Are there some clowns?
Not only are there few clowns around here, there are also a few 'ists as well (mostly the same people in both cases). ;-)

I see the new splitter_throttle_sah process is not running now. Hasn't started back up since I first checked on the project 45 minutes ago and the RTS buffer was down in the mid 500K range. Up to 620K range now. Wonder if this is the reason we are not getting any work. It was enabled all the time since Sunday and only went disabled for the outage.
You must remember Keith that the SSP only gives a snapshot of what is going on at that moment and between those moments that process could've been on/off a few times in between and work is getting out (you just have to be lucky enough to get in 1st before others do or you miss out and there are a lot of us hitting them up atm). ;-)

Cheers.

If the SSP is updating, you get a snapshot every ten minutes. I basically sit on the website all day and look at the SSP literally dozens of times a day. I think I am getting a pretty valid view of the process during the day. Hard to think the law of averages doesn't come into play for me.
If SETI ran constant numbers then your theory might have a chance, but knowing what I know tells me that your theory is flawed (just like CreditScrew). Nothing here now works on stable averages anymore Keith (and it hasn't for years now) and that's the flaw in your thinking as even 10min SSP snapshots can turn out to be 20-30mins snapshots more often than not.

Cheers.

I have never used PayPal (as I could see problems with it years ago) and any online ordering that I do must accommodate BPay or it doesn't get ordered.

G'morning everyone, from an A.N.Z.A.C. Day in the highlands down under.

After doing the Dawn Service and just coming back from the morning march I'm ready to do something, I just have to find that something.

Back in the day Grant when I owned 1 of these,

and because of the 11.5 to 1 slugs used in the rebuild of the engine, I use to go down to the local oil refinery to fill up the 32imp gallon (144L) tank with a 50/50 mix of avgas 115 and the leaded super of the day to stop pinging or if I was somewhere where I could only get super then there was a 5L container under the bonnet that was filled with 3L of methylated spirits topped off with water that supplied an injection unit fitted under the carby to stop the ping (but I'd lose 50bhp at the rear wheels using it).

Anyhow, seeing that Beer O'clock is still a while off, I'll get myself another coffee and work out finding that something.

Cheers.

Australian tourists escape bus fire on way to Gallipoli Anzac service.

A group of young Australian and New Zealand travellers have lost all their belongings after a bus taking them to the Anzac Cove Dawn Service at Gallipoli burst into flames.

The 43 passengers were four hours into the journey in Turkey when smoke started belching from the engine and they were told to get off.

G'morning everyone, from a cool and cloudy start in the highlands down under.

Yes I do save that methanol/ethanol mix that comes off the top Grant and I use for cleaning purposes only (I already use 95 octane E-10 in my wagon anyway).

Well yesterday that WiFi extender didn't work as intended and the silly little quick start guide that came with it was totally useless so last night I downloaded the full 160 page manual for it, which I'll get around to reading sooner or later, but today I have to drop my wagon down the hill for its annual service and road worthy check then I'm off to install another surveillance camera setup.

Now that being an 8 camera setup (instead of the usual 4) may delay Beer O'clock here today, but hopefully not by too much, so I'll have 1 more coffee before I get started.

Anyhow, keep your beers close and cold.

Cheers.

But it passes the time and is interesting. As the participants in the Political Threads understand.
There we have it! It passes the time for some. Must be bored with life :-)
Close, more like has no life and never will.
Yes that's just confirmation of what we already knew.

Legalising cannabis adds $3.6bn to Australian economy, budget office says.

Legalising cannabis would reap the Australian economy almost $2bn a year, the Parliamentary Budget Office has found.

The Greens plan to not only decriminalise cannabis but also legalise it for adult use is the latest case study of political differences, with both Labor and the Coalition looking into legalising it for medicinal use, but going no further.

But claiming that the “war on drugs had failed”, the Greens leader, Richard Di Natale, last week proposed the full legalisation of cannabis, which would allow adults to grow up to six marijuana plants for personal use.
Cheers.
