Tuesday means weekly outage day. Nothing really interesting or scary today. The only sysadmin thing I did during the quiet time was moving mail service off one machine (which we plan to retire soon) onto another. Still have a couple steps to go on that front.

I should mention that we upgraded our network connection from our auxiliary lab to the server closet from 100Mbit to 1Gbit. In practice this meant simply replacing an old cheap switch which a new cheap one. This was mostly for the benefit of Eric and his new compute server, but on the side helps vader (which handles half the downloads and all the assimilators) and our other compute servers maul and marvin (all of which still sit in the other lab, awaiting room in the closet).

Finally stopped being sidetracked enough to work on radar blanking again today. I'm finding some data is very clean and would like to not enforce blanking if it seems unnecessary. E-mails were sent to the experts for advice.

Matt is might not be relevant to anything that has happened today, however on the most recent download of tasks, I received a strange message:

Is this something to pay attention too, or just a harmless glitch?

Is this why I am not getting any new projects from seti@home? I have updated a couple of times but the message came back as no new tasks.

Getting plenty. Look at your log. Perhaps your preferences or app.xml are set to not allow the new applications.

Nope I always receive tasks unless the latest update changed it somehow that I don't know about. I just downloaded the 6.4.7 version 3/10/09.
