  1. Would you like some firearms or meth with your hotdog? Police: Calif. men sold guns from hot dog stand http://news.yahoo.com/police-calif-men-sold-guns-hot-dog-stand-194809043.html Wow.
  2. Nice, CB. I like that Dear God song too. Big two
  3. From perhaps one of the greatest live albums ever:
  4. 'Moss Man' fails to show up for trial http://news.ninemsn....ow-up-for-trial
  5. Police: Man impersonating cop pulls over real cop: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504083_162-20117342-504083.html Turns out the fake cop has an outstanding warrant for his arrest (go figure) P.S. Admins, when I inserted this link, it would not let me name it
  6. One of my most favorite bands. I saw them play in my small college (less than 2000 students) in the early 70's right before the this song became a big hit. The guitar player is Denny Dias and one poll has this rated as #40 out of 100 best guitar solos. Back in the day I was told I looked like the bass player, Walter Becker. P.S. Most people at my college didn't know who they were--never heard of them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTDRd0Z0O4o
  7. Wahoo! Think the 2600K is finally kickin' in: http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/user_overtake.php?s=&u=38923
  8. Make Sure Defrag Is Off On Your SSD In light of the popularity of Solid State Drives, most users know that they aren’t suppose to be defragmented, but because Window has automatic defragmentation built in by default, how do you know if it is turned off on your SSD? Here’s a simple way: 1. Open Start Menu, type dfrgui.exe 2. Right-click it and select Run as Administrator 3. Select your SSD 4. Click Configure Schedule and make sure Run on Schedule is not checked (If AHCI, Advance Host Controller Interface, mode was properly configured in your motherboard BIOS, Windows 7 should have detected your drive is SSD and disabled defragmentation, but, hey, it can’t hurt to check.)

  9. Good read: At 20, Linux is invisible, ubiquitous
  10. No offense, bob, but that pic infers that South Dakota borders Canada.
  11. Did you do the Step 1 and Step 2 in my last post? Toshiba site says there are three models of L455D: S5976, SP5012L, and SP5012M. Look on the bottom of yours for the additional numbers--which is it?
  12. Holy crap, I reread this post and I can't figure out how it got so out of whack. One person even infers that your problem is because you downloaded something illegal (none of their business really)and you are certainly not getting the help you need. I saw trojan in one of your posts, but that doesn't scare me. Lots of programs could say that, and it might not be true. Here is what I would do: 1. After you boot your computer, wait for the brand name/mobo screen (HP, Sony, whatever), then start pushing the F8 Key before Windows has a chance to load. That, if done correctly, should bring up the Window Boot Screen (black color). It has a lot of options, but the first one you should select is "Disable automatic restart on system failure." Reboot and use your computer until it does its system error thing. This may or may not generate an error code and the famous BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death). The error will start with 0x and have 5 more zeros then a number, usually 1, 2 or 3 digits. It would be very helpful to post that number if you get it. 2. Reboot again, F8, then pick "Last Known Good Configuration." Sometimes, if you are very, very lucky that is all you need. Have a go. Let me know--there are other options too.
  13. I would hold off on the reformat if I were you. Generally speaking, nothing is insurmountable. If your laptop came with no disks, it usually means the files you need are on a separate partition (sometimes hidden). I just worked on a new HP lappy that recovered everything nicely by using the f12 or (or something like that) key. Let me do some research and re-read this post to see why you can't System Restore. P.S. Please post the specifics of your lappy, make, model, etc. Also, is it not under warranty?
  14. I dunno. Could have been my folding key was wrong and I have to do 10 bigadvs again Will any program monitor v7? Right now it says it is doing a 6900 0xa5 @ 36:32. Nada on the big points. I have looked and looked in BIOS for a throttle down and found nothing. My board is a Gig Z68X-UD3-B3 Windows says I'm at 4.10 GHz.
  15. Have a 2684, 0xa5 at 43:30 TPF. Waitin' to see if it kicks me the big QRB. Don't know why this would kick in now--haven't done anything/changes.
  16. Thanks for the great tips, guys. It is possible that it throttles down. I am out of town for the weekend so I'll hit it hard when I get back. We'll get it to kick asskey. Thanks again folder-types!
  17. unc, I am running v7. smp:8 is TPF 1 hour 13 minutes, so something must be wrong. What does QBR mean? bigadv and big show up in parameter list. You use _ (client_type); I think it is - (client-type), a hyphen, right? I know it is picky. I cut and pasted my passkey from their e-mail, but I will check it again. Thanks, these are the things we need to know. P.S. I am overclocked to about 4 GHz. Edit 2: terry, it looks like I am doing a 6900 now--is that a bigadv?
  18. Yeah, doesn't seem like it , terry. I don't know how you guys get those huge points. I haven't had much time to diddle with it because of the flooding--it's running and says about 1300 PPD smp8 and 11,000 PPD GPU. I have bigadv in there, but it'll have to wait..... Are you guys getting bidadv's?

  21. Sounds like a bad (worn out) power button to me. I see a new case is in you future.
  22. I have been fortunate enough to update my main computer from a Q9550 Socket 775 and a GeForce 9800 GTX+ to the new Intel 2600K and a EVGA 460 GTX. Pretty pleased so far. Got it up and folding but not sure yet if I am maxing its potential yet--using bigadv and big max-packet-size. I did put in my folding passkey, so am waiting for bonuses. Still tweaking it and working out some bugs Here's the Pit test: http://www.pcpitstop.com/betapit/sec.asp?conid=24470919&report=Summary
  23. Just to set the record straight: I never joined their team--I did enter a contest to win a vid card and won a key for a program I never used
