Well things could improve shortly with the next medical review. That one will include another CT scan. The review & scan will determine whether I lose or keep my licenses. The consultant did tell me (pretty sure that he said it to cheer me up but then again...), that those who use the left hemisphere recover faster & fully than those who use the right hemisphere.

If true... hello road :-)

Fingers crossed for you Sirius thing go well at your next medical , I woul'nt get on another bike even if i was able , like i say to people when they ask ," i had me leg amputated , not a frontal lobotomy , oh just to carry on from seti i've even said that to the police around here ( when they try to "fish" info ;-) ).



Ah dear old Santa Pod. I was there the day that Harold Bull in Stripduster finished the 1/4 mile at just over 100mph in the mid 60's. It had never been done before. Then we had the first Funny Car over from the States, we'd never seen anything like it, especially the night time flame outs!


Do miss the flame and thunder " meet up Pod in November . Think that was before my time Chris but when i used to crew for my Friend " the vampire" used to run up there ( the jet cat Richard Hammond crashed @ Elvindon for Top Gear ) and fireforce 1 exploded

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYyuT3Vu-Gc

And Fireforce 3 went 336.70 over the standing qtr mile ( Martin Hill got a bolloking for doing that coz it "annoyed" the top feulers)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIQ2a2QPQpE

good days were had up there ;-) (specialy after the track had shutdown @ night , always was a "haze" over the pits ;-) even more the other side )

Coz of all the BBQ's firing up honestly ;-)

Yeah right :-) In the 1970's I had a Speedworth licence as an Official Mechanic, and we used to go banger racing at Wimbledon and Aldershot stadiums. Afterwards there were a few puffs there as well :-)) Not that I joined in but the others all did.


The 70's ? i wer'nt about till December '73 $t the 70's was more "lucy in the sky with diamonds" ;-)
They do banger racing at Foxhall stadium near me and Speedway there to , ain't been up there for years . banger mechanic all you need is a good set of hammers , from a ball pein to a sledge ;-) . And think Foxhall is Speedworth

On to another happy subject SETI is mostly up except for the message boards, maybe too much heat from last nights debates?

Every Tuesday morning (Pacific time) we begin a four hour data distribution outage for database and systems maintenance.

It is now gone 6pm at the Seti lab and past 1am Wednesday morning in the UK. Most of the Seti servers are up except Muarae1 which runs the web pages. Is there a problem, or did some people piss them off yesterday?



It's definitely getting late, even for out there. Weird.

More likely a big stink in the Politics part in Seti.
Still I find it curious, that the Mods there are also suppossedly clueless.

Given that, I also know, at times zipped lips are required.

Eric is generally most open out those issues, so hopefully we can have an update on the issue tomorrow.

I think it's more likely E.T. called collect and nobody could find the SETI credit card.

Especially since BETA is up.

At this point, looks like tomorrow morning as it is almost 9PM on the west coast.

Hope this does not affect BOINC/SETI stuff at the colo in any way...
http://www.computerworld.com/article/3122998/it-outsourcing/university-of-california-s-ties-with-hcl-are-complicated.html

“The offshore outsourcing planned at the University of California's San Francisco (UCSF) campus is following a standard playbook. The affected employees expect to train their replacements as a condition of severance. Their jobs will soon be in India and they'll be out of work.”

---- snip -----
“The University of California's San Diego and San Francisco campuses are separate in the sense that they have their own chief executives and IT leadership. But the IT services contract with HCL negotiated by UCSF can be used at any of the 10 campuses in the 190,000-employee University of California system, said UCSF CIO Joe Bengfort, in a recent interview.”

So, the SSP is now 14 hrs behind, splitters are not running, and we are no longer getting tasks ... the bucket is empty, it would seem.
Posting here since the Panic Mode server is also down :)
