warning: back up your flock

With the conception of sheep 202.99982, the flock is rapidly approaching unknown territory: the file format only supports 5 digits so sheep 100000 will roll over to 00000. The previous record was generation 198 which lasted until sheep 198.31923.

It's possible the server or your client will crash, possibly resulting in all your sheep being deleted. So now would be a good time for backups :) i've slowed the generation way down to give a chance for word about this to get out. if all goes as planned you won't even notice that anything happened but you never know... my fingers are crossed!

Does that mean 203 is nigh? Posted by: Kat at October 9, 2007 07:06 AM
I'm new to this... Where are my sheep residing? The only thing in my /System32/electricsheep-cache/mpeg folder are the 40 sheep I downloaded from a sheep pack. However, BitTorrent has been downloading sheep while the saver has been running, and according to the info I get when I press "s", I have 185 sheep. It definitely seems like more than 40 are running. Where are my extra sheep? Posted by: CG at November 7, 2007 05:48 PM
