    yeah thats right, sadly, her kind is really really rare... it will take years, to find a similar girl.
    im not that... manly.. regarding my relationships. i cant simply say: " i want this one, or i want this one"... i prefer to be found:eek: besides of that, everything in my life it doomed to be sluuuugggishhhhh. the more important, the more time dependant things are. i want 4ghz stable since 2 years or so, have i reached them till now?:laugh:
    im doomed to live my personal Bane privatly, and also, i need to safe the world,officially

    Don't let it get you down. Either way things always have a habit of working themselves out for the better.

    I thought this would be a great way to waste my time:
    [​IMG]

    Essentially, I believe everyone will have a rollercoaster life, some more scary than others. Mine have up till recently been determined a lot by the women in my life. But my last goodbye to someone, was also the start of something new, and better. I can quite honestly say, women will no longer be a determining factor of how my rollercoaster goes. (That doesn't mean I've become a cold hearted person by the way :D)

    Not sure if this is so much intended for you personally, as me just wanting to share something with as many people as I can, that has helped me sort my life out whatever the circumstance:

    im 20,and i feel much,much older. like some part of me is already a few thousand years old.
    i often behave much more reasonable, and confident, than 40 year old people i know... and i then cant understand, where this "elderly calmness" sometimes came from...and why no one can stand up for himself, even in that high age... i always was like that. as kid, i didnt cried much, i didnt needed friends, i was able to entertain myself. and i really struggle to find someone thats even percentual like me. like 10 persons independendly called me "Freak" in my Life, because im so horribly misplaced,somehow.
    They all seem to feel,that there is something strange about me, and that i dont belong here. i belong on a place, where i can manifest things out of thin air, just because i want to. where there are no physical and psychological borders. i sometimes stand there, beeing furios, that i cant manipulate matter, or hold things in the air thru pure will. not because i want to be able to do that, just because i somehow try to do that, without really realizing that i do!:eek: how often do i use my hands, to direct invisible energy, without no one ever told me how to do that?
    i have my own personal world, full of multicolored energy, and protective fields,energic beams, which works like a dimmable overlay. and i dont even know a bit, if thats a part of personal madness, or if i really have extraordinary powers. i just know 2 things. i disbelieved it for months, till i prooved myself that it works.
    And that it works like a car repaired by native africans, only with industrial rubble:laugh:
    i always knew i had some kind of mission. and i always disliked unreal authority. im able to learn, but i wont listen to an idiot, and most times knew things better,that people realize.
    someone here believing in rebirth, and reincarnation of "elder" souls=?

    BIG Sorry for such an offtopic Post!:eek:

    @Pos
    youre a damn lucker! the worst is still to come for you :p your age was the beginning of the real end for me :eek:

    Good day Velvet! Wow! That's some kind of experience man! And I for myself believe in Reincarnation! There are things in this life that we are not able to explain and has an underlying strangeness to it! No one can explain it to us, not by religion or not by science. I guess the explanation really lies within ourselves! Hey, have you read the book by Jane Roberts? Seth Speaks? I found some explanations in this book that somehow answered my questions in life! Well but thats just me! If you can find a copy of that book then I know it would help you somehow!:toast:

    They really got to make the multiprocessor option limit the affinity of the work units--not just throttle them. Throttling means I have to kill BOINC/WCG so my games don't get bad FPS; restricting the number of cores it runs on means 4-5 cores could be crunching whilst the game runs on the remaining 3-4 cores.

    They really need to get that fixed. :(


    On the current topic: My life looks like equation y=6/x + 1. Graph it. :p

    They should really have a drop-down menu with a number of threads you want to use based on the number of threads it detects you have instead of using funky percentages.

    It'd be nice if there was a way to set it via a third-party app too. That way a launcher for software could order BOINC/WCG to back down before starting the intended application and resume it after the application closes. Berkley would get a lot more work and fewer missed deadlines out of me if they did that.

    Welcome to the team! :toast:

    I've not personally tried this yet, but I've seen it mentioned quite often in WCG forum:
    TThrottle http://www.efmer.eu/boinc/tthrottle_manual.html

    That looks really ace in black and red. Never seen that combo before.

    youre right, and wrong at the same time. most people will never know, and some people will be able too "see" thru the borders of Time and Space. i have more explanations, than you probably want to hear, but also a million questions more. if you meant:"the amount of Information is too big, to fit a Human Mind" then you hit the nail on the head;)
    i heard of this Seth book, in German its "Gespräche mit Seth". tho i never read it. i just know, that there are some People on this Planet, that will be able to tell you things you never imagined, and normal people fear like hell. you know, they fear to loose their blindness, because we pull down their hands from their faces, so they can see. but that is too much for them. its like the people in that platonian cave
    [​IMG]
    they shudder, and hide their faces again
    i cant get into much detail here,tho, without beeing regarded as crazy:eek:
    if youre interested in more info, just PM me;)
