SATURDAY marks 100 days in office for President Trump. But the symbolic date could be a disaster if Congress doesn’t pass a bill to continue funding the Government by Friday.

Critical negotiations to secure the budget have been ongoing, with President Trump wanting to attach money to build the Mexican border wall to the bill.

But despite the fact a Republican is in the White House, and the party holds a majority in both the House and the Senate, it looked likely that there weren’t enough people willing to pass the budget with money for the wall attached to it.

If the budget isn’t passed, funding for most Federal government agencies is immediately stopped — meaning everything from Defence to National Parks could be severely affected.

This morning, Republicans relented, and have drawn up a budget deal that doesn’t include money for the wall.

However, both sides have a way to go to ensure the funding is secured by Friday; with parties divided over whether they should continue to provide subsidies for Obamacare.


Get ready for another temper tantrum. ;-)

Cheers.

Today started off at 13C here on a very wet day, briefly hitting 14C at 10:30am before dropping back to 13C soon after, and we're now waiting for a southerly change to hit which should cool us off further while giving us our 1st frost for the year in the morning, and it should be a good 1 with all the water on the ground.

Cheers.

I just finished cleaning up here after yesterday's A.N.Z.A.C. Day celebrations and because it's so wet outside today I might as well get wet on the inside again. ;-)

Still no sign of any BLC tasks in any download.

Keith, you getting some GBT work now?
I haven't been getting a lot, but every so often i'll get a group of them at a time, then just a bunch of Arecibo work with the odd GBT WU mixed in now & then, and then another group of GBT WUs.

Well I have plenty of them on all 3 rigs here so I guess that I'm the unlucky 1.

Cheers.

Does anybody listen differently when in your car? I don't tend to listen to anything except the actual car, when I'm in the car, but occasionally I like to turn on the radio for the news or some classical music.

I listen to a local popular music radio station at Tenterfield while driving around here, but I also have other popular music stations programed in for trips down to Sydney and I just hit the search button for trips elsewhere. ;-)

Cheers.

I havn't done any Einstein work here for quite some time now, but I was running them 2 at a time as well (though I believe that they have new apps there since the last time I did any).

OTOH my x4 630 with the 2 GTX660's in it has a RAC of 17.8K here after 18 days of running.

Cheers.

1 task at a time which gives me an average 96% GPU load, but that also depends on the type of w/u being processed at the time (some are higher while some a bit lower, but not by all that much). ;-)

Personally I like to see instant results from my hardware purchases.

My 3570K rig with dual 1060's is pulling 245W from the wall while my 2500K rig with dual 1060's pulls 270W and my Athlon II X4 wintertime rig with dual 660's pulls 295W for a grand total of 810W (250W down from last winter and the GPU's I was using back then) and I can't complain about the RAC I'm currently producing (a long way up from last winter).

Cheers.

Ah Dr Jekyll, oh illustrious professor, what is the difference between "Supressing" & "Oppressing"?

Now you must remember that Clyde's family was 1 of those groups of Yanks that were ripping off those poor Cubans before those Cubans woke up and rebelled against being ripped off by them.

Isn't that right Clyde?

Yep, the water around here is now too cold for mozzies to breed in Grant.

Anyhow, seeing as tomorrow is A.N.Z.A.C. Day, I've declared that today is a holiday as well and Beer O'clock maybe early.

Cheers.

US President Donald Trump has a mental illness and is not fit to continue as president.
That considers a group of psychiatrists who call Trump "paranoid and confused".

II wonder why it took them that long to come to that conclusion?

I worked that out a year ago. ;-)

Post:

their Government is still somewhat centrally planned

Now what is wrong with that M.K.?

Over here a lot of us want to get rid of state governments as they're a level of government (and red-tape) that we as a country can't afford for much longer.

But then again we also have many levels of fail safes against corruption in government where as your type of government just encourages it.

MK, havn't we made enough holes in Mother Earth taking it out for it to go back into until we need it for something else?

<soapbox time>Also if you're going to talk metric then it's called a "tonne" ("tonnes" for plural) when you're talking in kilograms as well, that's a sign of laziness (and I thought you were a good salesman there for a bit, but you ruined that just then), as it separates it from a long from a short ton (or gallons even), but we know where true greed comes from on the later measures (don't we?).

It really is about time that the U.S. and the U.K. drop those ridiculous and out of date measures so that yous can get up with the rest (greater majority) of the world. ;-)
</soapbox time>

Cheers.
