Shall we start again? Is there someone masquerading with an alias account to spam these threads as he did in SETI, and now trying the same tricks here to fool us in Milkyway with a 'spy' account? Who's on first?...


Watt's on first. Who's on second.

Yes enthralling indeed, demanding to be solved!


Could we leave the drama back over at SETI? Please?

Some people can't Brian. They'll create the drama over here for the same reason they created the drama over at seti.

Oh, come on now, what wrong with a little lighthearted entertainment here?
Got to be better than the full-blown operas that Brian always indulges himself in.

Brian does Opera?


  • Takes at least 2 hrs to get through
  • Makes you wonder why you started it
  • Self-important characters
  • Assasinations


Yes, looks like most of his posts ;)

This isn't drama. This is an action packed adventure. It may turn out to be a musical.

Let me know when it hits Broadway. :P

It's already a pantomime. "someone said I was a spy", who may well have dressed up in a sweetie wrappers. Extraordinary action for a panto!

I thought it was just a mime doing his invisible wall trick.

Don't know about a wall, but he made a recent post here disappear. This needs to be exposed for what it is!

One must be careful lest be cited for indecent exposure.

There may be a breakthrough. Someone has PM'd me and wishes to expose the person ... (drum roll) ... who did it.

There will be no exposure until The Sun sign the contract.

I'm still trying to get the hyper threaded abacus to work. Sharing beads is proving to be a bottleneck. I think I'll paint them blue and puce. That may not increase my credits, but it will certainly be entertaining :)



Erk, I dont have enough fingers for HT :(

What else could go wrong?

We lose all our credits.

and then it cascades into all other projects ultimately bringing down the internet, satellite radio, and Major League Baseball.

Back to stone tablets and a chizel. tink..tink..tink..

And the abacus. All credits will be calculated by the projects abacus.

I've actually been working on an abacus version of the application. Expect them to mail out for v0.19

Right on. I'll optimize it by taking off a few beads.

Nah, use grease to make em move faster.

Well I was thinking of using smooth glass instead of wooden beads. I promise not to drop them.

How about this for the next version of MW?

Oh man... that's exactly what I was putting together (except mine used glass). I should have patented it before you posted that pic.

Cant do floating-point arithmetic with glass beads, they always sink down the rods. I tried already.

Mine are hollow beads filled with hydrogen. No smoking allowed. Not recommended for overclocked systems.

Not suitable for flame posts.

Man, I dono why people decide to flame our forums while we're trying to get the server working again :P Talk about bad timing, lol.

In the BOINC industry it's called stress testing. Some stress more than others.


They do, dont they...
