Here is the News!
That needs a BONG - new committee formed - BONG - hold the front page - BONG - read all about it...

No, it needs this song played in the background all the time. :)

Yup, that'll do.

At first I got an ad about Alpacas in Peru, to a soothing background of plinky-plonk music. For a moment I thought that was what you were suggesting!

Congratulations (or is it commiserations?) Richard - I'll raise a glass in your direction this evening.

Thanks Rob - I'll raise one in your direction too.

So far, no commiserations are needed - it's been eerily quiet in here, after frantic last-minute preparations yesterday (you don't see all the paddling that goes on below the waterline). Maybe it's the calm before the storm: ask me again when I get back from Paris next weekend.

Pretty obvious choice considering the committee members. Congratulations Richard.

The choice of Richard as moderator may need an explanation. He and I have agreed that this is a temporary assignment, during the duration of the thread(s) in which the work group explains the changes happening to BOINC and what the new rules are to follow for all who want to help BOINC out. The rest of the group thought the initial thread would need strict moderation, which is why I told Richard I'd make him temp-moderator for the duration of this happening, if he agreed with that. Gladly he did.

On the one hand, I never expected the thread to be going out of hand immediately upon it being posted. On the other hand though it is very quiet in there and in the email counterparts. Coming up to 18 hours and no reaction. Apparently the BOINC community doesn't know what to do with it.

Back to Richard and his modship, it's primarily for countering bad reactions in the Work Group's News thread(s). I've told him he doesn't have to do one single thing about anything else on the boards here, if he doesn't want to. All of his moderation actions will be recorded by Apache, just as all other moderator actions are, so no sweat there. We can always check whether what he did was warranted or not. But I don't think he'll go all Dagorath on everyone. :)

Cheers.

Obviously everybody fled from the message board when they saw I'd been made a mod. That's why there haven't been any posts.

Glares around. Anybody want to contradict?

Richard needs to do no such thing. I would appreciate it if you stopped baiting like that.

I understand that your living quarters have been reduced enormously since you got the warning at Einstein. Consider yourself warned here now as well.

A sense of humour seems to be lacking around here at present which is a shame.
Coming from you, that is indeed humorous :-)

This thread has become quite quiet since Jord left, is it possible his replacement has anything to do with it?

Don't believe all the rumours you read. Who said I left?

Jord said before that he was NOT leaving, and at present he is in Paris on a seminar.
I never said I was going to Paris either. In this post I said maybe. But it was not to be. No meeting of the magnificent beard man. I'm still some 360 kilometers North North East of there. And glad too, because apparently we get half a monsoon tomorrow. The Germans dubbed it Perryman, it's a low pressure area with lots of wind and a canal load of water (possible remnants of Harvey).

That delightful storm has just done a quick dump on the way over the UK, so should have plenty left for you guys.
I've got a life jacket if you need it, just pop over here and collect!
