    Has anyone heard from Blkhogan? His rigs haven't put out points for a few days and I know He was going through a hard time, I hope all is well.

    Aww, kittehs FTW!

    It seems as if my last P4 has gone offline, I'm going to talk to my parents about putting WCG on my laptop again. It's only another 7w or so
    If so, that's ~700 PPD again

    I believe it's not a money issue as mentioned by ION, just his parents being hard headed about it. No offense meant on that ION :toast:

    Just ordered my new mobo, a new mousepad, a new mouse, and a 4/8 pin cable extension for my PSU.

    I'll be putting my ASRock mobo up for sale soon, I would like to sell it to a cruncher rather than any random person. Not sure what I'm going to want for a price yet, need to think about it some more.

    :respect: That'll pair up with your rad and the GX2 block I got from Bogmali, hopefully in the next week or two. Going for silence, I was torturing myself with all this noise before. Oh and that fan on the side of the tech bench, it's spinning at it's lowest, it's a Antec Tri Cool. Uber silence!

    My father in law is losing his fight with pancreatic and lung cancer. My wife is currently at his bedside. She doesn't think he'll make more than another day or two. I'll be ramping up my i7 this afternoon in honor of him. I'd appreciate if everyone could push a little harder today. :cry:

    Agreed. I grow tried of losing family members to cancer.

    It's why I crunch, to help do what I can to fight these nasty diseases. (Because I for one know I'm not good enough in the science department to do anything about it.:eek:)

    Should have another i7 up and running tonight. :D

    I've lost two uncles over the last month. I hadn't seen my uncles in over 8 years until last summer when I made the effort to visit them when I went back to Spain. This may sound selfish but I'm so relieved I got to spend some quality time with them and have a few laughs with them. It's tragic to not have them around anymore, so to all you other guys having some bad times at the moment, keep your spirits up and enjoy your time with your loved ones.

    In my opinion it's the good times you'll remember. And the losses the ones that will encourage you to keep crunching harder and perhaps more importantly: living your own life to it's most.

    Amen brothers.
