Here is the site Donald :)

Thanks, that's the one.
San Juan Bautista is near Monterey, in the central Coast Range, too far away for me to feel over on the east side of the Central Valley.

Winning between the late news and bedtime.

Added a new (for me) cruncher, a used Core2Duo E4600 running Windows Vista. One of my older WinXP boxes (Phred) died, got a new one at the County Surplus Store a couple weeks ago, just now getting it set up. Attached to S@H, but no tasks yet.

Eric's post mentioned it has taken 5 days to get to 25% & that was about 6 day ago. So if it still going it should be somewhere around 50% complete. In theory that would put the completion time around the 28/29th. Being a holiday weekend for the US maybe after maintenance on the 2nd AP shall return.

Keep in mind those figures were before the Database became non responsive & the whole show went down for a while.
It's possible the rebuild had to be restarted from scratch.

Eric has posted an Update in Tech News - looks like the AP rebuild failed and will have to be redone.....

Just got 14 MBs for my Core2Duo - all seem to be mid-range/normal tasks. My other WinXP box has a couple tasks, and my iBook has 1, but I just added a Core2 Duo running Vista, and it has no tasks yet,,,,

Winning after work. We worked both shifts on Saturday AND Sunday - first time we've worked a shift on Sunday in the 19 years I've worked cotton. Will definitely have next Sunday off - we aren;t allowed to work more than 13 days straight.

Been a bit busy and not paying as much attention to this forum as I would have liked.

Praying for all of you who are caring for loved ones, that God grant you the strength, courage, patience, and wisdom to do what is best for all of you, including making hard choices when necessary.

When I was helping my parents take care of each other, there were many difficult days, including a few bouts of dementia as the cancer took Mom. It helped to have both my sisters to spell me, and remembering that God has promised us that He will never give us more burdens than we can handle. Still, there were days I wished He didn't have so much faith in me (insert laugh track here).......

A couple of my Shipmates, and one VFW Comrade's wife, are in various stages of Alzheimer's. Some are still at home, with an aide to help out, others are in care facilities because their condition was such that the spouse simply could no longer care for them at home, even with help. They get daily visits, but it can be rough on the family members to visit and not be recognized. I would not wish Alzheimer's on my worst enemy.

Annie, I hope your family conference went well, and you are able to keep your Mother at home for awhile. Fight hard to give her the best life you can, but be aware that the time may come....

For Ian and Marie, I pray for a speedy recovery and return to something resembling normal living.....

Results out in the field: 836
Results received in last hour: 8
Result turnaround time (last hour average): 633.83 hours

In 24 hours 68 tasks were received. At this rate it will take over 12 days to receive all of them... in perfect world ;)

Being a realist, and a somewhat optimistic one at that, I'm still shooting for my birthday.

Tell us again, when is your birthday, David?

Overcast/foggy day, probably just as well I was inside at work.
Saturday is now certain, as is the following Saturday.
My bank account will be winning, not sure I will be....

Not that many intersections have cameras, and I don't know of any that are steerable. Mostly just for red light enforcement. Chicago has some for speed, with much attendant controversy. Ostensibly, they're to keep kids safe near schools and parks, but everyone knows they're really just revenue generators. They're very good at that.

In California the Red Light and Speed cameras were declared unconstitutional and ordered turned off.

State or US Constitution?

IIRC Federal, but it was decided at the bottom rung of state court. I think the city didn't want to waste $$ on an appeal. The lawyers would cost more than the revenue from the tickets. If I remember the gist, it was because the camera system was rented and the company was the one issuing the citations, not sworn police officers.

In response to which, some cities station sworn Traffic Officers at the monitoring station to issue the citations. They view the video, then sign the tickets. If enough money is involved, they find a way to make it work.....
