My avatar is the seventh Doctor, played by Sylvester MoCoy. My previous one was a well-doctored real picture of myself. I'm pretty sure I don't have a profile at all. (I did throw one up at Beta because the low user count vastly increases the chances of being User of the Day.)

HHHHHHHHHHHHHHH? Most UOTD lelt us ago EONs AGO... to me it is a joke.
Scipt update is needed. No UOTD Unless you have prossssed a WU by the deadline.

Yes old news. Still a major pet peeve.

CC Sending you care, concern and cats...


Ziggy and Tessie. They did adopt Tinkerbell. The interloper Jefferson is locked out until sometime next year.
Since he has a home, the kitty window is closed.
Rescue requests can be sent to me in Juli 2015 via PM.

The 3XL is now going to Switzerland.
Remember first come first serve.
Just to clarify.....
Please see this thread http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=74716

If you want a shirt, I will find a way within your budget.

Uli, a comment.

You said: "Pluto will always be a planet to me". I'm with you. From the day I was born some 67 years ago (back in the Stone Age), Pluto was a major planet with five known moons and maybe more. In my personal opinion, it always will be, regardless of who might think otherwise. Here is my argument for all to see;

Pluto has a 1,430 mile radius
Mercury has a 1,516 mile radius

There is only a very small difference of an 86 mile radius between the two and yet Mercury is considered a major planet. Why is Mercury considered a major planet and Pluto not? Simply because Mercury is between us and Sol and well within the boundary of the major planets.

Mars has a 2,106 mile radius or 590 miles bigger than Mercury, quite a bit larger. So why is Mercury considered a major planet and Pluto not. Again the answer is simply that Pluto has the misfortune of being the furthest out. Had Pluto been inside the ring of major planets, it too would have remained labeled a major planet. I consider this a very poor excuse for demotion.

A last thought: The word planet means "world that orbits a star". Pluto is a world that orbits Sol.

Welcome to the boards and your support. Do you mind, if one of the Mods, copies this to one of the Science threads? I would be very interested, to know how others feel and what could possible done to reverse that ruling.

I'm living in Germany. So what would it cost for me if you're coming over here to Germany?

Well that depends on where you live. End of May 2015, I will be landing in Frankfurt, then head to Aschaffenburg for a day, then down to Neustadt adW/Mussbach via Mannheim/Ludwigshafen. I also have a day trip planned for 5/30 to Ulm. I also can get a shirt/s to Hamburg/Rissen.

Please send me a PM with your City, as this will be a family get together. My tribe is well situated in Deutschland, depending on attendance, Bonn, Moenchengladbach, Muenchen may also be doable.

I'd have probably just let him find out the hard way, just as I had to....
Or I night have suggested an even more "entertaining" search. You just never know do you.


One thing that is predictable about me is my unpredictability....

Dream on; Night or Might?

I hope so too Chris, on the shinding that is.

Sadly, I am getting requests for sizes, that I no longer have.
Ang said no to third order.
I could personally make this happen, but only via 72 prepaid shirt orders. Color back ground would be your choice. The Logo belongs to Seti@home.

Is Christmas in the air? Thank you to all, who have contacted me in the last few days.
This is first paid, first served. I have a few Ls left, one 3XL that I held back (You snooze and you just lost.) and 10+ XLs.
The lonely 3Xl is $16, the others $13, plus shipping.
I am planning a trip to Germany/UK in May/June 2015. Shipping cost are definetly cheaper.
Prepayment is required for me to stow it in my suitcase.

I just can't get myself to pull the trigger on something I know I'll never use

That isn't the point David. It is a memento and a souvenir of a project that you belong to. You don't HAVE to wear it, just treasure it.


I have mine now...



A bump to make my life a little easier.
