    Back to weather. Early this week it hit 50f. Today it had a high of 30f. The 20c range continues.

    Is anyone else waiting for MCM WU's to validate? They seem to take days to validate, sometimes. :confused:

    Saw a litecoin mining rig on Reddit. Thought it'd make one FIIIINE cruncher/folder.
    Rough calculations put the total cost at approximately $144k

    Just means we'll have a flood of cheap GPUs once they're no longer profitable. Science always wins.

    Edit: I suppose it's rather irrelevant to the thread. I'll look for a different way to validate the keys. Wanted them to go to WCGers rather than random people.
    Would someone be willing to test a Steam key? Someone who appears to be from Russia got in to my Humble Bundle account. The password was somewhat simple, so it's my fault, really. The gift links I've been saving appear claimed, but I'd like to test a couple keys. First three four replies gets their choice, first come first serve?
    Worms Reloaded
    Organ Trail: Director's Cut (x2)
    Broken Sword: Director's Cut

    (Not sure if this needs to be in Crunchers Helping Crunchers or not. Was hoping this would get faster replies here.)

    Edit: Redeemed a cheap one (Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP) and it worked. Wasted the key since I've already owned it, but the above should be good.

    I have had my 7970 mining, or crunching, since I got it months after release. Thing still overclocks to 1300mhz + so no degradation yet. It was on air for half that time too. I a sure there are a bad bunch out there sure, but most miners want their gpu's to have resale value meaning they shouldn't be burn up.

    Ooh shiney!



    Edit because I don't want to double post:
    What do you guys think of that intel avaton 8 core mini itx board. 8 cores @25w. If it managed 500ppd per core that would be 4000ppd total in a very low power system.
