But you're working outdoors, getting a tan when most of us geeks are pale white! :laugh:

Are you changing jobs strictly because you hate your current one? From what I remember, construction will pay better than a retail job, unless you're management. Just curious. :)

I get payed $8.40 an hour, and hate my job. I want to work with computers and with technology in general, not step on nails and fix people's broke ass houses.

Also, I live in Oregon, there's no sunshine here this time of year, just rain. (Oh, and snow in my area tonight.)

American House building is gruesome. there is not much stone used in them, because they were never intended to be durable;)
Most german masons that start to live their, build themselves their own houses, because if they do it, and all of their city gets ripped down by a hurricane... their house is gonna stand! :D

Weather sounds similar to here,Northern Germany

just that for us it rains more than 200 days a year :) you also got snow tonight? there was some about 30km away here ;)

EDIT: WOAH, i just nearly fell of my stool!!!
the fan array i built would cost me 420$in the US or 360€ here!!!

Whoa, and now it's snowing outside. Oh and Velvet Wafer, the house I'm repairing was built in 1893 using a Sears house kit, it's about time it was remodeled.

Unless you use limestone blocks without mortar, you eventually have problems no matter what you use. My old apartment building was brick and it leaked like a sieve. Eventually the ground settles, the mortar cracks and then you have to go around and repoint all of the brick work - and even that doesn't guarantee that you're in the clear.

One of my relatives used to own an apartment building made of brick. It was a constant pain in his ass and a virtual money pit.

Wood will last forever if you take care of it. My house is wood framed but is covered with aluminum siding. The siding is nearly 50 years old and aside from being faded, is in perfect condition. When aluminum rusts, you get aluminum oxide which is the same stuff a sapphire is made of, so it's fairly durable. Also, the sapphire patina on the aluminum prevents further corrosion.

I do agree that most tract built homes are shit. The builders use the cheapest labor and material. Even if you can't see that in the finished product (and in fact you always can), you'll find out after a few years.

My house was built by a contractor for his family and he really went all out. For example, beams are normally 18-24" on center. He used 2 by 12" beams that are 12" apart from center to center. I could probably put a lap pool in my living room with no problems.

Yeah, me too - for the original method, but I don't actually care one way or the other.

I didn't follow that thread but I understand things got a little harsh. I hope there aren't too many hard feelings as a result. Collecting all of the tchotchkes like badges and what not is nice but we all know that's not what's important.

Look what was in the Mail this morning!:D







My special thanks go to GREASEMONKEY, without him i wouldnt have got anything of it!:)
i asked for a used am2 board, and what does he gives me???
A BRAND NEW 785 board, that can even support Thubans! Not even my own foxconn can do that!!!:eek::eek::eek:
Everything is there, cables flyers manuals, driver cd´s,the IO plate (the manual looks like it has been never opened), the only thing missing is the sticker, which i suppose wasnt even delivered with it:D
on top of that,when i asked him, he even added a 160gb ide drive still looking like new!
Naturally for him, he paid the shipping to germany too, which were about 45$,so together with the board (70$) and the HDD (25$ roughly) that are about 140$ a guy i dont even know paid for me... NOW THATS DEDICATIONAL SPIRIT!!!!:rockout::rockout::rockout:
Most People, even the good ones can still look up to him and his dedication
Big,Big thanks to you Grease!
may your life be long and prosper! :)

oh, christmas will be material pleasure this year. i planned the 4870x2 together with kiex, then i planned an i3, a Ph2/A2 X2, 4gb of adequate ddr 3, maybe a few 1333 ripjaws, and a new SSD, mine is probably toast since yesterday, and RMA material;)
meaning i get 2 new SSDs, one VGA, 2 CPUs, and maybe even a little more random items, like new MX2 :D

sorry about the pics, i had to dump this here early so many people see it, and i need soooo long for pictures to resize :D
i would need a tool that converts any pic i throw at it to a certain preadjusted size, is there something available?

thanks buddy, i will try to remind me of that, disabling the onboard GPU sounds perfectly logic to me, on my 790gx it also hindered OC ;)

Now that winter temps are really here, is it worth it to OC my i7 to 3.8-4.0 or should I just leave it as is? Right now 3.5ghz is only using 1.17vcore 1.12 VTT and full load WCG gets it to 51C.
I'd say go for it! See what the temps are like and if good then you're sorted. 3.8GHz seems to be the sweetspot for crunching in terms of temps/PPD on AIR.

Personally now that it's winter I find it easier to get out of bed in the morning if the room is warm. My sister has gone for a few months so tried sleeping in that room. When I woke up I wanted to stay in my Duvet and not go to work because it was so cold. Went back to my room the next day and when I woke up felt so good getting out of bed I ended up going earlier than normal to work :laugh:
