    That's a great idea! A bunch of us run multiple rigs.

    I have a bunch but power cost/heat sometimes prevents me from running All of them :ohwell:

    You been holding back on us, eh Cap'n? :shadedshu:

    J/K :laugh:


    That's a great idea. I think all of us look at ppd/watt when assembling/configuring, so as long as it puts out well respective of its power draw, then you're good! :toast:

    It may take some time as I am moving soon but when the time comes for the next push hopefully I will have more than one pc going. For now I will dedicate my work rig when I am home and vice versa. My Home rig has been running for about 12 hrs or so now. I also hope to read that tuning guide you linked at the start of the thread.( Just gotta find out where I saw it)
    Edit: Work pc set up and pending 5pm-11am run. Here we go.

    Sorry I've been so absent lately guys. August was a tough month with the passing of my Father and business becoming a challenge short term. I've got the Kreij memorial rig back up and I've cranked up both servers for the challenge(a little late, I know). Looking forward to cooler weather arriving so I can "work the piss" out of this hardware I've acquired. I see that Kai is back, but is he posting?

    Sorry to hear about your Father Buck. Hold on to the good memories and he will be there. I to am waiting for the cold weather. I live above a restaurant right now but am moving to a place in the sticks with half wood half electric. The G.F. is gonna be cold this winter in sacrifice of higher clocks ;)

    Well, my VM with Azure ended, and stopped results, on the 25th. I decided to pay for the next couple of days, for a 4 core rendition. All is good, puddy is showing it is running. However, the Azure portal doesn't seem to want to load. I had it for a bit, but it did not show CPU usage.

    I rebooted the VM and tried to see the Portal but, it won't load...Just a constant spinning icon.

    Oh well. It is running which means I now have 4 cores on the Lappy, 4 on the Azure VM and about a half a core on Amazon currently running jobs.:D

    PS. My buddy, who bought @theonedub 's computer, has not got internet, his sister is a heavy gambler and hasn't paid the bill. Despite him paying her rent and money for utilities! So, no help there.:(

    I got a rarely used family pc now put to use with crunching. An AMD E1-2500 apu. It sits idle almost all the time and sips power so it was a simple request. Seems spooled up now, and is getting ~500ppd.

    So just upgraded from Room V2 to Apartment V1. Meaning I've moved, and I am a bit low on furniture and internet, so my crunchers are off for now.

    I fear I'm in a similar boat as @agent00skid unfortunately.

    I'm shutting down the pc's: 2 are already off and this one is about to go off too. I hate to do it, but there's nothing much I can do at present. :cry:

    AC started acting funky tonight. I've tried a few things and it seems to be better, but I don't think it'll be holding out the entire night; gotta have the AC boys here tomorrow to flush this thing out. And since I have my in-laws over for a few days (a family of 4, til they can move into their new place), I need to cut down on all extra heat as possible. NO HOT SHOWERS! :laugh:

    So now it's a waiting game on the landlord, and while I hope it's taken care of swiftly, I have a strong feeling.... :rolleyes:

    Jeez, MoT, that sucks bro. Hell, ya should be here. Temps are already dipping down in the upper 40's at night. God I am not ready for winter. They claim that average first freeze here is the 10th of September. I have a feeling its going to happen this year.

    That's a good lady @Norton! My wife usually is the one that arranges these things and takes care of issues, but when it's something that needs immediate fixing, it's me that has to take care of it.

    (however she is the one that speaks with the landlord and arranges for the permanent fixing)


    My bro-in-law for his shop vac and we sucked out some nasty from the drain so I'm thinking it'll be ok for tonight and last us. Tomorrow hopefully the AC guys will blow the rest of the junk out and perma-fix this :)


    @stinger608 it's only fair that you have a nice chilly winter since I've had the most disgusting summer ;) (but really, I don't wish a horrible winter in anyone after seeing the stuff from last winter)
