You know dear, what really gets me in the mood is a high RAC.

This is farfetched but will work with the right person. Some trusted person could lend Angela their cruncher till she is up and running properly again. Key word is “trusted” with the sharing of IDs & pass.

No need to go to heroics. Eric has promised to carve out some time this weekend to make things right.

Should it disturb me that all these men are talking about my wife's RAC?

You should be pleased/proud that you've obviously made such a good choice ;-)

No, it should disturb you that your wife is talking about her RAC with all these men.

If the point was to get Dr. Eric's attention, I think Ang succeeded.

Eric knows he's the only one with the power to take our focus of Ang's RAC. :-)

Only if she is flaunting, er, prominently displaying it.

Well since your new toy has not connected.. any chance to fire up that old core2
that was last in contact? Set to a 0 share it should just d/l a unit or two and that should crunch out quickly...

Not really, Eric.

We're nerds, geeks, and computer hobbyists, so we can't help but notice TFLOPS.

Hey is our Ang on a promise this weekend? ;-))

Never find the TFLOPS, with toe nibbling raccoons about its the flipflops you need to worry about!

(Eric, with a bit of attention, I'm sure your wife's RAC will respond accordingly)

LOL! Quote of the day!




So Ang is still hovering at 4. It took her about 1 week to go from 8 to 4, so I hope her computer gets crunching soon. :-)

Merciful heavens!!!


As luck would have it, this is an unholy busy weekend for 'Ol Pookers. There is a NASA site review coming up for a project he is a part of (not a seti thing) so there are many, many, many things he has to prep today and tomorrow. Then he also has a remote Arecibo observing run tonight around midnight, which means he will be in the lab until after 2am. Then poor Eric has another remote observing round on Saturday around noon. I do not believe he is planning to go to the lab on Sunday, but there is that small matter of a Super Bowl, so all in all it is not looking promising.

The Stupid Bowl is in the evening (okay, late afternoon PST), and anyway, can't he work on the computer and watch at the same time?

Oh, but of course, you live near one of the teams in it.
