I don't think the old deities are vegan, although you can try. If it then means I'm snowed in with the other bearded person, I know who to blame. ;-)

Time to slaughter your best poultry, sheep or goat and give their entrails as offering to your favorite deity:

Monday 4 Mar - Monday 18 Mar

By early March there are signals for Atlantic fronts crossing the UK, bringing a mixture of wet and windy weather to many parts, but also intermittent drier spells. Snow remains possible over higher ground in the north. There are weaker signals for snow to lower levels elsewhere should a cold easterly develop; this remains a small possibility. However, milder conditions remain more likely, although occasional overnight frosts remain possible.

The problem with those spammers is that they can spoof any number via VOIP, genuine included. So I wouldn't witch hunt after them too much. Before you know it you're terrorizing a citizen that has nothing to do with the spammers.

Two more weeks... and still don't know what I am going to do for my second week. Or where I'll have my meet & greet with those of you who want to come prick me with blunt knives. Some of you with extra sharp knives. So please, throw out your ideas. Remember that I don't know where all of you come from so what is a good place somewhere in the middle? Or don't you want to meet me? Is it just Richard, Annie, Rob and me? Cos then we can go to the movies and have a Mickey Dee afterwards, before I put everyone back on the train.
5) Message boards : Questions and problems : Problem with CPU benchmark (Message 90148)

A quad core CPU is one CPU with four physical cores built into it. It counts as one CPU, hence why BOINC shows it as one CPU.
There are systems out there that use two or more CPUs, all with anywhere from 1 to 32 cores, some of these hyper threaded as well. For these the BOINC benchmarks will only show the physical CPU count, not the core count, or the logical count.

When you start BOINC, it will show the amount of cores your CPU has, both physical and logical. For example, my i5 without hyper threading shows as:
15/02/2019 17:26:58 | | OpenCL CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3470 CPU @ 3.20GHz (OpenCL driver vendor: Intel(R) Corporation, driver version 3.0.1.10891, device version OpenCL 1.2 (Build 76427))
15/02/2019 17:26:58 | | Processor: 4 GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3470 CPU @ 3.20GHz [Family 6 Model 58 Stepping 9]

1 CPU, with 4 cores: a quad core CPU.

I'll leave the answer to the question as to why you run what you see to others who run the same combination. I don't, so don't have experience with it.

The schedule allows you to set the start time and end time of the run, which for you is "run between the hours of 17:00 and 08:00".

If you use the schedules in BOINC Manager, set this for the days of the week only, set the weekend values to 00:00 to 24:00

UK Outlook for Saturday 2 Mar 2019 to Saturday 16 Mar 2019:

As we go into March we are likely to continue to see Atlantic frontal systems mainly affecting northern and western parts, but these occasionally getting further east across the rest of the UK as more active features. However, many southern and eastern parts of the UK should remain predominantly settled throughout. Any snow looks most likely to be confined to higher ground in the north, although there remains a small chance of snow to low-levels elsewhere, should a continental easterly airflow develop. Temperatures are likely to remain mild overall, although some shorter cold spells are possible.
More and better offerings to all the deities!

That is, if you get an invite... or we're not sick of seeing each other after a week of seeing each other. :)

Though a bit limiting in which projects can be run.
Or perhaps the projects should invest in a programming API that can be used on these low cost devices, instead of only on power hungry Intel CPUs. :)

Invest in Android devices, my 4 running cost me 2 KWh a year. Even if I manage to add the Samsung Tab A that I just bought, it won't add much in power usage.

It's not that the message isn't there anymore, it's that all news is now gone, probably because the BOINC database is now also off line.

Back from a refreshing swim, which was cut short when the thought train started and I was overwhelmed by emotions. Women. Well, no, one woman. How such lovely creatures can make your head go wonky.

You don't think Seti's outage length can be the source for detailed stories for future men and women?

to use a real wouff hong
What an incoherent page is that, totally not explaining what a Wouff Hong is. Then it's better to read the first link he points at, http://amfone.net/WouffHong/wouff.htm which says: It was in one of these stories, entitled "Rotten QRM", that T.O.M. blasted the gibberish he'd overheard in one particular QSO, citing as an example the words "wouff hong", which apparently was either a concocted abbreviation, or someone's poor attempt at sending.

At the time of the articles T.O.M. did not know what a Wouff-Hong was, but he later adopted it as a disciplinary object with which to both flail bad operating practices and inflict punishment on the perpetrators. It is said that in the following era he had, tongue in cheek, proposed its use as an instrument of torture and discipline, to maintain decency and order in the ham radio community.

I can cancel my return trip to within 24 hours before, and am sure that if it so happens that there are unforeseen circumstances that when I call the ferry company that we can come to an agreement. But thank you very much for the warning.

Then I'm sure that you and all fellow Seti/BOINC idolizers will personally oversee that the weather gods don't wreak havoc in the neighborhood while I am over there. Won't you? :)

Most people don't trickle down to Essex - they RUN AWAY from Essex....
I have no choice: my boat back to Holland starts from there. Plus a day before I have to board the Razorbill 3 in West Mersea to go to the Ross Revenge, of course the real reason for this whole trip... did I just type that out loud? damn!
