    Damn it MW!!!!!!! I am very sad that this happened however as most have already stated; he is no longer suffering from the pain and anguish that engulfed his life!

    God bless him and God speed!!!!!!!!

    These types of tragedies make me realize more than ever why we crunch. Hopefully we will be a small help in curing this terrible illness.

    Keep your chin up my friend and crunch on!

    Crunching/Folding is the best way to remember your Step Father, youre doing this in his memory now. So Kick some ass at it. The More Crunching/FOlding done the closer we get to better treatments for major diseases

    Thanks guys again! Oh and guys I flipped the switch to run GPU's yesterday... and I've been working my ass off getting everything back up... hehehe It flipped breakers, and UPS's.. I had one of my athlon II x4's system files to get corrupted, but nothing a check disk didn't fix. As of now all of my crunchers are crunching strong and everything is holding.

    This has also helped to take things off my mind. I'm just staying strong for my family and I couldn't do it with out the help of my wife, family and friends and of course my TPU team! :toast:

    On a side note.. How do I tell if I've got a GPU WU?

    In BOINC it will say "Running (1 CPUs + 1 NVIDIA GPU)" for nVidia and presumably something similar for ATI. That and you can check and see if under the Application column it says "Help Conquer Cancer GPU" or something to that effect. You have to enable GPU computing in BOINC, which may require updating to a newer version (or doing a non-service install, depending on how you installed it).

    As it says in the BOINC installer, if you're running Windows Vista or later, a service install blocks access to the GPUs :ohwell:

    You could always look at your GPU usage with GPU-Z or something similar. Also, you could pay attention to the progress and time elapsed of your work units. If you see one that's like 40% done in only 2 minutes, you've got a GPU unit. It will also say something about Nvidia/ATI GPU in the little info window that pops up when you mouse over the GPU unit.

    Yepper I've been watching GPU-Z and it didn't seem like it was working, but I've uninstalled it as a service on my i7 970 w/ GTX480 and it's working now. I never installed it as a service on my i7 2600k w/GTX570 gaming rig so it already has some running. Now I'll uninstall it as a services on my i5 2500k w/ GTX470. I have a 8800gs in my other 2500k but I don't think it's strong enough I'll install my HD5850 in it tomorrow. Also I have a couple of gt240's in one my i3's and a E8400 rig.. Hopefully they are strong enough.. hehehe My Q9550 w/ GTX285 should be picking up GPU WU now as well. :toast: I'll Keep you guys posted in the regular thread. :toast: Thanks again Guys!

    [EDIT] It's taking my GTX480 around 3 mins to complete a WU. :toast:

    WCG won't give GPU WUs to 8800GS cards. I'm not sure about the GT240, but I'd expect the same thing--no WCG GPU WUs. The GTX285 should get them, however :toast:

    Well that's odd now.. I'm wondering what was the fault of all my power issues yesterday.. I guess I'll chalk it up as power gremlins..

    My thoughts go out to you and your family, I know only too well what pain you must be going through, although at my age it's inevitable sadly that those close to you start leaving you.

    My Mother in Law was diagnosed with Bladder cancer yesterday, she is coming to Florida with us all next week, when we get back she starts high dose Chemo and I am going to upgrade my rig to an i5 Ivybridge/GTX 660Ti and then I will start contributing towards a cure for this evil disease, Cancer has not touched my family before.... lots of other stuff has so perhaps this is the :nutkick: I needed to do something useful....

    Nice man!

    I'm sorry to hear that about your Mother in Law hopefully they can remove all of it. I made another thread a few months ago about my best friend growing up was diagnosed with Bladder cancer... Luckoly they were able to remove all of the cancer with surgery and Chemo. But bad news hit friday when I was told they found 2 more spots.. So, he is waiting for the test results to tell if they are cancer. I pray they are not. I'll update his thread when I hear any news. Thanks for sharing Tatty! and that i5 Ivybridge/GTX 660Ti will kick some ass!
