    Yep, saw that :(

    But at the rate that it's going it may very well be online by the time that I need more WUs

    I hope they get it back up soon, I was doing so much better with the X4 crunching as well as the X2.

    Can you tell when I got the X4? :D

    Sure can :)

    You certainly were doing much better, over twice the PPD and it kept going up!

    Nice :respect: :toast:

    Yeah. It was nice seeing so many points.

    WGC needs to fix their servers faster. :laugh:

    It sure is, when GM was helping me, my PPD effectively doubled, which was awesome. Now I feel compelled to buy enough HW to get my PPD up to that level consistently. Success! :laugh:

    All my pending uploads went through, but now all my tasks are stuck @ ready to report. Messages still reports server down for maintenance. Tempted to get the SMP Client kicking on my i7 while WCG gets their servers together.

    The uploads are, but nothing else. Looking at the thread posted earlier it looks like the restore is moving at ~10%/hr, so my guesstimate is that it will be 2hrs until the restore is complete, then maybe an hour on top of that for them to make sure its solid. So I say we will be back crunching in about 3hrs- 2pm PST and 5pm EST :D

    Well that's not so bad then.

    My i7 seems to have gone off again, I'll have to talk to my parents about that. If it's off it's hard to use from school :shadedshu

    Damn :(

    Maybe just do FAH SMP for now? I still have work on my i7, but if I run out before it comes back online, that's what I'm going to do

Nice packing :p i haven't been able to test it yet because i haven't got a CPU for the rig yet(and have heard nothing from BLK :wtf: not sure if he is busy still or what but i would like a reply even if it is him telling me he won't send it. so blk if you read this PM me bro)

    It looks like I might well be getting two more computers.

    The first will be an intel i3 530 rig which I will keep and use at work instead of the old Pentium 4. Increases productivity, it's my own money not the company's... that's how I justify building that one probably sometime next month.

    The second will be an mATX build, either an AMD X6 or Intel i5 just because it's small enough to fit in my cramped room. If I don't fold a GPU on it I would imagine it wouldn' heat up the room much more. (Note to self.. no GPU:laugh:) This will probably be for december because.. christmas gift to self

    BLK has a lot going on right now, but if he said he would send it I am sure it will get to you.

    As far as the packaging, I have a surplus of bubble wrap, card board scraps and a huge stack of paperbags :laugh: It only cost ~$1.50 to send which sure beats $5.85 for a small flat rate. Im glad it got there undamaged. Should work just fine, and after you test it feel free to leave me a HEAT feedback? :D

    I know BLK has had alot going on. I'm not trying to sound rude towards him or anything i'm just impatient sometimes.

    I will leave you some heat once i get everything setup. Even if it doesn't work i will still leave you some positive heat. :toast:

    Still getting connection errors on my end. Going to take this down time to upgrade my Client version to the latest release.
