So, now that the home improvement project is pau, I rewarded myself with a new laptop. I was ready for one anyway.

What ya get? And is it crunching as well!


Laptops are prone to heat issues when crunching. Probably best to set the preferences to run around 75% and monitor it closely.

It's a good, energy efficient Core i7. I have it set to crunch on all eight "processors" but soon it will be cut back to only four. As it is, the energy efficient settings shut the machine down when it is not being used, but I have been using it a lot during this period of loading software and learning about new features.

I am happy to report passing the 4M mark in SETI credits. It seems like this is a good time to give my machines a rest.

Congrats on both the new machine and your 4M mark!

Whew! Made it to the weekend on a pretty good week for the markets. I hope this signals an upturn for the EU and the rest of the world economy. Whatever happens, it seems like it will happen slowly, which is unfortunate for those who are struggling.

You were right, Michael, but most of what we are seeing, whether up or down, is emotional rather than fact based.

Your correct their Qui' and emotions tend to reflect more in the markets when they go down rather then when they go up. When the true facts finally become known you watch the emotions run wild in these markets then.

My University's football team is doing lousy. I hope the second half goes better.

I used to look forward to weekends; but this weekend will be a window-washing festival. At least it won't need to be done for another six months.

Getting ready for Thanksgiving can be stressful, but that's only the start. For those of us that are trying to keep our weight under control, this run of holidays is even more challenging.

Actually I'm under strict instructions to put weight on. Now, that is 10 times harder than losing it !

I just got back from a trip to Vegas. Both the Woman's Volleyball Team and I came home winners.
