    Ok then; I just let you know that, having lost four relatives/friends in the last few years, I donate/do charity often. ;) :toast:

    Is that a beard growing on your throat? You need some skin-so-soft.

    Prayers your way.

    All the more reason to join WCG & crunch for TPU. I used to fold many years ago for TPU but I stopped and just never went back to it. With intels new overclockable DC CPU i might even build a cheap system and rejoin the collective. Definitely something I will consider - is the thread where crunchers can donate to other crunches or crunchers who wish to crunch still up? I might need a few parts to take the edge off my wallet :p

    Me, @W1zzard, @Norton, @manofthem, @Tatty_One and @sneekypeet are discussing a forum wide donation thread to make a rig to crunch for HelpCureCancer and dedicate it to Kreij. It's early and nothing is set in stone yet.

    Well, If i was the recipient of such parts, Id name the machine 'Krej's Last Hope' in jest because he wouldnt want any of us to be saddened by his passing. Though the joke is also because one of greatest british comedians has recently also just passed away and i wanted to honor him as well, though autopsy reports have been inconclusive about what actually killed him.

    may i present Rik Mayall

    [​IMG]

    A British comedic genius that inspired many a comedian today and made the nation laugh since the 80's. such awesomeness starred in the tv series(s): Young ones, Blackadder, Bottom & many may more that were hugely influential in making him a household name in brit comedy.

    I'm not sure, would it be acceptable to post the obituary? I don't want to invade on the family's privacy here.

    We're bouncing around ideas about this, and gauging what we think the community here would like to do. If anyone has any ideas, or if everyone likes the idea of a HCC WCG rig, do let us know. We're open to anything, and following what Kreij asked us to do:

    Norton, Random Murderer and Sasqui say thanks.

    That particular idea has my endorsement, and I plan to contribute.

    Just so anybody that reads this thread in the future, I got it fixed sometime later and private messaged him that it was fixed. I don't keep PMs for long so I don't have his reply. Now I wish I did. It was all trivial though.

    Kreij introduced me to the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). Had he not have done so, I would probably still be using WinForms. I've referenced his code frequently on other WPF projects.
