I think.
I have done it all.......
Been top cruncher at times.
Duffed off lately cause of of the heat.\

Some of you have been here through it........some do not have a clue.
Not a freaking clue what I am talking about.
Not a dime's worth of clueness.

I have dismissed one or two good minds.
An Intel master and a code master........
I am sorry for both transgressions.
\

Witnessed a lot of thingys.

Offered up a web addy a few weeks ago.
Eric does not seem to want it.

You all have fun with the project.

I am not having much fun here anymore.


Tell Lora (Lori) I love her...she is kinda mad at me right now.

Some of you never understood my 60's references anyway.
Meowsigh.

You could cut back, as I have, but it's hard to leave altogether. These boards can get boring at times, but then you look in, out of curiosity, and see something that interests you. If your RAC is "0" you can't post.

You've done a lot of crunching for the project. You've made your mark. There's no need to continue at this level--there are lots of volunteers.

Simple answer Mark. Slow down because of the heat, tick over in the background, then come back when it's cooler. No big deal, you have nothing to prove to us :-)

Thank you for saying that, my friend.

I have 9 rigs here for what?

I am not sure anymore.

I gave Eric a website.......he has not done anything with it nor answered my emails for a fortnight. It was a freacking gift to the project.

I always wished to be better than 'a lots of volunteers'/.
They are many, I am few.

But since my first involvement, I wanted to make an impact.
Something worth noting......something worthwhile in my life.

A footnote in a project the well might outlive me.

Two words - "oscar" and "carolyn"

Those of us who helped you make that happen, remember.

I hear the Dark side calling you - tell it "NO".
(Yeah, easier said than done. But you have, and can again.)

Kitties, and kitteyetts.\\

None of you have ever had my passion for the project.\

Thanks for your support. But NONE of you has done, or even tried to have done.......what I have.

Many thousands of dollars, for many years.
Think about this.
I have burnt thousands of bucks in electricity each year for what, 11 years now?
I never expected a return...........no, it was a gift, an investment with no possible return. At least not in my lifetime,.

Be very careful, my friend, when you invoke the name Oscar.

He was not just a kitty to me, he was a grand cat.

I knew Oscar, you did not really know Oscar.

Mark, You can cut back and survive. You may recall that I was right up with you for a while. I had 12 over clocked quads but cut back when GPU's took over. What you have accomplished is nothing short of amazing. Oh and I sort of ruffed a few feathers too. Seems to be the way of things. But I still enjoy the contribution, comradery and hope that we will find et. Don't be too hard on yourself. Hey it's more fun than golfing, but not as much as sailing.

And might I remind some of the younger denizens of these boards.........

Oscar was a dear cat that Lori and I lived with for few many years longer than you.
He was a grand Maine Coon cat that gave his life to cancer.

Might as well ban the word 'bitch'.....
I used that one last post.
Or 'bark'......you know that can haz nasty connotations./
Bark, or barking...or barker....and the french version barcker must be banned as well. As should the French proverbial verbage, fuchazes vous. LOL.

Are you bored with the project, or are you mad because Eric didn't use your website?

*confused*
