Oh, yeah, THAT lasts forever... rolleyes.gif tongue.gif . My warranty ran out when I turned 30, and the extension was definitely gone at 40...

Not only that, he doesn't have kids yet. He has approximately eleventeen times the 'free' time that us old breeders have.

It's a good point about the UPS arrangements. The power issue could have been related to today's freak storms -- I heard on the radio that there was actually a tornado east of here, which is practically unheard of. In honor of the polar landing, it actually hailed at JPL today -- I've got pics to post later. After waiting out the hail I drove out of a thundery downpour across the valley to cloudless skies and fire-tinder-dry landscape at home.

Would you believe two tornadoes that skirted the south edge of my USAF Reserve base? Article & a video of one of them:

http://www.bestsyndication.com/?q=20080522...reno_valley.htm

No deaths or serious injuries, thankfully.

This is unusual in the extreme. I read somewhere that on the average everywhere in the US gets hit by a tornado at least once every 200 years...guess we got "lucky".

EDIT: An unfortunate correction: a trucker was in fact seriously hurt when one of the twisters mangled his rig. The storms also blew several railroad cargo cars off of their tracks. These would seem to have been at least F2 tornadoes. Heads up: possibly more of the same sort of weather today.

Just emphasizing that the new server switch couldn't have been better timed cool.gif
Moreover, with the Phoenix landing, I've never seen so many "Junior Members" online...

Doug, any idea how the Phoenix landing affected the number of newly registered members on UMSF?

Wondering that myself; we got 124 people on right now as I write this (0845 PDT)...REALLY high for a Monday morning, even if it is a US & UK holiday.

160 people right now. No doubt that we would have been knocked-out without this server switch.
Doug, do you have any statistics to share?

I'll give it a day or two, and then show the build-up, and following fall off smile.gif

One thing I will say - the usual number of posts per day is about 30-60. Yesterday was 267 and today, so far, is 547. Today is the busiest UMSF day ever, yesterday the 4th. Previously is was Jan 19th 2006.

What time is the "day" cutoff? 12:00 UT? I was a bit shocked by 547 since from my perspective its 10:00 am on a holiday here ohmy.gif

If Occam had heard my theory, things would be very different now.

Forum time is BST (so 1810 right now ) - but the raw server stats will be PST.

Speaking of time zones, I've noticed a problem that I didn't have before the server switch, so I suppose this is the best place to post about it.

It's certainly not a big deal, but for some odd reason the 'board time' keeps jumping backwards and forwards an hour. For instance, Doug's post right above this one currently says "12:10PM." But if I were to navigate away from the site and then come back it might say "11:10AM." Rinse and repeat and it's back to "12:10PM." This occurs not only within the post itself but also on the main board page.

I've cleared my cookies but the problem persists. Not sure there's anything else I can do on my end. But like I said, it's nothing but a very minor inconvenience. Anyone else have this issue?

Oh... I'm using Firefox.

Edit :: Sure enough, as soon as I post about it I found a fix. The problem was the auto-DST setting. Turned it off and all is fine now.

Indeed !
I can see that there are not too many hits from France but we've got the record of the number of pages per visit. This must be because of the 35 work hours per week tongue.gif
I guess we'll go up again when we'll have sample analysis results, full pano, not talking about other discoveries...
Did I read right, 24% more people here ?

Week 21 on '08 saw 39 registrations.

That's a record, beating 24 from Nov '05. (if you ignore the week that got 123 new regs because I accidentally turned off forum visibility to non members)
