...how the world saw Ronald Reagan...

And that's outside my back door, Ang...

And, Celttooth, I bloody well hope not – and I live outside the range of that species, although they do occasionally turn up in California...

Well, it's Judgement time, not that there are a lot of choices...

In Third Place is Lynn for:

"I tried to kill the spider with hairspray. He's still alive, but his hair looks Fabuuuuulous!"

In Second Place is Carlos for:

"Spidermite
or
arachnophobitta"

and the winner is and First place goes to The Admiral for:

"Let's see what my radioactive @$$ can do to you."

My caption would have been along the lines of:

"The Spider That Ate Albany!"

The actual spider seen is quite small, though, around ½ an inch (12.5mm) across the legs - the photo was taken at 1:1 on the image sensor. This guy/gal is seen outside my breakfast room window from below with a 105mm macro lens.

PM going out to the Admiral as soon as this is posted...

V8 tasks are named guppy at the beginning.


Incorrect: Green Bank V8 tasks have "guppy" in the file name, but there are Arecibo V8 tasks, too (in fact, I've yet to see a Green Bank task on production SETI, just on Beta...)

I currently have 15 GPU's crunching for SETI. 13 of them were purchased specifically for that purpose.


I don't have quite that many, but a lot of them are currently cold, as they don't have any work...

And now they aren't splitting V7 work anymore, as far as I can see...

To keep things moving, it's judgement time...

Dis-honorable mention to those who identified these as ducks - they're Canada Geese.

Honorable mention to Carlos for the idea of Florida — but these are in California (Oakland, to be exact...)

Third to Monday for: "Yawn"

Second to Chris S, for his "Stop eating Daisys" I leave out the rest of his caption as non-"Family-friendly".

First to The Admiral for "Poor Dave... His goose was cooked yesterday."

My caption at this time of year would'a been: "We Survived Christmas!"

PM going out, very soon after this is posted...
