    I'm sorry to say I have to put both of my crunching rigs on hold. Today as I was walking out of my local grocery store to my truck and I noticed my truck parked across the street in the second parking lot with no window on the passenger side and I thought to myself "I didn't leave the windows rolled down did I?" As I got closer I noticed the glass everywhere and the window shattered with some tid bits of class sticking up from the door panel... First they tried to pick my lock with something and then they broke it and dented the door a little so then they broke my window with a rock(found it on the floorboard) and stole my CD/DVD player with flip out screen and ripped out my 2 10" JL subs in the back seets and left the AMP... So unfortunately I have to put my rigs on hold and sell my good phenom II for some extra $$$ to help pay for the damages. Today definitely wasn't the best day ever :cry:

    Heres a pick of the door lock, you can see me almost ;) It's a bit dirty too

    The top 50 is only like 3 months away for this team if you keep the current pace so it's very realistic. In time, as the team matures, no goal will be out of reach. Great crunching TPU!

    dammit man , I hate thieves. I had my car broken into last year, its a horrible feeling. You work your ass off and have some pricks come and steal it from you in seconds. I hope you can get your truck fixed soon dude and wish you the best of luck. this is not an excuse to not crunch. Its a must that you fix your truck dude. Let us know if we can help in anyways :toast:

    Thank s loonym. I have always said it and i'll say it again. We have came a long way bro. Started not long ago, but we also have to thank you XS guys a lot for our success :toast:

    I hope to live the day we get to use the blue markers that Dave uses when we hit that big 7 ;)

    however, Im not interested in the body art he does with them :eek: :laugh:

    man..

    wtf...

    i just checked my machine and boinc is going nutz.

    i guess im producing bad WU's for some reason ???

    i have 60+ WU's that were completed in 5 seconds.

    machine is not OCed and doesnt even have the ability to be OCed so thats not it.

    ram and cpu both test good in another machine so thats out.

    psu tests great.

    what else? hdd? it tests fine too

    im puzzled

    Thanks for your support chicken I appreciate the thoughts :D I am stilling going to be crunching I just won't have my core 2 rig up and running yet since I have to have money going into my truck but I will still have my P4 rig and my phenom II X4 rig going unless somebody buys it(the phenom II) and then it will have a athlon 64 x2 5200+ :rockout: and still be crucning. I just need a mobo and a psu i'm so close to getting it up and running and then this had to happen :cry: But I will get the rest of the parts when I have some extra money once again. Thanks again chicken, yes it is a very horrible feeling, I just felt my gut sink down to the ground when I realized what had happened I couldn't even think..it was like a panic attack.


    Yeah thats weird Fitseries idk what the problem would be on that. Could it be internet related?

    That sucks man! I hope you sell your stuff soon, so you can afford to fix it. Damn thieves!!:mad:

    On a positive note. After nearly a week of my second i7 rig being down, it's ready to report for duty!! Both i7's and a Q6600 are locked and loaded. Top 100 here we come!! Keep up the great work guys!!

    Man, I don't know. Try running a short stability test, like LinX for 10 cycles, just to make sure the machine is stable. If it passes, I'd just reinstall Boinc, and see if that fixes it.
