    I plan to Donate a small amount, but I can't get a 3rd PC at home now, I do not have the place for it. I will let someone else crunch with it :) but I will dedicate a computer for cure cancer.

    F*ck cancer!

    P.S. Norton PM me what I need to do :)

    @Norton: you mentioned that you still need could use "additional parts, shipping help, a few $$$, games, software, just about anything will help out".
    Can you elaborate? What type of software...what kind of additional parts...how do you want games, as Steam codes?

    Since it's not such a time deadline, per RCoon earlier, I'm sure a few of us would love to help some more if you can give a better picture? Thanks!

    On my phone atm so posting is a little rough for me (small screen/big fingers). If we continue to get more donations we can upgrade the cpu(s), add on a nice kb and mouse, etc...

    Any other ideas? Post them up :)

    Random pages on TPU get blocked at work because of pornography, such as the Sexy Hardware Pics forums :laugh:

    It might be worth giving a few dollars to the cruncher, after all, they are paying the electricity bills.

    Anyone offering monetary donations that haven't already sent it to Norton via PayPal, his laptop is slightly borked, so PM me for his PP address (we may as well keep him as the bank on this one) and I'll send you his email address for you to make your donations.

    I still plan to test my 7770 for stability. They have 1 CF finger IIRC so you guys could dump it in one of the PCs. I am away from my house at the moment though so it will be 2-3 days at least. :/
    7770's are really efficient though, mine pushed 40k ppd while using less than 80w back on 14.1 drivers.

    YOU CAN HAVE MY AX




    All joking aside I have something else planned for a Kreij tribute. Just need to scrap together some funds. Its something he asked me to do for TPU incase he passed. Now the fucker is dead I have to make good on my word. Hes trolling me from beyond!

    I just have to wait for the right time and placement.

    I was thinking to post the worklog in this thread, afterall the case is meant to be the Kreij memorial and is work in tpu and is fight agains the cancer. I see no reason to make a single thread just to show the Kreij case.

    I agree- we are in the Project logs section now anyway. I have the 2nd post in the thread reserved so I will plan on putting links to your posts in the thread there for easy reference :)

    Will be putting links to the other build by @BarbaricSoul there as well

    Thanks again everyone! :toast:
