    yeah, thats about the same i guess. in german, we made up a term from it, and its also to be found in normal daily speech, even tho its use is uncommon, and normally integrates a form of underlying respect, as it should imply, the person that did wrong would, as you say, feels a personal grief for it;)

    Sorry for the double post, but I wanted to make it clear that wasn't a criticism. I just thought it was interesting and figured that it somehow related to the traditional, biblical mourning ritual. It's especially interesting because it melds the idea of grief over loss with grief over a social faux pas.

    There is a US expression 'mud on my face' which would probably be the closest equivalent. I think the Brits have some similarly colorful expressions but I can't think of any at the moment.

    edit - oops, not a double post after all. Thanks.

    i didnt took it as criticism, and to your thoughts i may also add, thats its not very common to use this term. its mostly used when a person wishes to express personal shame for itself, against another person that the first person sees as beeing respectable. people tend to find it very polite, if this term is used also;)

    yeah, mud on your face should be most equivalent, even tho, as you say, its more colorful, but not definetly more visual than piling ash on your head. i admit, there is a slight difference, in that mud in your face implies an inability to remove the dirt, whereas piling ash on your head implies the wish for tears. in my knowledge, even small amounts of ash burn horribly in the eyes, and make your cry over and over, so my guess is, that is was done as a form of "crying intenser"
    socially, it wont make that big of a difference, but its interesting how different words, with slightly different meaning, can literally mean in the same in a social context ;)

    Thank you :)

    And I'm only a tad over 1 year of runtime away from 20 years, and I'm closing in on top-2000 position in all three categories (points, results, runtime) :)
    Honestly I never would have thought that I would be the worst off in terms of runtime, but I guess it goes to show that things change :p

    Gonna try it, but I doubt overvolting allows me to keep my warranty.

    EDIT: 1000th Post! Lol what a bad one to have

    I'm really sorry, that's an expensive loss. :(

    Oh, of course. I've slightly mislead companies for RMAs before as well ;)

    Yep, overvolting kills the warranty, but I didn't see you overvolt anything.

    I'm pretty sure he did though :(
    So as long as you're @ stock volts you can clock it as far as you want and still be under warranty?

    Wow....that's nothing short of remarkable. I don't think I've killed a chip since an Athlon XP

    Depends on the clocks & how much you run it. If it's stock clocked, that's not bad for 24/7 operation. But my i7 860 @ 3.8ghz can pull 4.5k a day, so if you're OCed much that's definitely low (assuming it runs most of the time)

    A bit low then. Are you running @ 100% CPU load (IIRC the default is 60%)? And are all of the WUs validating (ie no errors)?

    You should be getting a consistent ~4-4.4k PPD with that I'd say

    No errors from what I can see. I just did the config file thingy so we'll see if that helps.

    Mindweaver's config thing? And is it using 100% of the CPU continually?
