    We have a bad one about to hit us- man is it getting dark and windy atm. I live near a small airport and two small planes landed less than 5 minutes ago.... pilots are probably glad to have their planes on the ground.

    May shut down for a bit if the thunder/lightning gets any worse.

    Man, look at those times! :(
    [​IMG]

    Getting back to my daily home proved to be a big dip in output. :S
    Desktop's down, and my laptop is situated a bit hot, so had to reduce output, and shut it down at night, since it's in the room I sleep in. :(

    Good news, everyone! I needed a power supply for a while for my server with the 3.5GHz Athlon II, and I thought I'd just swap out the cx600 from the machine in my closet, which I can't use right now. If the power supply fixes the problem with that system freezing, as I think it will, it will be running WCG 24/7 totally uninterrupted, safe cpu power used up by mere quake servers and my phone, which won't be much. It generally got around 1100PPD once it got up to speed.

    Well, got the ole 4x4 system running and installing Windows Server 2008 R2 now!!!!

    Some may have known that I have been having a ton of issues with this system now for some time. Ended up being some baaaaaaaaad memory! Some that I actually purchased from a fellow TPU member well over a year ago.

    None the less, I will have 16 cores a crunching added to my current 12. Of course it will probably not compete with the i7's I have now, but hell, an extra 16 cores has got to help; right? :laugh:

    Just thought I'd mention that I got a job at MPW Industrial Services. Mostly what I'll be doing is cleaning up at a steel mill. $11.22 an hour, roughly 20-30 hours a week, and lots of room to grow with this company. I am no longer a minimum wage grunt pushing carts around all day at a grocery store. I might have some spare cash... but not much room to expand my crunching farm. I'm pretty much limited to 2 computers here, though I have a 3rd almost ready to go whenever I have a spare $200 or so to spend on a case, psu, and memory. I still wouldn't be using it here, but it would be ready to go if my situation changes. The most I can do is upgrade the Athlon II system, with efficiency and heat in mind first. Maybe an 1155 i3 or something. Probably wouldn't mess with it at all.

    I tried doing a fresh install on the drive but it still won't show up. I find that odd cause thats the 2nd rig not wanting to work after it moved from a bench to a case. I try to use the bench first for a few days to make sure its running properly before going into a case just incase this happens. I don't know what the issue is. I have another hdd coming eventually which i'll use to fresh install that rig. The other rig not working may be due to now gpu even though that shouldn't be an issue cause it has onboard. so I don't know whats wrong with that one.

    Put the entire system on the "bench" and check it again Pops. If it works fine then I would have to say there is something wrong with the case man. Have not seen it a bunch, but I have seen cases that "short" out systems. Who knows why.

    thats what i don't know. the case was my old main case so i know it worked fine. heck one of the other rigs that use to run in there, I pulled out and stuck on a bench but it went into a diff case and won't work either. So i have 2 seperated rig in 2 diff cases not wanting to work. I already got all the power wires and what not sip tied in and cable management done. I think the hdd just went completely dead. I have one coming one day but not sure when. I may pull the other non working rig out and stick on the bench and see whats wront with it soon. just can't get myself to doing it yet as that one is all tied in also.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I am going to be the first one to give a guess on ppd Stinger. I am going to say once it's spooled up ppd will be between 4 and 5k. Thats just a off the wall guess I could be way off.
