G'day Julie & Grant.

I've been keeping very busy this year, but today is beer bottling day so I'll be in my brewroom soon and that's where I'll be until Beer O'clock in about 4hrs time.

Cheers.

Rather than edit my last post:

The advantage of both 2 & 3 is that they give a consistent score per task that is totally independent of the processor or application employed. Thus if one has a very fast processor your score per hour will be higher than a low end processor, also it will be a very simple to compare between the various optimised and non-optimised applications.

Now that I totally agree with.

Cheers.

G'day everyone.

Well, winter time has finally arrived here, in the highlands down under in the last week, but it's also making me wait to bottle my latest beer brew.

Cheers.

to other projects that pay just as much as SETI@home use to or even better.

Cheers.

Show me project that pays (actually, that pays more than electricity costs) and I consider to crunch it to rise money for new hardware. Until then "pay" just disguise for "offer me more bragging rights" Not so nice sounding to use it for complaining, yeah?

Coming from you, you should know exactly what I think of that and that hasn't changed any in the last few years (far to literal and greedy = an**). ;-)

Cheers.

It's good that I'm just running stock ATM as I can see that once I go Lunatic's (where is that MB V7 free version that we should've had to start with?) and start doing multiple tasks I can see these causing me the same problems that "Arecibo" VLAR's do. :-(

Cheers.

Well my 3570K rig (that was out of action for several weeks at the end of V7 MB and came back online just after the V8 MB intro) has gone from a nice gentle rise to a 28,800 RAC under stock (expected to reach around 29,500 at the time), to an extreme drop (currently down to 22,000) which doesn't look like stopping any time soon.

My 2500K has just topped out at just over a pitiful 14,000 RAC (which has only been using it's GPU's here since the 19th of April) and I'm expecting that to drop now as well.

What was wrong with the system we were using back in the MB V5-6 days?

At least a person could make direct comparisons back then, but then we got slammed (thanks to you know who) coming up to V7 and now after the weeks of CPU's only and the combo CPU/GPU V8 stock testing I've been doing has been made totally useless and for nothing now as the try line is being moved again.

It's just good that I like this project so much or I'd be off to other projects that pay just as much as SETI@home use to or even better.

Cheers.

Guns & sicko's...

Probably Domestic (Young children 'spared') .

Time will tell.

Someone in that family really pissed off someone.
All of the victims are members of a family called Rhoden,

Does this wording indicate immigrant? Perhaps some score to be settled from the home country?

ALL Americans are Immigrants, or Descendant's of Immigrants.

Including 'Native Americans'.

Just a case of ‘hillbilly justice’ you think Clyde?

Oh yes, that's right, I forgot, it's just the American way of life and culture hey?

Cheers.

CLYDE, why do you insist on addressing Bernie as WinterKnight? Do you believe the same poster has 2 accounts?

That just Clyde being, well, Clyde.


Still awaiting your answer. In any thread.

It also looks like Clyde can't use the advanced search facility either, but unlike Clyde I don't like sounding like a broken record repeating myself continually.

Cheers.

Oh Clyde, you just keep reinforcing our opinion of you.

You just can't stay on track, 1 moment you're defending stupid things as "the American way of life" or it's "our American culture" and then in the next minute you back flip on same/similar stupid things with your useless left/right rants. Do you have a problem making your mind up on which is what?

In the end none of them are satisfactory answers in any way, shape or form and I doubt that you could ever give a satisfactory answer (as we've yet to see 1) even if your life depended on it.

Also it seems that lately you can't even remember who you're replying to. Is your memory slipping?

If you can't start to do any better then you might as well give up trying to change that general opinion of you, but as usual I guess you'll just make this out as another name calling attack on you as you regularly do.

As for Trump, if he wins that'll just make the U.S. a tie for number 1 spot of countries that are likely to destabilise the whole world (and havn't you guys done enough of that in the Middle East already?) or start WWIII.

Cheers.

This morning here in the highlands kicked off at 4C (feels like 2C), but no frosts yet (and they're late), and heading for a max of 20C.

Cheers.

The trees around here are now into their full autumn colours and I had to run the mower around the yard 2 days ago just to pick up all the dead leaves.

G'morning everyone, from a chilly start in the highlands down under.

Well I've had a busy week, but I did get 6 cartons of beer bottled up yesterday immediately followed by 6 beers down the bottom pub.

Anyhow Beer O'clock is now only 5hrs away.

Cheers.
