50 separate school shootings have now occurred this year in the U.S. and the year hasn't finished yet.

Are the lives of your children/grandchildren over there worth so little just so you can have the right to own your guns without any good reason?

Its worth noting that pre-fabricated houses are virtually all timber framed, and assembled on site from flat panels. If you want a traditional bricks and mortar house that has to be built on site from scratch. We don't see many timber framed houses in the UK, but you do in Canada and America.

I think that Vic means is what we call a relocatable home Chris. ;-)

I've only ever used air cooling here as I've never felt the need for water cooling, but I always make sure that I have a well ventilated case to go along with my rigs. ;-)

In all the time that I've been building PC's and running SETI I've yet to come across a stock HSF that will handle the heat. ;-)

I've got something that's itchy,...


..., but it's not my bum. ;-)

Cheers.

Perhaps a crazy woman could scratch it for you.

Yeah perhaps you're right Monday, I'll go down the bottom pub and see what No.2 is doing.

Cheers.

Some drives still have problems with certain brands of media Gordon. ;-)

Anyhow, I think that I'll wonder down the hill to see if I can get into any trouble tonight. :-D

we don't use data just from 1970's down under we are smarter than some .


THIS SEPTEMBER WAS THE HOTTEST SEPTEMBER SINCE WE STARTED KEEPING RECORDS EVER

but some would have you all think climate change has stalled !.....


Please EXPLAIN record September being the hottest ever if not for man and his machines .

I keep hearing that Glenn, but it certainly wasn't very hot here that month with easterlies blowing in off the sea instead of westerlies from the blast furnace and snow just down the road, not to mention the rain. ;-)

Hi Folks,
Just encountered a major problem.
I installed the latest Nvidia driver all seemed well BUT my rig has started locking up big time, as soon as BOINC has been running a few mins my rig locks up.
I don't know if this is something specific to my rig or if that driver will screw up any rig running BOINC!

I've reinstalled a prior driver, but my rig still locked up again.

Its possible BOINC has been compromised by my having had to manually do 3 system resets with BOINC and clients active:-(

So I'm going to try a reset and see it that sorts it out, I'll remove ap_info.xml 1st and save the data folder and see if it gets sorted.

Regards,

Cliff, neither of your video cards are "pre-Fermi" so I really don't know why you are posting in this thread. ;-)

Cheers.
