A blank name again.
Awww, how sweet.

Did you expect any other result from Guy when he gets caught out on double standards again Sarge?

Even after all the proof of it that he deleted?

At least he can't delete the contents of his posts now, even if he can still change his name. ;-)

The problem is a blank name may say how much he values himself. Might be a clue that he is willing to do something "rash" in support of those things he rails for. Certainly wiping ones self away is not a thing a normal person does.

When has Guy not done anything "rash" when he's been caught out?

Cheers.

Well, https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-hate/extremist-files/ideology/sovereign-citizens-movement
Sovereigns believe that they — not judges, juries, law enforcement or elected officials — get to decide which laws to obey and which to ignore, and they don't think they should have to pay taxes. Sovereigns are clogging up the courts with indecipherable filings and when cornered, many of them lash out in rage, frustration and, in the most extreme cases, acts of deadly violence, usually directed against government officials.

Yeah we have a few of those idiots over here Gary, but thankfully our courts do deal harshly with them and their BS.

Cheers.

When will they bring the GPU version?


Search and read forums before asking: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=78860#1757876


I think it's fair to assume that the question would be asked in a thread with the title "No more GPU Units?"...after probably searching the forums and finding that title.

Who made you Lord of the S@H Forums, WezH? Get over yourself.

Actually the SETI@home main page would've been the best place to look as well as following the News link from there since yesterday, pretty simple and doesn't require a search at all (just looking in the right place helps for starters). ;-)

Cheers.

If it ever suggested that, then no, I never did. My last one would just repair itself from something on the hard drive that I couldn't access but it was set to look inside. That was a Vista laptop and this is a MUCH faster 8.1 laptop. I actually prefer Vista, 8.1 is just weird by comparison. But if Vista could repair itself then why can't 8.1??? Unlike you guys (I bet) I am not an IT guy and not a programmer, just a bumpkin strolling along gawking at all the purty lights....

That sometimes hidden repair partition is sometimes hidden, but all laptops that I know of when being reset back to "out of the box" software condition all laptops will give you a hint somewhere to make a backup just in the case of hard drive failure (and I've done hundred's of the things since manufacturers stop supplying backup media). ;-)

Cheers.

I tried installing Lunatics (sp) drivers (Win 7 64-bit), when I do nothing seems to work well. Basically nothing happens in boinc 8, no general app_info.xml so I copied the generic one. How can I get my GPU to reach for the stars like my Mc?

You have to wait until a new Lunatics installer to be issued before you'll get the latest V8 work and that is likely still a few hours away yet or go back to using stock apps.

Keep an eye out here for news of the new installer's release in this forum. ;-)

Cheers.

***GASP***

My laptop computer came with things installed and the power cord. That's all. No disk. No instructions. No mouse. Nothing. I bought it at Best Buy as a matter of fact. And I brought it there yesterday. She looked at the screen, was shocked, angry, then an unreadable expression. And rather vague about what it might be. She looked... umm... shaken, not stirred? They will look at it in three more days...

So are you saying that you didn't make the backup DVD's or USB thumb-drive that the laptop recommended when you 1st started it up? :-O

Cheers.

Test the drive with the stand alone boot testing software from the drive's manufacturer or test it plugged into another PC with the drive's manufacturer's OS dependent diagnostic software.

If it fails then check to see if you can still RMA it.

Cheers.

My main rig, that was set back to stock apps recently after a hard drive failure, is fully loaded now with MB's and I'm just waiting 2 Einstein tasks to finish on a GPU before going all out on them in an attempt to see if it'll sort out that "New Credit" crap before changing back to running optimised apps again (wishful thinking on my part there).

I'll leave my backup rig as it is until I'm sure that the new optimised apps are working well on most other peoples' rigs before I change that over.

Cheers.

...

CLYDE, you didn't really answer bobby's question. Of course speaking one's opinion is allowed. Bobby's question was, why is it that when someone else does it, you object to it? But when you do it, suddenly people are trying to censor you or you bring up the correctness of an opinion. Why is that?

Do you really expect Clyde to give any sort of sensible answer to anything? :-O

That's just impossible for him to do so I've found. ;-)

Cheers.

Posted 17 days ago by Profile Wiggo
If Trump wins then not only will the U.S of A. go further down the drain than it is now (and some of us foreigners will just laugh more with that comedy), but international relations may just become non-existent (It'll be just another Russia then). :-O

Are the generally sensible of those country-persons of yours going to let the fearful, greedy, self-centered and "I'm superior to the rest of yous" people take your country down that path?

Are they stupid enough to let him?

I (along with many others) certainly hope not.

Cheers.

Well no, anybody paying attention sees clearly that he's a tyrannical dictator.

Says the poster who claimed there are no toll roads in Texas and the US has the best economy in the world even though UNESCO stated that the US ranks second highest among all measured countries, with 23.1 per cent of children living in poverty, just under Romania's 25.6 per cent.
Guy why don't you get data not just voice paranoid opinions?


1) Why don't you show me someplace you can't go because of a toll road and

2) Try living *anywhere* outside the U.S. and then tell me you're staying because it's better.

The Law, by Fredriak Bastiat

After you've read that - not until then - can we talk about nuances of various political thought.

That's what I think. It is my thought that Sarge is absolutely necessary for my authority. Without that, anarchy will prevail.


For those that are interested in reading this, here's a translation into English. Should be of interest to those who want to understand the foundations of libertarian thought.

Well that wasn't enlightening at all as by the 2nd reference to "God" I wanted to go to sleep. :-O

though I may use that tonight if I can't get to sleep

If a person can't live in a mostly peaceful civilisation without "divine intervention" or determine their own course in life for the future without it, then we are damn forever to live in a society that doesn't progress. :-(

Git out of here!

That's just rubbish and all copies deserve to be sent to the recyclers IMHO (whether anyone cares). ;-)

Steve Smith won the toss again and decided that we'd bat 1st and set the target for a change and set India highest target set so far this series, 349 runs.

At 1-274 in the 37th over everyone here thought that the Indians had the game in the bag, but they crashed in a big heap losing by 25 runs.

Can the Indians win the last match?

I just got back after C.W.#1 cooked me dinner tonight (she's a good kid,....

Now I'm just going to sit back with a glass or 2 of sipping whiskey (another home made product) before bed. :-D

I've always had CPU tasks running on SETI because the system could never keep my systems supplied with GPU units.

Other than a few system outages & the weekly outages others haven't had any issues keeping their GPUs busy with Seti work.

Yep, until the seti V8 app changeover they've kept my GPU's fed 99% of the time.

But ATM those GPU's are doing a backup project of mine for the mean time until an optimized installer is released (I can wait). ;-)

Cheers.
