*sidle carefully past Chris* new dance routine?

There was a double outrage!? But I don't have enough eyes to glare with for that! I'll have to go see the damage done to einsteinians :) you know, after I've *pause for purpose of yelling at family: I KNOW YOU'RE HUNGRY* ...finished cooking our somewhat teensy bit late dinner :)

If you also yell: "Don't start, you got food last
week!" It really calms things down in any house!

Well exactly, good god, they'll want clean sheets on the beds every month next! No gratitude with some families ......

Beds? You give them beds and they'll never move out!

What shall we drink to this time? Activity? Inactivity? Annual sheet changing day?

Hey Annie, I'm hungry too. But pretty soon, I'll be home and I can nuke some leftover pizza. Kind of feel more like bacon and eggs, though.

And the fire alarm just went off. Bye!

Edit - I suppose I'd better add an example of the photobucket problem - https url, http img, same address, different rendering.

When you press it, does it play the audio of the Hitchhiker's offices PA system saying "DON'T panic! DON'T panic!"?

I suppose it has, and I also suppose I should not complain too loudly, given my past history.

People, I am tired enough already as it is, without having the need or want to have to hold everyone's hands. Please stop spamming this thread with attacks, Youtube URLs and more stuff that upsets others.

Also, please, do not post moderator action emails from this or any other project's forums on these forums. If I leave those, I get into trouble.

Edit: when did I pass through the 10K posts?

SIGH I suppose it is time again:

This, myself, is the OP:
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=8105&postid=46965
Here is a place for all those Seti people to commiserate when the Seti boards are down and they are feeling lost and without direction and absolutely must hit the post button.

Rules:
1) This is the BOINC development board. Their posting rules apply. Their moderator(s) enforce. We are their guest.
2) This isn't the Politics Forum on Seti, consider it the Cafe Forum lite.
3) Have fun. Yes, that is an order! :-)

These rules are enforceable. Generally I don't care much what gets posted here other than the above. However I do get pissed when people try and tell others to bugger off or claim their rules are the rules!

If you want to do politics, there is a Seti Politics forum here. I'm also the OP there and politics is fine, but don't get Jord mad with a flame war! The kitties also have their thread for their links.

P.S. Science, every kind and project, has always been accepted in the Seti Cafe, even though there are dedicated science fora @Seti, so I see no reason to make it off topic here! (Of course BOINC is about every project so it is on topic for all threads on these boards.)

Now obey rule 3! Have fun. Yes, that is an order! :-)

Friggin frackin and on a holiday weekend ....

I think that Gary should be appointed by Jord to be a Mod here.

Funny you say that. I have been toying with the idea to ask for one of you to become a moderator here, also because of my extremely busy schedule away from the computer these days.

But to be able to become that, one needs, in my personal opinion:
- patience
- not be an active mod at Seti
- to have no personal grudge against anyone else around here
- to have at least 100 posts here
- to have been active on these forums the past 3 months
- to be able to see beyond the whine of others
- a thick skin
- to have an active email address to be able to receive 'red-x reports' and inter-mod talk
- be able to kick anyone of this establishment if there's need, without feeling remorse or getting into a personal fight over it off-line

There's probably a couple of other points I can come up with, but let's leave it here. For now.

The work is mostly kicking spammers, and giving warnings to the rest of the rabble about the way they misuse the English language.
I specify that I do not want an active mod at Seti, so as to keep those of you who are frequently temp-kicked at Seti from being immediately banished here as well, only because that moderator feels it's necessary.
One from the other side of the pond, or in Asia/Australia is preferred so we can have a sort of 24/7 presence.
Moderating experience not necessary.
Male or female.
Old or older.
Must be a cat-lover.

Sigh, another job. Do I want another job? Just turned down a job too.

If I look at my Y groups page, I see I'm the mod of oh, too many to count. At least those only take the occasional approve membership/spam removal.

As to active e-mail, I've been trying not to check the personal e-mail while I'm at work.

Former cat owner.

Ah now do I press post or not?

<ed>Did my mouse finger slip on the post button?!!!
