Default General Status???

What's happening???

I know that 5,317- is being done and that 6,283- is in LA.
What's their status? What's next?

Sir:

General Status is in (the) Looe.
We expect him to return from Cornwall within the fortnight.
I have referred your inquiry to Colonel Korn.

Officer of the Day,
Lieutenant Write-on-Thyme

As mentioned above,

The sieving on 6,283- has completed. Paul is on vacation, but we expect that he will continue the post-processing next week.

5,317- is proceeding at a reasonable rate. We are presently getting 20% more contributions on the weekends than we get during the middle of the week.

We have currently done about 25% of the sieving that I expect to be required.

The entire project may have to "shut down" for a week or so while I vacation in Alaska in August unless I can arrange to either have someone manage a project change on the servers or otherwise set up alternatives.

I wonder why that is? I would expect increases to come from people who are at work, then less when they turn their computer off at the end of the day.

Many people leave their machines on 24/7 and so get more work done when they are not being used as it were.
