    Not only did I screw up my original theory, you come along and show me that even the original flawed thought was wrong!

    So, in so many words, you managed to prove what I deserve to be called! :wtf:

    Meanwhile, I spent way too much time transcoding videos[1] today to get a shot at pie. Aww shuks. I was really looking forward to it. No matter - gonna get pie sooner or later MUHAHAHA.

    [1]I am now doing some weekly game-related [video] reviews and stuff for this Youtube gaming channel. I might even get paid for that, too. I am super anxious - never done anything like that before. Hope I don't suck too hard, lol. Aww well...

    I just had a funny thought... Remember when Ion used to get about TRWOV's ppd and we thought it was a lot.

    Not really, my 4P setup does about 26k PPD or so. Buck's do better, since they're 48c ones.

    Kai's gonna have Cherry tonight, as my Opty6176 rig crashed about 7 hrs ago. Just got her re-started. Some of these battles for Cherry are real nailbiter's.;)

    Nailbiters? Surely you jest. I have to say, personally, I truly enjoy the back and forth. Kai owned that spot for a long time, seemingly, and it became a little mundane. Since you joined the fray, well, it's been anything but mundane!

    I know I am not alone when I say, Thanks! Not just for giving Kai a running mate, but for contributing in such a huge way! It may be two years out, gotta finish school and make some real money, again, and I am gonna get me a brand, spanking, new server board and load it up with the meanest CPU's I can!

    Not because I need to dominate pie but, because I want to bring this team even closer to the top of the world standings!!

    I know, as most of you do, this team is the best! I want to, not necessarily prove it but, show how much we rock. :rockout:

    Makes me wonder how awesome of a board I can run, in two years time?

    Anyways, Cheers! To my team, our Team, TPU!!!

    Absolutely, I've loved having some very serious competition for the cherry pie. Although at this point I don't have any more equipment "on reserve" to throw in and beat out Buck, it's still exciting seeing the two of us duke it out every day. Definitely more interesting, even the days that I lose :)

    Buck, do you think that this is a result of over-ambitious OCing?

    Looks like you now have an Athon64x2. When did you score that? I have one, also. Unfortunately, it is storage until I find my own place again. :ohwell:

    I was worth about a few points in it's short crunching life, HDD died then, my homelessness started, for real.

    Spent 8 days living outdoors, by the river being chased around by cops, 'Camping' is the slang, before a friend told me about the DECENT shelter I now reside in.

    There is another one here, Dorothy Day, that is full of thugs and thieves. I avoided going there because I value my belongings, as meager as they may be.

    Anyways, now I am working and hopefully can find a place, perhaps even where I am at, to get my farm going again. Otherwise I am waiting to finish school. I'll be in the money then!

    Wish me Luck!!

    Thanks. :lovetpu:

    I hope you understand my English, being a non-native speaker/reader. BTW, you type English very well.

    {code}[Gushing. @ Smartness_Intelligence: pic in_my head: + /perfect/ {little drunk} ] :D

    Nearly seven years ago; One day after I turned seventeen; that is, on 2006-12-21; a joint (50-50) b-day present to me form myself and my dad;
    At the start of this year's summer, I "revived" it for a second life and it is being used as my dad's work computer at a university. Since it was upgraded by me a lot since that time and thus is mostly mine, the condition of giving it away to use there was to crunch while idle.

    Aye... It's admirable You managed to pull through so well. I probably would have not managed such a feat.
    I nearly avoided turning homeless twice in my life. I am glad I managed - sure, I would probably manage through summer somehow, but I might not survive a single winter.

    I'm having network issues in the Opty 6176 rig. Might have a bad Ethernet port. Port #2 seems to work fine(there are 3 ports). Good news is the rig was working constantly, so I should have a nice dump(no pun intended :eek:).

    Edit: Looks like my Ubuntu install is corrupt and I cannot connect to the internet, so switched back hard drives to F@H and all is well now. Gonna run F@H on the 6176 until i can do a fresh install of Ubuntu this weekend. I'll make sure I have everything running for the challenge.
