Pushing it to the max currently. Finally got myself to stop gaming daily. Two days sober. I know I have a lot of rig maintenance to do once this challenge is over. The lady is doesn't like computers being all out in the open where they are anymore.

We put the call out, the Team stepped up- new and old Team members worked together and we pulled our normal daily totals up 30-50% to reach that level

Absolutely. During these times, we really put forth the effort, and it feels great to do so.

My wife, for one, hates having the 3rd pc and having it run all the time, but it feels great to have had it up for the Challenge. I can't do it 24/7/365 due to restraints, but for the limited time it works out; yet that's just one pc added.

We should all feel good about the work we do. Even if we don't put out crazy ppd like Ion, Vinska, Buck, Norton, and those high leaders, we are part of the team, a terrific team. Team TPU is made up of a lot for of awesome members!

:clap: :clap: for all our hard work! :clap: :clap:

I had to endure the endless blah blah of a 65 year Cuban man, my dad, complain about his power bill yesterday. I am running 3 laptops at 100% and no gaming. I ended up just paying for the entire thing, I cant wait to go back to my own place. I keep saying to myself, soon...soon...soon....soon...soon ....

100% like that, with the loud Cuban voice too.

He says I am not Cuban, I was born there. I am soft spoken and really white. I am staying here until he is better, he had a minor heart attack about 5 months ago. Then back to Tulsa I go to move back to Vegas. Weird I fit in Tulsa more then I do in Vegas. Tulsa has a lot of retired Americans and a very little Hispanic community. Vegas has much better food, cheaper too.

Please note to everyone, its not vulgar. Its a Cuban expression. Each language has its own expressions or sayings.

Cubans like to say "chico" a lot-mean mean like "guy". Or "hermano", which means "brother".

I'll have to fallback on the 1065t for a week or more, can only spare 200w or so before getting into the next price bracket. :banghead: and I ran 3 200w PCs for the challenge. The 1065t uses 165w when crunching and doesn't represent such a big drop.

"Que coño hizo chico?" is like "what the heck you did boy?"

Coño does mean pussy in some most contexts though. :toast:

It's all good guys. I had a good feeling about your conversation. I was just having a little fun. No need to defend yourselves, if anybody was Vulgar here, it was Me!!

I sincerely apologize to all the Mods and Women and Pussies that may have taken offense.

oh ok, I dont understand sarcasm very well in really live, even less on the internet.

I kinda consider myself like "Dr sheldon cooper" on the show 'the big band theory". Minus the PHD, the huge gang of smart friends, and the nice big apartment, oh and the tall height.

I sincerely apologize to all the Mods and Women and Pussies that may have taken offense.
Yeah we better get back on topic before the hammer comes down on us :oops:


So one more day of challenge time left.... ;)

oh ok, I dont understand sarcasm very well in really live, even less on the internet.

I kinda consider myself like "Dr sheldon cooper" on the show 'the big band theory". Minus the PHD, the huge gang of smart friends, and the nice big apartment, oh and the tall height.
Yeah, digital sarcasm isn't always easy to discern. :laugh:

I'll have to fallback on the 1065t for a week or more, can only spare 200w or so before getting into the next price bracket. :banghead: and I ran 3 200w PCs for the challenge. The 1065t uses 165w when crunching and doesn't represent such a big drop.






"Que coño hizo chico?" is like "what the heck you did boy?"

Coño does mean pussy in some most contexts though. :toast:
Coño in Cuba is more of a "dammit". They always use it. But yea it can mean other things to some people. Even I use it in person with some people. My Cuban does come out sometimes.
