You did check all around and under the bed, to make sure it wasn't there? :)

Hold on...

......

I can't see it...

Clues are those things that are passing right by me at the moment, Rob. It's a bit worrying I didn't check when I first got up though, because crawling about the floor searching for an amphibian is something I've got some not inconsiderable experience in.

edit: the one before this one was dead. Except it wasn't. It had just tried to convince me it was - when it then did more than convince me it very much was - far from it

If it did any of that under the bed, for a fair portion of its day it would have been comatose.

Hibernation, under the bed.

But the BOINC app is fine, I swear... :)
https://theintercept.com/2017/11/24/staggering-variety-of-clandestine-trackers-found-in-popular-android-apps/

Exodus security researchers identified 44 trackers in more than 300 apps for Google’s Android smartphone operating system. The apps, collectively, have been downloaded billions of times. Yale Privacy Lab, within the university’s law school, is working to replicate the Exodus findings and has already released reports on 25 of the trackers.

Yale Privacy Lab researchers have only been able to analyze Android apps, but believe many of the trackers also exist on iOS, since companies often distribute for both platforms.

Seti is down at 5am local time.

Not your local time but PST which is theirs.

So that my alarm clock goes off at 6.15, I have to set it for 12.51

It wasn't always like that. It just is now.

edit: That's not far off PST time if my head just did the right thing with the maths it got involved with... which now I've thought about it I don't think it did.

Funny, Chris. I didn't have any problem determining what timezone you might have been referring to.
Too bad the splitters are crashed; it's cool here this evening and a bit of extra heat would not have been amiss.

It was Zero C at 7am this morning, and it s going to be -1C tomorrow apparently.

Winter drawers on :-))

It's about 32f here right now, as opposed to the all time record high of 81f two days ago.
Not doing wonders for the ski industry up in the high country, for sure.

What might have been intended is not always a wise assumption* - without clarification. We do at least, now have that, gentlemen. ;-)


*As amply demonstrated - This is Spinal Tap parental guidance might be necessary.

As I have already posted on the main SETI board:

Apparently the Master Science database (that's the long-term storage of completed results, not the day-to-day BOINC server that we interact with every day) crashed after 241 days of continuous running. It's restarted, and appears to be running OK, but I guess they're keeping it lightly loaded overnight so they can run further tests in daylight.

It's funny how some things are forever changed in your mind by other things that once you've seen, you can never disassociate your head from.

The American National Anthem is one of them. You can blame Leslie Nielson for that. Stonehenge is another... thanks to Spinal tap :)

Gentlemen? Who let them in? Must have a word with the doorman, only riff raff allowed :-)

Who said you had the right to expel me.
King George V at the Inauguration of the Royal Corps of Signals at Maresfield in 1920 said in his speech we were the Officers and Gentlemen.
It was a mistake on his part, but you try telling the Monarch he was wrong.

Dare we assume message 83381 marks an elevation in our status? I will think so until informed otherwise. ;-)

@Chris: I am glad to hear you have had a pleasant afternoon, Sir.
