Nothing has came up yet for grabs?

Well, that's a bit of a disappointment
Still great, but I was hoping for 1.8.
Yep, it's still a pretty decent output, considering the size of our team, but 1.8 would have been rather nice
Yea, I had just set my goal to 1.8 but looks like we can't do it everyday.
Some days are better than others
Not yet. Does anyone have a 4 pin to 8 pin adapter. They got them on the Egg if no one does.
We need to get above 1.8 million again; and then 2.0 million
Get those rigs crunching~
Not me bro, sorry
I've been trying to bring the E6550 back online, but my parents keep saying no "It'll make it unstable or something" :shadedshu
What? That doesn't even make sense....
Exactly. One of the HDDs recently died (we had RAID1 set up, so nothing was lost), and my parents (my mom in particular) is worried that it might make the computer unstable and die. I pointed out to her that I run WCG on my laptop with no issues, and she said that I'm welcome to do whatever I want with my computers. I'm going to try asking her again today, I've done 3 hours of yard work this weekend thus far, so I feel that I have a decent chance
WCG has nothing to do with a failing hard drive... Your mom sounds as ignorant as one of my customers. (No offense.)
Yep, I know, I've pointed it out to her, but it's her computer so it's not like I can just do that. She'd remove it if I just installed without asking her first :shadedshu
Sounds as bad as how my mom is.
She tried to claim a virus on her laptop came from a forum website that my friend here in Oregon owns... :shadedshu Yet when I scanned her computer it was a Trojan that I found came from her work email.
Although I'm pretty sure she's bi-polar. Not that it's my problem since I moved out when I was 17.
Well, I talked to her again, and she gave me permission to set WCG back up with the CPU usage at 80%...so the E6550 is back up and running again (finally!), I'm not sure how much it'll be on, but anything is definitely better than nothing
Glad to hear it Ion. Ever little bit counts. I have to try and convince my GF again to crunch with her Laptop...
NP CP. I have to order a few things from the Egg anyways. Ran out of TIM, and Im looking for a new gfx now that I sold my 5770.
uh oh... bipolar people can imagine things up to strong hallucinations,including having hearing you saying bad things to them,even if you havent even speaked a word,when they are manic, or sink in deep wish of dieing, and sleep the whole day,when theyre depressive.that can change in minutes, hours, or days, and is totally random. If it really was that, then im glad for you, that you moved out. That is a great pressure and to live with such affected humans!
She normally was bad in the afternoons for no reason. My mom's side of the family is Mormon, and sadly, thinks doctors are crazies and that medicine is bad. (That side of the family is a bit extreme.)
My father's side of the family is mostly normal. Other than the fact that my dad has PDSD from when he served in the Marines...
Anywho, good news is my GF has agreed to letting her laptop crunch again.
oh nah, youre surely didnt had it better than me.. and i thought i was doomed, due to my 2 strange and egoistic parents... thats 2 things kind of hard to deal with for you, topped with extreme religious behavior of 50% of the rest of the family... you are probably much toughened up to it today, when that stuff isnt that near to you anymore...
that surely wasnt easy to take,i believe
Yeah, it was an experience. That's for sure. I still check in with my dad at least 3 times a week. Sadly my parents divorced when I was in 5th grade. and things got worse after that. My Mom started yelling at my brother and I instead of fighting with my dad like they used to, she even smacked us around now and again for the smallest crap.
My father has PDSD and is a skitzophrenic. He's due for what's going to be his 7th knee surgery here in a bit for prosthetic knees.
I've had an interesting 20 years of life so far. Makes me wonder how the next 20 are going to be. Anyways, if anyone wants to hear more about my life's story thus far, feel free to PM me, I don't want to clutter up this thread with it too much.
Bad news- Won't be crunching with my main rig at 100% during the day when I'm home anymore. My room has been heating up too much but it's not hot enough in the house to justify turning on the AC.
I don't know if you've tried opening the windows and putting a box fan in one? I do this when it gets too warm and it helps quite a bit
Way ahead of ya. Got a ceiling fan and a box fan going now. Best part is I can't hear my computer's fans over them, thus I'm happy. (Funnily enough, the white noise of fans running at night helps me sleep.)
