I'm supposed to be at a meditation group/class now - on how to. I've been to three and I can't. They've each turned into 90 minutes of a different kind of ghastly. During the second one - I somehow managed to reduce myself to consisting of a right knee and the opposite foot and nothing else ... apart from a near-pathological loathing of the voice that we were supposed to be listening to as our guide. For the last one I was at, I made an enormous success of choking suddenly and very thoroughly on fresh air and disrupt the whole group.

I understand what you're saying. I first heard the term, "mindfulness" last year in reference to a meditation training seminar I went to on recommendation from a friend. I'm already pretty mindful and while I thought the meditation class would help me relax, it just made me edgy and want out of there! lol

My 1/4 acre is enough for me. Thanks for the offer, though.

I'm sorry Admiral. That is not good. Hope you have some ice nearby.

Just taking an ice water break from cutting the grass. It so humid outside, it's crazy. I can feel Tropical Storm Alberto coming.

By the way, am I the only one having trouble loading pages here? I even have a warning that a secure connection could not be made at times.

Interesting you should ask, because I was having that issue with SETI, a couple days ago, but not BOINC.

Well, as long as it appears to be a common thing, I'm not going to worry about it. It just made me wonder if something was wrong.

Anybody have any idea why Google Chrome is a such a memory hog? I only have three windows of it open. What does the (17) mean? Likewise, I have AOL open, but why the (12)? I'm not doing anything except reading email and have a couple websites like BOINC and APOD open.

Ok, well, I was just about to pose this question on SETI's Number Crunching forum, but the site went down, so...

My question is how long do "Error" tasks stay with you? I had quite a few several days ago, and they've gradually whittled down to 6, but I don't understand the process as to how they are picked back up again.

That's the first I've heard of that. I haven't been paying attention to news lately.

I'm going to the library this afternoon. Any good sci-fi book recommendations?
