Thanks for the "picture" of the conditions you guys work under. I got a "server out of disk space" today it was very odd but in my very small world of SETI it seemed oddly, "cool", my mini machine has over come the mighty BOINC servers...I win! Any way thanks again for the work you guys do to keep the project alive!

To answer the simple international law question "CAN ISRAEL IMPOSE A NAVAL BLOCKADE ON GAZA"? Simply put, Yes it can, according to the international law of blockade which was derived from customary international law and codified in the 1909 Declaration of London, then updated in 1994 in a internationally and legally recognized document called the "San Remo Manual on International Law Applicable to Armed Conflicts at Sea". Some of the key rules, a blockade must be declared and notified to all belligerents and neutral states, access to neutral ports cannot be blocked, and an area can only be blockaded which is under enemy control. On the basis that Hamas is the ruling entity of Gaza and Israel is in the midst of an armed struggle against that ruling entity, the blockade is legal. Whether or not you agree, it was legal, and the part you will really dislike...the use of force to enforce the blockade and by the Isreali's was also legal, you don't have to like like it but it's legal, moral...well thats a very personal decision, if you hate the evil Jews then its wrong, if you hate the evil terroist Hamas this it was right. This moral decision can only be made by either ignoring the set of facts and actions that makes your side look bad and only use events thats support your position or look closley and fairly at both sides. Personally, the Palestinians have traditionally killed anybody that was Jewish or supported Isreal and the Jews have responed in force killing Palestinian civilians. If you read these posts, It's easy to tell who hates Isreal and who supports Palestinians...both have only justified their actions by blaming the other side and take NO RESPONSIBILITY for their own side murderous actions or try to stop their own sides violence! I'm done.

I'm getting "no tasks available" quite often, are the servers down or is this really a shortage of tasks? Thanks
