Speaking of number crunching, can someone please explain why my average work done for Seti@home is dropping right off?? It's basically flatlined since the start of September.
My average was about 1000, it's now 200.
Is it because I use a ATI GPU?

Thanks

Art, like beauty is in the eye of the beholder


As I believe this thread has ably demonstrated, people can say "The Birth of Venus is an 1486 painting by Botticelli, and is most definitely art" but it leaves me totally unimpressed.

I see a lot of buildings here in London and all round the world that in my opinion were designed by artists and are art.

Please note the phrase "in my opinion", you cannot state "well that is art and that is not" Unless you first say "in my opinion"

What people consider art varies,

All would probably agree that this is art



However most would say this is not. As it is just a photograph



However I would be happy with both or either on my wall.

The photo took time for the conditions to be just right, I took lots of shots with different settings at different levels of light, and I like to think of photography as "my art", as I lack the talent to paint or draw.

Art is what pleases you and what attracts your eye. Simple or complicated, art is what you want it to be.

Long live freedom to decide what I consider to be art. No one can "tell" me what to like.

Needing 5.8 gig of storage is ridiculous though, what the hell are they installing on there?

Obviously that was wrong as I only have 2.5 Gb free on my 4S and it installed fine.

The download was 895mb, which was expanded, but then after install all temporary files were removed and I have exactly the same free space on both my iPad and iPhone as I had before.

There is a lot of mis-information around plus I suspect people with less that 895mb free space tried to update over Wi-Fi. I wonder if most people even know how much free space they have?

Technology continues to confuse people...

Frustrated Apple users

...personally had no issues whatsoever updating my iPhone 4S via iTunes.

Yep no problems here, iPad 2 and iPhone 4s both worked first time, now I can text and make calls on my iPad via my iPhone.

Overall technology works quite well for most people so they don't need to know how it works, but as soon as I saw the update was 895mb, I went straight to iTunes.

Oh my, Bernie ... Spitty is a full-colored tortie. Wow. Won't ask how she got the name, though.

:-)

CC

Before I got her, as a kitten, she was introduced to a house with two boisterous young dogs, and spent most of her time "spitting" at them, hence the name.

After her owner died and I took her on I decided to keep the name, she doesn't see to mind.

Guess where I went today!



Haven't tried it yet

I decided to give the Royal Choice Single Malt at £150 a bottle a miss this time.

I see the pic fine, in Comodo Dragon

Doesn't appear In Google Chrome, Comodo Ice Dragon or Superbird.

And no I will not try it in IE!!

So it appears to be a browser setting. Though I have no idea which one.
