    For some reason I had a rain storm this morning that has kept the temperatures down to a high around 80F. I've unleashed my rigs that include two X58 i7 running Linux. One is shown below. I have 36 cores running WCG until I fry as an egg.:)

    Lucky sod, wish it had done that for me lol :laugh:

    It's fully powered up and ready to go. Yeah damn customs kept it and made me pay £55 to get it. But meh, still cheaper than UK deals. I'll get round to giving you some heatware. Gonna run it stock till I can sort out a new case for it to be a dedicated cruncher. I'll take care of your baby ;)


    EDIT: In case anyone was wondering about the contest update.. really sorry been really busy and not had time. But you will get a double update this week :D

    Rest in peace, Dr. Roger David Lewis DVM, my father in law. He passed away this evening at around 6:30pm. Cause of death was pancreatic cancer. Goodbye Rog, you will be sadly missed.

    I'm sorry to hear about your uncles :( :cry:
    Good luck w/ your other i7!
    How's it working? Shouldn't that be ~2.8-3k PPD?
    Good luck getting that working, hardware issues suck
    I never was able to get BOINC working fine on Ubuntu, so I kept reusing the same XP license :p
    Anything you had to do to get it to work?

    I'm very sorry to hear this Paul. I've never lost any family members or friends to cancer, but it makes me very sad to hear about it :(
    This could be a totally bogus reason, but here we go: People are living longer as of late. People used to die off pretty early from diseases, accidents, or other causes. Is it possible that now that people are living increasingly longer lives, that cancer now has long enough to kill someone before they die of something else?


    BTW, if you guys haven't noticed, I haven't been around much. School has started up for me, and with that and sports I'm very busy. I'll try to drop in at least once every day or every other day, but I'm not sure that this would be possible :ohwell: :eek:

    @ Paul & KieX. Sorry to hear the news, be strong for the rest is all the advice I have. The more strength people see the more they gain in times like this. It is a lesson I learned when my best friend died twenty years ago, and then my Dad 15 Years ago, And then when my younger brother lost his wife and son just two years ago.
