Nope, just an early doctors appointment today.

Abduction is scheduled for tonight. Snow is falling to cover ET's tracks.

Just a few pics from today. The snow has let up for now and even started melting off a little, but there's another wave a-comin'. Could get 3 - 6 more inches before it's done.

Looking southeast from the front of my house.

Looking north from the back of my house (Polaris appears over the peaks in the distance).

Looking west-northwest from the back of my house. What you don't see is 5000 more feet of mountain hidden by the clouds.

And one more from almost 2 years ago. Looking south out my driveway, the brown smudge below the big bush in the center is a railroad tie. They're stacked 5 high at that point and you can just see the top one.

Wow Team, were really crunching. I have just past 600 on my RAC and 23000 on my credits. I'm not as high as some but it all goes for helping the team! :smt003

Im sure it will. I was getting about the same on my old system. And it went nuts once I got this new one. Have gotten up to 60,000 in the last 3 months since getting it. 3 to 4 hours per seti wu. Compared to 2 to 3 days. Can't wait to see yours go nuts. :smt023

Well, just don't kill ME to get that view. There's a double-wide about a half mile down the road that's vacant.

Got about another 3 inches of snow overnight. Here's one from this morning that you can actually see the mountain.

Oh, and it's 1 (one) friggin' degree right now. [smilie=eek.gif]

We have been moving up in leaps and bounds.

I am just kinda curious as to when things will stabilize and we start moving more slowly.

For the time being......

KM I dunno, we are a young team, and forgetting about total credit, our RAC is very impressive... ranked #91 (this is pretty amazing) and our ratio per member (at only 23 active according to the seti rankings) is probably in the top #10 world-wide!!

Nice RAC guys (and girls)....way to go Team!

(i now have my second machine crunching, but its only an old K6 :-< better than nothing i say!)

EDIT: Oops, looked at the wrong line, corrected some numbers.

It's already started slowing. Check out the very bottom of this page; 30 days ago we were moving up around 200 positions a day. Now it's about 30.

The credits will still count, ranking position will get harder and harder.

But we're still moving up!!!!

Slow gains as opposed to quick gains are still gains!!!

Works for me. Especially since we aren't really numbers oriented...lol

I gotta agree with you KM. DWW, TL and I were on together after you faded into the darkness and it was pretty bad. Then DWW went to take a nap before work and the sound cleared up again.

But it could just be that the third person in causes problems, although if this is true, it's just started.

One more milestone for today (at least from me), it's been 26 years since John Lennon was shot on my 21st birthday (that makes me 47 for the mathematically challenged).

[smilie=occasion13.gif] [smilie=icon_butt.gif] [smilie=iagree.gif] [smilie=occasion13.gif]

I always figured I'd wrap a hotrod car around a telephone before I was 30. I guess I'm a better driver than I gave myself credit for. Although I did almost go off a 500 foot cliff once. :smt003

You and me both but my cliff was a mountain highway in Mexico that we almost fell off of when we went sideways while going around a downhill bend driving in neutral to conserve gas.
Don't ever coast down a mountain highway as the wheels lock up too easily when the brake it applied. lol

Well i FINALLY cracked the 10K mark on SETI@HOME......

Hey, does anyone know how to increase the download cache on SETI@HOME?? I mean i do one work unit and at around 90%, the system downloads another so there is a max of only 2 items in the queue at once... can you setup BOINC to download say 5 or 10 units of work at a time but then cruch sequentially???

The reason i ask is cause my broadband is unstable sometimes and well i lose a few days work!!

Best way I know of to increase the number of units you get is to increase the number of days between contacts to the server.

Set it to 4 or 5 days and you will ( should, anyway ) get enough work units to hold you for that amount of time.
