    ITX case, only got room for a second 3.5" drive. I'll probably just buy a 2TB HDD, loading times dont really affect me too much.

    I'm using a 2.5" drive as storage, its a momentus 750gb 7200/16, seems pretty ok to me and is quieter than a 3.5"

    Might invest in a 2.5" Scorpio


    The HWBot competition is for specific CPU's, mostly intel, and some old graphics cards most of us dont have. The only competition area I can enter into is pointless because my CPU will get beaten by 4770K's and 8350's (The superpi 32m AMD&Intel). That's why most of us haven't joined in ;) It might be open to all, but in reality it's only really open to those with a specific set of processors.

    Asking this in here as I did post a thread but not got any replies ( has no patience!!)

    Boot manager/loader
    Anyone still use these? I remember using them back in the day to install multiple OS' but can't seem to find anything that isn't 10 years old, I've just partitioned my drive and installed Ubuntu on the 2nd partition but have no way of booting to it :banghead:

    you havent setup properly boot loader. if you use 2 different OS you need boot loader in order to be able to select which one you want to run.
    if you use 2 versions of win (xp&7 for example) you can make them working together with boot.ini (which is windows boot loader). in theory you can make win and linux to boot with boot.ini too but things arent pritty.
    when i have added linux to my pc i used lilo to handle dual boot settings. usualy during linux installation it is enough select manual configuration of lilo and then to select which os will be primary and how many seconds boot menu will be shown and that's it. everything else is done by linux installation automaticaly. i have used only fedora so far but in ubunto it should be similar.
    btw why dont you take usb stick and install live ubunto on it. just leave some free space on hdd for linux swap and storage/installed software/temp files you may need under linux and let mb to handle boot sequence. this is the way i am gone make it with my new rig

    It's all a ruse, saving it for later, I'll buy a H87 for the pentium eventually and a 4770K or something ridiculous and rebuild my main rig. Though in fairness I cant complain about my current CPU, but buying shiny things is just too much fun.

    Agreed. Now if I could just do something about all the damn cheapskates in Leicester I'll be a happy man buying more new things.

    Booooo!

    After 27 years of lifting weights (I'm 39 now) I had the confirmation last week from GP - Inguinal Hernia. It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the fact I'm a f***ing Gym Manager.

    13 week referral wait to see a surgeon to discuss operating.

    Or. I phoned BUPA. £250 to see a consultant in two days then £2395 all in to get fixed. Possibly in a week, if not two.

    So, I can buy 3 more Titans :roll: or get my bowels pushed back in so i can do proper exercises again.....

    You know what did it? Bloody body levers - used to do static levers for 20 secs before bedtime - but they started hurting about 6 months ago - now i know why :banghead:

    So if i go private i can get back to working on my newest toy.... Power Cage and plate loading pulley. Replaces my old smith which i'm donating to my gym.

    Damn son, I had a hernia about 3 years ago, and I used to be a cross country runner for a few years, doing a few dozen miles a weekend. Stopped me right in my tracks, so I feel your pain!

    Luckily for me we have insurance with BUPA so it wasn't so bad.
    That being said I have Bilateral Flatfoot syndrome so I cant run anymore anyway, and occasionally get super bad RSI in my left foot :laugh:

    I could sort that out for you, free of charge, I have done a fair bit of "self surgery" and have had to on a couple of occasions pushed back in the contents of the lower abdominal area for a couple of people, when I say contents I mean things like stomach, large and small intestines etc etc, A bottle of whiskey (for me not you :)) a sterile sharp knife, and lots of clean cloths are often enuff. :rockout:

    Tatty is a honourable soldier proud to serve the British people. Payment can be taken in kind (an expensive bottle of whisky for the surgery *hint* *hint*)
