    I've only had the privilege (lol) to be on perc once in my life so far. It was after a car accident (in 2000). I don't recall much from the month or so I was on perc w/bed rest. The GF at the time said I'd be out cold for 12hrs about 15mins after taking one. Yet I would have bet money on the fact that I was up for the whole day, lol.

    :laugh: i don't remember most of last year that is when i was hitting the pills big time. Now the only reason i am on anything is for the pain and i don't abuse them like that anymore. When my foot is healed i am not touching them again till i need they for pain.I don't want to be on them again i like to know what i am doing :roll:

    I found out i had sex with my GF's best friend a few times when i was on them...that didn't go over so good :(

    Along with my Father in law dying of pancreatic cancer (3-6 months to live), I just found out this morning that my childhood best friend's mom died this morning of breast cancer. Ughhh. Another daily reminder of why we crunch.

    Yup cancer is everywhere. Lady friend of mine just had a baby born with Leukemia. Friends father just came down with prostate cancer. I just wish crunching could find ways to prevent it as well. Cancer is teh suxx.

    I just don't see the point in it.I'm losing the desire for it. After i get the X2 4200+ up i'm done

    I think 5 rigs is a good number to stop at

    :confused: that confused me...
    I'm done adding rigs i think i am going to just start upgrading them as possible or just keep things how they are now :ohwell:

    don't worry after i get everything 24/7 and the last rig running i think i will be a worthy opponent or atleast i hope.

    Im actually thinking I am going to downgrade WCG1 to an Athlon II X4 630. It used to be my HTPC but I have not used it for at least two months except to check for EUE and WCG Network connectivity. A PII seems like overkill for that, no?

    the random cores
