Winning after a looong day setting up and selling fireworks.
Enjoying a thunder & lightning storm like I haven't seen in years.
Got a few sprinkles but no real rain here. Fresno & Tulare got some hard but short showers. Air tastes much better now - not so much dust and smoke.
Winning.

Trying to get to bed early - up at 0600 so I can open my Legion Post's fireworks sales booth at 0800.

But only the Replica database shows as offline, all the important functions are working.

And I was able to clear about 20 stalled uploads, report, and got 25 new Tasks (across 2 machines) about 20 minutes ago.

Late-night hot-and-humid win!(?)
High temp 97F but 40% humidity again.
Talking about 105F with the same humidity tomorrow.
Not fun.

Looking at the list on Exeter; Exeter now has one AP WU. :-)

There's a whole lot of MBs on both systems; but only one AP on each... Wish I'd get more APs.

Out of 4 AP-capable Wintel boxes, my i5 got 1 - just 1. First one since probably November. I'll take it.

Light breeze keeping it tolerable.

Judicious

Wise, sensible, prudent, politic, shrewd, astute, canny, sagacious,

Obviously the word comes from judgemental as in a good judgement. Now this has made me think of that washing up liquid advert

"Hands that judicious
Can be soft as your face,
With mild green fairy liquid!"

I'll close the door on my way out ....

Last time I had green fairy liquid on my hands, it took 4 days for the colour to fade.....

Posted 5 days ago by Profile Donald L. JohnsonProject donor
For those interested I just got home from our Relay for Life event. It ran Noon-Midnight this year. I was there @ 10:30 to help setup and I stayed for the entire event for the first time. I am completely exhausted, both physically and emotionally. As a whole, the event raised $42,000+ this year. Our Team came in as #1 with over $10,000.

Thank you all for the support!

Wow! Almost 25% of the total raised. Good job. mate!

Winning at 0200 local.
Fell asleep reading out under the mulberry trees, woke up about 0130 when the kitties decided to play tag with my toes. Trying to decide whether to go to bed or back out to the lounge chair ......

Curious thing, I don't like Liver and Onions or Liver most any way prepared. But I really like Liverwurst and Braunschweiger in a sandwich......

Yeah, I'm the same way. My parents loved liver & Onions with bacon over the top, but I can't stand it. But liverwurst and bacon and cheese and peanut butter on toasted bread - right up there with a grilled SPAM sandwich, yessir..

I just have one word to say......'Liverwurst'. (Square Braunschweiger). ";D)

Farmer John sells both Braunschweiger and Liver Sausage out here. The Braunschweiger tends to be darker, and I prefer its flavor. But both come in square-ish cylinders. There is another brand that comes in 2-inch diameter chubb with a thick yellow-orange casing that I really like but can't always find.

In the wintertime, I order from the Usinger's sausage factory in Milwaukee.
20) Message boards : Number crunching : Valid task not removed (Message 1696167)
Posted 6 days ago by Profile Donald L. JohnsonProject donor
Thanks, Donald!

So for my initial wingmate the task was validated, even though he missed the deadline by a long time?

Yes, that's how it works. Even though he missed deadline, he was the next to finish after you - first two successful completions trigger the Validators. If you look at the Tasks - click for Details column, and click on your or his Task Number, you will see that the original deadline was 30 May. He missed it, the server declared the Task Timed-Out, and resent it to the 3rd host. The 3rd host appears to be what some of us call a drive-by, who joined the project, got a few Tasks, them never came back. That host last contacted the server on 30 May, probably when it got the resend. His deadline is 13 July, so if he doesn't come back before then, it will time out. I had one just like that a couple weeks ago - once the _2 task timed out, it was not resent, and dropped off my list 24 hours later.
