No one during that period was free of disgust...

Allied Multinationals supplied Germany during WWII

IBM

... & if you think bankers causing the 2008 crash was bad...

"Sensing Adolf Hitler's lust for war and conquest, Schacht, even before Hitler rose to power in the Reichstag, pushed for an institution that would retain channels of communication and collusion between the world's financial leaders even in the event of an international conflict. It was written into the Bank's charter, concurred in by the respective governments, that the BIS should be immune from seizure, closure, or censure, whether or not its owners were at war. These owners included the Morgan-affiliated First National Bank of New York (among whose directors were Harold S. Vanderbilt and Wendell Willkie), the Bank of England, the Reichsbank, the Bank of Italy, the Bank of France, and other central banks. Established under the Morgan banker Owen D. Young's so-called Young Plan, the BIS's ostensible purpose was to provide the Allies with reparations to be paid by Germany for World War I. The Bank soon turned out to be the instrument of an opposite function. It was to be a money funnel for American and British funds to flow into Hitler's coffers and to help Hitler build up his war machine."

Isn't it about time we actually learned from history?

That's why I like my Windows Home Server, excellent just for those reasons alone. Currently installing 149 updates, with more to come :-(

Keeping an eye on the temps for now - currently at 48.9 for the cores & 29 for the gpu.

While checking out the system when that autochk issue cropped up, found 1x120mm fan dead with another not running right. As they are the originals from new (2008), have ordered a set of new ones & might as well replace them all.

What grieves me about today's new is that we are one step closer to serious bloodshed, and I fear that all too soon we will see body bags being returned to mothers.


I've felt that for the last decade. Too many are focusing on the more obvious "emotional media" & not looking closely at the underlying agenda & believe me, it's there!

Politics & Religion is a bloody sad reason to die for

Thanks, as soon as I saw those I zapped the drive (fortunately, not long after installing the new components I booted up WHS & backed it up - phew).

Should have zapped it some time ago as not done a clean re-installation since swapping over from the Win 7 beta.

Boy is this baby fast now :-)

As for boinc, no sweat just copied over the program data info and all eight cores running with max temp so far 31.8 (gpu steady at 29c atm).

Having problems with Photobucket atm otherwise I would have you all laughing.... After reinstalling win 7 ran pc wizard & the temps duplicated themselves - 1st lot seemed ok but the second said all cores running at 255.9 (took a snapshot) :-)

Only problem now is reinstalling all my programs :-(

After a reboot, it started Windows but before the log in screen got "autochk program not found - skipping autochk, seconds later get a BSD "0xc000003a fatal system error".

System shutdown, but it does not, just keeps the bsd showing.

I knew I should have left this till the weekend :-(

@Zalster use the program gigabyte OC-guru that came with the mb.

With all the hulabaloo regarding Microsoft's Windows Operating System it seems that it will be Linux instead that cripples the Internet...

Oh dear...

Honestly peeps!!! That is the Waily Fail, what do you expect ..... If you will read such a down market Tabloid, it is no wonder you will get misled.

The eventual answer came in the middle of Tuesday afternoon when a statement from Warwick Castle confirmed that they had been testing fireworks.

The truth


& from that BBC link...

"We've seen a number of different effects, including the vortex images that have been reported," the spokesman said. "As yet we don't know what causes the phenomenon but it's certainly a spooky spectacle."

not much difference between either report then.

Gigabyte 970A-DS3P (Have swapped over to Gigabyte as the last 5 Asus boards pci-e slots died within 3 years)

Booting up this afternoon, within 15 minutes same thing happened with no crunching.

MB/GPU issues? After rebooting, it is now showing this...



...and has been running for close to 30 minutes with no issues (so far), with cores running about 22/24c & gpu at 37c.

@Zalster... Coolermaster Cosmos 1000

Will check later to see if top fan area can accommodate 140mm (inaccessible due to location & will have to shutdown and pull out to gain access to top).

Haven't had this situation arise on any of my rigs in a long time. Over an hour ago, rig suddenly froze & after waiting a short time resorted to rebooting.

For nearly forty five minutes, it kept getting to the log in point then froze, so shutdown. After letting it cool down somewhat, rebooted and able to log in.

All cores running at 100% & over 54c with gpu at 67c. Suspended gpu crunching and using the web prefs reduced cpus to 75% & 90% use. No effect 10 minutes after updating so set local prefs.

CPU's now dropping to 48.1/50.6c with gpu down to 48c.

Anyone with ideas on how to improve this rigs cooling?

Is that meant to be US or U.S.? If U.S., then let's hope that NATO does not get involved or it will be US!

I don't know who US is with what I now know about secret agreements. I notice gold and oil traders are not showing much worry over this; I find that interesting.


..yeah, they don't care, they'll only begin to worry once the bombs start falling...

..and even then they'll still die trying to earn loadsa $$$$

Yes, so long as you're not making a major hardware change OEM disks are fine, just don't try them when you change both the motherboard and CPU to a totally different type as that is when you could run into problems.

Cheers.


That's the main reason why I prefer VLK's. It took 30 secs max to activate both Win 7 Pro & MS Office on my new cruncher regardless of how many changes I make (as long as I don't install on more than 11 rigs)

...and all because one man disliked the Ukraine influenced by the EU...


What a cynic statement... No, absolutely not because "one man", because half of country...


...so to get what they want, they're prepared to kill the other half?

Now that is cynical!

Lol, at least slower is better than faster in that respect. Reminds me of my exams.

They tested two at a time, and did not allow conferring. After two hours, we were sweating buckets, so he asked us a question and allowing conferring, left the room...

...returned some time later with three coffees, saw the panic on our face and burst out laughing...

...it was an unanswerable question then he told us we had passed.

The sheer relief...

I wonder if the dead would agree with you?

As long as it isn't US dead.

I can see his worry that ties to the West will eventually lead to joining NATO; he is surrounded as it is and he doesn't want it getting tighter.


Understandable I suppose, but I wonder if the dead would agree with you?

If it was a cruncher only rig, I would more than likely consider it, but it is my workhorse, so no chance (do have gpu crunching on gpugrid though with very little noticeable affect).

Posted 2 days ago by Profile Sirius B
It's been a while, but if you boot directly from the install CD, does it not also give you the option of deleting the partitions from the target HD?


You beat me to it... yes it does.

How sad!

Just proves the point that $$$$ & property is more valuable than human life.
