Don't tempt 'em Mark - especially if they've been in communication with Monday's Antipodean cohort of helpers, they can be really mischievous....

Makes me think of the "Seven Ages of Man" speech from Shakespeare's "As You Like It"...

I'm not sure I do like it!

The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side,
His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide

Ok Ok I cant get into my dinner suit any more, last time I wore it was 3 years ago ... BUT I do not have a bum bag!!! Specs and slippers, er, yes ....



If it's a comfort, I can't get into my wedding dress either anymore:)

I can't get into my Dress Blues anymore - the Jumper fits, but the Pants are too big.

Weird story... I also already thought of attaching every computer at work to BOINC, but I would probably get caught :(

That's the infamous NEZ...
He still holds the top total credits at Seti.
mikeej42 has about 10 million to go to overtake his record.

I am number 6 on the all time creds list.



I've been wondering about that. You sure you only use your own computers, Mark? ;)

All here, all in my own home, at my own cost.
I ran Seti on my work computer, with my boss's knowledge and consent, for a few months when I first signed on back in 2000. That was before I built my first computer at home. Seti is why I built that first 233mmx rig.

Since then, it's all been done right here in the kitty crunching den.



That's really admirable, Mark. I miss my 8 rigs...

I recall Mark once posted a picture of his Kitties - quite impressive, especially "Ice Cold" (or was it "Frozen"?) the freon cooled beast.

My Penny (air cooled) is still u=running, original CPU. It's the GPU that helps on other projects ...
It's good to be back amongst friends and colleagues

Place seems very empty the last few days. No Cafe visitors for some grub and a drink?
