Some snow would go down well here ATM Mike.

G'day dalongki, I hope that you've been enjoying a glass or 3.

After spending the last 2 days clearing storm damage instead of washing the walls & ceiling in this room I've decided to have a rest day, it is Sunday after all.

Anyhow, I better rest up a bit more as Beer O'clock is only 2hrs away today. ;-)

Cheers.

The thing is that the US has been 1 of those bullies and thugs stirring up unrest around the world for decades now and it's about time it was stopped by all sides.

No cheers for stupidity.

I didn't read much about the US bullying and being thugs coming from Australia during WWII. Perhaps when China comes to call on Sydney the US will 'refrain' from 'bullying' them.........no, we don't abandon friends.

Now let's see, WWII, oh yes you Yanks sat on your arses while we were evacuating British colonials out of SE Asia and holding the Japs back until the Japs did Pearl Harbour, then your generals wanted to use us as cannon fodder to protect your troops (yeah nice allies).

U.S. policies since have done nothing other than trying to bully others into doing what yous want and if yous don't get your way yous just become thugs, no different to Russia, but seeing as you wear blinkers I guess that you just tend to ignore those things.

Cowboy culture or Cossack culture, it's all the same in the end and you wonder why China is gearing up with 2 idiot nations either side of it.

That's good to hear Clyde as we'll have less pointless gibberish posts to wade through for a while. :-)

Still no cheers here.

I apologize if I am anti-war and this bothers you. But it's my opinion. No one said you have to accept it. That's why this is a free country! (for now)
Wilson was anti-war until the Lusitania, FDR was anti-war until Pearl Harbor...........and the reason this is a free country is the blood shed by Patriots so you could have an opinion not supplied by the Government.

Everyone(who has actually been there) is anti-war, that doesn't mean you hide under the bed when threatened. It means you stand up to bullies and thugs.

The thing is that the US has been 1 of those bullies and thugs stirring up unrest around the world for decades now and it's about time it was stopped by all sides.

No cheers for stupidity.

By the time most CPU's get back to doing Guppi's again that will probably change back to what it was before.

The temp here has reached 30C (feels like 32C) ATM, but I did finally get my rear entry cleared of fallen branches (the rest can wait until tomorrow morning if it's not raining).

No sign of our storms returning just yet.

Cheers.

As of 23:40:04 UTC no work is being produced, resends only, so is it an indication that the GBT server maybe about to come online or are there probs in paradise?

I just got 2 large tree branches left that are blocking my rear driveway to deal with now.

The outdoor furniture and bins are back where they belong and the shade screens have been repaired.

Thor sure put on a wild 1 overnight here (I hope that he's enjoying the sound of all the chainsaws going off around here this morning), but that seemed to fit his design somehow..

All Hail Thor!!!

Cheers.

This Arecibo diet now has my 3570K rig well past 40K now, how far it will fall back when the Guppi's return will be interesting.

Well seeing as I can't get my front disk rotors and lower ball joints done until later next month I decided that I'll get my birthday present to myself even earlier, 2 Gainward GeForce GTX 1060 3GB should be here next week for my 2500K rig.

That will shave a bit more off the next power bill. :-)

Cheers.

We had a ripper of a storm go through here overnight so instead of getting back into finishing this room off I'll be outside cleaning up, hopefully I'll be finished before Weekend Beer O'clock and the heat gets here (32C expected here today).

Cheers.

Thor put in a mega performance here last night and well into this morning, it's just a shame that he took the power out for 8hrs.

All Hail Thor!!!

We had a wild time here overnight without power and it looks like I have a few things to put right this morning before it gets to hot.

Expecting 32C here today with more storms as well.

Cheers.

That sounds great Grant, but I did get a couple in for you today after doing a trip into town and while cleaning/moving/removing more stuff out of this room. Hopefully I'll have this job finished over the weekend.

I've got a good pile of old stuff for the guy down the road who just loves playing with ancient hardware so he'll be happy in his spare time.

Time to start thinking about having something to eat now.

Cheers.

Vic, I'm a pensioner too so I don't know where you get the idea that I have a huge income, but I won't waste good $'s on old outdated power hungry 2nd hand hardware that just sits around gathering dust as you have.

I prefer to just go for new mid range hardware that gets used straight away as I can afford it and sell off what I replace where possible.

I'm just about to clear another quarterly power bill, replace the front disk rotors and lower ball joints on my car and then I may just get another 2 GTX 1060's for my birthday present to myself, but I've saved up to do all that and without a credit card or Go Fund Me in sight.

Cheers.

I had to disable Norton Internet Security to install the lastest BOINC 7.6.33 since then I've been gettting errors and today Norton quarantined it.

" Filename: setiathome_8.00_windows_intelx86__cuda50.exe
Threat name: WS.Reputation.1Full Path: c:\data\boinc\projects\setiathome.berkeley.edu\setiathome_8.00_windows_intelx86__cuda50.exe"

Anyone else get this?

Why do people keep paying for such a piece of software crap after all these years? :-O

It hit 31C here today, but much better than mid to high 30's down the hill to the east and 40's down the western side.

So Wiggo, much as I like you, please, I do know what I'm doing.

The thing is Vic you've been spending all those few $'s of yours on obsolete parts back when I put my 2500K rig together (6yrs ago?) and your still no better off years later and I've replaced my old Q6600 setup with a 3570K plus gone through several GPU upgrades on both rigs in all that time.

Now lets see Vic, I've likely spent much less $'s on hardware than you over the years, but look at my RAC compared to yours.

I go forwards while you still go backwards, quite frankly you need a big change in direction and thinking buddy. ;-)

Cheers.

I don't have the problem, Brent. Jim said it was Cliff Harding who was having issue restarting after an exclusive app was polled. I am on the latest 7.6.33 and haven't had any BOINC issues for at least a couple of revisions back. I haven't seen the problem being discussed.

I'm on version 6.10.60 and there's been no problems for me, but then I don't move things about either.

Cheers.

Well it looks like Clyde is in his usual position facing the corner with his back to the world while he enjoys the corner scene from his fishbowl.

I'm sorry Clyde but your posts still reflect those of a Total Loser.

Thanks anyway, but we didn't expect any better.

Late answer to Thomas Jefferson.
I know one country very well.
202 years and counting without a rebellion:)

Hopefully, the need for a rebellion continues for another 202 years.

No sarcasm on my part. I really, as a descendant of Vikings, mean it.


Clyde,

Oh? Which country do you refer to?

No rebellion for 202 years?

Its not the USA...

No point in asking Clyde a question as he always finds way to post without answering the it. LOL

My PC vacuumed mostly

Vic, vacuuming a PC out is the worst thing in the world that you can do and is very likely the cause of all your hardware failures as all vacuum cleaners create static electricity and will discharge it whenever & wherever possible.

Use a compressor with a moisture separator instead.

Cheers.
