    Well, I've been a net loss there---I'm down about 7 G92 cards, the GTX470s, the GTX560TI448, and intermittently the HD7950. I'm hoping to get the HD7950 running stable again, but that will be all I can do :(

    I'll start folding again on the iGPU in my laptop. It's only good for maybe 1500 PPD, but it's all I've got for GPUs.

    I just put my PC to work on the GPU again for F@H, to help compensating for the transition of the Buck Nasty 4P machine to the WCG. It is "but" a Radeon HD 6670 DDR3 that is in the meantime still finishing up some DistrRTGen GPU WUs so my F@H PPD will be insignificant for ~1.5 days.

    I had to shut down my rigs today for about an hour :mad:
    A nasty thunderstorm rolled in with some insane lightning; the power went out twice, and that's when i shut them down. They're back up and running now :)

    Had two thunderstorms since friday. Instructed someone who stayed home while I was away to unplug all the network cables while it's thundering && replug them after. :)
    Had one more thunderstorm pass by just now, too...

    IDK, I just unplug all the ethernet cables (I have LOADS of those) to protect my hardware. But leave the power on.
    (BTW, over the last three years, my network switch lost 9 of its 16 slots due to lightning. One more and I'm gonna have to change it - all 7 are occupied, thus I can't pull through with just re-slotting :( )
