Okay world, it's over now. I've done all you wanted me to do, my foot hurts like hell again. Hope you're happy, as the rest of the week I'm a couch-potato, watching Ghost Adventures, with my foot up as the doc and physio have ordered. (read: world == mom 🙄)

For the next three weeks I'll be as immobile as possible. The calcaneal spur pain has increased a hundredfold, I have pain even at night.

So this morning I asked my physician to inject me with corticosteroids, which he did. The pain has receded enormously, but I am still advised by both my physician and my fysiotherapist to take total rest, stay off my foot for as much as possible.

I even got one crutch, to help get around the house.

So fingers crossed.
At least it takes my thoughts away from Isa (which is a totally different story, one I won't go into here).

That Richard Haselgrove keeps emailing me with all these new email addresses and mysterious, possibly nefarious links. "I thought it was something you would want to see"... I'm sure it's not. 😜

Someone forgot that these sites don't route through that other core router? Or was it too much traffic?

Peaceful day. Banished a spammer and the site went down. Maybe it was his wrath. 😆

Grumble: it took 4 normal emails and one nasty email to get the watch maker servicing my Seiko 6105-8009t (8110) to react to me and send it back. I'd wanted to give it some TLC, it being such an old watch and all. It's in fine running condition, just that the sapphire is a bit scratched and the number plate has some mold.

Glory: just looked at this watch's price asked on eBay. Up to €3,500!
Uhm, you know what? I'll leave it in the condition it's in, as it's only going to be worth more. Even broken ones run for up to €2,000!

Seiko released a limited edition reissued version this year that went for $4,250.-

If the project isn't down (it isn't) it'll be firewall settings. Check in the firewall settings that BOINC (boinc.exe) is allowed to contact the internet on TCP ports 80 and 443.

Überprüfen Sie in den Firewall-Einstellungen, ob BOINC (boinc.exe) über die TCP-Ports 80 und 443 eine Verbindung zum Internet herstellen darf.

And the chances she's coming along have plummeted to zero. I have retracted my invitation. She's broken my trust.

Daily visits to Mr. Simms? 😂

But glad for you, last time around you looked a little thin.

Lost 22 kilos since I changed my diet end of March 2019. Been mostly using carbohydrate-poor vegetables only. Do still have carbo days and days with meat, but 75% of the diet was pure veg, with a little fat. And walking. 5 kilometers per day.

Haven't walked that far in two weeks due to an infection under my heel (calcaneal spur) that started when I reached 135 kilos. But am now 120 kilos and feeling very fit. Only 20 more to go. 😍

Find the Activity menu and check that CPU is also set to "Run based on preferences". For when it's set to Run always it will ignore those preferences.

Yes... But for:

According to Einstein's theory of general relativity, massive objects warp the spacetime around them, and the effect a warp has on objects is what we call gravity. So, locally, spacetime is curved around every object with mass.

And

In physics, spacetime is any mathematical model that fuses the three dimensions of space and the one dimension of time into a single four-dimensional continuum. Spacetime diagrams can be used to visualize relativistic effects such as why different observers perceive where and when events occur differently.

Basically, a time warp is some phenomenon that changes the flow of time by speeding it up or making it run more slowly. Therefore a spacetime lag warp is double. E=mc² x mc² ?

Perhaps they forgot. 😋 Does it need a human to set the back ups in motion, or is it handled by a script?

Possibilities:
- it's not Tuesday
- it's vacation for everyone including the script
- they changed the hardware and now can do backups on the fly
- we found ET
- there's nothing to back up
- they heard of the hair burning and moon howling and didn't want any of that again

Post:
If version.h had 7.15.0, then you didn't download v7.16.1
I did a complete new download of branch 7.16 last night and also got 7.15.0 in version.h

It did update version.h to yesterday's date and time of update. So this seems to be hit & miss. Or 7.16.1 isn't in the 7.16 branch

Post:
Now, the thing of course is that one can name any BOINC version 7.15.0 by adjusting the corresponding values in version.h, just as you can name them 1.0.0, or 100.91.23, or 7.16.2

It may matter to schedulers, if they check for old version numbers, but in general a 7.15.0 version can have been built from any source code, not necessarily from the 7.16 branch.

Which reminds me, let me go get that one.

It's not a foul stench, it's like the smell of daisies combined with roses and crystal meth. Hmmmm.

Edit: don't do drugs people! the above was just a joke.
