I find it keeps me focused. Pick up the stone; throw the stone; run to the stone; redo from start.

Great documentation!

FWIW I've done MIL-SPEC avionics R&D tech_docs; I appreciate what it takes to put something like this together. (I say I'm compulsive. *grin*)

cheers

The rank page has changed, but it is definitely not correct.

Evidently it's amuck.

I checked Rank page lastnight. Someone was 277 but I wasn't there even though I had 307. This morning I checked; someone with 279 is there, and 280, but I'm not ... with 352. So it's not /off/, but it's definitely not right.

10 hours later: someone with 279 is on the list, but my 352 didn't get me in. So the rank page is totally amuck. ---- i think it was actually re-sorting about every 5 minutes... but i see your point. I hope you realize that I saw yours ... hadn't intended to be rude. Know what? Given the horsepower ...

my guess is that the stardust team decided that one way to speed up the servers is to have them re-sort the standings less often. i'm thinking it'll do a re-sort at midnight PDT... perhaps. ~peter heh ... if 1ce every 30 minutes strains the system. *snort* thanks ^5 p.s. I'm trying real hard not to...

Rank ... lag?

I realize that rankings are all jumbled right now but with FireFox's nice new "highlight all instances" search feature it's not hard to find things. I'm up to 306 / 92% and wanted to save the Top 100 page (since no Certs are available). No joy! Perhaps (disregarding scramble) the Ranks page could ha...

Re: exactly

Because of this issue I seem to click "bad focus" for up to 20% of all the samples, (on top of the more blatant bad focus cases). That's gotta be the right attitude; if we captured a teeny wee speck of something special and brought it safe all the way back to the lab, it'd be a shame to lose it cuz...

I think staff should reply to this ...

Nothing like a rumour that we're being treated like mushrooms to drain the fun out of things.

Addendum : I think I've located my systemic error. I gave my most recent movie a triple-close look and I spotted a teeny track ... 5 microns? less? Distinct, and correct, and small ! Wow ...
