Message 2013945 - Posted: 2 Oct 2019, 2:50:20 UTC

I had some downloads that stalled after todays outage. It seems to me that suspending the Network access before the maintenance outage and then re-enabling it later was an automated work around.

My problem is I can't quite get my head around the day and start/stop times. Someone explained this once... someplace. Try again?

In graphics and/or website design they talk about "wireframes" and now I see a REAL one :)

How the goal posts have changed. I remember when 450,000 RAC would put you up near 5th place. Now you MIGHT make it into 9th place.....

Hurray for pricing behavior in response to supply and demand.
I have been following the prices of the Amd 3900x cpu on eBay.
When I last looked, a number of Vendors were now offering it at $550 which is only a $50 price premium over list price.

Hurray!

Have you looked at Amazon. I see the 3900X listed and in stock at its normal $499.99 MSRP price.

Greetings,

NordVPN has been hacked in 2018! JayzTwoCents has a video about the hack and was also a promoter of NordVPN.

Here is a link to the article where NordVPN confirms the hack.

Jay says they (NordVPN) are "spin doctoring" the whole thing and has sent them an email stating that he has suspended his promotion of their service until such time that NordVPN comes clean.

Have a great day! :)

Greetings,

Dang! I gotta get a new battery for my UPS. Both of my PCs were down immediately. NOT a good thing! The UPS maintaining the modem and router kept the Internet alive throughout the outage. How cool is that? :) I should probably get an UPS for my 3 Pis too.

We had an outage yesterday. A transformer blew on the power pole. Lines burnt and melted off the connections and were lying on the ground. The fire dept. showed up and then the utility company. The outage was over an hour sooner than was predicted. Woohoo! :)

I believe that transformer was on its way out for several months. We consistently had brown outs and short blackouts for quite a while. Hopefully that will be a thing of the past now. :)

Have a great day! :)

I have watching the leaderboard's RAC's and it looks like everyone's RAC has gone up a couple thousand. I am assuming its the mix of data we are crunching. I believe I have seen it before.

Anyone got a better idea?

Amazing how cheap decent quality batteries can be had on eBay. Just did an augment here a while back, and there's several places out of LA with decent prices including shipping.
