I know these are low-priority, but...

1) the "science status" page hasn't been updated for over two years. I'd say either take it down, or get someone to work on it!

2) the "Client Connection Statistics" page was last updated in March of 2013! Same comment: take it down or get it working... this was (in the past...) usually an easy fix...

3) If Arecibo isn't going to share the data of where the telescope is looking, take that part of the Science page down. Look into getting that data from Greenbank, and/or the LOFAR array...

One of the download servers is totally FUBAR, and needs to be reset or re-booted... on some of my computers the downloads come through as normal, on others I get the dreaded "transient HTTP error"...

Yep, still getting sticky downloads.
Lots & lots of retries and then they finally come through Ok for a while. Till the next log jam.

Glad to see they managed to get the system back up again. Hopefully it'll make it through the weekend.


Some downloads getting through (especislly when they're on a different computer from one that "hangs"...) and others hanging, particularly when a whole batch hangs, is a symptom of one of the download servers hanging, and needing a kick in the pants... (10 year veteran of SETI hangs...)

"Duck" is also an appropriate response to the US presidential election results...

For the extra points, no one got the right city (Frankfurt am Main) nor the correct district (Bahnhofverteil). Those who got Germany were correct, but I asked you to pinpoint - and a country is hardly a pinpoint! (I would'a taken just the city...)

As to the captions:

Third is rob smith with:
You are only envious [because] I can do this and your car is too long to do it.

Second is the Admiral with:
Parallel parking during Octoberfest.
Sorry Sir, that event is in München and the photo is in Frankfurt; also the photo was taken in May 2015.

In FIRST, and next picture is [Ta-Da!] anniet with:
If you suddenly run out of road, stop.

Anniet and Lynn, there's something wrong with your signature photo...

PM going out to anniet as soon as I post this...

Bousu points if you can pinpoint the location without looking at my Flickr® account...

I ran into one of those stupid Star Trek:TOS doors — that didn't duck out of my way — at full speed! McCoy couldn't do much, and was grumbling all through the operation...

I must decline as well, as I'll be on a plane (to Bangkok) in a few hours, and don't have the time to look for a picture, even among my own...(it's breakfast time, my current local time [Hong Kong...])

And that's THHG to the likes of you ;-)
