    First time I got some spare time to visit this lovely forum in a little while, so forgive my wall of text.

    I am crazy overload with work at the moment, got perhaps another month left of job probation. So I might wonder off for a little while again till things are more settled down. I'm looking into worldwide shipping costs to try and get that old mentioned competition rolling at some point, but prices are crazy high, so I will need to keep searching.

    I just got an i7 920 today (for my birthday tomorrow :D) and when I get paid at the end of this month I should get the mobo and RAM for it. It will then become my dedicated 24/7 cruncher, and because of electricity costs may end up with the 2 Core2Quads doing just part time like the E6300.

    That sucks :(
    This demonstrates perfectly what I love about WCG vs. F@H, while I'm not discounting F@H as a bad project, I majorly prefer how WCG will buffer several days of work at your request while F@H doesn't

    Happy B-Day KieX!

    Thx. I was so happy to see that I moved a place up so I didn't notice at first that all moved up. :)

    ½ hour after I left my house for 3 weeks in Saudi on the 8th of April my i7 rig (or my internet connection) crashed. Not easy to move up with only a laptop. Things are getting back to normal since my wife now has returned home from 2 weeks vacation in Thailand to restart things.

    Well, that seriously sucks, I left my rigs on (at the time, a Q9400 and a P8600) when I went out of town for 2 weeks over Christmas break, only to have the internet go out about halfway through the trip (I was using my sister's laptop to check on WCG daily to make sure everything was working)

    Seems like it was the internet, not the rig that gave in. Around 50 jobs are now pending validation but at least 200 was too late. Soon I will be good for 5000 PPD, not just 300.

    According to ATT my modem is bad, however they replaced it just over a year ago. They say it has a one year warranty so they wanted to charge me for one. After telling the lady a few things like " so every year I have to buy a new modem, that's ridiculous" she said shell send a tech today to make sure it's not a problem with the line. So god knows how much longer I'll be without Internet.

    This is why you should buy your own modem, and not the crap one your ISP offers.

    Good idea Randall, before paying them $40 I might see what I can find locally. Any suggestions?

    Thanks guys, I'll check the links out later guys. Hopefully is just a issue with the line and the tech can fix it there on the spot.

    I'd recommend Netgear quite highly too. I've had a DG834 since who knows how long. That thing has outlasted every single thing in my room, it even reconnects automatically if internet connection is lost. It's so damn good at what it does I sometimes forget I have it :roll:
