    Well guys I am back after a long weekend in the woods. Last night I got time to test the new router from tigerdirect and it was DOA. All it would do was boot loop and even with a reset it still boot looped. I am gonna contact tiger and give them an ear full. Edward PMed me while I was away with a list of routers he has so hopefully we can work something out to get me back up strong. I see my one 2600K and 5770 is still going strong at work!

    You're really having the worst luck with these routers :(
    One of the things I love about the WRT54G routers is that they last bloody well forever. Mine is from ~2004 and is still going strong :toast:

    Yea I bought this WRT54G back in 2005 BNIB from wal-mart and it lasted through two deployments to iraq until now. It works but needs to be constantly rebooted (1-3Hrs)

    Our old one finally died recently--but I picked up another one, and it's running Tomato and serves me great.


    Newegg's tracking hasn't updated, but I should get my HD7770 today :toast:

    I am interested to see if there is really a 25% performance increase over 6200 series. Chips won't be affordable until they hit the used/resale market, so there will be some wait involved.

    You need the latest version from the BOINCstats website but that version won't allow for multiple gpu wu's on Windows 8- manofthem tried it and ended up going back to Windows 7 to get it to work correctly... iirc

    Hmmm and I guess running Bionc in Virtual box would be out of the question.

    My BOINC keeps holding on to my WUs. Apparently communication between me and the server isn't working well. The event log keeps saying stuff like this:

    Has anyone else been having trouble connecting?

    Might be connection issue. I get these regular.

    EDIT:
    Just checked WCG forum - no maintenance warning.

    Well, Newegg lied to me :shadedshu :mad:
    Apparently UPS is taking their sweet time with my HD7770. I'm hoping it shows up tomorrow (although Newegg said today)

    Friend of mine convinced me to come on over. Added half dozen machines/servers to the team. I Have a few more to re-install with Ubuntu as the one seems to run it great. Will try to get more of the work machines into the mix. :) Anyways figured I'd pop in and say hey in here.

    Couple years newer. That is the lower end one. Work didn't want them after upgrading for virtualization on a larger scale. :respect:

    Well the 2u is more of a db box. Should still do well.

    Thanks! Pays to work for industry at times. Was looking for a good use for them. Maybe I can convince the Mrs to allow me a rack, maybe if I move em closer to the bedroom ;)

    Well, some bad news. The University has instructed us to "turn off and unplug all appliances" over Thanksgiving Break, and our RA is going to enter our rooms to check this (among other things). I'm gonna try leaving all of my computers on, and hope that the confusion of two systems not in cases & assorted fans and wires will terrify my technologically-challenged RA. Worst case scenario, she turns them off, and I'm down to just ~4k PPD or so for that week. But I hope that doesn't happen :shadedshu
