1) Message boards : Number crunching : Fluctuating readings from my detector this week (Message 1156)
Posted 2775 days ago by Profile computerguy09
Just restarted my system this week due to some driver issues. The detector, which is usually muted, started making lots of clicks until the preferences got downloaded again.

I was wondering why, when I realized that I had a medical test today that injected me with slightly radioactive "stuff".

So any time I'm in the office and near the detector, the readings will go off the charts. Don't worry, the nurse said it would go away after a few days.

I did notice that if I went to the other side of the room, the detector got MUCH quieter...

Just thought I'd give you fair warning about this, just in case someone notices.

re: map updating

Once you return a workunit, you need to manually update your location on the map here on the website.

Here's the instructions that I used to move my location:

Click Your Account -> View Computers -> Details, scroll down to see the map. Your computer will be an icon with a different color (orange? ) than the other computers and the icon will be located in Poland, I think. Drag the icon to your location, zoom in on the map to place the icon on your exact location or somewhere near your location. Then click the Add Sensor button below the map.

Getting ready to connect it up...

Paypal will take it's fee no matter what now, credit card or not, on both personal and business accounts.

It's 2.9% on the total amount + $0.30.

Of course, you can mark it as a gift, and if it comes from your Paypal balance or your checking account, they may not charge the fee, but technically you are lying if you are purchasing something like this...

It's 3.9% + $.30 if it's international.

Thanks for doing this Keith.

Sounds good, Keith.

A suggestion - hopefully you'll put a piece of tape over each end and the "self sealing" flap on those Priority Mail boxes.

I have shipped out easily a hundred or more, and found that the seal doesn't always hold that well. So to be safe, when I put the label on the outside, I make sure the tape covers the end of the flap to keep it closed.

Looking forward to getting a detector!

If we get a delay, I'm in a similar situation. I go on vacation mid-February for a week to two weeks.

Such is life...
