It's raining today. Good. I was weedwacking yesterday and my sneakers still stink of wild onions. Bad. Why did I wear them to work?

The systems were generally healthy over the weekend. As time goes on less and less clients are hitting kryten. And I moved its splitter process over to koloth. So the load/dependency on this system is getting less every day. Jeff has a new assimilator and validator compiled, and he's waiting on some schema changes to the science database before enacting. We'll be safe and back up the whole database first. So we're looking at wednesday. Tomorrow will be the usual outage. Will take extra time to confirm the replica is in okay shape (after last week's debacle) and measure its draw so we could determine its exact power/UPS needs.

LOL Matt.

I hope the onion smell goes away. Thanks for sending the rain over the hill into Reno. Its now snowing at 8:15pm. I'll blame you since you had to do some weed wacking. :-)

Glad all is going well for the most part with the hardware. Thank you for keeping us all up to date, its greatly appriciated.

I see that my pending credit is rapidly growing
and a big part of run units sent yesterday
are pending.
The server status page is OK but
"Workunits waiting for validation" are 74,523.

What's the matter?
Any technical problem?

Bye
Franz

Edted:
PS: now I see that this problem is open in the "Number crunching" forum
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=38499
(sure, I don't understand if a problem like this one must be
posted here or in the other forum).
