    I'm surprised my points didn't dip more than they did. I had my main computer off for most of the day a few days ago because I just happened to set my hand down on the power cable to my computer and went "Oh. That's quite hot."
    The cord I was using didn't have a gauge listed on it. Swapped it out for a 16 gauge and it seems to be happier.

    I owned a 69 Chevelle 396 SS, with Cowl Induction! Dude listed it in the paper as a 69 Malibu for $600. I drove out there with a buddy. He lived in an apartment complex and his wife wanted the garage back. The car was his brother's, he was killed in an accident at sea, he was a Marine.

    He had inherited it and really did not know what he had. He opened the garage door and I saw the ass end of a Red w/ dual white stripes 69 SS...

    I put on the best acting job ever. " so, does it start?" he says yea, wanna take it for a spin? "If it starts, lets go to the bank, got one near here?" he says yea, about a mile. He gets in, fires it up. I turn to my friend, another gearhead, and told him not to smile and not to say a word, you are a dumbass right now until I get the title, right? He turns around, to hide his face. Walked back to our car and hid behind the steering wheel.

    He let's me drive to the bank. I putted around town to the bank. Then we went to city hall, changed the title.

    I hit 140 MPH on I94 on the way home.

    My insurance went through the roof, I was 19. Ended up selling it for $3000 to a car guy that was friends with my Drag racing neighbor, because I knew he would take care of it. For three and a half weeks, everywhere I went, even at stoplights, people wanted to buy it, crowded around it. It was 1986 and the car was mint with only 28 thousand miles on it. If I had had a place to store it, I would still have it. Undoubtedly, the best car I ever owned, not the fastest but the best.

    Oh well. If I ever get a chance I am going to get another one.

    BTW, Nice work guys! Looks like ION's new i7 is just enough to stave of Vinska's school! :laugh:

    I am pretty sure it is from "Good Fellas" Danny Devito, to the younger guy, don't recall his name. Now you remember, right?

    OMG!!!

    I used to have a 68 SS 396 with cowl induction and a M22 4 speed; it was the bright yellow with the dual black stripes. Great, now you make me kick myself in the ass again. Every dang time I think of that car I kick myself for selling it!
    Another one I kick myself for; had a 67 GTO convert with the 400 six pack with 4 speed. A junk yard shell is worth 4 grand now. In good shape they go for around 30 to 40K.

    Okay, now that I am done kicking myself, I will get back on subject.

    Well as I suspected, I am out of the top 30 today. However I did get that hex core Xeon today and about have that system together. I know, shut up, quit typing in the forums, and get it done; right? :laugh: Well its getting late..........LOL (EDIT:)) Okay, so I couldn't sleep any how, so I finished the hardware work and posted the system to the bios to insure everything works.
    Ah hell, it'll be done and crunching tomorrow. :p

    Wow, my score was super low in the second half of the WCG-day. I wonder if that whole maintenance of WCG servers has anything to do with it... I assume it does. A lot. (My WUs refused to report for many, many hours. Aww well...)
    Was this maintenance only in Europe, or was it happening in the US, too? Any of You US guys noticed it?

    Still, oddly, awesome numbers, as well! Don't fret too much, your recent additions are still doing incredibly well, on an off day!!
