thanks, it works now. tar is fine, but tar.tar is just redundant. but i can handle that, this much is true.

of course i just switched back to kubuntu from debian and installed boinc 6.4.3, so that may have an impact.

Chapter 2:
Then, one day, someone invented a steam shovel. It could do the work of 100 men. It cost money to design, build, and test the steam shovel but the workers all felt that even though they had risked nothing themselves, they deserved the same share as the people who took the risks in creating the steam shovel. Soon, a union was formed and everyone in the entire town was paid the same wages. All was well again. For a while...

Making the wages the same created slackers because people who used to work harder now did just enough to get by since there is no longer a reward to work harder. Overall production of the town dropped. Some were satisfied and stayed while others left the town to find better work elsewhere. That meant that those who had been doing less work all around needed to work harder to make up the difference. That wasn't in their nature though, so they left as well. Production dropped even more. Now, Happyville is renamed GhostTown. Eventually, the mayor was the only one living there. He sits on a street corner attempting to get tourists to stop and take a tour of the once happy town. The tourists are former residents and have no interest. Eventually, the mayor retires, moves to Florida, and lives off the tax dollars paid by the people who left the town to earn a better living. But that's a whole other story.


This is fun, we should write a whole novel out of useless and flawed metaphors. allow me to continue:

Chapter 3

The Steam Machine is now only operated by the Mayor, who came back from Florida because of all the hard sunshine that was wreaking havoc on his soft, delicate skin, only used to the gentle light of computer monitors. Meanwhile, in a neighboring town, someone else builds a new, superior machine and brings it to GhostTown, formerly known as Happyville.

The mayor is quite astonished at the energy savings and robustness of the new machine, and thanks heartily the engineer, naming him Citizen of Honor. Since the new, shiny machine does all the work, the mayor and the engineer have all of their time on their hands to rebuild Happyville.

They begin of course with the casino, and tourists abound again in the new Happyville. Then the bankers get interested in this new city where hotels are being built and the service economy is booming.

Prosperity comes again to Happyville, and all seems well for the mayor. But then, tragedy struck, like the hard fist of a blacksmith used to mold metal at the end of its pitiless hammer. Oh, the irony! While the city gained its power and its wealth from harvesting the soil, little did the mayor know that its doom would rain down from the heavens! An asteroid, unknown to science, hurling through space, ends its infernal course by hammering and annihilating the very machine that saved happyville.

The mayor is dismayed, but finds out that the service economy, and the organized crime that came along with the casinos, are sufficient to sustain Happyville's continued growth and appeal. To thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster for this fortunate turn of events, the mayor builds churches and held sacrifices. Happyville, yet again, prevails.

Post:
new work is coming through. i don't think they're in a hurry to release the new app, since the unofficial optimized one is out: they better take this opportunity of a 'hybrid' population to anticipate the server load/bandwidth when everybody will use a fast app. these last days showed it's not a completely smooth transition, WUs being computed faster than they are generated!
let them balance things out, then focus on basically making the fast app official. it's not a race, there's no deadline.
