  1. Lets keep the trend going, hijack Obamas hashtag on twitter #NowIsTheTime (check out just how into this they are, just look at WhiteHouse.gov)

     

    Though at the moment I belive there are more PRO-2nd amendment tweets than there are against, I'd call this successfully hijacked.

     

    But we should keep posting with that hashtag, that way ANYONE who visits Obamas or the whitehouse twitter or whitehouse.gov and clicks on these links gets to see OUR voice instead of theirs.

    It was successfully hijacked. Can't see a single pro-2nd Am tweet right now.


  2. Almost screwed my chances at future employment.

    So i was writing out my resume, to apply for some more part time stuff, and i wanted to add that i have been working as a shot gun instructor... well at the club we call that position shotgunning instructor... well luckily before i submitted it i decided to see if i had the right spelling for that word... i can just see the employment office chuckling over that one.


  3. funny story, my cards have some very slight whine, i think its from the caps or something, which i have been told its normal, so im in the room farthest from my computer, i hear whining and its getting louder, then i realize it must be one of my cards, i run to the other room, tripping over a dog in the process to find its the train i live next to and its got squeeky brakes

    lol. Atleast yours has a happy ending, just got home and my computer was off, apparently it hit my shutdown temp of 90C already... its april for goodness sake! I didn't quit till may last year.


  4. Hey, i guess i wanted to start a bad day thread on OCC cause i didnt find one already

    so if you have a bad day, post it here!

    I had a bad day today, my sister's car got all 4 tires slashed by some kids who were banging on our door at 8pm till 11pm

    horrible horrible

    no idea what to do

    any of you guys had a bad day today as well?

    Ouch... call the cops. Though personally if they were causing that much fuss i would have warned them, then loaded my shotgun with low velocity bird shot. They never come back, can't imagine why....


  5. Now that your rolling you will probably begin to catch up with me. I am already struggling with thermal shutdowns. 9th of april and it reached 85F yesterday. I cant afford to run the AC already so i'm having to scale back my folding. Got home at lunch and the gpu was reaching triple digits and the cpu had bounced of 80C. I might be babying my system but i don't like running at those temps.


  6. i dont know man this is client v7 its all strange to me

    Yeah, me too. Thats why im still using v6. It just works, no confusing setup, no cluttered gui. Sorry i can't help you more.


  7. Spoiler tag anyone?

    I'm not sure what would cause it with just one gpu, but i know that if you have two clients trying to fold on the same core it will do that. eg make sure one is gpu_ 0 and the other is gpu_1.

    Jesus. Why do you buy overpriced stuff? :lol:

     

    My Kobalt stands were less than 1/2 of that!

     

    Because they don't have this crappy construction that can split which I don't trust.

    If it makes you feel any better, the jack's $130. 

     

    You have no clue how bad oreillys just screwed you over. I bought a pair of 3 ton jackstands for $15 bucks.... And they have held almost that weight several times so they aint flimsy.

     

     

    Brand? Where? I wouldn't put myself under a car with $15 jack stands, but that's just me. 

     

    They look just like the ones in the pic i quoted, no clue on brand, i bought them at a mom and pop hardware store. He had a super cab 3500 sitting on a set of them so im not worried about my little nissan. Andi have personally put an extended cab RAM 3500 on them, so im not worried.

  10. So i get to home depot. Pick out my pipes and joints and go looking for the box thing.

    They have it in .5" or .75" not what im after. So i'm going to swing by lowes and see what they have. Probably be monday by then.

    The thinking on this was that those sizes would restrict the air too much, how big do y'all think the minimum should size i should consider should be for the best compromise on airflow?

    EDIT: And did i mention, PVC is ridiculously expensive!! $2 for a 1.25" 45 degree elbow, $2.5 for a 90....

    This project was supposed to be quick and fun, but then thats the way all my projects start...


  11.  

    Well I have it here and its all plugged in and it looks... tolerable for now, then again I have to connect everything through component RCA plugs because the HDMI ports dont work.

     

    Also its from 2007 and its a plasma not an LCD, only 1366 x 768 too.

     

    Vizio VM60P HDTV10A.

    Also its making annoying whining noise as well, I wonder what else is wrong with it that the guy neglected to mention.

     

    "Neglected to mention." You're making it sound like the guy screwed you by giving you a free TV. :rolleyes:

     

    I know right. Andrew, its FREE for goodness sakes, be glad it works.


  12. Sooo been working overtime all week. But tomorrow i should be able to get to lowes and pick this stuff up. Wish I'd thought of this a week ago when i had some free time cause I'm hurting for some dry boots. I hate having to dig rice out of my boots every morning.

     

    Shopping list:

    Some kind of distributor box, im thinking like a electric box?(you know like you put in the wall)

    2 90 degree angles

    2 45 degree angles

    28" pipe. (14 each side)

    I'm thinking 1" pipe. Not really sure.

    Lol, kind of off topic but I thought I would add to the stupid rich people theme.

     

    The other day I was in a store called de ja vu audio. The specialize in high end audio.

     

    This guy walks in with a suit case, walks past everyone, goes right to the western electric horns and says "I want that one". The owner of the store said, "ok, that will be $45,000" for a 10% down payment PLUS you will have to buy a dac, amp, so forth and so on. He said "that's ok", opens up the suit case with 100K in it.

     

    So he ends up putting the speakers in his home, and due to the size of the speakers, they pretty much take up the whole living room.

     

    The wife goes ballistic. She says either the speakers go, or I go. So after a fight, the guy leaves. Leaves his house, his wife, everything and takes the speakers with him.

     

    The wife up and leaves too. They leave the 5.2 million dollar home to the owner of the audio store.

     

    Believe it or not......this happens more often than not.

    How'd you find all this out? :lol:

     

     

    And remember - the real "rich" people are the ones you'd probably never suspect.

     

    Yeah. I recently discovered that the little old man who i see at the gas station for lunch every so often and who comes out and hangs at the farm occasionally is the owner of the farm, and a huge multinational company... You would never know it to look at him, or to spend time with him, though you would once you saw his house..

    I withdraw from the best sig voting, so that's a win for Stoner, congrats. :)

    You weren't going to win anyway.

     

     

    Exactly, so I'm just letting him get the award sooner rather than later. :lol:

     

     

    How can you withdraw from an award since other people nominated you for it ?

    Then I withdraw from running in the "Most Bannable Member/Staff" award and the "Most Annoying Member" award :lol:

     

    You can't. Suck it up and deal.
