    We are lacking some furniture to make this place home....I'll donate this, [​IMG] to start with. The big comfy couch....:laugh:

    One thing the team here needs to realize, and a few of the folks at the thread I read today at RRR, is that crunching a stable rig is about as exciting as watching a granite mountain erode. (Note that this is MUCH slower than watching paint dry, or grass grow.)

    At XS, we talk about such things as scragging sheep, sail rabbit pie, Fart Plumes coffee, Cyber's still, just to pass the time and have some fun. The good news is that our rigs and farms are so stable, we can do this. XS is also in a postion that we are a long way away from taking the #2 worldwide spot, and have no one even close to threating our #3 spot in the world. What is missed here, and perhaps at RRR, is that this should be fun too. Don't take crunching, or yourself, so seriously that you don't have fun. After all, you paid for the hardware to play in this space, right?

    @ Baleful from RRR, good on you for posting up in the TPU WCG section. I am also very happy we made the criteria here for getting a sub forum. TPU is an "up-and-coming, dog-in-the-race". I have no doubt the horsepower is here. The more folks that crunch, the better the world becomes....:) Whether we catch your team or not, I hope you grow your membership at the rate TPU seems to be growing theirs...

    As a side note, to everyone, quite frankly, I do have some trouble sorting out what is internet posturing vs. a real "call-out". That's my problem, not yours... :confused: In the Pac NW, we just roll.......I say what I really mean, all the time, anywhere. I tend to be very careful with my words because of it. :banghead: I'm my own worst enemy.....:laugh:


    Regards,
    Bob
     
    Baleful and Paulieg say thanks.

    If you want to do that you can, but its got to be in the General Nonsense section.

    Maybe start your own thread there, for all the WCG crunchers to go and chat. "The WCG Lounge" or something

    :toast:

    My point was that we tend to go OT more than a "serious", single topic section does. We are also more serious and on point than any section you will find on this forum, when the question comes down to getting a cruncher running. The point of my post was not really about chatting, but about camaraderie. A needed part of a strong team. The "TPU WCG Team" thread demonstrates this. This sub forum is a way to help out our progress. There should be a place for the "cheerleading" to take place, otherwise, what's the point of the sub forum?

    Sincere Regards,
    Bob

    You must be kidding. Gotta go with real NY style pizza from a Bronx hole in the wall. Best pizza in the world. I'll take that and a Saranac Black and Tan...even though it's only 9:30am here :laugh:

    And you must have an affection for mold. Even though I'll spare you the scorn of presuming our place of residence, since I do live in NYC, I'll still shove anyone who prefers anything to Papa Johns into such a hole in the wall. I know very well the rustic feel, and unfortunately taste of no-name-brand roach-infested upper-Manhattan pizza joints, and I have to admit.. if you like that, let alone prefer it over the perfection that is Papa Johns.. I'm not sitting on a couch with you :laugh:

    Forget furniture. If you wanna draw a crowd strippers and beer is the ticket.

    I like the couches you guys added. The beer and hole-in-the-wall pizza sounds good to me too...

    I came across this from the neighbors trash pile the other day. I'll toss it in here until we get a better one...

    Gotta have a coffee table to set the beers on, and to put your feet up...It's also something the strippers can stand on...:laugh::toast:
