Please close this thread. I'm outtah this board.

If you folks haven't noticed it yet, the cold war is back. Perhaps it's time to read Churchills "Iron Curtain" speech again:

Face it too that Crimea did what majority of its inhabinants wanted to do, you can call it opportunism or add another negative labels, but fact is the same.

And regarding prices - just LoL, do you mean that IMF will give money just for bright Julya's eyes? Don't make laugh my slippers. But again, the fact remains, discounts were and discounts were quite a long times. And such discounts did good for Ukraine. Yes, Russia did discounts not just for free, but it did them. And it's the fact.

Stop it Raistmer. You're making a fool of yourself by this insane support of the criminal Putin and his equally criminal country.

Nobody in the free world (Russia is not free, it is a dictatorship, and the world knows that the recent so called elections was rigged) believe anything that comes through the Russian propaganda machine, so you might as well stop your actions for the criminal country of Russia now, while you still have some traces of credibility left.

The credibility you once had as a reasonable person is sinking faster than a rock in water now. We in the free world know exactly what Russia is planning.

23+ hours later (3 Apr 2014, 15:24:00 UTC ), at 10,907.24 feet (RAC). Lost 24911 feet (RAC) since March 6th. It ain't over yet....

RAC dropping much slower now. As of now (5 Apr 2014, 11:17:11 UTC), at 10,589.25 feet (RAC). Lost 25229 feet (RAC) since March 6th.

22 hours later, I see a tendency of the RAC levelling out. Let's see if that's the case, or if it's just temporary.
Now (6 Apr 2014, 9:19:25 UTC), at 10,535.01 feet (RAC). Lost 25283 feet (RAC) since March 6th.

Now (7 Apr 2014, 15:10:32 UTC) at 10,478.37 feet (RAC). Lost 25340 feet (RAC) since March 6th. Slowly but steadily it seems to level off now. I can breath the air at this altitude, without any oxygen mask.

@ CC: Not a spritz cookie press
@Wiggo: Yes, the handle can be moved up and down, in the up position you can open the hinge, and load something in the device.
@John McLeod VII: No not a sausage press
@Julie: Not used in navigation.

Clue: The handle can be moved up and down, in the up position you can open the hinge, and load something into the device.

Trouble on the horizon?
Cricket graph dropping considerably.
http://fragment1.berkeley.edu/newcricket/grapher.cgi?target=/router-interfaces/inr-211/gigabitethernet6_17&ranges=d%3Aw&view=Octets

I think that's because of no more APs to send out. Splitting stopped hours ago and now the cache is dry.


Even with MB only the graph is usually much higher than that. I tell you, this is the end of the world as we know it :-)

Do the name pepper mean any thing at all?

No, the name pepper does not mean anything when it comes to this tool.

Edit: First clue will be given tomorrow, when I'm at work. In about 12 hours time. I would be suprised though, if someone here haven't posted the right answer by then.

О каком насилии Вы говорите? Кто? Где? Я видел много лжи о Крыме на телевизионных каналах украинского ТВ. Показывают и теперь. Интересно увидеть танки и солдат где-то. А подписано - в моём городе!!! А пропоганда Путина получается супер эффектна. Действует на умы и в прошлом (Машина времени у него что ли?) Думал так же и до Путина. И повторяю- Мы рады вернуться домой без крови. Если это сделал Путин - спасибо и ему.

Jomenvisst :-) Mig tycka Putinista vara trist.

Живу в Крыму. Большинство, (на самом деле) очень рады возвращению Крыма в состав России. Считаем, что Крым был оккупирован Украиной. Теперь мы вернулись домой. В Евросоюз и не собирались. В западной Украине - возможно и есть желающие. Только такие и Европе не нужны.
Сергей.


Cute Putinista propaganda.
Google Translate (bad):

Live in Crimea. The majority (really) are very happy to return Crimea to Russia. We believe that Crimea was occupied by Ukraine. Now we are back home. The European Union and did not intend. In the Western Ukraine-perhaps is wanting. Only such and Europe does not need.
Sergey.

I've been doing a test myself Sten with this old setup that I have a thread on (and just updated, so I'll just quote my latest update here if you don't mind).

Update.

Well after almost 8wks of this test the highest RAC I've seen so far is 10,800 while mainly doing AP's (it's down 1000 atm due to finishing up a lot of MB tasks), but that's nowhere near the 24,000 RAC that this hardware configuration use to get doing MBV6 alone.

Cheers.

Keep up the good work.

Cheers.

Yes, it's pretty clear that CreditNew is totally screwed up. I wanted to see it for myself, and by doing 100% MB, and no AP at all, I will really see the big difference.

I think for the sake of the sanity of the participants on the board (that all knows what we're talking about) it would be better if you have your own thread for the stock test :-) Go for it James, that test should be interesting indeed.

Ok then, I will start my own thread. That way folks wont get confused of who is doing what.

I am going to torture myself and do MB and AP on the CPU, Plus run MB on my GTS-250. I want to see if there is any RAC advantage to run without op apps. But I might try running just MB straight up after I see what happens.

The hard part will be getting an average RAC for this machine. The stats graph looks like mountains and valleys. You can definatley see when we run out of AP work. I just might take the high and low and do the average.

So a few more days untill I clear my cache, And then I will open my own thread.

Sten, Thanks for doing this test. You have inspired me to do my own.
I still say you will level out at 8,000.


To make it easier to see the differences, just do 100% stock MB first, and then after that has levelled out 100% AP. Mixing AP and MB will not let you see the difference in RAC when running either MB or AP only. As you say, the stat will only be mountains and valleys, depending upon availability of AP, if you run both MB and AP at the same time.

OK, I'm alive.
Here we go. This should be an easy one I think.
What is it called, what is it used for?

Celt, you're right, on a farm, but wow! Volunteer got it right first, though rob did, too. Volunteer tester is the winnah!

PM on the way!


Thank you! Time to sleep for me here in Sweden now though (it's very late, or very early, depending on how you look at it), so a new mystery tool will have to wait until tomorrow some time.

You got there first - I was about to say a barn chain hoist - last one I used was when we were moving sacks of feed around in a friend's barn

Well, let's see if it is what I think it is. I do believe though, that knowing it (if it is right) really shows first of all my age, and secondly that I was raised on a farm :-)

Maybe the same can be said about you? :-)

An Overhead Crane for Hay. Was installed on an old farm somewhere.

Edit: This seems to be a similar type: a 100 year old antique refurbished cast iron F E Meyers hay trolley.

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of WUs suddenly stopped crunching, and was abandoned on all computers in the entire universe...
