Yes, just noticed that. I expected an hour earlier because of DST, but something like 2:20?

And fixing an error message elsewhere on the website last week has (unnecessarily, IMHO) deprived us of the drying paint on the SSP during maintenance.

Although if you use this

instead of this
https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_server_status.php
you can still see it, since it's not db driven.

Yes, I've been enjoying Terry Pratchett's Disc World series, very funny and insightful

Roger Zelazny's Amber series was pretty awesome. Nine Princes in Amber was the first.
Anything by Heinlein, of course.

Stephen R Donaldson, The Gap Series
1. The Real Story: The Gap into Conflict
2. The Forbidden Knowledge: The Gap into Vision
3. The Dark and Hungry God Arises: The Gap into Power
4. The Chaos and Order: The Gap into Madness
5. This Day All Gods Die: The Gap into Ruin

Vol 1 is very short, it is now often combined into one book with Vol 2.
