Eric and I ended up spending a huge chunk of last Sunday at the Emergency Vet with my distraught sister and our scapy little four-legged nephew "Puddy". Puddy is expected to make a full recovery.

I send my best wishes to your sis & Puddy:-)

(Normally he shows up to work dressed like he is there to paint the building.)

That is a classic Angism! luv it :-))

I see Angela's RAC is down to 1.99. I also see she hasn't posted in several days. Perhaps the answer to her question in the thread title is 2.

I'll send her a PM.

But her husband really needs to do something about her RAC.

Uhh, not that I don't wish his company, and Eric has given me the grace of response to my emails when necessary, but........
I do wish Eric the best in his 'official' duties as scientist.

Sometimes I, and others, I am sure, forget that he is NOT a sysadmin of the Seti servers, and I have had the shame of treating him like that on occasion.

Sorry, Eric. I do know you have better things to do than to babysit freakkin' computers. Not your wont or your destiny. I have imposed at times, only because I was concerned about your project.

And in your off hours, you have even given me the time of day to converse about la la la la la thingys.

Eric, I luv ya, and your wonderful significant other, Angela.

I always shall.

Very well said Mark.

But maybe you forgot no 1 rule for a husband.
Make your wife happy to remain happy your self. LOL

I wasn't suggesting that he fiddle with the project servers to fix her RAC, but that he fix her computer.

When he has time, of course. His big NASA thing was yesterday, I believe.

Nope. I am still able to post. I just was at work until very, very late last night and today I was in the south bay all day at a conference.

Mike, that is excellent marital advice!!!




Here is a picture I took yesterday of Eric on his way to work in a suit. The last time he had worn a suit to work was about four years ago. And yes, one cannot help but notice that Eric forgot to put on a belt!!! Fortunately he remembered to put one on before he left the house. The NASA review panel members would most certainly have remembered the Berkeley presentation if Eric's pants had fallen off.

Also in this picture you will note that our cat Eva does not seem to recognize Eric in a suit. She needs to smell Eric's hand in order to verify his identity!

Thank you to everyone who has offered solutions to my RAC problem. Two people have offered me remote access to unused computers and one person offered to fix my computer remotely! Wow!!! This sure is a nice community!!! I'm about 90% sure that Eric is planning to fix my computer tomorrow. We'll see...

He looks tired. Hope he didn't kiss the cat
then pet the wife on the way out the door to work.

That's why God's minions made suspenders. And hey, when Larry King can wear them.... ;-)

In British English...

Since neither Angela nor Eric is British, I don't think I have to talk about braces. They might think I talk about something to correct teeth.

But then, aluminium - aluminum, ey? ;-)

Oh my giddy aunt, Eric in a shirt & tie and a suit, AND minus beard!! Definitely one for the archives. Oh, and BTW, one does not wear a belt with suit trousers. They should be self supporting if the waist measurement is correct, and they have a crepe anti slip band on the inside.

Mind you if you go to Saville Row, they will cut your suit assuming you will be wearing gents braces, as that is the only way a quality suit will ever hang properly.

Oh dear. Please don't take that personally!!!

The pm system still works when your RAC is nothing, right? If anybody ever needs help getting back in, I would recommend that he or she pm a friend here who might be able to connect you with a cruncher willing to provide some tech support. I got all sorts of kind offers of tech support from people in this community. Crunchers are good people.

Sure you could. There are the Question and Answers forums where you can post without RAC. It's where Angela is going to next... ;-)

Well, I don't see why you need a RAC >1 if you already had points before.

If points and RAC < 1 then "need higher RAC"
If points or RAC >1 "post!"

Wouldn't that be a better condition to check for? :)
