I think I'm going to assume that the fact that you've got nothing better to do than argue semantic points from a post eight messages, two days and a maintenance outage ago is a good thing.

It means that the project has (very quietly) started running so smoothly that you've all got nothing better to panic about :P

Quite correct I haven't been panicking for ages

Please, no panic!
Panic is when people start loosing connection to reality - but we are living in reality.

If "he" doesn't care (or "they"don't care), there are still two possibilities: Either he doesn't want to take care (his own decision) or he does not have the time to take care (somebody else decided).
As an example take Matt's blog: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=59157
Although it's nearly 3 years old, some parts could still be valid!

I prefer the last Q-A-block:

Q: What do you mean "you hit the limit?" Are you mad at us?
A: No. No. No. Nothing personal, but I'd really like other project staff to chime in more often, and maybe I need to step away in order for that to happen. Plus being in the spotlight I sometimes find myself having to argue on behalf of policies or practices around here which I don't know much about, or I don't exactly agree with. Meh. I do wish SETI@home had better avenues and resources for public relations. In any case I'll still keep working towards improving that in the future whenever I can, whether or not that's direct contact from me or otherwise. The daily notes were fun, but honestly probably not the best use of my time. I may just report about bigger projects as they happen. We'll see.

So I'll be around - just a lot quieter.

I've been receiving Short CPU tasks that insist they run Immediately. Plus, all my recently downloaded CUDA 23 tasks are...Shorties. I see an approaching Shortie Storm.

Batten down the hatches, no need to panic, it's just a little Short thing. Unless...

Matt has posted an update and I believe that all serious Setizens should read:

Something's gone away....
Everything was still going fine about 5 hours ago when I went to bed. This morning I have a bunch of rigs that have dropped back to Einstein because they can't connect to the server to report and get new work.

Whazzup?

Looking over my logs for the night I see spurts of "Scheduler request failed: HTTP gateway timeout", but I often see that the bandwidth is maxed constantly pegged.

Not quietly enough :-)

LANDO is not running also errors on MB Channels

someone said we started getting a storm of shorties that with AP's is what usually throws us over the Network Performance Knee

I just did an update on a baby host that only does about 1 CPU task a day. Report one, request zero, only three tasks listed as 'other results'. It still took 71 seconds to turn it round (successfully) - that's mighty slow.

My logs started showing reporting problems starting around 5am EST. Uploads fine just scheduler reports.

Edit: And always as soon as I post here a request goes through...

Cricket bits out still spiraling ever so slowly downwards. Hope someone can fix it all before the weekend curtain.

Still borked- inbound network traffic has dropped off considerably. Looks like problems started around 12 hours ago, but it became really bad about 2-3 hours ago.
"Scheduler request failed: Couldn't connect to server" is about the only response i'm getting. Occasionally i get some work, but not often enough to keep what little cache i've got. It's not so slowly dwindling.
