    No, I'm still waiting on that trade to be confirmed.

    It'll be a Core 2 Duo E6300 with a GTS240 for folding. :toast:

    Oh, well that's cool too :)

    I'm going to try a fresh install of OS X on my Macbook as soon as I have time...this install just seems to be 'messed up' in various ways :ohwell:

    I'll have to see if I can find a disk of OS X....or maybe I'll just try Windows. That's a thought :)

    Good luck on that. :toast:

    this E6300 did about 700 PPD when I had it crunching a while back, maybe I can get my hands on a Quad soon and replace it with that. if I can do that, then if the i3 trade comes through, I can maybe get a S1156 i7 in that rig plus my X6, that'll be 18 threads working for us. :toast:

    Awesome! :rockout:

    A bit sad (for me @ least) that 18 of your threads would probably beat 48 of my threads :ohwell:

    I still won't have your PPD so no worries. :) But I'll put up more of a fight though :laugh:

    Oh, I'd be surprised if you were much less than 15k with that...so that's only a few K less than what I'm at ATM ;)

    And I'm very vulnerable to the systems @ school getting turned off (ie over the summer & probably the longer breaks). Hopefully they'll leave them going over Thanksgiving & Christmas break :D

    Hope so too! That'll be a big hit in points if they don't. :(

    Yeah...quite :shadedshu

    But I'm still not going to complain, and I'd say there's a decent chance that especially over Thanksgiving, they'll stay on.

    One of the systems had a 46-day uptime when they were all rebooted for updates today :eek:

    Down a tad from my best ever day of 20,738 yesterday :eek:

    Even PPD like this still places me ~No.25 in XS :eek:

    Yeah...the last slice of pie is ~45k PPD :eek:

    And here the last slice is like 10k :eek:

    We may be small, but I much prefer things here :)

    I never crunched for XS, can't speak from experience because I have none. But I doubt any other team beats the team spirit and home/family feeling we got here. :toast: ...and that's what makes us special.

    Now damn it, I gotta go bomb the Russians, stop posting! :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

    Meeting with the porcelain god? Ever heard of that? LOL
     
  18. twilyth Guest

    That was a new one for me too.

    Now, 'porcelain god' normally implies yakking as a result of having over-imbibed, but bombing run normally means #2 (and possibly ballistic diarrhea). I really hope for all our sakes we're not talking about ballistic diarrhea. ;)

    No we are not, just #2 on. This one, although it was close to being ballistic :laugh:

    Normally the room with 2 of my rigs is nice and toasty. today I noticed that it was a little chilly in there but I didn't make the connection. Neither rig was producing. One had hit a free diskspace limitation and the other one was still trying to reboot from last night. Damn. I was wondering why I was 25th on today's point listing.

    Well, at least I know I can dial back the thermostat now. :banghead: :laugh:

    Wow...you must have small disks :eek:

    I've never had any issues w/ not enough memory or not enough disk space

    Believe it or not it's weird, but I can tell if something is wrong by the temp in my room. For example today it was A LOT cooler when I got home from work.

    My 2nd rig had rebooted and hung! This rig I'm going to have to start troubleshooting it, restarts like once a week. I'll take off one card at a time, and see what's causing the issue. It started since I added the 8800 GS so I'm starting by there.

    I typically check the WCG site about once a day to make sure that all 25 systems @ school are pulling down WUs...one got turned off, and I noticed it like that.

    I also typically log in to about half a dozen or a dozen systems at random each day just to verify that things are going fine, so far no issues have arisen :)

    Who you sayin' got a small dick? Huh?

    What's that? He said 'disk' not 'dick'? Really.

    Ummm. Please excuse my previous outburst - apologies. :respect:

    No, the problem was that it was on an SSD that had been cloned from the 60gig SSD that just died recently. I never got around to expanding the partition and I had required that boinc leave at least 20gig of free space. The new one is 120gig but like I said, I never expanded the 60gig partition to the full 120gig. So, basically it was simply a case of me shooting myself in the foot . . . yet again.
