    Bad news, for some reason the CruncherX2 won't post now. Not sure why. I'll get it figured out tonight.

    Edit- Think I goofed the video drivers. Got it running off the onboard atm. I'll get it handled tonight.

    Clean reinstall should do the trick?

    Heads up team. I'm going out so now updates from me unless I have realy bad luck.

    F150 that could still be a glitch from a few days back. You just got the power back so I think that may be it. For more info check out the daily numbers thread and go back a few days.

    Decided to follow the links on the new BOINC clients and found something pretty interesting. Not sure if anyone else has seen this. The FightAIDS@Home project published a PDF recently that basically gives an update on their research.

    A 5-10 minute read more or less (depends how many things you want to wikipedia as you read along :laugh:) It's quite cool to actually see what results they're getting from our crunching efforts. If you fancy a read, the link is below:

    BAD NEWS :(

    The card I was suppose to get from twilyth is lost some where. It "SAYS" it was delivered yesterday at 1:51PM but We were home at this time working on our house and the delivery woman put mail in the mail box and did not drop off any packages. I dont see how they can say its delivered when she only had letter mail WTF!

    That seriously sucks dude. It might be because of Veterans day. They goofed on my package that had 3 day and it didn't get here until yesterday.

    I hope so cause my wife said it was the same woman that always delivers our mail and she knows us by name (we live in a small town). We have even had mail that had the wrong address but still get delivered because they knew our name. I hope it was just a screw up on their part and it get delivered tomorrow. I need that card to finish my cruncher.

    More bad news, Been on the phone off and on this morning with USPS, Its finally conformed that the delivery lady that worked Saturday did not deliver a medium flat rate box to my house and they do not have it in the post office. Looks like its lost in the postal system somewhere. They are still figuring out how the tracking info could have gotten updated when there was no package delivered.

    This is a very sad day :(

    **UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!**

    Praise jesus! I just got a call from USPS and they found it! The woman that worked my route saturday told them she only had one medium flat rate box that day and it was delivered else were so today one of the employees went over to that persons house and asked if it was their package and come to find out it was mine. she said the numbers were dangerously close to each other and being in a hurray she left it on that person porch! USPS has the package back and they are delivering it as we speak!

    HELL TO THE YEA!!

    Awesome news, but they do that way too often. My 6850 magically showed up after five days of no one knowing where it was. :eek:
