Knowing Norton and his dedication to this twice-yearly endeavor, there has to be a good reason for the wait. I don't mind at all.
Whatever it is, I understand and accept it.
Norton hasn't logged in since 14th July, so that's at least part of the delay. I hope he's ok.

Love goes out to Norton. And the guys in this thread. I've not donated parts for a while but next time I upgrade my PC, (maybe Zen 2 and maybe a 2080ti), I'll give up a 1700x and a 1080ti.

But, that looks like it'll be well into 2019.

Cancer is a bitch.

Spoke with my dad the other day and he's been classified as having stage 2 colon cancer. He told me that my great grandpa died from colon cancer (which I didn't know) and I knew that my grandpa had a short bout with it in his late 60s (a good 25 years ago) which he was treated for and it never came back. He just celebrated his 95th birthday this past February 28th.

Dad said his doctor told him it's generally carried over in genetics. He said he was told to let me and his 3 other boys to expect to have it once they hit upwards of 50 or 60 years and to start screening at 40. Hopefully my older brother has been getting himself a PSA screening since he's almost 42 - he's alienated himself from the family for stupid ass reasons and no one has spoke to him for the past 2 years and when you try to contact him he basically tells you to F off.

Dad said his doctor is looking to move him to the front of a surgical list for a robotic surgery since he's in good overall health and a good candidate for it. Hopefully they can remove all the cancer this way before it spreads more. Here's hoping all goes well and that no chemo is needed.

Couple of things: I can donate a nominal amount of money to pay for shipping for a winner.

And does the project run in Linux? I have a couple pc's I could put it on

Yes it does.
EDIT: (there is a ton of information at https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/help/viewTopic.do?shortName=start that I recommend that you look through)
How? (These links will make sure you're on TPU's team)

After you've created an account, and assuming you're running one of the main Debian-based distributions,
Go to the software manager,
Search for BOINC and install
Launch BOINC
Here's where my memory is rather poor, so I'll just point you to this. Basically, you have to add the World Community Grid project, log into that project and the client will then run. The same steps apply: https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/how-to-getting-boinc-setup-for-wcg.93395/
BOINC has lots of ways to configure it. I don't like running a CPU at less than 100% utilization. Running fewer than max threads is okay.
Hope that helps @slackin

Guys I was just wondering if I might propose a bit of a give away from myself?

As I've got a few extra servers laying about at the moment and the possibility of more to follow, would anyone be interested in something like that?? I could spec to a degree of some ram and such to get things off the ground but depending on what people would like to have, then they could let me know? If this is ok, I'll see if I can get some pictures of the hardware in mind, post it up and we can go from there.

I can't really do a lot for people at the moment, but I thought at least this was something that might be of help rather than them being recycled and sold on or just sat in my conservatory just doing nothing at all.. I know they won't be the latest and greatest and they might be a little old in the hardware side of things but if anyone would be interested in me doing a give away, I'd be very happy to help out to such an amazing cause :)
