    OK, I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread for WCG members to rant about whatever is on your mind. This way we keep the crap out of the more serious thread, and we still have a place to unwind. Enjoy folks, but PLEASE keep it reasonable. I'd hate to pull out the ban stick on my WCG brothers...:laugh:

    Oh crap. Fits looking for a fight. Better watch out man. I just benched 305 lbs for the first time today. I might need to put that muscle to use. :laugh:

    I raced BMX as a kid. I still do some mountain biking, though my Gary Fisher is gathering a bit of dust.

    Yeah, it's not bad considering I only weigh 170. I'd be benching closer to 350 if I didn't take a year off of training.

    LOL. man, you must be a damn rail. My training partner is 5'5" and 220. He's a freakin horse. At his best, about 5 years ago, he benched 460 during a bench competition. His biceps are as big as my thighs. He has a hard time finding any clothes to fit him. :)

    Because it's the PS3's fault I lost my SSD drive today!

    Yes I'm passing the buck!

    I enlisted the PS3's HDD to be installed on my new machine:nutkick:

    power wise......


    i7 @ 4.2ghz with 4 threads seems to take about the same about of power as


    i7 @ 4.2ghz with 8 threads.

    my test was...

    1 month 4 threads

    1 month 8 threads.

    electric bill for 8 threads was $85

    and for 4 threads was $79

    no idea on data results though
