Just a reminder, when you panic while the outage is on tomorrow you are welcome at https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=8105.

I've got washing down 2 more rooms booked for tomorrow, but you never know.

Cheers.

Just taking my last short break before filling and capping, if it wasn't for those unexpected visitors this morning I'd be near finished by now.

No I don't Gordon as I can't see the point of wasting $'s on something that has to be replaced everytime after the sterilization process (or the mess they leave behind after the process because they can't handle the heat), but every dozen bottles goes into a coloured stackable plastic crate (colour depends on the product inside) on which a sticker is attached so I can write the date the produce was bottled on onto.

My beer also goes into a different shaped beer bottle to what my ginger beer goes into so that there's no confusion in the fridge either (I use to do the same with dark ale, but no one drinks it around here). ;-)

Anyhow, I better finish this break and get back in there and finish it off before someone else interrupts me.

Cheers.

Most of my visitors throw in 1 way or another Grant. ;-)

I'm on a catch up ATM Grant and I'll still have 20 dozen empty bottles to fill up yet, but at least there'll 18 dozen in stock today (6doz will be ready for the fridge in 2 days).

Well the brewroom should've cooled down a bit by now so my short break is over, time to rinse and prime those 6 dozen bottles before my next short break.

Cheers.

BTW, the installer only comes with the 8.20 app, but it's good enough for me. ;-)

C.W.'s can do that to you, one thing is lose of sleep.

Wish I had that problem. LOL

Not to mention losing the next day as well, but I'm getting too old for these long extended days for sure and crazy women.

Wiggo I might have asked you this before but whats the AVG % of your beer?

And you Rum?

The beer is 6.1%, ginger beer is 5% and all my spirits are produced from a 40% ethyl alcohol base. I water the base down (and it must be watered down to some extent) to that percentage Grant, but it can be adjusted up or down depending on how much water you add.

Well the heat is now on in the brewroom so I'll be getting very busy (and sweaty) as soon as this 12L of water boils.

Cheers.

G'morning everyone, from a lovely sunny summer's day in the highlands.

Well I'm on my last coffee break for the morning before I get into my brewroom and bottle 6 dozen longnecks (750ml bottles) of lager, I'm just not looking forward to the boiling water first part of the process (I'll be sweating bucket loads).

Anyhow, Beer O'clock today will commence when the brewroom been finished with and put back to its usual way. I just hope that I don't get many more interruptions along the way (why to visitors always turn up when a person is busy with important things to do?)

Cheers.

G'morning all.

I like to keep busy Grant, but I must say that yesterday turned out to be a very long day. We got my mate's yard cleaned up by mid afternoon, went to the pub for a few beers and then had a roast beef dinner before going home to feed dog and then C.W.#1 turned up so it ended up being a very late night.

Boy, now I do need some sleep.

Cheers.

Some Visa Debit cards are country or region specific, some you have to request extended coverage, and some work anywhere in the world - its all down the the account and provider.
......

Exactly and mine is a fee free job by a small regional bank so you can't expect everything. ;-)

Hate to interrupt the egg discussion, but...

I'm not really sure why everybody's obsessed with raccoons here at SETI! I mean, raccoons are cool and all, but why raccoons specifically? Is it the 'mask'? The cunning personality?
Do raccoons maintain everything over at Berkeley? :)

Somebody fill me in!!

Angela is "Queen of the Raccoons". ;-)

Cheers.

It's a good thing we have a head start here in Sydney, if I get to the bank early I might still squeak in under the rope.

If you have one the donation page does accept Australian Visa cards. It says it will also take Amex and MasterCard but I have no first hand knowledge with either of them. Another alternative if you have a PayPal account is to donate through the GPUUG web site. Exchange rate isn’t in our favour unfortunately.

You know you want one of the spinning hard drive or GPU icons next to your name...


Mastercard works fine here.

Mine's a VISA debit card, but sadly it doesn't work on O.S. transactions. :-(

But ATM I've got a bigger problem to attend to before the end of the year. :-((

I do give my deep down appreciation though to those who could step up to the plate. ;-)

Cheers.

I still reckon that SETI still needs gets smarter in the way it uses peoples' PC's resources, especially when a GPU (or 2) is present (each GPU task needs to be given a full core support and not some stupid impractical and unrealistic fraction of a core), because the way it runs as stock ATM just over commits a persons PC's resources and until that is address we'll just wind up with more hit and run jobs, just checking the rig numbers will show how many new users (higher numbers are the most often involved) just give up because they can't use there PC's with the current stock setup. It's these hit and runs that have been my biggest timeout problem over the last few years now, but more so under MB8 and the SoG app (but even the old CUDA apps have a bigger impact now under MB V8 as I found out last winter here).

IMHO if we can stop these hit and runs by better use of their PC resources (instead of crippling them) it would likely ease the database load a lot more than shortening deadlines.

Cheers.

G'day everyone, from a warm but windy day in the highlands.

Sounds like you're really enjoying that new toy of yours Steve. :-)

Well I'm about to go and help a mate move a few wrecks around his yard, but I will be taking a few track rations with me. They look I'm drinking red Powerade, but they have a special added kick to them. ;-)

Cheers.
