Read about Nebula, a new and faster back end for SETI@home. Nebula removes RFI and finds persistent signals. Its goal is to let us finish the current SETI@home experiment.

but the fact remains they took their land


Just asking a question.......did the Standing Rock Tribe ever accept monetary compensation for the easement across the land?

Reuters says the pipeline would be built outside, but near, the land owned by the tribe. The tribe is arguing that the pipeline would affect its water, as well as sites of spiritual significance, and says the government took the land away by reneging on past treaties.

J mercer, interesting read but the fact remains they took their land. You can use all the officious arguments you want but many people are fed up, witness the recent presidential election.

or is it a case of a level playing field - AS long as it favours the USA?

I thought we all agreed to this, or do you like speaking German and Japanese?


Ask that of those at Standing Rock.

They are "not taxed"

Why tax them when you can take their land?

The IBEW

Ranks right up there with the longshoremen, IBU, and the aerospace mechanics and engineers in this part of the world. Boing would very much get away from their unions but their first major attempt with the 787 really screwed the pooch. Due to F ups with the outsourcing they have yet to make a profit on a dreamliner.

then tanks can roll down the streets in Olympia

Joint Base Lewis–McChord Is only 30 miles from Olympia.

Here is a thought of mine. A white background is better because the pupil contracts with light and hence focuses more sharply. How can one argue against greater visual acuity?

Question of The Day:

Since the Obama Administration has stated there is no reason to believe there was any 'Hacking".

What is the real reason for The Recount?

If there was no hacking what is the harm? If the results are validated Trump still wins. If hacking did occur and is verified the republic wins.

There are three, combined with the other two, your experiences.

I consider experience to be part of education.

It seems someone is reading the comments, the SSP recently got much improved colors, but I am still very undecided on all the black everywhere.

Posted 9 days ago by Profile betregerProject Donor
Server status page works here, but reading it, is a totally different story.
This is amongst the worst webpage settings, I've ever seen.
Grey and black background, and white/light grey text on the grey background for messages.
Someone needs to check the meaning of the word "readability".
That, and understanding that there are older people here than people between 20 and 30.

Spend time communicating about the project, instead of spending hours and hours to screw up a perfectly working webpage.
From this point on, there's no idea to say "we don't have time", when someone wonders why the staff can't post a short message when something goes wrong.

The Server Status page works here, but trying to read it is another story.

Cheers.

When I use the home page all I get is:
The setiathome.berkeley.edu page isn’t working

When I use a bookmark in my browser I get the SSP and it is pretty much unreadable, very bad color combos.

Very dark and ominous plus the Server Status is absolutely horrid on the eyes let alone trying to read it. :-(

Cheers.

Wiggo the SSP gives me this:
The setiathome.berkeley.edu page isn’t working
