come on guys give him a bit of credit he has been working flat out for 37 hours without a break and no hint of a glitch and he is probably past the worst as most reporting should be done now and backlog of validations is covered off as well

positive thoughts please...

its probably because he knows a potential replacement is on the way :)

[Hi Mark! :-)]




Hiya......

Just ask the 'nonbelievers'....

They think we're all nuts.

I wear my Seti T shirt once in a while.....

And such looks I sometimes get.

Like......"You think they're out there?? You are 'out there'..."

I suppose I am. And damned proud of it.

That dialog is Donald Sutherland and Gavin MacLeod. It's from a 1970 movie called Kelly's Heroes.

Thanks.......
I never watched the movie, must do so now.

There are some things about the war that were never explained.

But, I will get a bit hard to deal with if I get into that bit.

So, let's not go there just now.

I do luv Donald, and his son......both most excellent actors.

Interview.....

Sr.'s voice is something special, isn't it?

I think you'll love the movie Mark. Clint Eastwood stars as Kelly, and a bunch more of your favorite stars in it. It's one of my favorites. Picture Archie Bunker as the General. The sound track is fantastic too.

I always explain that Seti is for both "believers" and "nonbelievers".

Believers can prove there are intelligent life forms by running SETI@home...

The bandwidth according to the cricket graph has been maxed out now for almost 37 hours. Will mork be able to take that beating until the next planned outage, or will the server dive again?

The pain, the punishment....:-)

For those who like to worry, mork's crash last week happened about 3 hours after the downloads came out of saturation. I think we may be approching that time...

"Kelly's Heroes" was written by Troy Kennedy Martin, who also wrote "The Italian Job". The two stories have some similarities . . . :)

Clint Eastwood is in the title role. Donald Sutherland plays a barking mad (but loveable) tank commander.
