Yes, the meals number is lower than yesterday. I hope I just misread it last time, and the counter is not running backwards......

Just heard Ian Celttooth and Long-Sufferin' Marie are celebrating 24 years of marriage today.

Three Cheers, and a round for them and the House, on my tab.

I'm rather worried about what will happen when New Madrid decides to let go. It's overdue. And most of the buildings around here aren't hardened for it.

Someone I know, with a rather off-kilter sense of humour, recently noted that for all the devastation earthquakes cause, like hurricanes and tornados, they generate hundreds of shovel-ready urban renewal projects.

I was at Mare Island Naval Shipyard in Vallejo in 1989, and saw the results of the Loma Prieta quake up close and personal. Not something I'd wish on anyone.

15) Message boards : Number crunching : RAC flatlined... no clue why (Message 1564375)
Posted 3 days ago by Profile Donald L. JohnsonProject donor
The stat sites show you are getting credit. When you say flat lined are you looking at the graph in BOINC? Sometimes it doesn't update correctly. So you may just want to restart BOINC. If it is not updating after that there may be an issue with your statistics_setiathome.berkeley.edu.xml not getting updated.

Edit: You can see the credit granted on your machines by looking at their valid tasks. Your machine 7356542 for example.

Looking at that machine, Silverdude, you have a large percentage of "pending" tasks, most of which your wingman is a much slower machine than yours. You may just have hit a slow spot, and your RAC will come back up when those folks finish and report.

Posted 3 days ago by Profile Donald L. JohnsonProject donor
And Suzie-Q I have no problem with your request in the Critter Cafe to help fund the medical treatment of the kittens you have found. In fact, I can think of no better venue to post it than a place where Critter People gather. I see that you set the "default" request to $35, and so with that Eric and I were happy to start off your campaign yesterday. Wishing you the best of success!

And now we are 3. Tried to donate Saturday evening (would have been first), but got the spinning pinwheel and a "Done but errors on page" message when I hit "Submit". Tried again today, got same result on both XP/IE-8 boxes. So I go try on one of my Mac G4s running Safari - and it goes right through. Go figure.

I could say something elitist about Macs and Mac users, but
I won't. (No need, really.) ;-)

Move up the IE to be only one version behind current. Better yet, use a different browser.

Windows Update says IE8 is the most recent version for XP systems. My most recent acquisition, a Core2 Duo E6550, is going into the shop next week for inspection and possible upgrade to Windows 7. Until then, it's XP/IE8 or OSX 10.4.11/Safari v4.

Peeking in for a Poke.

@ Julie: Get well soon, I took My pills this morning including an antibiotics pill at 750mg, I've only had pneumonia once, but that was enough for Me, yuck!

It's my 6th pneumonia already *sigh* The doctor says I HAVE to quit smoking *sigh*

That would help a lot, I got My brother to quit smoking, He used the patch, larger one first, then go to smaller and smaller ones, to get you unhooked from nicotine. And not smoking anymore might save you some money too.

Easier said than done Vic, I've been smoking non-stop since I was 12...

You can try e-Cigs, Julie. Supposedly gives you the feeling that you are smoking; even though it's just vapor.

As I understand it, the deal with e-Cigs is you actually get the nicitine, but not the harmful smoke, not that nicotine is all that good for you. I smoked pipe and cigars for 15 years in the Navy, both for strees relief and the pleasure of it, so I know.

My mother had a predisposition to pneumonia, plus she smoked for over 55 years. COPD put her on Oxygen for the last 11 years of her life, and that was what finally got her to quit.

Sorry to hear Donald, your mother seemed very perseverant in her smoking habit, just like me... (Just smoked a cigarette)

As you said, quitting can be very difficult, especially when you start young. Mom started in her teens, and tried several times to quit before she finally succeeded, at age 69.

You said you tried an e-Cig and didn't like it. Was it straight nicotine, or have you tried the flavoured juices? Some of my friends rave about the fruit-flavoured ones.

Winning with clear lungs, but after 25 years, I still get the urge to light my pipe.

Thought you all would like to see a ship sailing on the mists of Avalon. Literally that is, as Avalon Beach is about 1km away the other side of the mist and Avalon Airport a couple of k's further around the bay.


Okay, now that's TWO Avalons I want to visit - one on Catalina Island, and one in Australia.
