They causes 3 on my 7 incorrect answers and "Moe" is really annoying me.
What's really sad here is that most of us know exactly which one is Moe.

This is one for Wikipedia, don't you think?

Re: Javascript Errors

Sometimes a movie produces javascript errors when loading. Numerous popoups begin to appear. I click the OK button to clear each one but sometimes I am not paying close attention and keep clicking, resulting in a 'track' event by accident. The movie below is one such case. Please clear this as a tr...

http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/myevents_viewer.php?id=9471219V1 - it's pretty obvious. Hmm... it'll be interesting to see what comes of this one. It looks to me like a Bad Focus -- see that other speck just next to the circular one? It's barely in focus at the bottom of the focus bar. Inter...

I don't believe this is a calibration movie, as they are supposed to be inaccessible after the fact. If you move your focus bar down to the very bottom of the bar, two inclusions come into view. One is slightly down-left of center, and the other is nearly to the left-hand edge, slightly out of focus...

Same thing happened to me.

If you happen to peg one of the calibration movies causing it, could you post it? I couldn't find it again.

Thanks!

Is there any way to find out if you were the first to spot a particle if you didn't check your events at the time or you later forgot? Hrmm... I'm not sure it's possible without having them actually check the time/date of your mouse click. I suppose that, barring a direct response, the way to tell ...

a shallow lateral track at the very top? you can see how it moves as the focus changes.. http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/myevents_viewer.php?id=5492352V1 ...but only 8 other people have flagged it out of 134!

If you're the first, and if there's an interstellar particle at the end of the track, you get to give it a name.

Pretty cool, neh?

All I want is the blue focus bars that we move the mouse over, to be wider. I like to move the focus up and down, up and down, to sort of animate the movie and of course I'm staring at the movie during this and not at the focus bars so the cursor often slips off to the left or right.
