    I'm going to make sure I'm careful. Thanks for the advice.

    As for the cruncher, it's AMD Athlon II X2 240 Regor 2.8GHz. So it'll put out some decent PPD, he leaves his rig on 90% of the time anyways. So that's why he was okay with it. But it's going to be a nice little rig. Nothing super nice, but still pretty decent considering he was using a P4.

    Well, that should be good for ~800/850 PPD :)

    Well guys, I heard back from Stanhemi.

    This was my PM to him:

    "Hey dude, just wanted to check up how were you doing, your health better bro? Well hope you are doing good man, get back at me soon."

    Here was his response:
    Hi
    I think a lot about you guys and I'm bored of not being able to be present at tpu

    Unfortunately my health keep deteriorating a lot and i'm waiting for a surgery to remove a mass in my throat.I am now living with my sister and i need a oxygen mask cause the mass block my airway.I lost a lot of weight since I can barely eat, but the children of my sister helps me to keep the faith.

    the bad new is
    I can not start radiotherapy for my thyroid gland before the surgery.

    I'll let you know if a change occurs and i inform my sister st├ęphanie to let you know if something happen to me.

    Thanks
    god bless you
    stanley



    Hopefully his sister will never have to contact me or any of us :( My prayers go out to him :respect:
    Paulieg, KieX, King Wookie and 4 others say thanks.

    So, I'd hate to double post... But....

    I just got Assassin's Creed II Yesterday, and it is more than likely going to affect my PPD output. Game is VERY enjoyable. Better than the first one by far. Although it makes me want my 5770 that much more...

    I nuked the laptop and did a fresh install of Win7 Pro x64, so it should do ~10% more PPD (x64 vs x32).

    My Athlon II 240 clocked to 3.5GHz on less than stock voltage ;)

    That's terrible... I say we all crunch in his name to show him our ongoing support... provided he gives us his WCG password, heh

    I'll send him a message shortly :toast:
