Nice work team!
Sorry about the late numbers--went and fell asleep before I realized that I hadn't gotten them done yet
The Half-Dome at Yosemite:
Good job again guys! Let's see if we can hit 3m over the coming days!
Mt Rainier, Washington, United States:
My new record - 441.7 points!
Full info window here
Hmmm, I am only getting around 330 pts. They must like you better!
No, not really. Such high scoring WUs are tad rare. Most CEP2 WUs get me between 200 and 350 points.
Pretty darn close to three million again--sweet!
Sierra Mountains, California:
Some good #'s
Both my rigs, meek as they may be, seem to be chugging along without any error or invalid results. The Athlon is still spooling up I think. The Q6600 is probably at full speed but since I use it for other things... :/
Not our finest day, but certainly not a bad one either!
Plitvice Lakes, Croatia:
Damn, 12th place on the 12th? Once again, my day sucked. This is how it started.
Then, I get a text from my Boss. "Are you coming in today? You were scheduled for 9am."
That was at 10 am.
Got there at 11, find out almost immediately that my Boss, who I like, has been transferred. Today was his last day. New boss? Seems alright, so far anyways. Then he leaves and all hell breaks loose. It's OK, I'm used to it. Got through it and then discover a problem with inventory and the new shipment, received today. I figured it out, at the very last minute. Then raced back downtown, 7 miles by bicycle, to keep my promise to pay the bikeshop, for the tire replacement I HAD to get.
So, here I am. At the bar, hoping like hell that this is the last of it!!! Please, please, beer gods, SAVE ME!!
P.S. I also sliced my finger, real good, and added a new burn to the Jiffy Lube collection growing on my hands and arms. GREAT day (said in my most annoyed sarcastic tone).
@Arjai- you do realize that you linked to post #12 in that thread.
Tomorrow's the 13th so enjoy and remember:
A pint at the bar is always 16 oz.
Yea, Thanks for reminding me. I was unwilling to add that, due to the awesome bitch session I had already wrote. So, yea, 12 gets me again.
The best thing about now? In two hours it will be the 13th, BTW, my lucky number! Crazy, I know, but, entirely true. I can go on, and on, about how 13 has been good to me. I will save you, and all of you, from that diatribe. You will just have to trust me, I have a long history, starting from way back in sixth grade, where it first came into focus.
Good night, I am going to lose today in the bottom of a beer, and possibly a whiskey...Makers Mark whisky (which is how the Kentucky family that makes it, spells it).
Great job last night--2.8 million is a very impressive number!
Yosemite National Park:
Not incredible, but certainly an entirely solid day for the Team!
Lake Bled, Slovenia:
Another entirely solid day for Team TPU!
Svartevatnet, Gloppen, Norway:
The calm before the Storm!
Neuschwanstein Castle, Schwangau, Ostallgau, Bavaria, Germany:
And up we go!
Lake Watson, Arizona:
Good job tonight guys!
Laguna de los Tres, Argentina:
Great job guys!
Heating things up for the warm up challenge
Great job tonight guys--the pre-challenge is really boosting us up!
Tsugaru Straights, Japan:
Well, we slipped a bit today, but we're still doing a fine job, and now the urgency of the challenge is behind us as well
Heaven Lake, North Korea:
And we've bounced back up again--a grand job for the Team!
Svartsen Glacier, Holandsfjord, Norway:
So hey guys I'm Back! ... well not really
I've made it to the UK and I cant wait to get crunching again - There is just one problem - I need a new rig... and the internet... and a job XD
So, Anyone here looking to hire ?
I'm half joking and half serious to be honest - The sooner I can get working the sooner I can get back on the team - I'm looking for pretty much anything that offers in the general IT line of work - I'm good with system building, maintenance, installations, troubleshooting, sales and support - I've a wide range of experience including PABX installations (Telephone systems) and (Junior) Site/Project management for MTN (Africa's biggest cellular provider) managing both existing sites, implementation of new ones and all of the affairs that go with that from a property point of view.
I'm not looking for anything fancy - and I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty - just something to get me going.
Down the line I plan on acquiring some Cisco qualifications and moving in the networking direction, beginning with CCENT / CCNA. (I already have the study material to begin working on that in my own time - so I'm free for full day work)
I realise this may not be the best place to start job seeking , but if anyone is interested I'm currently in Bolton and available to the general Greater Manchester area UK.
So if anyone is interested please give me a shout we can get in touch directly and take it from there
Then hopefully I can get a nice shiny new Haswell and start posting some numbers again! Wish me luck team XD
