Message 63582 - Posted: 13 Aug 2015, 8:08:32 UTC - in response to Message 63581.  

That and the noise my water cooling fan is producing.

It would appear that cat hair doesn't care about filters, it'll get through where it wants to and clings to the fans which then go make all kinds of noise. The other day when I had the system open, I'd also noticed that despite me following the water cooling build manual precisely, that the fan on the radiator was blowing out through the radiator, instead of sucking in. So I just turned the fan around, idle temps are already down by a staggering 5 degrees centigrade!

I also turned the fan on the back of the case around, so it is now blowing out. It was also sucking. Last I switched the power connector of the water pump from the CPU fan connector to a PWR fan connector. Which leaves me with a visit to the UEFI to set CPU fan control to manual and this PWR fan to Full On.

Fun.

Message 63586 - Posted: 13 Aug 2015, 9:21:25 UTC

To continue my monologue, an answer again to the people asking for Mark's banishment on these forums. I wish you would think before you requested that, as you're creating a bad precedent if we were to comply.

Because if we were to hide the post that Mark made and banish his hide, I'd have to start hiding everyone's posts and banish them, who are saying rude/threatening things about anyone else, the developers included. That includes of course you not being able to yell at David anymore through here or the Seti forums, we'd have to draw that same one line here.

So my answer is No, I am not going to banish Mark. You can of course always petition my decision with the other moderators. See what they think of it, but I feel they'd rather not burn their fingers on the matter. ;-)

The only time a multi-project ban would be in order, is if the person had gone to the point that UC Regent policy would call for it. Something like terrorist threats against UC employees might qualify. Police involvement for sure. Above the pay grade of "volunteer moderator"

I understand Chris' thought. Like most places bar regulations. You show up already drunk and they have to throw you out. But we aren't serving booze.

Also I've had a couple PM's re: Bill W. Bill W a/k/a William Griffith Wilson, co founder Alcoholics Anonymous.

Mark's answer is more telling. Obviously he knows he has a problem, he has said so many times. His answer is that he prefers being a drunk. That must mean he likes being treated as a drunk. His choice.

Okay, I have had a small conversation with Eric. Know now what happened last night and know what to do next time. Also emailed the other moderators with that for when they're around and see the faeces hitting the spinning object.

I do not give a flying fiddle-faddle what anyone posts here.

Jord is welcome to babysit any and all tantrumming infants, as he sees fit.

I just hope, for Jord's sake, that babysitting rates are higher these days than the rates I was paid as a teenager.

Welcome Angela.
Yeah, sometimes I also wonder why I'm still voluntarily managing this rabble. But then I would probably get bored quickly if I had to do without them. :)
Good to have you around, so that if need be, if I want a night off, I can always deputize you. :)

@Chris and everyone else, I deal with your post as I deal with everyone else's. I wait until complaints come in. And then wait until more complaints come in. Sometimes I then do nothing, sometimes I do something, depends on the contents of the post. I won't just hide anything just because any of you don't like the author.

And as for that, I think it's a good idea everyone gets it out of their systems. So I will allow all of you who feel the need, and that includes Mark, to post your grievances over this in this thread. Just keep it down on the swearing, if you feel the need to do so.

Okay?

LOL, back to deputizing Chris then. ;-)

Edit: you all have to fend for yourselves for some time now. It's now just past 9pm and it looks like night out here, due to a very heavy thunderstorm coming this way. I'm going to shut down in a minute.




You see from the lack of street lights that this isn't the normal dusk before night.

There are other moderators on SETI. We all share the responsibility/blame. ;~)

Hi Gordon, modding is sometimes initially a singular judgement call, followed by a review and group majority decision. As it should be.


Yes, I agree, and there is a consensus from the SETI@home moderation team.

Message 63606 - Posted: 13 Aug 2015, 21:30:10 UTC

We're in a quiet bit between thunderstorms. Uploading the few photo's I made with my phone. It really has to flash long and hard to be able to catch it on a phone's camera (ISO800).


This was one of the brightest flashes during the first thunderstorm. But then...


This one lit up everything and went on for a full 3 seconds. Time enough for me to take the shot. :)

I do turn everything off during the thunderstorms. Just in case.
Only found earlier that we'd left the balcony door open, and the rain was really falling down, 20 mm/h. The thing though is, my NAS lives right next to this balcony door... Just our luck that these thunderstorms come with neigh on no wind, so all rain just falls down horizontally, none falls onto my balcony.

Anyway, the next lightning fest is starting over my shoulder, time to shut down again.

May be choking to death, page loads on the web are taking forever.
<ed>which might have been a local issue, rebooting the router seems to have things in a better state.

And I should take just a moment to thank all of you for the amazing tolerance and forbearance that you show me during my worst of moments.

In the heat of the moment, I can be rather overbearing. But when the smoke clears, I am truly thankful for your understanding.

You are a rather fine lot.

Thank you,
Mark

I should also thank Eric for those honest comments about me.
They hit home.
Eric and Angela both have been more than understanding over the years, due in large part to their genuine good nature, and the fact that I HAVE been so supportive of the project for many years as well.

And, yes....I do fully understand that my participation and support of the project does NOT buy me carte blanche on the forums.

And the few times I have come to odds with Angela, I do believe she knows and understands that it is just me having a bad day, and not that I have any real underlying issues with her. She is a wonderful lady, and I perhaps should try to respect that even more than I already do.

Well, every day is a new day. Another chance to start anew, and let the bad things of the past fade a bit. And I have been blessed with SO many second chances.

One step forward, two steps back....lessee, that is walking backwards.
Time I changed the cadence, if I only can. And I am the only one who can.

40 years of bad road and bad habits are hard to turn around. Some of it was just plain old bad luck.................... Much was self induced as well, I'll admit.

Meow for now.

Mark

Well, we sure had fun last night. One after another thunderstorm passing directly over. Went on till 5am, but I had managed to fall asleep long before that time.

But not before I made these pictures, again with my phone, ISO800.

This was residual light after an impact.


Juuuuuuuuuuuust missed it.


That's a mighty nice cloud there.


Getting closer.


Almost.


You sure this wasn't taken during the day?

Fingers crossed for you also Jord. I think that is a very sensible way forward, and I completely support your stance. The Cooling off periods used by Seti Main have proved to be very helpful.

@Mark - You say that you do not wish it, and don't want to impose your life on others. But you do just that, and have done for a considerable time. Yes I agree with you, it is sad that Jord has found it necessary to take this action, but you have brought it upon yourself. The remedy lies in your hands, nobody elses.


I have often THANKED the mods for those cooling off periods when I am obviously out of control. It does work for me. And I don't get too angry about them, because when the hammer comes down, I sit and stare at the monitor for a few moments and then tell myself.....'You did it AGAIN, Mark.'

Much better than simply dissing me for a month or more.

I wish they were not necessary as well.
Jord and all the mods try to do what is needed to keep the forums under control.
Theirs, not mine.
I appreciate the support and understanding some of you afford me.
And at times, even I wonder why you are so kind to do so.

Good people, I guess. Better than I am worthy of at times.

And the scheduler went down about half-an-hour before that. Game over for today, I think.

BOINC Master database is disabled. Replica off line.
Maybe the hardware/software didn't like the Seti WOW-Event 2015.
