What is snow?
Well this is the courtyard where I work. It is totally surrounded by building.

And I have yet to see an IMAX presentation...
One of those things on my bucket list.

Not all IMAX screens are the same. Check out the size before you commit. The one in LA you sit so close to that your peripheral vision sees the image and you have to move your eyes around the screen in order to make in the full image. You need to be careful that you don't fall out of your chair because your eyes and ears don't always agree.
The one I saw in San Diego didn't have the same type of screen and was a disappointment.

Really? I thought that IMAX was a certain specification as to what the screen must be.
Since I had multiple eye surgeries several years ago and now sport plastic lenses in both eyes, my peripheral vision is not what it was naturally. I kinda see what is directly in front of me, and not off to the sides much. It does alter the way one reacts to sounds and other stimulai.


I do however, thank God that I can see what I can, and my seeing Avatar shortly after my eyes recovered was the most amazing experience in my last few years.

IMAX is the type of film and projector they use. Not all building are large enough to take full advantage of the process. In San Diego they use a planetarium which I am sure works fine for what it was originally designed for but as an IMAX screen the image wasn't as large and was somewhat distorted. Maybe somebody has worked out a lens to correct the problem but they didn't have it when I was there.
Even with tunnel vision you will find like in real life your eyes are wandering all over the image to take it all in. I did that with normal vision so I am sure you will still be impressed.

Thank you for sharing all of this with me, Dena. This has moved higher up on the bucket list....LOL.
Meow!


I have only seen one IMAX film and it was a documentary at the Grand Canyon.

I get free filing for both state and federal.

Download BOINC from the Play Store, connect to SETI, it will download the app to process work.

My badge isn't showing and I am not sure why but I suspect it's because my star is turned off.


I think it is another of the items that are not working correctly currently.

Installed Lunatics installer and ran it, then closed boinc, edited the app_info.xml file changing the relevant values to 0.33, saved and fired up Boinc again.


Did you shut down the manager or go to the advanced menu and select shut down the client?

OK, who stepped on the Cricket. Both my links show no activity but downloads are working. Anyone know how to find the router they're using?

You probably have the correct link....
The graphs would not load at all a while ago, and now that they have come back online, check the time stamp. I don't think they are updating the data yet.


Looks like they ran out of ink again.

Probably either missing the OpenCL drivers for the video or have an unsupported version for BOINC

I currently have a iLo 32" TV, one of my computers has a TV tuner card installed and that allows it to do DVR duty.

Sound output is through a optical connection to a Sony 7.1 receiver.

I guess I'm going with the underdogs today...

The Ravens and then the Panthers!


And they both lost.
