Well Charles' peak RAC got to just above 12,500,000, but it's been dropping off just lately too.

It looks like some of his Linux machines started dropping off from S@h about a week ago, like 7334442. Others more recently, such as 7334399. Each of the ones I looked at were still left with exactly 100 tasks "in progress", so it appears that he's stopping cold turkey and those tasks will just hang around until they time out. That's what's happening with 7309756 which last made contact on July 6 with 100 tasks "in progress". It looks like 52 of those have already timed out (shorties, I guess), but the other 48 aren't due until late August. Assuming he's got over 1,000 hosts running, that'll be over 100,000 WUs left in limbo for a while. Oh, well, I guess such a huge contribution to the project will be worth the extra overhead!

You would think that he would set NNT and let the work run dry. But then maybe he has no chioce when the Man Or woman, Says ok thats enough stress testing back to work. I would expect more such stess testing and cut off in the future.
And while it dose tend to PO wingman that is how Boinc was set up. For just such cases.

No rain here today. Its very hot. I made some iced coffee to drink in the garden and took a picture of my "vegetable patch". If anyone can tell me what I have growing there I'd be curious. I'm really a city girl and I do not have a clue. This is the first garden I've ever had.


Hard to tell from the picture, but is it possible that the dried seed heads are wild fennel?

I tried to blow up the pic but it is to blurry. But My guess for the tall ones would be dill. As for the othet plants I have no clue.

When reposting an attribution: Please don't post a partial section, because other parts clarify, and expand the partial. The rest of the attribution goes further than 'The National Government' and then applies it to ANOTHER Governments (States). Thereby making a 'Partial' Post incorrect in its interpretation.

However they did not rely on that in making the decision in Geofroy v. Riggs, they relied on an act of congress.

You may wish to read J.C.F. CHIRAC v. the Lessee of A.F. CHIRAC et. al. 15 U.S. 259 (1817) and HAUENSTEIN v. LYNHAM 100 U.S. 483 Also Harvard Law review Volume 33, page 285.

It was not a question in Reid v. Covert
http://www.oyez.org/cases/1950-1959/1955/1955_701_2
Question

Do American citizens abroad retain the rights granted to them by the Bill of Rights thus rendering Article 2(11) of the United State Code of Military Justice unconstitutional?

Last time I checked the UCMJ was a federal law.

SCOTUS has constantly ruled that Member's of The Armed Services, are NOT entirely protected, for many good reasons, by Constitutional Provisions.

When I was in the Air Force I found that reading the UCMJ made for some very fascinating reading.

It was the 50 amp breaker in the basement that took me out. That is the circuit to the crunching den. And when that went, it took the main breaker with it.

Guess it was the sum total of all of the crunchers that finally went thermal on the breaker and took the whole house down. The 200 amp main went out too.
Everything went dark.
Went downstairs and started to kick all the breakers off and back on.
It was the main 200 amp that went crazy on me.
I would never have pegged the mains to go out.
Everything is OK, and protected. Not like a few years ago when the daisy chain of lolly pops started to go off in a puff of smoke.
As you may recall, I then ran a 50 amp 240v subfeed box to service the crunchers.
All protected with their own nice little 15 amp feeds.

I am gonna have to check out just how close I am to maxxing out the 200 amp main though. I think it was just a fluke thingy.

Mark did'nt you have some thunder storms roll through. You might have had a spike that kicked out the breakers. And when was the last time you checked the ground to your house. Which reminds me, Id better check mine.

One of the Player's has just Left the Field, and gone home.

Ukrainian conflict is more like a war between Russia and the U.S.

Maybe Canada would like to partition off a chunk of land the size of Israel so that they could leave that god forsaken middle east and live in peace with nice neighbors on all borders. Im sure that, That would finally end the crap that goes on in said middle east region.
Look, When you have countries that border you and want you dead, And say so in the world press. And when they get sick of rocket attacks and decide enough of this crap. You smarmy elietists say, Oh that is so wrong.
Well launching rockets against another country is wrong. But I guess Hamas gets a pass on that.

..
Only one do I answer to.......And beware...........for she is a friend of mine.

We've just got back from seeing that movie. Its pretty good.

Tickle your feathers?
Or are there some gulrz out there that like being dominated?
It's only been the top novel in the world for weeks, so don't think this is unique to me.
I luv being on top, and am rather good at it.

I went to see Lucy, not 50 shades of grey. I am quite sure 50 shades of grey will be as stupid as the book.

Get your mind out of the gutter.

The wife and I have a movie date at noon to see Lucy.

Hi Angela, Back in the mid 80"s I had a garden and grew cucumbers. That year my second wife and I canned 40 quarts of pickels. Well after eating a quite a few quarts we got sick of picklels. Anyone who came for a cook out and liked the pickels got sent home with a few jars:)
Just remeber that after you can anything, If you can push that lid down, Its seal has been broken.
I helped my now wife and her mother do 80 quarts of relish back in 98. What a grueling job that was.
But you will enjoy learing how to do it. I watched my mom and grandmom can back when I was a kid.

Or the normal human being in general as it seems...
"Normal"; interesting. Berkley normal is not normal in the real world. Just saying.

The white flag over Brooklin bridge , seems some arn't to happy with the response you Americans have had so far to the Russian crisis

OMG; you people must understand US can't find you on a map. The white flag was flown by skateboards in protest to them being banned from the bike lanes on said bridge.

Sorry world you just don't matter.

This reminds of the time we went to Vegas and some Americans asked my aunt where she was from, so she said "Canada". They asked her where that was.

When I was in school a long long time ago I loved geography. I will have to ask my grand kids if they even teach it any more.

I would have popped in earlier, But I put off watchig some Tv shows I recorded yesterday. Plus what I recorded today. I had 3 hours to watch.


Time-shifting can pile up quickly. I have a ton to watch.

And I really dont like watch over an hour and a half of tv at a time. Live is one thing, But recorded for some reason just grates on me. But being on second shift I have to record.

Edit- and Im going to bed night all.
