It's been a while since I've updated you all as to what's going on in my life on this side of the Folding world, and it's been absolutely crazy.
 
First off, and the most minor of it - Last month, a change was made to how Stanford presents the stats flat files. This caused my system to burp a little bit and I lost some data, but not much.  Basically, it exposed a touch of over active error checking I had built in that triggered an un-needed clean up that prevented one file from being saved for a couple of days.
They also changed the internal time-stamp to Central time so the system was saving to file names that were 2 hours off. No major biggie, just a little tweak and I'm back to saving the hourly stats.
 
The BIGGIE - We're moving, suddenly and expensively. My wife's health has been in slow decline due to chronic illnesses related to soft tissue inflammation that we now believe is due to long term exposure to an environmental contaminant that's native to where we live, and it's finally reached the point that we no longer have a choice and we're moving to where she last felt healthy: St Augustine, Florida.
 
As such, I'm finishing my last week of worth and we're hitting the road in 10 days.
This means a couple of things - I'll be going offline for a while as our internet access on the other side of the trip is totally up in the air. I won't have the ability to run the stats collection 24/7 until we get set up on that side, but I will be trying to get my laptop set up at least once a day to grab a few hours of stats at each hotel stay on the way, so it won't be a complete loss of data. I mostly bring this up in case there are any issues with stats that anyone needs me to do spot checking on as I've done from time to time.
 
Secondly, it means that we're going to be hurting financially for a little while, so I may not be able to get back up and folding for a bit - I will try to get my boxes set up in time to be folding in August, but my work folders that I've been allowed to run all hours of the day are being shut down on Friday afternoon. On the OTHER hand, we're moving to an area where the cost of electricity is a fraction of what we pay here in Maine.
 
So, I guess that's the update - We're stressed between wrapping up our local affairs and packing, and next week will be 100% focus on the finish/starting to load the uhaul, but I'll try to check in to answer any questions you all may have.

I'll talk to you later! Take care of each other!

    ^^ That's what I thought of reading thread title. Like others have said, I hope your wife feels much better! That's quite a move. Sorry to hear she is having issues. Got to take care of the ones that take care of us. I hope you like it as well Droug. Hope everything goes smoothly on the move and after. Take care buddy! 
     
    EDIT: If I knew what I was doing, I would offer to keep stats. But I am Stew Pids.
