You might be spared running on empty, someone got up early and opened the gates.

No, that's the end of the "ten hours" that Matt mentioned ;),

The sheer demand for new work, and the timing of the hits for these requests will be the cause of the Servers labouring
It's good to be back amongst friends and colleagues

Another solution would be to rally the user base so that at a given UTC time we all chug 20oz of our individually favorite local brew together, as a team. That may lead to the only real manifestation of global warming, and concurrently may be the only true relief of our user/volunteer angst. I sugeest 1400UTC on Friday, April 11, but am open to alternative times and dates. (Obviously, I'm willing to risk the short term global water shortage when 20m later we all process our beer down the toilet. Life is not worth living unless you risk a bit.)


That is what I call an excelent idea! I agree 100% whith that! (In reference to the beer) ;-D

(Another thing: somebody could tell me how to put an avatar in my post?)

I prefer whiskey to beer......but as to the avatar thingy....
Let's discuss this in the Cafe instead of here.......OK?

Please post your question again there, and you will get the help you require...
Kitties make wonderful traveling companions on your journey through life.

Have made a few friends in this life.
Most were cats.

...but due to the extra I/O that will take about two weeks to complete...


Hell! And I thought the day long RAID rebuild I have scheduled for tomorrow (Saturday) was going to be a long one!

I did say usual signs (above in bold) - which means I've seen it before...

Another appropriate venue for that question would be the Preferences Q&A forum—which in itself may also serve as a hint.
