  1. pat pat for contributing my 0.235% of that :rolleyes:


    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...

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. I got mine up now too...



    man that didn't come out right....



    I got my SMP/VMWare up... I noticed beta 6 has some extra config options... here's what I used:

    I now have my wifes laptop single coring... my Windows install single coring just to finish this half a WU it had going) and Linux/VMWare SMP...


    is anyone else using beta 6.02? does it get any extra points these days?

  5. 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 ^^

  6. Dang, I'll have to keep this in mind before I let them ship my stuff around...


    I think there's a bit more leniency at COT so I might be able to carry my storage drive with me to be safe, but for the most part everything I own will be going in plastic bins. I'm extremely hesistant to let them ship my homemade loudspeakers and $2000 stereo though. I might have them shipped professionally (with hella insurance) or take a week to U-Haul them myself to AZ.



    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!
