    So my 8 year old asks me the other day what it was my comp was doing ( I had WCG in graphics mode). I told her a little about it and now she wants me to put it on her computer that shes getting for Xmas. In her own words, " I want to help too Daddy!" Got to love kids and thier enthusiasm. WCG is a staple in my house and neither family or other visitors can come over w/o asking what it is my computers are always doing.

    And thats the easy thing.... WCG can go on any Comp, even a kids comp cause it just runs in the background

    Both my rigs are temporarily down. Decided to finally re-arrange all the hardware I had so that I have a designated main computer I can enjoy and a dedicated cruncher/folder. Had enough of my laptop being my only useable computer :laugh: A few more days and I'll be back crunching for my usual slice of daily blueberry-pie.

    Meanwhile on a couple of Royal Mail airplanes all the spare RAM I had lying around the place is now on it's way to a couple of crunchers in the team. More goodies will be ready soon ;)

    Sure thing :)

    The C2D has been on about a week now, the i7 came online Saturday around noon (EST). Added a PentM 1.4ghz last night for what it's worth, hey, it's on 24/7 (my file/FTP/web server), so yeah, I'm doing points again.

    As a matter of fact, today was one of my better recent days:

    About 2 weeks ago I was crunching on the i7, it went offline for about 10 days, now it's back :)

    :rockout::rockout::rockout::rockout::rockout::rockout::rockout: Awesome!

    Guys, if you know anybody selling a cheap quad to put in my 2nd cruncher, let me know. Looking to upgrade it even for a lower end Quad for now.

    Not sure.....how would ~$100 sound? I may keep it around for crunching on, but I may part it out or sell it on CL...not really sure

    That doesn't sound too bad. That'll put me at 10 threads instead of 8 :) Next year my 3rd rig is coming, and that won't be pretty. :D

    Seems I may be in the market for a cheap 95W X6, X4, or a Phenom II 555 X2. If anyone has one.

    I'll let you know if I decide to sell it, keeping it is tempting because it would do about the same PPD as all of the rigs @ work combined :shadedshu

    Damn low-clocked C2Ds and Pent4s :(
    GL :)

    But my X4 955 is 125w :(
    Welcome back! :)
