Here in Australia we had an approx. 91% voter turnout, 4-5% of them were informal voters and up to another 5% elected to pay the $50aud fine instead of turning up (there are exemptions involved with the last so it maybe lower by 1-2%).

Cheers.

I doubt if the project would implement a script to automatically award them, but there is no reason why individuals shouldn't use them in their sig if they want. Provided of course we didn't make the pages load slower. All the images are .jpg.

Now there's an idea for those who want to do their own, and as Chris said about not impacting page load times, and it won't effect us that ignore sigs totally because we reckon that there's enough clutter around here already without having to see them too. ;-)

Cheers.

I would say that she was forced on him by several other high ups in the Republican Party as a leash.

Yes, both have identical everything, BOINC (6.10.60), Lunatics (Beta 6 installer), app_ info.xml's, cmdlines, etc,...

In fact, other than the different Win7 versions and wallpapers, everything software is identical on both of them, hardware wise, other than their CPU's and motherboards they could be identical twins. ;-)

A mostly overcast day here today and I did go out and do 2hrs of dust free mowing, that's how long a full fuel tank and my legs last for, and the ground is water logged so it was slow going and I didn't get to finish it all, but we did reach our expected max of 27C while I was out there (that's now back to 25C). :-)

The first band of showers being generated by T.C. Debbie are now only 150kms away from here (or about 4-5hrs at the rate of current progress) and up to an inch of rain by 9am tomorrow (then up to another 2" by the next morning). :-(

Then there's the question of where and when that system pops back out to sea, it could either get a lot wetter here or it'll be over quickly, but no one really knows.

Lucky I live on top of a good hill 974 metres above sea level and I'm now ready for it all. ;-)

Cheers.

No problems here filling up once my rigs connect.

1 rig connected while I was mowing the lawn and I manually connected the other a half hour later when I ran out of fuel and that happily filled up in no time too, both are Win7 (1 Home Premium, the other Pro).

Cheers.

Yes, it's very annoying when you have to put up with all those childish, unintelligent and pointless posts all over the place. :-(

But there is a solution. :-D

There is no reason to shout here Dr Who Fan, but those are SETI badges and not BOINC badges.

I didn't see any speed increase. The benefit of r3584 is a decrease in invalids.

Invalids or inconclusives?
I'm running r3557, and it's been ages since I've had a GPU Invalid. With some of the previous SoG applications there used to almost always be one or 2 (or more) there in my task list.

Oops. Misspoke. Yes, inconclusives. I don't create invalids unless I am doing something stupid to the computer while it is crunching and crash it.

The only inconclusives I get now while running r3557 are created by others still using the older SoG apps or rigs that are just plain bad.

Cheers.

President Donald Trump pulled ‘Trumpcare’, or the American Healthcare Act (AHCA), late last week, before it could even be voted on.

Why? Because to do otherwise would have shown the overwhelming lack of support the President’s health care reform bill had. Losing this vote would have been a massive blow to the self-professed deal-maker — so canning it once he realised he didn’t have the numbers seemed like the logical move.

But, let’s be honest, pulling his reform bill has pretty much the same effect.

The bill is largely a smokescreen for House Speaker Paul Ryan’s hard-on for reforming Medicaid, a program that 70 million poor Americans depend on for their healthcare.

The rest was hastily put together, and thrown out to the vote at the tender age of two-and-a-half weeks. 123 pages in total (seven of which were dedicated to special rules and conditions ensuring lottery winners weren’t ever given access to free healthcare).

It also contained the foundation for billions in tax cuts for the ultra-rich, and handed back power to the insurance companies, who already make billions in profit each year...

So it all boils down to making the greedy rich richer and the poor poorer.

Cheers.

There's certainly no drought Grant and that cyclone up north is expected to drop more of that wet stuff on us here to push our rainfall for this month over a foot (it's enough to drive a person to drink). :-(

But we at least finally had a nice warm (27C) sunny day today for a change.

Cheers.

We're expecting 40-65mm (1.5-2.5") of rain out of that system from tomorrow evening until the end of this month.

That'll push us over 300mm (12") here for this month. :-O

Not really to do with safety, but quite a change actually in the management of the suburban railways of the UK.

SW Trains

A similar company wants to build a high speed rail link along our eastern seaboard here, but the airlines don't want that happening as they'd lose a great deal of dollars to a better, cheaper and more environmentally cleaner system. :-(

Sorry Wiggo, I completely disagree with you.

But you don't live here Chris where they're nothing but an introduced predator. ;-)

Nothing you or anyone else can say that will change my mind on these natural assassins.

[edit] And the sooner that they are exterminated from this continent the better.

Cheers.
