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.
