    Seems like a waste of electricity to me. Its going to be 18c on Saturday and Sunday in Glasgow but with light rain. My room i have no idea what its like in here but its not warm or cold and my rig never gets hot to the touch the cpu is at 38c right now.

    I dont know wtf you lot are running that is making the rooms that hot.

    Guess my house is just well insulated.

    For time being, there's no vacancies. We have the ideal situation where there's people for every role required.. so if anything I'm looking at improving the current workforce.

    my room is 24'c, its just an ordinary room with 3pc's in it

    Freedom etc probably have crunching farms and stuff which make some serious heat (imagine a 1000w fan heater on 24/7)

    Damn, you can tell I've not been here in a while when I can't tell what the hell is happening.. you guys post like ninjas!

    GPU folding and CPU crunching.. you would be killing two birds with one stone. Or whatever the equivalent metaphor is. Throw me a PM if you want some help getting started.

    3x 2600K's at 4.6GHz 24/7

    Yes, my house is some shitty council block from the 70's. :laugh:

    they are usually based off thermistors, which need to be calibrated and are not that predictable in comparison to traditional ones (same reason most CPU temp sensors are a couple of degree off)

    reason why my room gets so hot is because I have the hot water pipes right underneath my floorboards. we recently just had the house's electricity completely rewired. as it was decades old. Next will be modernizing the plumbing and re routing the hot water pipes so they dont run directly through my room.

    My room gets f**king hot! when the sun shines in, its like a furnace. If i close the curtains. it blocks my open windows and restricts airflow so my room just bakes even more.

    Our house is ex council; i think these where built in the 30s though they are proper brick 4 on a block houses with the solid walls inside, none of this partition walls shite like in my cousins old tenement flat. Its the sound i hate in here. The sound you'd think would be great with those massive walls like it wouldn't leak sound but no you can here the tv in the next room. Most likely due to the shitty doors and possibly sound coming from under the floors.

    I heard closing the blinds (or curtains) keeps heat from getting out and from getting in. In your case Freedom the heat would be trapped i guess.
    When we moved in here the whole radiator system had to be sorted. They just use flexible plastic pipes to a connection in the hall where its piped to the combi boiler. This place had one of those massive old boilers and a fireplace which we took out.

    The fuse box was right out of the 60s! Old guy i know ripped that out too and put in a new fuse box and re did a lot of the sockets but apparently the wiring in the house was great.

    What about getting some large cardboard box and make something custom shaped so you can have open windows but blocked out sunlight?

    I did that with my old HAF 932 box and it's pretty effective.

    Rather not say, in case anyone links my TPU to real life ;)

    EDIT: Not retail

    In the end, surviving a hot summer becomes a creative venture. Hell I opened a thread about it on TPU once and tried so many combinations.. it's like a hobby for madmen.

    Nope not a Taxman. I hate that guy. Also hate Mr. Student Loans repayment. Dirty work you say.. hmmm I shall let you know if I require someone's sickie's to be verified by a doctor of pain :pimp:

    Honestly i couldn't case less about anonymity anymore. If someone wanted to find me they probably could and its not like i have placed my address for anyone to see online. I dont give out my email either.

    another reason why i dont fold using ATi cards, is cuz they suck at it. and Folding tends to kill the cards a lot sooner anyway

    Yeah, I know, nothing really anonymous nowadays. Only reason I don't want to say company name is to avoid people making the link through google quickly. I am proud of the company I work for, but if I were to one day write something that they don't agree with, rather not be the guy you read about on the news fired over something silly.

    Actually no. We deal business to business.

    Bit confused what you mean :confused: You folding on that?

    Obviously people dont want to out right say who they work for or where they live, dont want to get your job into trouble or have cunts at your door lol.

    One guy found someone's address by looking them up on ebay and buying something from them, could also pay by check and get the address. Its like CSI for stalkers.

    For sure, trading with me through TPU anyone would know all the details of who I really am. I'm just lucky that when you google my name there is:

    To be fair tpu Is a nice site anyway, I dont think we really have too many of those sorts, and to be fair you people seem like the sort of people it would be nice to know in real life anyway

    Yeah definitely. Already consider 3 from the crunching team like real friends, prob gonna see them in my travels round Europe. Also from the people I've traded with on here, you can easily tell people are genuine and reliable. (well ok, we've had a couple bad ones, but we all clock on pretty quick who's an unwelcome part of the community.. like watercooled)

    Oh.............

    Not sure if I remember correctly.. you're a 100% proof spirits person?

    If you ever drink beer, this would be the best place.. so many options! Also the only time of year I get to find proper cloudy cider.

    I do backflips of joy in my mind thinking about the great stuff they have on tap.

    REAL ALES FTW! Cloudy Cider is hard to come by, only time i had some was in a bar that served it from a box.

    Theres a wetherspoons we call Sir Jakes (Sir John Sterling Maxwells) sometimes it serves Real Ales. Its definitely not a practical walking distance. Grubs a bit shit too lol but the drinks cheap.
