    You know.....I wouldn't even say now because my better judgment got the best of me:rolleyes:.


    Just like loonym said, locking the WCG thread (I have an idea why) is not a good way to recruit/attract potential members:banghead:

    Yeah, I've had no problem accessing the WCG section at RRR. I took a peak over there yesterday to see if there was any TPU smack going on. Not surprisingly, there was none. It's funny how the smack stops when you get steamrolled. :laugh: B@llz0r, looks like you guys need to step it up. From what I'm seeing around here, recruitment is increasing, and members are adding cores. I for one will be adding 2 Core i7 rigs by the end of this week. :rockout:

    I've got a Gigabyte UD5 and UD3R on benches waiting for a new DO and CO to get here on Thursday or Friday. I've yet to try Win 7, but I guess now is as good a time as any. :D

    they do indeed run to 2010. I have used windows 7 since the first beta version came out, and i havent used anything else since, I love it. However I have not tried RC1 yet.

    Some information on Win 7
    Windows will notify you that the expiration process is beginning and two weeks later your PC will begin shutting down every two hours. The Beta expires on August 1, 2009, and bi-hourly shutdowns will begin July 1, 2009. The RC will expire June 1, 2010, and the bi-hourly shutdowns will begin on March 1, 2010. In both cases, you’ll need to rebuild your test PC to replace the OS and reinstall all your programs and data

    Reading this thread has just convinced me to find the time to join up and get crunching, I so like healthy competition, in fact, I like un-healthy competition too! ....of course the only real way to crunch is with style, something we here have in abundance :D
