    Sure was :respect: :respect: :toast:

    We showed that we could all unite for a team member undergoing hardships, and that we crunch for the cause and each other, not the points

    Sorry my E8400 @ 4Ghz on the other end of the house had restarted and I didn't notice. I've got it back up and crunching 100% :toast: I'll get stan a few more points! :toast:

    Right now 29 crunching for me and 1 for stanley. But Total some where between 40 to 45, but I'm only crunching right now on the 30. I may start a few more crunching as it gets cooler. :toast: I'll try and get a thread count together some time this weekend or next week. Last time i counted i was around 54 true threads with around 8 HT threads. I've added a few quads and a x6 and a i7 since then. :toast:

    :respect::respect:

    I have 11 threads in my room, then the X4 955, should be getting 4 more going in the way of a Q6600, and hopefully about half a dozen from work. So nowhere near what you're doing, but still not bad IMO :D

    I doubt it. If it was him he likely wouldn't bail on us like he did without giving an update.

    I have his info and tried checking into some Canadian Obituary sites with no luck. I have his old address so if any of our Canadian brothers would like to do some P.I. work around the Montreal area PM me.

    ^ that would be awesome! :rockout:
    But as stated, I doubt he would bail on us like that if he was still to be around. Unless he's in a condition where he cannot use a computer. Which that would still be pretty bad. :(

    This is absolutely the worst part of being an old member. He would be the third that I remember this early in the AM that has "left" I remember these guys posting EVERYDAY laughing helping screenshots. Not a problem at all. It really breaks my heart you know? I dont have family you guys have been my family for YEARS. Iv shared words psus, TIM, and reboots with these guys. Sometimes I think about it and I dont really know how I should feel about it ya know? I mean I like to think this community is different. To me you guys are more than just avatars. Your my main guys ya know? I have some of you guys in my cell phone as your SNs and when I refer to you for example when iv delt with a problem I often get were did you learn that? A friend of mine had the same issue. which is usually a referer to one of you. Its just a shame really. It honestly makes me feel bad. I stare at the OP or read some of the posts and just remember chatting over a sound issue or on IM because of an immediate problem. "Hey sol are you their?" "I have an issue with a 8800 with a voltage problem." Not just that but from someone whos been here like 7 years these guys were legends. Iv worked with stanhemi 1.0.1 trying to figure out folding configurations back when having a DVI adapter was the only way to make phantom screens and I asked him if he would stickie my guide. That was all a long time ago unfortunetely but TPU changes alot. I just wish maybe once in awhile some people were still around. I dont mind the new guys. but well im just set in how I want to remember TPU I guess.


    everyone logs out eventually right?
