You have won a sweet looking case!
congrats onry, your hard work is much appreciated and as you see it paid off
Keep on crunching hard brotha
i dont know how many of you know.
i started crunching because my father in law had lung cancer.
he was diagnosed last October. he passed away 3 weeks ago.
he never gave up ,even when he knew he had lost the fight.
so i made a promise to him that i wouldn't give up either.
i got some more rigs in the works, and ill be crunchin for a long time to come.
Your case is on it's way
those are touching words man, I'm really sorry to hear about your loss. You have earned a spot in our family though, the TPU Family. You know how to find us whenever you need something, we are all over the place
I feel for you man. My step father died of lung/brain cancer 3 years ago, and my father in law is dying of pancreatic cancer. Sometimes the reasons we crunch really hit home. It's not about the numbers, it's all about helping to find a cure for these terrible diseases.
OH WTF I DIDNT WIN?! I QUIT!! IMA GO JOIN A NEW TEAM AND WIN PRIZES!!
Congrats onry Hope to see some mods in the near future or at least some sexyness.
EDIT: Paulieg be sure and thank your generous donor again
im glad no one from my family died of cancer, or has ist atm.
so im working just for the positive Karma,to be a good human
AND FOR MOAR POINTZ!
welllll ,the Xclio came bout 1/2 hour ago . it is frickin HUGE.
i cant get over the amount of HDD's it will hold.
everything looked to be in pretty good shape except for a couple of cracks in the side window
which arent a big deal. i can deal with those later maybe ill put in a smoked wndow or something.
did i mention this thing is HUGE and weighed in at over 40 pounds shipped.
i got a couple of rigs to finish puttin linux for other folks then im going to stick my current setup in the Xclio to see how it all works out.
I'll keep you posted as things progress.
i might even throw a couple of pics up of it next to my cm690 so you get an idea of just how big it is.
Again thanks to TPU and the team you guys rock
Congrats Onry!!! Dont forget to post up some pics when you get her running.
Happy to hear you got your case. We are looking at doing a competition soon, and this time we have a sponsor for the event. We just need to find a team that is willing to take on the challenge. We already offered a challenge to RRR. They declined to respond. This was most likely because they knew we would run them over.
I like the sound of a sponsor, but our grassroots competition was still great Hopefully the next one receives more publicity here in the forums!
hope i have a chance but i don't think i will.I have only won 1 contest in my life but i'm sure i can make the numbers needed
EDIT:SHIT!!!!i misread the date. i'm a fucking dumb ass
Hopefully, the next competition will be a team vs. team effort, combined points over 30 days. We will see who is up to the challenge.
Don't pick XS please lol I'll OC this to 4.0ghz if we find a competitor! (F the electrical bill!!!)
were are my pics?
I don't pay the bill this year, Uni does. Can leave computer going 24/7 and don't pay over £65 a week.
Moral - get a flat where bills are included in the rent!
