    Well guys, I'm shutting everything off for the weekend until the hurricane blows by on sunday. I don't want to take a chance of losing my internet connection or power and not be able to return the tasks on time. Plus it gives me a chance to clean them up a little. Once it's over, I'll fire them back up.

    That's probably a good idea, but I probably won't change anything until Sunday. Maybe Saturday night. I have one rig down due to a bad video card so once I get motivated to put in the new 6850 i'll have to clean out the queue.

    Conn. looks like it could get hit harder being on the coast. I'm in the center of NJ so we shouldn't see any winds over 50mph, but there's a lot of crap outside that can get tossed around so it still won't be much of a picnic.

    I'm not going to get too worried until I see the forecast they put out tomorrow.

    We have tornado warnings now. Main force of the storm is about 18 hours away.

    Take care as everyone else has said.
    I haven't been crunching lately since I have been staying with the gf and couldn't watch the rigs.

    Hope everyone is safe or was safe during the Hurricane.

    I just got back from the Hospital, had some really bad stomach aches/cramps, everything shows okay, but they just sent me away with some pain meds. Have to go to a gastroenterologist to get checked out. Hope it's nothing serious.

    Well the hurricane is gone by. I'm running my generator for power right now. The telephone pole at the end of the street snapped off across the intersection blocking it. There's a tree across the street at the other end too, so I'm blocked in both ways. All else here is good except the tree laying on top of the back side of my garage. It punched a hole in the roof, but it's still standing. I hope everyone else that was in it's path is alright too. They say it could be 2 to 5 days before the power gets restored. Stay safe everyone.:toast:

    not too bad here. no power outages except for the quickies (1 second) that usually mean they're working on another part of the local grid. NJ PSE&G really is pretty amazing. I have to give them a huge amount of credit. There's a hurricane thread on GN that includes reports from a couple TPU'ers in Taiwan about a typhoon that recently hit the island.

    my basement flooded and overflowed into the garage. The house is built into a hillside and the basement is just a couple of inches lower than the garage. This was the first time it's ever overflowed and man did it do it in spades. Water was gushing from under the basement door and running in a literal rivulet out the garage door. Some wild shit.

    All the trees near the house have been removed in recent years but there are still 2 lovely shade trees in the front yard that are close enough to cause damage so those were a bit of a worry. Fortunately we never got any serious sustained winds. I don't know what the actual readings were but the forecasts were all for winds of less than 40mph - although I'm sure there were some much higher gusts.

    All in all, considering it was a direct hit from a hurricane, things went pretty well. I haven't tried to go out on the roads so I don't know how things look beyond my front lawn, but I'm a pretty happy camper.

    Glad all you guys are hanging in there with the storm!

    A little monkey told me that this jellyrole guy fired up the i7 again for some WCG action.

    Really glad you guys are okay, that's what matters the most, the rest is just material and can be fixed/replaced. Glad to see you guys posting! Best of luck getting back up to normal! :toast:

    I wanted to give folders/crunchers first shot at my i7 970 (second rig in system specs). PM me if interested. I will be listing it on the FS section in a couple days...

    Are you selling the whole rig, certian parts, or just the cpu?

    On the other note, all my rigs are back up and running. The power finally came on today at noon. I'm glad it is finally over and every thing can go back to normal. You don't realize what you have, and how easy things are until you have to go without them for 3 days.

    So I lost the Celeron 430, but gained this:

    http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1984586

    Unfortunately, I can only run it at 40% due to heat issues. This laptop is entirely passively cooled. Maybe if I had a laptop cooling pad of some sort, I could ramp it up... anyone have anything like that they could send to me on the cheap?

    My girl had something that had like a fan and you would put the laptop on top of it, but her lap top died. So I am not sure if she still has that, or if she plans on keeping it for a future lap top. I'll talk to her and see, if she has no use for it and she wants to give it away, I'll send it to you.
