Another Monday back on the farm. Due to faulty log rotation (and overly wordy logs) our /home partition filled up over the weekend, which didn't do much damage except it caused some BOINC backend processes to stop (and fail to restart). No big deal - the assimilators/splitters are catching up now. Jeff just kicked the validators, too. The hidden real problem is that the server start/stop script is 735 lines of python. In our copious free time we'll re-write a better, smarter version in a different scripting language (which will be, by default, easier to debug) - and it'll probably be only 100 lines or so, I imagine. Okay.. maybe 200.

The mass mail pleading for donations is wrapping up without much ado, except a large number of them got blocked/spam filtered. No big surprise there, but we need to do more research about how to get around all that.

All of 'em... Listened to that album for this first time in a decade this past weekend. Good dishwashing music.

In seven years, I have yet to receive a donation request from SETI@home, yet I get all other notifications. I send my donation in on 12/1/07 from Stockton and it hasn't cleared yet. Will resend another check as soon as I am able, you may wind up with two donations from me. Great job and I love your posts Matt.
I just noticed, I got my star. Now I will send the other check anyway. Thank you, this was my chrismas gift to myself.
