    pat pat for contributing my 0.235% of that but I did double my 24 hour average today without completing any work... how'd that happen? I have a 2605 about to finish any second though... wow... why does my clock in VMWare say 12:12 am but [email protected] says 18:15:44? lol they were both right when I started that unit, and now only the VMWare Ubuntu clock is right... the [email protected] one is all outta wack...

    I'm just finishing ths work unit in the windows client, then that'll be turned off... I thought hitting Ctrl-C botched the current work unit... anyway, even if you wait, but I guess not. I'll give it a try. Thanks EllisD @wevsspot: The VMware thing was VERY easy... not a single hiccup... it's actually kinda cool, I'm gonna play around with several linux distros in VMWare and se what I like before I switch to one semi-permanently.

    Mine grabbed the a1 core and was working on 2653 for a couple hours before it crashed... when I brought it back up, it grabbed a 2605 and has been chuggin along since... ~24.5 minutes per 1%, with the other instance running in windows... maybe that'll go up a bit when it gets ~20% of the CPU back, lol dumb question... how do I pause it while I game? will pausing the whole VMWare session screw it up?

    I have my Virtual machine updating right now, and I'll be folding shortly. Thanks for the guides!
  10. I want an HDTV... but I refuse to pay AAFES extortionate prices... they really know they have you by the balls... large TVs are expensive here on the economy, so AAFES jacks their price up because they know noone ships packages that large or heavy to APO... Anyone have a solution? I'm looking for a 37"-42" 1080P preferably with a DVI connector...

    Hard Drive Soup

    So, I was mega careful when I left Germany in October to pack my computer up myself, I dis-assembled it, put everything in it's own padded box, and set it aside from the rest of my household goods ( to be shipped as "pro-items" so they didn't go against my weight allowance, which they did anyway, movers didn't mark it...) I was extra careful with my 6 hard drives, which were wrapped in foam, boxed, wrapped in foam again and boxed again. Nice and cozy and safe. While most of my stuff went into plastic rubbermaid bins, my computer stuff didn't because it was boxed up already... I got my household goods this week, and most of the boxes were wet. Having been almost 6 months since I've seen any of it, I wasn't worried because I knew it was all in rubbermaid bins, that is until I saw this: this is what came out: It looked like they dumped this crate in the water and put it back on the truck and let it sit... thank god all my clothes and most of my computer gear was in plastic bins... and somehow the rest of the computer boxes made it with just a little surface moisture, but all plastic bins were wrapped in cardboard, and it was all soaked and moldy... The carpeted boxes in the background are my 6x9 boxes, which I'm not too worried about, since they sound like butt in the boxes, they're better free-air. That is if the speakers aren't damaged... Why did all the junk I have make it here ok and the one thing that is truly irreplaceable get damaged? so much for safeguarding my data with a RAID array... I get full replacement value for all the damaged items, but I can't replace all that data... who knows, maybe if I give it a week to dry out I'll only have lost one drive and I can re-build my array...

    Hell yeah, I got my data... but one of these drives sounds like it's shot to .... Or all of them... I'm still claiming them... backing up data and replacing, not taking any chances!

    Hard Drive Soup

    There's no oxidation on the connectors at all... don't know what you're seeing? ust lighting in the photo I guess... It looked more like the crate sat in the pouring rain for weeks... all the stuff in plastic bins came back fine, and they're not sealed much at all... if it were submerged, it all would have been toast... I'll find out tomorrow, got everything back together finally. I would have found out tonight, but guess what I forgot to get... frackin water ^^

  20. If you google, You'll come up with a list of 4 or 5 USB floppy drives that will work... others are hit or miss as others said. It's not worth the $50 you'll spend getting one of those, just slipstream a disc... a little prep work will go a long way :-)

    Hard Drive Soup

    They actually cleaned up pretty nice... as soon as I get the rest of my rig up and going, I'll find out. I didn't have any mold on the PCB part of the drives, so fingers crossed...

    laptops and xp

    Be careful though, there were several laptops floating around that used sound cards without available XP drivers. I haven't heard anything about it for a while, so maybe the issue's resolved, but wanted to throw that out there anyway...

    Hard Drive Soup

    GOOD IDEA! Although your stuff isn't travelling over a major body of water... lol just make sure they seal your crate up completely. They HAVE to seal up any crate you have stuff in in front of you, and give you the serial numbers fromt he seals. Check them when they deliver at your destination, and if the numbers are different, raise hell!

    Ultra Suing Competitors

    as several people at engadget pointed out, there have been IBM servers with modular PSUs in them for years as well... I remember seing a few myself.
