Yea mike047's a really good guy! I think he was fixing to retire... I believe he had been out of work for awhile and waiting on his retirement. I hope everything is well with him!
Last I hear he was base jumping with the last base jumpers.
I'm down an E6600 today.. I've got the OS reinstalled hopefully I can get it back up and crunching Monday!
EDIT: Not retire from WCG, but I do remember him say he was going to cut back a bit.
