Re: Anyone still here? I'm discouraged...

Thanks Dan!

Say, how about you just give me a particle to name and we can forget about all this scoring nonsense?!?!? :lol:

Re: SAY "HI" TO THE COMMUNITY

Let me be the first of the new crop of 2011 dusters to post a Hello! I'm a grandfather (so not young!), love astronomy - and all sciences, really - but space holds a special appeal for me and has all my life. I've been disabled for 16 years due to a broken back and suffer chronic pain from it, so wh...

Re: Thanks, Dan!

Dan; Appreciate your reply and that you are aware of and working on these things, esp since I'm working hard to get my accuracy up and it IS frustrating to see such drops... almost hate to see anyone working on things like this, but scoring and ranking are kind of baby elephants in the room, huh? I ...

Re:Now I'm confused...

Figured I'd keep this discussion going, since I'd like to get my questions/issues out right up front. Guys, what's up with the "scoring"? Seems like I worked hard this last week and clawed my Specificity back up to 99.12 by .02 at a time - took me several days to get there from 99.00%, but then I ma...

(My bad, first image post and I didn't even note the movie ID - plus I don't know how to color it like yours, fjgiie!)

Re:Thanks fjgiie, jdrockster and caprarom

I'm beginning to get a feel for it and have reviewed a lot of the material fjgiie pointed me to, and have begun finding those tiny tracks. That makes a big difference, huh! I did some of the same things already - skimming too fast, esp. when I saw movies that have been covered 400 times or more. But...

Re: Anyone still here?

Thanks for the reply, fjgiie! (I'm part Mohawk - name's a tribute is all, although I know a few Dine) Naw, DON'T pity me, I paid my dues long ago and "coasted" since - broke my back hauling heavy electric cable on the job as a sparks 15 years ago and been laid up since, so this is a perfect thing fo...

Anyone still here? I'm discouraged...

Let me explain - with the Tempel maneuver the other day, I did some exploring and found Stardust@Home, so I trained, registered, and began dusting - but have TERRIBLE S/S stats also (99% / 62% or so!), possibly because I wasn't clear enough on the finer points, maybe because I've focused on the more...
