    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. :D

    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.
    Chicken Patty says thanks.

    welllll ,the Xclio came bout 1/2 hour ago :eek:. 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 :D 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 :toast:
    HammerON and Chicken Patty say thanks.

    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. :rockout:

    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!

    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.

    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! :D
