    Well, talk about having a feeling. On Tuesday I ordered the parts to repair a couple of machines that went down over the summer. I had not yet seen this thread when I decided to order the parts. I don't know if I am Psychic, or Psycho ...... maybe it's a combination of both :laugh: I should...

    Have you got pie today?

    I'm kind of surprised to see I've hit the top 20 a few times lately, considering how few machines I have left these days. I have 2 desktops at home, and one desktop at work. (and the one at work .... seems to be the one that draws the most power ... for some reason .. hehe)

    WCG Daily Numbers

    The hard drive in my home PC took a crap several days ago. I ran into nothing but trouble after I replaced my old failed hard drive with a new 3GB drive and tried to install win 8.1 on it. Turns out my P.O.S. HP Desktop has, by default, "SECURE BOOT" enabled. I spent days trying to get my PC...

    WCG Daily Numbers

    Sadly my numbers will be dropping off for a few weeks. My 18 year old central air conditioning unit went out yesterday, and it's just too hot to run anything but my main PC. I only have one small single window air conditioner for a back up, so the only room in my house that has A/C is my...

    TechpowerUp's October WCG Challenge- October 16th thru 23rd, 2014

    I'm in, I even fired up a couple of core2 duo's that I just inherited this past weekend. Poor things, sitting in someone's basement just collecting dust. It won't add that many points, but it will give me a chance to see if the systems are stable and worth keeping.

    TPU's WCG Back to School Heat Challenge (8/28 thru 8/31/2014)

    I'm in. I just went back to work today (I only work during the school year these days) so I fired up the work Quad core this morning, and tonight I also fired up the other 2 crunchers I have at home. That should add 16 more crunching cores for me.
