    Be a part of one of the biggest global experiments ever to take place on the internet. The idea behind the experiment is to find out how many people can go without a computer for one whole day, and what will happen if we all participate. Shutdown your personal computer tomorrow and see if you can stand for 24 hours without a PC. Click here to find out more.

    I might be able to do it. I think I might have gone one day before with out my pc. I have a new dual sport motorcycle to ride (appox. 700 ,miles on it and they are all mine) and the weather is supposed to be good. So I will be out revving my Suzuki DRZ 400S around the Sierrra Nevada mountains and leaving my Antec NSK1300 turned off.

    When the organisers of said experiment/whatnot pay for a dedicated server for me, then maybe. Until then, my workstation is going to continue to double as a server.

    PS while you're buying me a server, throw in a few interesting books to occupy me with.

    K thnx :rolleyes:.

    kakaka that's what I'm talking 'bout! Anyway, I believe:
    * 8 outta 10 of us won't be able to do it
    * 2 will be able to do it BUT just for ONE day! unless his comp dies after being turned off LOL

    That's all I gotta say. Myself will leave it on no matter what! even the president come to my house I'm just gonna say: "sorry sir my life depends on it :slap: "
