    Yes it is a sprint aircard. Have you seen the charge for going over 5GB? It is like 5 cents per MB so you practically double the bill for using 1GB more. Crazy.

    Glad I don't have to put up with that while at school. I burn through that really fast here. 5GB would last me, oh.... 3 days? If I was going easy.

    The cool thing is that it means that there is going to be a new server going in. With the beating that XS takes on a normal day, it probably isn't a bad thing to have a new setup going in. If we're lucky it will help improve the performance...

    Damn I hope I still have my Custom User Title :p

    That's a helluva thing to go through...I hate SW to begin with...imagine knowing what the hell you are doing and still having issues...that would piss off a saint.

    Here's wishing Fugger STRENGTH in the face of mounting adversity.

    My friend, some things I've learned over the years.
    Sometimes things happen for reasons that aren't apparent to us.
    At those times I've learned that it's wise to sit back and wait to see how things play out.
    I've also learned the value of loyalty.
    You and I have never met but know that if I saw people beating you up I'd be in it in a heartbeat to help you. Why? You are my friend and teammate. That black and white to me.
    Logic tells me that some part went bad over the weekend and Charles had to wait till Monday to order whatever it was.
    Now I'm not a religeous person but I do have faith in people.
    I met Charles and I can't see him just folding up shop without telling anyone.
    Just not his style.
    Now I do agree that he should have put out more info to all the guys..
    I think this will have a happy ending and there has been one plus for all of us.
    We got to meet some good people here at TPU.
    I think we all owe them a big :toast:for their friendship and hospitality.
    My thanks to all the guys here. Been my pleasure to meet you.
    DaMulta says thanks.

    You don't know these guys..Pie rules.
    Some would kill for a slice of Cherry Pie.
    I had one just once and not even for a whole day and if I told you what I had to do for that you'd laugh..:laugh:

    Just got this from the HWBot forum;
    Gautam posted this:
    "Okay, I just got off the phone with Fugger. I know jack about databases, so I don't have a firm grasp on the situation. First of all, it seems like the database of the forums in their current state are somehow erroring. The database isn't starting up. The database import takes 2 days, and Charles has done this several times over the past week already as you might have guessed, running into problems ever time. Normally that 2 days should've been the upper bound on the downtime. I think he also said that the original hard drive SAS array got busted somehow. He's still trying to work through all the problems, as clearly plenty of things went wrong. Right now the compromise solution he's thinking of is putting up a backup of the forums while he does this, but the backup is from about a month ago, so the data won't be current..."

    +1 here. When we "get back home", I will still visit over here. I've been looking around and there's a lot of good folks here too. I'm thinking I will contribute a few quads for a while to the TPU WCG team. As a thank you for the hospitality. Don't know about all of you, but I like cold beans. :laugh:

    I checked the TPU WCG team thread here and that is apparently where Rammie went. He's cranking in some points for the TPU team.

    A hearty :toast: to W1zzard and the group here at TPU.

    Regards,
    Bob
    Triprift, DaMulta and CyberDruid say thanks.

    This actually seems like a pretty cool forum. I'm up really late sometimes so I need more than one good spot to check in as things can get pretty slow.
    DaMulta says thanks.
