    Oh snap, my current avatar might be against the rules :eek:
    "No sexually suggestive avatars or signatures are allowed." –W1zzard
    Meanwhile, the magazine depicted in my avatar may or may not be considered sexually suggestive. IDK...
    Better changed it NOW, lol! [and I did!]

    Thanks for pointing me there, HammerON – I was not aware of this rules post :shadedshu:

    W1zzard just added it back to the forums a couple weeks ago. After the switch to the new forum layout the guidelines were missing:(

    i messed up big time lol i installed updates and restarted the computer without suspending the client and so when it said this app is preventing you from restarting i clicked restart anyway now i got invalids. now i got results going through verification. its only some of them but i think its because i interrupted all 8 threads its the mcm1 results.

    Well, while you were gone, you were killin' it in the pie charts every day, but i'm sure you already knew that. Thanks for all your help :respect:
    Let us know when we can reciprocate the favor for the next big folding challenge ;)
