A bit down, but it should be going up nicely soon
Still not that bad, higher than what we were doing a month or two ago. Oh, and I'm sure numbers will go up soon.
Methinks this is mostly due to my farm now in effect
Good job everyone, let's see that 1.6 million soon
Gotta get my farm up to 100%, then I don't see why not
Me neither. I have a little trade setup that involves in more output for the team. Not sure if it'll go through so I'll keep you'll posted.
Sounds good, keep us posted
And if the Macs are all 2ghz Intel Dual Cores as I've been told, that's another 5-6k I could get going Monday
I still haven't figured out how to do a service install on OS X, that's the one thing standing in my way
Good luck with that! Maybe over at XS or OCN they might have a guide? I haven't seen one here yet.
That's what I'm going to check, if not, Google
These spend well over 90% of their time with no one logged in, so a service install is a must
It's the only way to get it to run then heh?
It's pretty easy on Windows, just select "Protected application" or whatever, and it does a service install, but I know basically nothing about OS X.
at least you know "basically nothing", I know "NOTHING!"
I'd like to know more so I can help friends w/ their issues, one of the reasons I'm probably getting a Macbook.
Maybe I'll experiment around on that first to see what I can do
I'm just not a OS X fan, at all. Great and stable OS, I just don't like it.
Nor am I, I vastly prefer Linux (Ubuntu in particular).
But quite a few of my relatives have Macs and are constantly messing things up :shadedshu
Really, how? They are supposed to be super stable and that's what I know them for, stability.
I just like the freedom of a PC.
They just change settings and have no idea how they've done so, delete programs by accident, all stupid things, but it takes me longer than I'd like to fix them because I have to re-learn each time
Hmmm, tends to happen to a lot of older folks that are not very knowledgeable about Computers. I get people who i fix their PC and they call me like two days later saying it won't boot. Then I go and it's a BIOS setting or some stupid setting. How the hell did they even get into the BIOS in the first place?
It's amazing what people who don't have any idea what they're doing can do :shadedshu
My great grandfather in particular calls me up almost weekly because he's encountered something he doesn't know how to deal with. I get almost the exact same question at least once a month :shadedshu
it happens bro, got no choice than to deal with it heh?
Pretty much, at least he's always super friendly and polite about it
Yeah, then it's ok I guess you know.
