And didn't check the Wiki definition of the actual word used - which nowhere contains the e-word.

...I just wait for the summary to come along

Someone went through Annies posting history, saw the word "elephant" and "eat" in the same comment. Thus, they put two and two together to add up to 5.328563, got triggered and sent an angry PM about extinction of animals or summut.

The end.

Nope, not there https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=11835&postid=81356 but several other animals are mentioned as being on her diet, snail being one.

I haven't had monkey brains, but a friend claims to have had them.

Got lost in that post as to who was saying what.

TL-DR.

See? Skim/skip over, just as I was saying. After which I surmised she wants y'all to go back and intently re-read to find the missing elephant in the post. Which may have been the biltong (of course, it's a Dutch word...)

Can't be bothered, if it was important it wouldn't need to be addressed months later once again.

I meant to pop back earlier but some life happened and I didn't.

It wasn't important at all :) I just got dumbfounded to have it reiterated at me.

That Michael Portillo thing sounded interesting. I didn't watch it though.

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend :)

edit: oh my... that's a lot of additions to the not with us thread :(

omg, knowingly or unknowingly makes no difference...Due to some mood-fluctuations, I'm going to take a long weekend away from the computer now :)

I awoke Saturday morning to a dead router. After replacing it one of my boxes had an invalid IP address. After spend 3 days trying to fix it I gave up and took it into a shop. I hate it when I have to spend money on computer repairs.

A windstorm yesterday took my electricity down for 5 1/2 hrs yesterday, that and my recalcitrant LAN is taking a toll on my RAC at Seti and Einstein. I'm very happy to have the electricity back since last night was the coldest in 14 mos.

One's own shall not be resuscitated for some months. Tethered to a smartphone with connectivity absent (more often than not) has been declared an exercise in F-fing futility. I wish you better luck, sir. :-)

With no cause for further complaint, a flag for the duration might be said to needful.

Using the android app is a Royal Pain In The Ffing Behind. Using the naiveboinc app is the only thing that runs on this older android tablet. It is to easy to stuff up.

You can report to any of us. What do you have to report? Is it good news? With bad news, there's the door....

The gravity of the data from Einstein is a heavy matter.

Sometimes a friend can be a needful thing :) I'm sorry to hear you're having crunching problems, Admiral. I read your post in another thread and I know the feeling that a depleting rac is a door closing on you. I've had help in the past keeping mine ajar until I'm able to kick it open again, and I believe in all that "pay-it-forward" stuff too :)

I left a post for Chris to read for his crunching only for science rant. Wonder how he will respond to it?

`Your Honour, if I may, I have a legal right to either agree or disagree, & as such, feel that the post in question has no relevance.
