    Yup, it was $650 + whatever it will cost to ship it from CT to NC...we'll see how much that ends up being.

    Anyone have any extra CFX bridges they would be willing to part with? I was pretty sure I had three total, but I can only find one and I had sold another with a video card. I spent a lot of time last night swapping PSUs and adding a 7950 in with my 7970, only to find that I had forgotten to bring bridges home, and now I can only find one of them. :(

    I should have one. I'll know as soon as I get home. If I do, I'll ship it to you. ;)

    I'll know in about 30 minutes, going home early today :D

    Well, I got tired of issues with one rig not returning any points after several days. I tried clearing out the old WU's and resetting the project, neither of which worked, so I removed the WCG project and added it back in. Two days later it seems like it's back up near 100%, and my pie seems a little better, too.

    I keep the buffer low on my machines, at 0.2 days, just enough without running out.

    Can you crank those CPUs up to 100%?! :p

    I just checked FreeDC, and you and I are 3 pts apart :rockout: :rockout:

    I set it to anywhere from 2 to 4 days--usually 3. That way I have enough work to last a weekend if we have network issues or I'm out of town---of if I'm forgetful and forget to plug the ethernet cord back in (mostly this) :eek:

    Crank those CPUs up to 100% Make them scream!

    Yeah, I will do it this winter, right now, room temp is stable at 26C. When I do gaming on 1 rig, i do get up to 28C really fast. Summer isn't the best time to run my rig at 100% :/

    I do not have A/C in the basement :( but this winter, I have 2 comp + freezer in that room, no need to use the heater, and I might put the fan to bring heat somewhere else in the basement. so 100% will be nice :D

    Server might not run 100%, as it hold a CSS server, so might put like 60-80%

    LOL, thanks! :laugh:
    It took me awhile to find a decent one that I liked and was decent quality. Now, I'm off to find the next one :toast:

    Would really help if:

    - I knew more about Ubuntu (this has 12.04 LTS)... true noob :shadedshu

    - Previous owner removed his user/account info/password from the machine and shut down F@H (running @ startup) :banghead:

    I moved a monitor downstairs and got the rig started and running but need to resolve the above issues and dig for the back of my router to reconnect the downstairs LAN cable (borrowed the port for something else) :eek:

    At this point I'm thinking it may be better to setup Ubuntu on a spare HDD and start from scratch with a fresh install.

    Getting a little late to mess with it tonight so I'll tackle it again tomorrow afternoon ;)

    I find I do my best work when it's late, I'm exhausted, and i've had several drinks :D

    jk, I don't really recommend that, and I don't have any useful info, as I've never used ubuntu, sorry. But I do hope that you get it ironed out very soon :toast:

    Well I straightened out the LAN cable and downloaded Linux Mint so we're getting a little closer. Got the heating pad cooking my back for awhile and watching The Fighter (good movie btw!)

    I'll put Mint on a spare HDD and give it a shot tomorrow- everything should go ok ;)

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Or you could load ubuntu 13.04, load vid driver, and apt get cinnamon. :toast:

    I know I don't stop by this thread to often anymore...
    Just wanted to let all my crunching buddies know that the wife and I are heading to the hospital to have our first child (boy). We are both excited and hope/pray that all goes well. Man my life is really going to change:)
