G'morning everyone, from a sunny Deepwater Cup Day.

Well my race weekend guests have settled into the house well (so all my blood, sweat 'n' tears didn't go to waste) and they're already to go punting on the horses (they still have 2hrs for the gates to open yet).

Anyhow, while the races are on a group of us uninterested 1's will be having a BBQ and beer day here (set to kick off in 3hrs) instead of baking in the sun watching horses run around a circle. :-D

Cheers.

Us rural firefighters call them "Hooligan bars" as what hooligan wouldn't want 1?


That is a witty alternative name, isn't it... amazing how the name lends itself so readily to this. Didn't know you were a firefighter... Volunteer or pro?
....

Volunteer for 12yrs.

Cheers.

I noticed that gbt_splitter#4 got briefly pulled from duty. Now back. I wonder if it was hanging up the output. Really frustrating that my Linux box is still unable to get any appreciable work while my slow Windows7 boxes have mostly full caches.

The guys are probably trying to break up the congregation of splitters working on the 1st GBT file in the list (still looks to be a half dozen splitters still working on the 1 file when you zoom in on it) and get them working on other files instead and you just caught them in the act. ;-)

Cheers.

Well I'm just taking a coffee break here as I've finally got the kitchen ready for its wash down and without any interruptions so far this morning.

I hear you there Grant, some days are an effort just to get out of bed to start with.

After looking into the history of my 2 rigs here's a breakdown.

When we had that period of just Arecibo MB work both my rigs produced a combined RAC of 103K.

With a good mix of all types of work they produced a combined RAC of 92K.

With a good mix of just MB work produced a combined RAC of 86-88K.

Now with just these GBT the combined RAC is less than 60K (and with time may even drop to that magical "0" figure that some are predicting).

But it is nice that D.A. has finally fessed up to what a lot of us were telling him years ago.

Cheers.

G'morning everyone, from a very foggy start in the highlands down under.

Well I was hoping to have the kitchen done yesterday, but a constant stream of visitors saw the end of that, so I'm hoping to get the job finished this morning before Beer O'clock arrives.

Other than my banged up left knee I seem to have recovered from the rest of the injuries that my tumble last week gave me and hopefully the knee will be right next week.

Anyhow, I better go and get back into it so I'll be able to enjoy the weekend.

Cheers.

The immoral and unethical Democrat Party is not willing to negotiate with Trump to keep the DACA kids in the USA.


Given that person's life long record of reneging on business agreements and contracts would you be so foolhardy as to negotiate with him?
No US bank will loan him money given his history with them.
Making a deal with a thief and liar is no deal.

Which is why no one wants to go to the table with him in charge, guess who loses.

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

Well 1 more floor mop and I can put the laundry back together, along with a few things that have been taking up room in my shed, but I will have to do a quick trip into town this morning for another month's worth of pills.

With a bit of luck I'll also get to make a start on the kitchen today which is the last room I have to do before the weekend gets here.

Anyhow, it's time for another coffee break before I grab the mop and bucket.

Cheers.

G'morning everyone, as we here in the highlands wait for the storms to return today.

Well I finally got another floor mopping done to the family room (without going ass up this time), but going by the water it'll need another mop yet. Yep the fall didn't do me any favours as by the afternoon my legs were losing contact with the brain so 3 falls later had me in bed bandaged and strapped up.:-(

Anyhow I'm hobbling around a lot better today so a few trips to the beer fridge in a couple of hours should be possible. :-)

Cheers.

Since they couldn't stand Obama, can you imagine the reaction to Oprah?

It would do them all good I reckon. LOL

Wiggo, you get the back up prize. Yes it is rain gutter! I had declared Stargate the winner but he passed, so you get the honors!!!! Please post a new tool.
I am on the road too much to carry this at the moment.

I'm sorry, but no can do as I'm flat out trying to get my house cleaned up from the mess my eldest daughter left it in so I can accommodate a few people for the local races here in less than 2 weeks.

Cheers.
