I rarely post any of the mixes from my show, however the e-mail demands and requests are at an all time high to hear it again.

Since the days before Dark Side Of The Moon I have always been a major Pink Floyd fan. And indeed, had the great pleasure to chat with each of them many times and to introduce them at several major concerts.

Pink Floyd will never appear together in concert again. For me, I think that may be best. It would be nearly impossible for them to live up to the enormous expectations of the fans.

I consider myself extremely fortunate to have been able to see Pink Floyd live about 7 times in various cities.


I'm lucky enough to tune this in on the stereo out of Oshawa, Ontario (94.9 FM) but he's also streamed live on the net:

Actually it was considered a bug to allow html in team name.
Security issues I think.

Suspend all other projects. Then update Einstein. Worked here a minute ago.

I'm starting to make a new set of S4 workunits. I am now confident that our database can handle the strain, so these new WU have a 2-week deadline.

Big news for me and many others running slow machines on dial-up.
Big, big news. Big thanks!
Really hope this works out.

Good news.
All i did is enable network access and BOINC did the rest. Upload and report.

In effect that is what i (and probably many others) are doing manually from time to time to keep up with this project.
I am now considering dedicating one of my crunchers exclusively to Einstein and detaching from Einstein on the others.
I hesitate to do this because it feels contrary to the spirit of BOINC but more likely from my learned fear from the early days of SETI Classic when often i found myself with a cold and lonely CPU.
Einstein outages are rare and short and BOINC is able to overcome this easily.
So what am I waiting for?

Yes.
Increasing the deadline by 7 days would allow my PII and in use laptop to get back to crunching E@H.
Truth be told, these machines may better serve SETI and Predictor.

Your complaint has been heard!

Sextant 4.67 is a test of project preferences.

If you go to your account preferences and set "static graphics" to "no" then the static parts of the screensaver (bitmaps and text) will not be displayed. This feature is provided for older screens to prevent burn-in, but it's also the first test of the preferences system.

Understood!
But maybe not so much confusion as incredible advancements. Quite possibly spurred on by Einstein@Home team.
And now look what ya did. 4.19 just replaced 4.13 as public release.
