    Well guys, good news. My buddy who has not crunched in months has started up again with my ex Phenom II 940, and his moms Q6600. Thats another 8 threads. I've also sent a PM to Rammie asking if he can extend his stay at TPU slightly until our team challenges finish. We need all the help we can get. :toast:

    This is the convo with me and my buddy :toast:

    white91tsiawd (8:41:15 PM): what would it take for you to crunch, any small bit. maybe just nights. anything?
    my buddy (8:41:29 PM): i can do that
    white91tsiawd (8:41:57 PM): we need help with a challenge
    my buddy (8:42:16 PM): cool ima put the phenom to crunch
    white91tsiawd (8:42:27 PM): i fucking love you bro!
    my buddy (8:42:36 PM): lol ima put my moms to crunch in a bit
    white91tsiawd (8:44:27 PM): anything helps, don't have to be all day man
    my buddy (8:44:28 PM): im trying to get jobs now
    white91tsiawd (8:44:34 PM): k
    my buddy (8:46:56 PM): the phenom is cruching already

    Just when everything was going great, my QX rig didn't want to connect to the net, then it was giving all sorts of weird issues. I would do it tonight but there is not enough time as I will be going to sleep early. Tomorrow soon as I get home from work I will give it a fresh install of W7 and see if that was the issue. I had a buggy version of XP on it. I'll keep you guys posted, I'll be doing a cruncher till tomorrow night.
