Re: Nasty Linux systemd root level security bug revealed and patched

Debian 10 isn't affected? Then no worries here since we're running 10.9 on the server.

Re: Spoiler Tags

Yeah I noticed that as well since I use the dark theme as well. I haven't had a chance to look into how to change it though. IIRC, their wasn't individual "theme" files for each theme, so I think it only uses one file for that. Which means if I change it, it'll change it for all themes. I haven't ha...

Different weight points based on project

So, I've been thinking how to include NCI type projects in the competition. I understand most of those projects are not really valued that high by most crunchers. So, I was thinking of including them (WUProp, iThena) in the competition but only in the marathons. No sprints. However, their point stru...

Web server update/migration

I will be moving this site over to the new server in the next couple days. So if the site doesn't respond, or appears to be offline then give it some time for the DNS to update to the new server or for me to finish transferring it over.

Electric chainsaws aren't as loud as gas ones.

Throw some panels on the shed?
Take out space in your backyard and mount them to poles on the ground? I mean, who needs a yard anyway when you can generate power with it? :lol:

Proof of Ownership

So it seems BOINC has a system setup to prove you're the account owner to external sites.

https://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/ProofOfOwnership

However, I have not been able to locate a project (i've checked around 10 of them) that offers this.

Does anyone know of a project that has this enabled?

Re: Cost of building the site.

Crashtech donated $250. Thanks for helping out.

I made a payment of $2080 so they can begin building the site. The remaining ~$2000 will be due upon completion. They estimated about 2 months to build it.
