i'm running the beta, and it seems to be okay apart from that one failed job during the changeover. that job is back in the queue now, so no big deal. one of theses days i may remember to uncheck that beta box.
there may be some changes to the help>usage text, but i couldn't swear to that.
the main changes i have noticed are in the setup control panel.

the beta versions have not been without incident in the past, but usually nothing too serious.
and as to the scheduler, i need a 'run 24/7' option before it is useful to me

i am not running beta yet.You know dog spelled backwards is god.....
coincidence ..... i think not.

it seems to have extra options listed in the help>usage section to do with offline crunching.
were these commands there already?

Mmm. 50,000 points in 5 days. Not a bad start - plenty of room for improvement, but is shows willing and potential....

So Doddsy is swingin in the slammer. They tried to get finger prints, but the bandaid was in the way.
Edit: I'm potentially willing to open an online swingset store and Doddsy can be my installation specialist

'Bout darn time I got one CPU-year.
I'm not running beta since if a problem arises I probably won't know how to fix it. Plus I don't have a 2,000 CPU rating, so uploaded jobs are fewer and further between than other people, and I'd rather not lose my jobs.

And now for something completely different - have you guys got a holiday tomorrow? (Ascension Day, something to do with conquering Mount Everest)
May 4th, 2005, 01:46 PM #19
Wow you are right:
The Ascension of the Lord: Holy Day of Obligation... see exeptions below
All US ecclesiastical provinces, with the exeption of Boston, Hartford, New York, Newark, Philadelphia, Washington, Atlanta, and the state of Nebraska, have transferred the celebration of the Solemnity of the Ascension to the 7th Sunday of Easter, May 8. If transferred, Thursday, May 5, is observed as an Easter weekday.
I don't get off for it.

(But if it's any consolation, as a self-nominated mature citizen, I'm off anyway...)
