Its been hot and humid and a few drops of rain. Too hot to run the farm. Today was a bit of a break in the weather so I have most of the farm running. The rest of this week is looking like it will be hot and humid so I don't expect to get much work done.

Project news - Seti
The project increased the allowed number of work units per computer. That promptly blew out the size of the database with the number of work units "out in the field". Last week they limited the result creation rate in order to get it back down in size. The project needs to fit the entire database table into memory and the machine already has the maximum amount of memory that it can hold. They resized the table last week but we still seem to have issues getting work.

In addition to database issues Seti@home did a fund raiser to replace the 120 x 2TB disk drives with 26 x 16TB disk drives (two are spares). It was supposed to run for 2 weeks but met its target in the first week.
