I would NOT want to be the electrician charged with changing lamps in the atrium chandelier - unless it's on a cable that lowers it to ground level....

Thank you all for the Birthday wishes, and for joining the party here.

Yes, there have been a couple times that there was some question of my reaching this milestone, but I made it...

That Fuller's Vintage looks interesting, will have to see if I can get it over here.

@ Annie - you're not late yet, it's still 30 minutes until the 11th in my time zone.

Winning at the end of a very productive day.
Got a lot of little tasks done around the house,
got my call-back to work - Tuesday 0700,
and had a pleasant birthday dinner with my sister.
Winning.

If the blanked tasks take less time than using v6 (as they will), then you would expect less credit per task, but more tasks per day, resulting in the same RAC.

If the credit system worked as documented, that is. ;)

Should it matter at all? Blanked tasks were always excluded from "completed" tasks... So, should not influence credit granting, not ?

My understanding was that they were excluded from the "estimated time" calculations, but that they were included in the credit normalization.

As somebody said in the one of the AP v7 threads, he saw some very low credit grants at Beta, but after enough tasks had validated, the norm came up. It's still early in the process here on mainside, we'll have to wait and see how it goes......

Our SubVets group had a trip to USS Pampanito at San Francisco's Pier 45 scheduled for Saturday 11 October, but we had to postpone it until April due to our Chief Organizer recovering from open-heart surgery. So no chance for a meet-up with our Bay Area friends this weekend. Darn.

I don't think any NEW v6 will be split but there are plenty of old v6 out in the field. I've been getting a couple every day when the deadlines to report expire. So there will be stragglers for sometime until they are all done. I've been slowly getting some v7 also but I have to get threw these MBs first.


Happy Crunching....

Zalster

As I recall, when we made the change-over from MB Enhanced/v6 to v7 and AP v5 to v6, it took about 6 months to get most of the stragglers cleaned up - but there are STILL some MB Enhanced/v6 Work Units in validation limbo. One of these days, Eric & Co will get around to clearing them out.....

But as always around here, patience is not just a virtue, it is a requirement.....

Gotta start early, I'll be chubbaly warm while everyone else is shivering when the temperature suddenly drops :)

Wished I had a fireplace:( Good to know there's one at Rocky's tho:)

Winning

Winning on a warm Thursday afternoon.

Haven't used my fireplace in almost 20 years, due to my mother's health issues. Been so long, I need to get it cleaned and inspected before I try to light it again. Maybe next winter.....

Yes, it's good we have one in Rocky's.....

Freddy Krueger is attempting to steal our points!

Oh, THAT AP mystery.

No, the BEMs and the Greys have teamed up to bollix the AP validators so we won't find out they are using modulated pulsars to comunicate across interstellar distances. But they are too late, we've known for months, but the messages are encrypted, and we haven't broked the code yet, so they haven't made a public announcement. I thought everybody here knew that.

Since there is no Dinner thread, I'll put it here, I had Pizza for dinner, a frozen rising crust Supreme pizza, yum, it came from Stater Bros Market, not bad for $3.99 total.


Pizza is a universal meal - dinner, lunch, breakfast, snack, etc. That being said, I want to find a low-sodium frozen pizza. My mom doesn't like salty food, and pizza is a bad offender.

When I was on the missile boat out of Charleston SC, my Shipmate Eddie Vinsko used to put chunky peanut butter on cold pizza for breakfast. Tried it once, didn't care for it. De Gustibus, as Dr. Asimov used to say.......
