Dude...IVe been a few weeks without mine and no problems. Of course, I have a Ps3 and a 360 to take my mind off it. HDTV with HD Satellite and the like. Plus, its nice outside, can go fishing, swimming, boating, playing BB (base and basket) etc. Shouldnt be hard for me, but Ill be putting my new AT8 MOBO in, Opty 165 and 2gb Gskill memory.

I might be able to do it. I think I might have gone one day before with out my pc. I have a new dual sport motorcycle to ride (appox. 700 ,miles on it and they are all mine) and the weather is supposed to be good. So I will be out revving my Suzuki DRZ 400S around the Sierrra Nevada mountains and leaving my Antec NSK1300 turned off.

When the organisers of said experiment/whatnot pay for a dedicated server for me, then maybe. Until then, my workstation is going to continue to double as a server.

PS while you're buying me a server, throw in a few interesting books to occupy me with.

K thnx :rolleyes:.

I'm going to cheat a bit - on saturday I'm going to buy parts - but with someone else so its technically nothing to do with my pc, and it won't even be fabricated, but I can still get my fix:cool:

kakaka that's what I'm talking 'bout! Anyway, I believe:
* 8 outta 10 of us won't be able to do it
* 2 will be able to do it BUT just for ONE day! unless his comp dies after being turned off LOL

That's all I gotta say. Myself will leave it on no matter what! even the president come to my house I'm just gonna say: "sorry sir my life depends on it :slap: "
