    Had to hook up my hot spot the get the Beta to finish downloading, because the 802.11g router here at the bar is shared with the bandwidth hogging electronic jukebox.

    But, it is now running! Only an hour and a half later, should have hooked it up sooner!

    I am wondering, since my two USB2 slots are filled with my hotspot and phone charger, what would happen if I plugged my Logitech mouse thingy into the USB3 I have unused, at the moment. Not even sure it would fit?

    Any thoughts?

    It appears like it would fit...will it ef up the wifi connector? over power it, or something?

    It's backwards compatible. If it fits, it will work.

    I got some of those too. I am wondering if the number at the end of the WU relates somehow back to a version of BOINC. The FA@H Vine WU's in my queue are 7.06 and my client is 7.0.64, which is the client that was current when the Vina WU's were released. Makes me think these might be a regular unit (if they pass BETA) when the 7.2.2X client comes out.

    Just speculation, but it's probably more of a coincidence than anything.

    I thought so, but was a little leery about trying it. Just wanted to bounce it off the knowledgeable base of TPU! Anyways, it's a non-issue now that my phone is fully charged. :D

    Seems to be running fine. Personally, I think the numbers at the end of the WU are unrelated to the BOINC version and simply generated by the WU for their own purposes.

    Sigh. My mobo in my dorm room rig has been stable for only a few weeks. Again some failed units in BOINC (other projects than WCG), again the NB and CPU clocks were a bit "off" with a few MHz. And now a Gentoo installation that used to work hangs once I start X and XFCE (or at least it does no longer respond to the KB and mouse).

    Since the CPU (E8400) and the RAM seem okay to me, I suppose it is time to find some (used) LGA775 mobo? I could use this as an excuse to upgrade but because I am not willing to sped more than 80ish euro on the CPU I do not think that that is worthwile. So I guess I will make a WTB thread. Please shoot me a PM if you got offers (please keep in mind I am from the Netherlands).

    I just double checked the device profiles. I have everything under the home profile which I have every project but CEP2 checked.

    That's odd. And yet you're still getting CEP2 WUs? What if you assign it to the default profile, as a test?

    First BETA ran in just under 4 hrs. less than half the estimated time. I wonder if the next one will do as well.

    I found this mega deal on E-bay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Core-...Hz-6MB-LGA1155-CPU-cooler-paste-/181251251628

    Any red flags? I know it is very cheap, but the guy is in good standing so, I don't know. He does not do returns though so that may be a bad thing in case I wouldn't be able to get that CPU "24/7" stable.

    I think I might have a look on saturday to see where it has ended up at. There is no "buy now" price so it might as well get up by auto-bids to 60ish or more.

    If I can, I always wait for the last 5 seconds to do an ebay bid. I usually get them that way.

    Pardon me, need to vent...

    For two days I have brewing.

    Work has been a nightmare of enormous shit, pardon my French, now and continuously throughout this post.

    The level of incompetence, under staffing and complete ignorance of the hell it is causing me, by those in charge, is going to come to a tumultuous end. Soon.

    Be it by vocal interaction or physical violence, is anyone's best guess.

    I am either going to be a valued employee or, possibly jailed.

    I am not faking this. I am incensed with the current situation and it is gonna change, one way, or another.

    I can be reasonable, with reasonable people, but I am also a trained asshole with enough street cred to scare the shit out of most anyone that dares me. I am also a trained fighter, 5 wins in the ring, including an honorary Black Belt for a TKO of some Karate champ.

    Point is. I am, surely, sick of the current situation. I hope I find some sort of channel of communication, lest things get stupid.

    I find myself with a list of what to lose. It is short.

    Sorry, I am, obviously a bit out of sorts. Thank you for letting me vent.

    I love this place, and this Team, and crunching for a better cause. I am pursuing a welding career, at school, which is on hold due to lack of funds. There's the 'Pro' list.

    Burn the rest.:wtf::twitch:

    General nonsense is TPU's sister site for non tech related discussions. A Marxist and I got a little heated once and were told we should move there. Pretty much the same community over there.

    My wife didn't like the General Nonsense site when she found the Official Hot Girl thread. I don't remember how it came about exactly; I think she was going through my phone and saw that thread or the history.... Women :shadedshu

    If I sold my phenom 965 my i3-2100 and my msi p67 gd53 I could get a fx8320 which would be about the same ppd as the two sold cpu's. All I would need is one psu. I think I got a new plan...
