I'm sorry to hear about your sad news Mike. :-(

Well I've had 1 of those days today with half of it spent in town (it was bloody freezing in there) and now I'm just having an hours rest before heading out for the night. :-)

It's good to see you back Grant. :-)

Well I think that I can squeeze in a rum or 2 before I get picked up so I better go and get the 1st.

Cheers.

Australia needs to buy a new map.

According to Glenn, they probably couldn't afford it! But if we clubbed together we could send them a copy of Captain Cooks maps. He seemed to know where he was.

Nah, I wouldn't bother as we have copies of those a plenty as well as copies by Dirk Hartog & Abel Tasman, not to mention the updated version by Bass and Flinders. ;-)

Cheers.

Don't work too hard Gordon. ;-)

I just finished enjoying afternoon beers with another 2 mates. :-D

Now I'll have to think about something to eat.

I know, I'll have a rum while I decide.

Cheers.

And happy Thorsday to you Julie.

It's been a good 1 here, except for the constant rain (and not a bit of thunder to be heard).

All Hail Thor!!!

Cheers.

My 2 i5 rigs' CPU's make up around 20% of their total RAC alone without fuss so why not use them?

most of those MB's I got for the 3570K were shorties. :-(

Cheers.

I wish I had that issue. I like to shorties. I think the reason why I like them is because it gives you a sense you are getting more work done.

But I go through around 8 of those every hour on that rig. :-(

Cheers.

Man 8 in an hour is this a few. I possibly go through 4 an hour with current runtimes running to the time on my 970 2 at a time

That's just on the CPU, it's GPU's will do 24 shorties in that time. ;-)

Cheers.

G'day Gordon, at work again I take it?

Around here we want it brown so that our mowers can be put away for a few months, but this rain is just undoing the frosts that we've had so I've got at least 1 more mow to do. :-(

But on a brighter note I just finished an extended LBB with a couple of mates. :-D

Cheers.

I run AP's only nowadays. When there are no AP's (which is often these days), it's idle time.

For now I have 34 AP GPU tasks left, and no AP CPU tasks.

I just like to keep my CPU's happy with AP's while I just letting my GPU's feast on MB's.

Damn, most of those MB's I got for the 3570K were shorties. :-(

Cheers.

Since we are now back from the outage I checked to SSP to see how many APs were being split, I'm disappointed.

Yeah, I've just had to let my main rig's CPU have another feed of MB's to keep it happy.

Cheers.

I just had to let my 3570K have another feed of MB's. 100 of them just isn't enough whereas a 100 AP's will keep it occupied for 5 days. :-(

Cheers.

G'day Zapped, may your beers be well chilled.

Sadly this rain is to hang around until sometime late tomorrow. :-(

Cheers.

Now I understand why Germaine left Australia, your loss, our gain.

Hahahahahaha........

You can keep her, her bad attitude, bad behavior, bad morals and those huge chips on her shoulders.

Oh wait, that describes some around here too. :-O

Cheers.


Yourself?

A typical childish response from someone who can't take the truth about their idol, or themselves. :-D

Cheers.

Actually the 960 would be just short of a 770 in performance while using around 55% of the power of a 770.
