Something is wrong with the scheduler - there's over 700,000 wu's in the queue and I'm not getting any, on any of the three computers
tried so far. (Multiple requests at varying times, too, so it's not the limited queue in the sched program itself...) Possibly a "boot in the bum"
is called for...

Just upgraded one o my computers from an nVidia gtx750i to a gtx 1080... watch out, # 9 in the world on Beta... (I only do CUDA for beta, most of the time...)

also, that computer had been down for a week with over-heating problems, so my production score should rise, too...

Newton's door handle...


And let me explain that the "Give us a caption" threads are typically restarted at about 60-65 pages (at 10 posts per page...)... and that I was only making a suggestion... This is a long-standing tradition with the Beets caption contest, dating back to when a lot of people were still using dial-up modems...

Hmm, time for judgement, it seems... [/entish]

In Third place is Sirius B with:
Dumbo strikes again!

In Second place is Mr. Kevvy with:
The only known photograph of the Invisible Elephant

and in First Place is Sirius B, again, with:
Treebeard makes his move.

Take it away, Sirius...

This is an actual sidewalk in Albany, CA, just northwest of SETI central and is what happens when the wrong sort of tree is used as a street planting...
Be careful walking around Albany, most of the sidewalks are at, or nearing, the century-old mark!

PM going out as soon as this is posted...
