Has each one got a power meter attached?

No, Chris, just 4 of them, my top rigs. The killawatts instantly allow me to see if something has gone wrong. It the rig BSODs, or one of the GPUs downclocks, I can see it if the power usage drops.

There are some nominal differences if the WU mix changes, but I can suss out it something has gone away most of the time just by monitoring the power usage.

And they might be rocket fuel.

Ya never know 'round here.

Best be prepared, I guess. Gone fishin' otherewize.

I can't tell ya what they iz.
I'd have the NSA on my arse.

Oh, crap, they already iz.

Pleez tell the nice man over dere what Seti iz and what it's doing on my computers.

Eric might get a little pissed if I have to call HIM to explain it.

When I told him about the little green men, he gotz a little angry.

He does not understand what the kitties are doing with one of the most powereful computing clusters in the country in my living room.

Having almost every twilight zone episode bookmarked on my daily driver did not explain much to him either.

The kitties often visit a dimension known only to them. And myself.

A time and place that only we inhabit.
All others are welcome, but seldom visit.

LOL...that might've been a bad move.

I've often wondered what kinda radar I've been on just when they do the flyover heat signature checks that we all know they do just looking for pot growing ops.

One guy, four cats, WTF?
Just what is this guy doing with 12 thousand watts in his living room?????
I'm surprised they did not come knocking sooner.

Not bad.....but my old '67 Pontiac Le Mans could cover that in about 10 seconds or better.

Dyno'd at over 600 hp. At the freaking wheels. No estimations here.
Pink slips to prove it.

500+ cubes. As the old racer's saying goes..........

Tigger II knows something is up.

She has been so clingy for the last few days.

She sits here by me on the couch and won't leave me alone.

She insists on having her paws on me.
She is simply insistent.

I know it has something to do with me treating her eye infection.
Must be giving her some comfort.

But, there is something more in play here.

Kitty telepathy.
One kitty to another.

Squirrel arrives just now......I lift her so gently onto the couch in front of her foodsie bowl. A few nibbles.

So, I goes to this big freaking producer, and I says....Hey.....
I got a show for you. It's called cat home makeovers.....
Cats around the house doing home renovations and all like that.......And he says no way.
And I says..yeah, wayayy dude. You ever have a cat watch you change a cupboard hinge?? They are like, so into it, man. And refinishing.......wow. You just have to keep them from sniffing the chemicals too much or they get a little crazy.

Like, all these cats doing home makeover stuff. And they all snoopervise what is going on, man....and kinda help what is going on dude. That's what Lori always calls them, her little snoopervisers.

And then, it's like they steal my idea, but without the cats, ya see......

So bummed.

Anyways.......
Delusional, as some wipe called me?

No, this just came to me in a dream I had a few minutes ago.
You call me what you want, Mr. Bernie freaking Vine. I'll dream what I want.
And some shall call me a visionairy. And some shall call me a freak.
And many shall laugh at my inner visions. And that is why I share them......LOL.

There were like, man, these cats, all pawing at the cupboards....
And they like, all wanted to choose the final color and such. They guy made the wrong choice, and they were all hissing........

One, if he were a friend, understands that sometimes another person has to live in another world to survive.

And, given that, I have done a well bit better to do so than some who deal with the demons I have.

You call me down, Robert.

I know you are right in many respects.

But, baby, you have not walked even an inch in my shoes.

So, best get your mind straight.

I done more, I have experienced more, than most outside of the military friends I have have done so.

Just because I try to share with you some things I have experienced in my freaking teenage years with you........

I should have known better.

I did things at a young age that you would not believe.

Wrecked more cars and loved more women and drank more whiskey that ANY of you put together.

Guarantee.

Now, you want to ask me how did I come to this?

I just yesterday put a half a grand of simple exhaust in the Olds.
I run Seti like nobody others.
Six or seven hundred dollars a month in electricity.

And YOU have the gall to call me WHAT??
