No real exciting news regarding the public facing stuff over the past 24 hours. Some of us have been lost in a grant proposal due today, some have yet more proposals to squeeze out. It's grant writing season. I've been playing with the new UPS's and some random php code. Jeff and I are making plans for our big preparatory power outage on Monday. We'll be switching all kinds of servers off and on over the course of a few hours, cleaning up cables, reducing the number of power strips, installing/implementing the new UPS's, moving stuff around on the racks, perhaps removing some things. Basically want to do as much as possible to make the real outage at the end of the month as smooth as possible. Once we settle on the real plan we'll post a warning message on the front page.

The current thread naming convention over the past week or so has been random songs from my record collection that are relatively obscure, usually greater than 10 minutes in length, and with unique enough names to be identified by those who know them.

. . . as i believe - mentioned: again - Thanks for

Grembo Zavia (Nov 08 2007)

Tenemos Roads (Nov 09 2007)

. . . and this happens to be some really 'brilliant' lyrics Sir


Don’t break the illusion
I love you the way I dream of you
I don’t want to know
I’m happily guessing like dreamers do

by keeping me blind,funny valentine,
you show me who I am
and make me like what you see
when you look at me

if knowledge is secret
I won’t say you shared it and break my oath
but bridgeing the gap
and drawing some stupid «map» ,may hurt us both

I won’t leave no message,I’ll just shut my mouth
and keep dreaming golden dreams...

Unless I missed something, "the real outage" would be... for closet cleanup?

Good question: the "real outage" will be to do some more main breaker analysis and upgrades (still trying to clean up and fix the electrical problems that caused the whole lab to lose power a year or two ago). This is entirely managed by campus and not the SETI project, but is affecting our power nevertheless.

Please don't forget to make some before-and-after photos of the closet!

Chien d'espace is French for "space dog". Tenemos roads means "We have roads" The first word is Spanish for "We have".

Well in that case Matt, you guys need to make your voice heard a little bit more on Campus. If it wasn't for projects like Seti, UCB would not have the worldwide renown it currently has.

Good question

Thanks; the part I was worried I missed was maybe something equivalent to the shutdown of classic just before BOINC was started... 0-0

[Not that I personally know what that was like; see my signup date of 04/07...]

No - BOINC and Classic SETI ran concurrently for x (x>2 !) months before the final shutdown of Classic. I heard (I had just joined...) that the staff had stopped sending out new Classic WU's about 4 months before the final shutdown. (Deadlines were tighter then!)

What would French be for space kitties?

Too literal; few languages take to using nouns as adjectives as easily as English does, and French idiom is rather picky about the use of articles. _Chatons de l’espace_ might fly—so to speak. ;)

Umm, the client connections stats (or its' connection to its data) is broken again - time for another kick in the database!

In fact "un chien d'espace" should read "un chien de l'espace".
