      We're looking for a new venue, too. Possibly one of the local tech companies that uses and contributes to GNU/Linux and #FreeSoftware

      I know... The founder and primary organizer Colin Mills @_c_jm@twitter.com is a student at Conestoga College so we were holding the event there.

      93.6% in fact. I'm having a 50% probability of errors while mathing today.

      If you've got a 6.4% probability to miss in all three turns, then for the next three turns I would expect a 93% probability of getting at least one hit -- much higher than the probability of missing three turns in a row again!

      Poor you. I haven't needed to touch ArcServe in over a decade, back on Novell Netware systems. Whenever there was a problem, ArcServe was always a contributor, somehow.
