    The 160GB drive was only identified in the BIOS setup- tried to install to Ubuntu and Win7 and neither OS could see it. Not sure what happened to it- it was a used drive that could have busted during shipping :confused:

    The 80GB was picked up by Win7 and I had it partitioned, formatted, and Windows installed in less 15 minutes. :)

    *Note- iirc I got both of these drives and another 160GB in the same shipment and this is the first one to give me a problem

    *** UPDATE- It lives!!! :D

    Norton, I had a hdd like that. I did a low level scan with something out of hirensboot cd to see if there was any problems with it. That hdd had about three dozen errors about 1/3 the way through the hdd. I partitioned out that portion of the hdd and I could then install windows to it. Although the hdd is a peice of junk as slow as a usb drive; Maybe even slower. Took overnight to install windows to it. That hdd died with my c2d 6300 system.

    Hmmm, kinda quiet this morning. Well, unless you count the Red vs. Green flame wars watering a few threads.

    Anyways.

    If there was a way to convey the need for something to change, physically...Like, if I could pull out a 'Need for Change' mood rock, and show it to someone that could change things...Mine would be too hot to touch!

    That is not to say I am unhappy, just not optimized. Like, behind this door? Hell. This door here? Life Upgrade!

    Hell is right inside the door, Life upgrade is a door to a loooong hallway!

    Or, rather, The loooong hallway is full of doors. I seemed to have wandered through one of them, and I am wondering how to get back to my hallway!

    I guess what I am trying to say, I mean that work sucks. My schedule is rotten, the chain of command is corrupted and my new job is stressing me out.

    Yea, that's it.

    Rant over. :D

    Work frequently sucks for a lot of us.... do what you can to keep building positive karma and hang in there.

    We knew that was coming.... take a break from 11/16 thru 11/22 if you can. ;)

    Some how, it did, http://http:// yadada.
    In the process of clicking on that, one got: http// yadada.

    :confused:

    MeThinks, I cancelled the link window, since it is a pop up that would not allow anything else. Opened new tab, copied URL, clicked the link button, pasted the link, hit OK.

    Apparently, when I cancelled, it actually put the default http:// on my linked, THIS, word. So, when I did it again, it added to it!

    :p

    So there!:rolleyes:

    I got 1 beta.

    I was thinking about longevity of gpu's. Like low power gpu's last longer. Like I love my old 9800gt eco. Its single slot, low power, and I don't care if I break it. Its my back up gpu. It still can play games half decently too. Say I had a power hungry dual slot 9800gtx... I would not be as happy with it for this long. I wonder if the same can apply to cpu's.

    I kind of like the idea of the more recent crossfire technology. I think the term they made for it is "Zero core" or something. Basically that in 2D mode, all extra cards are effectively turned off. Whether or not it's more efficient is another story, but it's a nice touch.

    Also, no betas for me. :(

    Got a record WU recently. Surpasses my previous record by a large margin (the previous one was 479 points) :)
