    Dude would not answer!! I will see him tonight. He is gonna be in for it!! Sent a text, called twice and e-mailed him! I might have to beat the crap out of him! He is seriously pissing me off. He'd better have a decent answer to as why he did not return my calls or text!

    3 hours? That is 7 pm Central. I thought it was starting at midnight. If it is at 7, should I unload my sandbag now or wait until the WCG update is over? :confused:

    Keep on him, get it going! :roll:



    Good new on my end...
    After some calls/texts/emails, I just got my other brother do let me "borrow" his 3570k as a part time cruncher, likely just during the day hours. Persistance pays off :D

    That sucks, anything that is painful sucks lol but it happens just glad its working out for you. Remember it could've been worse.

    I'm waiting for that new 4790k to come out then its upgrade time and its going to be the last for 2-3 years.
    And a lappy does the trick, it all adds up for sure.
    I wish I knew how to get my lgG2 quad core phone to crunch as its pretty powerful and sense I'm in the truck for the next 2 days I can leave it plugged in and let it chomp away then dump the work once back across the border.

    I just dumped my BOINC load ('cept for the 3.4 GHz FX-8320 which I can't reach remotely. Must have BSOD'ed again...)
    It's 03:15 here. I waited for the challenge to start to dump it all. Well deserved sleep time now. :)

    Yeah, if I would have known about the 4790k I would have waited for sure. If I was working right now id get one, unless I am happy with what I get out of the 4770k. Need to buy that Intel Tuning Plan warranty.

    I think I'll just fire up the 2320. Kind of in a tight spot ATM.

    Even though I dumped several days worth of work, it seems to have done jack shit, as most of it was FAAH. Meanwhile, FAAH is on a horribly low point rewards roll again HAHA.
