Additionally on one from the staff has even taken time to post and tell us what is happening. No one has even tried to take five minutes to let us know.

I totally agree! Is Matt the only one who knows writing?

Eric and Jeff will write something once in a while, but Matt is the most prolific and he's in Europe for at least 3 more weeks.

Keep in mind that these guys are just human beings. They spend all day trying to find and fix a problem, in addition to whatever scientific (i.e. not trouble shooting) work they're trying to accomplish, and then they want to go home like anyone else. I understand and share your frustration with the lack of information, but I also understand Eric preferring to go home to his wife over writing explanations for us. He just wants to quit thinking about it for a while.

They are humans and we all understad it, they all diserve spend their private time as the wish/could.

The thing i don´t understand is, if Matt are in Europe for a almost a month, then why turn the AP-Splitters on? since everyone knows each time they are on the system craches? The actual configuration can´t handle all the work at the same time, thats crystal clear to all.

This is like trowing gasonile to a hot surface, and the blame about the fire!

Remember the Murphys Law.

Even if things are up, they can be saturated.

Message 1322518 - Posted: 31 Dec 2012, 5:08:15 UTC - in response to Message 1300639.

I waited three months before posting this :)

The "Tech News" page at this location:

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/tech_news.php

... is linked from the home page and provides a view of the occasional reports from Matt et al, the same posts that lead off these threads.

Since at least July, that page has been slightly corrupted. It's like it's missing a header or something, as it is showing some sort of raw database dump.



Another month has gone by, still broken. Nobody cares about this?


Aaaaaand after 5 months it's finally fixed! Thanks to whomever quietly took care of it!
