    I believe he is female...no? :laugh:


    I'm just visiting this planet.

    Before this thread and posts get moderated...I'll add a whole bunch of technical shit here.

    I got BOINC client Version 6.10.58 running 6 WU's at a time.

    Will be building an Octocore (yes I put "AN" because next word is a vowel) Much to FIH's dismay...but I got a good deal from Stinger608.

    Nuff said.

    TPU rules.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I to am building another cruncher. Half "an" Octocore or if I can swing it may do another hexa core to play with my other crunchers. I have 13 cores crunching to date.

    I'm building the other half of the octocore there pardner :cool:

    running 13 cores as well, 11 ATM (locked the PII 555BE and 720BE for now). When the new cruncher is up and running with the 960T I will be at 14 cores. :toast:

    TPU rocks :D

    The difference between my 13 cores and your 13 cores is that I have some rather crappy for crunching cores mixed in. lol

    Well, thanks man. So that means you're American? I really hope you're in Wisconsin. It's my fave state for city names like OshKosh and Paddy. :twitch:

    I eventually got rid of those gremlins with some long nights fighting them. :laugh: Yea the new generation i7's can be a little tricky to maintain stable.

    Take a look at his link: http://www.overclock.net/t/1120291/solving-fixing-bsod-124-on-sandybridge-read-op-first

    It's what resolved my issues and seems to have done the trick for Chicken Patty too.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I stopped running it now. Hell I tried to kick it back up on one of my crunchers the other day and it said no new work.


    On a side note my numbers will be a tad shy today due to my x2 Ubuntu box's hard drive taking a dump in the middle of the night. Woke up to it being hard locked. Linux doesn't hard lock unless there is a major problem. Got it rebooted and bonic wouldn't reconnect to localhost. Checked the health on the hard drive and numerous bad sectors. I have replace the hard drive and reloading the os right now. It should be back to crunching within an hour or so. :rockout: But that about does it for spare hard drives. I must restock my supply.

    Dang bro sorry to hear that man. It is hard to find good deals on hard drives at the moment. I have a stack of 2.5" drives but am damn shy on 3.5" drives.

    I just can't pay the price for standard hard drives as they are badly bloated. Hard to say when the prices will drop to a reasonable price point.
