Greetings Grant. Though your idea could benefit heavy duty dusters, I believe there are a few reasons why the files are not compressed and sent in batches as you mentioned; Firstly, the individual frames are only about 10k on average (though at 40 frames per movie, that can add up quickly!)- but any...

Hi Howie. I remember this before as well. Remember that each movie covers much less than a freckle, and any imperfection as big as a quarter will result in many movies that are out of focus.

What do you think?

Hi X.

Are you dusting with multiple windows?
I came across this problem on a couple of occasions and was able to get around it by logging one window out and then logging back in again.

Re: Another computer program searcher

It appears as though there's another program besides 'Cerealkiller' posing as a Stardust search volunteer ['SkyNetV4'], able to 'search' 24-7. It's too bad it doesn't realize that, while it may be very prolific @ running up high totals of identified calibration movies [out-doing real people], it wi...

There is no way to view a calibration movie without the entire URL from that page (the movie number will only bring up the real movie with that id).
