coast AM BOINCers and Sicituradastra, in that order. Ought to leave us around 40th place overall.

    I LIKE IT!

    Having Lauren get fired up on a project is like strapping an afterburner to your butt!

    outlnder, they've been having a mini outage every few days. Nothing long or consistent, just enough to be irritating. Cure is to have a day's backlog of WU's.

    Lauren, you're absolutely right. I had forgotten the lesson of that first "flight" you posted. Looks like the second guy has his stuff together a LOT better! I get a bad case of pucker thinking about that first one.

    Saturday morning, we're in 41st place and Docking is having server problems. Lauren, I think we (meaning you) sucked them dry!

    Sure hope they can get their act together.

    This is from the Docking site:
    "We are recovering from the earlier problem, but we need to keep generation of new work low during this weekend. So, you may experience work starvation for a while. Thank you for your patience!!"

    You sucked 'em inside-out!

    Well, they're definitely holding down the number of WU's for release. Had my buffers set for 3 days and it looks like I'm getting about a day and a half's worth right now. At least the work seems to be steady, although I notice the newest WU's are also taking longer. Ah, well, we plugs on along.

    Wow! That's a LOT of bad supplies. I wonder why PS's go bad so often. That's undoubtedly the main thing that goes wrong with PCs - at least with MY PCs. I just figure on replacing them every couple of years. Dunno - guess that comes from running the machines all the time, crunching Work Units.

    Fortunately, they are cheaper than CPUs or motherboards.

    19 Power Supplies! Yikes! Crunching in the summer is tough. I try to watch for PS's on sale. Always got at least a couple new-in-the-box around the place.

    outlnder: Thanks for the boost on yer way through, buddy. We're now in 36th place. Polish National Team bites the big one tomorrow.

    Gettin' better all the time, as the song sez.

    Sorry to hear about your troubles, gopher. It seems like most of these projects are created with great fanfare by the university's top researchers, who disappear once the thing starts running. An inadequate staff of underpaid, undertrained and undersupported undergrads is left to (under)manage the show. Professional sysadmins wouldn't put up with a fraction of the crap that goes on. But then again, a professional sysadmin wouldn't work very long with shoestring funding and dicey equipment. It's really a shame, but it seems to happen in a lot of DC projects. The Docking admins have been apologizing a lot, lately. That shouldn't be necessary. It could be worse, I guess. At least they seem to care about the users.

    And oh yeah, Free-DC just passed the 5,000,000 mark in Docking.

    Lauren, with your Thundering Herd galloping along, keeping count is definitely tougher.
    The ride sure isn't boring when you're afterburnered.

    gopher, that's good news!

    Now if we could figure out what happened to the Bokmeister...

    Guess we'll just have to keep watching for him to appear.

    Sorry, Lauren. Severe shortage of *moving* targets in your class.

    Apparently, azc is still searching for a home. He/she's moved to L'Alliance Francophone, of all teams! Who knows?
